Convention Make & Take #1

I love when our new catalog comes out. It's exciting to see all of the new ideas and products. Even though it's been out for a few months I still find myself finding something new every time I look through it. There is always those that I love and ones that I think I'll never ever never use. I was proven wrong while on Convention.

One stamp set in particular called Gorgeous Grunge:

I never imagined that I would use it much less find a way to use it and like it. After seeing many projects using this stamp set I have fallen in love with it. There are so many uses for it that I would have never thought of!

While at Convention, we are given Make & Takes in our bag that we get every year. It contains all different kinds of projects to make with the stamp sets we are given for free. I am so glad that this was one of the free sets because I don't think that I would have ever bought it. Once I got home and settled in my craft room which was a few weeks later I pulled out all of these projects. I never made the ones from last year so I was determined to do them all in one sitting.

Here is the card and envelope that I made.

Awesome, right? I know! The other stamp set that was used is Hello, Lovely which is another one I would have probably never bought but it was also a free set. Thank you, Stampin' Up!

I now find myself grabbing this set whenever I can because it has so many different uses! Never underestimate little splatters and streak lines. You never know what beautiful card you could make.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like a catalog. You can also visit my website at for more information on these projects.

Thanks for visiting my blog and happy stampin'
