Hello, I am back!! So sorry I fell of the face of the Earth there for a bit, I can be clumsy that way sometimes. It has been SUPER busy here at my house, busy, busy, busy! It's all good though!
I have been preparing for several up coming classes at Scraps of Life, and also classes for a weekend retreat with Scrap Happy Retreats!
The pictures here are for my upcoming class at Scraps of Life on Sept. 13th. In the top photo are some samples from my "Scor-pal" class, in addition to these three projects we will be making 3 different styles of folded cards and 2 different styles of envelopes to match. It's a hands on class, to learn the basics (and more) of this most wonderful tool!
This next photo is of one of the cards we will be making in my "Christmas Card Club" . Every month from now thru Dec. I will be teaching 8 new and different cards each month all themed for Christmas. Then when the holidays arrive, your cards will be ready! This class will also be held on Sept. 13th.
There is limited room in each class, so please sign up early if you are interested in either of these classes!
I have lots more goodies to post in the days to come, again sorry for not updating sooner. I hope you all are having a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!!

It's been really busy around our house the last few weeks, holy cow! Today is the first day of school for my kiddos, and the first day of Kindergarten for my son!! It seems like only yesterday it was my daughters first day of Kindergarten, and now she is in the 4th grade!!
Anyway here is another card for the Christmas stack! Very quick and simple to make too!! I used a reverse masking technique, and sponged the ink into the circle. I stamped the ink off once to get the lighter snowflakes inside of the circle. Then I removed my masking and stamped the large snowflake, (with full strength ink) and sentiment. The snowflakes and the sentiment are both from The Angel Company, "Ornamental Snowflakes" and "Holiday Liners". I layered my card front on a scrap of bright blue Bazzil Bling card stock (wow try to say the 10 times fast!), added some silver cording and a little gem. I am really happy with how it turned out, hope you enjoy it to!

I know that I've said this before, but I love these Angels! I am one of those people who always have a million plans for the Holidays, but fail to start early enough. So this year I am getting a jump start on my holiday cards, so that I will actually send them in the mail to all the people that I love......I hope.
This card is made with the set "Just Dream" from the Angel Company, and colored with Copic markers. It's kind of difficult to read her sign, it says "Celebrate", I wanted Happy Holidays, or Merry Christmas, but didn't have the right size.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

I have been playing with some new stamp sets from The Angel Company, since the new catalog just came out there are a lot of new goodies ! This is a new set called "Just Dream", there are 4 different Angels in the set, but this is my favorite. Until the 15th of August there is a special Limited Edition of this set (a smaller version) called "Just Dreamy ", with a $30.00 purchase, you can get Just Dreamy for only $7.95!! The paper is from the Miss Moxie collection, also from The Angel Company.
Thank you all for the nice birthday wishes, I had a most wonderful week and a great birthday! My Most Wonderful Hostess group met for a new catalog party, but it felt like a birthday party!
