Bright Ideas Class

Can't believe it's been a week since I've updated! But, I have been busy. I signed up for Studio Calico's class, Bright Ideas and have been having a blast with all of the challenges. This week, I was able to complete several of them.

This first card was for the create something using maps challenges. I LOVE maps. I decided to make a simple Valentine's card using Crate Paper Fourteen. I used a chipboard and die cut heart and added book paper cut out hearts to them. I topped them with some Webster's gems.

I added some stitching and an Ali Edwards's stamp to finish it off.

My next page was for the 'Stitched Title' challenge. The page is about my Christmas cactus. I've had it for over 15 years. This year it didn't bloom in December. I was thinking it might be dying or something, but lo and behold, it was a month behind. In January I had some beautiful blooms!

I used some Studio Calico, Jenni Bowlin and Basic Grey papers on here. The title is the negative space from a Silhouette cut. I stitched around it for some fun texture.

That's all for today. I'm off to work on some more challenges. Thanks so much for stopping by!
