After looking through my Stampin' Success, (which is a monthly magazine for demos)  I knew I just had to make some.

Here's a view of the set of coasters in the gift box.  What a great gift for a friend or family member.

Scrapbook Pages For Product Challenge At Stampin Addicts

When Holly Krautkrmer sent me a message a couple of months ago and ask me to be on the design team for the Scrapbook Challenges over at Stampin Addicts I was sooo excited! Today's post is what I came up with for the product challenge for May. I was to pick a product from a list she gave me and use it on my pages. I chose to use the gel pen. I got my smooth lines by putting a piece of thread down and looping it around like I wanted as my design, then followed along beside it with the White Gel Pen. Worked great! If you'd like to join in on some challenges or visit the gallery over at Stampin' Addicts here is the link: You don't have to be a demo to join.
