March Fleur de Lisa Class

The flower this month the the Delphinium...which looks a lot like a Texas Bluebonnet. We will be using some stamps and punches to create this springtime card. This class will be offered twice at Stamp Antonio, first on Thursday evening March 10th, then again in the afternoon on Tuesday March 15th.
March is going to be Super Busy month for me! I will going to Warrenton & Round Top Texas later in the month and I'm still looking for anyone who wants to go with me...just let me know...the more the merrier!
Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments!

C is for Collector

I so relate to this....I am a collector!!
So here is yet another mini book I recently made. I Love the sticker sheet {see it here} and papers by 7 Gypsies. I used sheets of cardboard that I get from our office (that would have been thrown away) to make this book-YEP recylcled cardboard! For 2 of the pages I used Tim Holtz on the edge dies for the decorative edges of the cardboard...the rest I just hand cut with an exact-o knife. I haven't decided if I will add a little more to the pages...or leave them like they are until I'm ready to add pictures. But I really like the look of it so far! I bought 2 sticker I plan to make another one to sell....but this one I am gonna keep!

You can see that I used all the stickers sporadically throughout the pages I hope you like it! I would love to hear what you think of it!

Mini Books

I have so many projects going all at the same it's feels great when I have a few that are finished! I have been making mini albums or books. My goal is to have enough things to fill up a booth at a craft show by I started in January. It is sort of my New Years Resolution to "use" some of the "stuff" that I have bought and seems to be crowding up my space!

These 2 books were fun to make...and I really like how they turned out. The Designer paper "Life Stories" by My Minds Eye was my inspiration...but I also used papers by K&Co and others... some of my rubber stamps...and vintage lace..and charms....and etc.
Now I am working on class kits for March....I will be teaching a class for the San Antonio Calligraphy Guild on making paper flowers ....that's in addition to my regular classes at Stamp I gotta go and get busy!

Small Altered Journal

I buy things on impulse with the intention of altering them...or making something with them...I get all these ideas....but most of the time, these items I buy just sit in a box or a bin...and sadly...they never get made! Well ....Ta-Da! One of my impulse buys actually got made!
This is a small journal book that I purchased for $1.00 and simply covered and decorated the cover. What a nice gift this will make! So, 1 down....about 50 other impulse buys to go! I am trying to not buy anything else till I get these things I already have finished.....hmm how long do ya think that will last???
So many new things being released at CHA.... I saw this video on "Smash Journals" click HERE to see...very cool!
Thanks So much for stopping by.....I love hearing from Ya!
