As I have already reported in previous blog posts about The Basics, I had a wonderful time completing these assignments. The best part was utilizing the basic instructions and techniques presented, but being able to make them completely my own. Since I did not have many of the supplies required to do them as instructed, I was able to put my own spin on each one by digging into my own personal arsenal of Stampin' Up! goodies and using what I already had instead.
For a mere $14.95, I strongly encourage you, whether you are a novice paper crafter, wish to revisit or brush up on tried and true techniques, or, like me, want to challenge yourself to 34 fun projects by putting your own spin on them, to order this download online class, The Basics.
Anyway, I am pleased to present to you the Final Five.
I would be curious to know how any of you fared on this project. Let me know!
This is another project that I changed up considerably from what was presented. I THINK I like the way it turned out. Dragging out some of my old eyelets to put in the center of the flower seemed like a great idea at the time. Now, I'm not so sure.
Just a reminder: Even though some of the products in your supply stash have retired, please don't retire them from your mind! As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I hesitate to use retired product for my workshops, but for my personal creations, I love to resurrect some of the oldies but goodies that I may have set aside.
As so often happens, my interpretation of this project from The Basics is a departure from what was instructed. I took the basic premise and ran with it. I don't regret my decision -- but I DO feel a little naughty. The project in The Basics is truly a lovely one . . .
My journey of 34 days through Stampin' Up!'s online class, The Basics, is one I will always treasure. I'm glad I embarked on this joyful undertaking.
With that, I can say, "That's All Folks."
