  14. I like the idea of making your own embellishments. Sometimes I don't have anything that matches and this makes the whole card pull together nicely.

  38. Went to crop tonight and did do something new. Put paper across two sheets of paper and then cut between the sheets so I had some on the inner edge of each sheet of my layout. Does that make any sense. Hope it does.

  47. You are just to cute Robin (the bloppers)....I would have never thought of using a flower the way you did, I can't wait to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thanks so much for sharing all your talent. I am hopefully going to start taking advantage of your challenges to get me to make more cards again. Here is a link to my blog http://www.pampereddiamond.blogspot.com/. I made a card yesterday using a photo. I have never done that before and I love the look. I used a cuttlebug edge folder to emboss the edge and then alcohol inked the charm. Thanks again.

  101. LOVE the video and thanks so much for sharing with us - including the out takes - made me laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I finally got around to participating in the challenge. I combined two into one. I tried something new and I did something school related. Hope you like it. I was inspired by Regina Easter (and who isn't?) and I used buttons. I never use buttons much less actually sew thread on them. That was new for me. I still haven't tried sewing on paper but I did try the faux stitches with white ink.
