Busy with the Store!

I have been working on Easter orders and enjoying every second of it!  My assistant is taking her kids to LegoLand this week and I made shirts for them.  I love my Silhouette and heat press!

Atlanta Bound

My sweet Leah turns 28 this week so Elyse and I drove to celebrate her.  Of course, I-85 collapses days before our trip. It took us a couple extra hours but I am not sure it was because of the highway closure. Despite the news and huge signs declaring the closure, there were still some confused travelers.


Brad and Leah’s house in Alpharetta, Georgia.

My beautiful girls.

Another reason for the trip was to see Beauty in the Beast together. After a few purchases at the Apple Store and yummy pizza at. Antico’s, we went to see the movie. I was blown away by the theater!  Reclining seats, space to stretch out, and assigned seats.

Fortunately the drive back was uneventful. Until we craft again, have a magical day.

Continuing the Cruise with Frank

I can’t believe the amazing “swag” bag we got from Frank.  There were so many generous companies and our bag was full.


Look at the stash in our swag bag!

Not only that, Frank gives us so much product to do our kit that we always have left over.  This is my new favorite collection.

From this Wild and Free Collection, we made this amazing journal.


Watch for future posts on the beautiful pages of this journal.

Cruising with Frank Garcia 

Oh wow. I cannot describe how wonderful our cruise was with Prima Marketing’s very own Frank Garcia. My friend Jodie and I flew to Los Angeles and boarded the ship on March 19th. While at sea, Frank had projects for us to work on. The first one was a beautiful multi-media piece that involved several techniques and products.

Even with a broken wrist, I was able to complete my projects.

Products used:  Memory hardware album largeWild and Free collectionresin framemetalware, gessotexture pastestencilpearlsartisan powderfabri-tacshells, and other miscellaneous  embellishments.

Ahoy Matey

When my scrapbook group was having a pirate-themed party, I decided to put a kit together to make a card with a Magnolia stamp. I love this little girl and all the images in the pirate collection.

Paper Dolls

Another craft I love is creating with Julie Nutting dolls. I made this tag for a friend’s birthday. I posted it on a FB group Julie Nutting Doll Club by Prima.  You will never guess what happened!  Julie Nutting commented!  What an honor.
