A House of Cards

I have been working hard this week...

but I can't show you anything yet. I have been busy (and still am) getting projects done for the upcoming CHA trade show. It is so fun to get to work with new products, but it is a lot of work. Whew!

Tinkering Ink has some new lines coming out and they have been sharing sneaks on their blog. Check it out here. Lot of fun colors and prints. YUM!!!

In other news, I have a little secret but I can't share just yet. I will give you a little hint though.

Does that help at all? I know the hint may seem a bit Odd, but that is all I can give you for now. ;)

I will leave you with my take on sketch 55 over at the Sketch This blog. You should head on over and check out what of all of the girls came up with. It is always so fun to see how everyone interprets the sketch.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

I know that I haven't updated in a while, but I have a good excuse... I was on vacation. We went to summer camp at Callaway Gardens in GA and had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful place, and it had the feeling of the resort in the movie Dirty Dancing, but I never did see Baby or Johnny. ;) If you ever get the chance to go, I would highly recommend it. While we were there, I celebrated my 38th birthday. YIKES!!! I am getting old! It was a good one though.

I recently checked the Creative Imaginations site and saw that the June and July Art Bar Projects are up, so I can share some of my recent Creative Cafe projects. First off are some fun, little 4th of July favors. These use the Spirit line. Can't go wrong with red, white, and blue!

Next up are some cute water bottle sleeves using the Lucky line and Creative Cafe stamps. They would be perfect for a summer party.

Lastly is a welcome sign I did using the Spirit line and an AccuCut die-cut arrow. Such a fun, versatile shape.

For instructions on these and many other projects, check here for a LSS in your area that carries Creative Cafe.

Also, if you haven't done so already, you can head on over to Creative Cafe's new blog here. You can see tons of inspiration by the design team using Creative Cafe products, and it is updated often. Be sure to check it out. ;)

Well, I guess that is it for me today. I need to go work on some things. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I didn't realize...

it had been so long since I last posted. It is so easy to let this blog slip my mind. Sorry.

The new sketch at Sketch This blog is up. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. If you need a little push to get your creative juices flowing (or even if you don't), there is lots of inspiration for layouts and cards and a wonderful sketch by Janelle. Here is my take on #53:

Here is my take on sketch #52 also. I forgot to post this last week.


I wanted to let you know about the new Creative Cafe blog. This is a great place to find inspiration for using Creative Cafe products. It is pretty new, but the design team will be adding lots of projects, so check back often. I will leave you with a fun little Creative Cafe card I made a while back and forgot to share.

Hope you all have a great week!
