Merry Christmas!!!

Okay so I'm only a year behind, okay I'm not telling you the truth...I'm several years behind in scrapping but these pictures were from last Christmas school parties and plays.  I had a fabulous day of cropping and sharing good times with my friends over at Create 365.  My motto for her store is Create 365...your first stop to shop and crop! I am having so much fun over at her store.  So many different things to purchase.  There are lots of little different things to look at, so stop and look around, it takes a little while to soak up all of the different and neat things she has. Enjoy!  Happy New Years everyone!

The Road Less Traveled

Hello all you scrappy people out there.  Have you been traveling?  I actually I have stayed put for awhile and I'm getting the itch to plan a trip!  Especially after making this layout!  It is made with the precious Studio Calico line.  I will be selling this as a kit over at Create 365.  You may pre-order this kit by calling 337-280-9877. The price is $22.00, and wow what a great deal, everything is done for you, like the globe and all the die-cuts, spraymisting too!   Once its gone its gone, so order quickly to get yours!  I have already had one customer see just a portion of it complete and she pre-payed for her without seeing the complete thing! How awesome is that.

Creative Christmas Camp 2013

Well, today was a HIT!  The girls were so fabulous! I can't tell you how great they all did.  I had some girls that have taken my classes for several years and I had some all new girls as well.  We had so much fun creating these books.  They loved painting, embossing and using their fabulous layered chipboard stickers to create these adorable "WISH" books.  The books would be great for Disney books as well.  They could be transformed into princess books or tinkerbell books.  The possibilities are endless! 
Below are a few pictures of the girls painting the letters on their books.

 This is Ashley, she has been taking my camps for several years now.  She is going to be my helper this summer.  She is awesome and I love how she works with everyone, she will be an asset to my summer camp! Believe it or not, I taught both of these girls computer lessons when they were 3 and 4 yrs old.
 This was Mary's first time at my camp, and wow she did such a great job! I loved having her!
 Group pictures of us with their finished product!  What a wonderful spot to take a group picture!

 Below is Madeline and several of her friends.  Madeline has also been to several of my camps.  Her mother and I go way back from working together at the Hilton.  We have remained friends for such a long time.  I even convince her she needed to get into scrapping and wow did she ever- she loves it!
 This fun little group here had such a blast today. Two former Laptops and Lollipops girls Alyssa and Paige.  They brought their friend Josie, I had a great time helping these girls!
 Mya is always so much fun, she is such a crafty girl.  Today, was my first time to meet Christina and wow she is a queen for our town and she showed me one of the books she is putting together- such a great job!
 I think this was the most fun, successful and stress-free camp I've had so far!  I can wait to see what the summer brings!
Thank you all for coming and everyone did such an amazing job.  The books came out fantastic!  Oh and we even had time to play with the prima dolls.  I brought a bunch of Christmas papers and they had so much fun designing them!

Write Your Own Story

Good morning bloggers...I hope everyone is having a great day.  I have to say I had one of the most peaceful days that I have had in a long time.  I spent most of the day and night cropping at Create 365.  I am so pleased to have reconnected with a very creative and inspiring person!  I am glad to have this opportunity to get to know her better on a different level.
Her store is absolutely precious.  Stocked full of great paperlines, cardstock, embellishments that I am just so excited to work with!
Oh and can you say I am in THICKER HEAVEN!!!

Below you will find my school layout that I made for Dax.  This picture was not taken with the added little information on the Photo card:  I added a cute little title that says, school photo- 2nd grade.  I used the Jenni Bowlin stencil paper and placed different colored cardstock behind the letters.  I also used the new October Afternoon school line over Create 365.
 The second layout I did was for Drew.  I used the same stencil and actually used it as a stencil with the modeling paste.  Amy was glad to show me how she had used this paper to do this technique.  She is so crafty, its unbelieveable.  I am so thrilled that she will be able to help me provide you all with so many new techniques that are clever and creative!
So as you can Si would say...I'm "Happy Happy!" Hope you all have a wonderful happy scrappy day...I'm off to work on my clients books now!

Twas' the Night Before Christmas...

when all through the house, not creature was stirring, not even a mouse!  I want to thank everyone who purchased this precious little layout kit.  It was a last minute idea, and I am so excited that Create 365 has asked me to make kits for her store. This Christmas layout kit is pretty much sold out, I will be putting them together soon and if I am able to make extras I will let you all know. She has also offered me to teach classes there if I wish.  Maybe one day I will.  I have been so busy lately.  I thought things would settle down when I stopped teaching monthly classes, but quite the opposite.  The job for my parents has been awesome.  Such a delite to spend some much needed time with my parents and learn all about their business.  I have continued scrapping for my clients as well as taking on a few new clients.  I have been asked by several people to come to their homes and help them scrap and use up materials that they have purchased.  This is awesome, I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I also have a camp coming up.  Almost finished with the project, just needing to add a few little touches before I send it out to the school for sign ups.  I am so blessed that so many opportunities have come about.
