CCREW0612CF: June Creative Crew Challenge, Catalog Focus

For June, the second Creative Crew Challenge was a Catalog Focus challenge. The challenge rules said to “use one ‘new’ item in combination with one ‘old’ item. [Not] ‘old’ as in age or vintage…something that has been in catalog for a while.”

Once again, I used Primrose Petals, this time as my “something new,” along with the sentiment from  Sweet Essentials. For the “something old,” I used the Create A Cupcake stamp set and the Cupcake Punch. As someone pointed out, it also has something borrowed (the stamp & punch) and something blue! 🙂 Hope you like it!

CCREW0612DF: June Creative Crew Challenge, Color Focus

Each month, the Creative Crew on Split Coast Stampers (SCS) hosts four challenges for SU! Demonstrators. For June, the first was a Color Focus challenge. The challenge rules said to “use just three colors: Basic Gray, White, and one new In Color. You can pick any new color you want, but your project can only have three colors, no more, no less.”

Like yesterday’s project, I used Primrose Petals as my one new In Color; it seems to be one of my go-to colors at this point 🙂 Hope you like it!

happy day to you

CFC58: Pretty In Pink

If you’ve looked at any of the previous cards I’ve posted here, or anywhere for that matter, you’ll notice that my style tends to lean towards “Clean and Simple” (CAS). Well, I recently found a blog of weekly challenges called CAS-ual Fridays and I’m really excited to post my very first entry! This week’s challenge was to make a CAS card using pink. I used one of the new SU! 2012-14 In Colors, Primrose Petals, as my pink of choice. I hope you all like it!

I’ve joined Stampin’ Up!

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything. Life’s been crazy busy and I haven’t had a whole lot of crafting time. Things are settling down, though; and hopefully I’ll be able to spend some quality time with my paper and ink 🙂

Speaking of, you may have noticed that I’ve edited a number of previous posts, deleting some links. I’ve decided to step down from A Muse Studio and become an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!; per my agreement with them, my blog cannot contain links to competing companies.

I’m really excited about the new 2012-13 catalog and the 2012-14 InColors. The new holiday catalog is coming next month and there are loads of fun products and ideas in there too 🙂

Here’s a link to my Stampin’ Up! website:

Come check out the newest catalog, current promotions, and be sure to let me know if you want to host a class/workshop or if you have any questions.

Pictures of my newest card creations are coming soon!
