Butterfly Magnets

I made these adorable butterfly magnets for my clubbers that started this past April. I used my Big Shot, Sticky Pages, Fine Glitter, and some Designer Paper to transform ordinary clothes pins into fun and functional magnets. I used Tombow Multi-Adhesive to adhere the designer paper to the clothes pin and added some strip magnet to the back.

Teacher Gifts

Kyle gave these plants to his preschool teachers. I bought the pots from IKEA (my favorite store!) for @$2 each. I tied some ribbon around the pots and secured them with mini glue dots. I made a tag using the Curly Label punch. The "thank you" stamp is from Wow Flowers and added a Rhinestone brad to the center of the "o". Quick, easy, and cheap!

Simply Scrappin' Kit Classes

I just had my latest Simply Scrappin' Kit Class this past week. The picture above shows just one of the layouts we made using the Sunshine Garden kit.

At these classes, you receive a full Simply Scrappin' kit and make 4 two-page layouts. You keep all the extra paper and die cuts that we don't use. At each class, you receive the directions to make the pages as well as Scrap Maps of the layouts to use for later inspiration.

My next Simply Scrappin' Kit uses the Sweet Nothings kit.

Date: Monday, June 22 at 6:30 PM
RSVP & Payment due: June 8
Cost: $30

Here is one of the layouts we will make using this beautiful kit:

I'll Be Back!

Yes, it's been way too long since I've blogged. My main pc started to crash and that is where I upload the pictures from my camera. I have been trying to get the program I need to upload pictures to my laptop, but it's more complicated than I would have thought. Anyway, I promise to work on some things soon. I do have some projects ready to show you, but without the pictures, I'll have to wait. And well, truthfully, I cannot even find my camera right now! I'm pretty sure Kent did something with it, but he insists that he hasn't touched it.

So, here are some things coming up:

June 1: Last Chance list released (used to be called "Retiring" list). This year this list will also include the retiring accessories! I will post the list here as soon as I can access it.

June 30: Last Day to order from the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog and the Occasions Mini catalog

July 1: Noon--MT---can begin ordering from the new catalog--this one will last a year!

Happy Memorial Day!
