ISO: Papertrey Ink Bitty Baby Blessings Paper

I know I said I'd try to be better with posting but, what can I say? I'm busy planning and working! Starting to feel better about the wedding plans though now. Thank you to those who left such kind words on my previous post!

As for the title of this post: I am in search of (ISO) someone who has extra Papertrey Ink Bitty Blessings designer paper seen here who would consider selling or trading it. Please email me if you are!

Wedding Stresses

It has finally hit me how much stuff I have to do before we leave for our wedding. I am getting so stressed as the date is drawing closer. It doesn't help that we are planning a wedding and party in other places from where we live. Grant and I are getting married in the Dominican in early May with just our siblings (and their partners) and parents present. When we return, we are having a celebration with our extended family and our friends.

Here's what I have been really busy with lately, and therefore not stamping! This has taken over my stamping space. I love the way these invitations and RSVPs have turned out. No surprise that they use all SU supplies! I had actually planned on using a Martha Stewart designer paper (despite not being convinced about it) because Grant really liked it but then my sister told me she didn't like the paper - which confirmed my idea of changing it! I'm glad she told me despite our Mom telling her not to. Plus, once I changed it, Grant liked it better too!

This is a close up picture of the invitations. The pictures don't really show the colours well but the brown is SU chocolate chip and the green is SU certainly celery. You also can't tell from the photos but the type is actually printed in those colours as well using Marni's RGB values.

Now the only bad thing is I actually have to make a couple more. I thought I had enough but there were a couple of last minute additions to the invitation list by Grant's Mom.

New Papertrey Ink Goodies

I've finally got my hands on some Papertrey Ink stamps! My family bought me some of my favourite sets from PTI for Christmas that I have been wanting for a long time but have been too cheap to buy them because of the cost of shipping to Canada!

This 4.25" square card uses the gorgeous set "Remember." There are so many different flower shapes and sentiments in this set. I love it. I kept this card very simple so that the poppy and its details really stand out. I love the way this turned out.


Stamps: PTI Remember
Ink: SU riding hood red, basic black
Paper: SU riding hood red, basic black, ww
Ribbon: Spool O'ribbon
Punch: SU Corner rounder

OCCC Mojo69 Dream Preview

It's been a long time since I last posted due to a combination of being busy with other things and a lack of creativity. It's starting to come back though so we'll see if I can get to posting a little more regularly again.

This is a card I created for a couple of challenges. The sketch is from Mojo Monday 69 and the colours are from Our Creative Corner colour challenge to use two or more shades of blue and a neutral.

This is a new stamp set from Stampin' Up! that will be a hostess set in the new catalogue coming out later this month.


Stamps: SU Dream a Little
Ink: SU bashful blue, not quite navy
Paper: SU bashful blue, not quite navy, ww, maine blueberry
