10 Things I love about YOU!

The long awaited 10 things I love about YOU mini album is finally here! Mark off Sunday June 14th on your calendar for an afternoon of fun. This album is so much fun and could be used in many different ways. I have mine still blank because I haven't decided what I am going to do with it yet... my family, dog, best friend???? this mini album is not simply about husbands or boyfriends, it could be anything.... the color scheme is very neutral and because our Background and Texture papers are reversible, this album could very easily be turned into a very masculine or feminine book. It is very hands on and interactive with pockets and tags and 3-D elements. I just loved making this album and I know you will too!

New Episode on Art and Soul: Mementos for the Man in Your Life

I recently started watching the Art and Soul Episodes on CTMH TV and I have to say I am so excited to put some of these amazing techniques to practice. This months episode features a really cool photo wallet and layouts that are more masculine for those special men in our lives. this episode features the Campin' Fever stamp set (on sale now!) and using one ink color to create a beautiful wood grained patter simply by using first, second and third generation stamping and the rock and roll technique which are all explained in the episode. This months Art and Souls also shows unique and wonderful ways to use your corner rounder, to create little accents and scalloped edges. Last but not least Jeanette displays a delicious assortment of paper crafted cupcakes!

Click here to watch the video and feel free to email me your projects completed using the techniques or your version or the cute little photo wallet!

This is my version of the photo wallet. I made it using the left over pieces after I completed the Animal Cookies Workshop on the Go. I put photos of my brothers and sister in it and now when someone asks me what my brother and sister look like i can show them! From top to bottom they are: Cameron (5), Karissa (6) and Branden (9).

I was just so happy to learn a fun new project that I could use for me and cannot wait to teach it to everyone I know!
