Columbus, OH - We're Bringing Vegas and Hollywood Studios to You!

Some of my Red Letter Journals students have been asking for Disney classes and a couple of students asked me to bring the Vegas layout to Columbus, so here we go! 

The Disney layout features the Mickey Mouse wizard hat similar to the one at Hollywood Studios in Orlando with the word "Magical."  The photo mat paper for the two large photo openings is a sparkle/glitter paper that doesn't really show up well in the photos.

The Vegas layout features a variety of papers from the Reminisce Passports line that includes poker chips, dice, card suits, etc.  It is very busy, just like Vegas!

On Saturday, June 22, 2013, we will offer a double-header class at Red Letter Journals in Grove City, OH with both of these layouts.  You may choose to take one class or both, as you desire.

Please call the store (614) 539-3900 to verify the class times and reserve your seat!  I look forward to seeing you there!

Puppy Love for a Puppy Lost


A friend of mine recently suffered the loss of her sweet daschund, Bentley.  I was at Stamping Buddies last weekend and I saw this adorable stamp set.  The head/face is on the front of the card and the butt goes on the inside left flap so it looks like he is poking through the card.  The hind end sits on a spring so it wiggles, making it look like the tail is wagging!  It comes with the sentiment "Friends to the End" and I added some additional sentiments from the Stampin Up "D is for Dog" set that included "A dog wags its tail with its heart" and then the sentiment on the inside right side of the card that says "sorry for the loss of your best friend."  (not pictured)

I'm still working on my Copic marker coloring techniques but the card is pretty cute nonetheless!

Upcoming Class is Doggone Cute!

This adorable doggy layout will be the next class I teach at Stamping Buddies in Deer Park (Cincinnati) on June 9, 2013 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. 
The green and yellow circles in the corners of the layout are dog-tag shaped and you can choose to fill them with actual dog tags, your dog's name, pics of your dog(s), or these awesome new wooden pieces that Stamping Buddies is now carrying.
Please call the store at (513) 891-CRFT to reserve your seat!

No Time for Scrapbooking?

Like so many of you, my life has been crazy busy lately.  I have had some creative energy but no time to work with it.   Last night I blocked off some time to finish up some cards.  I hope to get some mosaic layouts done this weekend both for myself and for upcoming classes! 

These bicycle cards are for my nephew to send to folks who supported his school bike-a-thon fundraiser.

The hot air balloon card is to commemorate my mom's first flight in a hot air balloon this weekend.  It was a Christmas gift from my sister and I hope my mom just loves it!

Card for my nephew's kindergarten graduation!  I'm so proud of him for all the progress he has made this year.

Stay tuned right here for pics of upcoming classes at Stamping Buddies and Red Letter Journals - hope to see you soon!

If you have been wanting to make the Lego Layout but haven't yet had the chance, please take advantage of the opportunity to do so on May 18, 2013 at 3:00 at Stamping Buddies in the Deer Park/Kenwood area of Cincinnati.  I am told that the manufacturer is no longer making this Lego paper so once my stash is gone, so is this layout! 

Please call the store  (513) 891-CRFT to make your reservations.  AND - as a bonus, there is a trunk sale going on at the store that day.  Crafters will be selling their pre-loved craft items out of their trunks, vans, etc. in the parking lot up until 3:00 p.m. so be sure to get there early so you can check out their wares!
