Latest happenings.....

Hi friends!
I have some exciting news to share, plus projects from my latest LWP show! It's been such a busy month with school ending, baseball, creating new projects, tours planned and of course lots of work with CHA coming up just around the corner. So I wanted to let you know what I've been up to:

Bryan's little league team finished the season in first place and now they are in the playoffs with one more game left! It's been so exciting to watch the games and they have played like champs all season. I am so happy for him and his team! Let's hope Wednesday night brings the final win in the playoffs...

Jack finished his last final yesterday, bringing his freshman year to an end. He worked so hard all year long, including many days staying after school for study sessions and late nights working on papers, projects, etc...I am very proud of him and how hard he worked this year :)
................................................

And now for some scrappy news....Prima has a new Education team!



We have a brand new Education team at Prima and I am so fortunate to be on this team with some amazingly talented girls! Today is the announcement on the Prima blog, so check it out when you have the chance. This year- the team is going to be creating videos, sharing some amazing projects and you will see some of these talented girls on Live with Prima in the months to come.....

Sweet Card Set on Live with Prima with yours truly.....


This was such a fun class to teach and I just love Prima's Songbird collection-it's a great line to create cards with. I stamped, layered and embellished to my hearts content....

I also created two more cards after the show had aired. I demonstrated how to cut the base of the cards, but did not get the chance to finish them on the show....so here they are!


To create the little card base, I used a piece of the Songbird paper, my Cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz Sizzix die (Ornamental). I folded the piece in half and ran it through my machine with the fold inside the die. Tie a piece of twine around the card and create a faux ribbon with a strip of paper, notched at the ends. Then tie a piece of ribbon around the twine and decorate!


This card flips at the top, instead of the side (like the card above), with a piece of ribbon tied around the front. Add a stamped label over the ribbon and embellish! These little cards were so fun to create and this is a great idea for using leftover paper pieces......


These are the four cards I made on Live with Prima. If you would like to see how they were created, just grab a cup of coffee and watch the recording here! And be on the lookout for an exciting show schedule coming up in July! (There may be some new CHA sneak peeks....;)

I will be back shortly with some tour news! I am headed to Brazil in August and I can't wait to share more details on that....
Thanks for stopping by!
xoxo Cari
