Regional Projects...

Highlighting some new products!

Sorry I've gone MIA again.. My days just seem to fly by anymore, I was able to get some quiet time in today and finish up some of my make n' takes from the Orlando Regional I attended in Jan. Hard to believe this stuff has been sitting here for weeks still untouched.. And I still have my Make n' Takes from Leadership to assemble lol..

Anyways on to the cards....This one is a treat pouch and it uses the set Soft Summer. It also features one of our new Embosslit dies called Simply Flower. These are really cool. The DSP I used with it has a white core, so once you emboss the image with the die; take your sanding block and sand over the raised image and it shows the core of the paper giving you a new look!

The brad in the middle of the flower is one of our new corduroy brad/button combos in chocolate chip... You have to see these in person to really get the feel for them. They are gorgeous!!

This next card uses the same stamp set and it showcases water coloring.. I used markers on the watercolor paper. I stamped my image in StazOn and then I outlined parts of the image with my Markers and went over those lines with my Aqua Painter to blend them in. This is just one of the many ways you can watercolor an image.

The card above and the card below are the down falls of why I didn't get much done while I was at Regional. The above card was stamped oh I'd say about 4 times before I just went with what I had and said I'd finish at home!... I was having some issues.

This card also uses the set Soft Summer; and it won when the day was over. As you can see I have a make shift Band-Aid on my Really? How clever was that? I was given 2 new pieces of paper but I just keep messing up.. This card also uses the new colored Library Clips and the new Eyelet Border Punch.

I love, love, love this layout and the layout size!! It's an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 page perfect for those of us that can handle a 6x6 but don't do well with a 12x12..(That's so me.) I can't wait to find a photo for it. We didn't get any snow in FL last year and no snow yet in VA..

Here you can see more of the elements on the page. It uses the new On Board Timeless Type Chipboard, Library Clips, Metal Edge tags and a Rhinestone Brad. The chipboard was colored with White & Olive Craft Pads and the Blue arrow was colored with a sponge and the Pacific Point Ink Pad.

I stamped the Snowflake from the Best Wishes and more stamp set that we received free with White on the Pacific Blue Card Stock and then went over it with the VersaMarker and it really made that snowflake pop!. I then punched it out with the
1 3/4 inch circle Punch and layered it on the tag. The circles along the edge of the page are punched from the same coordinating Card stock with a 3/4 inch circle punch and randomly placed.

I still have 2 more projects to finish from Regional as well.. So I will try to get those done tomorrow and posted for you. I started at the gym with a trainer on Tuesday;I'm sore and not sitting too well for long periods of time so bare with me..
