Mayberry Workshop

I just received the new token alphabet stamp set today and couldn't wait to finish this layout. This is the Mayberry workshop on the go, which I adjusted a bit for my pictures. This workshop is scheduled for 6/11. This paper is so cute and I love the stamp set in the workshop kit, I just didn't use it much on my layout. I will post other pictures using it in the next few months.

Canvas Wall Hanging

I've had this picture of my cousin's daughter for almost 7 years now and never knew what to do with it since it was a strange size. She was a flower girl at our wedding and the photographers took several pictures of her because she was so adorable. I used a plain canvas, painted it with pearl paint mixed with a few colors, and the retired Emporium papers. I made the carnations from colonial white cardstock, the scalloped circle punch, and a spray pen. Aren't they awesome? They look so real - I learned about them from a fellow consultant. I also made the roses from the Emporium b&t paper. I added a few leaves that I free-handed, and some "twirlies" that I made from cardstock. The letters are the cool new irresistible letters in the Spring/Summer Idea Book. I'm so happy with the way it turned out and I hope you enjoy seeing it! Look for a class on flowers soon, so you can learn how to make these too!

Magnifique Boxed Cards Workshop, 5/7

I saw a tutorial to make this box designed by fellow CTMH consultant Vicki Wizniuck and I was inspired to make this set of Thank You notes to go with it. You will learn to make the box using the scor board, and make 8 cards (with envelopes) to go inside. This is a great little gift to learn how to make! Cost of the workshop is $10. Please RSVP by 5/6 so I have materials ready. Hope to see you there!

Easter Card Workshop 3/26!

I was so inspired by the new Easter products in the new Idea Book! The Sophia paper is so perfect for Spring and I absolutely love the new $7.95 stamp set, A Hop A1112, so I designed these three cards for the card workshop. You will learn how to use liquid applique and use a blender pen to color in stamped images. You can also change the stamps you use on the cards to make them all religious or all bunnies, if you choose to. Please RSVP by 3/25 so I have supplies ready. Cost is $5. Hope to see you there!
