A new class coming up for me…..

14 May

I have another class coming up at Ben Franklin.

This one is coming up quick.

The date is Tuesday May 28th, 2013.  The time is from 10:00am to 12:00 noon.

The cost will be $22.00 for 4 12 x 12 pages. (That translates to 2 complete 2 page layouts, all paper supplies included)

Not included are the following.

SCISSORS, ADHESIVES, FOAM DOTS, DIMENSIONAL FOAM, GLUE DOTS, DISTRESSING INKS AND SPONGES ACRYLIC PAINT FOR DOTS.

Because of time constraints, it is best to do distressing and paint dots at your leisure, at a later time, namely at home.

Without further ado, here are the pages we will be doing.

So, what do you think?  Are you interested in coming?  What about a Kit?

You can order a Kit for $20.00.  If you don’t live by me you just pay for the kit plus shipping, it’s that easy!!

I have based the layouts of course on the lovely Mary Engelbreit.  But I also love the art of  Lauren Child.  I love how she mixes pictures of  real objects with her drawings and art.

That’s what I have done with these layouts.  Some of the items are actual pictures mixed with die cuts and other things.  I just love how everything turned out and I hope you like these layouts too.

If you want to sign up for the class to take from me at Ben Franklin,

Call: (530) 273-1348.

Let them know you want to sign up for a class and they will direct you to the right department.

If you want to order a kit, send me a message at:

jmdegruc@yahoo.com.

I will need a mailing address to quote your shipping.

That’s it for today!

Thanks for stopping by.

Wednesday Wowzer, Bee-Lieve it!

10 Oct
It is Wednesday and here I am with my WOWZER for you!!
I am using the {ippity} set called BETTER TOGETHER.
I have used this set many times and love that you can make up your own sayings for it,
therefore the set can be used for EVERYTHING!
On the inside I made my own “honeycomb” strawberry.
I attached a phrase I had leftover to turn this into a cheerful type card.
Here is a side look at my 3-D strawberry :)
Bright and colorful, perfectly representing many of my favorite things!
Red…polka dots..cherries…
There you have it, my a Wowzer for this Wednesday!
I hope you have enjoyed my creation for today.

Farewell Cheery Lynn, You’ve Rocked My World

28 Sep
Hello everyone, Jeannie here with my last post for Cheery Lynn Designs.
I have been with these guys for a couple of years and I will miss working with Mike and BJ.
Obviously this card is dedicated to them.
Cheery Lynn Designs was my first Manufacture Design Team, so I have a lot of gratitude for them helping me get my name out there.
You can’t see behind the Celtic Whimsy Band, but I’ve got a portion of the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody behind it.  I needed something behind it to make it stand out a little more.
So Mike and Bj…this is it..our time is over..your crazy designer, that made things like no one else did.
Your crazy, whimsical girl!

On the wings of …. a Butterfly!

14 Sep
Anyone else remember that song?  “On the Wings of Love”?
Hardly the inspiration for my card, but the title hit me when I was getting ready to write this post.
On the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog our new challenge this week is Borders and Edgers.
I tried to incorporate that theme into my card today.
I am still using my New Release dies and still very much in love with them all.
I love how colorful this is.  I think it fits the saying perfectly.

Halloween is Almost Here???

12 Sep
Can you believe there is only a month and a half until Halloween?
Where is this year going?
Today I made a cute little Halloween treat box using the new {ippity} set called Halloween Greetings.
I filled a Clear Acetate Pillow box, from Joy’s Life.com, with Candy Corn and decorated the outside with the stamped image and other things to match the stamp and the season.
The adorable die of the Witches legs is from Cottage Cutz.
Wouldn’t these be cute as table decorations or party handouts?
Did I WOW you?  I hope so, or I’m not doing my job!!!
You better start thinking about Halloween, it is fast approaching!  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a wonderful day!

Why is this caged bird singing?

