Pin It


More Baroque Motifs

...with contraband this time...just a little of Amy Butler Sola paper. And I must confess, I just got more on Saturday night at a different Michaels: a 12x12 stack (with coupon!) and mat stack of the Belle collection. Yummy! I am so crazy about everything she does, man! My Mom just bought a bunch of her fabric at a quilt show, so maybe I'll get a new quilt out of it?! Of course, I just got a beautiful new quilt from her last year, but a girl can still be greedy, right?! I digress...

If this card looks somewhat familiar, it's because the same background piece is used on a card a few posts down! I overcooked it a bit during the embossing, so this piece was tossed aside and I redid it. But after coming back across the overcooked piece several days later, it seemed like a shame to waste it, kwim?! So yes, it is very similar!

Quick note: the July Stampin' Success (Stampin' Up! demonstrator magazine) came out today, and boy am I going to be in trouble! It was full of sneak peeks from the new Fall/Winter Catalog & Idea Book. I would give you some details, but check out the blog of this fabulous demonstrator, Belinda King, she has all the info! She is such a help to all the demos on SCS, she can answer any question or find an answer for you, under 30 seconds flat, I swear! She is amazing! Okay, that's it for now! Hope your week is off to a good start!
