Blossoming Cards

Ok, so hopefully you can see a pattern - May is Blossom month :)  I have been having such a blast with this paper kit!  Here are a few cards I created for a office workshop for a customer.

These cards were created using the new Finding the Words stamp set, the Hostess Rewards Tagged with Love Stamp Set and  Coral Reef Sequins.  Hope you like!

Next Workshop: Crushin'

I am excited to announce my next workshop created with our new My Crush for Her album.  Instead of using this album in the typical fashion, we will literally be tearing it apart to create these two double-page layouts.

We will add some extra shimmer trim and embellishments and walk away with these 2 fun and beautiful layouts.  Sign up using the link to the right, by May 25th to reserve your spot.  I look forward to crushin' with you!  :)

Going smaller with Blossom

On the third day of our scrapbook retreat my scrapbook consultant taught to me.... ok, so I guess that isn't exactly how the song goes but hey - I'm running short on sleep so I get crazy. :)

The next workshop we completed was this cute little mini album using the Blossom papers and Compliments  and our new My Creations Mini Mix Album.  

I love this little album as it is the perfect size to put together a quick antd unique gift for any occasion.  I gave each attendee pieces to create either My Family or My Friends themed album.  When you first open the book, before we added our papers to it,  you see just how unique this mini-book is as it has craft and vellum pages along with your standard white daisy pages.    We had a lot of fun creating this fun book.  Hope you like it!

Blossom Joy

On the 2nd day of our retreat we created this cute layout using the new Blossom papers, Complements,  Coral Reef Sequins, Oceanside Sequins and Carnival Washi Tape.  All are brand new products in the Seasonal Expressions 2 book just released.

One technique we used was on the zip strip on the bottom of the left page. We cut it in half and put White Shimmer Trim below it.  This gives the layout a subtle shimmer that doesn't overwhelm the layout.

Check back soon to see what we created on day 3 of our retreat.  Here is a hint - it blossoms too! :)

She Art It!

In honor of my challenge for this weekend to use your scraps and old supplies, I wanted to show you what my retreat girls created.  This weekend we have packed up and are at the beautiful Grand Oak Retreat in Scottsboro AL to scrap the weekend away.  Each day I have a workshop for the girls to complete and our first night we made something called SHE ART.  We use 6x6 canvas from CTMH and all my old scraps and embellishments.  The object is to create a small layout that speaks about you (or if creating for a friend, would talk about them). Here is what we created:

 Aren't these fun!  The hardest part for some was drawing the person but I think they did great!  As Mother's Day approaches why don't you create one for your mom to tell her what you think about her! Don't forget to load it to my facebook page to show it off and be entered into the drawing that closes tomorrow night.
