Make & Takes from SU! Convention

Well, I haven't had anytime this week to do stamping, UGH! So I thought I'd post some pictures of the projects we made at convention. I would have to say that this years make & takes were some of my favorites. This one here to the left is using the new set, Inspired by Nature. I have a feeling I'll be using this stamp it! Cardstock used were from the new In Colors, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss.

Here's a couple more, a Mini Album and Bookmark using the new stamp set, Eastern Blooms. This set will be another favorite. Love these book marks, great gifts for your friends, family and the kids teachers. Notice the new Filigree Designer brads? Also used the scallop chipboard square and sponged it with Old Olive Craft ink, then used the new Pacific Point striped grosgrain ribbon to attach it altogether.

A Note of Thanks Box. Oops! I just realized my little banner that's suppose to be attached to the rosette is missing. Can you tell how tired I am, I've been staying up too late watching the Olympics and still getting up at 4:30 for work. Anyhoo, this was fun to make especially the rosette and soooo easy too. We just took a 11" piece of ribbon, weaved linen thread(with needle from crafters' tool kit) along the edge of ribbon about 1/4" apart, then just pull thread to gather ribbon in a circle and there you have a rosette. Around the outer edge we used crystal effect and the silver chunky glitter. I'm sure I'll be using more of these rosettes in future projects. Hope you liked seeing some of these fun projects.
