My Unintentional Card – November PTI Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

When was the last time you cleaned out your stash of scrap papers and found a gem? Well, I have recently spent an hour just throwing out scraps way too small to use – whatever possessed me to keep a scrap paper a sliver wide behoves me.

Anyhow, guess what I found – these 2 negative die cut of a poinsetta (it’s so old I don’t even remember which project I used it for – it’s not on my blog – I’ve looked.)

Well, this is what I came up with:

What a gem! I love it – and it’s so easy to make to. My negative die cut is on PTI Stamper Select - that is the only cardstock I have in my house – I love that it’s so thick that a negative diecut stands up well on it and I also use it for my Copic coloring. It’s the best! I just stamped a simple sentiment, slap a DP from Authentique Paper behind and popped up the negative die cut and finished with a button also from my stash. It’s so my style – so I guess I’ll be making more of it for Arty Carty Handmade Cards.

And here is my inspiration for the card:

Have a fun day cleaning out your stash too – you never know what you’ll find.

Thank you for your support.

I just wanted to do a short post to update everyone who helped or supported me in my business expo this past weekend at Discover Victoria Day. The event went WAY better than expected and I made a ton of new connections with the businesses in the City.

Here is a photo of part my display, before the crowd showed up:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all your help and support!

I couldn’t have done it without you.

Lennar @ Rhapsody Open House event …

Hi there bloggers!! The Lennar @ Rhapsody Open House has come to an end. What a wonderful showing of people who were willing to share their time and fun personalities. The model house shows beautifully and everyone was visible impressed. You can see the floor plan of the model here.

I also can’t beginning to thank everyone for their support with card sales. It certainly is a boost in ego to hear someone compliment and buy my handmade cards. I truly love making cards and it has taken me a number of years to be able to put a price tag on my creations and part with it. Thanks Scott for including me in the event – I am armed with inspiration for my next batch of cards.

Till the next post ….
