South Hill Designs & Stampin’ Up! Sunday Diamond Locket Card
Today I have a rather passionate video regarding why I joined South Hill Designs, so if you’d like to skip ahead to that, please feel free to jump down to the bottom for the video, but I’ve decided that I wanted to share why I joined Stampin’ Up! here for you too.
In the beginning, I simply wanted to buy my craft supplies at a discount. I’d been enjoying exhibiting at craft fayres and was doing well selling my bags, boxes and notebooks. But pretty much as soon as I joined, I found that my opportunities to attend those craft fayres dried up. My husband works shifts and with 4 quite young children (my youngest wasn’t even 2 then), I didn’t really want to have to get someone else sit for them for a whole day.
However, with the first few YouTube videos that I put online, I found that I got as much thrill from sharing and inspiring others as I did from selling a card or box. And that’s still the same now.
Of course, I now earn an income from my business, but that’s kind of a biproduct of the overwhelming desire to share!
And as far as sharing goes, I’m not one of those who shares a lot about myself on social media, but sharing projects feels like I am. They’re each a bit of me, so I guess I do share!
Anyway, today’s card, to go along with the pretty locket that I made, is a simple 3×3″ card with a 2×2″ panel on the front offset to make a diamond shape. Stamping with Garden in Bloom in Smoky Slate was a great backdrop alongside the Silver Glimmer Paper
I love the new Silver Cord that’s coming with the new seasonal catalogue, and simply added some tiny flowers to it.
Simple is me, and I have no problem with that!
