1st project crossed off the list!

I have finally been able to cross off a finished project from the list of projects I'd like to have one hand for the Lazy Daze Art Festival next week.

It's not a huge project, but one of those that took much longer than anticipated.

These are cardstock rings that feature every solid color cardstock Stampin' Up! sells. Each sample is labeled with the name of the cardstock and the color family it is in. The samples are on a 2" ring that opens so you can take the colors off and try new combinations.

I worked on parts for the advent calendars. Cut the small squares, some of the larger squares and the strips for the tins. Then I adhered the sticky strip to everything that I cut. This project takes A TON of Sticky Strip.

Before I did all this fun cutting, I steam cleaned the carpets in the sunroom and in the dining room. Fun times, I tell ya!

Might have family in town for Reagan's birthday on Sunday, so I'm trying to clean as much as possible. And get as many projects finished as possible also because there will be no time while they are here. And I have a workshop Saturday night. Yep, lots of late nights for me.

You made me tired just reading your list of projects!! Love your cardstock ring sampliar. Good luck on getting everything done Monica -- but don't forget to take a little time for yourself!

I made a sampler using scalloped circles on a ring but just wrote the colours by hand. The little details take a lot of time but your labels make it look waaaay more professional than mine!
