July Card Class

So trying to take pictures of the cards and post them as I got them completed didn't exactly work for me. I don't really understand why it is so hard for me to be organized. I'm thinking of hiring someone to come in and just pitch stuff (none of my card making and scrapbooking stuff mind you). I haven't completely lost my mind. Not yet any way.

I really had fun creating this month's cards even though they were relatively simple. I have rediscovered embossing so I'm trying not to go overboard.

Question for everyone out there. Do you fall in love with stamp sets, order them, and then never use them? Am I the only one who does this? Maybe it comes down to organization. I don't know which sets I have so I rely on the stamp set that I'm using for that month's class.

Well, here's to hoping I can improve with my organizational skills soon before my mess drives me crazy as well as my parents.

Here are the cards from July. They were made with the Paper lantern set, Fanfare paper, and the Fanfare workshop on the go stamp set. Once again the are oriented funny on the blog.

Enjoy! and Happy Scrappin'

Remaining cards from June

Hopefully these cards will post. I apoligize for the way these cards are posting. The program is turning them for some reason.

June Card Class

One of these days I'm sure I'll get the hang of blogging, but it hasn't happened yet. I've had the pictures of my last card class since the class but keep forgetting to get them on the computer. Granted the computer is in the basement and I'm hair color challenged. That leaves a lot of walking space for me to forget what I was needing to do. With that being said here are last months cards. They really turned out much better than I thought they would. This paper line is way different than what I would normally choose to use. I used Lucky and Bliss for the June cards and the inks were Outdoor Denim, Olive, Sunset, and Desert Sand. We did do some embossing on two of the cards which really turned out nice. The colors used for the embossing were outdoor denim and olive. I really love the embossing and everyone else seemed to enjoy it as well. Maybe I'll try to add my cards as I create them for July, hopefully that will turn out better.

I will have to put the remaining 3 cards in another post. For some reason it will not upload them to this post.

Happy scrappin'
