WOW Wednesday- January

Well…technically not January, WOW class happened in February and…on Thursday.  Thanks for going with the vacation and my son’s birthday affected my plans.  Now, lacrosse is starting and it’s affecting my class schedule as well, so WOW in February, will really be in March (you all following?)

We had full classes and lots of fun!  Here is what we created:

This amazing card is called Faux Quilt and was from Dawn Griffith…as soon as I get some more gold foil, I’ll do a video tutorial for ya.  It looks harder than it is.



Found this from Julie Davidson and knew it had to be a wow….LOTS of die cutting but love the end result.  The designer papers are 2 x 2 squares (cut 5) and the white is 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (cut 5).  The Mint Macaron is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and the white mat is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4.  All items are layered on a 8×8 square of Night of Navy.  I purchased the frame at Michaels.  It’s a shadow box frame and came in a 3 pack for 29.99….and of course I used my 40% off coupon!



This idea came from pinterest and I was loving it.  Lots of browns, lots of sponging and I used the watercolor pencils for her hat/dress.  The distressing and sponging gives such a nice vintage feel.

Thanks so much for stopping by!    All supplies can be found in my online store at

WOW Wednesday- October

Yes, you are reading that correctly….I totally missed this blog post and I really don’t want to forget about it because really made some cool stuff!

Here is what we created, way back when….


This card has a video tutorial:  click here



A fun alternative to your Santa die!  Found this cutie on Pinterest.  Simply die cut Santa on the Pool Party cardstock and then cut his face right off.  Fun!



This project was made at my upline’s meeting by my friend, Carol Barr.  I believe it came form StampAmore?  Many of you had commented on it and so we had to make it in class.  It’s a gift card/treat holder.  Mints, Kisses, even chapstick fit perfectly!  Check out my tutorial:  CLICK HERE


Thanks SO much for your patience!  I’ll work on getting caught up before the end of the year, I promise!

Movie Monday

Got a little behind due to vacation…..I had the video ready to go, but my husband and I decided to spend an extra day in Florida before we met up with the rest of the family.  Our 20th anniversary was last Wednesday.  We took a break from our drive and did a kayak trip through the Okefenokee Swamp (saw some SERIOUS gators) then spent the night in St. Augustine so we could watch the sunrise on the beach Tuesday morning.    Then….the fun began!  We met up with my sister and her family, my dad and his wife and my son flew in on Tuesday and my daughter on Wednesday and then….a Disney filled Thanksgiving!  Needless to say, my movie did not get published and we are exhausted!

So, here it is!!!  To see the full WOW Wednesday blog post:  CLICK HERE
