Dear Friends,
 It has taken me a while to come to a difficult decision, but one that I had to make. I will no longer be designing for Scrapbook101. I wish Jeanie and her store the best of luck. As they say though, when one door closes another one opens, and I am happy to say that I am the primary card designer for our local JoAnn's. I will be having an open house in October to showcase the holiday cards that we will be doing in the card social during the month of November. Please stay tuned for more details, as we are still working them out. I will also be posting updates on my facebook page as well as my blog.
Happy Crafting

Iris Folding Dress

I have a friend that creates the most beautiful iris folded creations.  She encouraged me to give it a shot, after much research this is what I came up with. 
There are a few spots that I'm not that impressed with (some of my glue seeped through) but that can be expected with your first try.  I have to say I'm hooked and will be making more of these in the near future!

Make n Take

Thank you to all who came to my Make n Take yesterday afternoon.  It was great to have the tables filled from open to close.  I truly enjoy spending time with you girls.  We were close to the 50 card mark at the end of the day, so please if you were not able to make it, the cards are awaiting you at Scrapbook101.  They will be up all week.  Don't forget for each card you make, you get to put your name in the drawing for the gift card (if we get to 50 cards).  Thanks again for all your support!

Vintage Bella Rose

Here is another card that I will have at the Make n Take on Saturday, July 21st at Scrapbook101.
This card was made using one stamp, that I just stampedover and over to get the dimension in the flowers and leaves and a bit of pearls.  I love the vintage feel that this has.
Hope to see you Saturday, remember if we reach 50 cards there will be a drawing for a gift card.

Butterfly at rest

Here is another card that will be at my Make n Take on Saturday, July 21st!  The flowers and butterfly have lots of dimension and of course my homemade flower fluff.  A bright colorful ribbon finishes this off.  Remember if I reach 50 cards, I will have a drawing for a giftcard at scrapbook101.

Have you missed me?

Yes I've been away for awhile, but I'm back and with me I've brought a card that you will be able to create on Saturday, July 21st at Scrapbook101!  This one is called Woodland Side Step!

This is super easy to make, one cut and the rest is just scoring and folding!  The butterflies are from Cherry Lynn Designs, The label is #10 from Spellbinders, and the embossing folders that were used were forest branches and daisy and swirls.  The stamp is a heartfelt scenery builder one and the inks were peeled paint distress ink and purple twilight ink from adirondack.  The saying I can't remember the maker of that but it is stamped in black archival ink.  I used a bit of shimmer spray to add just a bit of sparkle for a finishing touch.
This card is being entered in the contest for fancy folds at fussy and fancy challenge
