Love...















I've been seeing a lot of lace and doily's around in cards & layouts throughout the web, so I got inspired to see what I could create with them. Found these cute 3" heart doily's at Walmart lastnight and thought it would be perfect with the Shimmerz.
















So I bought a pack of the white heart doily's and spritzed it with the new Vibez by Shimmerz in the color Razzle Dazzle Berry. I loved how it turned out.














I then found some valentine paper with the word "Love" printed on it...since it looked like a newspaper print-out, I tore the edges and distressed it a bit. Added some Pixie Dust Blingz to the edges and finished off with a satin bow.

This card style is out of my normal comfort zone, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I'm really having a blast playing with the Shimmerz line of paintz and spritz...you can pretty much apply it to anything with ease and the drying time is so fast. Also love the fact that it's water based, so easy to clean & non-toxic for the little ones.

These cards are on display at the store, so you are welcome to come see it IRL.

Add a Little or ALOT of Shimmer!















I wanted to make a sympathy card for a dear friend and came up with this layout using Hero Art's cling stamp, some Shimmerz and Blingz. The card has been modified a little from the original.

I simply inked up the Hero Arts "Large Flower" cling with Staz-on Opaque in Cotton White and stamped on Bazzill Kraft cardstock. I am loving the Hero Clings!!

Instead of markers, I opted to color in the large flower with Shimmerz in Magenta and Blingz in Pixie Dust. Unlike Stickles which takes forever to dry - these were dry in a few minutes, leaving a very pearlescent shine.

If you're interested in the Shimmerz line of paints & misters, I'd love to show you a demo.

Card Holder Class

We'll be making a card holder on Sunday Jan. 24th from 1:00p - 2:00p. With Valentine's around the corner, I chose pink & brown colors to coordinate with the cute Sweet Confections DP we just got in. The buttons are wooden flower buttons colored with Pink Shimmerz.













Open the card holder to reveal pockets full of fun! Going with the Valentine's theme, you can fill the accordian style pockets with love notes to your honey, some coupons for dinner, spa and other goodies. The possibilities are endless to your imagination.


So come and join us on Sunday for this class. This project can be altered to any occasion like Birthday, Baby, Thank You, etc. You'll get to choose your own paper selection. Just bring the basics. Call or visit the store to pre-pay & reserve your seat.

We're also offering the "Bring a Friend" program where both of you will receive a $5 credit to use towards your purchase the same day if you & your friend sign up for class.

See you soon!

All in the Packaging

I love the decorative flap of the Hero Hues envelopes by Hero Arts. They come in a variety of colors, but sometimes you're looking for that "something special" to hold your handmade cards. Why not make your own envelopes with the Hero Arts Envelope template? You can use any DP you want to match that special card you worked so hard on.

Simply trace, cut & score. Template will make a standard A2 size envelope, with decorative flap.
















There's also a template for the envelope liner.
















Now you'll have a beautiful envelope to hold your special card.
