2013 Artisan Award Entry Blog Hop --Day 10





Day 10!! You made it to the end. I hope you've enjoy all the entries as much as I have. Please leave some love for all the Artists (which I need to do too). Today I'm sharing with you my final 3D project which is actually the project that inspired me to finally enter this year. Every year, I keep meeting to or think about entering, but up until this year, have not.

If you just came from Pam's blog then your on the right track for the Artisan Entry Blog Hop, if not you can start the hop right here and it will take you through all the blogs posting non-winning entries for 2013. Without further ado, here is my final project. It's three canvases with tons of different punches, stamps, die cuts, and accessaries from Stampin' Up! and in the center of each one a different word is die-cut -Inspire, Create, Share. Do you recognize that? It's the tagline for Stampin' Up!. The first picture is all three together and then I took close up pictures of each canvas to show more of the details.






If you're interested in specific supplies, you can email me. I would list them all here, but when I typed them up for the entry, it took two full page in Word to list them all. That's too much to put on my blog.


One last time, here is the list of all the participants.

2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop -- Day 8





Welcome to Day 8! Only two more day left, so sad. Today I'm sharing the last of my scrapbook pages.

If you just came from Pam's blog then your on the right track for the Artisan Entry Blog Hop, if not you can start the hop right here and it will take you through all the blogs posting non-winning entries for 2013. Here is another example of my fine photography. For some reason this is the only page that I got such a bad glare of the pictures, I don't know why because I made and took pictures of them all in the same day.






This page actually had no stamping. Just the die cut letters and paper are Stampin' Up!. Twitterpated and Floral District are the two DSPs that I combined for this layout. I also used the Patterned Stack DSP for the layer of the two bottom photos. The colors are Basic Grey, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you what the page is all about. These are the flowers from our Wedding. The top picture is a picture of my husband holding my bouquet and then the bottom pictures are closeups. Not bad for a florist that was found on CraigsList. If you're wondering why there aren't any other bouquets, it's because we eloped. Just the two of us, the photographer, and the pastor and his wife were present. Oh and then some random strangers passing by stopped and watched and even were taking pictures on their cell phone! That's a whole other story...maybe I"ll get around to scrapbooking it for next year's entry :).

If you get lost, here is the list of all the participants.

2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop -- Day 7





Welcome to Day 7! So sorry I'm late again on posting this today. I have just been sucking at life lately. I have some much to do before I leave for Convention (YAY!!) and I can't seem to get myself to do any of it right now. Anyways, I digress....Today I'm sharing with you another one of my cards--kind of, you'll see what I mean by that below..
If you just came from Pam's blog then your on the right track for the Artisan Entry Blog Hop, if not you can start the hop right here and it will take you through all the blogs posting non-winning entries for 2013. Okay, as I mentioned early, I'm sharing with you another card...however I didn't get a picture of it. All I have is this picture with some of the cards I was debating about using. You can see the two that I've already shared on the right hand side.  The other card I choose from this bunch is the upper left hand corner that says "Imagine..."



 
I'm so sorry that I didn't get a better picture of this card, but the colors are Old Olive, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Pumpkin Pie. Where is the Pumpkin Pie you ask? I used the rock-n-roll technique on the leaves with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. Again, you might not be able to see all the details, and I appologize again. The stamp sets I used were French Foliage and Word Play.

2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop - Day 4





It's Day 4! I hope you have been enjoying all the projects showcased in the hop so far!

If you just came from Pam's blog then your on the right track for the Artisan Entry Blog Hop, if not you can start the hop right here and it will take you through all the blogs posting non-winning entries for 2013. Today I'm showing you the first of three scrapbook pages I created. I will be honest with you and tell you that these did not come easy. I actually entered papercrafting with scrapbooking and then moved into stamping when I was introduced to Stampin' Up!. That being said, it's been a while since I have actually sat down and created a page. Additionally, scrapbooking has changed a lot since I started. It was unheard of to only have one picture on a page and everything had to be a two-page spread. Anyways, here is my page.



The colors are Daffodil Delight, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White. The only stamping was the titile and I used Morning Post to do that.  The DSP is Parkers Print. This is a picture of my dad in downtown Colorado Springs. He has since passed away due to cancer, and this was the last trip he went on. Growing up he and my mom always took us kids on road trips and I wanted to do the same for him before he passed away. The journalling says something like the story I just told, just a little less wordy.

2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop – Day 1





Welcome back! I'm back for at least the next ten days...I have been stamping and been very busy working on swaps for Convention 2013. Prior to that I was working on entry for the 2013 Artisan Award. I was not a winner, but I wanted to show you my projects. I apologize that I did not get very good pictures of my projects. I ran time down to the very last minute and even had to pay $50 to overnight my projects to Stampin' Up!

If you just came from Pam's blog then your on the right track for the Artisan Entry Blog Hop, if not you can start the hop right here and it will take you through all the blogs posting non-winning entries for 2013. I have chosen to start and end with my 3-D items and then alternated my cards and scrapbook pages. These will all be posted within the next 10 days, so be sure to bookmark my blog and come back to see all 10 projects!
The first 3-D item is my first initial twilled. This was my first attempt at twilling and it is kind of fun. So without further ado, here is my project.
The colors are Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Gray, Basic Black, and Wisteria Wonder. I used the Designer Series DSP for the twilling parts and the border and then cardstock for the butterflies. I then added rhinestones to the butterflies. The ribbon was from the Seasonal Catalog and was the 1 1/2" satin two tone basic grey/basic black. 

Here are all the people participating in this year's hop. Please stop by everyone of them to all the beautiful items they created. And don't forget to come back tomorrow for one of my card creations!

Once, again, thanks for stopping by! More swap shares are to come!

Another Papillion Potpourri Share

Okay, so I created my first post in a long time yesterday. Can you image my surprise when I looked at my posting history and found all these draft post with pictures of my swap posts from Convention 2012?! I guess I was planning on sharing them with you...So I guess I better start from where I left off last September. Here is one of my swaps, I don't remember what swap I made it for, however. The colors are Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White. The stamp sets are Papillion Potpourri and Sweet Sentiments.



A completed card is available for sale at my webstore, CraftedwithClass.com. And as always, thanks for stopping by!

Trying this again!

I'm going to try once again to make more of an effort to post more frequently, especially for those of you that have continued to view my blog in my absence. Just because I have not been blogging lately, doesn't mean that I have not be stamping. I have continued to stamp on a fairly regular basis, so that means I have lots to show you. Unfortunately  since it's been so long, some of if has retired already (think Christmas and Sale-A-Bration). In the past I have made an effort to NOT post retired items, so I think I will continue suit, unless I get a huge object. Some of my retired cards can be found at my webstore, CraftedwithClass.com.

So now, back to our regularly scheduled program, a share!! The first card that I'm going to share with you is a CASE of Mary Brown. I used the single stamp Swallowtail and the sentiment is from Field Flowers. The colors are Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wondering, and Whisper White.




I was very hesitant to buy this stamp as I didn't think it would be very versatile  but after seeing so many cute samples, I bit the bullet and ordered it. Now the challenge is to continue to use it.

Thanks for your patience and stopping by!
