questions...comments and classes...

Questions first...

The "use your scraps" fragement journal is indeed a class for this fall. actually bring your scraps to use...I'll bring the rest. Store owners will have all the info...SOON.

I'll be giving this class @ For Keeps Sake, The Crafty Scrapper and Frenzy Stamper...for sure. So...come join the fun! Additional info is on the sidebar to the right.

Lisa V...looks like I'll see you in Arizona for that class!!

I'm sooo happy that you like the journal...THANKS for all the sweet comments!

Nope...they're not mini brads...Those little accent dots on the fragments are made with the black glaze pen from Sakura. Try'll LOVE it, guaranteed~!

Someone asked about drilling into fragments. DO NOT TRY the CROP-A-DILE...I love it, but NOT for fragments. It cracks them...
A drill does work just fine. I used the Fiskars hand drill and you can also use an electric drill, if you're making a lot of holes...

I got a few laughs from your comments about the OCD...yep...I don't want an UGLY page in MY journal...trash it! I'm glad that I'm not the only OCD in the group! ha!!


My friend Cecile is in Ohio @ the Stampaway convention this weekend. Anyway...she called yesterday to tell me that she stopped @ a stamp store (SHOPPING!!)...I think it's called Stamp Your Art Out...and they had studio 490 stamps there. She was sooo excited that she grabbed a complete stranger & made her look @ them... ha! I had to get the kleenex out after that call!

So, they moral of the story??

They're SHIPPING NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE!!

And, incase you are wondering what happened here yesterday ...A whole new ADVENTURE.

It was...very exciting...It's HAPPENING, I think...late September...maybe October??

VERY COOL...VERY TOP SECRET...stay tuned!'s KILLING me NOT to say a word to anyone...I got excited just typing this!

Let's get to another fall class...

This is the Make it Merry, holiday hanging class. We start with a chipboard base, from Maya Road, add distress inks, grungeboard & lots of studio 490 stamps.

You'll have the option to use different background colors and any choice of stamps, to make it your own!
Here'a another sample...

Yummy dimension with grungeboard...

That's it for now...Next on the agenda...getting all set for my class tomorrow.

Keep those comments coming...Like I said's NOT fun to talk to myself!

I hope your weekend is PERFECT!
Make ART!
