There is the main work area of my desk. Not as bad as last week. I had to clear a space yesterday and pull up the leaf to work on a batch of cards.
I finally figured out why the Stampin' Up! blog took a dump in lack of activity. I am a visual person. I have a big blog board I use as an Editorial Calendar for all of my blogs. What is supposed to post when and to which blog. I have a separate one just for SU. As soon as I pulled it out yesterday and began planning blog posts, the creative juices began flowing and this is part of the result:
I'd seen a VIDEO by Dena Rekow for doing simple cards with Designer Series Paper as the focal point. I have 4 packs of Fresh Florals and knew this was the perfect project for some of that paper.
Fresh Floral DSP
Coordinating Cardstock colors
Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide
I'm not sure how everything came about but once I started cutting, I decided I'd make six of each floral pattern. I chose Smokey Slate cardstock for my card base and for the mats on the Powder Pink.
When I have them all together and ready for the blog on Saturday, for Keep It Simple Saturday, I will have 40 cards! 3 Happy Birthday, 2 Celebrate and 2 Thank You in each color combination.
That's it for my desk this week. Who's Miss Julia and why am I here? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground for all the details. Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you. Please leave your number and you'll be among the first on my list.
