Juggling at the Speed of Light

Life at the Stewart house is a bit like a juggling act right now and someone keeps adding another ball to the act! With college students arriving home, school field trips, Spring Fling for our youngest, nursing ceu's due, Sunday School, church activities, a concert this weekend...; my stamping activities have had to take a back seat.


Today's project was done on Monday for MojoMonday challenge but, it took me 4 days to post. It uses products out of the soon to be history - Occasions Mini catalog. The stamp set is Create a Cupcake stamp set with the coordinating Build a Cupcake punch. I masked the flowers and paper pieced a few to make the bouquet.

The circles were cut using the Circle Scissor Plus at 2 1/2" and 2 3/4" diameters and layered over a scallop circle cut from the Scallop Circle #2 Die and the Big Shot. The vertical strips were created using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch and So Saffron card stock. I used yellow thread and cross-stitched the X's. The bottom layer was cut using the Tasteful Trim Die on Sweet Stitches Designer Series Paper. The color palette I used was based on the Sweet Stitches Designer Series paper with the coordinating colors, So Saffron & Melon Mambo.

That is it for today! I hope you enjoyed the project and I hope to post again soon!! Please contact me if you have any questions.

And on a special note: to all of you impacted by the terrible weather that went across the south yesterday, you're in our family's prayers!

God Bless,
