But, one of the fun things I like to do when a new Idea Book is released, is to study the new and older stamps and paper packets and see what will work together that perhaps hasn't been demonstrated. I went off and really let my creative juices flow with Pemberely. :o)
I am going to the CTMH Convention this year...yeah! One of the fun things to do are the "swaps." Everyone makes multiples of a project and then trades them with fellow Consultants. It is a great way to get new ideas and have different samples to show off. I wanted to get my swaps started and decided that I would make bookmarks this year. At the 2010 Convention, one of my roomies made bookmarks and I STILL use the one she gave me! Thanks, Tracy. :o) Anyway, I wanted to make something for my fellow Consultants that they could have an use. I studied the paper packets and realized that Pemberely had so many different possibilities. Look closely, it has symmetrical designs, it has a variety of colors, it has flowers...wow...love it! I then studied all the different stamp sets and came up with these three that coordinate beautifully with the paper packet.
I just wanted to ask, I used the new Bitty Opaques Pearls to highlight the centers of the small flowers. I was thinking about using sparkles instead...let me know what you think, :o) For Now, Happy Crafting!
