Open house!

Hey everyone! Thank you for all of the comments and nice things said! Unfortunately I am not sure how to comment back to anyone, I am still trying to figure that one out! I haven't done much stamping, due to my lack of sleep. The girls have decided that napping during the daytime is unnecessary and that they should wake up every two hours during the night! So any spare time me or my mother get, consists of a lot of sleep!

I did manage to make one card! I was just messing around with paperclips and a cool stamp set called 'seaside'. I was just seeing what I could make with it, and I think it turned out pretty cool!


Stamp Sets: Seaside, Warm Words
Cardstock: Bashful blue, Very vanilla, Close to cocoa.
Stamp Pads: Close to cocoa, Versamark.
Swirls: Paperclips remolded
SU! Markers and Aquapen
Glitter: Dazzling Diamonds

Punches: Word window, Large oval.
Pearlex powder (Retired SU!)

That was the only card I made myself this week. I am planning to make more, and make creative business cards! My mother did happen to have an open house and I helped her with some of the samples. It went very well for her. I would like to do some classes once I have a better client base and I am not so shy! I have so much to learn still, I feel like an amateur!

Here are some samples from the open house. We did base some of our ideas off of samples we saw on other blogs! We can't take all the credit! :]

This one in particular was to show off SU! die cuts and the new corduroy buttons!
