Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week so far. In all my excitement to tell you about Craft Project Central yesterday, I forgot to tell you that I am on leave for the whole month. Oh, don’t worry, I’ll get enough flying during the summer for two people!! The company was looking for some volunteers for unpaid leave and I figured it would give me time to catch up from the whirlwind I’ve been in since going back to flying. Hopefully that will mean more stamping (and posts) too!
Jen Mitchell from I Create is the sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week. As usual, she came up with a great sketch! Last week blew me away and I know this one will bring some more oohs and aahs!
I am trying to use up some of my retiring DSP to clear the way for Stampin’ Up’s new catalog launch on June 1st. Actually demonstrators get to see it in May 7th so I have even more reason to clear out some things!! I started the card with this wonderful print from Paisley Petals DSP. I thought it would be really pretty on the sketch panels! As I was sifting through my stamp drawer I came upon Day of Gratitude. I seem to get lots of use out of this in the fall but then it gets neglected. Not really sure why since it works in all seasons. The medallion was just what I needed so I inked it up with Always Artichoke and Early Espresso using my Stampin’ Write Markers (*note: Always Artichoke is “retiring” as an individual marker and will only be available as part of a Regals set in the future. I already ordered a spare!). I need a graduation card for a niece so I chose a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes for that. Not sure it has the right feel for graduation but I’m hoping she will like it.
The design team and our guest designers have made some fabulous cards this week. After admiring their work (and letting them know), roll on down to read about a design team call for Freshly Made Sketches. Lots of great info and you can’t be chosen if you don’t enter!!
Thanks for stopping in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with another Craft Project Central feature. Hope you have a great day!
