Layered flower

I made this layered flower from a tutorial I found on  Mercy Kerin's blog here is the link,  I used Caboodle level 2 paper pack to make it.

Here is the top view,

Here is the side view.

See how versatile this paper pack is?  I am really starting to like it.

Happy Scrapin',


3" x 3" cards and a jar.

I played around today getting ready for my workshop tonight and made these cards and the jar for the drawing for the FREE stamp set.

This one is made using Top Stitch.

This one is made using Veranda.

This one is made using Caboodle.

This is the Jar that I covered with paper from the Caboodle Level 2 paper pack, for the drawing for the FREE stamp set.

At first I didn't really like the Caboodle paper pack but the more I play with it, the more versatile I find it is.  I have made several cards using Caboodle and it works for Boy or Girl cards.  It's nice to have such a versatile paper pack, you just need to use your imagination, the possibilities are endless.

Happy Scrapin',

Caboodle Workshop - March 6, and March 20, 2010

Here is the Caboodle Workshop On The Go main layout.  I still need to add the Title which reads "NO RULES!"
My Granddaughter Hailey is sporting the blue clothes and helmet.

Here is the alternate layout and again I need to add the Title, this one reads " Best Friends".  My Granddaughter Hailey is wearing the orange outfit.  Jo is 2 weeks older than Hailey and they have been best friends since birth.  I just love to watch these two playing together.  They are not the typical 4 year olds.  One day Jo told my Granddaughter Mary that her mommy shaves her legs with whip cream.  So of course I had to ask, which works better.  

The Workshop On The Go Brochure has complete instructions for these cards.

The Workshop On The Go brochure tells you what "How to book" you need to find the instructions to make these cards.

I hope you like these projects, I will be adding a few more as I get ready for the workshop on March 6 and March 20, 2010. 

I hope to see you at the Workshop.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful day.  I did.  For the first time in a very long time My hubby and I slept in, and I mean slept in.  We didn't get up till noon.  I don't think Steve has slept that long since the last time he went overseas.  Which has been about 10 years.  I get to sleep in a lot, but mostly it's because I have had a rough night with my back, and it's not till noon.  Any way, after we got up, Steve took me out for breakfast. I had a wonderful time.
Below are some of the cards I made for my Valentine's.  They are all made using the Veranda paper pack and the Petite Perks stamp set Bee Mine.  I also used the February Word Puzzle D1269.

This one is for my hubby.

This one is a candy bar wrapper.  My Son loves the Hershey's Dark Chocolate bars, so I always give him one on the holidays.

I made 5 of these for my Grandchildren and my Great nephew.  I put flower seeds inside them.  My Grandchildren love to help me in the garden and I thought this would be better than more chocolate or sugar and it will last all summer.

I forgot to take a picture of the other card I made and gave to Dawn and Charlie.  I will try to get a picture of it to post.

I have been working so very hard trying to get a workshop started and just when I think everything is falling into place and I have people coming to my workshop, I forget to pick up the key to the community room where I am holding the workshop.  Well, fortunately for me, I had cancellations.  I feel like a complete Ditz, if there is such a thing.  Wow, I thought I had everything in order.  I booked the community room for the 1st and 3 rd Saturdays for the rest of the year.  I had my artwork done, my gathering project was done and as I started to pack things out to the van I realized what I forgot.  So, I let everyone know what a ditz I am and invited them to come next week and make fun of me.  Maybe that will get someone to come to my workshop.

I hope you enjoy my creations.

Happy Scrapin',
