Delight in Life

Just finished this card using the Delight in Life and the Happy Harmony Stamp Sets from the Stampin' Up Sellabration catalog. I fell in love with the patterned paper when I saw it at Hobby Lobby several months ago so I just had to buy it. I thought it seemed to go well with Stampin' Up's Bordering Blue cardstock and French Blue grosgrain ribbon. I also used Really Rust cardstock but it doesn't match as close as I would like it to but it will do. I believe the patterned paper is from the Wild Asparagus line of papers.

My Next Workshop

I've been working on cards for my next workshop. For once I'm a little ahead of the game as I'm usually making cards the night before a workshop. Since it's Sell-a-bration time I've made all of my cards using Sell-a-bration sets. The Very Punny set is one of my favorites as you can see. I love those Marvy scalloped punches. They are just too cool. Hope you enjoy the samples as much as I enjoyed making them.

** For the "So Very sweet" ladybug card I got my inspiration from a card by Lorie that she had posted on her blog "Live-Love-Laugh-Create" on 1/7/2007. You can find her blog at:

Once you've watched this video check out Gina K. Design's website,, to watch another free video clip on woodgraining. Gina K. provides super easy instructions on this beautiful background technique.

If the video isn't clear enough, make sure you have the little screen set to "original." There is a down arrow button you can click on to make sure you have it set right. Change it to original if it's not set there. A bigger screen makes it too fuzzy.
