WCMD...Hurrah!

So I took a day off last week. Yep, right in the middle of the 8-5 work week. I took a card making class (instead of teaching one) and had a blast! Peggy Jo Ackley, of Pink Ink stamps, taught her colored pencil techniques.

Love this one...

I didn't veer from her samples so I could work on the techniques.


Did I mention I picked up a few of her wood mounted, red rubber beauties?



I plan to expand my love of colored pencils and old school coloring!



I finished up the cards (plus an additional kit I purchased on said Ferris Beuller's Day Off) on World Card Making Day. Yep, how apropos!




Hope your WCMD was a blast!

Best Friends

I'm on a roll!

I'm teaching at The Making Place AGAIN on Saturday, October 18 at 10:00 a.m. and this is what we're making...


Best Friends waterfall folio/album -- make this with me!!

I know. Seriously, is this not the most fabulous vintagey paper line you've seen in eons?! I loved the waterfall folio Ginger Ropp, design team member for Graphic 45, shared so I just had to turn lots of that gorgeous Graphic 45 "Raining Cats & Dogs" paper and embellishments into an interactive album like hers!


Interior of folio -- waterfall pages on right and fun pocket with tags on left

Flip the pages and fill with fur baby photos...

The colors in this line are just magical and the old fashioned images are divine! I love all the dogs, cats and pretty ladies among the old timey flowers and prints! My photos have a vintage cast to them, but I know you'll love the poppy red, lagoon blue, and striking black as much as I do.

The album is surprisingly uncomplicated to make, so later on you can create lots of different folios using a variety of papers and goodies.  This one is perfect for all of us "pet moms" with fur babies. It can easily be fashioned for dog or cat lovers.

Join us for a morning full of crafty fun at The Making Place in Escondido, CA.  Call the store and reserve your spot -- (760) 739-8605 -- the sooner, the better!
