Virus, same day surgery, road trip oh my!

     This has been quite a month for me.  I will be out of commission for the next week.  My daughter and her 3 kids will be moving this next week and I will be traveling to Ohio to help out.  She will not have the internet for a while so I will be out of commission.  Come back the second week of April when I hope to be able to get back to a regular posting schedule.

Irresistibly Yours inspired by Dawn

     I wanted to make some cards using the Irresistibly Yours DSP and found this card designed by Dawn Griffith.  She has a wonderful blog with a video every day.  Some day I want to be her. 
   If you peak at the top of the card you can see that the flower design has been accented by burnishing the paper with Blushing Bride ink.  Not sure you remember what burnishing is?  Check out this link to a card I posted designed by Robin Armbrecht.
   My monthly club is a technique club and we have been using the Irresistibly Yours designer paper for our techniques these past couple of months.  Check back tomorrow  to see one of the cards we made this month.

Irresistibly Yours scrapbook Layout

  What a month!  First the computer virus, then a minor medical problem, but now I am back!!!!  Sale a Bration is in its last week so I am going to feature some of my favorite items.  First has to be the Irresistibly Yours designer paper. We made a layout in my scrapbook class that featured 4 different ways to use the paper.

1. The leaves were colored using sponge daubers.  I used 5 different colors of green and rubbed them over the DSP blending each new color into the previous color.

2. The Melon Mambo pink flowers were stamped on the polka dot design.  After letting the ink dry a bit, I rubbed the paper with a paper towel and voila, the polka dots appeared the the middle of each flower.

3. I used a Daffodil Delight spritzer I made using rubbing alcohol and reinker and spritzed the flower design in several places.  Then I used the Crisp Cantaloupe reinker to add a bit of that color also to the flowers.

4. Finally, I used marker to color the scallop design.  I love how what ever you use on the Irresistibly Yours designer paper changes the look. 

   How can you get some of this wonderful designer paper for yourself?  Place a $50 minimum order by March 31st and the paper will be yours for free.  Order number 138635.
