Today is a special day - I received my badge and pass for Stampin' Up's Onstage Live Event in the post today and I am SOOO excited; only 8 more sleeps to go! I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with some of my teamies, getting a sneak peek at lots of new SU! product and attending my first Centre Stage Live.
Today's card is another on the theme of thankfulness, but with something of a twist! I was documenting some Project Life at the weekend and decided to use one of my cards from the 2015 Project Life Seasonal Snapshot kit to make a card. This is something I do rarely, as I usually want to use everything in my PL documenting, but decided it was a good idea so that you can see the sheer versatility of the Project Life product range. So here is my card:
I'd like to say this card took me ages, but that would be so untrue! It uses a PL card for the cardfront, with one of the wooden embellishments from the Seasonal Snapshot accessory kit adhered to the front with glue dots, and the words and letters and little leaves are all self-adhesive elements from the accessory pack that I adhered directly to my base, popping the 'thankful' up on a couple of dimensionals for a little lift. I added a black candy dot and some SAB Tangelo Twist thick baker's twine from my stash and my card was complete! So easy and yet so effective - I love the rich colours of the plaid and the negative space leaf really draws you in. The leaf itself made it into my Project Life folder with my photos - bonus! Project Life sets are great for cardmakers too - if you can bear to part with them of course!
It's remix week over at TGIF Challenges so I decided to use their theme - thankful - and sketch for my card, which I am also linking up to SUO Challenges as it fits with their theme too and the inspiration over at Curtain Call where my background looks just like their rug!
I am thankful for many things, but today I am mostly thankful that the carbon monoxide detector that set off its alarm this morning is nothing serious and that our relatively new gas boiler has not sprung an unexplained leak. The National Grid engineer that came out on the emergency call determined it was simply a blip - at least we know the alarm is working!
I'm off to get some jobs done before heading out on the school run and then to take one of my little pianists for a piano exam - wish Rebecca luck! Back tomorrow with another project - Christmas this time! Until then, happy stampin'!
