Did you miss the last workshop?

Never fear - I will share the cards we made and more!

First let me show you the three cards we made at the workshop. I will only highlight a couple of cool little steps I taught. If you want to learn more details - please, contact me and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Let me point out - all cards have distressed parts! Yes, we always distress the edges of the cardstock! Use your scissors, your edge distressor. Use your sponge or sponge dauber. Distressing adds a lot more to your artwork.

 One of the gals asked me where I get my inspiration for the cards - I go to the internet, yes. But I also go to my previous idea books and I use our How to Books. I love to use them to get started and adjust the cards to what  need to do. They are well work their price! We have them for card makers and scrapbookers. You can't really tell in these pictures, but I used 3-d tape on all of my cards as well.

 One of the things I wanted to teach on the tie card was that - do not throw even the smallest piece of cs away! I used a sliver of background paper for under my buttons! It adds some color. I can always find a use for paper somewhere!

Don't you love this ribbon! The cricut makes cutting these ribbons out so easy! Our little booklets that come with the cartridges show you step by step how to fold these ribbons. Its 1-2-3 and they are put together!

Again, if you missed my classes - you can purchase the kits - contact me and I will be glad to help you out.


Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
