It’s a BeaUTEEful day over here…

Jan 24, 2011

(I think I just saw some eye­rolls, but real­ly how cute is the word BeaU­TEE­ful? Talk about mak­ing a super cute t‑shirt… and I would wear it!) Ok on to some projects. This was a sim­ple brown box that a neck­lace came in and I turned it into this using these prod­ucts … Vin­tage Pho­to Dis­tress Ink, Blend­ing Tool, Jet Black Archival Ink, two Wendy Vec­chi Stu­dio 490 Stamps (Script & Flower), Emboss­ing Ink, Mold-n-Pour, Clear UTEE, Heat Gun, Non-Stick Craft Mat, Plat­inum Stick­les, Heavy Weight White Card­stock, Seam Bind­ing and Foam Squares. From start to fin­ish this took no more than 30 min. And I also made this sweet tee­ny tiny house cov­ered it in UTEE (did you real­ly think I would­n’t?) then altered trees, trims and a ban­ner. The entire piece is...

Seek Joy

Jan 20, 2011

I was asked to cre­ate a few things for Ranger to dis­play at CHA. One of the prod­ucts they want­ed me to cre­ate with was their Ultra Thick Emboss­ing Enam­el (UTEE). I had not real­ly played around with this all that much but let me tell you I now have a seri­ous addic­tion… real­ly, if you have not cre­at­ed with this you need to give it a try. It is FUN and comes in sev­er­al dif­fer­ent col­ors. I used their Plat­inum, Black and Gold to cre­ate this wall hang­ing. Sup­plies Used: UTEE — Black, Plat­inum, Gold, Clear, Plat­inum & Crys­tal Stick­les, Dis­tress Emboss­ing Ink, Maya Road Philadel­phia Upper­case Chip­board Alpha­bet, Maya Road William Mini Chip­board Alpha­bet, Per­fect Medi­um, Per­fect Pearls — Per­fect Pearl, Per­fect Pearls Mist — Per­fect Pearl, Heavy White Card­stock, Archival Ink...

Money Envelope

Dec 13, 2010

I cre­at­ed this mon­ey enve­lope using this tuto­r­i­al cre­at­ed by Wendy Vec­chi of Stu­dio 490. I did have to sub­sti­tute a few things since I did­n’t have all the stamps she used or one of the Dis­tress Ink col­ors. I must admit it’s nice step­ping out of your com­fort zone every once in awhile and stamp­ing is cer­tain­ly step­ping out for me. It’s scary as I can­not get over the every­thing needs to be per­fect stuff but I am try­ing. Oh and let me fill you in on a lit­tle secret… today is my super sweet friend Wendy’s birth­day. I think she is cel­e­brat­ing some­thing like her 25th. I don’t know I could be wrong but I know I’m not off by far. So when you go over to check out her awe­some tuto­r­i­al make sure you...

No Stress Just Work…

Oct 24, 2010

This will be my new mot­to told to me by a sweet friend for the next six months as I will begin work­ing on my SECOND book tomor­row. I am so hap­py I have been giv­en the chance to work with F & W Media once again. My new book will be tech­nique based just as “Delight In The Details” but it will have step outs on how to recre­ate not only the tech­niques but ALSO some of the projects. So excit­ed about this new twist. My first dead­line is Novem­ber 26th so i will be some­what of a her­mit over the next month as these projects will be for the cov­er and I want them over the top won­der­ful. Not sure if I can tell you the theme of the book just yet...

Show day 2

Jul 28, 2010

Today we cre­at­ed flower pins using Petaloo flow­ers that were mist­ed with sev­er­al dif­fer­ent col­ors of Maya Mist. Then we accent­ed the cen­ter of the flower with one of the new Bin­go Mark­ers. It was a fun day and once again I had a blast meet­ing every­one that came by to say hi. Now how about a lit­tle Stu­dio 490. I LOVE all the new items Wendy Vec­chi is releas­ing. So I will just post all the eye can­dy and save all the WOW’s and OH MY GOODNESS, and I have to HAVE THIS for you… because hon­est­ly this is all I can think to say about her release. So enjoy. And if I don’t get this stamp set I think I might just die.…is this incred­i­ble or what? So there you have it… loads...

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...

Make Art…

Sep 2, 2009

So do you wish you could stamp like Wendy Vec­chi as much as I do? Well it just got a lot eas­i­er for me. I had a great mail day yes­ter­day because Wendy sent me a copy of her new book “Make Art, Stu­dio 490 Style”. Let me tell ya… this book will nev­er leave my work­sta­tion and I am not kid­ding! Behind this cov­er con­tains loads and loads of  incred­i­ble infor­ma­tion. Read­ing Wendy’s book is kin­da like being able to pick her brain. You know when you look at her incred­i­ble cre­ations and think to your­self… who’s prod­uct is this, how did she do that… what did she use here.… well it is all inside. Wendy lists her favorite sup­plies (the basics and the extras) tips, stamp stuff, basic info and has approx­i­mate­ly...

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...
