Passover Place Cards
As some of you know I'm home for Passover. It is always nice to go home, especially for holidays. I linked the word Passover if you're curious about the holiday, but basically it is holiday spent around the dinner table reciting prayers and talking about Jewish History. It also means a day of cooking and cleaning. It's always chaotic around here for Holidays and this one is no different.
We are having 17 people for dinner and my mom gave everyone tasks. Mine was to make the place cards. I had a lot of fun picking a spring palette from American Crafts (of course, right?). I stamped the Hebrew words in Real Red from SU!. The stamp is from Tin Can Mail from the LSS (that's why I don't have a link). The American Crafts paper and ribbon is from their 'Spring and Summer' collection. I printed everyones name with 'CK Letter Home'.
It was a lot of fun making them, but I got a tinch OCD with the ribbon. Ugh, I am a real perfectionist when it comes to a knot. If you have ever wanted to learn how to tie a 'stampers knot' you should check out Kwerner's video tutorial.
Classes will be over Tuesday, but finals don't end until next Tuesday. It feels so good to be almost done and I can't wait for my summer to begin! This summer means a trip to Russia, the LSAT, a New England trip, a Help-Elyssa-Find-The-Perfect- Law-School-Trip, working at the LSS, interning with a judge and hopefully relaxing and stamping!!!! What'd ya think!?! Am I lucky or what....I just have to survive finals!
Also, I have been stamping up a storm here, so get excited for lots of great LPS, SU! and more cards :)
I am a full-time student! I have been scrapbooking since I was 12 years old but have only recently become a stamper. I am always looking for design teams, so if my work interests you please contact me.
