A Muse Studio Spring Catalog

Good morning, everybody!  I'm here in Georgia and watching all the nasty weather build around here.  Lots of freezing rain, ice and power outages.  I'm praying that we don't have to deal with a power outage, but as the ice builds so do the chances. :(
Anyway, I'm here today to give you a first look at the upcoming Spring Accessories Catalog from A Muse Studio.  It is filled with many new and oh so cute items.  Check it out by clicking on the photo below....
All products featured in the new catalog will be available to purchase starting on March 1.  Please visit my Online Store to purchase these and all other A Muse Studio products. :)  And remember, any order of $150 or more can be entered as a workshop so that you can earn hostess benefits!  Email me for more information.
If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to ask!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Timer Challenge: Take 3

I am loving this particular card layout, can you tell? :)  While this one doesn't qualify for the day 1 challenge because it isn't the right color palette, it does only have 7 products and came together very quickly for the timer challenge.
Product list:
1. Fine Linen cardstock
2. Blueberry Sky cardstock
3. Pure Poppy cardstock
4. Ric Rac die
5. Inside & Out Birthday #2
6. Men of Life Pattern Paper
7. Brown Ink
Ok, gotta go. For some reason my kids and husband want to eat dinner.  Whatever.  I've been doing some very serious business. My craft room hasn't gotten this much action in quite a long time. ;)

Timer Challenge: Take 2

I had just enough time this afternoon to squeeze in one more card for the Timer Challenge on the PTI blog.  This time I wanted to see if I could combine challenges.  This card is for the timer challenge as well as the sketch/color combo challenge from Day 1.  It was indeed a challenge trying to figure out how to work all those colors into a 7-product-17-minute-limit project.  So, one card, two challenges, one cardstock sheet, 4 ink colors, 2 stamp sets and 17 minutes.  Whew!

Here goes...
Not something that would fall under the "Masterpiece" heading, but hey, I had 17 minutes.  If I had to choose again, I'd pick a sentiment that had a bit more interest.  It is what it is.  And what it is- is fun. :)

Papertrey Ink Timer Challenge

Here is my entry in the PTI Timer Challenge that is part of their anniversary festivities.  This is day 3, I believe.  Today's challenge is to find 7 products in 7 minutes and create a card in under 17 minutes. 

Here's mine...
I used exactly 7 products: 4 ink colors, 2 paper colors and 1 stamp set. 
It's OK. And for the contest purposes, that's where this card ends. 
I am physically incapable of leaving the flower centers naked.  I'm just not that strong.  I'm only human after all.  Sooo...
Here's what the card will look like when it is actually sent to someone.
Ah.  That's better.  I would ideally like to throw another color in there somewhere, but it'll do.

And another...

These were so much fun....and so quick & easy!  Not a masterpiece by any stretch, but still cute. :)  These downloaded images are just great.  Can't promise there won't be more cards made with them.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!!


Here is card #2 from the free PTI download.  I thought I could put all these cards in one blog post and link each photo to the one post, but each has to have its own link.  So...

LOVE this image!!  This will be great to create a Thank You card set. :)
Thanks for stopping by!!

Don't call it a comeback....

So I'm on a roll...and I like it! :)

Here is a card I made with PTI's free download images.  These are so fun and quick!!  I think I will print a couple extra copies to have some quick cards ready to go.

I have a couple more that I will post as well. 
These came together so quickly that I just might whip up a few more. :)

Papertrey Challenge: Entry #2

Hi all!! I'm back again and it feels good.  :)  These challenges are just what I needed to get my mojo going.  Here is my second card for the Day 1 PTI Challenge.  I probably wouldn't have put these colors together otherwise, but I like it!

PTI Anniversary Challenge- Day 1

Hello peeps!  Today I am posting my entry in the Papertrey Ink anniversary challenge for Day 1. I apologize for the crappy lighting and's been so long since I've posted a card that I forgot how I used to do it.  Sad and pathetic, I know.  Hopefully, my next post will look a little better.   If you have any questions about any of the products, just let me know! :)
