Art Journal Page Pan Pastels

I saw this page idea on a Blitsy Blog page using Pan pastels.  They are easy to use and I do like how the flowers turned out,  Not so happy with my handwriting :(

Great Christmas Card

Life has been so busy that I have not been able to post in a couple of weeks.  I received this great Christmas card from a sideline Stampin Up demo Cathy Williams.  Love the design.  I am going to get this stamp set which is going to be carrying over from the Holiday catalog.

12 Days of Christmas -part 1

I am participating in a 12 Days of Christmas gift swap with some other Stampin Up demonstrators.  We were to make 12 small gifts using Stampin Up product and then wrap them up so that the recipient would have a small gift surprise to open each day.  I did 2 gift exchanges so I would have 24 gifts to open.  Here are the items I have opened so far.

Shop Hop Quilt

I went on a quilt shop hop about 3-4 years ago and  got these quilt squares for going around to various quilt stores.  I loved the quilt that the store in Lake Mary made and bought the finishing set to make their quilt.  I finally got around to making it over the past 3-4 weeks and here it is :)

Unity Stamp Rebuild Herself

Happy Day after Thanksgiving.  I am staying home but that doesn't mean I won't be shopping :)
I have already found some great Black Friday deals on my favorite stamp sites.  I made this card today - actually have had this stamp for quite some time and never used it.  I saw this idea on Pinterest.  Love this stamp.

It has been a busy few weeks with card classes and work.  I made these 2 cards today from the October Paper Pumpkin and have 6 more to make.  Simple and cute shaker cards.  Hopefully I will get back to posting once  a week soon.

Mixed Media Cards

So after playing some more with my Gelli Plate and printing a bunch of background papers I decided to make several cards. If you have never used a Gelli Plate it is addicting.  I have so many background papers, tags etc made that are all so unique and beautiful in their own way.  I need to make more cards using them but here are my 1st three.

Art Journal page

Played a little today on an art journal page idea I saw on Pinterest.  Not sure how I feel yet about this page.  I was brave and decided to work right on the page in the journal and not on a separate sheet of paper that I could throw.  And I cannot tear out the page and throw it away as there is a page I do like on the backside.  Oh well, I could always cover the entire page with gesso and star over :)

My new toy

I decided to go ahead and get a brand new 10 needle Brother embroidery machine.  I did some of the towels I make in half the time AND no thread changes and staying close to the machine.  I also noticed much less threads to clip at the end and the embroidery is excellent quality.  So much to learn on the new toy.

Autumn Table runner

I have been working on a project for my table using fall quilt blocks from Anita Goodesign.  Here is the table runner I made using remnant fabric.  I sure do love my Brother Dreamweaver embroidery machine.

Simon Says Stamps cards

I played today with the September Simon Says Stamp card kit.  There are scratch off circles to use on a card - stamp the sentiment and cover with the scratch off circle.  Cute idea.  I got a bit carried away with the liquid nuvo drops they included in the kit in Silver and Caribbean Ocean.  I may re-create a couple of these cards with different paper.  The 2 shaker cards were simple with a frame from My Favorite Things.  Sorry about the reflection on the one shaker card - the inside of the shaker is a black with small polka dots and the Happy Birthday embossed in white.  One of these days I will get better at photographing my cards :)
