Summer is HERE!

Are you ready for summer? I sure am. I am so tired of rain and cold! I know, it could be worse than a California winter, but this past winter seemed especially yucky. I have been working really hard on some new summer classes. First up is my "By the Sea" Tattered Angels album. I think your really going to have fun with this one, so grab your flip flops and beach bag and head on over to Collective Journey in Redlands, CA on July 18th, or Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, CA on Aug 8th(you could actually head on down to the beach after the class in Vista, lol). I will be teaching a travel album class this summer also(more to come on that one). Yesterday I taught the Glitter Garden class at Kat Scrap Studio in Pasadena. Wow! Did we ever have fun! Got good and glittery(always the sign of a good day)and learned some new techniques with the Elizabeth Craft glittering system. If you still haven't visited Kat Scrap Studio, you really must, it is simply fabulous! The address is 2455 N. Lake Ave. in Altadena, CA. And they don't just have scrappy stuff, there is all kinds of goodies for creating Altered Art, Jewelry, and fiber arts. So there you have it folks, I'm off to make some jewelry for the Eclipse premier(of course I will be showing it off later) so stay tuned. Have a glimmery day!

I have an Etsy Shop!

Come check out my Etsy shop at! I just listed some new items, and yes, the Edward box IS in there. I have Tag Swags(banners), previous class samples, and I will soon be adding "Class in a Bag" class kits, as well as Team Edward, Team Jacob Tag Swags and album kits. Here is a sneak peek at one of the items in my shop:

I hope you like it! If there is something special you would like that you don't see in my shop leave a comment here or email me and I will make it for you!

Glitter Garden Class

Wow! June is flying by. My Glitter Garden Class is already here! This Saturday I will be teaching this class at Collective Journey in Redlands, Ca, and then I will be teaching it at Kat Scrap Studio in Altadena, CA on June 27th. Please see upcoming classes at right for the phone numbers for the stores. If you haven't seen Elizabeth Craft Glitter and accessories yet, you will! They are hot! Now, I consider myself somewhat of a glitter connoisseur. I have been using glitter since I was old enough to sprinkle it on glue, that is a loooonnnnggg time. This glitter is so fabulous it makes me giddy just thinking about playing with it. It is super duper micro fine. What does that mean? Well, it completely covers the surface it is being applied to, no peekaboo spots showing through, and this is the best part: When used with the Be Creative tape (this stuff is S T I C K Y!) it wont rub off! No glitter debris in your scrapbook sheet protector. No glitter all over the house. My husband especially appreciates that part! This stuff is so fine, you can even watercolor over it. Yep, I said watercolor. Did I mention that in this class we will be learning to watercolor with gel pens? Gel Pens! Who would have thought? I will also show you how to use peel off stickers(outline stickers) with the glitter, and watercolor techniques. You simply have to try it. We will be making a layout and two cards using the fabulous watercolor papers from Donna Salazar Designs. Hope to see you Saturday!

Eclipse Album

Ok, you've been asking for it....HERE IT IS! The Eclipse album:

These are only five of the 28 pages in this album! I will be teaching this class only at Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, CA. It's filling up fast so be sure to sign up, the class is Saturday June 12th starting at 1:00. Please call the store for details at 760-630-2767. I hope you can join me!

Goodbye Forever....

I'm finally retiring the Forever album. It was a good run, and I'll miss it, but I have new things in store...Eclipse is coming out June 30th, so of course I had to make an Eclipse album. Here are a few pictures of the final Forever album classes at Ever After Scrapbooks and Kat Scrap Studio:

Where have I been?

Well, here I am apologizing for being a very,very bad blogger. With the end of the school year coming to a close it has been very hectic with final projects, field trips and the usual crazyness that comes with the end of the year for the kids. I can't believe Morgan will be graduating from Elementary school next week. It seems like just yesterday that I was sending her off to Kindergarten. My youngest daughter Hannah celebrated her 11th Birthday:

We had a nice Memorial weekend at home. The girls had their first swim of summer:

I had a chance to go crop with the Divas:

I'm really looking forward to spending some time with my girls this summer. I hope we can get to the beach at least a few times so I can use up all that beach scrapbook paper that I keep buying, hahaha.
