Still Love the Lillies!

Hello, My Stamping Friends!

Just a quick note on the happy, busy Easter weekend!  It's hard to believe Convention was a week ago.  It was such fun and inspiration!!  I loved it!  I made new friends and spent some time with Oksana and Cindy too!

The swaps are amazing and presenting me with such inspiration! I thank everyone that swapped with me!

This week, I have 3 classes--2 at the Cocoa Central Library on Monday and 1 at the Titusville Library on Wednesday.  If you are in the area or a seasonal visitor, just email me to sign up!!

Here are a few pix and then I'm off to get one of our projects for tomorrow ready!!

This is one of the projects for this week, inspired by one of the swaps pictured below.  Thank you fo Janice from Canton, Ohio for the inspiration!!
Here is one of last week's cards!  This set is already retired but I think I'll be hanging on to it!

 Convention swaps!  Aren't they pretty??
 More Convention swaps, including a number of great 3-D projects. (The inspiration for this week's second card is in the picture above.

Have a wonderful Easter and as they say in Spamalot, ''Always look on the bright side of life."

Happy Stampin'!!

Mermaids, Vellum and a REAL Mermaid!

Hi, Everyone!

I hope you are well and enjoying some creative time.  This past week, our classes in Cocoa and Titusville have enjoyed making these fun cards.  The Magical Mermaid card is one we did a year or so ago but we updated it with softer colors and a little more stamping.  It's a great way to introduce students to heat embossing!

Of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to include my little mermaid, granddaughter Emma, from a couple of years back.

I just love this card, if I do say so myself!  It's the Beauty Abounds stamp set and lots of Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks!  The belly band was inspired by a video sent to me by sweet stamper Jacqueline.  This is embossed vellum and a couple of favorite retires punches!

 Don't forget to take advantage of the "Last Chance" sales.  Say goodbye to our In-Color pretty color palette.  Boo Hoo!

Have a wonderful week!  I'm headed to Center Stage tomorrow in Charlotte NC!  Can't wait!  Come and stamp with us!
