This month my card class will be on Monday, June 27th at 6:30pm.  If you are in the Arvada, CO area and would like to come please let me know.  Each month we create 4 cards and the cost is $12. Here are the cards for this month.

June Workshop Card 1 ~ Calypso ~ CatScrapbooking.comDon’t you just love these flamingos??? I have to admit they have captured my heart as they are so adorable.  I adapted this card from one which was designed by Jacqueline Peach (stay tune as I will be giving you some more information in this soon).

June Workshop Card 2 ~ Balloon Ride ~ Animal Greeting ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis cute card was lifted from Michelle Loncar. I changed it slightly.

Hexagon Flower

WOW how did we already arrive in June?  Life has been very crazy so I have not had as much time to craft as much as I have wanted too (although I always feel that 🙂 ).   I was able to sit down today and get a few things done.  I have been enjoying participating in the Color Dare and was inspired to create this card based on this weeks challenge #96.


These colors – Sorbet, Creme Brulee and Crystal Blue are the colors found in the Balloon Ride paper pack.  I have been working on my convention swap cards using this hexagon patten.

Happy Crafting!

Base & Bling

Have you had an opportunity to see the new additions to the Base and Bling series?  I have to admit I was not completely won over when it first was launched in the last idea book. But with the addition of the pendents, chains, and charms; I am now a fan!  What I love is you can create your own designs in a matter of minutes.  It is really that easy.

Here is first necklace I designed.

Dragonfly necklace

To create this fun necklace I used a one inch square punch to the base paper which was from the Balloon Ride paper pack.  I then used the dragonfly form the Spring/Summer Petite perks stamp set. Applied a little liquid glass and placed the glass cover on top, how easy is that?????

Supplies used:

  • Balloon Ride Paper Pack X7180B
  • Faux Antiqued Silver Chain Z1940
  • Faux Antiqued Silver Square Pendants Z1962
  • Square Glass Cover Z1967
  • Dreamer Charms Z1955
  • Rhinestone Charms Z1978

I will be posting a couple other designs I did in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Happy Crafting!
