Where does the time go?

Whoa! Its been a month! What happened?
I remember starting to prep for my class, scrambling to be ready, the kids showing up... Somewhere I lost a bunch of time. But I have been making some projects along the way, I just forget to publish them. So...

Let's start with some Circle Circus cards.

I love the new In Colors (like I always do) The picture doesn't do the Bermuda Bay justice. I double stamped the background with Circle stamps. In double stamping, you ink the stamp and stamp it multiple times. Each time, the image becomes lighter. I like double stamping for a background since it gives it more interest than if all the images were stamped in full ink. The eyelet punch was used to make a border and the Polka dot ribbon added an accent. A pearl from the Pretties finishes it off in the medallion center.

The Razzleberry card is very similar. The ribbon is different since I used White grosgrain. It doesn't look white because I used a marker to turn the ribbon into Razzleberry ribbon. Gotta love those markers!

Very nice. I like the simplicity of the monochromatic (and am starting to love the in colors as well) with the added hint of elegance with the lace border and the pearl. I hope class is going well.

Lovely! I really love the way that these cards have so many little details and yet have an appealing simplicity.
