Jingle Reflections Layout

This is a pattern out of the Reflections Book using the Jingle Level 2 Paper Pack.
Left page is Title Topper--Add Up. Right page is Main Frame--Quilt Blocks.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009


This is the 2nd layout we will be doing for the December Jingle Workshop.

This is a layout from Imagine using the Jingle Creative Basics Paper. I got this idea from another consultant and changed it up just a tiny bit.

A few other layouts I did using the Jingle Basic Kit. I haven't added the title or journaling yet as I am waiting to see what pics I put on them.

Cards using Evensong

I thought I would try to make use of some of the old paper packs I had. This was the Christmas paper from last year (Evensong). It used more traditional colors and I combined it with some of the new stamp sets from this year.

Look what one of my gals did!! Beautiful!

This layout was done by Vicky Jacobson from my Asheville class. This was based on a layout from Reflections. These black and white pictures of her daughter were perfect for this layout especially with the teal paper flowers and pink paper and stitching. She hand stitched every single flower!!

18 page Cherish Workshop using Animal Cookies Level 2 Paper Pack

This is Robin Garrow's 18 pg Workshop (9 2-page Cherish layouts) using one Level 2 Paper Pack. She deisgned the cutting guide to maximize the number of pages you could get out of a Level 2 Paper Pack. It worked perfectly. These are the pages I put together using the Animal Cookies Paper Pack. I wanted you to see them BEFORE they were embellished and without any photos. I will post again when they are completely finished. If you are interested in trying this workshop let me know. I'm going to try to schedule it sometime in August.

My Creations 3-Ring Binder

I decided to try out the new 3-Ring Binder using the Bella Level 1 kit. Since I will turning 40 next week I thought I would use it to reflect on what is important to me at this point in my life. Making this little book was a lot of fun and it made me stop and really appreciate all the good things in my life! 30 was hard...40 is going to be much easier!!

Close to My Heart June Campaign

The June campaign has been announced! There will be a special each day during the month of June. 24 of the 30 days will you will receive a free current product with each stamp set you order. The other 6 days they will offer "Mystery boxes". Each box will have current and retired products at a very steep discount of at least 50%. We will not know which days or what they will offer until 8am that morning. We will also not know what is in the "mystery boxes". The price will vary depending on what is in the box but they did tell us the more the box costs the steeper the discount. There will also be discounted shipping on these specials.

Here's a few things you need to know when ordering

1) On “Great Goodies” days, only one “Great Goodies” box and no other items may be checked out in a single transaction.
2) On the “free item with qualifying purchase” days, only one stamp set and the free item may
be checked out in one transaction.

**note that the retail value of these boxes will range as high as $300 US!

3) These are only available online.

If you have any questions call me or email me at
