No picture this time! I made a heart - all the paper folding and scotch taping was fine ---- although using scotch tape feels very unnatural! My cutout of the heart - the actual template shape was not well done - I am a very poor cutter! Several websites recommend using a craft knife - my husband recommends I don't! I am a bit of a danger to myself with sharp objects! So - I guess it's back to the drawing board to practice my cutting skills = or I will just us paper punches or Sizzix dies - I am safe with those! I also found a website to purchase pre-cut templates. While this is expensive - it will be well worth it for "designer" shapes...I really like iris folding - it is so so so easy - and equally beautiful!

I bought the most wonderful stamps this week! My favorite - the sentiment is like my life - I start the day with puppy slobber also! I also bought a little doggie paw print - and a "HUG" stamp to use for OWH cards. I had fun making these - liked them when I was done - AND they made me happy! Isn't that the point of crafting?????

I don't have any "seasonal" stamps - so I bought some awesome 3D stickers! I decided to work totally outside my box - and used bright orange paper, a piece of paper I have saved and saved - because I just didn't like it - and I used my picket fence punch! Justification to purchase craft supplies I am not certain of at the time! I do love the ribbon I used - but instead of saving it for next year - I think I will give it to my granddaughter for her piggie tails! I also used Viva Decor Pearl Pens for the first time - love it!!!!!!!!

I think this is Autumn"y"! I live in the desert - but I do have a tree in my yard - besides all the palm trees (I don't like those!) that changes colors in about 2 days in December - then drops it's leaves the next - and 2 days later it is blooming and budding green leaves! I went to NJ to visit my brother and sister-in-law during leaf changing times - and enjoyed it very much!

All of the wonderful paper I ordered came in - I received in Sunday at a Stampin UP! workshop - I love it love it love it! I just look at the paper and touch it - I can't possible use it yet! AND I bought the Scotch ATG yesterday - hoping to find it cheaper today! Last night I showed my 5 (almost 6) year old granddaughter how my Vagabond machine works! I embossed a sheet of paper for her - the look of amazement and joy! She learned about my punches two weeks ago - and she is a virtual glue machine also! I am loving teaching her - and playing her student! Crafting is even better when shared. I haven't shown her how my sewing machine works --- maybe in a few months!
