Halloween Goodies

A friend of mine got a hold of these stamps at Michael's in the dollar bin section.  She gave us a class on how to make these little creatures and it was a lot of fun. 

The baggies are from Stampin Up, the stamps as I mentioned before they are from Michael's and finally the punches i created using my Gypsy.  The wordings I found while I was researching on the internet.  I will not take full credit.  The only one I created was "Witches Warts"  Notice how I coordinated plain or peanut M&M's to match the wording.  Vampire's Blood, Frankies Fungus, Funny Bones.  I hope this helps anyone who is interested in making this project.   They are perfect for any Halloween party you may have.

I arranged them in the bucket so people were able to create this themselves.  Perfect for Halloween party favors or center pieces. 

Mother's Day Gifts

I purchased these "mini purse albums" at Michael's for $1.  I made one for each of my 20 students.  The following year I made a similar book using Sizzix Album die cut pattern.  All the moms have loved the gifts I have created for them.  I need to start getting creative this year because I have 29 students!!!

Card Swap 8/20/11

This was my first Card Swap in my Studio, and the ladies and I had a really great time.  It was good to get together again and learn how to make new cards.  I really missed having this class at the Memory Garden Scrapbook Shoppe.  Now we get to enjoy each others company in my home. 

As promised here are the pictures I took of todays class.  Our next get together will be in October!
 Jerry demonstrates her Back to School Card.  She's a teacher at heart!


 Alma's first Card Swap and it looks like she is having fun!

 Everyone get started!

 Everyone loves the card they are making.

 Always learning new techniques.  Yolanda, taught us how to do a technique called masking!
Thanks Yolanda!
 I know Ayde you don't loke to take pictures. 

 Alma, hurry up!  You are holding up the line.

 Jerry was so good on waiting on us. 

 Christine got a little creative kick and added to her card.

 This is when Yolanda taught us how to mask in a card, this was a very interesting technique.

 Christine showed us how to make her card.  I loved the colors.

More photos of the girls getting to work on their cards.  Yeah Jerri and Alma!

This was our final result of our cards made today.  Each beautiful and unique in their own way.  Start planning your next card for our next gathering in October.  It will be your choice of what you would like to create.

Serendipity Scrappin Studio

Here are a few pictures of my new studio "Serendipitiy Scrappin Studio." 

 This is one side of the room where I have paper racks and two tables.  Later, I will add more seating and of course more paper.
 This cabinets houses all my tools and Creative Memories Product.  Its neat because the drawers are really deep and holds all my stuff.  When I was working on finding a home for all my stuff, I never realized how much I had until this day.

 This is the other side of the room.  More tables and chairs. 
This is the back side of the room where  Joe built to hold the water heater, laundry baskets and of course the washer and dryer.  This way when friends come over they don't see all this.

I am looking forward to having scrapbooking classes, card making classes as well as crop nights and cricut nights.

Administrative Professionals

I gave our secretaries a small token of appreciation for all they do for us.  Thanks ladies for an outstanding job!  The contents of the coca cola glass was a survival kit to them.  Later I will post the writing to you.
