We had a blast at Convention. We came back inspired, excited and jazzed up about all the new product. Tons of fun! Look at the fun stuff we saw and did!
We cropped, scrapped and Susan won a bunch of hand made cards that were made by the art department at Close to My Heart. How cool is that?  And I, Susan's sister Nancy, finally signed up to be a consultant and I am posting things to this blog. Come back soon as I post MORE of the beautiful and inspirational cards that Susan won!  Get excited and inspired with us! Share the love!

Love Who You Are

Fashionista was one of my favorite stamp sets from the last catalog.  I think this was the first time I combined so many of the silhouettes together on one card.  Varying the positioning of them, cutting off the bottom halves really gave them a different look.  (And since I lose inspiration in stamp sets fairly quickly, it's always good to find a new perspective on them!)  I also love using an unexpected bright color. . .these stamps look awesome in black - but I really dig the PINK too!!!! :)

I am getting itchy to see the new catalog coming out soon, and I'm looking forward to lots of NEW inspiration to share with you!
