No Stamps!

I spent most of yesterday and part of today revamping my craft room. One thing I discovered is that I have way too much paper. Even with the blog giveaway of patterned paper a few weeks ago, I do not have space for all of my paper. Thus, when it was time to make a Valentine for a customer, I decided to try and use as much paper as possible! Yes, you heard me -- a customer! The best thing about having a room of my own is that all my tools are in plain sight -- I was able to use my Cricut without hauling it to the dining room. I think I will finally get some use out of this lovely machine, and the Cuttlebug, Xyron, etc. When I asked my husband if he thought my customer (a male) would like this card, he wisely said, "I think his wife will like it, and that's all that matters!" I like the way my hubby thinks!! The only problem -- if my customer doesn't like it, I'm stuck with a card for a couple whose initials are L & D! (I'll let you know if it's available!!) Supplies used: Stampin Up Loves Me Designer Paper, Pretty in Pink, White and Taken with Teal cardstocks; Dimensionals; Cricut: George Cricut Cartridge to make the various sized hearts, the "I Love You" charm, and the "L & D"; Rose grosgrain ribbon from SU; Pink Ricrak ribbon and a teeny Swarvoski crystal from StarlitStudios.

  2. If you get stuck with it you could mail it to your favorite Labor and Delivery floor (That is what I thought of before I read the description) If you ask me where I work I say L&D.

  3. Your card is beautiful Joan. I love the colors, the heart, the papers and of course the Swarovski crystal. :)It's nice to know that I can get them at the Starlit Studio. Have fun with your new craft room.

  4. Very nice card....but where are the pictures of your new scrap room. I am jealous I have a 2 x 4 office that was okay when I started being a SU demo but since has out grown it, my bedroom, my diningroom and now into our livingroom....geez time to sell but I am afraid as soon as I sell a set there will be a card I love and then I will not have the set...anyone else feel that way.

    Keep sharing your creations....

  8. Yaaa! You kept your Cricut. I've been meaning to ask you about that. I'm so glad you got to make a great card with it. I'm sure they will love it!
