So many things….

7 May

Ooh I have been so busy!  I work 3 days a week at the best store in the world.  If I haven’t bragged in a while, I work at the local craft store in our area, Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames-Grass Valley. I work in the Paper Arts department and I have recently started teaching classes. We have free classes during the week and on Saturdays.  I teach the Saturday classes.

Head on over to our Facebook page and LIKE us!!  Be sure and let them know Jeannie sent you over while you are there!!

But, I also teach classes that you can sign up for(that you have a fee for) and I have been getting some great feedback from the ladies taking the classes so far. HOORAY!!

Today I taught my Mad about Mary Card Class.  Here were the main cards..

The cards you see here are my samples and what is so awesome about them is each one has a handwritten sentiment on it.  For my class the sentiments were computer generated, but they turned out just as cute.  It seems I have a lot of bosses at my job, but my direct boss, is the MOST AMAZING ARTIST,….well, outside of Mary….Linsdsay about takes the cake!  Go take a look at her blog to see what I’m talking about.  Her name is Lindsay Ostrom.  She is the one who has handwritten all my sentiments, how lucky am I???

Also this month….Clear Scraps has revealed their new Kit…and let me tell you…WOW is it a good one!

Wednesday WOWZER Time Again!!

28 Dec

How are you today?

Today I have such a fun idea for you.

I have used the new set called Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea.

I LOVE..LOVE…LOVE this set!

Here is what I came up with, it is a tag since I intend to enter this in the GIFT WRAPPING CHALLENGE on THE UNITY STAMP CHALLENGE  blog.

The tag is inside one of CANVAS CORP’s Mini Bags.

When you pull the bag off, inside is this delightful tag that can double as a bookmark.

Here is a close up.

The branch is from the DEVOTED set and the phrase is from the NEW SEASON, NEW WONDER set.

What do you think of the new set, Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea?

If you want to see the other new sets…click here for the fun!!

They are all fabulous!

Now…a favor?

Head on over to I Heart {ippity} we have such creative gals!

Have a great day and remember this is the season of giving, not the season of stress and greed!  Relax and enjoy and don’t get caught up in the worldly view of this season.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

I will be entering this card in the GIFT WRAPPING CHALLENGE on THE UNITY STAMP CHALLENGE.  Wish me luck:)

How are you today?

Today I have such a fun card for you!

I have used the set called Because of You and I am using a sketch from

The Sweetest Thing.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on the sketch. (I rotated the sketch one turn to the right)

I don’t know what it is about mushrooms..they just make me smile!

I just went with colors and prints that made me happy for this card.

I hope it makes you smile too!
