Vintage Red


This past week I wanted to force myself to use some of the new papers and embellishments I had recently ordered. I have a tendency to buy the new styles and then set them aside, and I didn't want to do the "same ole, same ole" with these. Most of the papers are from the Camden collection by Collage Press, and the labels are from a sheet I bought from Artchix Studio.

Alphabet Discovery Workshop:


Today I'm alternating between being outside in the beautiful weather and spending some snippets of time in my studio. I finally finished another page for my "letter journal"; here's my letter P for Pink.

RST List "Restaurant" Challenge card


On the RST Yahoo list we're talking about using gleaned restaurant items in our art. Things like coasters, placemats, doilies and such. My son and I just got back from the local pizza parlor where we bought a couple of slices "to go". The pizza box had some crude but cute graphics on the lid...including this red window. I couldn't resist! The stamped images are from Stampsmith and the red dotted background paper is from Papertrey Ink. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the other decorative papers (if anyone recognizes them, let me know and I'll post the name). Last, but not least, the RIBBONS are a few of the awesome new styles over at my old "stomping grounds" Really Reasonable Ribbon (hi Bonnie!!).
