Card Organizer Workshop

I am excited to try something new this summer.  Instead of having the regular stamping workshop that I host once a month, I am hosting a Project Workshop.  The first one is next week.  We are making a card organizer.  I chose this first project for selfish reasons- I can never keep up with birthdays.  This is the answer!  Please join me for this handy project.

Workshop cards

If you were unable to make it to the workshop this month, don't worry!  I will post the cards we made and the directions so you can make them at home.  Feel free to be inspired by these cards and change them up to fit your stamps- that's what I did!
This card was inspired by SU demonstrators, Robin Merriman and Tonya Bowers.  It is very simple and easy to adapt to any occasion.  Start with a Whisper White card base.  Layer Basic Black and Daffodil Delight cs.  On  another layer of Whisper White, stamp the flower from Awash with Flowers in Stazon black ink.  Then stamp the stems in black and the saying of your choice.  Color the flowers and stems with Garden Green and Daffodil Delight markers.  Layer the card together and you are done!  Simple and pretty.

Stampin'Up inspiration card

After all that whining I did about not getting anything on my blog- here is the card I made yesterday!  It is very similar to the one a fellow demonstrator had published in our SU newsletter.  It is very easy to say "I never have any ideas", so try starting with a card that you like and make it your own.  I didn't have the same materials as the original, so I just used what I had! 
Thanks for looking,

Getting back in the groove

I had high hopes for this blog- making cards, posting pictures, sharing funny things that happen at our house, but somehow it is too hard for me to do it consistently.  I really wanted to provide great information on our ski trip- mostly because I couldn't find any good info before we went.  How embarrassing that the last post was April 13th right in the middle of our fun week there? 
I stamped a great card yesterday but haven't taken a picture or posted any information about any stamping in weeks.
All this to say I am sorry for having such a pathetic blog!  And if anyone knows an easier way to keep current- pass it on. 
Now, I am going to try once again to get something going here...
