Hi there Crafters!
How is your Summer Going? I have been so busy that I can hardly keep up! I betcha wondering what have I been up to and where have I been? Well last weekend I was at the Rayne Round Up that Treasured Memories put on. It is the best crop I go to year over year. I enjoy it so much! Their classes are so chocked full of techniques and new product! Let me show you what I am talking about!
This is my favorite layout of all time - it is a class that Connie and Janet did called Toadilly Techniques! I have a secret (maybe not so secret) obsession with Frogs. Heartfelt creations just came out with a Frolicking Frogs Line that is SOOO Adorable!
Check out the mixed media on this layout we made the pond! And the Rocks from cardboard and Media Gel and Artful Stones (new product)!
The rocks look so real! LOVE IT!
Then there was the theme of the Crop layout - Boots, Bling and Cowboy Things -
I can't begin to tell you how much fun we had dressing up and taking pics and seeing all the other people dressing up and taking pics!
Needless to say we had a blast!
I am sorry, that I have not had any classes or get "togethers" lately! My son is getting married next month and there has been alot of excitement and activity centered around that as well! We are so excited and can't wait till Carissa is officially my Daughter In Law! It is bittersweet - cuz Mom would have loved to be in the middle of all this planning! I still hear her giving me advice almost daily and reminding me of what needs doing!
Most of the time I have been working on a custom sign in book for the wedding - where the photos from the photo booth will be put on a mat in the book along with a square to sign in and post your wishes or advice or thoughts on. Here is the cover page for the book -
Now that the signin book is completed, I am moving on now to shower favors and Cricut Vinyl signs for the wedding - Who knew there was so much to do! Carissa is planning the most beautiful day and I am thrilled to be helping her! Needless to say there has not been much time to plan card classes or ScrapDat events right now - Things should get back to normal after September! I SURE HOPE!
I have seen the new catalog and I am sending all my clients who have purchased at least $50 since January a free catalog! So you guys should start seeing those towards the end of August! I am SO BEHIND on my Christmas cards and I am glad I am - because there are some adorable products coming up from Stampin' Up and I gotta have 'em!
Hope you guys are having a Fun Summer! Share with me what you are working on too!
