New Card and sneak peek!

Hi, my crafty friends... it's been a relaxing weekend and I wanted to share a card that I did for The Rubber Cafe blog today. 
 I love Halloween colors (orange & black) together but instead of using them for a holiday card, I created this fun Thank You card.  I explain how I did it over here.

It's the end of the month and I'm going to share with you my final layout for September's kit at Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.  This page is about how I am guilty of self doubt.  I sometimes take forever creating a work of art or page because I compare myself to other's work or worry about every little design choice.   It can be crippling!
 For this page, I used the My Mind's Eye paper that had a lot of the design already done so I just had to balance the page out and make it mine. 
 I layered some scraps, ribbon edged strips, and doily to create another area of interest on the page where the photo can be spotlighted.  LOVE those Pink Paislee rub ons!  They are gorgeous!
 Here you can see the layers and the little black flower added.  The feminine details in this kit made me so happy!
 Now to embellish the empty space to tie the two design areas together.  I punched some hexagons and layered a few of the stickers over it.  Then added my title with those cute little letters!
This was one of my favorites this month!!   Tomorrow is our new month's kit release... October is "Journey" and this is an AWESOME kit!  It's full of fabulousness!  Here's a sneak peek of the kit:

Head over to SFTIO website tomorrow to snag one of these delicious kits full of brand new products and gorgeous color!

Have a creative day!

Hi Jen, looking forward to seeing you and Deb in Rochester in November. I saw both your names on the Friday night workshop schedule - tell Deb I signed up to take her class!

By the way,I noted on the online registration form that there is a bus to the the university's Memorial Art Gallery and ArtisanWorks. I can't go, because I'm teaching a workshop at that time, but when my son went to U.Rochester he took us to ArtisanWorks. It is an AMAZING venue - one of the coolest I've been to. if you are free Saturday afternoon don't miss it! Take the bus; it's a confusing location to find.
