I've been trying to post something since yesterday, but there's been a problem with uploading pictures on Blogger. Thankfully, I tried a different way to get the pictures in the post, and it worked. Since it took so long, I have two things to show you.
The first picture is a card that I've made. This will be one of the cards made at my upcoming stamp camp this coming Thursday. To find out more about this camp, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
I've used this month's Creating Pretty Cards sketch #19 over at Craft Project Central. I really like this sketch a lot. If you would like to play along, just CLICK HERE. You could win a free January subscription!
I thought this sketch would go perfect with my new stamp set, Oh, Hello (p. 4 in Spring Catalog). The flag on the left looks like designer paper, but it isn't. It's one of the stamps in the stamp set! The chevron design behind the flower was made with a stamp, too. I stamped it onto scrap paper, and then stamped it onto the Very Vanilla card stock to get a lighter image. Then, I stamped the flower on top. The polka dot piece is designer paper, and it's from the new pack called Tea for Two DSP (p. 3 in Spring Catalog). The Lucky Limeade card stock was embossed with the Lacy Brocade Impressions folder. It was in the past Holiday Catalog, but it's still available. It's on p. 36 of the Spring Catalog, along with other products being carried over from the Holiday Catalog.

The next picture is of the newest project over at Craft Project Central. The designer of this scrapbook tin and matching card is Amanda Corbet.
This special scrapbook tin and card are the perfect way to keep photos of those you love and cherish. The tin takes up only a small amount of space, but can hold a lot of special memories. There are eight double sides pages inside as well as eight note cards in the pocket of each page. Add a photo and a note about the photo and keep it all in this special little tin. It can even double as a gift card holder for eight gift cards! The matching card makes this a perfect gift to give for any occasion!
