MyCreations Recipe Box Workshop

Yesterday was such a fun afternoon! A group of my loyal customers gathered together for a Recipe Box Workshop. Using the new Cherry-O papers and lots of Close To My Heart's fun buttons and waxy flax, they each completed a box of their own. Does this sound like a good time to you? The class is just $15 per person, ALL materials included. And the fee is reduced to only $10, if you order $30 in product the day of the class. Email me to schedule a crafty time with your own group of friends!

Miracle Kit - Not Just for Scrapbooking!

I finally had a chance to play around with this month's special, "Miracle" . . . you can either make layouts with these products (full directions are included in kit) - OR you can branch out and make other great stuff! Here are just a few cards that I put together, using a sampling of the fun things included in the kit. See April 15 posting for details on the Miracle special.

New Product Artwork - 3

These are our new Clear Cards. So much fun to work with . . . it's a whole new world! You can think outside the box in designing with these cards; what do you want to see on the front? What do you want to see on the inside but THROUGH the front? What do you want showing through the back? So many different perspecitves!

New Product Artwork - 2

This card features the new stamp set, "Beary Busy" and new papers, "Passages." This set features four different bear characters, four sentiments and four foliage additions. When I first saw it, I thought, "Cute . . . but so NOT me." Then, I just kept coming back to it and looking at it again until I decided I HAD to have it. :-) And I loved working with it! Our Waterbrush is a fantastic tool for coloring outline images like these. This card includes Twill Ribbon and Antique Copper Brads as embellishments. It's adorable in this 3x5 size.
