beauty lies within

expressing self by creating

It’s been 6 months…. August 26, 2010

since I have visited my own blog.  I haven’t stamped AT ALL!    To be honest, with not stamping, I was afraid to start up again.  Would my work be the same?  Do I remember my blog login info?  Do I have enough new Stampin’ Up! items to complete a project?  Do I know all of the new colors?  I even forgot how to use Photoshop. 

When I think of the SU! color Crumb Cake and Vintage-style, I instantly think of my dear friend Kimberly Van Diepen.  I wanted to create  some projects for her.    These are way overdue….I wanted some projects to be waiting for her at her new home.

I am extremely pleased with the turnout.  Like I said, I was afraid to stamp.  It does help when the creative ideas in my head can be executed.

(PLEASE DON’T ASK FOR A TEMPLATE OR INSTRUCTIONS (smile).  THIS BOX IDEA IS FROM A GIFT BOX I GOT AT A “v-secret” STORE DURING THE 2009 HOLIDAY SEASON.  I DISASSEMBLED THE BOX TO GET A GENERAL LAYOUT IDEA.  I DON’T HAVE DIRECTIONS TO PROVIDE).
