More Display Samples

Good Afternoon!

Here to the left (to the left, to the left ... sorry had a Beyonce moment there) is another of my submissions for the display samples at convention. Here I used the designer paper OUTLAW and fashioned a paper bracelet. Remember the old bracelets we used to make from gum wrappers? - well, why not make one from designer paper? It really is cool and stretchy so it is easy to put on. The cuff on the bracelet was made from the On Board Accents chipboard, some brushed copper (so sorry to see that go - I love copper), copper EP for the medallion from the WANTED stamp set and some vintage brads (my favorite brads) Oh yes, with the on board accent piece I just coated it with some Chocolate Chip craft ink. It looks like leather. The whole idea came to me when I was thinking "Western" and I thought of the big belts that the cowboys wear (a very nice visual I might add as I thought of Tim McGraw in tight blue jeans and a big belt..mmmm) Sorry, I got on a little tangent there. Anyway - I though this an original idea and had lots of fun with it. Oh - did you notice what I put the bracelet on to take the photo? I thought is accented the bracelet well.

Leave me your comments and tell me what you think it is! I .

Like my watermark? I downloaded the font for my initials online at a great Free Font site called There are soooo many cool fonts at this site and they're all FREE! I thought this paisly one would be great for all my BoHo samples that I post. I created the watermark in Photoshop Elements 5.0. There was an article in PaperCrafts magazine that kind of showed how to play with word layouts and such.

There are some really great Stampin' Up! specials coming up that I can't wait to share with you. One of them is in regards to Sell-A-Bration! So stay tuned and I will blog at you again soon!
