From Kyle and Jared's Party

Just a couple of snaps from Kyle and Jared's party -- my two nephews who graduated from high school and college this year.  I didn't get any pics of the cupcake wrappers or the cakes, Beth...send me some to post.

Working on red, white, and blue and Father's Day today.  I love that new set from SVGCUTS.COM with the Bo Bunny Liberty paper.  It is almost too cute to work with!

RE: Robot Birthday card

This is a birthday card Lane made for Nathaniel.  They've got this robot thing going???  But, it is a cute stamp.  I believe it is SC, once again.  The punch is Stampin' Up.

RE: Another sketch challenge

Another sketch challenge by Lane.  First tribute to Gallery Bakery!  Again, all papers and embellishments are from the Studio Calico 2/11 kit. 

Found out from trying to photograph this latest bunch of pics -- request matte finish on your photos if you plan to post them.  The glossy finish reflects the flash, as you can see.  If you are printing your own pics, I found matte finish photo paper at Staples in three different sizes.

RE: layout fun

Hey, Scrappers,

Hope to see you tonight at the meeting.  Here are a few pics of some fun with a sketch challenge that Lane participated in last week.  Papers and embellishments are from the 2/11 Studio Calico kit.  I believe that there is a lot of Sassafras Lass in there.  KITTEHSMILE.

Look at Mary and Leo's collection
How impressive!  Makes me wish I would have kept more of my stuff.

P.S.  You know they don't actually WORK in that room!  ;)

RE: Bad penny

After a long quiet spell, I've turned back up like a bad penny.  I'm trying to re-organize, regroup and go a little bit different way.   More on that later...

I did purchase a new camera and accessories last month to try to get better photos what we are working on.  A blog is not as much fun without decent pictures! This is my first attempt to publish from my new camera...I have a bit of a way to go!  This is just on of Lane's latest with lots of hand cutting and dimension that doesn't really show.  I've got a stack to work on, so I hope to improve with a little practice.

We did order two new toys today  --  the Sew Easy Piercer tool with a few attachments and the Quik Stick by Quick Cuts.   I saw them demonstrated and that was all it took!  I'll let you know the results soon. 

more later, swr
