A Closer Look at Mixed Media Serendipity Notebook & Cards

On Saturday I had the fun of teaching my Mixed Media Serendipity Notebook & Card Class at Betty's :) My mom, dad & sister are here visiting from BC and Mom joined in the fun at the class! The group had a great time with paint and ink and texture and shine... and turned out some beautiful projects!  I'll be scheduling this one again sometime, so if you missed it be sure to let either me or the girls at Betty's know & we'll make sure you can make it next time!
Here's a closer look at the three cards I made using the 'serendipity' pieces of our cardstock and the adorable Scribbly bird stamps by Dina Wakeley:

I also demonstrated an alternate color scheme with shades of red, here's how they came out:

Here's the cards my mom made in class:
 and here's what happened when I was attempting to photograph them... LOL  Needless to say, I didn't get close ups of the cards, since it was officially play time according to my kitten!
I wanted to get these pictures posted sooner so the ladies who were at the class could get a closer look to finish up their cards, but we've been busy with family time and Thanksgiving celebrations here :)  It's been so fabulous having them here with me, I'm sure going to miss them when they leave this week... but hopefully it won't be too terribly long before I can head north to visit them as well!

I'm a Prima Ambassador!

I'm excited to finally get to share with y'all that I am one of the newest Prima Ambassadors!  It's a thrill to be a part of this group of creative ladies who will be doing demos for Prima in Hobby Lobby stores as well as a some local stores! 

I'm anxiously awaiting my intro box of goodies so I can set out and offer FREE make & take projects in stores close to home here in North Carolina!  As soon as I have my demos scheduled, I'll share the info here on the blog!

I know things have been quiet on the blog, and life is about to get a whole lot busier for me soon... but creative ideas are flowing and I have my MOM here visiting me (as well as my Dad and sister!) and we have some plans for creative play which I look forward to sharing with you :)  We picked up a few goodies today when we stopped by Betty's to shop & have tea with Dyan Reaveley and are in love with the new Coffee Break collection by Prima... so cute!)
