Stampin Up Everything Eleanor

everything eleanor swap

 

 

This card was inspired by a swap card I saw at the 2014 Stampin Up Convention last month. I have been asked by several people how the card was created and unfortunately I only had taken a photo of

the card and did not have any of the instructions or the name of the original creator of the project so I made my own version of the card and I taught it at my August Stamp Camp.

It was a big hit!

So I would like to share it with you my subscribers.

    • Hi Janice!

      Thank you!

      You are absolutely correct, crafting is the best and cheapest therapy!
      It has helped me through some really stressful seasons in my life and to go from an active demonstrator to strictly a hobbiest was a difficult decision but I’m finally at peace with it and excited to see how God continues to use me in this next phase of my life. Thank you, thank you for the wonderful comment it makes me feel so grateful to know my efforts helped and inspired others. Please keep in touch and I would love to see some of your projects. I will try to post more but just as a hobbiest.
      Thanks again!
      Have a great night,
      Leah
