New Samples For Dreamweaver

I just kept putting layers in on this fall card. I love using paste and the many ways it can be used. Also...Prima now has some cool fall leaves! Add some touches on leafing and there ya go!
Pears are a passion of mine. Love them and love to use them in different ways. I also have glitter which makes me happy!

I used 3 different peacock stencils to make this card and chalk and transparent paste and top it all off with another great Prima flower.

Simple embossing paste and layers. Top it all off with some fun Jolee's snowflakes!

These are a few of the samples I just completed to send to Miss Lynell at Dreamweaver. Let me know what you think????

Jewelry Box

This is a box I just completed and will be on sale at a great shop in Eureka Springs, Arkansas called Lady Eureka! I will have a couple of other jewelry boxes there after this Friday along with some of my necklace creations. I have had such a great time using different products! The great paper on this got at Scrapbook Generation! They are so sweet there to just let you shop and are always helpful. I must say, I have been in many stores and I like this one a lot!

I am now getting in gear to get my next round of design team items sent to Dreamweaver and finish the samples for classes I am teaching in Topeka, KS, October 1st & 2nd. It is not too late to get in on this great crop. You can just point and click on the Memory Expo icon to the right for more information!

Happy Creating!

Altered Clipboard

I had a great time with a couple of the pre teens today. We made altered clipboards. The girls did a great job and I did not have my camera with me so will show you mine. I took the pictures to quickly and my embossing paste was not yet dry. I think you can get the idea. I just layered and added and glittered and just had fun!
Love the brad flower from My Minds Eye...I hit the edges with a little chalk ink!

The flowers started out white and I used glimmer mist to tint them. I wadded them up and heated them to dry in the microwave. I also hit the edges with a little ink and finished them off with more brads!

I added a little bit of mica to my pearl embossing paste by Dremweaver! I love this pear stencil...one of my all time favs!

Happy creating! Kristi
