What was I thinking?

23 Sep

I had some very important things to share and forgot to yesterday!!

Guess what?  I have WINNERS!!  WINNERS to announce!!

Well 1 winner..

Donna Woods…COME ON DOWN…(in my best Bob Barker voice)

Donna is the winner of my prize package for the Paper Issues Blog hop.

She has won a sampler pack(put together by me) of Authentique Paper.

Donna…believe it or NOT..I have your address….

PS..I will send you Pennies for the Ferry Man too!

Plus your special order card:)

Ok…also I need to give a HUGE thank you to CANVAS CORP.

I have been making some fun things with their products.

They have the most UNBELIEVABLE variety of things.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be posting things as I get them done!

Here is my first card I have made with their Black & Kraft Papers.

This card is yet another Shelf Card.

Do you remember my 1st one?

You can see it HERE.

When I first attempted this pattern, I was using a normal grade of card stock (not Canvas Corp).  I have to say, I had a terrible time assembling the 1st card, because of the lack of durability of the OTHER card stock I was using. Also the pattern was messed up.  I sent it over to my friend Christina of CG SAYS, and she tweeked it…but I will have to let her know what else needs to be fixed…we are ALMOST THERE with this pattern!

When making this card, I had no problem what so ever.

 I used Canvas Corp Black & Kraft Gourmet Sampler, Bon Appetit Reverse and Ribbon Stripe.  The Black & Craft paper is very sturdy and perfect to make 3-d types cards with.

I wanted to create a card that went along with the theme of the paper, so I embellished it with kitchen cut-outs.  The phrase says “We knead some mix thoroughly time soon.”

This is perfect for me to give to my hubby because with 7 kids, there is not much time for the 2 of us.

I have to tell you about the other items I used to make this too.

I think I would be lost without all my AUTHENTIQUE PAPER  PETITE TYPEs.

They are always the perfect finishing touch on so many of my creations.

All the paper cut outs come from the Cricut Cartridge called FROM MY KITCHEN, a fun, fun cartridge!

My finishing touch is the sticker of the babies in front.  Isn’t that the perfect touch.  I have a lot of these stickers by Jone Bergquist Hallmark.

I hoard them an only use them on the very special projects of mine, since I am pretty sure they are out of print.

Focusing back on CANVAS CORP, I have to say their papers, (I like to think) were designed with me in mind.

They have (HANDS DOWN) the best black and white polka dot paper in the WORLD…I will never regret saying that!

Here is an older card I made and can you believe how that polka dot paper just pops out at you and totally MAKES this card?

How do you like the cherry die cuts?

I picked up that die at a thrift store for $.25.  What a steal!

I will be back in the next couple of days with more things.  Be sure to stop by on Sunday August 25, 2011, for my tutorial with Authentique Paper.

My plan for that post is to leave you speechless…tell what you think after I post!

For now…have a great weekend!
