First Blog Post of the Year!
Where does the time go? Seems like yesterday when I was digging out the Christmas decorations and now it is already the 6th of January and here I am, basking in the sunshine of Phoenix!
I was having a bit of a creative slump yesterday. I was missing my stuff. When I fly down, I must be selective on what I take with me. No clothes…….all scrapbook stuff…………was a given……..but I still had to make some tough choices! My cousin referred to my decision dilemma as the real tough decisions of a first world person. Ouch that hurt………….and while he is right, I still defend my right to whine about it. Scrapbookers everywhere understand my stash separation anxiety!
Anyway a trip to Scraps of Love and Joann’s and Hobby Lobby relieved the symptoms somewhat and today I was recovered enough to make a couple of cards. In actual fact, they were made with a stamp set that I brought with me and nothing I bought in yesterday’s shopping therapy got used in the making of these cards. Still shopping always makes me feel better.
I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called Thoughtful Branches. I had bought it a while ago on the advice of my Stampin Up Demonstrator and friend Jennifer. She was right, It is a very versatile stamp set, that I believe is no longer available. To show how versatile it really is, I used the same stamp in two very different ways. Once as a tree and once as a Hydrangea flower. Looks pretty cool I think.
Supplies: Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches stamp set and framelits dies, Neenah Cardstock, Simon Says Stamp woodgrain cardstock, Reverse Confetti All Framed Up die, Core’dinations cardstock, Scor tape