31 Aug
Did you get my reference to the famous book?
I am still having a ton of fun with dies from the August New Release.
The new dies I have used on the card are Bird Cage, Hummingbird, Celtic Whimsy and Embellishment #2.
Dies that are not from the new release are Scalloped Rectangle’s, and Mini Fanciful Flourish.
I am so impressed with the intricate pattern of the Celtic Whimsy.  It cut easily and is such an impressive pattern.  This is easily one of my new favorites.
I also love the new Bird Cage.  What a gorgeous design.
Have you had a chance to head on over to our Challenge blog?
I just peeked and we are up to 41 entries already!  WOW, it’s not even the weekend yet.
The theme is anything goes.  Remember you do need to use a Cheery Lynn Designs dies in your project/card to qualify, but still anything goes?  What have you got to lose?
Have a great weekend!  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s Cheery Lynn Designs post.

I Love You card with Cheery Lynn Designs New Release dies

24 Aug
Hello Everyone…This is Jeannie with a beautiful card to show off some of the new release of Cherry Lynn Designs dies.
In the top left corner I have used the new Butterfly Out die.
The bird on the branch is a combination of the new Hummingbird die and Embellishment #2 set.
The delicate flower is made from the Build a Flower #2 Plate.
I’ve embellished some of the flowers and the butterfly with some i-rocks from Imaginisce, leftover from our fun joint swap with them.
My card is based on a design and products from a kit from Deena Ziegler.
I hope you have enjoyed my creation today.  I live for making these weekly creations, I really do!
Cheery Lynn Designs are magical to work with and this new release, WOW!!  That about says it all!
Have a great weekend, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana posting for Cheery Lynn Designs.

Wednesday Wowzer {ippity} Time

22 Aug
Today I have a fun card I have made with a special friend in mind to give this to.
This is for a friend who lives locally and works harder than most women I know.
She is quiet and has been known to hide behind produce to avoid talking to people, but I can say I have been lucky enough to go out to Ice Cream with her, so it’s safe to say, we are beyond the hiding behind the produce stage:)
I am using the set called SIMPLY HOME for this card.  While making this card, I thought of my friend Brooke, for so many reasons.  She runs her own farm, she posts the most hilarious things sometimes about her adventures on the farm, she works with the local search and rescue team(I don’t know if I got the term right, sorry), she is a wonderful cook, a wonderful mom, wife and a devoted and loving daughter of god.
The phrase on the card says “Life is Simple.”  I thought of that, and physically life in far from simple for Brooke.  But it is important for you to know, that she is the kind of person that would tell you that if you just break life down to the basics, such as Living for and Loving God and finding Joy in something every day, then you could say that yes, “Life is Simple.” ….and that is why this card inspired me to think and write about Brooke and make this just for her!
So there you have it..a little peek into the life of someone I know!
I’ll give this to her as is…so she can just have it in her home, or if she feels like giving it someone at some point..she can!
I hope you liked my story…
Special kudos goes to Cheery Lynn Designs for the dies I used on this card also!

Bon Voyage – Farewell Card

22 Aug
Hello Everyone!
It is me Jeannie with a very Fun – Farewell card today.  To begin with I am using Mojo Monday’s Sketch # 255, and I will be entering this card in their challenge.  HOORAY!
PLUS…..over on Joy’s Life.com
we are all putting our CRI-KITS to good use this week.  
I am using pens from the Reg. Neon set.

I am using the stamp set called Pun in the Sun from Joy’s Life.
 
The little boat is from the Cricut Cartridge Life is a Beach.
 
This is the inside of the card.  I have also used dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and My Favorite Things.
Here is a close up of the area where the CRI-KITS pen was used.  It really does make a gorgeous background for this card.
 
 
Here is a close up of those fabulous Joy’s Life stamps!!

Time for Halloween yet?

17 Aug
It’s hard to even think about Halloween time. Before you know it we will be making Christmas cards etc too.  In this last batch of New Release dies, there were a couple of dies for Halloween and I thought I’d pair them with some I already had and I came up with this fun card.
I embossed my card background with Leaves Embossing Plate.
The dies I am using from the new releases are CREEPY GATE and PUMPKIN SWAG.
The black cat and tree are a set called SCARE ME and the moon is made from the center of the SUNFLOWER die.
The cloud is a stamp that I stamped and cut out.
I think that the card turned out so cut and not too spooky! What do you think?
 I am having a lot of fun with the new release of dies.
I hope to have time to play with the flowers this next week.
