For you local Seattle peeps...are any of you going to Amuse's anniversary sale next weekend? It starts at 9am on Saturday. I've been thinking about taking a class from Julie Ebersole. She's such a doll if you've never met her before. Last time she came into town, Rachel and I took both of her classes. Anyhoo- if anyone is going, I would love to meet up and shop! :)
I made this card last week in hopes that Kelly would put this Pixie in the shop. I still haven't seen her...but KL Stampin n Scrappin does have all of the new Basic Grey paper. Isn't Pippi just so cute all dressed up as a pumpkin?!?
Paper: Basic Grey Eerie
Stamps: CC Designs, sentiment is TGF
Copics, CTMH Bigger Brads, American Craft Ribbon, and Crystal Stickles
Many people always ask how I find the time to do everything. First, I'm a process person...I like things to be in order, steps, and sequential. Almost everything I do, I break into parts...I even eat this way, lol. But seriously...when I stamp, I stamp a ton of images at one time. That way I only have to clean my stamps, ink, and block once and be done.
Then I rummage through my scraps and paper stacks and pick which papers I want to use with which images. After I have a good stack of images and paper, I color each image to match the paper I picked. I do this while I'm watching TV, though I can't while I'm watching SYTYCD. Their dance routines are so short, if you miss a sec, you could miss the whole thing. And be careful when you watch your favorites...because I have messed up when something exciting happens, lol. :)
I look at all of the sketch challenges for the week and see what will work with what. Then by the time Saturday comes...all I have to do is actually assemble my cards together. This is actually the quickest part for me. Coloring with my Copics is the longest. I make all of my cards for the week and then photograph them all. After I edit them, I autopost everything for the week and then I start all over for next week. The only downfall to what I do is that every challenge I use is a week or two late.
Anyhoo- I hope you all have a great Monday! It's back to work for me...and it's gonna be a long day, as I'm finishing up a project. :)
