Craft time

I know its been awhile since I've posted a new project however I have been busy crafting. I borrowed my friend & fellow crafter, Linda's Cricut cartridge Christmas/Noel and have been cutting out Christmas trees, houses, wreaths and more like crazy!  They aren't put together yet - I'm saving that project for evenings when I'm sitting watching TV.  Once I finished that I pulled out 3 cartridges I got last Christmas and haven't done very much with.  I've been cutting snowmen out along with their outfit from the Cricut cartridge Snow Friends.  Those too will get put together some evening.

how do you fix mistakes?

These are the last 2 card designs that we created last Saturday at Kathy's Stamp Camp.  As I mentioned most of the products used were Stampin' Up products.  I love the polar bears but I messed up on both cards when I stamped Celebrate the Season on the front of the "snow" so I've done 2 different fixes on the cards at left - neither of which I like.  How do you fix stamping errors or artwork that doesn't meet your expectations?  In this case on the top cards I'm probably going to try and redo the snow bank completely and reattach the polar bears - not sure if I'll be able to do that without ripping the paper.  The middle card I'll probably leave as is.  The polar bears are made with different size circles for the bodies, an oval for the adult bear's head and circle for the baby bear's head.  The snouts are made by cutting an oval in half (appropriately sized).  The ears were made by 2 different size hole punchs as are the noses.  Eyes & eyebrows were colored by a black pen.

Stamp Camp cards

Here are 2 of the six cards we made this morning at Kathy Atherton's Stamp Camp.  We made 2 of each style.  Three hours flew by in a flash!  Kathy is a Stampin' Up rep so most of the materials used are Stampin' Up products.  I love going to classes because I always learn something new, use color combinations I would not have tried, use tools in new ways and have a lot of fun.  Since this was my first time to Kathy's Stamp Camp I also got to meet a lot of new people!  Kathy's next stamp camp is Fri & Sat Sept 10 & 11.  I'm hoping to go on the 11th.  Wild Wind Folk Art & Craft Show is that weekend but I'll plan to do that on the 12th.  Two more cards tomorrow.

Can't believe how fast the days got away from me!  First, I flew out to Seattle for 5 days visiting my youngest son and his fiancee in Seattle.  My oldest son flew in from California to make it a mini family reunion.  After that I came home and we spent a furious week cleaning the house for their visit this week.  Anyways, I just pulled this info from Sharon Harnists' blog Paper Perfections and wanted to share it with you.
