Smile Sweet Heart Card

Jul 1, 2011

Here is a bright and cheery card I cre­at­ed using the Cocoa Daisy Main Kit “Urban Loft” and the “South Loop” Add On Kit. I’m lov­ing all the bright col­ors and designs on these flow­ers and accent­ed with self adhe­sive pearls which are includ­ed in the main kit, makes them even cuter. You all know how much I love pearls! Today, I will be cre­at­ing with some new CHA release prod­ucts for Maya Road which make me so hap­py, just wait until you see them… oh my good­ness did Car­o­line and Deb ever out do them­selves with this release. I think it’s my favorite ever. Then tonight, I will be edit­ing into the wee hours of the night, again. My Aunt would cringe if she saw my sleep sched­ule right now it’s worse than...

Jul 26, 2010

First let me say… yes, dreams do come true… check out what Maya Road now has.… GLITTER!!!! I have begged and begged and begged for Car­o­line to PLEASE make GLITTER well not only she and Deb make GLITTER I actu­al­l­ly got to help pick the col­ors. All I am going to say is it is super awe­some GLITTER and if you are a glit­ter lover like me you will LOVE this fine glit­ter. So after I fin­ished doing the hap­py dance we start­ed adding all the design teams projects. Our team ROCKS… those of you attend­ing will be so inspired after­ing see­ing what every­one has cre­at­ed. And about 5 hours lat­er we were done.… Love that I have a larg­er and taller Make-n-Take table (thanks Car­olyn)… tomor­row’s project is going to be fun and the give away...

A little Valentine Tutorial…

Jan 19, 2009

I guess you can tell I LOVE Maya Road. Seri­ous­ly love every­thing Deb and Car­o­line make and the great thing about their prod­ucts are they mix and match per­fect­ly. I always look at their coast­er albums and think they would make won­der­ful fab­ric pat­terns. Well need­ing a break from book projects yes­ter­day I decid­ed to use the bird pat­tern to cre­ate my own fab­ric embell­ish­ment. Talk about super EASY to make. Seri­ous­ly easy. This is the first piece of fab­ric any­thing I have ever sewn. Yes I got the sewing machine to sew on paper. Any­way, I thought I would cre­ate a lit­tle tuto­r­i­al think­ing you might like to give this a try. Sup­plies Need­ed: 2‑Ring Heart Binder (1 page) Sheer Heart Scal­lop Book (1 page) Heart Chip­board Book (1 page) Bird Chip­board Book...

Did you know…

Jan 9, 2009

Maya Road has a Valen­tine’s Day release? If you did­n’t you need to check out this cute lit­tle “Love Tick­et” Sin­gle­ton Stamp. I love that the words are seper­ate stamps too, so per­fect for lit­tle sen­ti­ments on tiny tags. Then they have this adorable “For­ev­er Postage” Sin­gle­ton Stamp. I real­ly love this trio… so per­fect to accent your Valen­tine’s or can­dy wrap­pers. They also have this won­der­ful Maya Mist set of Red and Sil­ver… gor­geous col­ors used sep­a­rate­ly or in com­bi­na­tion. The “Love Key­chain” set is so cute and has so many pos­si­bil­i­ties for projects… no favorite here as I love each one. And last but not least they have this real­ly cute “Key Key­chain” set. This set would also be cute as embell­ish­ments for a new home or car for those of you...
