What better way to celebrate Easter than with spring time daffodils and Gingham Gala paper? Ok, let's face it. NOTHING is better than Gingham Gala paper - period! And look, stamping on it is just as awesome! It's just so versatile and it makes me happy, happy, happy!
This week, I'm busy putting the finishing touches on my OnStage presentation. I've found out that I'm the last demo presenting, which means, I have ALL day to watch amazing presentations - and hope that mine is good enough! LOL I think I'll start practicing in front of the dogs tonight. They're pretty much a captive audience, but the don't provide much constructive criticism.

I love paper. Let me correct that. I love pretty paper! That's actually how I got involved with Stampin' Up! So, as I was shopping for some organizational supplies for my studio on Sunday, this lovely journal caught my eye and before I knew it, it had jumped right into my cart and followed me home.
Once home, I was inspired to craft a card based on my journal. Then, I had a brilliant idea...let's ALL craft a card based on my new journal. I'd love to see what YOU create based on the colors and pattern found in my journal. Simply post a photo of your creation below, or on my Facebook Group Page. I promise to spend the week trying this pattern, too.
And now for the contest...post a photo of your creation and one lucky winner will be chose to receive a free pack of Leaves Trinkets. You must post a photo on or before Sunday, April 14. One winner will be selected on Monday, 4/15.

Last week, I issued a color challenge to my Stamping Bee Team - create any card you'd like, using the the above color scheme. I've had some new member join during Sale-a-Bration and I wanted to have some fun and welcome them to a team challenge. I like color challenges because the sky is the limit as far as design. I found this picture of peonies thought these colors were perfect for early February and Valentine's day.
They key to color challenge is to use the color judiciously. Too many colors can be distracting and take away from the image or sentiment. I prefer choosing one to two colors, at most, and tying it together with a neutral. I decided to go with the softest Powder Pink and headed right to my Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. But then, I couldn't decide which pink pattern to use, so I used both: flowers and spots! If giraffes could have pink spots, I know this would be it!
Would you like to play along? The color challenge ends on Valentine's Day. Simply use any of the above colors, along with a neutral or foils, and post it to my Facebook Page! We'd love to see what you create with these colors!
