Late to the Party!

Okay, so I’m a bit behind the times, and trends, I suppose, but it’s only just recently that I hopped onto the Tim Holtz bandwagon.  I had never used any of the distress products, so on a recent project for the Heidi Swapp The Art of Observation class over at Big Picture Classes, I experimented on some alphabet letters.  I  covered the C and H with Vintage Photo distress crackle paint, let them dry a bit, and used my heating tool on them to finish the drying time. I then rubbed some Walnut Stain distress ink into them, and and then put on a coating of the Rock Candy distress crackle paint.  Again, letting them dry a bit, I reused the heating tool and the Walnut Stain ink.  Here the two letters are, attached to my project.  I like the way they sort of look like leather, and since this folder is for a family tree project, it seemed fitting:

So Grateful

Wishing everyone a warm and comfortable Thanksgiving!  Here’s a card I made to send to a very dear friend (if it looks familiar, it’s the same card design found in the Autumn catalog on page 66):

This post is long overdue, but I just wanted to give a shout out to the folks at Fantabulous Cricut for the prize I won for my Countdown Calendar.  I received the Cricut cartridge Elmo’s Party!  What a fun cartridge – and there is a ton of images on there, plus a complete party pack.  Again, thank you so much!!

Picture Perfect!

picture perfect Gosh, I am so far behind on my scrapping classes it’s not even funny! That’s what happens when life catches up – or, as in my case, your DD comes home from college for the summer and you now have a playmate!! LOL But I did manage to pull out my Janome craft sewing machine and complete this layout.  I sure do miss having my DDs be little ones…
