Since I do not post on the weekends I'm going to wish you all a Hyper and Fun filled Halloween!
Be Safe.

Here's another sneak peek of a class I'm having with a friend and fellow Demo Lorrie Reed in mid Nov.
I made this one as a sample to show.
We are still working out the detail. But I promise it to impress.
All Demos and Stampers alike are welcome..come with your demo or have your demo come so she can give the class to you.
So if you live in the Hampton Roads area.
Subscribe, so you can find out all the details (to come this week).
It's not to be missed!

Happy Belated!

Real quick I gave this to Lisa last Wed for her Birthday....the box filled with her favorite chocolates, is a template you can find on the SU site.
You have to be a demo, so here's my spiel JOIN ME!

Hoping to show all gifts this week, unfortunately or not I got lazy.
Or more like working on my class and Lilli's Halloween craft for her class.
I'm waiting to get Hubby to film my Holiday and Winter frame video, I'll grab him by the ear this weekend. Want no oopses this time. (falling camera:)
Happy Hump Day!

Oops No Frames today...

Just a quick card...
I know I'm getting away from the frames and I do have more to show and something real exciting on Mon, just have no pics YET!
I found this card here, Mickeys card is so much better but I didn't have this set....Yet!
I also used hairspray instead of adhesive spray, I made several this was the first and I went a little overboard with the hairspray a quick spray will keep that sneaky glitter in it's place!!

Have a Good Weekend!

Frames Frames Frames Everywhere!

Does this look like you, pick up a frame here, find a great deal there?
Well I really have more than is shown, these were the ones I pulled out. All were under 3$.
Our weather this weekend was perfect for stamping , soups and a think I was that lucky, No!
Except for the stamping...Mountains and Mountains of laundry were barking at me, clean me clean me, no nap. But, I did fix a meat filled chili on Sunday so Yummy.
So Wed I will have a video showing how to change your frames out for the seasons the first will be on fall and winter with some holidays thrown in.
Quick and easy wall art for your home or as a gift.
Here's what I did this weekend with some of those frames.
Some Non SU stamps used.
I used a technique I learned from Faith Clark, if you are a Demo who has access to the workshop wows from convention she is a presenter and shows this technique.
Very Easy with a WOW!
Happy Monday!

No smudges please!

This was my second take on doing this card. After cutting the mask for the first I discover my mask was to thin and the ink bled through. So going through and cutting another thicker mask and redoing the card. Finished, I go to glue and apply to it's base and
Had ink on my fingers.
Thankfully I hid it with my trusty Watermark, yep it's under there.
So if you need one of those Michelle at Laycock will do just that if that's all you need.

Tips of the day...make sure your mask is thick enough not to bleed and your hands stay clean.
Happy Wednesday!

Hollly Jolly

Notice the Shimmer all over the card!!!
Well I go to a Shoe Box Swap every other Wed with some other Demos and this past week I made this simple and easy card using the grid technique.
Well Lisa Freeman that's whose house we all go to
had 2 of the shimmer paints in bottles of alcohol to spritz her card....these ladies are a hoot, we all started to spritz all our cards to check out the effects. I have to tell you they all just turned out adorable.
We used the Champagne and the Frost White shimmers.
So for and impact to your Holiday or an Elegance to any card add some shimmers.
I think it just few oz. of alcohol with a few drops of the shimmers paint in a spray bottle.
Spray your whole card...dries quickly.
Happy Monday

Can a Dradle have Merry on it? & Sam's stupid ways!

Do you know the answer to that question?
I came across this quite by accident by running a punched ornament through my Merry Emboss lit. I actually had other plans for this card but thought the dradle was to too cool.
Then colored a white 5/16 brad with a dark blue sharpie

I read a good blog business article the other day and because I want a good Business blog I am opening my comments back up. My thinking was to lighten my load and make things a little easier, by not running to my computer everyday to see if any have commented, cause who doesn't like comments and want their heads a little expanded.
I've been doing my blogging on Sundays nights these past weeks, set my posts up, answer e-mails, respond to comments. That way I am not tied to the computer all week. So on that note I will keep things the way they have been these past weeks, but with my comments open and will get back to you after the beep...which will be this Sunday.
Don't forget to ask for my free class in the for sale & class section.
Have a Good weekend.

The best swap of them all!

This smells divine!
Done by Patty Shipley I hope I have this right cause Lilli took it (I have a feeling its in one of her many hand bags) and now I cant find it...
Loved this the most.
A little satchel sewn with some lavender inside and using Herb Expressions p 55.
Made my suit case smell so good I'm surprised airport security weren't suspicious that I was trying to hide something.
Very beautiful, so on that note...
Have a nice Weekend!
