Naughty or nice?

You know that really nice clerk at the grocery store or the lady who always gives you the biggest cookie from the case?  Don't you think they deserve a little something special this Christmas?  I'm not talking about a BMW, but how about a handmade Christmas card to cheer their day!  Don't have any on hand?  Well, I have just the solution for you!

We're making a half dozen of the cutest cards next Sunday, December 5, at Jazi Crafts that you've ever seen.  They're full of great embellishments and use a variety of cool techniques so you're sure to have a fabulously fun time making them.  The best part is we'll make them while sipping cider and listening to carols amongst the nicest folks you've ever met (or haven't met yet!)

Join us Sunday, December 5 at 1:00 p.m. for an enjoyable afternoon of creativity.  Half a dozen cards, prepped and ready for your creative touch, and they include envelopes so they're ready for you to give away or send right away.  Sign up online here or call Michelle at Jazi Crafts at (760) 414-9645.

An old favorite...

Someone asked me about the altered cigar box project I made this summer so I thought I'd dust it off and throw it up here for all to see.  I still love how the vignette on its back with the magnetic paper dolls turned out.

The wheels are turning and an Easter/Springtime box is bubbling to the surface.  Can't wait to get my hands on the latest Cosmo Cricket designs sure to be launched at the winter CHA show this January in Los Angeles.

BTW, I hope my favorite blogger, Michelle Wooderson of Mish Mash, stops by to see my little ol' In Stitches cigar box.  She is truly a BIG inspiration to my own work, not to mention a lucky lady and designer for Papertrey Ink and Cosmo Cricket (my favorite companies!)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone -- gobble, gobble!

Autumn FlapJack at Jazi Crafts

Join us as we FLIP over another fabulous FlapJacks by Paper Made Bakery!  These folded flap-a-licious folios are perfect for brag books and contain three handmade cards with envelopes.  November's FlapJacks are an ode to the cool, crisp days of autumn with hints of vintage brocades, warm apple cider and thankful thoughts throughout.  We'll use Amber Road patterned papers by Pink Paislee and there are loads of handmade embellishments to use in this tastefully simple set.  You'll walk away with a clear stamp set, a 12 x 12 sheet of "postcards", and lots of other goodies.  Celebrate Veterans Day by enjoying a gratitude-inspired project THIS Thursday with Shannon Fralish, owner of Paper Made Bakery!
