Sr Center card 10/27/11

I saw this card on Stampin Connection. ( a site for SU Demos only) LOVE IT! The colors and simplicity of this card were perfect for the large group that day. Yikes...the sudden increase in attendance has caught me by surprise. At the last 2 classes, I had 15 in attendance!

May 2011 Sr Center cards...

We only had one class in May, because the AC went out and it was HOTTTT! Here are the cards I designed and the ladies made during that class. The fish were made from a strip of scallop diecuts made using the Tasteful Trim die from Stampin' Up!

I was "published"...

This experience should be added to my "live and learn" file. I've added lots to that recently! ;) I was contacted by our local newspaper. They wanted details about the class I volunteer to teach at the Sr Center. I gladly gave an 1.5 hr interview and the reporter requested pics of the cards I created for the class...along with photos of the ladies working on their cards. I narrowed down to 20, the photos I sent. This was the ONLY picture published and I was quoted with just 2 sentences and those were taken out of context. The reporter didn't know what a rubber stamp was....??? I was kind of annoyed and embarrassed.

Big Shot card...

I chose to keep the colors subdued for this sympathy card. i used Very Vanilla CS, Crumb Cake ink. Embossing folder is named Vintage Wallpaper and the flower is Fun Flowers. Oh and teh frame is from the upcoming 2011-2012 catalog and is called Four Frames. it works perfectly with the Decorative Label punch.

Case'd from Pennie

I case'd this card, originally made by Pennie. Her card had a Whisper White card base, where mine is Melon Mambo. I used a different greeting, too. Thanks for inspiration Pennie!

Framed Tulips

Lots of products from the Occasions mini used here. LOVE this new set, Clearly for You. The embossing folder is one I have used for many of cards recently. It's an exclusive to Stampin' Up...Framed Tulips. Colors are Very Vanilla, Basic Black and "Pear Pizzazz". I CASE'd this bookmark from Shelli. I added it to my card by simply cutting a slit in the front of the card and slipping it in. Thanks for stopping by!

Is it distracting?

Tried something new with the blog. Changed the header and title areas. Do you think they are distracting? I've tried to keep the blog simple, in the past, but loved these new designs.
Thanks for your input...
