Workshop projects

I have a workshop tomorrow. My friend, Winona is my hostess. Should be a great time!! It will be a mix of people/abilities. And some of them haven't stamped before. Here are my two projects.

Simply Said is one of my all time favorite stamp sets and seems to be my 'go to' set lately. The first project is a Z-fold card. Colored with the Stampin' Up! Markers. The corners are punched with the ticket corner punch and mounted.

The next project I saw on Stampin' Academy's blog. It is a key ring post it holder... HOW HANDY WILL THAT BE??? Again, Simply Said stamp set, scallop and small circle punch.

I'm really excited about doing this workshop tomorrow. She should have a good number of people. I just hope I don't forget anything! LOL.

I spent today and yesterday with my friend Jade. We made a sling for her adorable baby, Hydie. And then we made a cool drawstring backpack diaper bag. I forgot to take pictures, though, before she left.

I lost my hit counter when I changed up my layout template. So I'm starting over.

My new Riley Moose from Hanna Stamps arrived yesterday. I could not wait to ink him up. My husband works on the c130's for the Coast Guard. Riley just had to be a Coastie!

I have a new toy!!

Hubby (gotta luv him) bought me a new camera! I just love it. For Valentine's day he got me this lighting studio, so I can take better pictures of my projects.

I actually do have some stamping projects to post, I just need to remember to grab the pictures off my main computer. I promise, I haven't been slacking! Although with this weather, I would love to just curl up and snooze for a few months! I swear, the bears have it right with HIBERNATION!

Ok, so if you haven't seen my friend Becky's blog, you must go as quick as possible and check out all her fabulous new projects with Papertrey Ink stamps. Becky is so incredibly talented and was recently named to Papertrey's Design Team. YAY BECKY!

I'll be back later to post my projects!
