Yes, this card is one of the projects for August but wait til you see the inside--it's a pop-up that I don't think any of you have ever done before and it's soooo easy!




Do you want to see the projects for July’s class?


It’s a Quilt patch card, created with the Big Shot!

And a shutter card that looks hard but is sooooo easy!  Uses our new Asian Artistry set.

Heartfelt Thanks—Scrappin’ Your Faith


I had a scrapbook party for a friend today and this is the page we did.  I’ve recently been inspired to really share my faith and values in my scrap booking so that my kids and some day, grand kids will be reminded of how much I loved the Lord.

This uses one of my favorite sets that is going to retire—---
