Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Is everyone enjoying their summer vacation?  It actually feels a little like fall here in North Texas…73 and rainy.  Perfect for me to duck into my newly reorganized studio/office and create.  Over the past few (rainy) days, I’ve whipped up a few cards using the new releases.  And, by “whipped up,” I mean that I spent a few hours tinkering and toying with stamps, ink and the like.  I’m not a fast creator.  Are you?  Rarely do I even use glue before I am actually done creating the project and I’m always adding and rearranging panels and embellishments until I get them just right.  I suppose it’s all part of the process, but I have to admit that I am a bit envious of stampers/crafters that really can just think of an idea and create it in no time at all.

I’ll be sharing more about my creative space and process in one of the new segments on the blog this week.  Stay tuned!

As for today, it’s Tuesday and that means it’s


Have you noticed the gold trend that is everywhere these days?  I was just admiring some fun and funky gold office accessories in a local store the other day and I just love all the gold accents that are popping up in the world of fashion, too!  Of course, the gold trend has trickled into paper crafting…papers, mists, sequins, cording, embellishments and more!  I stuck to what was already on my desk…gold tinsel embossing powder and INNER ROCK STAR. I’ve had the idea to create a card with several of the records in a line for quite sometime now, but it wasn’t until I embossed a record in gold for this card that I know that I wanted them all to be gold…


Detail shot…


I love all the white space on this card!  Even though there are a lot of little pieces, I was still able to maintain the white space and keep it clean and simple (CAS).  I started this card by creating this strip of gold records.  To play off the star in the center of the records, I added the punched stars.  To bring it all together, I added the gold sequins which tie into the shape and color of the records.
