Things I've been working on

I thought I would post a few pictures of the projects I've been making. The first picture is a card I made for a swap with some online friends. So girls, if you want to be surprised, scroll past the first one ;)
I used the new Ronald McDonald set called Say It With Scallops. A portion of the proceeds from purchasing this stamp set is donated to the Ronald McDonald House charities. It's a great set! And it coordinates with our new square scallop punch. I also used the new Maine Blueberry Designer series paper, along with a small piece of printed paper from the level 1 hostess prints pack. I used the canvas background stamp stamped in Versamark on the card base. I LOVE that stamp! It adds so much texture and interest to the background. Ink and cardstock colors I used are: Not Quite Navy and Old Olive. I used some Dazzling Diamonds on the focal image to add a little bling. And the white gel pen on the scallop square. Finished it off with a little bit of the now retired Old Olive 1/4" poly twill ribbon.
This is a 5"x8" notepad folio. I used another new set called Eastern Blooms for the flowers and one of the sentiment stamps from Inspired By Nature. Cardstock colors are Bravo Burgundy, Sahara Sand and Whisper White. I used Parisian Summer Designer Series Paper. Ink colors are: Bravo Burgundy and Pink Pirouette. Of course there are Dazzling Diamonds in the center of the flowers. Ribbon is Light Pink Gingham Ribbon.
Inside the folio is a pocket to hold notecards or anything you need.


I made a bookmark calendar to tuck inside the pocket to look up dates when I'm jotting down notes.


This is an altered note pad. I purchased the notepad from Target. It already had the pen attached at the bottom. I covered it in Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I used the new scallop border punch to punch a strip of paper across the front. I used the Big Flowers stamp to stamp the focal image in Riding Hood Red. Added some white gel pen dots on the scallop circle, and some faux stitching on the Riding Hood Red panel. I added some Light Pink Gingham Ribbon and Old Olive Twill Ribbon to the top spiral.



That's all for now. I need to clean up my stamp room so I can get to the rest of my new sets!
