Phew!


I have just finished (well almost,) a consignment order for 12 origami cards. The business cards are printed and have my business stamp on the back. The envelopes are made (thanks Mom). All that is left to do is:
stamp the back of the cards
put the cards, envelopes etc in a cellobag with a little sticker on the back
and I need to create a list of items for the gallery they are going to and for me.

Now, I think I have earned some time to just sit down with a diet coke and watch some tv for the rest of the night.

Tomorrow, I want to get this all ready for shipping and make sure the box I get will be large enough. I will be taking photographs of these cards before they get all posted.

I've blogged about the Samoa thing

Ice Blue Christmas

Handmade Embossed Christmas Cards

I love the look of these cards. I might be making some more for me to use this Christmas. And I was even able to make some matching tags in the same shades.
And matching tags.

Scrapbook Pages

The best scrapbook pages from the last couple weeks.

These flowers were made from bigger flowers. I love the bright summery colors. These photographs are from today. It was hot and sunny most of the day so I decided to paint my toenails a nice bright color to cheer me up.
Two before shoots which I tried to make a little aged and grey and then the nails painted this bright red with a perfect blue sky behind!
I actually used my corner rounder on this page. Usually I leave the card square. I used quite a lot of stash that I've been keeping for a while that had uses when I bought them but I never did use them.
A newer layout with pictures of Charlie. All the letters for the title were handcut.
And I covered the two clocks from the patterned paper (bottom left) in diamond glaze to give them an epoxy sticker look to match the epoxy sticker from the dot in the "i".
My one true love. Smirnoff Vodka. Above just shows the clear heart that I attached to the cardstock with a silver eyelet.
The title for the page is "{My Secret Lover}" The letters are glitter ones by Doodlebug Designs. They are covered with so much glitter, it goes everywhere!


This picture is just from a few weeks ago. Again, I used lots of papers and chipboard pieces that I've had for about a year, and I'm trying to use some of them.

KaiserCraft



For the last nine days I've been taking part in the Kaiser Craft 30 Days of Creative Contests.

So far, I haven't won anything but there are still lots of days left to enter. And I love the Sneak Peaks that they've shown on their Facebook page. I can't wait to buy some and start working on Christmas presents.

I am hoping/planning on completing all 30 days.
