Last week we had our first meeting of the Paper Anthology Greeting Girls. A monthly get together to create cards for Card Care Connection, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing sympathetic messages and motivational cards to those who face cancer. I thought I would share a few of the beautiful cards that were made. We’d love to have you join us! Our next meeting is October 14th, from 5 pm to 10 pm.
Well I had a very busy week in Orlando!
Tons of inspiration, lots of ideas for new classes and placed a ton of orders for new products!
This lovely shadow box book was a definite inspiration for a future class:
My Favorite Things had some beautiful cards – I just had to order all the stamps and dies! (they are due to arrive tomorrow!)
These will be an upcoming class in the November/December schedule – wait till you see how they turned out!
Ken Oliver had some new stamps , dies and ColorBurst colors!
The Collin’s fall Trade show is this week. I’ve just arrived and I have a few hours to unwind before the insanity begins! Here’s the view from my hotel room:

Here’s a new “Scrap Pack” page kit from Paper Anthology , using the Happy Glamper paper from PhotoPlay Paper:
Christmas card club is in full swing and this month is all about embossing!
And here’s this month’s Make & Take card – I am so addicted to these awesome frame stamps from Rubbernecker stamps!!!
Thought I’d share a few cards I’ve been working on this week. The first card is for the February meeting of the Christmas card club and features a beautiful stamp from Northwoods stamps and paper from Lawn Fawn. The image is colored with Peerless watercolors and the snowy frame was done with my favorite technique for dimensional snow – “Designer Dries White” adhesive from Art Glitter applied with a fineline applicator with clear glitter sprinkled over it while still wet.
The next card is for this coming Sunday’s Make and Take Sunday, featuring a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn as well as one of their lovely plaid papers! The “hand-drawn” border is actually an awesome stamp from Rubbernecker stamps.
Thanks for stopping by!
