Got the AX!

Well, not really the AX-I stay at home with the kids. Sometimes that's a job you wish you could get fired from! LOL!
Anyhow, I had made the projects listed below back in Oct, than sent them in for samples for the new TAC catty. They didn't make the cut-hence the AX title. Boo hoo! So sad for me! I know from being published in there last year, how exciting it is to have your cards published, so I'm happy for all the demos that did make it into the new catty. TAC sent out a design call listing stamps and papers together. They also included some sketches that we could follow if we wanted too. All of mine followed a sketch from them.
This scrapbook page of Trey combined two of my TAC favorites, Mimi paper pack, and Life is Short stamp set. I also used Spring Time to stamp the swirls on the background. This was Trey's first day of First Grade!
This one turned out super pretty. Not my normal style, but I loved the end result. This set was retired with this catty release. One of my favorite holiday stamp sets. This is Reece paper line, and Holiday Magic stamp set. I had heat embossed gold embossing powder, and lightly spounged around it with Haystack Palette ink pad.
I loved how this card turned out. This uses Pop Rockz and Spring Time stamp set. It also uses script background stamp. The Palette ink pad is Bordeaux. Such a fun color to use!
This paper is called Caitlyn, and it uses one of my favorite stamps, Gerbera Daisy. I wasn't overly happy with this card though. For some reason, I couldn't get the groove on this card.
This card using Perky Penguins, and Reese Paper pack. I cut out parts of my penguin, added stickles to tree, fun flock to his hat, and added some for snow at the bottom of his feet.
This is Pop Rockz paper and Build a flower stamp set. This was Gabi's first day of Third Grade. The girl loves some pink and bling! Her clothes went so well with the paper. I also thought I did a great job keeping the page tame considering her clothes, and the patterns on the papers. That paper line has some fun colors, and patterns!
Thanks for stopping by! The TAC catty is live tomorrow! Some cute new stamps in the catty this year! And better yet, one of my most favorite people in the world made the cover and back cover of the catty! I was so excited for her when saw it! Such a cute cards!

Anna - I'm sorry those did not make it into the catalog as they are all such wonderful works of art! I love how you scrapbook and stamp - something I still struggle with. All your creations are just wonderful!!!

These are just as pretty as the ones that made it into the catalog. I'm sure TAC had a tough time choosing which ones to use for this print. Great job & thanks for sharing!
