It's all in how you look at it!

I recently attended a seminar about diversity in the workplace and one of the key statements was to take a second look to see what you might not notice at first glance.  Well, I applied that theory to this card!  I had a bunch of paper left over from a Christmas paper pack that is now retired.  What to do with it?  I took a second look at it and tried to see beyond the fact that it was Christmas themed.  The card below is the result and nobody I showed it to could tell!  I used my Cricut and Art Philosophy for all the shapes.

A Sarita Birthday

Here's a card my students recently made.  I used the Sarita paper pack and M1033 Heartfelt Birthday Wish (one of our super affordable stamps).  Before stamping, I sponged some lagoon and gypsy inks onto the white cardstock.  Then I stamped the sentiment.  Finally, I added some liquid glass to the open letters.  It's a simple technique but it adds just enough to the card to make it special.  If you click on this picture, you can see some of the shine the liquid glass added to the card.

Holiday Workshop 2013!

I wasn't going to do this but someone's puppy dog eyes (her initials are Tina O'Brien) convinced me to continue with my annual holiday workshop this year.  I have six designs to choose from, each with a bit of sparkle to them.  This year the cards will be $1.50 each (envelopes available for 10 cents each).  You can make whichever ones you want and however many you want!  Please rsvp with your order by November 1st.

Come share some fun, creativity, holiday music and goodies with me!  There will also be several little gift items already made that will be on sale!

Smiles, Caron

I just ordered a few more Studio J layouts and thought I'd share them with you!

 It's great when a paper pack matches your photos so well without you having to change a thing!

 My middle "baby" is 25!!!

 It's so easy to create accent clusters with My Stickease! You can rotate and resize to your heart's content!

 This was from an express collection.  I just had to personalize it and I was done.

The latest entry in my Disney album.  Can you spot the not-so-hidden Mickey?

Smiles, Caron
