Wow! I have some really exciting news, as some of you know I have been chosen to be part of the Inque Boutique Manufacturer's design Team. I am so excited because I love these stamps! It means that I will be creating samples for their web site, craft conventions, and publications. I can't wait to use their stamps in my classes for A Stamp 4 All!

So I've created this CD holder mini Album. You may remember the one Amy Crane made a few months ago, this one is based on her fabulous design. This particular one is going to be mailed away to Iraq tommorow as it was made for the son of a friend of mine who is over seas away from his family. I will be doing a class in the new year that is very simmilar. I love these Cosmo Cricket boy and girl paper packs and of course my Inque Boutique Stamps!

Its Begining to Look alot Like Christmas

Here are a couple of cards I've been working on. The tall one is actually a "scrap-lift" of a picture my six year old son made for me (except his was outlined with green and yellow highlighter drawn on lined notebook paper :D ). The second, I debated whether I should post or not because the background paper is not one we carry. But I had to share this fun technique I worked out! I took wool blend felt and ironed it over some of my Inque Boutique stamps to emboss it. I love how it looks and hope I can figure out a non-holiday project for an upcoming class (I'm thinking valentine's day cards). The buttons on this one are also stamped with Inque Boutique stamps and them embossed with white embossing powder. Oh, and the scalloped paper on the tall card? Made from a diecut here at the store. :D

Fairy Coin Album

If you've been in the store lately you may have noticed this altered coin album on the counter. I'm really excited to be teaching a class on making these on November 3 from 1:00 to 4:00. With this class you can either copy this one or choose different papers to customize it to your preferences. Because it uses ephemera no two will be exactly alike but I will have as many of the things that I used on hand as is possible. Some ideas of things that classmembers could bring are: tiny shells, coins, pressed leaves, acorn cap, butterfly wings (real or faux). If you want to go with a different theme you could try: baby's hospital bracelet, tiny toys, a lock of hair from baby's first cut, first lost tooth (tell your kids you bought it back from the tooth fairy), a scanned child's drawing shrunk down to 1 1/2 x 11/2 inches...
Please email me or post a comment if you have any questions.
