Busy busy!!!

Hey friends!!

Hope you're enjoying your summer....I am! But it has been so busy with projects, classes, and getting ready for CHA! I have some LO's ready for the Prima booth and I'll be able to share them with you before I go. I just have to wait for Prima to post them on their blog before I can put them out there. It's so hard to wait and not share all at once.

Their new lines have to be some of my very favorite to date! Adrienne, my sweet friend, has come out with some of the coolest paper lines I have ever seen! So different and so rockin! IOD came out with a gorgeous new line that is so soft, magical and in a color combo that will push everyone outside of their comfort zone--which to me--is so exciting! And the flowers......let's just say-they are gorgeous, fun and so different from anything out there. I don't know how they keep coming up with amazing products every time....but they do! The list goes on and on, but you can see everything for yourselves over at the Prima blog. Too much to mention and I think you'd rather see everything instead of me rambling on about every little thing.....LOL!



Here is another LO I can share! Miss Frankie-the adorable little baby that steals my heart! Holly is so lucky to have such a sweet baby! My dear frined Nic took this photo of her during one of their sessions. Nic-you are becoming quite the photographer!! And thanks for letting me use this pic! MMMwwwaahh! The new paper line is Animal Bash by Adrienne Looman for Prima. I just adore the hand drawn animals and squiggles as well as the colors---LOVE it!

I used a ton of flowers as usual, hand cut out some little animal images to tuck in here and there, alcohol inked the letters to match and layered.....

Hope you like it!





On another note-This is the OA mini i am teaching tonight at my LSS. The mini was a labor of love. Can you say...a ton of pages?? Hope everyone likes it!!



And, last but certainly not least, my sweet friend Jeni B. is teaching a fab class over at Bad Girls! Lots of ideas and how too's using felt! I love that stuff! She is too cute and her classes rock! I think you'll have a blast creating once you take this class.

Here are the details::


Swaynk©

Online Class taught by Jeni Boisvert

July 14th - 16th$


This technique based class with open your eyes to all the treasures hidden inside your current scrap stash. Together we will transform felt, ribbon, and fabric into adorable accessories and unique embellishments that will be perfect for any outfit or project! We will use found items around your home as well as find new uses for old "doo dads" in the back of your embellishment drawer. No previous sewing skills are necessary to create your one of a kind Swaynk©. If I can make these, anyone can make these. This will be a three part class full of fun and different techniques that you will be able to use to futher enchance your all around artistic skills. I will demonstrate many different looks that you will be able to achieve as well as explore different uses for your Swaynk©. Techniques will be shown by video as well as step by step photographs. Just a few of the items we will make together are page embellishments, rings, bracelets, headbands, ponytail holders, gift toppers, and to bring a little Christmas to July we will also be decorating a Christmas tree! I am so excited to teach this class and can't wait to start making Sywank© with you!



That's it for today! I'll be back soon with more projects and stuff to share!

Have an amaziing day!
