As promised!!!

Well we all made it safely home from vacation!! What fun!! We took the kids and grandkids too - ever vacation with a 1 year old?? No matter - she so cute you can't really be annoyed :) We had tons of fun and spent way too much, ate too much and got a little too much sun. Still we are happy to be home!!

These are the promised inspired projects. I made the scrapbook page first using a sketch. The card I made with the scraps.

I used the Petals & Paisley Designer Series paper as inspiration along with the new color combos using the new In Colors with existing colors. I used the color combo of Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. The Wild Wasabi as the base with the Pretty in Pink coming from the designer paper. And touches of Regal Rose and Close to Cocoa. If you look closely the scrapbook page has a couple of the new rhinestone brads anchoring the strip across the bottom of the page. The card has a piece of chipboard covered with paper, the ribbon was white grosgrain which I dyed with my ink pad.

This cool card was created by Elana Johnson using the Holidays & Wishes set, Paisley background, Blue Bayou, River Rock & More Mustard cardstock. And of course there is the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Oooollllaaaaalllaaaaa!!! :)

This cute card was made by Toni Sizemore using the Perfect Presentation (hostess set), the See You Around wheel, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink cardstock. Added touches with the gingham ribbon, brad and gel pen are the icing on the snowman! ;)

The picture doesn't do this card justice, this is Beth Weinstein's creation. She used the Baroque Motifs set, with Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and Soft Sky designer paper for this card. The medallion is covered with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Pretty!!!

This is Cierra Buchwald's creation using the new Pick a Petal set! Such fun you can make all sorts of flowers using the petals in this set.

Swap cards!!!! Aren't they beautiful? :)

These are the cards that I got in return in the swap I mentioned before. I have them pinned up to give me inspiration. I they did inspire a great scrapbook page that I'll post later. First I want to show you closeups of the cards that I have permission to share.
