This weekend my mom and aunts and I got together for a little stamping party... we just got into stamping! Yay! Smiley Anyway we spent saturday afternoon stamping and experimenting and then my mom and I did it again on sunday after church. Smiley

I tend to be a slow worker. It takes me forever to find the right combo of paper and then adding stamps is another issue and the color of ink is another debacle, so I only got 7 cards done. 2 aren't shown.

I got some steno notebooks to journal in, but the covers are so freaking ugly that I decided to make my own! I love love love the daisy paper from (SEI) and I knew I had to use a bit of it... I also ended up using foil and then just stamped "notes" on the cover. Easy peasy.

Hope you like them!
Comments + criticism welcome, I have tough skin and I want to get better!

They're fabulous!!! I love the colour combinations and the different layers of the paper.

Everything looks great, lama!  Like you, I am slow when it comes to paper crafting.  Too many goodies to choose from!  Nice work!

I love these! Great color combos and use of circles (I don't have a circle cutter, so I never use circles). It seems to take me awhile to do cards as well. I think the key is that once you select a layout and color scheme, either do a bunch just like that or only change one or two items. I just figured that out and cranked out a bunch of cards in one sitting!
