Here are some sneak peeks of the items I will be teach­ing dur­ing the Cocoa Daisy Des­ti­na­tions Mykonos 2010 event.

While mak­ing this make-n-take spon­sored by Maya Road and Ranger you will get to play with Maya Mists, Chip­board, Stamps, Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Paints and Stick­les.

Keep an open mind all my vintage friends…

Jun 17, 2010

as this is very dif­fer­ent from my nor­mal style by a long shot BUT paint­ing sure has rest­ed my shoul­der and it is feel­ing much bet­ter. Only I would end up with a scrap­ping injury. So here is what I have been work­ing on and am so glad I can final­ly share. This album uses Maya Road prod­ucts from their Sum­mer release as well as lots of Maya Mists and Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Paints. Love these paints so much. This project will be a class at The Crafty Scrap­per some­day in the near future… just need to fig­ure out when. This album includes pho­tos of my dad, mom, me and my hus­band Alan. See I was not kid­ding… very dif­fer­ent from what I usu­al­ly...

What a fun weekend…

Jun 14, 2010

This past week­end was filled with loads of fun at The Crafty Scrap­per. I taught three sold out class­es, 2 — Dia­monds Are A Girls Best Friend and 1 — Tus­cany and Ros­es. I actu­al­ly remem­bered to bring my cam­era AND take some pho­tos. Although I must admit I for­got to take pho­tos of the first class. I get so wrapped up in teach­ing and laugh­ing that my cam­era is the last thing i think about BUT I put the cam­era in my apron for the 2nd and 3rd class and made myself remem­ber. So here are a few pho­tos of all the fun being had. This is Fri­day nights Tus­cany and Ros­es Class And here are pho­tos from Sat­ur­days Dia­monds Are A Girls Best Friend Class. AND… since so many were not able...

Summer Flowers

Jun 4, 2010

Here are some flow­ers I cre­at­ed using paper flow­ers from the Pri­ma Flow­ers Wild­flower Pil­lar Pack in White. I made these the same way I cre­at­ed these.  Once I fin­ished cre­at­ing the flow­ers I mist­ed them using Maya Road Maya Mist Lime Green Metal­lic, Turquoise Metal­lic and Plum Metal­lic. I think these are per­fect accents for any sum­mer lay­out or project. The Crafty Scrap­per has all of the prod­ucts I used if you need to order online. Just send Car­olyn an email telling her I sent you her way and she will get you all fixed up. Have a great...

Having fun with paints

Jun 1, 2010

I have been play­ing around with a new style that is so funky and whim­si­cal and I am real­ly lov­ing it. Paint­ing seems to be less stress­ful on my shoul­der so I am work­ing in this medi­um for a bit. You will notice I still includ­ed my favorites… vin­tage ledger paper and sheet music as well as a beau­ti­ful vin­tage rhine­stone but­ton. It has been fun ven­tur­ing out­side of my com­fort zone. The paints I used  are by Clau­dine Hell­muth and I think they are awe­some. The col­ors are won­der­ful and the con­sis­ten­cy of each bot­tle  is per­fect. Her paints are super creamy. I used the end of my paint­brush to make the pol­ka dots, a cof­fee mug to cre­ate the white cir­cles, an old sten­cil I had for the num­bers. A char­coal pen­cil...
