Happy 18th Anniversary

Standard

Today is my 18th anniversary. This is the card that I snuck into my husband’s office last night after he went to bed.

It’s similar to a card I did a few days ago. I loved the look and style so much, I decided to make another one for him.

I totally CASEd Kelly Marie’s card from the introductory video.

SOS #157 – Color My World

Standard

The challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is #157 – Color My World – use your favorite color.

My favorite color is black which pairs really well with my favorite color combo which is rainbow.

Along with the Lawn Fawn sets that I bought this weekend, I also bought some Tim Holtz stencils.  I realized I had everything I needed to to try the technique that Tim used on his 12 Months of Tags – June. Well, everything but a water spritzer, but then I remembered the “sea salt texturizing spray” that I received in one of those “get a box of random stuff every month” things that I won a subscription to. I ran upstairs, dumped the spray, rinsed it out, got the spritzer clean et voila, a lovely no cost to me water spritzer.

Here’s the result. You can’t tell from the picture but the tag is popped with dimensional adhesive.

Lawn Fawn Science of Love

Standard

I’ve been a fan of Lawn Fawn for awhile but never got around to actually buying any because I’d go to the site and want to buy them all. I just couldn’t make up my mind.

I spent this past weekend working as a booth assistant at a Scrapbook Show. I actually chose to work at this specific booth because they carry Lawn Fawn. It was a very long, very busy 3 days but I came out of it with a new appreciation for people who do this for a living – imagine completely stocking and then tearing down a scrapbook shop every weekend and moving on to a new city to do it all again. I also learned some new things and I came home with 4 sets of LawnFawn stamps with their matching dies for a ridiculously discounted price – hard work does indeed pay off…

I used Good Fortune yesterday for the Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge card. Today’s uses the Science of Love set.

I’ll be honest – I totally CASEd Kelly Marie’s card from the introductory video.
