Finally Back On My Blog!!!

OK, so I'm a slacker in the blog department, BUT not in all departments! For the record, since I posted last, we've taken a daughter to college, are living through getting another one back to college in the next couple of months, and I'm running back and forth between high school volleyball games and Stampin' Up events, ALL of which I LOVE, but all of which have kept me going so fast that I literally barely have time to read my e-mails it seems like! But I know that fall is busy for all of you, so I hope this explanation hasn't fallen on totally deaf ears. I apologize, and more will come more often now, I promise.
The "Got Ink?" Girlz Stampin' Up group just held our first stamp camp, and it was a blast! We learned much, and hope that all attendees had a great time (surveys should be coming soon -- please those of you who came, will you fill them out promptly?). These pictures and instructions are for those who could not attend last Saturday, but who bought the projects pre-stamped and need to put them together. The instructions may include stamping instructions as well, but you know that yours are already stamped for you!! Yay! Here are most of the projects and how to put them together:
This card was done by Debbie Carlson, and she took it from a Convention swap:
1. Adhere thin Chocolate Chip strip to bottom of Sahara Sand cardstock.
2. (Optional) Paper pierce right hand top corner of Sahara Sand.
3. Apply Snail adhesive to metal brad. Stick Old Olive circle onto brad. Take clear done top and apply directly to brad. Use tip of scissors or 1/16" punch to make a small hole in the center of the medallion stamped image. Put brad through and fasten.
4. Use adhesive to apply Sahara Sand piece to Old Olive base. Match up the medallion on Old Olive to medallion on Sahara Sand.

This is my home decor project, and here are the instructions:
Give Thanks Home Decoration
1. Adhere (1) 3 ½” X 11 and (1) 3 ½” X 10 ½” piece of Always Artichoke cardstock together with sticky strip.
2. (Optional) Punch 2 sides of beginning & end pieces of Designer Series Paper with ticket punch.
3. Wrap ribbon around last letter.
4. Adhere DSP to Artichoke cardstock panels, then letters on to the DSP.
5. Ink up “Give” and leaves only on “Give thanks” stamp with Elegant Eggplant & More Mustard Markers respectively. Breathe on stamp to remoisten, and stamp on vanilla cardstock. Punch out with large oval punch.
6. Sponge Soft Suede ink around edge of punched oval. Punch Scallop Oval out of More Mustard cardstock. Adhere two pieces together. Attach to front top panel of project with dimensionals.

Here are the panels so that you can see where I put my DSP. Obviously you can do whatever you want with it! I hope you love it like I do!

I also did one that says FAMILY. I love it too! Some of you chose this one instead of the THANKS, so here are pictures. The same directions above apply.
