In the meantime...
I've been prepping for a class I am doing tomorrow. We will be making these ADORABLE 'family' frames (sorry the photo is so small!!).
My good friend Vicki inspired us all to CASE the frame she had designed for an upcoming class when we spent the weekend at her place in the spring (for "Victopia" LOL) - I think each and every one of us made one! Mine is hanging in my foyer, and it didn't take long for some of my customers to notice it when they came for classes. Next thing I knew they were asking me to offer a class so they could make one too! The project uses the All in the Family stamp set (and Family Accessories), as well as the Neighbourhood wheel (the houses in the background) and the Define Your Life stamp set; the paper is Summer Picnic Designer Paper. The frames are 5" x 12".
And after all that cutting and prepping, I figured I deserved some stamping myself, so I combined Beate's weekend sketch challenge and the SCS Inspiration Challenge, and came up with this card:
We had to find inspiration from one of the rooms on an interior design website; I chose this one. I loved how the pale blue contrasted with the deep red couch. I also drew inspiration from the black accents (the bookshelf, the photo frame). I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set, as well as the Happy Birthday greeting from Amazing to Zany (retired). The blue is Bashful Blue and the red is the new Riding Hood Red.
OK, time to get back to work... now I need to set up my tables and supplies for tomorrow's class...
