Some of you may remember the Flood of 2013 but for those of you who don’t you can read about it HERE. I’m excited to report that almost six months later the restoration is complete! Carpet is scheduled to be installed today and I’m spending the weekend moving back in to my craft studio! I should probably put quotes around “studio” because the area shares the space with another one of our living areas but I’ve claimed it as mine and that’s where my classes are held. My awesome hubby did such a great job spending every available evening and weekend putting it all back together again! You all, he even put in a bathroom where there was no bathroom before!
Here are some “Before” pictures and I’ll share some “After” pictures next week.
To stay with the theme of my fresh, new space I created a card using the papers from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Secret Garden Stamp Set with coordinating Framelits, two of my favorites that are on the Retiring Products List (see stamps here and accessories here). To give the flowers more depth I “curled” them with my bone folder then attached them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Fresh Prints papers are so lovely and coordinate with some of my favorite colors; Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Crumb Cake. I wanted to put a strip of Natural Chevron Ribbon on the card but didn’t have any on hand so I made my own patterned “ribbon” by using a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set along with Whisper White ink on a strip of Crumb Cake card stock.
I hope you enjoy the card and have an awesome weekend!
