Altered Pringles can

Well, I've been seeing these altered Pringles cans on SCS, so I had to make one. Someone had the idea that they could be filled with Christmas cookies to give to friends and family, so I think I'm going to do that. Lots of people are also using them for home decor, but I'm just not that creative =). I really need to order some designer series paper, I think that would have looked better. All I have right now is the Palette O' Prints, which you can't do but so much with. Check out the one's on Splitocast. They are awesome!

-Stamps-Baroque Motifs, Linen background and Happy Everything
-Paper-Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, and Kraft.
-Ink-Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, and Creamy Caramel.
-Accessories-Bravo Burgundy grosgrain, circle cutter..oh yea, and a Pringles can =).

Fabulous Flowers Composition book

My best friend works at an office store, so she picked up some composition books for me when they were on sale for 25 cents each. I think this one is going to be for my SU! wishlists. I keep making them on single sheets of paper and just keeping them it a clipboard, but thats just getting to messy. It shouldn't take me too long to fill this baby up =). Sorry, the picture isn't very good here. I'm not sure if you can tell in the picture, but at the bottom I stamped Dare to be Fabulous. Also along the spine, it doesn't look like it in the pic, but thats chocolate chip cardstock stamped with seeing spots. The back of the book is the same as the bottom half of the front.
-Stamps-Fabulous Flowers, Seeing Spots, and Spot On jumbo wheel
-Paper-Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White.
-Ink-Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, and Soft Sky
-Accessories-Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon, and Mod Podge

Carla's sketch challenge

I just made this card for Carla's sketch challenge. Her blog is really great by the way, so go check it out! I really loved this sketch! I don't think I did such a great job with it, but it was a great sketch. I think I'm going to try it again when I get my InColors Friday. I ordered all the InColors and Fabulous Flowers. I'm really excited to get that set. I actually hated it at first (I thought it was absolutely hideous!), but then I kept seeing such amazing cards with it so I had to have it =). Actually I didn't like most of the new colors at first either, but thanks to SCS, I decided I couldn't live with out them all, lol. Amazing how your tastes change when you spend enough time looking at the gallery on SCS. =)This card 4 3/4 square
