Some days are just better than others, aren’t they? So far, this day has been a great one. First of all, I found out that I won a stamp set from The Ton stamps during their latest release giveaway. Double, Double, Quadruple Yahoo about that! Secondly, I finished preparing for a Scrapbook retreat that I am going to this weekend. Usually going to a retreat entails packing in haste, and then lamenting that the perfect item for what I am working on, is in my stash at home. “Not this time”………….she says proudly. This time I have made up about 10 homemade kits in preparation. Everything I need for each double page layout is tucked into a 12X12 zip lock bag. Some assembly required, of course, and some blank spaces to be filled with items from the shopping frenzy that is part of the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival, but generally they are “Good to Go” and I won’t be stymied from completing quite a few pages.
The last good thing that has happened so far (hopefully more to come :-)), is that I got another coffee card made for the bloghop. It is a set that I didn’t have for the last bloghop, so it is always fun to see what can be done with it.
There is no mistaking the fall theme in this one:
Today’s card started with a desire to use the cute stitched frame die shown on the card. It is a Creative Expressions die that comes with a plethora of little dies to fill the frame windows. Mine has a garden theme, but they have a variety of themes and frame designs. I wanted to make a coffee card instead of a garden card, so I went on a stash search. Somewhat amazingly, I was able to find enough coffee die images to fill the frames.
