May 28 - Window Frame Class

I'm teaching a class tonight at The Scrapbooking Cafe that I am VERY excited about! The class is called the Fancy Frame class but it is kind of a window like frame. This is the sample for the class, but attendees are bringing whatever photos they want on their frame and then we are going to customize theirs to match their photos, etc. So if you don't have princesses it is OK! :)

These frames are from Fancy Pants Designs and are SO fun because there is no back to them. So wherever you decide to hang your frame it will match your room since your wall color will show through as the background for your artwork. (See the hardwood floor showing through the sample?)

So if you aren't doing anything tonight and feel like taking a completely FUN and inspiring class give the store a call and sign up! The phone number is 419-524-2233. Hope to see you there!

May 25 - Heart to Heart Card

Got a not-so-new set lately that I am so in love with. Frames With A Flourish. The "Last Chance List" comes out June 1st which is less than a week away now and I hope this set isn't on the list since I just got it - but I'm sure loving it anyway!

This is a VERY easy and quick card that we did for the Card Night I hosted in May - it would make a great engagement, wedding, or bridal shower card! I'm having a bridal shower for my cousin in a few weeks and think I will use this one to give her with her gift.

Heart to Heart Card

  • "Frames with a Flourish" stamp set
  • "Priceless" stamp set (heart)
  • "Sweet Little Sentiments" hostess stamp set
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Basic Black Ink
  1. Fold your Kraft cardstock in half.
  2. On the front stamp your square frame in the center of your card with Basic Black ink.
  3. Then stamp your flourish on the top and bottom of the frame also in Basic Black ink.
  4. Stamp your heart with Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out leaving a border around it.
  5. Adhere it to the center of your frame at an angle with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp your sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the card.

May 22 - Summer Love Pendant

Oh so much has been going on lately! May is always a completely hectic month in our family - school's ending, 2 birthdays, anniversary, etc. as you can tell by my lack of blog posts. But I am excited to let you in on a little project I've been working on - a new website. I'm definitely keeping this blog, but I just needed more room. The site is and is a work in progress (if a link doesn't work I haven't finished that page yet). But I'm hoping to have it all finished up this weekend.

Today's project is a fun and easy one! My mom and aunt LOVE finding jewelry at garage sales, auctions, flea markets, etc. And while I'm not a big fan of jewelry I do love to comb through their "leftovers" in their garage sales to see what I can do with it. My mom had given me this big turquoise pendant. It was a little large for me to wear so I've had it in my drawer forever, but I recently got the "Summer Love" Rubons from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog and knew this necklace wouldn't be complete without a little rubon love.

In fact this is SO simple I don't think I even need to post the directions or supply list! I just used the pendant and the "Summer Love" rubons. :) Have a GREAT holiday weekend and be sure to check out my new site if you get a chance!
