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!

Time flies......

.....when you are having fun!! has been a whirlwind the last few weeks! As many of you know I work at a scrapbook store and I am also teaching classes. Well along with going out of town and trying to create projects for 2 classes this is finished. LOL Well I wanted to share what I did for my class was a Tim Holtz workshop. The class was awesome....I loved meeting new people and being able to help them make art. I designed a layout, card, and a tag.....all using some of the new Tim Holtz sizzix dies and some of his techniques. I do believe the ladies all had a wonderful time and went away happy with there projects. The first up is the layout.....the techniques were distress inking, alcohol inking, and a fabulous dabber resist {right out of Tims new book "A Compendium of Curiosities"}. I hope you can see the resist on the outer edge.

Next is the card where we did some dry embossing with one of Tim's new Texture fades. If you don't own any you should.....they are awesome! The impression is so deep....beautiful! Then we used some distress crackle paint and some distress stickles for some gorgeous die cuts from more of Tim's new sizzix dies. Check it out!

Last up is the acrylic tag. We used an acrylic tag cut out on the big die cut machine at the store.....can't think of the brain is going at warp speed! Any way we dry embossed it with one of the texture cool....then did some alcohol inking with gold mixative and snow cap dabber paint for a simply beautiful effect. Then more distress stickles to finish the key hole.

Oh....remember you can click on the photo to make it larger to see the details.
Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow afternoon I will post the photos of my card class....another winner! Lots of fun! Have a great night!
