Graduation Announcement

This is the graduation announcement that I made for my son.  I used the shaving cream techniques for the background.  The letters and numbers are embossed.  I thought they looked to plain and flat without the embossing.  The center image, from a retired set, is also embossed.  I love using the shaving cream technique because it makes the paper soft and it smells so good.

Snow makes people stay home

I wasn't very happy about the record snow on Saturday.  I was participating in a craft fair and we all know that people don't come if the weather is bad.  I never would have thought that it would snow in October when I signed up to set-up at this craft fair.  I hope the weather is better this Saturday since I will be doing another craft fair.  Keeping my fingers crossed that it goes better this time.

New baby cards

I made these cute welcome baby cards with our new stocking builder punch.  I did CASE this idea, but don't know the original designer's name.  I will be selling these and many other cards at several craft fairs that I will be attending in the coming weeks.

Playing with new shaker frames

I am having a great time using Stampin' Up!s new shaker frames!  They are lots of fun and everyone loves to shake them.

Finally back to posting

I have not posted to my blog in almost a year!  It was the wrong time for me to start a blog, but now is the right time.  I will be posting once a week.  I hope everyone enjoys reading my posts and seeing all of my new projects.  I am having a Christmas card buffet in a few weeks and will be doing several craft fairs in the coming months.
