Another 3 in1 challenge card

This one was kinda of put together with papers that I already had out- scraps- and whatever... but I really liked how it turned out! I used an old hostess set from SU! (measure of life- for sale for $10) with some retired papers. This one goes in for the Shiney challenge at Creative Card Crew ( the glitter on the wings, even thou it's hard to see in the picture) and the sketch was from MOJO Monday. The colors I choose were from(luckily the ones I had out) Stacey's Stamping page- The curtain call. I used the rock n roll technigue with certainly celery and cherry cobbler (stamp your whole stamp in the liter color then just kind of ink up the side of your stamp in a darker color by going around and around). Thanks for stopping by... and have a great day!

Thank you's for July

Here are my thank you cards that I will be sending out to everyone who placed an order in July. I do appreciate my customers (even though I am not the most on-top-of demonstrator) so I stole this little idea of thank you cards from Dawn Griffith (check out her blog- found on my side bar).

They are made with Fifth Avenue Floral.. A Gotta Have from SU! This is great for stamping and scrapbooking (check out my post from my last scrap class) I embossed the big flower and saying with whinter white embossing powder and cut it out. I am offering 20% off of this stamp set this month.... just let me know how many you want!

Happy Halloween Faux Button

I went to my friend Sharon's house to learn how to use MDS and we got to do a make in take Thank You So I thought today I would share with you what I learned last night....drum roll Please......

Drum Roll
FAUX BUTTONS! Ok so many of you probably already know how to made a fake button but I didn't and I just want to make a ton of these! SO.... you take two circle punches and punch two circles.. then take a smaller one and punch a smaller circle out of the middle (but to make it easier do the center- smaller circle first then punch the bigger one... so you have the paper to hold while punching. then layer them, and place on wax paper and cover with Crystal Effects #101055 $6.25- (you can order some from me!) Let dry and then decorate.

Scrap til you craMp! 8/6/10

These are the pages from my scrap class last night. I try to do a class every couple of months- sometimes that happens every month sometimes every few months. Anyways everyone really seemed to like the pages. I try to do the holidays that just passsed or the season. I charge $25 for the six pages, all the people need to bring is a paper trimmer, scissors, and adhesive- everything else is provided. Then they take the pages home and put in their own pictures and wha-laa! If they bring a friend, are in my downline, or placed an order of $25 or more, they can get $5 off a class for that month.
