Not being able to share…

Oct 7, 2007

is the PITS! Late­ly I have been work­ing on sev­er­al projects and I can­not share any of them just yet. This is tor­ture for me. I love to share my projects as soon as I fin­ish. But last night I did have fun mak­ing my own embell­ish­ment for a project and I can share this so here goes… I have nev­er used a die cut­ting sys­tem. I always cre­ate my own tem­plates, trace them onto paper, cut them out and go from there. I tell ya I am a very old fash­ioned kin­da girl when it comes to stuff like this not sure why… most like­ly it is because I am too picky and have to have every­thing just so so. Any­way, last night I decid­ed to play with my Big Shot Die Cut­ting Sys­tem I received in my MMM prize pack­age. Well let me just tell you now my head is swirling with ideas. That thing is so much fun. I used some shrink plas­tic by JudiKins, a Sizzix Siz­zl­its Snowflake #2 Die, Ranger Stick­les in Star Dust and a rhine­stone. This cute snowflake is going to be an embell­ish­ment for a mini album and believe me more will be made for hol­i­day projects, gift tags etc.

Embellished Shrink Plastic Snowflake

Last week was a great pub­li­ca­tion week. My Lit­tle Foof House, Fam­i­ly Mes­sage Board and Valen­tine’s Day Wall Hang­ing will all be in the Feb./Mar. issue of Paper Trends.

Three lay­outs… San­ta Baby, Yep… It’s March and Our Tree will be in the Win­ter issue of Scrap­book­ing and Beyond.

Don’t for­get to check out the MMM Blog. You will find a lot of great tips, ideas and lay­outs post­ed almost every­day. Today I post­ed a lit­tle project using one of the “Tis the Sea­son” stamps designed by Sande Krieger and some shrink plas­tic.

FYI… I am start­ing to fill my teach­ing cal­en­dar for 2008. If you would like me to come and teach at your local scrap­book store or retreat send me an e‑mail and I will see if a class can be sched­uled.
