I was able to find some time on Sunday to do a little creating and I was challenged to create a card using a new technique. This means a new technique to me. I choose to learn how to make 3D flowers. Stampin' Up! has a video showing different ways to make these flowers. I used Filter Paper to make this card. The video showed using 3 sheets of Filter Paper but I only used one since I knew I wanted to make a card with it.
After making the flower I took Stampin' Spritzer filled with alcohol and Strawberry Slush ink refill. Shook it then sprayed it on the flower. As I did I would scrunch the flower up. I did this cause I wanted to have part of the flower retain the white to it.
Since I used Strawberry Slush for the flower, I then went through my DSP to see which paper coordinated with it. Confetti Celebration was a winner :D. Next I went looking for a sketch and came across this beauty that I had pinned to my Card Sketch Board on Pinterest.

As I mentioned yesterday, my daughter had her first day of school. I was a little nervous as she was going to a new school for us with a new start time. Instead of getting on the bus at 8:20 she now has to get on at 7:50. For someone who isn't a morning person (just like her Mommy), we weren't sure how it was going to go. She was so excited though she got right up and even had breakfast (I made her a special one - eggs, bacon and toast). I was a wreck all day worrying about her - when she got home and got off the bus it was apparent that my worrying was for nothing. She had a great day and I enjoyed hearing all about it!
Are you a photo taker? I bet a lot of you are! And if you are like me I take photos but have a hard time scrapbooking them. I just don't find the time. Well Project Life by Stampin' Up! will help with that. Each kit comes with 100's of double sided 3x4, 4x4 and 4x6 cards that you just insert into your pages along with your photos.
This is a sampling of the Everyday Adventure kit. I LOVE the colors and true to Stampin' Up's nature each set coordinates with our cardstock and accessories. The colors are listed under each kit's description. I just wrote the colors on a 3x5 and stuck it in with my kit so whenever I go to grab this kit I know what cardstock colors I may need (if I even choose to do that!).
These pictures aren't the best because I don't want to give away all my secrets as we will be going over this at my Project Life 101 class this Friday or Sunday (you pick which day works for you). I'm going to show you just how easy it is to get started and get those photos off your camera/computer and into your books!
