Today I used the same Paper Smooches set I used on THIS CARD. I just love these cute little cups and cookies. I used Copics to color them. The background stamp is a new one to me – it’s Curled Pattern by Basic Grey and Hero Arts. Um, well, I used it upside down by accident. Did you notice? I thought you might not, so I just left it, lol!
You could replace the sentiment with “Happy Valentine’s Day” if you want – I think it would work.
If you remember this Post-Holiday Enabling post, I told you that I ordered the Borders Scoring Plate from Stampin’ Up! Well, I’m here to report back that it is not a product I recommend. First, it’s very difficult to get good placement of the scores, the paper tends to move on the plate, and there is no way to easily start at the edge of your card or scrapbook page. I plan to return it, at my own shipping expense per Stampin’ Up!. I love Stampin’ Up! products, but I have to be honest about this one. Disappointing.
Okay, so on to more positive things… this Sunday marks the 3-year anniversary of my first blog post! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long! And… I’m only about 50 YouTube subscribers away from hitting 5,000. I find it hard to believe that many people actually watch my videos. Now, if you’re feeling inadequate about your card-making skills (yes, trust me, me too), go check out my early posts. It just goes to show you that if you keep doing it, you’ll get better over time.
I just placed another order with Ellen Hutson. Love that store. If you buy from her site, she sends out “frequent buyer” coupons. Mine expires on Thursday, so I had to use it, lol!!
Anyway, here’s to 3 more years of fun card-making!! Thanks for coming back to visit.
