Happy Valentine's Day!

Friday 14 February 2014

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  My husband and I don't really go all out for Valentine's Day and this year is no exception - we're going out to dinner tonight at friends, but no plans for a romantic dinner for the two of us.  Have to work on that for next year :)

I did however buy him a little chocolate treat - I saw this as I came through Denver Airport on a recent trip and I know he loves chocolate.  The holder is made with the new Scalloped Top Punch from Stampin' Up!.  I love this punch.  I'll share a card I made using this punch to create the enclosure in my next post. Thanks to my friend Ginny Duncan who inspired this creation.

Here's the chocolate holder.  I'm also in love with the new washi tape in the Occasions Catalogue - Happy Watercolor! 

 I've shared the card I made on a previous blog, but here it is again.

I hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Mixed Media - I'm loving it!

Saturday 1 February 2014

I've just finished the sample for my upcoming Mixed Media Class on February 22nd.  I just love this technique.  I get to be "artistic" not just creative - well, I think I am being artistic.  It's so much fun to keep applying layers and see what it turns out like.  The secret is to not give up!  It never looks very good until you get all of the layers applied!

Are you interested in learning more?  I have one space left on Feb 22nd.  I am holding a second class on March 1st from 1-4pm.  You can email me to reserve for either of these dates.

Want to see what you'll be working on?  For this sample I used the Petite Petals Punch from the Occasions Catalogue and the Designer Series Paper called Sweet Sorbet - one of the free products you can choose if you purchase $60 from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue or the Annual Catalogue. 

Happy creating!
