SAF2015: Red Carpet Challenge

Today was totally enjoyable and I really did get to try a few techniques that were new to me. That's great!  I am already looking forward to next year.


SAF 2015: Runway Inspiration Challenge

I think this was my favorite challenge today because I loved the inspiration photos.  It was hard to decide which one to choose.  Finally I picked this one.

I actually made this card twice because I got carried away with the flowers and in the end did not like the first result.  So here is a paired down version with just enough flowers to have a pop of color.


SAF 2015: Pins & Needles Challenge

I do enjoy to look of stitching on a card and I like the idea of stamps that mimic this look.  Unfortunately, I don't have any.  Often I just use a white pen and drawn perfect short lines.  Today I got out my 20 year old sewing machine and fiddled with it until I could get a couple of rows of metallic silver thread to sew through cardstock.  My first attempt to sew around a circle was a disaster.  So, here is a simple bit a stitching.


SAF 2015: Mix & Match Challenge

I rarely used multiple pattern papers on a card so Betsy's video was very helpful today.  I think it will be easier for me to get a better result now that I understand the basics.  Here is my card.

SAF 2015: Patterns Challenge

It was difficult to choose a pattern for this challenge because I liked so many of the designs.  Needless to say I will have wonderful inspiration for future cards.  I chose Ashley's pretty card because I have the dies to make this card but have rarely used them.  This was a good opportunity to get them out again.


SAF 2015:Threads Challenge

This is the first time I have ever put thread nested on a card.  I can't say why I have not tried it because I love the look. After putting this card together I am sure I will use it again. Here is my take on Laura Bassen's wonderful card.


SAF 2015: Bridal Challenge

Well it has started, the Papertrey Ink STAMP-A-FAIRE!  It is going to be a fun day.  To start off I have my all white Bridal card to share.
