The blog theme is missing summer and since it didn't even get into the 60s today, I was REALLY missing summer! So, I created this wall hanging using a picture from last summer. It was really easy to create and the PSA border circle stamps are just perfect for the circles on Urban Lily's Hyperactive paper! I will be creating this wall hanging in my next Urban Swank on-line class for free! Click here for details and to RSVP.

Here's a close up of the butterfly so you can see the crackle on the butterfly. Actually, I created this in my last class and it was just perfect for this wall hanging! I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and then crackled it using Helmar's Crackle Medium. I will be creating another in class on Wednesday so you can see how easy it is to create something so beautiful! :)

Lime Green and with a BUG!

I'm trying out for a DT member for the Cricut 360 blog and thought I would share what I made :) I needed to use lime green and include a bug - lol... oh, and of course, use my cricut!

My goodness, it's been one heck of a week... well, last week, that is! Moday was rehersal for Caytlynn and Cassidy's bridging and that took place on Wednesday. Here are my 2 girlies :)

Thursday was Cullen and Cali's big show :) Here they are - SO cute!

And with Brayden, Cullen's best buddy!

Cassidy's rehersal was Friday and her recital was on Saturday :) She did such a great job and I'm so proud! She knew the dance well and smiled the entire time!!

The recital was followed by Cassidy and Cullen's b-day party celebration which was followed by a bon fire and a night to stay up late... the kids were thrilled to stay up late!!!

And it was with Uncle Chad!!!!

Sunday was a recovery day and then Monday we busted out the slide cause it was so hot! The kids had a BLAST!!!

It was a great week, but I'm glad things are back to normal :)

Zip A Dee YEAH! I'm ecstatic about the weather being a bit warmer! I'm excited for summer to start and CHA and all that fun stuff!!!

I'll be doing my scrapbooking classes every Sunday this month with the exception of that last Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Here's a flower that I created in a tutorial I did on Saturday night in honor of National Scrapbook Day! I started out using one of the ugliest ribbons, can you even believe it?? lol! I don't even know where I acquired the ribbon from since it's been in my stash for years! I could not have made this without my 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, it's absolutely wonderful when using it on projects that need fast dry time! After it was almost all done, I sprayed it with Helmar's V2 Vellum adhesive, let it set for 5 minutes and sprinkled Clearsnap glittler on it - Voila!!! You can see the UStream video of it here: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. And here is the finished flower :)

Happy Scrappin!!!

Catching up!

So, it's been one crazy ride since CHA! And that was already a month ago! So, let's back up to CHA... I had an absolute BLAST!!! I met so many awesome people! I did get sick, I believe it was food poisoning. It was my full first and even second day there. The upside to it was that I did not have to spend a small fortune on food - lol!!. So here's the first day, I spent some time at the Helmar Booth and there is Shelly and Tracy :)

 This was after that first day, Michelle and I got the party started as we were freshening up in the bathroom for the Provo Craft Birthday Bash.
 The Provo Craft Birthday Bash was awesome! They had the So You Think You Can Dance Dancers preform - OFF THE HOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then we even got to meet them and take pics with them!

I have more pics, but I can't figure out how to get them from my BB to my hard drive - grrrr! It was a great couple days besides the sickies!

New to the store... Spring Delight Kit! I created these 2 candles with it last night along with my Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive!!

 And here's the UStream videos if you'd like to see how I made them:

Part 2:

Part 3:

I'll be doing another show next Sunday on Ustream... "like" Scrap-Tastic on fb to receive the latest updates!
Happy Crafting!

Family Friday post and V-Day Cards

My kids could not wait to open up all of their crafty goodness from Christmas and when they did, it was like a craft store threw up in my foyer.... and dining room... and kitchen! I am still sweeping up glitter from last weekend! Here's the disaster area:

Just a few of their projects!!!

This is Caytlynn's favorite! She strung glue to make it look like cobwebs and then sprinkled glitter on it. She is so creative and only 8! The detail that she put into this is just AMAZING!!!

If you missed my show on Monday with Helmar, you can view it here. And you will find the measurements here. This first one is my origional card

This is one that I just threw together to show how to mask using the V2 Vellum Adhesive

Detail... you can click on it to make it even larger to see how precise it is!

The card I created in class

Close up of the glittered heart!!

My Mixology project for the week!!! Visit the Mixology Blog to find directions on how to make your own scull shirt!

I will be teaching Zumba tomorrow at noon and then I have a Zumbathon tomorrow night so I am starting off my weekend with a bang!!! Oh my, and then Zumba at 9:30 Saturday morning!!!
Have a super fantabulous weekend!

Rollin Good Times!

Here's another LO designed from this Scrapbook Challenges Sketch :)

Again, I used products from the Romantica Kit from! Actually everything besides the Helmar adhesives, ink and Glimmer Mist are in the kit! So, if you saw my last LO I did with this kit (2 posts down) you can see how versatile this kit is!!! I created this LO in an on-line class that you can view here on UStream.

Here you can see the dimension with using the Liquid Scrap Dots.

And my pretty flowers :) :) :) I love how they turned out!

Don't forget that has Helmar Adhesives at 10% off EVERYDAY!!!

I am doing another class tonight on Scrap-Tastic's UStream channel at 8:30 CST! I hope you can join me :)

Have a wonderful day and happy creating!!!
