Theses are the scrapbook pages we did, and I have to give credit where it is due -- I expanded these from an 8 1/2 X 11 page my upline Jessica Wilsted made 3 or 4 years ago as a swap for Stampin' Up Convention. She had an extra, and I loved it, so expanded it to what you see now. I "dirtied" up the vanilla cardstock with a sponge and Creamy Caramel classic ink. We stamped the "USA" in craft Night of Navy so it would look like paint. Turned out great!
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Real Red, Very Vanilla & Real Red Textured (for "God bless the")
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Night of Navy craft
Accessories: Small star punch, silver brads, "Billboard" Sizzlet strip die, Big Shot, 1/16" punch
~~Note: The vanilla CS is cut @ 2" and layered over the real red. Measurements for the "USA" tag are vanilla 4" X 3 1/2" and night of navy 4 1/2" X 4". We "dirtied" the stars before punching.
These are up close pics of the choices my club members got to pick from. I love the new In Colors -- they are so summer-y. This card is cased from TreasureOiler on Splitcoast and you can see her original post here. This such a classy card, and so nice for summer -- of course Megan (our recent HS graduate) loved it and wants a bunch to send out for thank you cards! I think I'll let her help me make them! The card above is in Burmuda Bay, and below is in Melon Mambo -- gotta LOVE the coordinating ribbon!!!
This is the new Crushed Curry In Color:
And this was the most popular at club, Rich Razzleberry.
Aren't they pretty all together? Now I know why I have such a hard time giving them away! You can order these new In Colors NOW (see the catalog link if you don't have a hard copy!). This will be my last post for a while probably, as we are on our way to Utah for 5 weeks day-after-tomorrow. I'm looking SO FORWARD to convention, and hanging out with my cool downline gals. We learn so much, and have fun together. I can't wait!
