Glittered Roses Artisan Week

2 Dec

This week I am the featured ARTISAN on Glittered Roses Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Glittered-Roses/278487808854550

Glittered Roses creates and supports handmade. When you know the creator, you know the passion. When you know the passion you know the care it took. Promoting partners in such a diverse community rather it be a retailer that provides products or an individual who does the construction, highlighting the unique aspect of handmade businesses through social media is a great way to bring information forward. This week you will have an opportunity to take a look at my business and the crafts the I create by hand. Be sure and stop by Deirdre’s page and let her know I sent you.

I do have to say I am more of a crafter for giving than for financial gain.  I have yet to figure out how to make it all work to make money doing what I love.  But, I am here today to show you some of the past thing’s I’ve recently done.  I am mainly a paper crafter, and oh boy do I love paper!!

These are some Sugar Plum Fairy Baby’s First Birthday card I did .

Cards are easy to personalize for people, even over the internet.

I am lucky enough to work a craft store in the area  live in.   It is called Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames.  It has been owned by the same family since their opening, 40 years ago.

You should visit our Facebook Page.  Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames-Grass Valley

These are some Washi Tape Cards I am going to teach a class on after the 1st of the year.

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.

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???

Hello Crafty Ones!
I am here to show you my I Heart Ippity project, hooray:)
I have used a lot of different stamp sets for this;)
The polka dot gift bag, I picked up over at Deena Ziegler.com.
I made a heart shrinky dink with some Grafix Arts Red Shrink Film.
Inside my gift bag is a candy filled tube of M & M’s.
Plastic tube and papers are from my workplace, Ben Franklin Crafts in Grass Valley, CA.
Now to let you know all the stamps I used, get ready….
What do you think?  Wouldn’t you love to get a Valentine like this?
I hope I have “WOW”ed you today!  Thank for stopping by and visiting.

Thankful Thursday

Today’s post, you will not read any complaints from me.
I have made some Thank-you cards to hand out to some dear friends who have touched my heart.
For that reason, this will be a thankful post and I hope to get through this with no complaining whatsoever.
I made 4 cards, they are all somewhat similar, with slight variations.
They all have this sentiment inside.
The first part is a stamps from the Unity May 2012 Love in an Instant set.
The 2nd part is just words I printed out from my computer.
It was my birthday on Sunday and I had some friends who went over and above their call of duty in recognizing that it was my birthday. So these cards are for those friends who I wanted to say thank you to.
Each card is different, in the way the borders are done.
Some have patterned paper,
some have washi tape and some have border stickers.
Here they are all lined up.
I love making a group of cards together
.
Its a great way to get a lot of people takes care of at one time, and by just mixing your embellishments, you can easily make each card unique so they do not end up looking exactly the same.
So did I make it with out complaining?  I hope so!!
The set I used to were
