I finally made it back to my craft table...

Good afternoon fellow bloggers. Oh how I have missed you!!

I know it has been almost two months since I posted, but I have been really busy with a AWESOME vacation, company when I got home, then more travel. It has been crazy.

I went on vacation in Maui, Hawaii. It was amazing. I want to go back to live. I fell in love with that island. It was great. You will soon see some pages for my new Hawaii scrapbook.

Today I want to share some cards I made for my mom. While I was in Hawaii we went to a great scrapbook store called Island Paperie. In the store they had tons of cards made with Dreamweaver Stencils and Dreamweaver embossing pastes. It looks so cool, that we got a book, one of each color of paste, and a few new stencils. I already had some stencils at home, so I was ready to go. We shipped all of our wonderful finds back to the mainland and when it got here, I was in the middle of trying to get back into reality and had company. To make a long story short, TODAY, I finally came down stares and got busy.

Here are the projects that I made...

This Thank You card is made with products that we purchased at Island Paperie.
Stencil: Mahalo (Dreamweaver), Embossing Paste: Metallic Copper (Dreamweaver), Stamps: Island Paperie (Plumaria), Cardstock: Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up), Ribbon: Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)

The awesome Paper Lace Ribbon tutorial I saw here. Super fun!!!

My next card is also made with some products that I got at Island Paperie.
Stencils: Plumaria & Aloha (Dreamweaver), Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Certainly Celery and So Saffron (Stampin' Up), Embossing Paste: Pearl White (Dreamweaver), Glitter: Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up), Stamps: Baroque Motifs (Stampin' Up).

Using this new stenciling technique is soo fun. I hate that I let these products sit so long. I will probably won't stop until I have used all my stencils at least once.

Thanks for taking a peek today. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
