Kids Canvas Painting

I loved taking my kids to local painting classes but the company we used is no longer  offering these.  I thought I'd fill a gap and start to offer these periodically out of my home.

Here's today's class- excited to see what the attendees think of it!

I found the idea on pinterest and it went together pretty quick.  I used some gold glitter paint around the edges which makes it really pop out in person.  I used the CTMH base and bling jingle bells on the elves shoe.

Mystery Boxes

Oh my goodness!

Trying to clean my scrap space and it's near impossible.  I'm bursting at the seams!

It's time to unload some of my overstock!

I've got 6 boxes up for grabs-  Each with a retail value of $35 or more.

I'm selling each for only $15 INCLUDING shipping in the U.S  These packages are primarily embellishments, stickers and stamps.

If you decide to purchase 2 boxes I'll guarantee that you won't receive ANY duplicates!  I can't make that promise if you buy more than 2 boxes.

Thanks for helping me unload my stash!!  My paypal button will allow 6 boxes to be sold... so if it lets you purchase then there's still some left!

Simply FUNdamentals Blog Hop

This month we are sharing some GREAT ideas with the Fundamentals product line.

If you're coming from Wendy's blog- WELCOME.  If you are just joining the hop here at my blog... no problem- you can start here and circle around.

So what is the "fundamentals" line?  Simply put, it's a line of coordinating products in our CTMH color schemes.  Papers are glossy embossed on one side and flat patterned (not glossy embossed but same pattern) on the back.  there are sticker sheets with 4 sheets of word, alphabet and cool images, plus assortment packs with glitter shapes, wood shapes, bows and photo clips.  So much fun with this line!

I used the fundamentals line to create layouts for my retreat guests in October.  Here is one of the layouts I created:

This layout was a blast to create - I've got two more from the class I'll be posting this weekend!

Saddle Cardstock
Pomegranate cardstock
Fundamentals Enchantment paper pack
Fundamentals Enchantment sticker pack
Gold Fundamentals Assortment

Here are a few close ups

Now head on over to Lisa's blog to see what she's come up with!
If you get lost along the way... this link should have the entire hop listed to help you out.

November kit of the month and December pre-order


Today I'm happy to share the November kit of the Month card set that ships this week.  I was just finalizing my direction guide and thought I'd share the photos I took of each card.  Consider this your "sneek Peek".

If you're not familiar with my Kit of the Month it works like this:  you pre-order next month's kit by the 15th of each month.  You choose the pre-stamped version for $15 or the "with stamps" for $25.

I don't show the cards early, it's kind of a surprise.  Your kit always includes cool supplies and a full pack or two of product so you have some leftover.   In the past I've included things like chalk markers, washi tape, gems etc.

This month's kit uses this fun stamp set- those of you that purchased it will LOVE these stamps- they are so fun and very easy to color:
Here are the 4 cards you'll make with this month's kit:

The full packs included in this kit:
Sparkle and Shine assortment:
and Woodgrain Washi tape
Isn't that super fun?
Would you like to try my monthly kit by mail?
YOu can PRE-ORDER the December kit NOW through November 15 and it will ship the first full week of December.
Here is the stamp set the cards will be designed from:
you can pre-order this kit here:  Payments received November 16 or later will go towards the JANUARY KIT.
