My camera is misbehaving. I will try to use my scanner to scan my current artwork. Thanks for looking!


Medallion Cards

These medallions are from a retired set but you could use the current ones in our catalog - The Mini Medallions or the Grand Medallions to make these cards. Used Landscape Green Palette inkpad. Leave a comment if you have any questions on these.

"The Good Life" Samples

How do you like my new TV showcasing samples of how you can use February's rubber stamp Incentive Set - "The Good Life"? It's a fun thing. Just click on the TV screen to see a close up of a card image. I used Kaleidoscope Girlz, Catelynne and Sands of Time patterned papers. These papers ARE examples of "Paper Blessings!"

The Incentive Set is shown on top of the TV set. How did it get up there?


February Stamp & Scrap Class

Interested in learning how to make this mini tag book? We'll be making this in our February class along with a Mother's Day scrapbook page and card. Class will be held in my studio on Saturday, February 10 from 1-3pm. Supply fee is $12. Classes begin on time. Also, mark your 2007 calendar with these future class dates:
March 10
April 14
May 12
June 9
I will be adding pictures of these later on.



Experimenting with the coasters I got from Jen B. They have a really neat surface to work on. The first one uses "Pretty Posies" r2027 set and was colored in with prismacolor pencils. Used direct-to-paper technique for the background. Added ribbon & buttons to embellish. The second one, "believe in yourself," uses "Enjoy Today" t2412 stamp set, used the giga d81 shipping tag punch and covered the background of the coaster with "Hip Hop" patterned paper. Added some ribbons & a "B" die cut to complete it.

Mini Scripture Tag Book

Some of you were asking how I made these. I used "tags - bread" die cuts & cut them out of black cardstock. I used scraps of "Genevieve" patterned paper for the background. Stamped "Scriptures" on white cardstock and inked the edges. Then layered onto patterned paper then onto black tag. Embellish as desired. Before tying ribbons, I attached a gold brad through all of them together at the top right side of tag . This will allow the tags to slide open as needed for reading purposes. These make great inspirational mini gifts.
