Thank you for a wonderful X-Mas Card Workshop!

We are really on track this year!! Last night we had a wonderful Christmas card workshop and we each created four beautiful cards that can then be duplicated to get started early on the Xmas Card frenzy! Different styles, techniques and shapes graced a lovely set of cards made with our Mistletoe Creative Basics collection.  I thank my super sweet customers for always supporting me and attending my events and I am glad that each and everyone of you left happy and with your cards completed!

Fall into Olivia...well its about time!

Ahhhh...Florida weather! Gotta Love it! Ya know, in weather like we are having now it is there is no question why so many snowbirds flock down at this time of the year.  It is gorgeous.  I do however, miss the beautiful New England days of Fall where the trees would be the ever so perfect shade of reds, yellows, pumkin orange and ivy greens that I had simply ever witnessed in my hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia.
Our next Workshop on the Go for November is called Olivia and it embraces all those tones that I am so fond of.  The first Layout (pictured above) is the one we will complete at our workshop.  I will be using this for my Thanksgiving pictures.  It features sanding, using a stipple brush, heat embossing and generation stamping.  The colors are Desert Sand, Cocoa, Smoothie, Sunset & New England Ivy.  The alphabet stamp used is Frienship Alpha Large.

The second layout, which uses a pattern out of CTMH's new Magic How-to Book, is really lovely.  As you can see, I have used it for my pumpkin patch pictures.  I added some stamped images and used my water color pencils for a shaded effect.

The card workshop that is included in this kit is equally gorgeous and also explores all the techniques used in the pages! Below are the pages I created using the Olivia Stickease- I love these stickers! I added some Cocoa Ribbon, Copper Brads, and our new Foundry Flourishes and voila: two more layouts!!!

So email me today at to attend my next workshop or go to my website at  and order your own kit which ships directly to you with a full color brochure with instructions!  Just enter Olivia in the search bar under shopping!

Have a great day! xoxoxo
