Fall 2015 workshops

Due to some Health reasons over the last little while I have had to play a little bit of catch up with my posts. So, here are some of the last few workshops I have had. These are the cards we made in October. I am listing all the materials you will need to make these cards. The Twinkle set is now retired. However, I may be able to get you another set from another consultant if you contact me ... :)

I also posted a video on this blog already on some alternative for one of the cards. Hopefully, you will check it out. Love to play around with different ways of making cards!

As you can see, I used the embossing folder on both cards.

If you look close at the cardstock, you will see, that I distressed it all by sponging all the edges. Sponging really gives it a finer edge. Yes, it takes a bit more time, but it really is worth it!

This gift card does not take much time, but it is a lot of fun to make and you can use this for a lot of occasions. Score at 2 3/4 on one end and 1 3/4 the other end - too easy!

You can find most of the supplies used at my website, some have been retired.

For now - have fun!


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!
