I'm still around!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I am still around! A recent move and the upcoming deployment of my husband has made it necessary for me to take a break for stamping for a while. I am no longer a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and will be taking an indefinite leave of posting new stamping projects but rest assured that I am still available for questions on any of my past projects and my tutorials are still available for purchase and will be emailed to you within 24 hours of Paypal payment.

Take care all and please pray for our troops!


PS...I also found out I was an Artisan Award Runner-up!

Almost Artisan 3D Share: Day 10

My last project I entered for Artisan Award to share with you all, a name frame for my neice Ruby.
The chipboard letters are covered in patterned DSP. I scrunched the ribbon. The beads were hand threaded to line the interior of the frame.

Almost Artisan Card Share: Day 9

Another card for Artisan Award, I really liked this one too! This was my final entry I completed. The dragonfly's wings are double layered and loose to be flapped up. The cloud inthe background is popped up with dimensionals.

Inside I made a little hill of grass using the 3D Pop Up Cake Die.

Almost Artisan Card Share: Day 8

Here is another of my Artisan Award cards:
My monkey was popped up with dimensionals and the head was another layer also popped up for lots of depth.

Almost Artsian Card Share: Day 7

This was a more Clean and Simple card design for Artisan Award, but I still added a lot of detailing.

The watercolored image is layered for depth. The edges of the paper is distressed.

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the sentiment from Herb expressions, the same sentiment peeks out from the under-layer of Old Olive.
The center of the flowers, top and bottom rim of the pot, and ladybug are all layered for depth.

Almost Artisan Card Share: Day 6

This was the first project I made for Artisan Award and I loved it, I really thought it was unlike anything I had seen before and I was very proud of it. It took me about 4 hours to make this card. i cut up cardstock into many tiny pieces and hand glued them, placing them with tweezers, to create a mosaic look of a cherry blossom tree. After all the pieces were in place I covered the entire image with Crystal Effects so it was glossy like glass.

Almost Artisan Scrapbook Share: Day 5

Here is my third scrapbook page Artisan Award entry I made with pictures of a funny-faced little llama from a petting zoo.

Almost Artisan 3D Share: Day 4

I truly loved this project I made for Artisan Award, its a baby mini scrapbook. The pages have headings with room for pictures and journalling. Luckily for me I made two so I could keep one! The chipboard 'b' is covered in silver microbeads. The banner off to the side says "is for baby"

I photographed all the pages but here are just a few, first bath and 3 months:

"Look Who's Crawling" and "First Words"
"First Steps" and a bitty envelope to hold the "First Curl"
Baby's First Birthday:

Almost Artisan Card Share: Day 3

Here is one of the cards I made for Artsan Award, going for a vintage look:

Almost Artisan Scrapbook Share: Day 2

So here is my second Scrapbook page entry for Artisan Award. I have two sons but wanted to do a girl page so I used a close up of one of my son's feet just after he was born and made a page for my imaginary daughter! Hey, a girl needs some pink sometimes!

A close-up of the paper punch flowers and the layering of the page:

Paper Piercing around the layer of Bermuda Bay:
Hope you like it!

Almost Artisan Share:Day 1

Well, I can't way I'm not bummed because I didn't win Artisan Award (a contest for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) but it is nice to finally be able to share the projects I worked so hard on. I made 3 scrapbook pages, 5 cards, and 2 3D projects for the contest and I will be featuring one each day for the next 10 days so please check back daily to see them. (And a comment to stroke my bruised ego would be much appreciated too!!)

Here is my first share, an 8.5 by 11 scrapbook page of my son.

Its hard to see but the background is stamped in Versamark with the dotted swirl Treetop from Trendy Trees.

Some of the other "Almost Artisans" will be posting their projects on their blogs too-go check them out and leave a comment!

Also, I've extended indefinitely my BIG Tutorial Sale!
