Chevron Gets Punchy

Playing with my chevron punch tonight this was a very quick card I created using the punch and layering two different colors behind the punch. Cool effect.  The color combination- cool Caribbean, Garden Green and Caypso Coral on Whisper White is a sweet color combo on the Stampin' Up! color chart. I kind of like the color. It's fresh looking without looking to seasonal.  Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping, Sandy

Event Saturday: Beth's Bosom Buddies

Tomorrow, Saturday November 9, 11-3 at Ramsey Elementary on County Road 5.  Fantastic fundraiser.  I will be there showcasing the great scrapbooking and digital products from Stamoin' Up! Ten years of this event, my first time. So excited.  

Everybody Clean Up

With no classes today and needing to get in the zone, I decided to spend a couple hours getting my zone back in order. As I unpacked bag after bag I realized how full my schedule had been in the spring and summer.  With my then knee Shaky putting away stuff and for that matter prepping for events was difficult. Hank makes it easier every day. So bags and boxes piled up.  I am still working on some areas of my large space (entire 3rd floor of house). Family stuff has drifted in. I've still got a small pile of my dad's stuff from the funeral. Piles of kids schoolwork and some miscellaneous scrapbooking stuff tossed here and there. I want my space all organized the way it used to be when both my knees were more cooperative. It won't take much but I am not to lift heavy stuff for a year and that means waiting for help. Ah well. It will get done. Would love to start holding all day scrap events down here again. Especially since my local big box scrap store closed. That was a goo
