Confessions and Questions



I have a confession to make. I, Kelly Lunceford, have *NEVER* ever used Pacific Point in a finished card until today. I have never even opened it until last week when I made a super ugly card that I threw away. This is the first time a piece of Pacific Point cardstock has ever been cut into at my house. I bought Muirfield DSP because it had Pacific Point in it and thought that would inspire me to use it. No...it didn't. I have used it quite a bit, but have only stamped the other colors in it. What is it about Pacific Point that makes me shy? I don't know. I also have never used Tangerine Tango on a finished card either. It has only been used on one other ugly card, too!I guess one of my New Year's goals should be to use both of these colors more. Like I mentioned before, I needed two more thank you cards. This is the last design that I need and I decided to incorporate the star theme from today's WT challenge on this card also. I even stamped them in pacific point! Yay for me!
Now for the question. How do I get my blog posts to get emailed out on the day that I post them? I went to feedblitz and had it check every hour for new posts, but it still is sending them the next day. I am super frustrated, but I am crossing my fingers that there is an easy fix. If you know, please leave me a comment in simple terms that a non-computer girl could understand! Thank you!
Funny story...well not funny for my finger. So...I bought a photo tent ages ago and I *NEVER* use it...I just can't get my photos to look right. Anyway...I decided to try it again today because I am tired of it collecting dust. It worked pretty good. I used it on the card above. While I was photographing my card, I noticed a speck of dirt that I brushed away. I then went to adjust my card, then I noticed an annoying red speck which I went to brush away. All of a sudden as I am noticing all of the red I am smudging all over the inside of my photo tent do I realize my finger is stinging pretty badly. I look down and see blood oozing out of my finger so now I have it all over the inside of my photo tent. Ughhh....the little black speck was a shard of metal that slivered it's way into my finger! So...now I have an Elmo band-aid on my finger as I am typing! LOL! And...I had to throw the liner to my photo tent into the washing machine. Hopefully it is machine washable and the blood comes out! Oh the adventures of a paper crafter! Thanks for fluttering by!

I can't help you with feedblitz as mine does the exact same thing.

This card is adorable. I love the stacked bugs and the Pacific Point looks fantastic! I have to admit that I've used more Tangerine Tango than Pacific Point.

I hope your photo tent comes clean. Ouch! We only have Hot Wheels bandaids and I have to remember to buy "adult" ones because the kids don't like me to use theirs.

Let me be the first to say...no need for you to shy away from Pacific Point. This card is adorable!! *Love* it!! Thanks for sharing!! ps..I have only used 1 sheet of Pacific Point. :)

If the blood doesn't come out the first time, DON'T DRY IT, and put some hydrogen peroxide on it. My husband used to get bloody noses all the time, in all sorts of locations. Once he gushed all over our car. Well, I got that blood out with Hydrogen Peroxide, so I know it can get some smudges!! ;) Sorry for your finger, and love your card!!!!

Hi Kelly, I left a comment for this adorable card on your last card - sorry I'm a spazz. You are cranking out such fab creations and I love that you are using retired SU stamps and giving them new looks! Fun!!!

This is such a cute card, but I have to admit, I am with you on the Pacific Point. I LOVE blue, but that color is a toughie! Love what you've done with it here, now let's see what you can come up with for the Tangerine! :D

Love your fun card with Pacific Point, but you make me chuckle! I have never opened my PP paper or ink and I was just wondering if I EVER would -- LOL!!! Maybe I should order some DP to match, then they can all sit together and collect dust -- LOL!!! And too funny about your tent (not your finger, tho). I have coffee stains on my tent and it never crossed my mind to throw it in the washer -- DUH!!! LOL!!! Hope yours came out OK!!!

Wow, six months without using any Pacific Point cs at all? I have to admit this is one colour I haven't used a lot, either. Not that I don't like it - I'm a big fan of blues. I just think it's such a strong colour, it is hard to pair with others without overpowering them... I think you did good using it here. I wish I had gotten those papers before they retired on us, I really like them.

Tango Tangerine, though, I have used a lot! More than I would have thought - didn't know I was an orange kind of gal. Always used to reach for blue and green before... Is that what evolving feels like?!
