Hello there! What a weekend! Now its the start of a brand new week. I wanted to share my tags I made for a Tim Holtz workshop I did last month. I tried to incorporate lots of technique and different mediums and materials. The first tag uses a letterpress technique for the background and of course I made the little charm house using one of Tim's techniques from I think it was last years tag.

The next tag uses a heat embossed then inked background. I used one of Tim's alterations dies, some primas, a ticket and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

The last one uses some paint on a stamp....then inked for a resist technique. Then a rolled flower embossed with UTEE.

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I came up with for my version of a Tim Holtz tags class. Still some things to share this week so I will be back. I am almost finished about you? Have a great day!

Oh Happy Day!!

Hello I did not forget my blog again. Its just my son is a wrestler and in the past 8 days he has had 5 matches. And if you know anything about wrestling its all about sitting and waiting....waiting....waiting oh ....until the next match. LOL But he has been doing awesome.....we are so proud of him. Any way....back to why you are visiting.....I do have something to share.....a Christmas mini book. The pages are made using 1 12x12 sheet of double sided patterened paper. Pretty cool! The poinsettia on the cover was cut with my cricut and embellished with rock candy distress stickles and kaiser pearls.

Oh....I had someone in one of my comments ask about the directions for one of my sorry....will be up in the next day or 2. Hey all have a great Sunday and stay warm!

Update!!!! Finally!

Hello there! So sorry this little blog of mine has been seriously neglected. Busy busy busy is all I can say! LOL But the wait is over! I have lots to share and will try to post all week. Projects coming today are my November- December Advanced card class that I do at my LSS. Later in the week I will show you the mini tag book I created, the version of a Tim Holtz class, and some projects I am working on currently which include a December Daily journal, Tim Holtz tags[my version of the ones he is creating currently....check his out if you aren't], and an art journal.....something I have been wanting to do for a long time! Thank you to all my faithful blogging friends for being patient with me. So hopefully I can inspire you with my little projects! Now enough talking....lets get to the cards!
Card #1 Of course I used a Just Rite Stamp, spellbinders die to create the card base, and some copics for coloring and flower soft for some added texture and glitz.

Card # 2 uses more Just Rite Stamps, jewels, a hand made flower{shown in class},and a spellbinders die
. It is a wonderful card to place a gift card inside!

Card #3 Last but certainly not least uses again a Just Rite Stamp for the focal image, Gorgeous ribbon, Martha Stewart corner/boarder punch, and a Spellbinders die. Its a folded card....pretty cool huh!

There they are! Please remember to click on any photo to reveal a lerger image. All patterened paper is from Graphic 45 Christmas collection. Hope you enjoyed today and I hope you are inspired to make some beautiful Christmas cards! I at least have 3 done! LOL Have a great Sunday! Bye for now!

Fall is here.....

Hello there! I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful fall weather we are having. At least in my area it has been just awesome! I love cool crisp mornings and bright cool sunny pleasant! I have one of the cards I designed for my October class to show you....the others will have to wait until tomorrow. I just happen to be blog hopping and hopped onto the Just Rite blog [which I love] and saw this weeks challenge was for a Fall color themed card. Well since I hadn't posted this yet I thought I would use it for this challenge. LOL So glad I waited! I used the pumpkins stamp from the Autumn Blessings Set. I tend to use alot of Just Rites in my classes......they are just perfect. I made a slider first time. I used just a bit of some Cosmo Cricket patterened paper from the Nutmeg collection. The rest is just cardstock. Well enough is my card. Let me know what you all think! I just love comments! Remember click on the photo to make it larger.

Now for the inside...

Have a great night!

Good Morning.....

Hello has been super busy. I have been getting ready for my card class which is tomorrow. I am thrilled to say it is full! And I have a waiting excited! I will show you those tomorrow but for today I realized I haven't showed you my layout that I designed for the September "Layout of the Month" club at my LSS. I actually got to do one. I was a little apprehensive because it is a challenge coming up with technique ideas but well I will get on with it and just show you what I did! The title is "Apple of my eye"......very fitting for September I think. We did lots of different techniques from inking to even crackle painting! Take a look and let me know what you think. Here are a few photos....

Now some closeup shots.....

Thank you so much for visiting today! Have a great weekend!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

Hello out there! Oh happy day to all you card makers! I will possibly have several posts today. One right now with a few cards I made a few weeks ago and later on to show you the cards for my new card class for October....yipee!! Only 4 spots left if you are in the area! Later on that one....back to now....I bought the I-Rock by Imaginese. Super cool toy! I love adding jewels to my cards....a pretty effect. Here are 2 that I played with the little gadget and used there template that comes with some jewels and some flowers! The first card I used a Unity Stamp Co. stamp. I think they have to be one of my favorite stamps!

The second card uses some rubons for the sentiment.

I found the I-Rock to be quite easy to use.....looking forward to using it more on future projects. Stay tuned for more cards today! Bye for now!

Where has August gone......

Hello friends, followers and family! August has just flown by! I have been very busy working at the store.....designing the Layout of the Month, my September cards class and trying to work on personal stuff. But I did not want this month to get away without showing you the cards for this month. We had so many ladies want to take the class we had to have 2.....and that one is fuller than the other one was! It will be this coming Sunday afternoon September 5th.
All cards were made using the Fancy Pants "Road Show" line. Enjoy!!

The first is a tent card.....made to fit in an A2 envelope....

The second....just a regular card.....with some heat embossing and inking.

And lastly my of those tri-fold cards.

Have a great day!! On to my next project!
