School Year - August SOTM

It is nearing that time of year again, at least where I live.

School will be starting in about 2 1/2 weeks.

I used the August Stamp of the Month set, School Year, to make this card.

Happy creating!  :)

Large Card Box

Hey, all!

I re-typed and re-vamped my instructions for my Large Card Box that I lost when I dropped my laptop about two years ago.

These new instructions include updated photos, and I also added cutting guides.

I was able to fit 18 cards and envelopes into the box shown below, but with less bulky cards, it could fit up to 24.

This would make a nice handmade gift to give someone, filled with Christmas, birthday, or all-occasion cards.

It holds standard A2 size cards:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I sell my instructions for this card box for $4 through Paypal.

Payments can be sent to:

Happy creating!  :)

Be The Light

Every year for Convention goers, there is an opportunity to create a layout for a contest.
(I wasn't one of the top 10 winners this year...)

This year's Convention theme was "Who Tells Your Story?", and in keeping with the theme, we were to create a layout that tells part of our own personal story.

I chose to create a layout about me and journal about my recent struggles with a severe anxiety disorder that seemed to come out of nowhere, fast and hard, like someone turned a light switch on... and left it on.

The page has a flip-flap that flips open to reveal my hidden journaling.

And this is my story that I shared...

I talk openly to anyone and everyone about my anxiety, as there is no shame in it.  We are not alone in these struggles in our lives.  I certainly am not the only person in the whole wide world that is dealing with this.  Although the details of my story may be slightly different than others struggling with anxiety, I have and am travelling down my own path of healing and enlightenment.  All struggles come with learning.  And I have learned so much, about life, about myself.

If anyone reading this is needing to reach out to someone, please know I am more than willing to be an ear for you.  And if you want to hear about it, just ask and I will share with you what I learned through my personal journey and how I tackle my anxiety head on.  Just send me an email...

Wishing you all Love & Light!

And happy creating!  :)

Preserve Your Memories...

I used embellishments that were left over from all the Convention layouts that we made to create one more layout.

I used an exclusive Convention stamp set we received called Who Tells Your Story for the stamped images.  I loved this quote and just had to use it.

The Bashful coloured ribbon was the one that was tied around our Convention stamp set, so I used it on my layout.

Happy creating!  :)

Jack Workshop - date is scheduled

You don't want to miss this class!!!

It is scheduled for September 17th from 1 PM - 6 PM.

Cost of supplies is $53.50 (no additional class fee)

Reserve your spot ASAP:  products are while supplies last, as they retire at the end of August.

If you cannot make this class date, just know that you can still do this workshop as long as you have the supplies needed.

I have clear, detailed step-by-step instructions for this workshop so it can be done at any time, even on your own at home if you wish.  (Or we can pick a later date that works for you and you can work on it in my studio.)

The only urgency is getting the supplies ordered before they are gone forever.  ;)

You can find more details HERE.


Another layout from Convention.

So pretty in the pinks and gold.

All new products.

Happy creating!  :)
