Creating, Once Again. . .

Seems far too long 
since I've been motivated to do some designs 
in my creative space, Studio One. 



This past week,
with all the Christmas decor packed neatly away, 
my thoughts turned to creating, once again!



I began with my 2" Wood Stamper from JUSTRITE 
and the You're So Sweet Set with interchangeable centers and borders.

This particular set has six borders and centers to choose from.

I chose. . . 




Thanks


Thank You

and. . .


Thank You So Much.

I've had the blank creamy ivory note cards for several years.
The are K Company and were purchased for $1.99 at TJ Maxx.


I chose acid free, vintage inspired, pastel scrapbooking paper scraps
from my collections in monochromatic coordinating prints. 


The satin and velvet ribbons are from my supplies~on~hand.


My decorative edged scissors 
were used to cut out the stamped design and give a Victorian touch.


Then,
I did some styling touches using a wooden pedestal and some wooden risers.


Finally,
I placed them into a galvanized mail sorter until needed.






 One of my goals in 2016 is to utilize Studio One, 
my creative space, on a regular basis.


On Crooked Creektt,
it appears I'm off to an amazing start,
creating, once again.





Until next time. . .

Great project Pat and yours all turned out so cute! I've never made cards or anything like this. I always admire those who do. Do you know Donna from Donna's Designs (donnaheber.com)? She's another blogger I know that makes creative stationery things like this. I lack patience so I never tried. :-/

Hi, Pat! Oh, your cards are so beautiful and love your designs. Anyone who receives these will be honored that you took the time to make a card yourself. I used to make all my cards years ago and maybe when I can walk up the stairs to my sewing/craft room, I just may make some more!
Thanks always for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
