Here are a couple of the card fronts I made to swap today during the Stamp Camp by Joanne Tofte and associates. We will be making 7 projects that we can teach at home! hooray! Ideas, I love more ideas, I never have enough ideas!
The stamp set is the Ronald McDonald house set "Just like you". I am loving this set, it's so versatile, fun and easy to use! And they coordinate so well! Yippee! The inks are pretty in pink, regal rose and wild wasabi. Cardstocks, whisper white, regal rose and wild wasabi. I used our new scallop punch, the 1 1/2" in round punch and the white gel pen. Some pretty in pink ribbon and a dimensional finish out this project!
Here is my personal tip: I take about 10 packs of whisper white cardstock to kinkos and I have them cut them into 4x5 1/4" sizes all at once. That way I have a mass amount already prepared when I need them for classes, swaps etc... I also do this with very vanilla, shimmer white, glossy white and the naturals. Any cardstock that I use for card fronts. I have several packs cut at one time to "save ME time". It is so worth the cost and the cost is minimal and depending on your rate of use, they last quite a while! 160 card fronts from 1 pk of paper is awesome and I only have to drop them off and come back later to pick them up!
Tonight is the pajama make and take party- when I get back home I will post photos of Jen and I in our matching jammies! I can't believe I am going out in public in my pajamas and slippers- my worst nightmare as a kid was getting caught at school in my nightie and slippers- OH MY PLease DON'T tell my daughter I am doing this! She will harass me forever! I always make fun of people in public in their jamas or slippers, I think it looks tacky ( I am now going to have to eat my own words- anyone have any chocolate and diet pepsi to wash then down with?
However: I am not walking from the hotel to the convention center this way tho, I will take my new SU bag with my change of clothes!) Stay tuned for written reports of the happenings at convention!!
