MORE exciting news!! Page Plans sketches & Paper Pretties Party!!


During the month of July I will be guest designer for Page Plans!

I've known this tidbit of info for a week (and coincidentally found out the same day I was asked to be a guest Prettie Girl) but I had to keep mum about it until the official announcement. I earned my spot for submitting this card based on a Page Plans sketch .
I am so excited because if you follow along my blog you will know I love a good sketch challenge (half the work is done already, you just have to choose your elements & work it into the sketch, tweaking & adding your flavor to it) If you haven't tried a sketch challenge before, I encourage you to do so! In addition to Page Plans, I have a list of challenges on the right of my blog - take the time to check them out if you haven't already. Challenges encourage you to branch out & discover new things in your stamping! I used a soon to be retired set by SU! Natural Beauty which I really like and soon to be retired In Colors. There is sparkle on the main image, but it was hard to capture in the waning sun last night.

Here is a 6 x 6 scrapbook page I made for the Paper Pretties Stampin' In Your Jammies party last night. It sure was fun! We even crashed the server, but Christie was on the horn & it was fixed in no time (gave us a chance to breathe & work on the challenges, though). This is using the newly released set Soakin' Up the Sun and I used the Page Plans Layout (LO) sketch for it. It may look funny that my niece is fully clothed at her 1st beach outing but since it was in March, it was pretty cold in Northern California (explained in my journaling).

P.S. - what do you think about my new Paper Pretties watermark Christie sent me?
Pretty darn cute, if you ask me!

I love the new design of your web site, awesome!! Such a beautiful card and an adorable page! Is that a stamp from paper pretties because I didn't see anything on there of their own! Maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot or maybe the only way to get them is through the club! Hmmmm?
