A new online Class is coming…

Jun 19, 2009

The sen­ti­ment “Home Sweet Home” can make you think of many things… spe­cial items in your home a spring gar­den and most impor­tant­ly those spe­cial peo­ple and pets. This project high­lights all of the spe­cial things that help make our home a “Home Sweet Home”. Show­cased in my album are pho­tos of my brother’s trum­pet, fam­i­ly mem­bers, flow­ers from our gar­den, Son­ny and Buster our spe­cial canine com­pan­ions as well as a few fam­i­ly quotes. In this four day altered class we will be alter­ing a Maya Road Town­house and Mini Album using a faux mosa­ic cre­at­ed from 4 beau­ti­ful Webster’s Pages pat­terned papers. Then accent the house and album with lots of Maya Road prod­ucts such as their Vin­tage Sequins Edg­ing, Pom Pom Trim, Dou­ble Stitched Vel­vet, Blos­soms, Jew­el Pins, But­tons and Rubons....

Happy National Scrapbook Day…

May 2, 2009

Today I final­ly get to debut my “Vin­tage Sam­pler”. This is the first of many free online work­shops I plan to share. For those of you who do not know about this work­shop you can check it out here. Here is a lit­tle snip­pet of my thoughts behind the cre­ation of this project. I want­ed to cre­ate a project that incor­po­rat­ed items that remind­ed me of home as well as the strong fam­i­ly bond most of us share. I decid­ed a vin­tage sam­pler would be the per­fect project to accom­plish this task. The let­ter “P” sym­bol­izes my fam­i­ly name, the milk cap sym­bol­izes how we as fam­i­lies nour­ish each oth­er, the but­tons and pearls sym­bol­ize how we mend each oth­ers spir­its dur­ing dif­fi­cult times, the vin­tage flocked flow­ers sym­bol­ize how fam­i­lies help each oth­er...

What a fun weekend…

Oct 13, 2008

This week­end I stayed in Wax­a­hachie with some of the Maya Road girls… Car­o­line, Jes­si­ca, Aubrey and Wendy. I got­ta tell you, Wendy taught some of the most inspir­ing class­es all day Sat­ur­day and all day Sun­day at the Crafty Scrap­per. If you ever see that Wendy Vec­chi is com­ing to a store near you I say run and sign up as fast as you can. You do NOT want to miss any of her class­es. Wendy is the first per­son I have ever tak­en a class from and I want more. She taught me so many great tech­niques that I plan on car­ry­ing over into future projects. Thanks Wendy for all the inspi­ra­tion. This lit­tle album is one I cre­at­ed in Wendy’s Frag­ments class. Wendy has you bring scraps of paper, rubons and...

Sprucin’ up the place…

Jul 5, 2008

The but­tons run all the way down the front of her skirt and look so pret­ty when the light hits them. I think the lit­tle bird rest­ing on some moth­er of pearl but­tons looks as though she is telling a few of our fam­i­ly secrets.
