Mother's Day Inspiration...

We are just a few weeks away from perhaps one of the most important days of the year...he he Mother's Day!  Of course in my humble opinion every day should be mother's day but then again I guess in a way it is -- as moms really do have the power to make the world go round.  But being celebrated once in a while does make us feel special.  So in preparation for that glorious second Sunday in May, I decided to invite you over to recreate my card - or as many as you'd like for $2 each!  Yes, $2!  You get your supplies, embellies and matching envelope and we will reminisce about the special women in our lives.  So, NEXT WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28 at 7:00 p.m.! Are you in?????

Creative Club Class - Address Book!

I am having so much fun creating and sharing with my Creative Club! It truly has been a wonderful complement to my layouts and cards as I get to experiment with different ideas and make useful and thoughful gifts!  So, for my third Creative Club, I designed an address book.  I love how it turned out.  I used papers from our Veranda Creative Basics and Veranda Level 2 paper pack.  The stamps featured for the 26 tabs are our Solos which are truly fantastic and are one stamp set per letter and the cover was inspired by the Spring 2010 Idea Book cover using the One of a Kind stamp set.  Lots of sparkles adorn the project as well as some metal embellishments including my favorite Foundry Bookplates.  A pop of color and dimension also comes from the Just Blooms Spring Blossom Collection.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun creating it!

If you would like to attend this class please see details below:
Class Date: Saturday, May 22
Time: 2-5 p.m.
Location: Deerfield Beach (at my crop)
Class Fee: $35
Class includes all materials, embellishments and a Cocoa stamp pad for distressing & stamping.
Email Me to reserve your spot today! You must sign up by May 7 to participate!

Hope you can join us!!
