Hi there! I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, a college English professor, a mom to Annabelle (11) and Henry (8), and a wife to Eric (um . . .). I craft for fun and sanity. I am so glad you came to see my playful designs using ink and fibers. If you like what you see, please follow me online or come to my classes in Springfield, IL!
I held my Christmas Club on Sunday. It was so much fun, I'm thinking of doing it again this weekend to accommodate all the folks who couldn't come last Sunday. As we were stamping, one of my friends made a "mistake," so I gave her a fresh piece of cardstock and took her "ruined" piece. Here is what the card was supposed to look like:
When she was stamping her background trees, the stamp was over-inked , so it whiskered on the right upper corner. I decided to rip that corner off and layer a piece of retired Christmas paper underneath and then echo that technique under the sentiment. I am not so sure I don't like the "ruined" one better!
