Hello my friends...
We are back from our vacation to the Alps and (somewhat) back to normal. I hope you've been enjoying the blogs I prepared for delayed posting during our time away. I am planning to begin daily postings of our travels on a day by day basis but between the two of us we took over 1000 pictures - some good, some really good, and some, well, not so good - I think it may take some time for me to weed through the pictures and notes so it may be next week before I am prepared enough to post a sampling of our trip. We started in Munich, Germany and from there went to Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. But more on that later.
During the time I was gone, Stampin' Up had their annual convention in Salt Lake City and I'm sure it was lots of fun. From what I can glean from other demonstrators, there will be more "punch art" in our futures. That pleases me ... I love punches and am always amazed at the creations people come up with. Here is a sample of how to use some of the following punches....
Punches used are from pages 219 - 223: Blossom Punch #125603, Pansy punch #130698, Bird Builder (leaves & snail) #117191, 1/2" Circle #119869, 3/4" circle #119873. 1" circle #119868, 1-1/4" circle #119861, 1-3/8" circle #119860
Isn't this cute? I adore the little snail made with all the circle punches and the bird punch. Can't wait to try this out. Here's another picture that was apparently a display at Convention. Fun, fun!!
Time for me to go play around with my trip photos... stay tuned... and wish me luck... lottsa pix!
