Blast from the Past

Posted by Micah at 9:15 AM
Here's a blast from my past... this is one of the first cards I designed myself (instead of just making what the demonstrator at an event made). It seems so long ago! I remember exactly when I made it too, it was at the Pincher Creek B&B scrapbooking weekend (my first and only, man I want to go back soooo badly!!). I scrounged the cardstock since I'd taken only scrap booking stuff to work on.

Garden Whimsey is the stamp set (I bought it after that weekend!) which is from Stampin' Up though now retired. I'm pretty sure that is Always Artichoke green in the background, then Almost Amethyst SU design paper and Barely Banana cardstock.

It's fun when you look back and go, "wow, I've come so far".

Edit to add: wow, I remember I used a hammer on the brads, that's why they look so squished.

ooh, I remember that set! It was one of my favorite SU! sets. Your use of colors is beautiful on this card. I can't seem to touch anything purple in my stash. Here it works beautifully! And I agree, it's always fun to look at how far we've come. :)

How fun that you could go back to your first card with such nice memories.

What a fun time going back in the past - and you did a great job considering you were "on your own" and not doing the demo card! Awesome!

What a great card, how much fun is it to look back at what we did and where we are today.

I think it's great! Love those flowers too. I don't even want to THINK about what my card looked like......I know it was nowhere near this pretty!
