I'm Back in Action!


Sorry I haven't posted in soo long! But I'm back in action!! I decided to play along with the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge today. It's kind of set up to be a "Color Block" style layout, but I decided to keep it simple and go with a Monochromatic look!


And here's the Sketch from Stamping 411.



So I used different sides to the Patterns Designer Paper Stack out of Blush Blossom for the "Color Blocking." And the Super Cool Scallop Circle in white is from the new Perfect Pennants Big Shot Die, available July 1st (and it has 4 other awesome pieces on the same die!).

And for the center focal part I used the single stamp, Tiny Teacup. And, yep, it will still be available in the new catalog. And I used the White Bakers Twine for a little somethin' extra for between the layers!




So here's where I was the last few days - it was kind of a trip that all came together just a few days before I left. And I'm so super glad I got to get away for a few days! This was the view from the room - not too bad, huh? I actually brought part of a stamping project I'm working on for Convention to work on (mostly I did it on the plane). But for the most part, it was nice to get away and enjoy some nice pool and beach weather, a few nice dinners out and some time with my hubby!


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie

It's been raining here for several days now, so as you can imagine, I wish I was laying out on that beach! Awesome take on this week's sketch. The teacup is one of my favorites for sure. :D

Here I was trying to figure out how you got that shape....duh!! Flip it over. Now why didn't I think of that.
