Two 15 Minute Projects ... 'Cept One Took 4 Hours

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, Hampers!

Today's 15 Minute card project was created using stamps from Stampin' Up and some 1 3/4" card stock punchies.

I stamped all my images on Whisper White card stock using dye ink from Stampin' Up. I stamped the flower spray image twice and layered them for a little dimension on the card. I added some brads from my stash to four of the images and finis! Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

For all the mind-blowing product info, check out the supply list below.

Soooooooooo, yesterday I was hangin' out at Sheila's helping her "organize her spice collection." I kid you not. And did you know that you can check online to decipher the age of your spices? Yeah, me neither ... and may I just say that this step added hours to what should have also been a 15 Minute Project. And I wonder why I only have 15 Minutes to create a card?!?

Her DH was busy packing for a business trip and Reid-the-Wild-Child was bouncing off the walls as per usual.

By the time we got through "Rosemary, Dried, June '09," Ken came into the kitchen, suitcase in hand, to say goodbye.

"Reid," he said, "I'm trusting you to take good care of your Mom and be the man of the house."

Comprehending the gravity of the situation, Reid said seriously, "In that case Dad, I'm going to need the remote."

We're still gigglin' on that one ... The Great Spice Project of 2010? Not so much ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
