with wink of stella glitter markers…
that i made this…
because i hand cut, colored, and stamped each butterfly…
but, it will look great in the booth…
what a great way to get vibrant color with glittery shine — with NO mess…
yes. i am cheating on my husband with glitter pens.
he’s coming in as a close second.
these pens by zig are rocking fun, super easy, and beautiful.
here are some things i did with them on a layout of the kid. i colored the paper with gold and silver, the dies cut words, and the seahorse. i then covered all but the title with gel medium to add texture! so stinkin’ cute and fun! the die cut words are a new obsession with thin dies and my cuttlebug. i bought these from papertrey ink. they are very intricate and easy to cut.
yes, we have all colors in stock!
i love this show. love it. it’s our fourth time being a vendor, and it feels like coming home.
i love the people, their style, their accents, their personalities, and the time i spend with them. i can say y’all and NO ONE giggles and says:”you must be from the South!” because they say it too. now, dont get me wrong i do love the northerners with their cool sophistication and amazing talent to make me laugh until my sides split!
but, im from the texas area and it just feels like home. here are my amazing classes for this show:
HUGE PRIZE GIVE AWAY IN EACH CLASS!!!
These will not be just wimpy door prizes!
I’m making a basket for each class to be given away!
Oh, and of course there will be normal door prizes, too!
The kit has so much product that it has taken me months to order and organize myself to be able to kit. You are going to receive Glitz papers, Authentique papers, a pack of iRock gems from Imaginese, Bling from Want2Scrap, 24+ flowers, alpha stickers from Authentique, seam binding, tulle, Jenni Bowlin stickers & buttons, twine, prima embellies, tickets, and cardstock.
you know me. i like paper that pop and grab attention. these layouts rock. This kit is full of fun embellies and papers: washi tape, alpha, cardstock, pattern papers, rub-ons, jounaling cards, seam binding, more journaling cards, twine, more embellies, etc……………………..
This is an awesome class! I lovvvvvve mine on my refrigerator! LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. It is an interactive board that allows you to switch pattern papers and photos. This picture does NOT give it justice!!!!
so, i have this project that i am trying to finish for the booth using crafter’s workshop. i love their templates and we have tons of them. i know b/c i am the one who has to inventory them.
i want to make a showdow box of a pic of livie, my niece. well, in the pic there is a picket fence in the background at the beach in gulf shores. this is exactly a year ago. of course i never buy stickers, because i like to make stuff/alter. here are the results of my fence. i think it came out better than i had imagined.
i used coffee stirring sticks from a coffee shop at the new orleans airport – dont know where else to find them – and the pictured distress products. simple.
what a show! i dont know what else to say. it was a crazy ride. but, i love seeing my friends and making new ones. terri and i of course got lost in Philadelphia. it always happens in PA! their streets are even numbered, but we still manage to drive around in circles.
we did eat at the same restaurant for three days! it is called max and erma’s. good tasting food! awesome burgers and desserts.
on the home front, we bought the kid a new car! she was so happy and excited. color guard practice started today. she loves it, but i always feel like she is never home. our pool guy is working hard to clean up that mess of a pool. maybe we can swim in a week – or two!
here is a new and an older layout:
the first layout is pink paislee portfolio with their resist hearts. i love those hearts. i want them on everything. buttons are jenni bowlin and resin flowers are mon ami gabby. and dollies are martha stewart. they are so nice and thick. i hand cut the blue hearts. i like how they are not the same size and shape. the orange is heidi swapp’s mist, but we are not carrying it anymore b/c it’s now in michael’s. so, you buy it with a coupon. the background paper is pink paislee’s resist paper with granite glimmer mist. my new favorite combo is granite glimmer mist with weathered wood and china blue distress ink together. yummy color of blue.
second one is basic grey with some vintage goodies and prima gears. oh, and a tim holtz charm.the black twine is american crafts. i am obsessed with wrapping twine and baker’s twine around my layouts. so vintage looking and cheap!
my prayers go out to the people of boston. i go to manchester, new hampshire in a week, which is only 35 minutes from boston. it’s such a great city with so much of our melting pot that represents our fine country. the older i get the more crazy people seem to be. who knows why, but we as americans can survive and prosper. thanks for taking time to read my silly thoughts. i hope all is well with you and yours.
Here ya go, jaxson! I love this sweet little boy with his blonde hair. It will be in the booth starting Thursday by either the distress markers or glimmer mist – not sure yet! I’ll let Teri decide. Love all the white. It really shows his bib and hair! Of course there is that lovely stamps of life background stamp. Easy to use. See ya in valley forge on Friday and Saturday.
so, you know how much i love mists, right? well, i’ve made a deal with tattered angels and we will now carry even more their glimmer mist and chalkboard mist. LOVE!!!! This meant that today I just had to play with glimmer mist. i bought this new stamp from The Stamps of Life. I LOVE these stamps. I am totally addicted and not in a good way! I see Stephanie at shows and we are both bad in each others booths! oh, and i am a member of her monthly club. I made this today:
I stamped using Stephanie’s new gumdrops background stamp and embossed in Distress embossing powder (black soot), colored with many shades of Distress Markers, sprayed with graphite glimmer mist, and then edged with distress ink. It’s so pretty. I’m going to use Jaxson’s pictures with it. Can’t wait. But i wanted to share the big news about starting to carry even more glimmer mist and chalkboard mist. have a great evening.
