Just a quick card I made this morning. I used what I had left of the Daily Junque paper from Pink Paislee. I love that paper!!! The ribbon is seam binding that I colored with Tattered Angels Chaulk ink. How fun! Heidi Swapp taught us that technique in our class.

Another layout. Lesson 10. This one took me two hours. When I first saw the photo of what we were going to be doing, I thought this one is easy... but again. Almost all the elements are hand made in class, not jpgs you just import. I am really learning a lot in this class.
Though it may not look like it, this layout took me forever! It's lesson 9 in our Jessica Sprague class and there are so many techniques going on this that it takes awhile. You have to extract the lace from a scan, extract the burlap, create the ticket from scratch, create the water color painted edges on the photo, etc, etc, etc.
I did weigh myself on Friday, but forgot to post. I've lost a total of 10 pounds and have decided to go for 17 total, so I've got 7 more to go. Really not doing anything in particular differently other than eating a sensible breakfast and lunch and for dinner I eat what I want, but still watch the portions. I did make cookies yesterday, and had a couple and we went out for breakfast which isn't usual, so today I will be extra good. :)

Made this card with the same template just because I'm bored at the moment. Also, Heidi Swapp shared her secret Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with the class... had to try... they are YUMMY!!!!

Both of the above cards were printed on white cardstock. All of the pattern paper is digitally created as well as the embellishments (with the exception of the ribbon)
Really love this type of class. Reminds me a lot of Jessica Spragues card class with the added benefit of Heidi Swapp.
A little about Heidi Swapp. She's been so awesome. She's on our forum messageboard daily, she talks with everyone and has the most wonderful sense of humor.. can you tell I'm a fan?? Really, I highly recommend this class or any class by Heidi and/or Jessica.

Here's the something more.. :) I couldn't figure out below. Jessica added some new brushes to the class downloads.. that was exactly what the layout below was missing! She's so awesome!
We've switched gears from FreeStyle to Shabby Chic style. This layout needs something more, but not sure what. I tried a few things, but they just didn't "do it" for me.
