Seminar Stuff

All I can say is FABULOUS!!!

I had such a wonderful time at Seminar!!! I got to see a lot of my fellow angels, blog followers/stalkers, and Mischelle.

TAC was extremely generous to us attendees this year ... FABULOUS!

An amazing amount of product!! 22 stamp sets, 7 paper packs, a matchbook kit, hardware, ribbon, and bonus treats from Tsukineko.

It was amazing!! Hope all my friends made it home safely ... it's so sad that this only happens once a year!!!

I can't wait to cut all this rubber and get INKY!!

Prop Swap

So I was having the hardest time deciding what to make for the "prop swap" today at Seminar. And then it hit me ... why don't I make an ornament/wall hanging with my lovely cookie cutter project.

Well I didn't want to make a Christmas ornament so I did a summer scene.

I used Fibi and Lilly and sponged the sky and colored her with copics ... there is a ton of dimension in here with fun foam. I added a sentiment and ribbon .. Viola!

ENJOY! ... can't wait to see what I get!

7 Stamp Sets

When we registered last night they gave us 7 stamp sets that we would be using for our projects.

Sorry for the bad hotel lighting ... I indexed all of these sets last night and had to cut them out! UGH!
We had to WORK for our fun! Homework even!

Dotted flowers ... these look like they will be fun to color!

I love love love these trees ..... the flower punch will make this easy and fun!

New Soft Pencil set!

Very fun vintage and lacy doilie!

This is an old set!

Fun Fun Fun Japanese set!

Nature set with ducks!


More to come soon!

Special Trades

So today is a special day .... it's the first day of Seminar and it kicks off a day of Copic Intermediate Certification.

Also ... more trades ... "special trades" ... anything special that is not a card front ...

And here is mine....

It's a great post-it note holder with a pen. Talk about special and details .... I cut out 48 of these mice (foot and tail and all) and then wrapped black floss around the spool.

Here is a close up ....

This is the notepad showing the detail of the top of the pad to hold the pen. Also shows the closure.

This is the inside of the holder.

Aren't these cute and special!!!

Card Fronts!

Let the madness begin!!! ... the swapping and trading madness! It will start today ... people will start arriving at Seminar armed with their trades. I made 60 of these and within 2 days they will all be traded away for other's brilliant creations and inspirations!

This card uses the Sunshine stamp set and the Thinking of You sentiment set. I also used Robyn downloadable paper and pop-dotted quite a few elements for dimension. I added bling and ribbon as my personal touch ...


Welcome to Seminar

At the time of this posting, I will just about be landing in Wichita KS.

I made this special little gift for my downline Kerry Urbatch (who is making it to her first seminar since coming back to TAC under me) ... she is awesome and soo creative and she is on the TAC design team.

I am hoping to beat Kerry to the hotel and have this waiting for her on her pillow!

The base of this is a large cookie cutter. I added a cardstock base to it and it has many layers all built up with fun foam. I used the retiring set Dreamfly and a retired alphabet set. I added the TAC logo and a very fun purple polka dot ribbon. I used copics and sponging on this too!

Hello all my blogging friends ... you must be thinking ... man Chelsea's blog is really slow and lame lately ...

Well don't you worry ... I have been very busy with the upcoming TAC Seminar. Finishing up all of my trades - card fronts, special trades, and the prop swap.

What this will mean to you in a few weeks is posts ... and lots of them! I will finally be able to reveal what I have been working on ....

Anyway I made this card for the DigiDesignHouse challenge of a one layer card. I used Hip Hop Mice. I colored him with my copics and added the sentiment from that set. Had to add some embellishment ... so I chose an orange polka dotted ribbon!
