Lots of Fun!

From Adriel:

Today we did a free library class at the Sunset library. We did a mother/daughter class, which was fun because, HEY, we're a mom and daughter team! So that was somewhat ironic.

All the cards turned out wonderful and I enjoyed watching the moms and daughters enjoy themselves. I love it when people who don't think they can do anything crafty make one of the cards and are amazed that they did it! I love the simplicity of stamping and card making... anyone can do it!

Here's a picture of one the cards we made today. You can view more pictures on the slideshow on the side.

Note: The colors in this photo are TERRIBLE! It looks like old olive, but it's really close to cocoa! Hard to believe, I know, but it's true. I'll have to get another photo in here... and SOON!

One More Week!

From Adriel:

You still have one more week to register for our project class on July 5! The project we will be featuring is this cute, mini accordion album.

It is so versatile and can be used for any theme or event. This would make a great gift for someone, because pictures can be added later. We will be doing a friends OR family mini accordion album. It unfolds into this wonderful memory album.

You don't want to miss out on this adorable album! Register today by contacting us:

Class info:

Where: At Heidi's house in Chandler (directions given after registration)

When: July 5, 1pm-3pm (one week away!)

Cost: $10 (this includes supplies and everything cut out and ready to go. Also, you will be given step-by-step instructions to take home with you so you make this project again on your own!)

We hope to see you there!

From Heidi

This is my first attempt at blogging. Adriel set this blog site up for us and I think she did a great job! So I've taken a picture of a bookmark we've been demo'ing this month at out library workshops and I'm going to see if I'll be able to place this post and the picture onto our blog site. We have been busy this month. We've been doing workshops at all the branches of our public library with attendance varying from 1 to 20. We have 2 workshops left, one today and the last one this coming Monday. They've been a lot of fun. I think the best part has been meeting so many wonderful people. I'll let you know how the last 2 workshops go.

I don't know if you noticed that I made a card to put the bookmark in. Adriel came up with this idea last night... I thought it was a fun idea. It's a nice way to give a little gift with a card to a teacher or a friend.

Blog is up and running!

From Adriel:

Our blog is up and running, as you can see. It was so easy to do, it made me ask myself why I haven't done this sooner! I am now an official "blogger"! We're still new at this, so give us time to get in the groove of blogging. This may even inspire you to create your own blog! (It is SO easy to do!) Or, you may be ahead of us and have a blog already. Whatever the case may be, let us know your blog site so we can connect with you in this form as well! This will be fun!

Before I sign out, I want to share a project with you that Heidi did. It is a 6x6 scrapbook page and a card, both made with the same Simply Scrappin' kit, Rose Cottage. These kits are so great, because all the colors coordinate, you get printed double-sided paper AND solid textured cardstock, along with 6 sheets of self-adhesive die-cuts! Everything is ready to be assembled and if you have a limited amount of "creative time", this is the perfect way to do scrapping or even card-making, as you can see in this photo. The kits make great cards, too! Also, you may have noticed that she used a similar layout for card and scrap page, with great results both ways! Good job, Mom!
