Button Buddies: SU catalog copy challenge

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a great start! I'm on the final 3 week countdown of summer vacation, egads! But let's don't think about that right now...

Yesterday I was so lucky to get to spend the afternoon with my friend Cindy in Quebec! Not physically, unfortunately, but we had a virtual stamping get-together with Yahoo Chat and one-hour challenges. So much fun! We find we get a lot more done with one-hour limits and accountability...although I tend to go over 10 minutes or so occasionally, oops!

This card was for our first copy the middle card on page 108 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog. We just changed up the stamps and color scheme. I also changed the rows of circles on the bottom part and used the Doily Triple Layer Punch. Because time was limited, I also copied the color scheme found on the Digital Content CD on page 14 of the catalog. Super simple, and it definitely makes me want to do some more catalog copying!

Enjoy your Monday, I find July 18th to be one of the BEST days ever! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Hmm, is July 18th your birthday?

Yes, I think you hit the nail on the head: accountability is the operative word in me being efficient when stamping. I tried a one-hour card yesterday since I was short on time and wanted to stamp, but I am nowhere near as efficient when working on my own.

I think that button snail is the most adorable thing ever, and I like how you drew from the sample but changed it enough to give it some Angie flair. It turned out great!

I love your use of staples on this card! I need to do some more catalog copying too. Such great samples in there.
