{taking flight}

so, I am extremely excited to announce that I am part of the Creative Crew at Splitcoast Stampers for the months of January through April!!

the Creative Crew create projects based on chosen monthly themes and challenges from some awesome Stampin' Up! demonstrators/stampers/challenge-hostesses hanging out at Splitcoast.
the challenge details are for Stampin' Up! demonstrators only, but the projects are visible by all once posted to the Gallery.

come to the gallery at Splitcoast to see supply details and the rest of the Creative Crew's projects.
i'm elliesmom - say hello!
it's fantastic inspiration, especially going into the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs :)

here's a glimpse at what I did:

mini-envelope mini-album with a mini-box and mini-sleeve for it :)

and some from the annual big book

I know people are looking at this one like "what the heck, Jennie?!"
but it's actually a beautiful, modern, clean, simple card that
showcases the beautiful dragonfly stamp and sentiment from the new set, Dragonfly Dreams!!
unfortunately, you'll need to make your own to fully appreciate it as it's a bit difficult
to do it justice as photographed :)
(let me know if you'd like a quick embossing lesson)

and, for the same Creative Crew challenge, here is the Stepped-Up version:
