A Summary of 2011

Well, I did this last year and picked one favorite for each month. I couldn’t possibly decide upon a Top5 or a Top3… Luckily for me, Kellie has asked for the Top10, and as I happened to have created nothing, nada, niente in February and October last year (for the record not by choice 😉 ), this fits the bill…

This was the 2nd card I created last year. The cute and fun image is from Whiff of Joy and most of the papers from Maja Design. The ribbon was very special to me as I had bought it while on vacation in Malaysia several years ago. Last week I noticed that they now sell it at Hobby Craft… 😆

First card made in the US. I hadn’t crafted for about 6 weeks, so I was über excited to be back again. Didn’t matter that I didn’t have a table and had to color my images on an empty microwave box. 😀 More papers from Maja Design and the image is from Motivet.

Mmmmm…male. Probably no one’s favorite, but I’m actually quite happy with how this one turned out. I even enjoyed making it. SHOCKING!!!

My 1st gate fold card ever. Belated Birthday card for a friend (well last year I was late with practically all of them… 😳 ). Papers: Maja Design Image: In2Stamps

1st Criss Cross Card. Yup; I finally got around to trying some new card shapes last year. Also did a couple of different step cards. It’s fun, but I’m kinda’ lazy so I’d like the Grand Calibur and some large Nesties/Go Kreate frames to assist me with different shapes… Papers again from Maja Design and an old In2Stamps image.

My favorite In2Stamp image; I just love her long curly hair. Shame on me who only inked her up once. I promise to do better this year.

Card created after having made a couple of male ones…that’s when the embellishment monster inside of me comes out;  it’s like I have to make up for the bellies I haven’t been able to use on the male cards… 😉 Image: WOJ

Believe it or not, but another male card makes it onto the list! These fun stamps are from Vilda Stamps – a Swedish company I discovered at Stempelmekka in Germany. The papers are the same as for the male Magnolia card above; “Blue Awning” by K &Company. Actually, now that I think about it, I’m about to run out of these and what on Earth shall I then use for male cards???

Deadening statistics & SPSS instead of stamps & stickles. 😥
But I did pass the course,  earned my degree…………AND
………got to visit Magnolia!!! 😀

Girly belated birthday card. An old Sugar Nellie stamp, now belongs to Belles n’ Whistles. My favorite Elisabeth Bell image. Papers: Maja Design

Feels like I made millions of Christmas cards in December… (note to self; MUST start earlier this year…), but this pink Magnolia Shaker Card is my favorite.

Hehe; and that was me thinking I don’t use a lot of pink… 😯

Thanks for stopping by  & – Best Wishes for the New Year

P.S. The enthusiastic visitor will notice that in last year’s post, I had stats on quantity (this year it summed up to 89, so one short of last year), stamp brands used etc. I decided to leave that out this time, but yes, I have created an Excel  spread sheet and done some comparisons… Sometimes statistics can be fun! 🙂 I’m far from recoding the data, entering it in SPSS and running a Multiple Regression Analysis though…  LOL
