New Cards

I have been so busy getting ready for the next round of classes that the cards are slower in coming right now. This is a fun, bright birthday card with a great sentiment! Cupcakes are such the rage right now which makes it fun to incorporate them into a card, and who doesn't need birthday cards around!
This other card is also focused on food - ice cream! I just realized I made two food cards - I wonder if I did it subconsciously because I am on a diet right now!! So funny! Oh well, I guess it is better to look at sweets than to eat them! (I am really missing my chocolate!)
My friend Pat and I have also been working on a Christmas Craft Workshop patterned after our Scrapbook Retreats. We are so excited about it and are very busy planning and designing Christmas Crafts for the ladies to do over a 3 day period. It is being held the very end of September (plenty early so if you take home kits you will have time to complete them) and and will be 3 1/2 full days of crafting. I can hardly wait!!!! If you are interested, please visit our blog at We have about 5 spots left!!

New Cards - Finally!!

It has been longer than I like between postings, but this last week has been crazy with catch up! Our 2nd scrapbook retreat was last weekend and was a huge success!!! It was so much fun! The food was great (thanks to our trusty chef, Lynn) and the company was incredible. We had great fun at our New Moon night and each had pictures taken with Jacob! We taught many classes and some new techniques. It was a wild and crazy three days that culminated in our first ever auction played with Pat and Teresa money. Fun, fun, fun! We posted our next retreat and within 24 hours we have almost filled up. If you are interested, please go to and sign up. Any questions? Email me and I can give you the low down.

On Friday, we are going to introduce our Christmas Craft retreat. 3 full days and nights filled with Christmas crafts - either from kits provided by us or your own. We will have a guy cutting wood at the retreat full time for anyone who would like him to cut their own ideas. It should be a fun filled preparation time. Go to on Friday to sign up!

Back to the cards. The pictures aren't the best - sorry. I'm suppose to be working on class ideas for the next quarter (July, Aug. Sept.) so I had to get these up fast. The flower pot card was cut from a Silhouette design and turned out really cute for those card people who like to have a "different" shaped card. The flowers pull out of the pot giving you room to write. Fun. I love how the bicycle card turned out. What fun colors I used - they are different for me but I really liked how it turned out. The baby card used some older Martha Stewart felt cut outs I had and then along the bottom I took a piece of Scor Tape and gathered the wide ribbon right onto it. I love Scor Tape!

Hopefully next week I will get up another giveaway - it makes me happy when I can help others! Have a great few days.
