Living in the Moment

This was a class this past week. I had the flowers with black left from a previous class so this is what I came up with. I used a stitched banner to match the white stitching on the leaves.

Purple mania

A poor last sheet of patterned paper left on the sales floor so I turned it into a page for sale. But then liked the results. So found similar papers and made Page Kits for the store.

More teeny roses

 And a double page with all the same elements.  and the teeny roses added to centers again. I did a video on our FB page on how easy it is to make them. Be sure to check it out. We carry the dies to make these flowers yourself for your pages and cards.
I inked the tips of the flowers.

Burlap flowers

We got in these cute little burlap flowers and I was waiting to use them. I was using the patterned paper for an upcoming class and noticed they also matched the paper perfectly. This is a page for sale.

Fall Floral Page

 Just a easy page because I liked the paper. I usually don't get to do many fall projects since we start Christmas at the store in July. And the fall color palette is my favorite.
I used one of the new Cheery Lynn floral dies. And used a stylus to curve the longer fern ones.

There were only 4 sheets of the peach patterned paper left on the floor. Connie and I have been on a mission to make pages for sale out of the ones with very few left so we can make room for all the new product arriving.

Not Again

 I spent the entire past weekend in my craft room working on projects for the store but took time out to do a couple pages for myself for a change. The photos are from a year ago and I haven't even dressed them for a photo op this year at all! Not even at Halloween time. Sad when I don't even have time for that. See how tolerant they are of me?
This is a double bow made by the Bow-It-All and I have a video on the stores FB page showing how easy it is to use. It's my new toy to play with. You'll be seeing more bows from it in future posts and classes and Page Kits and make-n-takes.

Large flower

I had made a 2 foot flower for our Annual Cancer Crop and someone requested a class on it. I made one out of patterned papers for the class so they can see a solid and a pattern design. And I'll just hang it in my craft room at home when it's done. I went to Iowa to the Taylored Expressions Stamp Joy in October and got a tour of the warehouse and craft room. They had several sized paper flowers decorating the craft room and I thought it was a perfect thing!
