Projects from Ellen's Workshop

Here are the two projects that the group did at Ellen's workshop last night. The card idea is from and I made a few modifications. The 6x6 scrapbook page is original.

Decor Elements

Craft room (not much to it, but it looks great on the wall)

All three above are in the Living room

Here are a few pictures of the Decor Elements that are in my home. Let me tell you, I love 'em! I'm definitely going to be getting some more. Let me know what you think!

I just received my shipment from Stampin' Up! I'm super excited. I now have the new Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, In Color CS and inks, new stamp sets from the Fall/Winter catalog and the Decor Elements. I'll be posting several pictures in the coming days with what I've done with everything. I'm currently prepping for my friend Ellen's workshop. This is my first workshop to demo for, so I'm a little nervous, but very excited. I'll post the projects we did after the workshop. A few of my blog readers are attending, so I don't want to spoil the surprise. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

The Letter S

Here is a picture of a letter S I did for my little girls room. Super easy! She loved it, in fact she didn't want me to hang it on the wall.

KWerner Design Blog Color Inspiration #16

Hi Everyone! Here is my card for Kristina's Color Inspiration. I busted out my new embossing heat tool for this one. This was the first time that I'd embossed outside of a stamp camp. I'm such a dork, I got so excited when I was finished. It really is the little things that makes me happy. Anyway, I like the colors and the way the card turned out. Let me know what you all think!

Emily's Card

Here is the card I made for Emily using the Perfect Princess stamp set. I just love black and white with other colors. Here I used Certainly Celery and So Saffron. You know what, it kinda looks like my blog...heh!

Stamp Camp at Jeannie's

I just got back from Stamp Camp at my upline, Jeannie's. Here are a few cards that we made. It was a lot of fun and I got to do a few new techniques. Emily was there too, so you may see some of the same cards at her blog.

Friday, July 11, 2008

And the winner is....

The winner is Emily! I will be making a card for you using the Perfect Princess stamp set. The other stamp sets I purchased were True Friend, Wanted and Priceless. I really love all of these.

Monogram Stationary

Here are a couple of cards that I made to show my friend Kathy at The 4 Queens. I also made some very similar ones that I gave to my friend Jennie for her birthday. They are very easy to make and you can personalize them for any occasion.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, my friend Kathy asked for me to make some cards to sell in her shop. I took several for her to choose from and she bought them all! I'm very excited. I'm super critical of my work, so I wasn't sure if she would like them. I guess she did. I didn't take pictures of all the cards, but I'm sure if you stop by her shop you can see them and maybe buy them!

Don't forget to post your guess for the card giveaway.

Fireworks, Friend Card and Blog Candy!

Well the 4th of July weekend is winding down. We saw some really great fireworks Saturday night from my in law's home. The Texas World Speedway was celebrating its 40 anniversary and had a fireworks show. I was really impressed.
Here's a friend card I did using the Western Sky Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! I also used White, Ruby Red and Soft Sky CS. The stamp set is For a Friend Hostess Set. I really like these colors together. It reminds me of the triple smile card I did a while back, click here to see it.
I'm expecting an order tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it as usual, but this order is especially exciting because it includes stamps that I'm going to be using to make cards that I'm going to sell at my friend Kathy's shop, The 4 Queens. I have several cards already made for her, but these new ones are being made with stamps with her and her shop in mind. Here's a hint....these stamps are found in the Spring/Summer Stampin' Up! catalog and if you check out my previous blog about The 4 Queens, you should be able to figure out at least one of the 4 stamp sets I ordered. Post a comment with your guess and I'll randomly select someone to receive a card using that stamp set. You have until Thursday at 8:00am to post.
