Actually I wish the cardstock sticker said “weekend” as it was such a fun one. Friday night, I taught my “Quilted Memories” class at The Crafty Scrapper. I left a few kits with Carolyn if you would like one. Just give her a call at the store: 972–923-3151. My friend Lisa E. joined me at the store which is always fun. We’ve been friends going on 11 years. She is my scrapping buddy. I had some super fun ladies in class and hope to see them again soon because we sure did laugh a lot. After the class was finished Lisa and I stayed and laughed with Carolyn (the owner). The girl cracks me up and is always entertaining.
Saturday, Lisa E. and I went to GASC in Arlington to see Carolyn’s awesome booth. I tell ya that girl has everything you could ever want in scrapbooking and lots of cool things for altered art. I got to see several people who I usually only see at CHA. Jenni Bowlin and her husband Jared were there with a booth. While Jenni taught her class, Jared ran the booth– and very well, I might add. Wendy Vecchi was there with Stampers Anonymous. She gave me a surprise that I cannot WAIT to play with, but you will have to wait to see is at CHA-S. And I got to say a quick hi to Vicki Chrisman with Crafty Secrets while she was doing make-n-takes. It’s always so nice to catch up with friends.
Ok, about this card. Love this flower and I think you will too. It is super easy to make. I punched 6 circles out of patterned paper, then folded each one like a cone. I used a bone folder to get a crisp edge on each fold, but you do not have to do this if you want to have the folds pop up a bit. I then inked and distressed the edges of each folded circle, arranged them as I wanted and attached them to the card. The flower center is made using Gold UTEE, Mold-n-Pour, a Vintage Button and Diamond Stickles.
Thursday evening is the first day of Paper Cowgirl and I cannot wait to meet everyone. It’s going to be an awesome weekend. Friday, I teach my “Pieces of Time” class. I’ll have a handmade surprise as well as giveaways for each of my students. It’s gonna be a fun class.
