Hello Sunshine!

If you remember, a few weeks back I held a Girl's Night Out Workshop where the focus was on our new watercolors.  If you haven't had a chance to play with them yet - you need to!  They can add so much color to dark papers and a soft touch of color light paper with a little extra water.

Here are some of the cards I made previous to class to show some VERY simple techniques.



 Hello cut the Artistry Cricut Cartridge. The same cut used for the Zoe Workshop, just enlarged. I did the cards (above and below) with only two colors on both cards but image what they would look like  with the Ombre' technique.




My favorite card out of the three.  A simple card cut using the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  It looks so bright and cheerful and will definitely lift anyone's mood.

I love this layout Close to My Heart recently showed on their blog:
Though we only made cards, this beautiful layout shows that watercolor paints can be used for all sorts of craft projects.  LOVE THAT!

Overlayin'

If you were at my Bingo event you saw our beautiful new Picture My Life program and the dual sided cards that will work perfectly with your photos.  You were able to make your own PML page using these cards and hopefully saw just how wonderful they are.  If you missed my Bingo event, you missed out!

Here is a short video created by Monica and Close to My Heart showing off the gorgeous cards and ways they can be used in your scrapbooks.
