Playing with Decor Elements

Ok, so I spent much of last weekend goofing around with Stampin' Up's new Decor Elements and I must say I don't know why it took me so long to play with these. They are fabulous!
I have so many ideas of what I'd like to do with them now... including repainting my upstairs bathroom and using the Manhattan Flowers on the wall. I used one of the three Manhattan Flower images on the platter below:

isn't that cool? I LOVE it. The Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set is my favorite anyway and it matches perfectly so I think I'll make some wall hangings with that set and then coordinate them with the decor elements. Piece of cake!
I also played with the Eastern Blooms pieces... here is a bathroom canister with one of the smaller flowers on it -- I demo'ed this in a workshop and they loved it -- it's super easy!

Cute huh? One other thing I played with was the small versions of the Inspiration words (Life, Love, Faith and Hope) and I used "love" on a glass picture frame I bought at Home Goods... (Don't mind the picture -- it's a little blurry, but you can see the Decor Element clearly)...

I used a small chipboard heart inked with pink passion craft ink and kraft colored tafetta ribbon to embellish the frame. It's going to find a home on my desk at work....
Well, I'm off to try and put up a large flower image on my wall... but first I have to clean the room so it might be a while ;o)

Amazing.... four scrapbooking pages in one weekend!

Boy, it's been forever since I've posted! It's been a little crazy in my neck of the woods, but it's been a good busy... well except for the falling down the stairs and dropping an 80 lb bag on my leg and being sick all weekend!! But enough about that!

I actually went to the Crazy for Croppin' retreat last weekend and managed to get four scrapbook pages done in between selling some stuff and teaching a class. I love having dedicated time to just sit and scrapbook and not be distracted by the dishes in the sink, the laundry in the closet or that crazy thing called the computer!

I'm hoping to work off my mementum and make a few more pages in the next few days.... but I'm sure life will go back to being busy! Until then, here's some pictures of the pages I did....
