BPC Happy Mail – distressed challenge November 4, 2012

Filed under: Cards and misc projects,Contests,Events — amberscrappin @ 10:49 am

Well, hello!!!


I’ve been away for a long time now. Not from creating, per se, but from my blog, for sure. Just too much other stuff happening (all good!). I decided today, a pretty, snowy Sunday, was as good a day as any to return! I LOVE BPC (Big Picture Classes) … Stacy Julian is amazing. She inspires me in many ways. I am so glad I found BPC. In a relatively short period of time, I’ve taken a few of the classes offered by BPC (some of them free!) and taken part in a couple of events. Loved them all!


Stacy is leading a Happy Mail campaign, and I’m a happy participant! Today, I’m posting a photo of a card I made that has been distressed (if you look closely, you can see that the card front is embossed with a chevron pattern and then sanded in some places to reveal the kraft core; I also used a pin to poke holes around the yellow circle to add some subtle dimension). I made this card for my lovely sister-in-law, Kelly, for her birthday (tomorrow!) … happy birthday, Kel!!



Hope you like it :). I promise to try to be back a little more often. I’ve got a couple of really fun scrapbooking events coming up right away so I’ll be learning lots!!! One of them is Crop & Create, hosted by my most favourite inspirational magazine, Scrapbook and Cards Today. It is going to R.O.C.K.!!!!


Take care, and happy scrappin’ Sunday!
