Block Party!

It's been a really long time since I posted anything here.  Long story short, my computer died and posting images has been more challenging.  In the next weeks I will be sharing with you some of the terrific projects we have been making in my classes and clubs.


This great home decor project will be the focus of my Block Party! class on September 22nd.  The blocks will be all prepped and ready for you to attach the banners you make.  These banners are removable, so you can change them for different seasons.  This will make great home decor whether you keep it for yourself or give as a gift.  Guests may choose a time slot of 2:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. for the class.

This set features Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, and Large Letters Framelits.

If you are in the O'Fallon area and would like to join us, please contact me for more details.  Registration closes September 8th.

Eastern Palace Mini Explosion Box




Lovely little treat boxes were made for my May class attendees with the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP.  I used the coordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlit Dies to make the inside foil layer and the flower on the lid.  Detail accents on the lid are from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  Thanks to Birgit Seidler for her inspiration and directions for creating this sweet little box!

Window Box Thinlit Luminaries


These lovely luminaries were made with the Window Box Thinlits in the Occasions Catalog.  I used a bit of Vellum glued to the inside of each side to give it a soft, frosted glow.  Inside each box a battery operated tealight votive shimmers.  I cut the pattern out of every side except the one I used for the bottom.  This project was inspired by Karin Muller and you can see her original project HERE.  You can see she used pastels and that, too, is a beautiful look!  Thanks for the inspiration, Karin!

I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits to add a Gold Foil dragonfly to the top of each box.  Now they are beautiful home decor!

Can you spot the two new In Colors featured in these boxes?  Hint:  Their names are Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide.  These In Colors will be in the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I can't wait!

Christmas Cards

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to share with you all the incredible Christmas cards that were made in my classes this fall.  There were about 20 cards plus gift boxes, tags and gift card holders.  I simply couldn't balance my time well enough to get the photographs taken and posted.  My goal for the new year is to be better at balancing my time.  I will do my best to share more projects with you in 2017.
