Thank You, Teacher

Last week I had an opportunity to papercraft with a local Brownie Troop. One of the projects was this wrapped Hershey Bar--a little something for a special teacher. Between my Cricut machine and Stampin' Up! products, this was a cute and easy project for the children. The girls were pleased with their completed projects--and I had a delightful time.

Happy Memorial Day

No card today, but wanted to honor those who were or are part of our military. This is a pic of the flag that flies at the USS Arizona memorial in Hawaii. Thank you.

Cool & Refreshing

I was surfing the web and came across this card. It was on Vickie Maduzia's website. I made this card using a watercolor technique for the background. Needless to say, it will be one of the cards you will be making if you attend my Watercolor Technique class on May 26th. Hope to see you there. In the meantime, enjoy your day.

Hello Kitty Graduation Card

Our little granddaughter is graduating from preschool tomorrow. How cute is this card--and perfect for the occasion! I went back and forth on whether or not I should add the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge to my collection. Very glad I did purchase it. I have used the cartridge on numerous occasions. Not only does it have a number of Hello Kitty images, but also images of other things--strawberry, cherries, cupcake and so much more. When I purchased my first Cricut, I was buying cartridges like crazy. Since then, I only purchase those I am sure I will make use of.
If you own a Cricut or contemplate buying one, you are welcome to give me a call. I will be more than happy to share my thoughts about the machine or any of the cartridges in my collection.

Mother's Day Card

This is a card that I came across on SCS. I do not have the name of the original artist, but I want to thank her for the idea. Her card was absolutely beautiful. I used retired SU! paper and cardstock for this one.

My New Scrap Room

I wanted to share some photos of my new scrap room. It definitely is prettier in person, but you get an idea of your surroundings when you attend one of my classes or a scrap & stamp. My husband spent many hours putting this together for me and I am so thankful to him. The bar stools should be here by next week and then I will be set to go. In the meantime, I am working on my June calendar and will post upcoming classes.
