Altered Escape October - Margie Romney-Aslett

I am so excited to share my Altered Escape October class project with everyone!

Each year, Bazzill puts on an amazing event called Creative Escape. They bring in the top scrapbooking names and have each of them teach a class using their own product lines.

Margie Romney-Aslett used her line, The Girls' Paperie, as well as Tim Holtz product and beads from Scarlet Lime Bead Art to create an amazing collage charm necklace!

Scrapp'n Savvy has brought in the exact kits that Margie used to teach her class at Creative Escape, and I am so excited to be teaching the techniques used to make the necklace on October 23rd at 6pm.

The retail value of the product you'll receive is over $65, and get this...the class is only $45!!

You'll actually get enough product to make 2 necklaces easily. The value is un believable!

Because this class uses Margie's kits from Creative Escape, spots are limited, so if you're interested, sign up soon!

To sign up, contact me or Scrapp'n Savvy!

Hello - A Shabby Chic Card

I made this card today for a special person, and I LOVE how it turned out! I had extra product from the Margie Romney Creative Escape Necklace class kit, so I decided to incorporate some of it into the card. The chipboard letters were the perfect size for this card :)

The card base is 4.25"x5.5" and opens off center from the front. I used the new Prismatics line from Bazzill, and printed paper from the October Afternoon Fly a Kite line.

For the ruffle trim, I used Tim Holtz's Love Is stamp and Timber Brown Stazon Ink on white tissue paper and then adhered it to the bottom of the card a little at a time in order to create the ruffle.

After adding a few stamps here and there on the printed paper, Stickling a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket, and distressing a top note cut from Tim Holtz's Styled Labels Alterations Die...this card was D-O-N-E!

Scrapp'n Savvy Sampler - New Location!

The Scrapp'n Savvy Sampler was a hit! 

Friday and Saturday, crafters were introduced to Scrapp'n Savvy's awesome new location and at least 5 of the teachers, and the larger store with tons of new product lines! They paid only $5 to make a Halloween mini book using the new We R Memory Keepers Heebie Jeebies line. Each instructor designed one of the pages of the book, and I designed the cover (using my favorite new Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge Distress Ink). Karrie was kind enough to allow the instructors to make a mini book too, and I love how great it turned out! I'm giving mine to my sister to fill with photos :)

If you live in the Greater Houston area, I have great news for you! There is a new scrapbooking store in town, and it is worth checking out! While it is only in phase one, construction will continue for the next few months, and will transform Scrapp'n Savvy into the newest and best scrapbooking retreat location in town! Scrapp'n Savvy will be taking reservations for retreats starting in January, so contact them today to book your get-away!

Look for a post about my upcoming Altered Escape classes soon!

Quick Update!

Hello hello!

I wanted to swing by with a quick update. Life has taken me on an unexpected path, and I couldn't be happier, however, life has also left me with limited crafting time and a terrible internet connection :)

My classes at Scrapp'n Savvy have gone really well! I had two students sign up to make my bird house, and they left happy, and the necklaces that the ladies made in my August class were beautiful! Scrapp'n Savvy will be opening the doors of their permanent location soon...very exciting! I have a lot of class planning to do for the upcoming months, so that means I'll more than likely have some more creations to share with all of you :)

In other news (hehe), Club Ruby has launched, and it is IMPRESSIVE! I am one of the Master Designers for Club Ruby and can attest to the awesomeness that is Club Ruby :) The website is in Beta right now, with a select few members, but when the full launch occurs, I urge you to join!

Again, I apologize for my absence recently, but rest assured...I'll be back soon with more delightfully distressed creations!
