Want to share with you my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. This card is a Judy Kennedy design but my take on it. We did this card yesterday with a group of ladies in Chatham. It was a great day. I had lots of kits left over so I thought this would make a great Wonderful Wednesday Card. There are some steps and some painting but you will learn lots from making this card. I used the new Prima acrylic paint to paint the flowers and leaves. The dies are from Frantic Stampers, Happy Anniversary and With This Kiss Couple. The flowers and leaves are from Creative Expressions, Petite Peony Cluster. To make the circle in the middle I used the MFT circles die and the memory box scallop edge circle die,

Today, I am sharing with you a kit that I made for the store, using the Carta Bella line "Old World Travel". Of course, as soon as I saw the lovely vintage-style papers in this line, I had to have them. I used some of the Prima Metal Stars, some twine, some cork cameras and some gems to complete the project. I also created the title using the Adventure series of Tim Holtz dies.
What I love about this collection, is that I have lots more paper styles to make a second kit so watch for it next week.

This up coming Friday is our Art Journal Night. We will be decorating the fronts of our Art Journals. All you will need to bring is your Art Journal, and trinkets that you would like to have on the front of your cover, we will supply the rest. I used plastic, wood and metal pieces for my cover. Prima and Tim Holtz have some neat pieces that you can use. We will show you how to use different products to get the look you want for your cover.

Hope to see you there!

The first class we will do our first page with distress inks from Ranger. Also I will be showing how to use stencils on your page.

I stamped the birds from the Bo Bunny "Birds of Feather" stamp in among the flowers on the background papers so they are hard to see in the photo. I also included some of the dies shown here and embellished those flowers with Liquid Pearls or with the Baby Pink Flower Soft.
The layout is difficult to see but I hope you can come in to the store to see it. The class is scheduled for Sunday, May 15 from 1:30 to 3:30. Kits are also available.
Don't forget to checkout the store or online to see all of the new paper collections we have. They are a scrapbooker's dream!!!

Good Morning Everyone,
Want to share with you my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I used the stamp set Sketched Blooms from MFT. This is another 2 step stamp set. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz "Crazy Talk". To get the sentiment on the page straight I used my Misti. I love how this tool works. I wished I had it when I first started stamping. The background paper is from Crate Paper called Maggie Holmes Bloom.
