The hurrier I go...

The behinder I get. All of my best intentions fly out the door and I struggle to keep ahead of everything on my to-do list! Unfortunately, the blog suffers...

Here are two of the projects from last weekends classes (Simple Cards & Scrapbook). I'm really happy with the way all of my class samples turned out this week, and I have more to share (as well as samples for this weekend's classes), so hopefully I'll make it back here soon. My new favourite website is Pinterest ( and several of my class projects were inspired by things I found there. Let me know if you want an invite (but be warned that it is addictive), or find me so I can follow you if you're already there.

I am so in love with the First Edition DSP right now... 24 sheets (4 each of 6 designs) and they are a great 'neutral' background for other papers and elements with enough visual interest to hold their own. This layout was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest:

It had many layered flags something like this one. I love the Everyday Enchantment papers (FREE during Sale-a-Bration!) and love the way this turned out.

This card was inspired by this one I found on Pinterest... I just changed the colours and sentiment (mine didn't show up very well over top of the script background, so I stamped it again and punched it out with the Modern Label punch and added a pearl.

Liz! I'm loving that page. First Edition DSP is my main "go to"; so much so that I have to restrain myself from using it too much. This page is GREAT. And that card is beautiful!
