Summer Mini - Sneak Peek!



Yesterday I was a lucky winner of this Fabulous Florets stamp set from the upcoming Summer Mini-Catalog. I had to make at least one card to share, but have to pack the stamps away for a couple of weeks while I wrap up a couple of work-related projects I have been involved in.f you follow my blog I will be taking a couple of weeks off. I have some projects to finish up - and if I don't pack away the temptation they will never get done!

Here are my scheduled classes for the next month:

April 3rd - Easter Printers Tray Encore Class
April 11th - Monday Madness - Summer Product Preview
April 21st - Christmas Card Club

Call me for more information on any of these. Have a great week!

Banner Recreated




The banner project at the Regional yesterday was so over the top, I had to come home and make one for a friend!

Hartford Regionals





Many members of our Love At First Stamp group met up at the Regional and spent the day stamping together. I came back with lots of new ideas and techniques I can't wait to work into my classes!

Smooch Spritz Gets Reinked




I love having Mondays off! Today I got together with some friends and scrapped and stamped. My good friend Kimmie K. - a past demonstrator (I am on a mission to get her back! teehee) helped me to distress the backgrounds for some of these cards, but I wanted at least one to show off the Re-inked Smooch Spritz I made using my reinkers and a bottle of Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

I am also in love with the Cupcake Punch and coordinating Create a Cupcake stamp set. They are so darn cute! I have seen some wonderful cards created with this set, but for some reason whenever I make a cupcake card they always have to be in my favorite color combination of Pretty In Pink, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso. I can't share how thrilled I was when Stampin' Up! brought my Pink Pirouette back out of retirement!!

Well I am off to finish my group swaps for the Stampin' Up! Regional in Hartford next weekend!

If you aren't too busy this week, please join me for my Holiday Card Club being held this coming Thursday at 6:30! I'll post pictures later this week!

Desk Top Box Set






How cute is this box? This set can be viewed in person at Life's Memories and More, where I will be holding the class in May. The class will consist of the Desk Top Box, complete with 6 cards inside, and a note pad (not shown). We will be using some distressing techniques and Smooch Sprays to give your project a Vintage appearance, but if Vintage is not your style it is easily adaptable. Attendees will also get to take home a Tutorial written by me with Colored Pictures illustrating how to recreate this baby again on your own. Don't you just love the crinkly seam binding ribbons? I know I absolutely love this stuff!!
