2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

News times 2!


My Whimsy Shapeology Die Candy here till 7-16

*********************
Yowsers It's Hot!  A mere 98 degrees today!  We hit 102 on the 4th so I guess I should be glad!  lol  On a more creative topic, I have hit 450 followers!  I'm so pleased to be reaching so many lovely people and hope to continue to reach even more of you!   We all like a treat and after the 16th of July when I draw a winner for the above candy, I will have a Saturated Canary surprise for you to thank all of you for helping to spread the love of our craft and the shaped EZ templates too! 

*************************************

Time to tell you all, finally!  I was chosen as a featured artists at the Scrapbook News and Review magazine!   Published at the first of July!  I couldn't be more blessed and excited to share my Shape EZ template work in this arena!  Yep, yours truly!  Pinch!


If you subscribe, My article is titled "Outside the box" (box meaning the square card).  The Shape EZ cut templates available exclusively at the Whimsy Stamps Store were profoundly showcased and a tutorial on my altering of my sons daily planner pages into the Kenny K bookmark I recently created.  There are some fabulous tutorials from other featured artists too like Suzanne Dean's wonderful copic coloring.  Thank you for the opportunity SNR!

******************************************

Big news number 2!  



My colleague and friend Angie Hunt, owner of the Little Darlings Rubber Stamps is going to give away 3 of the new Saturated Canary rubber images when her new Facebook page has collected 500 followers and she's almost there!  If you stop in and like the page, you're in the draw!  Don't you just love the SC images by Krista Smith?  The rubber is going to be available in the U.S. for the first time through the Little Darlings store after the CHA in July!  Can't wait to see the rubber only images!    So get over there and join in on the fun!  Good luck all!

*********************************

I'm going to share another of my "practice" cards today from the card class I take monthly with Angie Hunt or Scrapgirl as you may know her.  Hi Angie!   The image is "Fresh Picked Flowers" from the Little Darlings store.  My teacher and friend Angie was showing us how to create a plump looking cheek and shallow around the eyes for depth.  Also, the pebble look on the pathway and shading of stamped clouds.  Both were completely new to me and just my opinion, the cheek is a little tricky but really looks lovely when it's right.  For the information on the card, I'm going to link you to Angie's card here.   Thanks Angie, really beautiful design again!

I want to clarify that this card design, paper choices, die cuts, flowers and even the marker color choices are supplied completely by Angie for the cost of the class and the only portion of this creation that I will ever take credit for is the coloring of these projects.  So I've learned the technique but I admit, I really have to practice before I master it! tehe

The pathway/cloud stamp is a separate image

Yep, she even coordinates the inside of the card!

Ok, so here are the cheeks!  A little blotchy and lower down past the lips, but I tried! 
 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
