Paper Craft Crew 91 & Pics

I will not lie to you I was tired yesterday! Apparently four hours of sleep isn’t enough for me! I usually am good with four and a half but four just doesn’t work! LOL! I did manage to get a lot accomplished at work and I got to have dinner with my parents now that they are back from London. I’ll admit that I missed them! Mum did bring me back loads of candy and chocolate, I see a diet in my future in a couple of weeks! Did you all like the picture from yesterday of the Catalog cover? You got to see some of the neat new products that they have. I did get to meet some people while I was at the Catalog Premiere. I have two pictures from it that Crystal “Super Stamp Girl” was nice enough to send me. The first one is of her, Sandy and I and the second one is of Laurie, Sandy and I. Yes, I’m a complete geek, that is my Satellite Lane A Cappella t-shirt!

I love when I get to meet the people that I talk to on my blog! Thanks for sending the pictures Crystal!

Speaking of Satellite Lane, I’m off to Manhattan tonight to have some dinner with my friend Kim and then after we are going to head downtown to see them perform at Tammany Hall. Hopefully I’ll get some pictures, it’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Not the best weather but it will be a good time anyway!

It’s Wednesday so that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCS091 Sketch 4-30-2014

As soon as I saw the speech bubble I knew that I needed the Word Bubbles Digital Download! The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. I used my E-Cutter and the Word Bubbles Digital Download to cut out a piece of Bermuda Bay with the Hello cut out from the inside too. Before I adhered it to the card I put another small piece of the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper behind it and the used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up over it. The arrows are from the Label Card Thinlits, I modified them slightly by removing the tails with my Paper Snips. I cut the three triangles from the same DSP with my Paper Snips and adhered all of the pieces with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Yes, there is no stamping on the card at all! That doesn’t happen very often but the E-Cutter and MDS Digital Downloads make cutting out stuff so much fun sometimes you don’t need to stamp! I really hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch! Go and visit the blog and see what my teammates have done with the sketch and have a try yourself! Thank you so much for coming by to see what I’ve been up to. I hope that you all have a great Wednesday! 🙂

    1. Indeed Lisa. The bad thing was that around 10:00pm last night I got what I guess was a fourth wind! LOL! Thank you! Love meeting my blog peeps! Thanks, I will enjoy group, I always do! 🙂

  4. Good Morning Justin:

    One of the places in Manhattan that I’ve wanted to go to but haven’t made it there is Tammany Hall. From what I understand the place has quite a history. Where in Manhattan is it located?

    Super Duper fun card today. Again, Kaleidoscope is my favorite DSP ever and I think it’s because I love bright colors and no one can say this DSP doesn’t have enough of that! LOL What great fun those little arrows are. Nice job for sure.

    Thanks for sharing the photos from reveal. It’s nice to put some faces with names we see so often. You have yourself a wonderful hump day and enjoy the show tonight.

    1. Hello Grace!
      Really?!?! I’ll be sure and let you know all about it tomorrow! It’s downtown on Orchard Street. We are going to eat at a place called Kuma Inn. I’ll let you know how that is too!
      I do love the Kaleidoscope DSP and will miss all of the fun colors. I’m sure I will find a new fave soon enough! Thank you!!
      I love sharing my pics with you! I think it’s great to get to meet my blog peeps!
      Satellite Lane is always good so it will be fun! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

  5. Love you card. Amazing what you can do with MDS and an E-Cutter!!
    Great pics of the Reveal….. ours is finally tonight. So the cover won’t be a surprise (LOL) and not much of the contents either but I am so excited to be part of that great event. Can’t wait to have it in my hands…. so I am sure I too will be tired tomorrow (after the long drive to and from, then half of the night looking at the catty….). Enjoy your show tonight too.

    1. Thank you Louise! Yes, I do love my E-Cutter! I am looking forward to what you think of the Reveal. I think that you will still have a great time! Yes, have a safe ride! I too looked at the Catalog for too long! Don’t worry, you can always do without sleep! LOL! Thank you! 🙂

  6. Good Evening Justin!!

    As I am typing, I hope you are enjoying dinner with friends, Andrew and Satellite Lane with friends, or both, LOL!!! 😉

    Thank you for sharing your spotlight with lil’ ol’ me!!! It was an honor to meet you and Sandy!! You both are gracious and lovely. What a fun event, and the excitement is clearly contagious!!! PLEASE continue to inspire us with your innovative creativity!!!
    Hugs, Laurie

    1. Hello Laurie!

      I did have a very nice, if not very wet, time last night! Dinner was delicious and Satellite Lane was awesome! 🙂
