It's time to Blog around the Block!

If you've arrived from Marisol's blog, you're in the right place! Welcome!

I love participating in the SUDSOL blog hops because it gives me the opportunity to check out my fellow demonstrators and all the amazing things they create! Many of them use templates and ideas found ONLY on the SUDSOL site. This is one of the FABULOUS benefits of the SUDSOL membership - exclusivity! We have an ENTIRE gallery filled with ideas to help you get your stamping business going!

Since last week I was HEAVY into "Prom-Sanity" while I was creating for this blog hop, my first two samples are My Digital Studio created layouts:

For the above layout, I used a pre-designed digital template available for purchase with My Digital Studio called Grad Party. All I had to do was a pic, my DD's name and the name of her school. DONE! Five minutes or less!

For the above layout, I used elements from the same Grad Party suite and designed my own layout. This one took me a little longer, but it was DEFINITELY worth it. :)

The next two cards are two that I created for my Stampin' Extravaganza event which I'll be hosting on June 23rd. YOU get a sneak peek - LUCKY YOU!!!!

This first card was created using one of the new IN COLOURS for 2012-2014 called Primrose Petals. It's SO pretty!

I started off with the card base and then decided on the strip of designer series paper from Patio Party and the stitched grosgrain ribbon. I was never a big fan of the grosgrain ribbon in the past, but since they've added that row of stitching down the middle, it seems to have made it "softer" and easier to work with.

I then ran the oval frame from the Designer Frames Folders through the Big Shot and cut it out. I stamped the sentiment in Primrose Petals and punched it out using the Extra Large oval punch which fits perfectly in the centre of the frame!

The finishing touch was the itty bitty button with a length of baker's twine tied through it.

This next card is one that could be reproduced quite easily...for a WHOLE graduating class!

This card base is More Mustard with a layer of More Mustard DSP. I stamped the sentiment in Not Quite Navy on Whisper White and matted it on a piece of Not Quite Navy. I added a little bow...just 'cause I could!

Here's a teeny peek at one of the other cards we'll be making at Extravaganza:

I do hope you've enjoyed your visit to my blog and that you'll leave me some comments to let me know what you enjoyed most!
