I am teaching at Miss Art's!

Today I have 2 upcoming classes to tell you about. This is what's been keeping me busy and turning me into such a bad blogger!  You can get BOTH classes for just $15 as an Extra Credit Subscriber at Miss Art's Papercrafting School.  What a deal, right?  Here's some info about the classes.

First, a 101 level class starting on June 1st: Cluster Muster!

Then, a 201 class with Heidi Kelley and myself- teaching together!  This class will be a little bit humorous, with LOTS of techniques mixed in.  More about Sweet Snafus:

I'll see you in class!

Prima Palette for May

I love color inspiration, and this month's palette from Prima Marketing certainly provides that!  Check out this gorgeous color scheme:
 Here's my take on it:
That's my daughter, in her "bed" made from a laundry basket, with her stuffed animal in it's "bed' made from a toy bin.  It was very cute, and is a scene that replay's iteself often, as my children have a keen desire to make beds everywhere they go.  :)

Have fun with the colors, then make sure you enter to win!  Details are in THIS POST.

For Mother's Day...

I created this layout recently with a photo of my mom and daughter.  The papers are from Prima's "Melody" collection, and I used a lot of them!  There are no embellishments on this page at all!  All I used is paper and alphas.

Thanks for coming by!  Some fun stuff happening here tomorrow, so stay tuned!!

Prima Project Share

I have a few Prima layouts to share today.  These are from the Prima CHA booth in January, and I have been waiting a long time to be able to share them.

First up, this layout uses Sparkling Spring, and some Knitties flowers.  This line is everything spring and so beautiful!  I used a little of the flower packaging to add some additional details to the layout.

 This line uses the  Melody Collection.  While I don't normally gravitate to purple, I find this line easy to use nonetheless.  I think it's the combination of stunning patterns and details.

This layout is made with Sweet Fairy and a wide array of flowers.  I LOVE the colors and vibrancy of this line!

 Thanks for stopping by!
