Yep, the title says it all. Today is a good day. Well, maybe great in fact. Today I was featured in the Stampin’ Up! magazine that is given to all it’s demonstrators each month called Stampin’ Success. It is a HUGE honour to be asked to participate and I was humbled. It was such fun working with the Twick or Tweet stamp set in the current Holiday Mini catalogue and here is the article for your enjoyment:
In recognition of this publishing, I thought I’d share with you the little gift I made for the lovely author of the article, Kim Jackson of Stampin’ Up!
Keep in mind, these photos were taken some time ago and maybe aren’t that great but hopefully you’ll be able to see what I’ve done here. Kim had recently taken a trip so I thought it’d be fun to bring along a little trip memory book for her when I attended Convention in August. Above is the front. I used Pink Flamingo DSP. You can kind of see that it is a tri-fold of sorts. So, when you open the front cover you get….
The next inside cover design and then the whole thing open looks like…
On the far left, she’s got a pocket to slide in a CD of photos or music. The centre is a bunch of clear envelopes for photos and the far right (which is very hard to see) is for journalling. At the top it reads “the story of….” I used the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set as it coordinates so well with this designer paper. I added a heavy weight cardboard to the middle panel so this could be placed on a coffee table or desk opened up like a tri-fold photo album. It was actually super easy to make and I’m just thrilled with it!
Thanks for stopping in today!
