This Holiday Season…

My favorite col­ors are Red and Cream any­thing accented with Sil­ver Glit­ter, Rhine­stones and Jin­gle Bells… yep as you can see it is begin­ning to look a lot like Christ­mas in my 12 Days of Christ­mas Work­shop.

The last project will be fea­tured Novem­ber 28th but the work­shop will remain open until Decem­ber 15th. This should give every­one...

Rhinestones and Glitter…

As many of you know I love that com­bi­na­tion.… sparkly things make me so happy. Espe­cially around the hol­i­days. I love see­ing all the lights twin­kle, the glit­ter sparkle and the rhine­stones shimmer. This is a lit­tle sneak peek of what we will be mak­ing tomor­row in my work­shop while we await the arrival of Santa. Each Sat­ur­day evening Santa will visit the gallery to pick some­one who has been very cre­ative with their work­shop projects. Then Sun­day, I will announce who will receive a RAK of fab­u­lous Maya Road goodies. Oh the...

It really is…

all about those lit­tle details. I just can’t seem to leave a project alone. I have to keep adding and adding and adding… for example… See that lit­tle but­ton behind the pom pom… yep had to put it there or I wouldn’t be able to sleep… See the Plat­inum Stick­les around the edge of the tag and in the cen­ter of each let­ter and the dou­ble bow of red & white and brown & white twine… yep another had to do it. See the thread in the but­ton… had to have this too. So if you really want your projects to pop and have that added bit of umph…...

Fall is in the air…

Finally it feels a bit like fall here in Texas. Actu­ally almost had frost on the pump­kins a few morn­ings ago. Which just so hap­pens to be the inspi­ra­tion behind this card. Yes­ter­day, I had so much fun play­ing with some new stamp sets. They are by Pink Per­sim­mon. My three favorite stamp sets are the “Lit­tle Red Wagon”, “Ban­ner” Small and Large and “Car­ni­val Alpha” Small and Large too cute for words… so go take a look. Adorable I tell ya. I cre­ated this card using lots of my favorite prod­uct lines… Melissa Frances (How can you...
