Jeepers Creepers Workshop (October)

Hi Hi!!

First of thanks to my guests for being flexible and coming on the 18th due to me being sick. I am feeling much better now!!

Oh my goodness... this kit was so much fun!!

This first layout was our Hostess Club Layout!  It was inspired by Tina Lovell's (Hooligan's) layout.  I particularly liked the angled cut and over course the monsters are super cute ... and they are thin cuts!!  What fun!  Also, this kit could very easily be adapted to a birthday theme!!

This tangerine layout (tangerine is the new orange) layout was so much fun to do!!  Thanks to Lynn Como for her brilliant take on this halloween kit!  The edges of most everything are sponged with whisper and it's very subtle, but quite lovely.  

This next layout was also inspired by Lynn Como... It was fun to add the little touches.. the spider web, the spider, and the various stickers as well.  You might notice that in the middle is one of our new page protectors.. this one has four 3x4 horizontal slots.  perfect for photos and Picture My Life cards!  It's a great way to add more to your layout!

I was so impressed with this next layout, that I had to make it!  The lighting in this photo isn't the best, because the bows and the middle are supposed to be gray...  and you could use almost any color on this layout, as an accent color.  I chose pomegranate.  Incredible layout... inspired by Dana Kessler.  I love this black and white striped washi tape!!

And this one was just plain fun!!  I loved that it used many of the stickers and PML cards! This layout was inspired by Chris Robertson!!

Well, that's all I have so far for this kit... and it was super fun to work on these layouts... the stickers and diecuts were amazing!!  I loved all of the papers... well most of them...  and really enjoyed this paper kit.  

The next class will be Tuesday November 15th... and we will be working on Swan Lake.  Hope you all can make it!!

Magical Workshop (September)

Hi Everyone!!

Here's our take on Magical... this was a fun kit... and while Disney is very popular, it's also easy to try other things with this kit.

Here's the Hostess Club layout!  It's one we did at a corporate event and me being the rebel I can be, flipped the paper over... I liked the dots better than the stripes.

This fabulous layout was inspired by Dana Kessler (her layout was pink and hearts) but my guests went crazy for this layout!  It's just plan fun!!  and now that I look at it... I think that the pages are flip flopped... it should go the other way... but coolio... it looks good both ways!!

This layout was so much fun!!  Super cute and easy but it's the camera stamps that make this just plain fun!!

And the final layout... looks completely different than anything else and I love doing a surprise page... one that you say ... really this paper is part of the magical kit... LOL.  This delightful layout was inspired by Michelle Snyder's (calypso) layout.

I am so grateful for the creativity of my consultant friends!  and I love creating these fabulous layouts for my good friends.  I so enjoy spending time creating with them!

October Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone!! 

Finally have photos to upload... new to me computer system installed, but no slot for my memory card... technology... so I found a cord for my camera but still couldn't figure out how make it work... finally Scott came down to help... and really.. I just needed to turn my camera on... sigh... 

Anyway... here's the cards we created!!

This is my card and it was inspired by Liz Mullins Johnson.  It is a lovely card and fun too!  We stamped each color with a different stamp.  I had cut out the leaf shapes ahead of time and embossed them with gold embossing powder and then we sponged the colors on the leaf... starting with with the yellow, then red and finally green... using sponge daubers.

Julie's amazing card is next...

I must not have put on the stamped cover she gave us, but trust me... it's amazing.  When you open it up it looks like this!!  It pops out!!

We took an 8.5x11 cardstock and cut it and scored and added some decorations!  I love the square pumpkin faces as well as the Frank image!!...  What a great surprise!!

Lori's card is next!!  Fun paper and great Stamps make this card sweet and simple, but super fun and we couldn't help but giggle as we made this cute card.  (my favorite is the Frankie!!) This image is a little blurry and I will take a better photo and post it later.

Roxxy's card was this spooktacular scenery shot cut out and we stamped the images.  Love the purple background.  It was fun assembling this darling card!!  All of the images were precut for us!

Shannon's darling card was a candy corn mummy... we tore off pieces of 1 black,2 white, 2 yellow and 2 orange and inked them with black... Staring at the top, we assembled them down, putting the black in the middle of the yellow and added googly eyes.  Super cute!!

And Shannon provided us with another selection of papers to make a second similar card!  this one was fun as well!  Double the fun!!

It was a smaller crowd this month, and we missed Kathy, Anita and Melani and hope that you can make it next month.  We will be meeting on Tuesday November 8th (please note date change) instead of Tuesday November 1st.
