Cute, fast and easy

No, I am not talking about I could not resist that one. Megan is giving it a thumbs down, but I am still leaving it.

ever need one of those fun cards in a hurry. Well, this set from Inkadinkadoo is an easy set to get a fast card from. And they are hilarious!!! The best part is you get a great quick card that everyone will rave about. I colored this in with my copic markers, because they have great colors and you don't see color lines. Then just mounted it on scrap paper and waaallaaa... a great, fun and cute card. If you have not tried the copics yet- you should!!! We are having another copic class on Tuesday June 30th. Otherwise stop in and try them out.

Ideas from Books

I had a class two weeks ago using an idea book and adding a twist. we did these two layouts in the class. We used the beautiful Mimosa collection from SEI. This is a fabulous collection- I love the colors. We switched the paper and made a couple of other small changes to the layouts in the book. The Me Book is the idea book that these came from. It is a great class to help you learn how to use idea books and magazines and give them your personality.

Beautiful Butterfly

We had a fabulous time at the Sayner Show last weekend- hope all of you that were able to go had as much fun as we did! I was doing a card with embossing powder and bleach.
Here is a variation on different paper. I just love this look. I first embossed the butterfly with a gold sparkle embossing powder. If you do not have gold sparkle- you can make your own. You just mix gold embossing powder with gold glitter (make sure it is over 50% embossing powder or it does not stick right!) then I painted bleach in the butterfly wings. This is what it looked like when it was dry. Papers are all different so try it on a small scrap first.
I know that many of you purchased this great set from Inkadinkadoo. If you missed out, we will have this back in stock soon!
