ByTheTideLobster I'm on a roll, sharing the 'By The Tide' Stampin' Up! Set. And I have to admit that I took some flack over this card at the festival that I featured it at, people didn't really think that the shabby chic really went with lobster. Or maybe I missed the mark on the definition of 'shabby chic'? Oh well.

And the most DIFFICULT thing to find was the cotton gauze–apparently the stuff I had in my medicine closet is the old style–now it is all stretchy type that doesn't fray… I went nuts looking for it. Ended up going to a hospital supply store and having to by a roll of like 500 yards of it, LOL!  You guys can appreciate going to stores and trying to explain that 'well, I'm not really using it for wound dressing, I just wanted the stuff that frayed…' oh yeah, get her a rubber padded room (stat).

Anyway, I've included my step by step photo instructions (warning: don't download it if you don't like it, LOL!). You can view the stamp set here.

What can I say? I'll let you decide. Hit or miss? My fate is in your hands.

Stationery Box 'By The Tide'

By The Tide Box I'm celebrating the re-design of www.Ustamp4fun.com by sharing a step-by-step stationery box with a fabulous summer set 'By The Tide.' This was one of my SAB rubber stamp festival projects.

You can click on the PDF (left) and see the step-by-step photo directions. This is a cute purse-like box that will hold a set of cards.

And I'm sorry my feed service kicked out a January post the other day… Feedburner is no longer very reliable and I think my upgrades on my site caused Feedburner to overreact.
