A long, long time ago...

...the blogging music died. Well, went in arrest anyway. But I'm back and determined to share regularly. Thank you to Joy and Catherine for asking me about it and showing an interest!

My time with the DT at is almost over. It has been such a wonderful opportunity and a fantastic group to work with. Thank you so much Heike, Mel, Sheree, Deb, Lydell and Rach. I will definitely be hanging around though.

To kick off the return to the blogosphere here is the sample for my weekly challenge.

I handcut the large red damask motif from Pink Paislee 365 degrees paper; the border on the bottom is stamped with Versamark and embossed with American Crafts Zing glitter embossing powder (red). I've been waiting for a chance to use the Heidi Swapp bling frame forever and the title is from October Afternoon Thrift Shop shape stickers.

On an interesting side note, I bought the red glitter embossing powder by mistake- I was after red glitter but didn't check the description carefully enough. But it has been one of those beneficial slip-ups- I really like the effect it gives. And because it is powder rather than glitter, it really picks up some of the stamping detail glitter would miss.


  1. Hi Jen! Great to see you blogging again. :) I didn't realise you had stamped and embossed the border along the looks awesome! LOVE this layout. I'm going to miss seeing your challenges every week...but I'm so glad you'll be sticking around!

  2. You are back, I missed you. I love seeing your gorgeous work and it's been such a pleasure working with you. I'm glad you are sticking around. I would miss you xoxo
