Welcome Summer!

We have had some sunshine in the Great Northwest!  I am loving it and continue to get some of my "sun" from the Splendor paper packet.  Here's one card we are making for my workshop this weekend.  The little hedgehog is from the July stamp of the month.  Enjoy the sneak preview and I still have room in my Friday workshop if you want to join me

I missed a new Art and Soul Episode!

Did you see the May Art and Soul episode?  Somehow, I completely missed it.  Just thought about it today when I was thinking about the fact that a new June episode should be airing soon.  If you haven't seen it, take a look.  Overstamping is the featured technique and it is an easy way to show depth and movement in your stamp.  Plus a Studio J tutorial for quik titles.  Full on helpful tips, ideas and reminders, Art and Soul is a great source of inspiration.  And watch for a June episode soon. 

Jackpot June Continues

Today is chipboard day.  I love using chipboard on my scrapbook pages.  You can see som of my chipboard projects here, here, here, and here.  You can stamp on them, use liquid glass, heat emboss, cover with paper, ink them solid or even leave them plain white!  Dress them up with buttons, brads, waxy flax, and many other embellishments.  Love them!  Stock up on your dimensional elements aka chipboard here.

We interrupt this Jackpot June 3 for some more Cherry-O

My workshop weekend is coming up June 4th and 5th.  I have done 2 of the 3 layouts but needed a third to finish off the full workshop.  Well, in comes Studio J!  I had printed these photos but hadn't used them yet so I played with them in Studio J and created this layout!  Although I may print it in the future, I now am working on it with classic scrapbooking for my workshop.  And, since it was a birthday theme, I am looking forward to using the "Hey there Cupcake" stamp set to embellish and title the celebration.  Studio J, it can be used for planning too!  When I am finished, I will post my classic layout for you to see as well. 

I still have room in my "mini" workshop June 4th 9:30 a.m. and June 5th 6:30 p.m. and you can come make 3 cards or this layout for $5.
