Happy Wednesday! Love the halfway point almost as much as I love Friday! LOL! So I don’t know if you are aware of how much of an Apple fan I am but yesterday was like Christmas! Apple announced their new iPhone 6’s, yes two of them! One with a 4.7″ screen and one with a 5.5″ screen. They also announced their new Apple Pay system where you can pay for things with your iPhone, I will be loving that as I hate to carry a wallet! They always have one more thing and this time it was the Apple Watch!! I can’t wait to get that! I have a smart watch now but it’s no where near as smart as the Apple Watch! I also got to “live” text the whole keynote to Andrew while he was in school! I felt like a little tech blogger! LOL! You can pre-order the new phone on Friday, it was a special day already but now, well, it’s even more special! UPS and FedEx are going to busy next week! 🙂
Oh, I forgot to tell you yesterday about the Stampin’ Up! weekly deals so here they are…
I have to admit that the 2″ Circle Punch snuck right by me in the Catalog! There is also a new Photopolymer Stamp Set available called You’re Wonderful. You can see it below or click HERE to download a PDF of the flyer.
It’s Wednesday so that means it’s time for another Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. This is what we have for you this week…
A really fun and different one don’t you think?! The funny thing is that I knew I wanted to use the Confetti Stars Punch, I just wasn’t sure how. My card starts off with a base of Crushed Curry Card Stock. On the lower half of the card I adhered a piece of paper from the Flashback Designer Series Paper Pack. In the center is a piece of Real Red that I punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and the used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom. I adhered a piece of Pool Party 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon around the back before using some Multi-Purpose glue to adhere the red to the base. My flag coming in from the top right is a piece of Basic Gray and on top of that is a piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped the notebook paper from the Tap, Tap, Tap Stamp Set in Pool Party, used the Spiral Border Punch along the left side and then rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder. The typewriter and greeting are from the same set and are heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Smoky Slate. My two stars are from the Be the Star Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Stars Framelits. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of those pieces to the card. A Silver Basic Metal Button is adhered with a Glue Dot to the ribbon to finish off the card. I love the mix of colors and yes, I’m still a little addicted to heat embossing! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Please take a minute to head on over to the blog and check out the other designer projects. Why not make one and upload it to the gallery for us to see?! I appreciate you stopping by to see what I have been up to. I hope that you all have a very happy hump day! 🙂
