crop’n part 2

well, the fun is over, all that is left is putting away all the gear i lugged to the crop!

the good news is that i was pretty productive, getting bunches of layouts, several cards and a project for the ClearSnap Blog AND my layout for my may photoFULL class DONE!

here’s some pics of the other layouts i did. since i keep albums for both boys, most of the layouts that have both kids were duplicated!





the mothers’s day layouts are for the photoFULL class, come to class and find out where 14 photos are hidden!





i’m crop’n this weekend with my friends tinka and charlotte and lori…

trying to get a few PERSONAL layouts done!

so far, i am up to 5 – 2 page layouts! i just want to get layouts done! don’t have to be fancy, just finished!

here’s a look at the layouts i’ve gotten done…





snapping and posting via my iPhone, so pics probably aren’t the best.

hope you are getting crafty this weekend!

class info…


there was some confusion about the date for the PhotoFULL and Money $aving $ketches class at Stamp Antonio in May…

Stamp Antonio shows the date for the class as May 9 – which is NOT correct! they will be updating the info soon.

the correct date is MAY 2! so please mark your calendars accordingly so you don’t show up a WEEK LATE to the class!

i apologize for the confusion.

the PhotoFULL and Money $aving $ketches class at Scrapbook N’ More will be held on April 30.

on another note, i had one class kit left for the “in the garden” altered book class; it is for sale at Stamp Antonio. you can call them at 210-764-7900 to confirm it’s availability if you are interested.

AND… keep an eye out for info on my next project… MISCELLANY! coming soon!


projects to share!


i know i don’t always post a lot of projects on my website, but that doesn’t mean i’m not busy MAKING THINGS! LOL!

right now i have a few projects scattered around the web and i’d like to share them with you…

first, a pendant that i created for GRAFIX was selected as the project of the day – 4/3/2013 – by Crafts n’ Things Magazine. they sent out links to the project in their april newsletter as well as listed the project on their facebook page.

you can view the BUTTERFLY PENDANT here: CRAFTS N’ THINGS FACEBOOK PAGE {https://www.facebook.com/craftsnthingsmag} just scroll down to 4/3’s posts and you’ll see a BIG pic of a butterfly pendant! i’d appreciate it if you’d give it a “like” or leave a comment!

you can also see it here: CRAFTS N’ THINGS NEWSLETTER {http://blog.craftsnthings.com/?p=5202}

there is also a YouTube Video that shows how to make the pendant step-by-step on the Grafix YouTube Channel: BUTTERFLY PENDANT {http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chs7sjS2ckI}

Grafix also included two projects i designed for them on a header on their website: GRAFIX IDEA HEADER {http://www.grafixarts.com/Ideas/}, the mosaic pendant at the lower left and ther CREATE decor piece that runs across the header. i made a video showing how to make the CREATE piece too; it’ll be out soon!
