Paper Craft Crew 214

Sometimes a day away from the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store is actually more work than being there! LOL! I had somewhat forgotten that I have my first solo post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog today so yesterday morning I made a card and typed my post for that. (If you want see that post you click HERE, it goes live at 11:00am!) Around 11:30 I went over and picked up Taylor and took her to the Dentist for her 12:15 appointment. At 1:05, still sitting there in the waiting room I started to get a little miffed! I had to be on a 1:44 train so my Parent’s came over and waited for her to finish. My Mum text me and told me that she was hysterical laughing when she came out from the anesthesia, I’m sorry that I missed that! I did make my train and relaxed and listened to my music all the way in. I went in a little early so that I could get a late lunch. I found a Chop’t in my travels and had a lovely salad and my favorite Pelligrino Lemon! From there I went over to see my friend Ella. She made me two Illy Lungos and we chatted for a while. Around 6:30 I headed back to Penn and got the 7:11 home. The train was packed but I had my headphones on and was in my own little world! I had a corn muffin (good thing I had the salad!) for dinner and then watched a little TV. Today I have to get ready for the Haunted House class, Sue is going to come and help me! She is so good!

Mid week and I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…


This time the challenge will run for two weeks! Yay! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the brushstrokes from the Hero Arts Vintage Post Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Pool Ink. Across that, a little tilted, is a piece of Carta Bella Winter Fun Paper. I curled up the edges just a little for some added interest. My ornament is cut out with the die from the Hero Arts Winter Cheer Tag Set by Lia from a piece of Silver Glitter Paper. I also cut out a piece of Solar White 110lb and adhered it to the silver with Multi-Purpose Adhesive. The tag is then adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. Both of the greetings are from the same set. The winter wishes is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold onto a piece of 48lb Vellum and I used my Scissors to cut out. Some Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape adheres it to the ornament. My season’s greetings is also heat embossed in Gold onto more Solar White 110lb, I flagged both ends and adhered it with more 3D Foam Squares. Here come the sequins! LOL! I added some Cornflower, Silver, Gold and Sparkling Clear ones with Multi-Matte Medium and the card is finished! I really do love that tag cut from the Silver and the gold greetings, especially the fussy cut one, are so cool! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

  1. Your fussy cutting is amazing, Justin!! I love the card with the silver and gold, the soft pool background with the DSP, plus all the beautiful sequins. Just L.O.V.E it. Your mum was so nice to stay with Taylor at the dentist, so you could make the train to the city. Even on your days off, you accomplish so much. I think I need some lessons in time management from you! Hope today is a good one for you. Hugs.

    1. Thank you very much HJ! I love blues for the Holidays! I have the best parents! I don’t think I know what a day off is anymore! LOL! I need some lessons in doing nothing! Yesterday was fun and busy! Hope that you had a nice day! 🙂

  2. OMG you are so funny. You really didn’t think Taylor would be done in 30 minutes did you? Come on, really! None of my kids were goofy from the anesthesia, Although my son was tripping from all the Valium he received to calm him down,

    this card is awesome, such a wintery feel.

    I’m so excited, I won a $75.00 gift card from My Favorite Things…. this weekend i will be shopping! Take care

    1. No, but I hate sotting somewhere for an hour for no reason! Make the appointment for 12:15, see me at 12:15!! She had a much different reaction last time, the exact opposite!
      Thank you! Yes, very wintry, not ready for it yet!
      That is awesome Linda! Congrats! Have fun shopping! 🙂
