Last week as I was engaging in one of my favorite passtimes – blog browsing – I came across THIS gorgeous grouping of projects by Sharon Johnson. Ususally when I do my club projects – each project tends to be very different. When I saw Sharon’s projects, I really liked the idea of a grouping unified by a common color scheme. Since I didn’t have the stamp set she used or enough of the Soft Sky DP, I decided to recreate her “grouping” using Season of Joy, the Dashing DP collection and the Old Olive Prints Designer Series Paper . For the star box, I followed a tutorial on SCS by Diana Crick. Unlike both Diana’s and Sharon’s, my box was only 5?. I wanted to maximize the number of projects I could get out of 1 sheet of 12? x 12? Old Olive cardstock. The card on the left is a Joy-fold card, and the tutorial on how to make it can be found on Beate Johns’ blog. My final card was a little 3? x 3? card. Other tools and accessories used on these projects: Red Grosgrain 5/8?, Whisper White taffeta, hodgepodge hardware, word window punch, scallop punch, 1 1/4? & 1 3/8? circle punches, slot punch, silver brads, red gingham ribbon, silver elastic cord, clear EP, iridescent ice EP. All supplies are Stampin’ Up! of course!
