I am having my first give away today! But first, my project….cuz it's all about me you know. ME, ME, ME. I joined a card exchange hosted on the blog Brooklyn Bride. Why was I on a bridal website? No idea… I must have clicked over to it for a project or something from another website or an email. It is a great blog with lots of great ideas... and one card swap. This was my first card swap.. Hard to believe since I have been making cards since before there was a stamping industry. I made cards in the early 1990's using a candle flame or stove burner to melt the embossing powder. Imagine the sheer number of cards I burned….. Cuz you know I am not careful with things like that. Impatient? Yes….Careful? No.
I am happy with the way the cards turned out. Since I only had to make 5 cards I didn't mind a labor intensive design. My muse was a luminary that I saw in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living using the Martha Stewart "Star" Anywhere Punches. Immediately I had the idea to do a dark background with the stars punched out and a silver, glittered paper behind so the stars appeared as silver glitter. I intended to use foam tape or a pop dot between the two layers to add depth but in the end i didn't like the look and laid the black card stock directly onto the silver glitter paper.
On to the SWAG. I have a Give Away from the online scrapbooking company Stop and Scrap. I LOVE the company and have proven my love by shopping there quite a bit this year….shut up Rick!… as I was saying, I have shopped there quite a bit this year because their prices are fantastic. Stop and Scrap is a 4 year-old company that specializes in selling brand new scrapbook lines as they are released. They are the place to go to get the latest in the industry. I know from being a customer that this year they have seen tremendous growth and they recently expanded both the business and the family with new partners and a new baby. Stop and Scrap offers a tremendous amount of pre-orders ensuring you get the hottest products before they sell out. For crafters like me who live in a town with no local scrapbook stores, having a resource like Stop and Scrap has been very valuable.
