Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Marco’s Paper

Yes, Saturday was a fun time at Cherry Blossom Studio! Not only did I get to crop, but to have fun with friends made it a better day. I got everything done that I brought with me to work on! Pretty exciting I must say. According to the girls though, I do that every time I crop.

Hmmmmm, not exactly what I remember since I end up going home with plenty of UFO’s (un-finished objects) to be completed at yet, some later date. Could those be what is crowding the box underneath my punch stash???? Why YES it is – let’s set a crop date to complete those UFO’s. Who’s with me?????

I did succeed in making a card with my leftover Panama Jack stash (see previous post). I did not take a picture, so go to Cherry Blossom Studio to see it in person.

I got 2 other cards done with some scraps and stamping. Used some SU stamps that I’ve had for some time and LOVE the design. I think the set is called “Provencale” – great collaged images including a cool rooster. I colored him with Copics (LOVE THEM) and used my fav Spellbinders dies. It’s a rather simple card, but fun to make.

Stay tuned for more posts during the week of my other projects. You know I can’t spill it all in just one post!!! 😉

It looks like I’ll finally make it to Stampaway in Ohio this year! I’ve heard so many fun things about it from Greg and Karen at Marco’s Paper, that I’ve wanted to go for a couple years now. Well, not only does it look like I’ll make it to the show, but I’ll go to THE Marco’s Paper store too! Wow! Can’t wait! I’ve been asked to teach a class while I’m there, so guess what?? How about an Alterable Magnetic Easel class? Using Marco’s awesome Touche’ cardstock, Tim Holtz’ stamps from Stampers Anonymous and embossing powder from PK Glitz, the project is sure to be lots of fun.

What is an Alterable Magnetic Easel you ask? Well, it’s a metal stand that comes with magnets to display photos or art! They’re great for a desk, counter top or right by your computer. Easy to switch out the display item due to the magnets, it’s easier to use than a digital frame and it’s easy to customize to your style. Here’s a peek:
