Works in Progress

It's one of those weeks where I have a whole host of projects in the pipeline and not a ton to share.  One of the things I'm diligently working on (had hoped to get them finished yesterday - oops!) is a set of thank you cards for my friend Meg who just had a baby.  Although I knew the colors I wanted to work with, it took me ages to come up with a design I liked (perfectionist, much?) but I'm finally there.


I've used the new "Baby Bundle" set in clear mount from Stampin' Up!  I knew I had to buy this set as soon as it comes out because I'm inundated with babies in my life right now - lots of blessings for family and friends!

I had a lot of fun stamping the background of these cards.  I combined several of the small images on one clear block and stamped them in Chocolate Chip ink onto the Pretty in Pink cardstock.  The background it my favorite part of the card!


I'm also getting everything in order for a wedding project.  165 wedding favors!  The bride has asked for the triangle boxes (remember I made these for a workshop recently?) in SU's "Blueberry Crisp" designer series paper (below right)


I'm going to use Very Vanilla ribbon, a shade of blue cardstock for the scallop circle, and find a cute "love" sentiment to stamp on for the greeting.  I'm very excited to put these together - can't wait to show you!

I'm also working on a "Back to School Crafts" piece for Babble.com, and a guest post project for the darling Caroline over at Salsa Pie, so those are keeping me busy as well!

I've been absolutely terrible about stopping over to people's blogs lately - who knew summertime could be so busy?  I promise I'll make time to head over and see what you've all be up to in the next couple of days.

Thanks for reading Ready, Set, Craft!

Perfectionism can be a curse...but I'd say those are perfect! So adorable - I love chocolate/pink. I'm starting a new baby sweater for my nephew and his wife and it is in pale pink with a chocolate edging.

I understand about summer being busy. That's ok - take it easy!
