Beach Canvas

Happy Saturday!  We had the most wonderful weather here in Oklahoma today.   And I had the best time at A Memory to Scrap.  Some of us girls were there working, joking and telling stories and well......trying not pee ourselves. You know how that is when you reach a certain age.  Any way I think we all stayed dry, I know I did so that's all that counts. :)

Here are the pictures of the Beach canvas that I promised last night.  I really was happy with the way it turned out.  

All the paper used was from Creative Imaginations Tidepools collection.  Except for the wood paper which I am not sure who makes that.  The flowers are from Prima.  I used burlap, sandpaper and shells from the dollar store.  I know dollar store shells....what is the fun in that.  Well, my son is the one that went to Cancun and since he was 13 years old, shell collecting did make it to his agenda.  Four wheelers, horseback riding, bowling and showgirls all were in the top 5.

Again, the class for this is June 12th at 2:00 pm at A Memory to Scrap in Broken Arrow.  Hope to see you there.  Signing off for now.  Be safe...and create!


Hello there promised I have posted the picture of the Graduation canvas.  The handsome young man in the photo is my oldest son Brad.  He graduated from Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas on Mother's Day this year.  What a wonderful present for me! 

The class for this canvas is May 29, at 2:00 at A Memory to Scrap in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. If you hurry you can still sign up.  As I previously mentioned with a few minor substitutions you could easily transform this to a wedding or prom.

Tomorrow, I will bring you the next canvas for the June class.  It features Creative Imaginations Tidepools collection. 

I think you will like it.  Goodnight...Be safe and create.

Follower link not working

For those of my friends on Facebook who wanted to follow my blog, I am sorry.  Blogger is experiencing a technical difficulty and the link is no longer working.  I have sent a message to them and hope to get this resolved soon.  I will post my picture of the Graduation canvas tomorrow.  Goodnight to all.

Kiefer Baseball

24" x 24"

Before I go off to bed, I wanted to post this canvas that I made for one of my son's friends for graduation.  Thanks to John for his dedication to the game and his team and to his Mom for the photos.  I think he liked it. :) I used same paper from Teresa Collins Sports Edition, custom designed school paper, card stock, paint, felt and miscellaneous other things.

Be safe....and create.

Bo Bunny Peacock Lane

Well, I am back and have vowed to post to my blog at least once per week.  Having said that, now I will have to work on a project per week that way.  To catch you up, I am now posting cards I designed for my August card class using Bo Bunny's Peacock Lane.

To My Friend

 Ok, I wish that I could remember what cartridge I used for this unfortunately I can't.  I can tell you that I welded it together on my gypsy.  The gypsy has the wonderful ability to duplicate, flip, rotate and weld.  Making it possible to make a card out of most images.

I used this card for a card swap at the CKC - Tulsa sponsored by Paper Crafts magazine in August 2010.  I can't believe that it is already time to register for the convention.  Once again, showing my age....anyway the card swap was a lot of fun.  I am not sure if they are having one again this year or not.  If so I plan to attend, of course I will wait until the night before to finish my cards as usual.

I really like how this card operates. It swings open with a brad.  I also cut this out with my Cricut Expression using my gypsy.  I won't swear to it but I think that the cartridge was Accent Essentials.  However, any flower image would work. 

 I do have some more cards to post, but I am now teaching layouts and canvases at A Memory to Scrap in Broken Arrow, OK.  My next class is May 29 at 2:00 pm.  We will be making a 12 x 12 canvas with a graduation theme.  But it is versatile enough that with a few alterations it can be used for a wedding. I will try to post picture on Friday.  Until we meet again.....Be safe and create!!!
