Thank You Reno

Friday, November 22, 2013

Hello Everyone!
Happy Friday! It's been a busy week for me, gearing up for CHA and preparing for the Holidays, it feels like its GO GO GO! I enjoy being busy. I just got back this week from Scrapbook Paradise in Reno Nevada. I have to say every time I go there I have the most amazing time. The people there are dimly wonderful, so loving, kind, and passionate about scrapbooking. The owner, Laura, is a sweetheart. Truly sweet and kind! Me and Jodie Lee had a chance to once again teach at this store and we had a blast! Driving up to Reno is about 8 hours from Los Angeles. Which is quite a ride. However it is very scenic, beautiful forests and lakes. I love doing the drive, you don't even feel it. Here is a little re-cap of our trip down to Reno:

It was windy and chilly!

Mono Lake :)

I wanted this shabby bench in my home. :(

Packing kits!

Yep, that was Reno in a nutshell. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It's so peaceful there and I love, love the people. So welcoming and sweet. Thanks Laura for having us in your store once more and I cannot wait until next year! I am excited to see what 2014 will bring!!

Happy Thursday Friends!
I gotta say I love rainy days! It is raining today in Los Angeles! Woohooo! So what a perfect day to scrapbook and craft right? Well today I wanted to share a new layout I made exclusively for The Scrapbook Diaries! Have you had any time where the papers you own are just not the right ones? Well I had a situation quite like that, so I decided to create my own background using different mediums and sprays. Check it out:

This layout is filled with techniques and amazing embellishments! Would you like to try it yourself? Head on to The Scrapbook Diaries to get your own kit! Click HERE. I had so much fun with this layout, I hope you get to try it as well.

I hope you have a wonderful scrapping day!

Sharing Some More Christmas Cheer

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Hello Everyone!
Happy Saturday! I am sitting here in Reno Nevada looking out a beautiful window getting ready to teach two fabulous classes today at Scrapbook Paradise. I feel so lucky to be able to travel to different places and teach and meet great people. Last night I taught my Magical Fairy Banner, it was great fun. I want to share another class I will be teaching in December at Custom Impressions. I love Christmas, and Prima released a wonderful Holiday Line, Holiday Jubilee that completely sold out in days! I have to say, I was a bit lucky to get some for myself! I made some lovely Holiday Tags and I would like to share them with you!

Lovely huh? Not my typical Christmas colors, I am more into the gold and white Christmas, but I think it works. Lots of lovely fussy cut pieces there, and lovely layering. I hope you can come if you are in the area. This will be my last class before Art-Venture! I am very excited!! Will YOU be attending?

Have A Great Weekend!
