Lawn Fawn: Mini-Album

Hello hello! It's the end of the school year. That means, it's time for teachers' gifts! Two words that kind of scare me. I'm usually a "cash and card" person. But since I'm room parent this year, I had to step up my present giving!

Enter this mini-album I made using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Party Banners. Super duper easy! For step-by-step instructions, please visit the Lawn Fawn's blog. Thank for dropping by!

Guest Designer: Waffle Flower

I'm so excited to share these projects! Waffle Flower is a new company that  makes high quality polymer stamps. Love seeing a scrapbooking/stamping company find success. Yay for our industry! Plus the owner Nina is a really nice person! Win-win.

I got to play with the super popular Bowtiful and the brand new Bowtiful Additions. There are a ton of words in both sets to create cards for just about everyone.

The second I saw the bowties, I knew I'd be using them for this photo of my son wearing his tux. He was in his ringbearer stage a couple of years ago. Look at that faux smile — total cheese ball, right?

I stamped the solid bowtie from the Additions in three colors. On top, I stamped the stitched version (original stamp set) with a white ink. Then used the space between the "stitches" to punch holes for my sewing.

I did some hand-stitching, and finished off the layout with a sprinkling of the star stamp. Love that stamp!

For the card, I used the frame from the Additions set, and stamped a mod pattern using various ink colors. Finished the card off with the Hello from the original set. Clean and easy!

Thanks for coming by! Don't forget to stop by the Waffle Flower blog for lots of ideas and more info on their stamps.

The Phone Photography Class. Self-paced!

Uh, yeah. Blog. I have one.

Sorry about that big break. I'm getting ready to travel to Asia with my three kids, and getting that organized has taken most of my free time. That coupled with end of school year stuff. Why are so many things scheduled towards the end? Why am I such a procrastinator? Sigh.

Onto more fun stuff. You might remember that last summer, I was one of the teachers at Big Picture Classes' The Phone Photography class. It was such a fun project. But it was live, and there was an assigment every day. Which can get kind of crazy when all you want to do is chill.

This time, the class is self-paced! Which means more time to play and no stress. Woohoo to that!

What's this class all about? 31 challenges from 31 instructors, and 60 app reviews. We tell you what apps are worth your money, which are not. There are also downloadable handouts, tips, etc. And as with all Big Picture classes, you can get access to your class forever. Nice!

To find out more and sign up, click here. To follow my adventures in Asia, follow me on Instagram.

Be back soon with a few projects that I'm really excited to share! See you then!
