Girly fun for March

Here's a little peek at what I am working on for my March Bookin' It class (March 7, 10:30-2:30pm). As you can see I was very much in a girly mood. I just couldn't resist the K&co Urban Rhapsody line (the jumbo fabric square brads were calling my name) and it goes great with My minds eye Kaleidoscope confetti line. It's going to be a very product load project, tulle, felts, ribbons, chipboard embellishments, buttons, brads, rhinestones etc.. The letters I am using for my A 2 Z classes came in a box, so
to me that means free product for another project, yeah! We will be decorating the box
and making a scalloped book that fits perfectly inside. i'll be teaching how to use UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel), which if you haven't used it before you are missing out, it Rocks! Once I get some new cute pics of my girls done the book will get finished in no time. I have my Valentine Bookin' It class tomorrow. It will be a busy class, but then again it wouldn't be one of my classes if it wasn't a little crazy right. I really should sleep now so I will be alive in the morning (oh, how I wish I was a morning person). Have a super Duper day everyone!

Monday Holiday!

Don't you just love a Monday holiday! A long weekend, No school, no work, just family time. We started the day off going out for bunch, then bummed around the mall for awhile and of course squeezed in a quick trip to Scrapbooks Etc. for a few last pieces for my Feb. Bookin' It class (Feb. 1 -10:30am-2:30pm) John and the kids played outside until dinner which gave me time to finish my class project. So now I get to finally show it to all of you. Are you in the mood for love? It's time to get romantic.
This book is big! I used the Bazzill scalloped heart for the covers,which is close to 12 x 12. You can fit a good amount of pictures in it. I of course don't have a lot in it because I realized as I was making it John and I never take our picture together, so sad. I will probably take it down to the store tomorrow or I might wait until Wed. night when I work.

I won't be doing to much driving until my new drivers license comes. That's right I need a new license, why you might ask? Because some crummy person stole my wallet out of my purse which was in the office while I was teaching at the scrappin' sampler. So whoever you are you stink! The creepy part to me is this person probably knows who I am or at least has seen me teaching and working there. I just soooooo do not understand how someone can just take something that isn't theirs with no regard for how it will effect others. Anyway, that's my soap box for the
night. I don't want to dwell on the negative stuff, which is so hard to do, which is why it's one of my new goals..... to be more POSITIVE. Well, here's to a positive night ya'all.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed, kinda like your drowning in your responsibilities? Well, that has been me for the last two- three months. If only I could buy me some time, I would definitely pay top dollar for some extra time (for myself). And that is why it has taken me so long to post these pics for you ladies out there who requested them. I'm so sorry it took so long. And for those who don't know what these pics are, they are from my Dec. class. It was definitely one of those classes where I really put the ladies to work. We painted, we stamped, we inked, we got messy, but all in all it was worth it right gals. My book still doesn't have pics in it because I think I am going to give it to my cousin for a wedding gift. His fiancee was at the store and really loved all these papers. They are a super cute & sweet couple so they will look so pretty in it. Hope everyone has a super day!

A 2 Z class

Well, I hope everyone has recovered from the holidays. I must say this year the holidays kicked my but!!!!! I've been super busy trying to get ready for Jan and feb classes. I had my Bookin' It Class Jan. 2 which was a bit stressful to get ready for. Luckily I have Tammy kit for me or I would have lost my mind. Speaking of classes I thought I'd post some pics of my upcoming classes or at least sneak peeks.
My next class is A 2 Z Techniques Jan. 18 2-4:30pm. Some people have been confused about these classes, so I'm hoping I can explain better. There are four classes each $35 (Jan. 18, Feb.15, Mar. 28, Apr. 18 all @2-4:30pm). Theses classes are all about techniques! Each class you will learn 6-7 techniques that we will do on chipboard letters. Then we will use the letters on
8 1/2 x 11" layouts. So if you take all four classes you end up with 26 -8 1/2" x 11" layouts and as a little bonus if you take all four classes you get an album and products to decorate the cover FREE!!

Here is a little sampling from the class layouts. We will be playing with everything from, paper, ribbon, inks, 3 different crackle products, paints, textures and more. There are even a few techniques I used to do when I faux finished. It's going to be a lot of fun.

And here are the teasers I made for a class or shall I say event I am totally excited about. Feb. 23 @ 9am-6pm is our Le Jour D' Artiste day of creating. Carol Wingert, Tena Sprenger, Jenny Packard and I are all teaching together. We are each teaching a project, I am doing a home decor project that I am super excited to teach. We will be having lunch catered and goodies and prizes. It's going to be a blast so sign up quick.

Also this month I'll be teaching at one of the scrappin' sampler classes on Jan. 19th. I highly recommend signing up and fast. There are three sessions and each session has 3 different teachers teaching fun make -n-takes, you make something with each teacher. It's only $2.50 and you get a $2.50 store coupon. I taught one last quarter and it was so fun and fast. Well, it's Sunday and I need to be with my gang so have a super day!
