Enjoying Life at Convention!!!

WoW!  What an awesome time!

I was unable to take my laptop this year, as it is my daughter’s connection with Daddy overseas and I wanted them to be able to chat via webcam.  That being said-they didn’t even use it while I was gone. . .Which makes me *really* wish I had taken it to share everything with you all!

Anyhoo, I wanted to share a project I made before I left.  This is the notebook I made for my downline, Jen.

I wanted us to have matching ones, so I picked up two.  I want to say it was at Meijer?  I have been really trying to remember where I picked these up, as everyone who photographed this at convention wanted to know! 

It has been a while since I bought it so I think my brain let that go as Useless Information :)

What I do know is it said “Pink and Black” on the cover before I covered it.  Hope that helps!

Okay, People.  This stamp is seriously gorgeous!!!

The new Stampin’ Up! Medallion stamp is inked in Pink Passion classic ink, then sponged around the edges and in the center with Basic Black Classic ink to get that purple gradation.   Who Knew??

Also new:  5/8in black grograin

Black goes with everything!

I am not sure how clear it is in this photo, but there’s Dazzling Diamonds (applied with a 2-way glue pen) on select points of the medallion.  The entire white panel is then laminated with a self adhesive document laminating sheet. 

Stamps: Medallion, Enjoy Every Moment; Ink: Pink Passion, Basic Black, Black Stazon; Paper:Whisper White, Basic Black; Other Stuff:  5/8 black grograin, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 way glue pen, sponge, laminating sheet, Stamp-a-majig

Hope you like!  I will be sharing some high points of my Convention Adventure in the next several posts, as well as some of my projects made for various swaps.
