Convention projects!

Hello! Happy Thursday to you!  I wanted to share a couple of projects that we made at Convention with you.  This first one was from a class we took called I am a pattern mixing pro.  The focus was learning how to mix different types of patterned paper without it being too busy or over-whelming.  Carrie Cudney taught the class and she did a fabulous job!  Here is the sweet project that we made:

Isn't this the cutest thing?!  It is really adorable in person!  It uses lots of different patterned DSP including the background page that everything is stamped on and adhered to!  We used the background stamp distressed dots and the stamp set Lacy and Lovely for a couple of the flowers.  The whole thing is mounted on canvas.  Fun, fun project!

Circle flowers and cone flowers up close!

Button centers were all sewn on. Love this paper from the Summer Smooches DSP pack.

This is another one of the neat projects we did.  This is a scrapbook page that uses the new divided page protectors found on page 169 of the Idea book and Catalog.  You get 10 different configurations of page dividers! Sooo cool!  Cannot wait to scrapbook a whole album like this!!

As long as I am talking about classes I wanted to give a shout out to the amazing Stampin Up! Presenters @ convention this year!  I leaned so very much from them and really, really enjoyed their presentations!  So, to all of you wonderful folks, thank you for your time and your knowledge!  It is greatly appreciated!  Here is a list of the awesome presenters (in no particular order!):
