Weekend projects

Sunday evenings are so depressing to me... weekend over. Back to workday routines. (I do have a job tomorrow, too, so back to work. Blah!)

I got 2 big projects done this weekend though!
1. Book to Look Board
With my first class coming up and my first workshop shortly after, I took some inspiration from SCS and made a Book to Look Board. I think it turned out pretty! Sure, not all the materials are SU! materials.... but you know what? I don't have enough money right now to buy ALL my stamp supplies again. I will use what I have. And if the Book to Look board works.... then I'll have some money to buy new stuff!

So the idea is the person books a show with me, then she can choose a card from o
ne of the envelopes. Once that person's show is held & closed, I will add her prize to her order, on me. I would totally go for something like that if I was on the fence! I love a good free gift. My gifts are:
Classic Stampin' Pad, pack of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, pack of envelopes, designer brads, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, or Stampin' Write marker.

Supplies used:
Pretty in Pink 12x12 cardstock
Soft Sky 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
Always Artichoke 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
chipboad letters from Archivers
Envelopes from Michaels
Scrapbook frame from Michaels

2. Christmas card swap
Pretty self-explanatory. I love this set! I can't believe there aren't more users of it. Of course, I may love it because "Holly Jolly Christmas" is my favorite holiday song! :) I had to make 9 of these cards. I love them. I may use these as my personal Christmas cards, too.

Supplies used:
Season of Joy stamp set
Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set
Bashful Blue cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Real Red cardstock
Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad
Bashful Blue Classic Stampin' Pad
White grosgrain ribbon

That's all for me tonight! My husband FINALLY made me a birthday cake, so I'm off to eat it. Yummmmm.
