How Sweet It Is...
I spent the weekend with 21 awesome ladies at a scrapbooking retreat. I had a great time making new friends and seeing some that I got to know last October at the Northern California retreat. It felt so good to get away and have some down time.
I knew my family was supportive of my get-away time and it was confirmed when I came home to a perfectly clean house. They had the candles lit and the house was smelling great! They wanted to know all about my weekend and kept leaning in for hugs as I told them what all went on.
Well, here's some of what I worked on. I didn't actually scrapbook because I didn't want to stress over organizing my photos and packing, etc. I just worked on some altering and I also made a bunch of cards. I helped out some of the ladies that were also altering for the first time.
Well, here we go!
I made (finished) a banner for my nephew.
Paper-DCWV Animal Crackers, Cricut-All Mixed Up, Mod Podge, Ribbon
I made a bunch of all occasion cards.
I just love the Cupcake set by Inkadinkado!
Supplies: Cupcake stamp set-Inkadinkado, Paper-Bazzil,
Ink-Stampin' Up, Stickles, Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk, buttons,
I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Swirl
embossing folder on the next two. The white core of the paper shows
through since I sanded it a bit.
I heat embossed the large cupcakes. I also used the blending pen with
the stamp pads and colored everything in like water color.
I got some foam flowers and buttons in my goody bag and thought I'd try them out.
Well, that's all for now. Come back later when I post some more.
These will probably go in my Etsy shop soon. Let me know if you have any
Oh! Have a sweet day!!
