Successful Spring Garland Class

We had our Spring Garland Class this morning and it was a huge success!  We got some positive feedback from everyone.  We heard from several people that they did learn something new. We really got to show off some of the products that you can not find in this area.  We have to thank Maya Road for that!  We were amazed at some of the natural talent we had in class.  The first pic shows everyone working so hard on their projects.  No one got to finish the garland but everyone did get to the point that all they have to do it decorate it.  We had fun misting, playing with Stickles, and learning to make some new flowers.  Then it was onto Prissy's secret project.  Everybody really liked her project.  The second pic shows Wally applying her tulle around her frame and the last pic shows Jessica's finished project.  Everybody did a great job!!  Now onto planning the next class which we did show in class and we already had three people sign up.  This project will be featured within the next day or two so please sign up as soon as you can. This project will feature lots of new ideas and products.

Cute as a Cupcake card

This is a little project I made over the weekend.  I got this idea from a bib I saw while out shopping with Prissy and my sister Krissy.  I thought it would make a great card for a baby shower I was going to over the weekend.  I cut the cupcake from the Sweet Treats cartridge by Cricut, added German glass glitter to the cake portion to give it a frosting appearance also with some added bling.  I stamped the background with some of my favorite swirl stamps by Inkadinkado, and made the tag from some spare chipboard I had.  I distress all edges with Vintage Photo by Ranger.  Lastly, I took a baby washcloth and used it as my candle.  I used Stickles to add a little glimmer to the wick.  It's a simple and fun card to make.  The expectant mom really liked the card and she thought I was very inventive with the washcloth.

Copic Training

I wanted to show you the cards we made in our Copic class over the weekend at The Crafty Scrapper.  I think we were amazed at the endless possibilities of these markers.  Frank, our instructor, taught us a lot.  I have had a set of markers that Tammy gave me awhile back but didn't really know what I could do with them.  Prissy had her set of markers she has collected over the last couple of years.  In this class Frank taught of the basics of shading.  It was great to walk away with some samples to refer back too.  We can't wait to sit down with Tammy and show her what we learned.  Frank told us he offers two more classes which is something we may have to check into.  I wonder if anyone in our area would be interested in learning more about Copic makers?  Get's you thinking doesn't it?

Plum Wore Out!

Hello from Dallas!  Prissy & I survived our day at The Crafty Scrapper.  It was a long fun day.  We took two classes.  First was a Spring Bouquet Snowglobe, it was fun to make and the people in our class were great.  Second we took the basics of Copic markers.  We really had to pay attention in this class so not many laughs but we did learn alot.  We will post pics of all the projects we made.  We are excited to show them to you.  We waived several times to our friend Tammy who had her own adventure this weekend.  She went to NASCAR with her co-workers and from her postings and text messages sounds like she had a great time too.  So you can see from the title of this posting we have all been busy and are PLUM WORE OUT!  LOL!!
