Celebrate the 200th PPA!

Hello there!  Today is a very special day, the Pals Paper Arts are celebrating the 200th post.  As a special treat for you, both design teams are playing along.  That's right all 20 of us are providing you with some great cards to look at, and guess what?  One lucky participant will receive all 20 cards!  Wow!  Take a look at the sketch, and grab your provisions, create something fun and head on over to the PALS to link it up!Image04

We each were allowed to choose our color that we wanted to use for our monochromatic card.  I chose Bermuda bay because I thought it would be easy to work with, and it is one of my favorite new colors.  However, when I was crafting my card, I had not a single piece of DSP, so I made my own using a stamp in the March Paper Pumpkin kit.  It is a single line of chevrons that is a photopolymer stamp, so it is super easy to line up.  This background was my first and only try, it really is easy.

Dalmatian spots?  That is my favorite expression for these random dots.  The decorative dots embossing folder will be available in the new catalog.

I love the new starburst framelits and matching Starburst Sayings stamp set.  Matted offset on a circle that was embossed, and dressed up with ribbon and a vintage faceted button, it makes a pretty sentiment.

So, are you excited to be the lucky recipient of all of the design team's cards?  All you have to do is participate and you could be the lucky winner!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Stamps:  Starburst Sayings, March Paper Pumpkin stamps
Paper:  Whisper white, Bermuda bay
Ink:  Bermuda bay
Tools:  Big shot, decorative dots & beautifully baroque embossing folders, starburst and circle framelits, 1/8 taffeta ribbon, white bakers twine, vintage faceted designer buttons

Prom fun

Hello there!  I thought to catch y'all up on what we have been busy with.  Mackie went to prom on Saturday, and I know that my faithful readers would like to see pictures!

But first, the "moms" decided that it would be best if we had Max's bow tie and pocket square made from fabric of Mackie's dress.  Her dress was very long, so we used the extra fabric to do this.  When the bow tie was finished, Mackie made a card to go with it.  Here is the card:

It was a small 3x3 card made using basic black and rich razzleberry.  Mackie heat embossed the You and Me from the Perfect Pennants stamp set in silver embossing powder.  A small strip of DSP (I am not sure which she used) and a bit of rich razzleberry ribbon finished the card.  She wrote a sweet note inside and tucked it into a box tied with black ribbon.

Ok, now on to the cutest pictures ever, Amy, Max's mom is a wonderful photographer, so the day was well documented!


The very next day, Max and Mackie decided to put their prom attire back on and go sailing.  What?!?  That's what true sailor's do, they love to sail!  They really just did it for pictures, but could not resist having fun.

And of course, since the wind was good, they changed into their sailing gear and went back out for an hour of sailing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I have resolved my computer problems, so hopefully I will be back to posting on a regular basis.  Make sure you come back on Thursday, since the PPA will have a super post celebrating the 200th post!  One lucky participant will receive a wonderful surprise!  I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Birthday Wishes

Hello there!  It's been a long time since I have posted, so thank you so much for coming back to see me!  The fabulous design team at the Pals Paper Arts have a fun color challenge for you this week, so take a look at the colors, grab your provisions and create something fun!

I love this new Just Sayin' bundle, and who can pass up a discount?  The stamp set and matching framelits are super trendy and fun.  Of course, I had to use my favorite new arrows embossing folder!

This stamp set Four You, was on my last order, I just love the fonts and sentiments!  Do you spy some summer starfruit bakers twine?  I scavenged it from a paper pumpkin kit!

This is a great card that can be used for anyone, boy or girl, and it can be mailed very easily, which is always a plus!

We have been super busy here as usual, with traveling to Georgia last weekend for the district sailing regatta.  Mackie's high school team did great for their first trip to districts, we are so proud of them and all of the sailors from our Lake Norman area.  Now we are on to the final preparations for Prom coming up next weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
