Calling All Scrapbookers.......I'm starting a Scrapbooking class!

Here's the 2 page spread you will get if you come to my new "Scrapbooking" Crop/workshop. Class #1 will be May 15th from 7-10pm. Class includes a 2 page 12x12 spread like you see above using the "Best Yet" Simply Scrappin Kit found in the current SU catalog. You will also get use of my big shot, circle scissors plus, and all other cutting tools that I have. Snacks will also be provided as well as all supplies to make the 2 pages above. Bring your own scrapbooking supplies to crop with for the 3 hours as well as your own adhesive. A few spots left open for this 1st time Scrapbooking class so don't delay- sign up today!

Techniques class- Watercoloring and Stenciling

New Decor Elements stenciling

Aqua painters make a great way to watercolor

The Techniques class is ready! Here are the last 2 techniques- Watercoloring and stenciling. Still spots open if you would like to come April 24th at 7pm or 25th at 11am. Class is $12 and we're making 5 cards using 5 different techniques. Email me for more information at

Upcoming Classes Samples

First 2 cards from the "Embellish Me" card class

These are the 8 cards we will be making at the "Summer Love Rub-Ons" class

So this weekend I planned to make up samples for my upcoming classes. I got a few things done as well as a complete re-organization of my stamp area (it really needed that). I will keep posting as I get class samples done- there will be class signups at the house for each upcoming class! You can also email me to RSVP to reserve your spot. Thanks for looking. Enjoy!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Ladies! Hope you are all having a great day with your friends and families.

What a big helper!

I just had to post this one..............I sat on the chair in the living room tonight while watching tv putting together the rest of the Easter Cards i'm mailing out to my family. I brought everything up in a stamp box to keep the supplies together- Apparently it was in Scotch's way so he layed his head on it. I just thought he looked so cute :)

Weekly creations!

Here's what I have gotten done in the last few days. I bought this great pale at Michaels and took the level 1 hostess Decor Elements flower and put it down the side. I am getting so many punch cards now that they do not all fit in my pink money keeper so I thought this would be a cute way to display them on my desk.

You can earn one of these great Decor Elements pieces by hosting a workshop and having $150 or more in sales! Email me today for available April and May dates!

Also, the first picture is actually a card for a swap I am in with some friends this coming weekend. I decided to try breying over the textured Big Shot image...........pretty cool effect.

Techniques Class Samples

Here are some of the project for the April 24th and 25th techniques class I will be having. These are 3 of the 5 techniques. Bleaching, Braying and color Spritzing. Spots still open for Friday night and Saturday morning classes- email me to sign up at
