My Mind’s Eye | Thanks

 

mmethanks46

Terri Davenport is here today to bring us the final installment of our My Mind’s Eye feature week highlighting their new CHA Winter 2013 collections! Today, we are highlighting the Boy Crazy collection once again in this fun “thank you” card.

Balloons are trendy, and this one makes a great makeshift banner to carry our card’s sentiment on. The blue literally pops off the card and highlights the gracious message!

To balance the visual weight of the chipboard piece, Terri layered twill and baker’s twine at the bottom for an interesting piece of texture. It also covers the seam between the two patterned papers to keep it from looking awkward.

Supplies |  Cardstock: Core’dinations. Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” (Point the Way). Chipboard: My Mind’s Eye (Boy Crazy). Alphabet Stickers: Simple Stories. Twill: Stampin’ Up!. Baker’s Twine: unknown.

Christmas Is In Your Heart

I made a few single-layer cards in 2011 to send to my husband because of the rules where he was housed then. Creating single layer cards is a special art, because it requires layering techniques with color mediums. You have to gauge things like how translucent different colors and different mediums will be when layered.

Events | 2012 Stampin’ Up! Convention

Editor’s Note: The annual Stampin’ Up! convention is one of the largest events of its kind in the industry, but since it is a private event, little is usually heard about it in the mainstream scrapbook media. This year, freelance writer Connie Myers was invited to attend by Stampin’ Up!, and she offered to share her experience with Scrapbook Update’s readers. Her report below provides a fascinating window into the company culture that has created the success of Stampin’ Up! as an organization, as well as an informative look at the company’s latest new products and marketing focus. — Nancy
