CHA Bound!! Woot!


I'm so excited to share my projects with you these next three days. I'm going to CHA with Michelle (Stamper's Dream) and Laurie (Lauraly), and I can hardly contain myself. We can't wait to see and purchase new product for the Stamper's Dream Store!

Well, when visiting so many different vendors, it's hard to remember each detail of each company, so I altered a binder (Maya Road) for each of us.

This is the first of the three. I used the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper III Ensemble (JustRite) for this one. I loved the sentiment and the charming butterfly. This set comes with a 3 1/4" Circle Stamper, to be used with 6 Designer Borders and 6 Designer Centers. Talk about flexibility! They're so easy to use, and so versatile! If you haven't checked out the JustRite blog, you should, they have some fabulous product debuting at CHA, and Michelle will be carrying it in her store!! I'm a HUGE JustRite fan, so I can't wait for the new product!! Woot!! The *2009* and *Notes* sentiments were createad with JustRite's Brayton and Trompe Script Fonts, and their Harmony Rectangle Stamper.

The swirls behind the sentiment medallion are from Doodlebug. They're sticky on both sides, so all you do, is peel them off of their base, stick them on the surface you want to decorate, sprinkle them with glitter, and rub the glitter in. Woila...how easy is that. The warm and yummy brown glitter that I used is called BonBon Sugar Coating. (Doodlebug) This glitter by Doodlebug is fine and the colors are fabulous!! LOVE this stuff.

Finally, I have to show you what I did with the bindings on the side. I wanted to cover the back and side, but the silver bindings would be hard to cover with cardstock. So, I just took my CarlCraft flower punch, punched out the flower over where the silver studs would be, and woila, it looks like a flower center. I LOVE the look.

All the edges are ink distressed with Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink)


Supplies:
Stamps - Harmony Classic Circle Stamper III, Harmony Rectangle Stamper, Brayton and Trompe Script Complete Fonts (JustRite)
Paper - Upsy Daisy, Suede Brown Dark (Prismatics), Neenah Solar White
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Nestabilties, Doodlebug Swirls, Doodlebug Sugarcoating Glitter, Martha Stewart Border Punch, CarlCraft Flower punch, Copics, Dimensional tape
