The Great Outdoors

First I want to thank you for all the sweet comments you left about my Ruffled Paper Frame Mirror!  Didn't we have a fabulous week of FREE Preview Week Tutorials!  Wow!  I can't wait to make some of the projects the other Design Team members showed! 

We JUST started the New Catalog 2012 Edition of Create with Connie and Mary, so it's not too late to join!  This week we are featuring the new "Nature" sets from the 2012-2013 Idea Catalog!  Papaya Collage, Serene Silhouettes, Fine Feathers, Flock Together, Take Care, World Treasures and The Great Outdoors are all included!  Don't miss out…sign up today to be the first to see the new projects we share!


The Great Outdoors was TOP of my list to purchase…a great masculine set for my family who like campfires, camping and sitting at games in camp chairs!  I made this one up for my dad's birthday!  Since June is a crazy month for us with lots of birthdays, anniversaries and Father's Day, we picked the last Sunday in June to celebrate all of them.  He'll get this on Sunday!  My kids can remember MANY, MANY weiner roasts over a fire with their grandpa at the Lake House.



I started with a base of Midnight Muse (yes…I'm really LOVING this new shade of dark blue!)  I added a layer of Crumb Cake.  On top of that I layered more Midnight Muse cut on each long end with the new Finishing Touch edge.  I added World Spectacular Designer Paper pattern and a little Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon across the bottom.  I stamped the campfire image and weiner stick with Black Stazon on Whisper White and cut it with the Label Framelit.  I colored with Stampin' Write Markers in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.  The weiner is Calypso Coral with Crumb Cake over top.  Hmmm, this is making me hungry!  I love burnt hotdogs!  lol!


I hope to get lots done today…Convention is coming up FAST and I have lots of swaps to make, plus finish up a couple more projects for Create!  Busy, busy!
