Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this 1st day of 2012 finds you all well and happy!
I hope you all had a safe and happy New Years Eve!
We had a very lazy day yesterday. I cooked a four bone Rib Roast with baked veggies and salad for our New Years Eve dinner and no desert! I think we are in agreement that, that part of our previous dinners has got to go! We spent the day playing in the craft room Jeff conquering the world and I with my new toys! Yippee, the Man in Brown can late Friday night and dropped off a big box of goodies, so I got to play all day.
Here is my first creation of the year.
I used several new products you will see in the New Occasions Mini Catalog - Apothecary Art Stamp Set, A Hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes, SU's Framelits - Labels Collection, Edgelits-Adorning Accents, 1/8th Organdy Ribbon in Calypso Coral, Calypso Coral Bakers Twine and the Sale-S-Bration (SAB) Designer Series Paper (DSP) Everyday Enchantments and of course Pearls.
Somethings I thought were extra fun were, while playing with the Edgelits Die I was able to make the circle trim (displayed in Pool Party CS) by placing the edges close. After I made the first initial cut I placed the die very close together flipped it over then lined it up to make a circle and cut it again. *Hot Tip I had to use a bit of tape to secure the die from slipping.
The second item I played around with was that I ran a needle and thread through the Organdy Ribbon to make this cute Ribbon embellishment along the right side of the stamped image. Close up it looks like tiny Ribbon Candy.
I also hope you find time to play this weekend. Let's make this a great New Year of crafting and fun!
