I’m having the best time looking at the new catalog!! I can’t share yet (but I will be working on projects for the next few days, so you’ll be able to see a few things), but you’re going to LOVE what’s in there. And the new In Colors – Yippee!!
The only bad thing is I’m supposed to be working, so I have to look like I’m doing something really constructive every time Mike walks past. Wonder if I held the phone between my shoulder and neck and talked to myself if he would think I was making calls?? (But really, I’ve been a demo for 8 1/2 years. I think he understands “New Catalog Day.”
Here are some cute little coasters I made the other day with Mom. The idea was in our Stampin’ Success magazine. This is one of the perks we get as demonstrators! Anyway – when I explained to Mom what I was doing, she looked a tad skeptical. You just layer our cork sheets, designer series paper, and window sheets with adhesive sheets. (I added a layer of the cardboard that comes with designer paper between the cork and paper.) Then run it through the big shot. There you go – a cute little coaster!!
Stamp set: Love and Care; Ink: Old Olive, Poppy Parade classic; Paper: Paisley Petals designer series paper; Other: Cork sheets, window sheets, Big Shot, Scallop Circle #2 die, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Big Shot adhesive sheets
On some of them, I embossed the paper with an embossing folder, but you can’t see it, so it was kind of an unnecessary step. Others I stamped or added little butterflies. You could add a monogram, or a stamped image, or an inspiration saying…the possibilities are endless.
Here’s the high praise from my mother: “Well, those are really cute. I was thinking they were going to be tacky, but they’re not.” Oh, Mom, stop. My head will swell.
Off to work!! Have a great day.
