So I will be honest with you. I have not had the best of weeks on a personal level. I have had one of those weeks where each morning you wake up wanting to pull the covers over your head and curl up in a ball. But some how you manage to get up and get the days work done. And then Friday came and I knew I had two options. I could find a way to get some stamping done or post that I would be taking the week off.
I opted to see if I could get some stamping done. I won't say it was easy, forcing oneself to be creative is never fun. But something happened along the way. I started to forget about my worries and enjoy the creative process. One simply cannot worry and be creative at the same time. It was a wonderful break and it reminded me why I love being creative.
Project #23-Happy Birthday Card
Supplies: Stamps and Die-Papertrey Ink (Birthday Tags), pattern paper and banner-Little Yellow Bicycle, circle punch, Spellbinders die, Dew Drops and ink.
Project #24-Turning 8 Scrapbook Page
I has been such a long time since I could scrapbook on a regular basis and I had forgotten how much I loved it. I often opt for cards during my creative sessions as they take less time to create. But I definitely have fallen in love again with scrapbooking. :)
When I use stamps on my scrapbook pages, I often use them as accent items. Which is how I used them on these pages. I soooooo wish I could show you more of the pages, but the are for an upcoming class.
Supplies: Stamps-border stamp (Inkadinkado), small star stamp (Hero Arts), tag sentiment (Papertrey Ink-Tag-Its #10), birthday sentiment (Papertrey Ink-Birthday Tags), birthday word (Little Yellow Bicycle), pattern paper (Fancy Pants-Rough and Tough), ink, circle punch and tag punch.
While I did not get many projects done this week, I did use a lot of stamps sets. :) I would love to know what you have been working on. Post and tell me about your week and be sure to link your work below.
Thanks for stopping by,
