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. If you choose, the vin­tage images can be accent­ed with Dia­mond Stick­les and the scroll frames can be accent­ed using Plat­inum Stick­les. I will show you how to accent dan­gling chan­de­lier pieces using Cop­ic mark­ers which can be pur­chased at Crop-Paper-Scis­sors if you wish to accent your orna­ments. 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...

Free project tutorial from my book…

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. Crepe Paper Rosettes are won­der­ful accents for cards, tags, lay­outs, home decor projects etc. Any­place you want to add a flower in my opin­ion is the per­fect spot for a crepe paper rosette. You will also notice prod­ucts in the projects shown from a few of my many...

My Baby is Here!

Feb 2, 2010

And final­ly I get to show her off. I now know how an ele­phant feels being preg­nant for two years… poor things. Two years is a very long time when you are wait­ing for some­thing awe­some. So here is the front and back cov­ers (still can­not believe these pho­tos were tak­en on my table) and sneak peeks of a few of the 100 projects inside. Front Cov­er Back Cov­er Inside you will find wall hang­ings and ban­ners of all sizes Lay­outs and Tags (notice my friend Wendy Vec­chi’s But­ter­fly Stamp and the gor­geous Jen­ni Bowl­in papers) One of my favorite lay­outs (love Maya Road Chip­board) You will also find lots of cards (notice anoth­er one of Wendy’s stamps, that leaf is so fun to work with) Sev­er­al dif­fer­ent sized mini albums (Maya Road binder...
