Happy Halloween

  Happy Halloween to all of you!!!!!  I hope you are taking pictures of your little or big trick or treaters.  This year we tried Trunk n' Treat for the first time.  It was so much fun :)  A nice safe environment for the kids to trick or treat while the adults supervised from a not so far distance.  Tomorrow will be the big day.  Make sure you preserve your memories from carving the pumpkin to getting dressed to all of the fun of the begging.

  I have a big announcement for Tuesday!  You will need to come back to see what it is :)

Regionals Scrapbook layouts

     When you go to a corporate event, you leave with a sense of renewal for both your business and yourself.  This Regionals experience was no different.  The corporate staff truly treated us well.  The business classes were wonderful and the art classes were out of this world.  The next set of artwork I am going to share with you are the scrapbook layouts we created.

The supplies were given from corporate as part of our fees for the two days.  The awesome corporate staff had everything cut for us, for these 2 layouts.  That was so nice of them!!! 

The items we used were: Elemental paper and Sonoma paper, Pewter mini medlies, Mileposts shapes, Cranberry ribbon collections, Bronze glitz glue, stamp sets: Love Life, Happy Cluster, and Hooray Bouquet, and the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  If you are interested in purchasing these supplies you can go to my website or call to host a party.

Let me know what you think of these layouts!!!!!!!

Cards from Regionals

    During the Regional Celebration, corporate designed projects for us to make.  This is another reason I love being a consultant.  The projects at the events are so wonderful!!!!  The second best part is that all of the parts are cut for cutting by me. :)  On Friday, we made 8 standard cards (2 of each design) and then in the evening we made a different 4 using the 6x6 Kraft cards.  That is 12 total.  These are beautiful!  Let me know what you think of them.

We used the bronze glitz glue, 6x6 Kraft cards, Elemental paper, Dreamin' paper, pewter mini medley, bling, cranberry ribbon collection, and the stamp sets: Joyful Jar, Hooray Bouquet, Love Life, and Happy Clusters.  You get these items and more from Close to My Heart by visiting my website.

Operation Smile Auction Winner!!!!

Last night at the Close to My Heart's Regional Celebration, they had put out some items the staff was going to auction off at the end of the event.  I had spotted the 6 handmade cards from the art department, and knew I wanted them.  When it was time for the bidding, I paid close attention to items and what they were going for.  Then my six art department cards came up.  I wanted them!  There was a small bidding war over the cards...but I finally won them :)  My final bid was $45.00 for these beauties!  So worth it and so great for the children that we will be helping.  Our Regional Celebration raised over $2300.  That is almost 10 surgeries.

I will post more of the projects we made in the next few days to week.  You can help out with Operation Smile, everytime we have a home gathering.  Simply roll up your order to the nearest dollar amount.  Will you be helping out soon.

Trying Studio J

   Have you really tried Studio J yet?  I know some of you are not digital scrapbookers.  I prefer the classic but I am personally behind and with Regionals coming soon, the corporate office had us do 5 layouts in Studio J for one of our classes.  This really helped me to see the power behind it.  I will still do classic scrapbooking for many of my layout but I will for sure be building Studio J into my routine.
  I have heard many things like..."I don't have time to scrapbook or It's too mess or It's too expensive or You have to be super creative to scrapbook."  Well I have a solution for all of those excuses...Studio J.   Here are the 5 layouts we had to do for the upcoming Regional Convention.  My favorite ones are the first, second and last ones.  I love how they turned out and the techniques on them were very cool to learn.  Call me today to set up an appointment to learn more about Studio J.
