Quick Thanksgiving Pages

While working Saturday at the Shoppe, I had a request for a set of Thanksgiving Pages. I had to turn them around quick to get them on the calendar. I chose Reminisce Autumn Harvest Paper and used the Pumpkin side because the turkey side creeped me out a little.

The inks are Jim Holtz Distress Ink is the following colors. Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey.

Not on the schedule yet. It might have to be a kit class depending on how my schedule shapes up.

2010 Christmas Round A Bout Cards

My offering for the upcoming Christmas Card Round About. The papers are Reminisce. On the Christmas Tree I used Sparkle Mod Podge! Sneaky! The cards are supposed to be simple and easy to make. The class attendee's will make two cards at each of 6 stations.

A Day at Disney/Sparkle Mod Podge

Today I finally taught the pages "A Day at Disney" I created these pages a while ago. I had originally used Stickles for the glitter goodness. How ever I wanted to teach the class using Sparkle Mod Podge to get a feel for how my regular customers like it. I find Sparkle Mod Podge easier to use than Stickles.

I did have one student who allowed me to take her picture while she used the Sparkle Mod Podge. A big thanks to Debby Jones for her cooperation.

Debby seemed to really enjoy the Sparkle Mod Podge. We used two coats on the letters and the Mickey Balloons. After the class was over, Debby's review of the product was stellar. She is also taking my Spooky Two page class and is looking forward to using the Sparkle Mod Podge again.

Project: Reuse Reuse Reuse

Today was the day we decided to totally clean and rearrange the bedroom. We moved a side table and placed our 2nd spare tv on it. We have never had a tv in our bedroom so we will see how it goes. Dave swears he is going to leave it on the Spanish channel. However, I did re-use three Longaberger baskets I had stashed in a closet. I made them into a new smaller bedside table. Paired it with my Grandmothers rocking chair.

For the Love of Boomer

Here are the prototype Boomer Necklaces. I have three curing w/ the glossy accents. I am going to try and have the tiles be a letter in Boomer's Name. But all of that will depend on how many I have to make. I used Mod Podge Matte, Scrabble Tiles and pictures of Boomer.

Spooky Two Page

I wanted to do an EMO Halloween Page layout but sarcasm is hard to achieve with paper. Instead I decided on a not too cute Halloween layout with a Haunted Mansion Feel with a little bit of Adam's Family tucked it for good measure.

I used black, orange and green card stock, plus the printed paper I purchased at the Scrapbook Shoppe. I could not find any name or manufacture information on the printed paper. I cut the house out on the cricket cart - winter wonderland. I cut off the top and tipped it. I cut the spiders and the letters out on the Cricket Cart Happy Hauntings, the black cat is a sissix die. I used Sparkle Mod Podge on all black cut outs and orange distressed Stickels on the the letters. The house, spiders and cats are popped up. I found three clear ghosts at the Scrapbook Shoppe and added those to the house.
