Is it just me...

Or have I been painfully neglecting my blog?? I'm sorry! I've actually been really busy, up to my eyeballs, in wonderful, exciting stamp projects for Just Johanna...but I can't share even one little design yet...You'll just have to keep checking back... ;-)

But I won't leave you hanging tonight, I do have some other designs to share! This one, which I totally love, I can take zero credit for! This beautiful design/layout was created by Nichole Heady from Papertreyink. I believe this design was used to showcase the very first stamp release from PTI and I've remembered it all these long months...just waiting for the time when I could shamefully copy her design! I mean what's not to love? It's simple, clean, classy...Nichole - you're one great designer! :-)

Last week I picked up an amazing pack of double-sided paper from K&Company and couldn't wait to break into it and use up some of that beautiful paper. Since I haven't had a lot of free time I thought creating a batch of quick cards, for basic occasions, such a birthdays, would be the perfect opportunity to use the paper.

I simply cut out a circle with my Coluzzle cutting system, cut off one of the edges, adhered my circle to the card, and pierced around the paper. I then used my PTI stamps to create the sayings and embossed them in gold. All of the cards were made with a lovely textured vanilla cardstock, which looks very nice in person. In total, my batch of cards took about a half hour.

Hip-Hip Hooray! And remember, if you do copy a design, give credit where credit is due and don't sell your copied pieces! :-)

Enjoy and happy Tuesday!
