More projects: "Work of Art "style

I hosted a workshop today so I hustled, last minute style, to make samples. 

This is the array that I made up based on the "Work of Art" stamp set by Stampin' Up!  To accommodate schedules and a late start, we completed the card on the top right.  Who can see my 12:45 am oopsie?  Yes, I determined that was the indicator to go to bed.   I would be thrilled to come do this workshop for you.  Let's schedule a day in September or we can do an online style, virtual party if you are out of town!

Nordic Christmas

I loved this set as soon as I saw it. It reminds me of my dear friend that loves her Scandinavian ancestors' style. So in honor of Elaine I chose Cheerful Christmas for my demonstrator swap card.

I'm still settling on colors and design. But I do truly feel cheerful as I wonder what she would make and remember the fun we have had
when we created together. She introduced me to paper crafting and scrapbooking 18 years ago.  It has been over 10 years since we were crafty together.  We both loved sewing, cake decorating, crochet, paper crafts.  She also made gorgeous quilts and is a talented photographer.

Three hues of green and Cherry Cobbler, so hard to choose!  But I know that I have a lot of great options, I just need to decide.  What are your favorite traditional Christmas colors and your favorite modern colors?

Inspiration Galore

Every year Stampin' Up! selects a new Artisan Design Team.   The Artisan Design Team is a group of very creative and talented Stampin' Up! demonstrator bloggers  who are selected by Stampin' Up! to create, post, and blog about the projects they create.  The 2014 team was introduced at convention in July.  Here is the team and links to their websites.
