New online workshop “You R 2 Tweet”

Feb 20, 2010

This “You R 2 Tweet” mini banner is the fun project I taught at CHA-W in Anaheim this past January. The great thing about this online workshop is you don’t have to show up at 7:00 a.m. to start creating like I and everyone else had to do. You get to create this project in the comforts of your own home and on your own time. I tell ya not being a morning person sure did make that a tough time slot for a class but we all made the best of it (most with Starbucks in hand) and had a great time creating. This mini banner was created so everyone could finish the project in 90 min. which explains why I only used 3 pages from the Maya Road Mini 2-Ring Triangle Banner...

Easter Ornaments and Canvas Sampler Class Info

Feb 17, 2010

In this class you will create 6 adorable Easter Ornaments that are perfect to accent any Easter tree, gift bag or banner. These ornaments range in size from 3” to 4” and each front showcases an adorable vintage postcard image while the back of each ornament is simply covered with images of vintage sheet music. You will accent each ornament with a silk flower, self adhesive pearls, brown & white baker’s twine and buttons.

There will be lots of painting, sanding, glittering and gluing in this...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Feb 14, 2010

Little Red Wagon is one of my all time favorite stamp sets by Pink Persimmon. You will find a tag I created using this stamp set on page 66 in my book Delight In The Details. And the above card is a card I created last year (which just happens to be my all time favorite Valentine’s Day card) if it looks familiar to my long time blog readers. If you are new to my blog you can learn how to recreate this card here. I have been busy creating some adorable vintage inspired Easter Ornaments that can be used as either ornaments, tags or accents on a spring garland. This class will be taught in the morning on March 6th at Crop, Paper, Scissors in Waco. And the cool thing is you will...

It’s a Texas Winter Wonderland…

Feb 12, 2010

and I am loving it!!! Here are a few photos from around our house that I thought I would share. This is a record snowfall for us Dallas/Fort Worth Texans. Looking down and across the street while standing in our driveway. The birch tree in our back yard. These are trees in our front yard peeking over the backyard fence. This is a view of the landscaping in our backyard in front of our kitchen window. A view of our backyard taken while standing in front of the birch tree. As you can see this is going to be a perfect scrapbooking day. I will be finishing up my second class to be taught at Crop, Paper, Scissors in Waco, March 6th. This is really going to be a fun day. I will be...

What was I thinking?

Feb 11, 2010

Seriously, I had no idea I would have such a wonderful response over my book. I honestly put my heart and soul into each project and wrote in the hopes that you would feel like we were sitting at the kitchen table chatting. You all have been so incredibly wonderful and I thank you so much. This being said I had NO idea I would be so busy after I came home from CHA. My feet hit the floor running. Everyone that purchased a book from me… it is on the way so start stalking the mailman now. I have been answering email like crazy so if you sent me one and I have not responded as of yet please know I am answering them as quickly as I can. I am also designing...

Feb 5, 2010

This month on the Memory Makers blog they are offering a free project from my book “Delight In The Details“. It is my “Crepe Paper Rosette” tutorial. As you all know I LOVE creating crepe paper rosettes. I create them in many different sizes, love to use decorative scissors to create unique edges as well as accent the edges using Stickles. This tutorial will show you step by step how I make mine as well as show you a few examples of them used in projects.
