Isn't she adorable!? I love stamps for the Greeting Farm! Too cute! She's from the Cheeky Collection and really looks a bit more vintage than I have her but I thought she was too patriotic to pass up. I ran the cardstock thru my fabulous Texture Boutique using the Stars and Swirls template and them sanded it (I LOVE my Tim Holtz sander). She needed to be sitting on something so why not a star. I colored her with Copics. I colored the sparkly stars around her with Copics as well. (LOVE those Copics!)
Hope you enjoy!
Until next time,

For whatever weirdo reason (it's probably me), folks haven't been getting email when I post something new. That said, if you would like to be notified by email when there's a new post, let me know and I'll hook you up. I do know that it posts on Facebook, but I know not everyone is on there.


Oh my gosh, I never realize how much I miss my computer until I have to take it in for a "check up". They're very quick at getting it back to me, but I must admit I feel a bit lost without it. I mean how am I supposed to check Jenna's grades!? LOL
Anyway, I was informed there was some disappointment because I haven't posted every week - I will do my best to try to keep up and do this (bunch of slave drivers - just kiddin, and you know who you are.)
So, without further adieu, here's what I'm planning on for Copic "Technique" class in May - Beeutiful Cupcake. I love this stamp - it's great for any kind of birthday or celebration. We'll bee using V000, V12, B00, B02, C7, C9, Y15 and Y17 to color our little cutie in. I believe the stamp is by Stampendous. The markers and the stamp are both available thru Scrap 'N Friends. If you'd like to take the class give us call at Scrap 'N Friends 833-2600, email us at or you can email me at and I'll get you in the book. Just let us know whether you prefer the afternoon or evening class and which markers you need. The stamp and the markers are both 20% off when you take the class.
Until next time!

Screens, Spritz and Butterflies - Oh My!

I've been working very hard to get ahead on my class schedule - so far so good! Here's what we'll be doing in my regular technique class on May 3rd. I love, love, love these Spritz Screens by Hampton Art. We'll be using the Graphic 45 Vintage collection. You can do lots with screens, use them with Smooch Spritz, Glimmer Mist, Chalks, inks. You can even us them as a stamp! When you sign up for the class you can also sign up to get the Spritz Screens (there's 10 5x5 screens in the box) and/or the stamp set - Patterned Bugs by Inkadinkadoo and to top it off you'll get 20% off both when you take the class! We have a great time in class and learn lots, so I hope you can plan to join us. To reserve you spot, just give us a call at Scrap 'N Friends 833-2600, email us at or email me ( or leave a comment here. Space is limited and we try to get the ordered stamps etc. in for the class so let us  know as soon as you can. Also, if you have signed up for a class (for any of our classes) and find you can't make it, please let us know. We have to make up the class kits and order products based on you telling us you want to take the class and/or get the product. Knowing ahead of time what we need to get allows us to offer more classes and keep them inexpensive for you.
As a quick update, there is still some spots open for Copic Beginner Class next Tuesday, April 12, at 6:00. Come find out what's so special about Copic Markers and learn some of the blending techniques you'll need for the Copic Technique Class. The class is $9, but you get a FREE Copic Marker as well.

Hope to see you there!

Until next time,
