Happy February 15th!

Oh, I have many projects to share with you! I'll be posting a lot of new things to look at this weekend, as both the Papertrey Ink release and the closing of CHA has allowed me carte blanche on posting what I have been working on.

I'm going to start by sharing my PTI projects for the "Women of Life" stamp set by Melissa Bickford. I love the versatility of this set.

The green ink on this card is the new Spring Moss exclusive color from Papertrey Ink. This, and Aqua Mist, are absolutely gorgeous. I'm in love! ;)

Here is an additional project I did with this set. It is a plastic purse that I picked up at my local Arvey store. Becky Oehlers and I were chatting about this chain last night. I'm telling you, this place is a diamond in the rough! Arvey is part of the XpedX family of stores, so here is a link to see if you have either in your neck of the woods: Xpedx Store Locations I always find cool things in there, so if you have one nearby, you might want to check it out! Here's the purse:

I filled it with seed packets for a quick, little gift. You will notice that the flowers are die cut - I used the Cuttlebug scalloped flowers/circles. You probably also notice that the stamps and shapes don't line up perfectly, but I liked the way they looked, so I went with it! The flowers were done with pink ink on white paper; I then went over the stamped images with my Copic airbrush system and my R81 Rose Pink Sketch marker. Voila! It no longer looks white! (If you're in the market for a very cool tool, I can't recommend this system enough!)

I will be back later with more PTI projects from today's release. In the meantime, you have ONE MORE HOUR to enter my little celebration giveaway. I've enjoyed hearing all that you're excited about from all the companies at CHA - and I've especially enjoyed hearing how many of you are excited about things like Xcaliber! Chat with you in a bit!

Be well ~ Jenn

Oh my gosh Jenn, that purse is absolutely adorable!!! Apparently there's a xpedx near me, but it seems like it's for businesses. Is that true?
