Magic Layout #3

Yes, I know I'm late in getting this posted. I have been having camera issues and my hubby won't get the hint that I need a new one...

I'm still doing my honeymoon in Puerto Rico for the layouts. I did our trip to the Observatory - can you guess this was Rich's pick! lol It was actually very interesting. I used Emporium papers for the layout and Genuine Fun, Treetops and Classmate Alpha for the stamping.

This is the second layout in the Magic "How-To" book from CTMH. I had to rush because I forgot that I lent my book out and had to have another (thanks Pamela) send me pictures! I used the Unity and Fieldtrip stamp sets and Maginfique paper. Thanks for looking!

Magic Monday Layout #1- Parlor Trick

Even though these aren't the
best photos, the layouts turned

out very cool. I love the idea of

getting my pictures cropped and

trying out all of the layouts in

the Magic book!

Dry Erase Workshop

What a fun time we had making the dry erase boards! The best part was - everyone did their own thing! We all helped eachother with ideas and color choices, which made the night a fun girls night! Didn't they do a great job?!?

Lil' gift bag - for any occasion!

Did you ever need a gift bag and didn't have one? This little

bag was made out of some cardstock (heavenly blue), some B&T (splendor), ribbon...OH - and paper lunch sack! The girls at my July workshop each got one with some treats inside! Hmmm...future workshop project - Come and see!

Shirt Fold Instructions

I've had some requests on how to fold the shirt on the card I did. Well, I took some pictures and this is what I came up with. Besides, I don't think you would have understood "fold left thingie over to the other side to the other thingie..." Hope this helps! You can click on pictures to make them bigger.

1. Start with a 4x6 piece of paper. (you could go 5x7 or 3x5, but that ratio works best, I think.)
2. Lightly crease top in half, just to get a half way point for the next step - DO NOT fold all the way.
3. Fold both sides into middle (to that light fold mark at top)
4. Fold over top (towards unopened side) about 1/2 inch (this is your collar).
5. Turn over and fold top corners in, leaving a space at the top (collar) with points together.
6. Fold up bottom, tuck under the "collar" and make crease at bottom of shirt.
7. Unfold again
8. Fold out "sleeves" from crease to the bottom of paper, like shown.
9. Fold back up. Voila! You have a shirt. You can pierce holes and add brads as buttons if you wish!

Altered Tin

I made this cute little altered tin for my open house. It was one of the silent auction prizes...The lucky winner was my new friend Betty!

The tin holds a post it note holder and 4 magnets.

Used: New* CTMH Splendor Paper & Paper flowers


Well, if you missed it - you missed some fun! I had a two day open house and had the chance to see so many of my new friends - and make some new ones! Thanks to all of you who came out and saw the new product, made a card and played the game! A special congrats to the door prize winners! We made this cute card as the make-n-take (sorry about the BAD picture)!

My Mom is the BEST!

My mom's birthday was May 2 and I wanted to make her something special. I saw the rose on Jeanette Lynton's blog and had to try it. I don't however, recommend trying it at 10:30 at night....She loved the card, which is all that mattered! LOVE YOU MOM!
