I don't have anything new to show you, so I'm posting some pictures of cards I made a while back. Please don't pay attention to the quality of these photos. I took these pics before I started blogging and realized I should pay attention to the background.

  • stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
  • card stock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Tempting Turquoise
  • ink: Tempting Turquoise, Whipser White craft
  • other: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" punches, White Embossing Powder, Chocolate Chip Ribbon

  • stamps: Define Your Life, All in the Family
  • Whisper White cs, Tempting Turquoise cs, andPetals and Paisly DSP
  • Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain ribbon

  • Bugs and Kisses
  • Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange and Green Galore ink
  • Tempting turquoise ribbon, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch

One question for all you bloggers out there, how do you remember all the exact supplies, stamps, colors and everything from every project and then find the time to list them all for every card you post? Maybe it's because my computer isn't near my stamp stuff, so by the time I post days later, I don't remember exact colors, or maybe it's because I'm just too lazy to type it all out. Anyway, if you ever want to know exactly what I used or technique I did, please leave a comment or email me. I'll get back to you. Otherwise I probably won't list supplies unless it is something that's not obvious.

I really like Bugs and Kisses. I really ought to just buy it. I like how you used the bright colors. It was interesting reading about your DH's job. My husband is a journeyman surveyor and a tax preparer. His ability with numbers astounds me. Kudos to people that can accomplish complicated feats of engineering :-). tfs

The third card, bugs and kisses, is a great card that can be used for many kid type of cards. I can see so many possibilities by just changing the sentiments to fit the occasion. Good job, I love it.

These cards turned out so nicely! I was also drawn to the bright colors of your Bugs and Kisses card - I think it's because I've been eyeing that stamp set for so long. To answer your question, this is how I keep track of stuff used for a card. Using Word, I made little blocks of printer paper that have "Keywords, Stamps, Paper, Ink, Accessories, Technique" printed on each one of them. As I make a card or project, I fill out the info as I go along. It seemed cumbersome at first, but it's become habit now and done so quickly that I don't even think about it anymore. When done, I just stick it on the back w/removable tape and it's SO EASY to upload w/info now. HTH's!

Those are so fun! I am in awe that you can use the Bold Brights and come up with such cute cards--they scare me to death and everything I make with them I do all I can to tone them down....

But you have embraced the BB's and made such cute things! Bravo!!! :)
