Fun New Stuff

A few days ago the UPS man dropped off a wonderful package for me: my Big Shot & preorder from the Occasions Mini. With my two successful (read: promotion!) workshops this past weekend, I haven't had much time to play around with my new stuff. But, amidst prepping for workshops, I did find time to make some cards. These 2 are my faves from last week.

Oval All
Stamp Set: Oval All
Cardstock: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze
Designer Series Paper: Parisian Breeze
Stamp Pads (Classic): Baja Breeze
Accessories/Tools: Oval Scallop Punch, Baja Buttons, embroidery thread

This is actually an SFYTT sketch by the talented Jen del Munro. God forbid I actually come up with a card design on my own! I'm totally stuck in an old sketch rut. But... I guess that's OK since these sketches are so awesome. I just hope they sink into my brain and unleash some original creativity soon.

First Top Note
Stamp Set: All Holidays
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, RHR Red, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Slumber Specialty
Stamp Pads (Classic): Baja Breeze, Ruby Red (marker)
Accessories/Tools: Baja Breeze Ribbon, Big Shot Top Note! :)

This card is a sketch challenge, too (no surprize!) It's WSC 72 by Jenn Balcer. But even more exciting than this actual card and the Big Shot and the sketch challenge is that this very card will be some (or all, depending on how much time I have to finish) of the swaps I take with me to the Mpls Regionals on April 4. I love it!

My next task is to make Thank Yous (I never seem to have enough!) for my 2 workshops this weekend. Neither was a terrifically LARGE workshop, but both were totally fun! Thanks to Lena & Jenn! I had an awesome time at your parties. :)


  1. Just perfect! Your cards are so cheery and the Top Note really jazzes cards up and I enjoy mine! Plus you have the NEW scallop oval... I'm jealous!! I can't wait to get mine... Smiles! :)

  2. congrats on promoting! Love what you did with the Big Shot and Oval All/Scallop oval punch! Great cards!

  3. Very cute cards! I love preorders!! Enjoy playing.

  4. Both are pretty! I love that new oval set!

  5. Congrats on your workshops and getting a BS to play with!

  6. Oh, the big shot is so fun! I hope you love it!

    I opted out of our demo blog group, but I am adding you to my friends sidebar so I can still visit you! I have really enjoyed being your blogger buddy :O)

  7. Great cards Tracy! I love them both!


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
