Seaside Frame

Hi all, today is my day for the Tattered Angels educator blog hop. We are hopping all month so please check out the other educators blogs, I have them all listed to the left here on my blog. I couldn't stop at just one project though so I posted this one on here. Many of you know how I love to recycle cool product packaging, so I just had to make a frame with the new Seaside Glimmer Chips box. These new products are so cool! So heres what I did:
I used the Graphic 45 Boardwalk papers to cover the words on the empty chip box, painted the back of the seashell glimmer glass with peach bellini glimmer glam, and cut images from the patterned paper and inserted behind the glimmer glass film strip. I added a photo to the inside of the box, put a ribbon for hanging at the top, and that's it! Super easy, and so much fun! Please check out the Tattered Angels educator blog here for my monthly project. I got to play with glam, glaze and chalkboard glimmer mist, yum!
Here are some other projects I made using the Tattered Angels Seaside collection with the Graphic 45 Boardwalk paper and the Tattered Angels Tailored tags. Enjoy!

Wild and Wonderful Scrappy Weekend

Well, I think I've finally recovered from my weekend. National Scrapbook day was Saturday May 1st, but us scrappers are not satisfied with just one day, so it has blossomed into National Scrapbook Weekend, and even National Scrapbook Month! There were so many great events going on that I couldn't choose just one, so my weekend went something like this: Friday April 30th at Del Mar, CA for Scrapbook Expo. I demonstrated Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in the Scrapbooks and Stickers booth. Even Mr. Pickle (Lance from Rusty Pickle)came out to play with the Glimmer Mist. For some strange reason I didn't get a photo of what he made, but he sprayed those super cool Rusty Pickle chipboard letters with GM to make a banner for his booth and a class kit sample. Stunning! Even my class heckler showed up,lol. You may remember him from a previous blog post of the Forever album class at Ever After. Here are some pics of the peeps at the show getting their glimmer on.

After Expo I headed out to Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, my home away from home for some more Tattered Angels make and take action. We played with the new Seaside collection and the Tailored Tags.

The lovely and oh so talented Margie Romney Aslett was there from Utah hosting the NSD crop and teaching some fantabulous classes over the weekend with her Girls Paperie line(holy cow is that an awesome line of goodies). OMG she made me laugh so hard, this girl is a hoot! Here she is getting her glimmer on.

Saturday: Back to Expo in Del Mar for more Glimmery fun. I'd like to thank the girls at Scrapbooks N' Stickers, they are awesome! Here they are:

The lovely Miss Sheila from Scrapbook Royalty came by to visit too.

And this little cutie patootie comes to do a make and take with me at every expo. She LOVES her Glimmer Mist!

Ok, now off to Hesperia for the Diva crop. These are my girls, my BFF's, my best betties, and THE DIVA herself Aprile really knows how to throw a crop let me tell you! So here are the girls doing their make and takes:

Sunday: Grand opening celebration at Kat Scrap Studio in Altadena, CA
More Tattered Angels make and takes, and lots of fun at this super cool store. I love this place! It is a brand spankin' new store in Altadena(Pasadena) and it is so stinkin' cute! The owner Karen Myers, and her staff are awesome. So many delicious scrappy products, and classes from Scrapbooking to Jewelry making, Mixed media, Knitting and Crochet. You must go check it out! Check my class schedule, I'm doing some fun classes there in the future. Just look at this place (my pictures aren't too good, but you get the idea.

And there you have it, my wild wonderful scrappy weekend! I must say, tired as I was at the end of it all, I came home feeling energized, and I scrapped a little. I think I got some serious creative mojo from being around all these wonderful people all weekend. Scrapbookers truly are an extraordinary group. I love hearing everyones personal stories, all of which have made them stronger in one way or another.
