I know, another picture of me, right? Well, I'm not that conceited. Beth asked the Design Team Members to each make a magnet board. We picked the paper, flower, ribbon and embellishments that showed our styles the best.
The beautiful flowers and bling are from Prima. The paper is from Pink Paisley and there is a spotted pink Bazzill cardstock. The initial "R" is a magnetic wooden letter.
This morning when I opened The Scrapbook Junkie I had 4 people signed up for my Cricut Expression class that I am teaching on Sunday afternoon from 4-6p.m. By the end of the day, I had 12 people signed up! Way to read the emails, people!! I am so excited!
Know what it's called when a group of Cricut owners get together with their machines? A "Swarm". I've taught these classes several times before and it is so fun when everyone is cutting from their Cricut at the same time.
This time I am going to remember to bring my camera and takes pictures of the class. If you are in the area and want to sign up... call the store: 281-316-2222.
Pink Paisley Papers, Making Memories metal embellishments. Pink Paisley Letters. This is a pic of Steve's paternal Grandmother. I've always loved this pic.
New Reminisce line coming out soon! It's really cute with a stripe paper with different animals, and a colorful stripe on the back of it. The photos are matted with pumpkin patterned paper and the background is a leaf patterned paper. You can find it at The Junkie soon. The "Pumpkin Picking" title is a new Jolee's embellishment.
What a fun time I had tonight teaching the Beginner Scrapbooking Class at The Scrapbook Junkie! We made 2, 1-page layouts catered to their specific photos, but using the same layout design each. The ladies did so well! Here are some pics of their finished pages and hard work.
Oh goody! Another chance to use these precious pictures of Mackenzie! This layout used KI Memories paper line. Plus, the new Heidi Swapp Invisibles (the polka dotted) paper. Glitter alpha stickers are also KI.
Come by The Scrapbook Junkie to see it in person and get some of the products!!
I made these paper wallets (50 of them!) for a company to give to its employees who are fathers. It was sort of a ""card" to include the message that they received a 1/2 day vacation for all that they do as fathers.
I got the idea from Nicole Heady's blog. I added my own twists like the texture and the closure.
The wallet was pretty plain without any texture on the outside, so I created each side separately and ran each end through my Cuttlebug using the leather texture embossing folder.
Then I put the two sides together using red line tape. The closure is a velcro coin with a metal brad on the outside.
Prima has a cool new canvas album. Each of the DT members got a page to embellish... the final book will be on display at The Scrapbook Junkie. Here is my page, front and back. The embellishments and paper are from Creative Imaginations.
On the back of the canvas page I embroidered some swirly designs and added paper flowers from the CI travel line.
I stamped the circles with my glue pad and added brown flocking.
Using a portion of the acetate overlay, I made a pocket and made tags to go inside.
Well, it's my favorite color. And it's also the favorite color of the young lady who will be receiving this tin. It is a commission for her graduation and each member of her family is going to put a little something inside.
I used the Wisteria line from Basic Grey. LOVE this line of paper!
It's wedding season again! And here's another project for my sis. I love making these altered tins! This paper is from Creative Imaginations and I love the little birds on it. The bird on the front is an embellishment from Heidi Swapp -- it's a mirror! How cool is that? I mounted it on an acrylic circle and layered pearl flowers around it. Every edge has a detail.
I repeated the bird theme on the inside lid, with a smaller mirror bird and more pearl flowers.
My sister hired me to make 25 of these boxes for her employees who are Moms. I made 5 of each patterned paper design. They are 4 1/4" square. The box itself is cut from an Accu-Cut die using Kraft Bazzill paper. It's a neutral color so any of the patterened paper goes with it. The matching ribbon on the edge of the lid helps to keep the lid together, as well as tie in the top and the bottom. The flowers on top were also cut using an Accu-Cut die. I cut two of each size flower and folded the petals in half to add a little dimension. I then used pop dots to raise each layer up above the other.
I'm happy to report that I am ready to begin teaching classes at The Scrapbook Junkie! My first class will be a Cricut Hands-On class. This will be Tuesday, May 5th from 6:30-8:30.
