Sudsol Blog Tour! Sign up for my blog candy too...

Today was the only day for the Sudsol Blog Tour,and featured an all-holidays theme! 
I created these 3 projects just for the Sudsol blog tour to share

My first project can be used for New Year's Day - you know that day when you make a new resolution and hope you can stick with it!  This card is to help inspire and motivate you when the going gets tough...It features lace and ribbon weaving - remember when you did potholder weaving in Scouts, or paper weaving in school? 


Supplies I used: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted) Soft suede cardstock, sahara sand cardstock, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, chocolate chip ink, marina mist ink, pearl, dimensionals, glue dots, chocolate chip write marker, very vanilla 5/8” satin ribbon, Chantilly and Victoria crochet trims, marina mist 1/8” taffeta ribbon, Sense of Time stamp set, needle & clear & brown thread/sewing machine, Elegant Soiree designer paper, Boho blossom xlarge punch, scallop edge border punch, light blue tulle (non-Stampin’ Up).

Why am I a SUDSOL member?? There is an endless supply of advice, help, sharing, and inspiration from other SU demonstrators - you can get any questions you have answered within 24 hours – not to mention tons of projects, tips, patterns, and class/workshop plans. Here you don’t feel like you are just another person paying for a membership, rather you will “meet” and make new SU friends. The absolute best site for SU demonstrators who want to take their designing and creativity to the next level!! Check out the FREE Two Week Trial - Click here!

My next project is what I call a Fussy Flower card! When I was making the flower, I fussed and fidgeted with it to get it just right lol. But I think the messier it is, the better it looks....This is a nice card for Mother's Day - after all, mothers are a blessing, right?!   Even if they fuss and fidget with you...not me!?!

Supplies I used: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted) Whisper white cardstock, chocolate chip cardstock, old olive cardstock, Build A Bear Workshop Pawsitively Prints DSP, Play date DSP, petals a plenty embossing folder, filigree brad, pear pizzaz glimmer brad, striped grosgrain ribbon, needle & thread, God’s Blessing stamp set, dimensionals, glue dots, dotted scallop border punch, oval punch (flower cased from Deb Horst).

     Why you should sign up with Sudsol??  I did the free 2-week trial and was so impressed with how valuable everything on the site was. I knew that I could never take it all in in just 2 weeks so I signed up – it is worth every penny and more. You will get a wealth of new ideas every single day and learn so much! The Creative Library has project pictures, patterns, and instructions – it is better than surfing the web with all the ideas available to you in Sudsol! All in one spot – a one-stop site for SU demonstrators…be prepared to lose track of time on this site!!

My third project is a Christmas card - with a Perky Posy. I love this paper and the colors, so cheerful. 

Supplies I used: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted) Cherry cobbler cardstock, real red cardstock, 5/8” real red satin ribbon, whisper white cardstock, Candy Cane Christmas DSP, Chantilly crochet trim, needle & thread, red glimmer brad, Short & Sweet stamp set, cherry cobbler inkpad, baja breeze inkpad, dimensionals, glue dots, scallop trim corner punch.

Don't forget the 2-week trial with Sudsol is FREE - I would love for you to join me on SUDSOL and check out my gallery there - Your 24/7 Upline!
