Stampin Up Cover Inspiration

When I first saw the cover of this catalog, I knew I had to try it.  My scrapmate, Linda and I had both decided we were going to make this.  It is really sweet and I had never really made a rosette before or used any tulle in anything other than to wrap up a few nuts.  This was a great learning experience for me.  When I first got the stuff it was 10 am on Aug. 3rd and not a lot of directions to be found on how to make it.  I had no idea how to put it together and then I found a youtube that was wonderful.  I want to thank StampingSchool for the great video.  I made a few changes because I am not a Stampin Up girl  so I had to use all my Close To My Heart stuff to put it together.  I did love the dies and stamps.  I think my favorite look on this set is the white border around the image.  Anyway,  I might make a few more, they are so much fun.  

Special effects on the camera.

I'm going to post the other three ornaments I made. I am having so much fun with these. I have my family here so it is harder to find time to blog but these little ornaments need to be shown.

Inspired by the SU holiday catalog

I ended up in a cold sweat after seeing the ornament on the mini, or not so mini holiday catalog from Stampin up. It was so much fun to try because there was not a lot of instructions out there. A few of my scrapbook mates had decided we were going to make it no matter what. I'm an old pro now with more than three under my belt. Lol.
