I made somethin'!

I actually made a 12x12 layout! I have been so consumed with mini books that I haven't made a layout in weeks. I used the new Websters Pages paper and journaling cards, flowers, say it in crystals, center kisses from Prima, and of course glimmer mist in Old Lace, Sage, Hydrangea, and Vintage Pink. I sprayed the flowers with old lace, and used a paint brush to add color to the centers. I also used vintage pink on cream cardstock for my photo mat. One of my favorite pastimes is to pull out some patterned paper and match glimmer mist colors to it. I know, I know it sounds like I have too much time on my hands, but all work and no play makes Cheryl very unpleasant to be around! Dont forget, big weekend at Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista. If you haven't signed up yet, get crackin', I think there are only a few spots left. I'll remember to bring my camera this time, so I will have pics from class for you Sunday. Have a great weekend!

Catching up

I've been a bad blogger, and have fallen behind! Hopefully this post, and the next few after this one will get me up to date. Ok, coming soon: Saturday, Feb 28 I will be at Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, for the Reflections of Love class. This is going to be a fun filled day. Jennifer Priest is teaching her gorgeous crown book in the a.m. before my class. If you sign up for both, you could win a great prize! (Oh, yes, there will be Glimmer Mist). Hope to see you there! For more info on Jennifers class visit her blog, I have a link to it here on my blog in my blog list. I am going to update my list of classes today, so check out what's coming up. I'm still adding classes for March and April, so there will be more to come later. Also, we're getting ready for Gypsy Caravan at Scrapbook Blvd March 21. This is going to be a super fantastic event with lots of Gypsy treasures for you. Be sure to sign up early so you don't miss it! I'm going to do a couple of Glimmer Mist demo nights in March. The first will be Wednesday March 11th from 5 to 7 p.m. at Scrapbook Blvd. I'll show you how to use Glimmer Mist, screens, and stamps all from Tattered Angels. This will be a fun play with it night. I will be doing a demo of Tattered Angels products at Collective Journey's Shamrock crop on March 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. Since I got up at 5:30 this a.m. my brain has gone back to sleep without my body, so if I think of anything else later I will post again.

Class at A to Z Scrapbooking

Saturday Feb 21st I taught the Frosty Memories Glimmer Mist class at A to Z. We had so much fun glimmering, salting, embossing! And the weather was perfect for this book, cool and cloudy! I forgot my camera so sadly I have no pictures from yesterday, but I will be back at A to Z May 9th to teach the Nature Glimmer Mist album. This store has so much good stuff in it, I browsed for quite a while after class, and still didn't get to see everything. Corey, Vivian and Steve - the owners of the store are so much fun! If you haven't been to this store you must go. I got some of the new Best Creations paper there yesterday, and I am hopefully going to use it today! Maybe I will have a layout to share with you later today with it. This store has a ton of events planned for the coming year. Just a few coming up soon: February 28th - A to Z anniversary event, March 27 through 30 - Scrapbook Cruise(I hear these are the most fun ever)! National Scrapbooking Day Back to School event - April 25th. Sign up quick for these, they fill up fast! For more events, and schedule go to

True Love Class

On February 12th I taught the True Love class at Scrapbook Blvd(my home store). We had a ball! This class was using the Prima Down Home Kit (kit designed by the lovely and talented Donna Salazar). We shredded some cardboard, painted, distressed and flowered the night away!

Class at Ever After

On Saturday February 7th I taught the Frosty Memories Glimmer Mist album at Ever After scrapbooks in Vista. Wow, what a fabulous store! You girls at EA are awesome! I got to see some of you at expo, that was fun! Hope to see you all at the Reflections of Love class.

Expo in Costa Mesa

On Friday Feb 13th I headed out to the Scrapbook Expo in Costa Mesa. I worked in the Scrapbook Boulevard booth on Friday and Saturday, and the Tattered Angels booth on Sunday. It was great getting to see so many friends. I love these things! There wasn't alot of time for visiting because it was very busy, but I got to see quite a few people who have attended my classes, scrappy friends, and lots and lots of good scrappy stuff! Every spare moment I had, I was at the Melissa Frances booth, and Scrapyard 329. Liz Hicks did three fabulous classes for Tattered Angels, wow was she a busy girl this weekend! It was really fun, but I am REALLY tired out.

Our family is smaller by one today...

We lost our sweet old girl Chinook on Feb 11th. We have had her for 12 years. We think she was about 16. We didn't get her "new". She was a stray that started following Jordan around. Of course Jordan begged and pleaded to keep her, so we did against David's wishes actually. It's funny, she really became David's dog! She was a daddy's girl. She loved all of us, but David was her favorite. We will miss you pooh bear.

Class at Collective Journey

What a busy weekend it was! Sunday I taught the Reflections of Love Glimmer Mist class at Collective Journey in Redlands. These girls were awesome! And everyone who works there is so helpful and pleasant. This store is GORGEOUS! I took my new apprentice Morgan(my DD) with me and she said she wants to come help me everytime I teach at this store (it could have something to do with the little candy shop in the store). She was a huge help inking all the parts and pieces while we glimmered the day away. This place is definitely eye candy, not to mention all the great stuff there!

Class at A to Z Scrapbooking

We had a great time at the Reflections of Love class at A to Z Scrapbooking in Torrance on Saturday. They are just the most fun! There is a ton of great Scrappy supplies at this store. If you haven't been, you've got to go check it out. Seriously, there is ALOT of great products and events there.
