I am sorry I haven’t’ shared with you over the weekend. I did have stuff to share, but SCS work is crazy right now. That server switch will be wonderful in the long run, but boy does it create more work right now…..I didn’t get to do much all weekend but work.
When I was shooting the video for the stained glass technique, I had to create another image just like the one I already shared. I used the same sketch as on the last card, but turned it into a 4 1/4″ square. You know me….that’s my comfort zone.
Paper, ink….everything else is the same. No surprise though that I like this one better, right? The ribbon is different. It’s Stampin’ Up!’s Organza Ribbon. This time I left the image a rectangle and cut it and the Chocolate Chip layer behind it with Rectangle Nestabilities.
The inside is super simple, just a 3 15/16″ square of Whisper White cardstock and a 1 1/4″ x 3 15/16″ strip of the gorgeous BasicGrey patterned paper.
Keeping you updated on my thought process regarding my decision about Stampin’ Up!
I am still debating about whether or not I should sign the new Stampin’ Up! IDA. While I have spoken with Stampin’ Up! and they would allow me to continue my work on SCS and to stay a demonstrator, I still feel conflicted.
It would not be right for me not to post the details of projects I create with non Stampin’ Up! products – it would hurt the quality of my tutorials. While I do understand the reasoning behind asking demonstrators not to overtly market other products, I’m not sure if that restriction will work for me and my work on SCS.
Daven doesn’t tell me what to post on my blog and what not (how sweet he is! ). But I like what I create for SCS and I want to be able to post it here…along with the details of how I made it. So…as of right now I am leaning towards not signing the new agreement. If Stampin’ Up! changes their rules a little bit more and allows us to give credit to the companies whose products we use on our personal blog, then I will probably change my mind. But I feel I need to prepare you should that not happen.
This is a very difficult decision for me. I started stamping with Stampin’ Up! products and I LOVE their products and the company. I really love being an upline to my downline members. But I love my work for Splitcoast more. I think that’s what it will come down to. I want to share all my work here, not just the projects that feature Stampin’ Up! products. I want to mention all the products I use to give credit where credit is due. It’s respectful and the right thing to do.
I will keep you posted. Hugs and smiles
