I had a very exciting weekend!! Margaret from Sparkle N Sprinkle asked if my friend and fellow designer, April, and I could join her at the Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA. I used to help a lot of vendors at various conventions but it has been awhile. I had forgotten how much fun it is to see the excitement of the customers when you share the different products and what they can do. It was a lot of fun and extremely busy.
I also forgot how much work it was and how your body aches from head to toe. It was a joy to arrive at the hotel and throw my poor body into bed. The weekend flew by and before we knew it we were headed home. I have to apologize to April, who was driving, for falling asleep on the way back. I really tried not to but the radio was playing soft jazz and her car rides sooo smooth that I just couldn’t help it. Guess next time I will be driving (maybe not the safest idea).
Ok, I do have a fun project for you today. I recently saw an adorable Box Card and found the instructions for the Box Card base at Splitcoast Stampers. I decided to try one, using our new Zendoodle Tea Set.
I used the Vine Tea Cup and Tea Cup Handle, embossed with Black Detail EmbossingPowder and colored with markers and a Dove Blender. It is layered on a Spellbinders’ Oval Die and a floral oval die embossed with Poolside Embossing Powder.
When you open this card it reveals a small box. I added a doily die cut and created a pocket with layered label dies stamped with the Tea Quote so you can tuck in a tea bag.
Head on over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for more information on this great little card design. Don’t forget to come back later this week for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas In July Blog Hop on July 12-13.
