Happy Monday, everyone! This week I wanted to talk about the Silhouette Cameo/Portrait. This is such a versatile machine and can be used in your card-making, scrapbooking, home d├ęcor, fashion and much more. Join me on Monday, April 13 at 1 to 3 p.mOR at 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to learn more about using the Silhouette Cameo. We will be discussing the meaning of the different icons in the software, how to use the Online Store to purchase your designs, how to organize your Library, how to work with the image that you have purchased and how to use the Text tool. If you have already purchased a machine and have downloaded the software on to a laptop, please bring your laptop with you to class. You do not need to bring the Silhouette machine with you.

I just had to use this beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye. This line is called On Trend. Just beautiful, love the colours. The butterfly is from Memory Box called Lunette.

Hope to see you out this coming Wednesday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Spring is in the air!

Happy Friday! Spring is in the air....but then we woke up to snow this morning, ugh! We should all start making Spring cards so winter knows it's time to go,lol!
Today I made a card with pink, green and flowers, when my inspiration is missing, I usually go to these 3 things. Sentiment is from Paper Smooches, punches from Martha Stewart, and some Nestabilities.
I made the flowers by using the flower making tool kit, so much fun. You can use punches, dies and even your Silhouette, lots of possibilities.
                                         Till next time, Anja

Open Scroll Butterfly PLUS Twelve Hour Sale!!!!!

HI! Vicki here, with a couple shares using Impression Obsessions

In the first card, I popped it onto the cardstock just as is, after colouring up this gorgeous flower from the Maya Clear Set. I'm sure if you love it, Sheila could get it in for you. It's also from Impression Obsession Stamps.
The sentiment on both cards is from this set as well.

For this card, I used the negative portion of my die, to sponge in the orange colour using Yellow and Orange Ink.  I then attached the die over the orange sponged background, creating my Monarch Butterfly. To add some dimension in behind the sentiment and to carry the orange theme in another part of the card, I stamped the border with a stamp called Hand Carved Elements by Balzer Designs, also from Impression Obsession!


Our Famous 12 Hour Special is on!
Enjoy saving of 20 - 50% on oodles of fabulous products, only while supplies last!!  Our 12 Hour Special gallery is loaded with crazy deals waiting for you!  Sold on a first come basis both in-store and on-line.

Fresh Brewed by Tim Holtz

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am showing the card that we will be making for our next Wonderful Wednesday. I used the new die from Tim Holtz called Fresh Brewed. Love this die, actually anything designed by Tim Holtz I love. I thought this would make a rest male card for father's day, birthday or just because. A little birdie told me that the ladies would like to do a gate fold card, well this is one version of that type of card. I stamped a coffee stain in the inside of the card, I thought that would just add to the card. This stamp was from BoBunny but the new Coffee Stain from Prima would work. The paper line is from Prima called Coffee Break of course. This is where my inspiration started. I did add a button to the corner of the cup, this is to keep the flap shut but you don't have to especially if you were going to mail this card. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
