Hello again! Did you think I abandoned all of you? I am very sorry for my extended leave of absence. I just needed to take a blogging break for a while and concentrate on other aspects of my life. I'm working full time, spending time with the family, maintaining my weight loss, training to be a Weight Watcher's leader and teaching my stamping classes.
I am happy to report that I am back to blogging. I'm not sure what the frequency of my posts will be. I just don't want to put that pressure on myself again.
Let me show you one of my latest cards. It uses quite a few products available as your Sale-a-bration freebies!!!
I just love the new Pinwheel Sizzlit. I've come up with a trick to put the pinwheel together easily. Simply, after cutting the pinwheel using your Big Shot place the center hole onto the point of a paper piercing tool. Fold over each flap and place it's hole onto the point of the paper piercing tool. Repeat for the other three flaps making sure to hold the already folded flaps with your thumb nail. After all four are folded, lift the pinwheel off the tool and insert the mini brad.
Another tip: try using the debossed side of the cloud paper. I love the different look it created!!!
Here's my card recipe in case you want to make this card yourself!!! If you need to purchase any of the supplies used to make it, I hope you'll stop by my ONLINE STORE. Thanks for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
