{warm wishes}

Last week on Splictoaststampers.com, I found this cute little box tutorial. It's the perfect size for 3x3 notecards, or to fill with candy!

We'll be making one like this (different patterned paper) at my next class on August 30th. I have ordered two of the new patterned paper packs, Urban Garden and Haiku, and haven't decided which to use yet. They're both very pretty!

Well, I'm off to work. Have a good day!

Supplies:
  • Stamps - Hugs and Wishes, Fabulous Flowers
  • Paper - Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose designer paper
  • Ink - Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip
  • Dimensionals, red line tape, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, Scor-Pal

{been a long time}

Wow -- I really can't believe it's been three weeks since I last posted! But that makes sense. It's been three weeks since I started my new job, and that has had me occupied. Always worried about doing the right thing, and don't want to screw anything up! :) For the most part, I think it's a good change for me. I especially like having the weekends off......

This weekend Adam had some of his buddies back visiting from Chicago, and they had their annual Fantasy Football Draft. Not sure how I ended up over there, but I had fun anyway. Just hung out, drank beer, and ate the Italian beef sandwiches that John brought back from Chicago. Yum! If anyone is interested, you can buy them online here. I think I may have to order those again someday....

Anyway, the monogram card above is one we'll be doing at my August 30th card class at my house. We'll make 6 cards, plus a 3-D item I'll be sharing with you later this week. Cost is $20, please email me at chapinjennifer@yahoo.com by August 28th to sign up.

Look for more regular posting as of now. It just took me awhile to get into the new groove of this job. :) Have a good night!

Supplies (all Stampin' Up):
  • Stamps - Baroque Motifs, Big Deal Alphabet
  • Paper - Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Whisper White
  • Ink - Baja Breeze and So Saffron
  • 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
