Creating With Paper on a Rainy Monday

Greetings through Raindrops!

I would have said raindrops falling on my head, but I am staying safe and dry inside today!  I will admit that I am loving our rain this year.  We have been fortunate to have 2-3 days of sun in between each of our storms, which really helps dry Southern California.  It allows our hills to soak the rain in rather than letting it sweep down the hills and cause real problems.  So far we have been lucky!  (Knocking on wood). 

On to some cards I have been working on.  I try and keep up with some challenges that are posed in a couple groups I am in, and have to admit, sometimes it is a tad difficult.  Since we were working our little (?) bottoms off this past weekend to get our house back to normal after the Holidays, I had to cram a couple in yesterday.  Yikes!  But here they are!

 The first one is a "weekly challenge".  Every Friday, my upline, Connie Stewart, gives us a Weekend challenge.  I hope to do more this year...

Next, Connie Stewart and her peers are giving us a new challenge each week in January to try a new technique!  The first technique was "Joseph's Coat".  Well, being so busy last week, I didn't get to it, but finally experimented with it today.  I think the next time I do this technique I will use lighter colors as the base.  I found my colors to be a bit dark, but I like the way it turned out for my first attempt!

Creating With Paper has Occasions and Sale-A-Bration!

Greetings Paper Peeps!

Happy New Year once again..have you recovered from the Holidays?  We have although we just started taking Christmas down in preparation for Valentines!  Never ends, but we love it!

Great news - the 2017 Occasions catalog is now live!  I am amazed at all the cute ideas and new items in it.  Here is a quick little video to show you just a few highlights!  (Turn on your sound!) 

 

Now remember that is just a PEEK at what the catalog has to offer!  If you would like a catalog all your own, just email me at michelle@creatingwithpaper.com and I will make sure you have one soon in your hot little hands!

Of course the New Year always is the start of Sale-A-Bration too!  It runs from January 4th through March 31, 2017  Purchase $50.00 worth of product and you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I took advantage of the demonstrator pre-order and I have to say, the free items are awesome!

Click on the catalog icons on the right to download the catalog, but as I said before, if you would like one to keep and look at over and over and over (like I do), let me know.  I will send both catalogs to you!  If you wish to place an order click on "Let's Shop" and don't forget to use the
