we keep on waiting

i have saturday's (6/27/09) class images!!!! this is going to be the final class taught by our beloved distress mistress :( she is going to teach you how to create this lovely piece of home decor using stretched canvas, paint and pieces of phone book.

these samples show colors that go with the teachers home, but you get to choose your own color scheme!

there are stamps...


and so many different goodies! we still have room in this class, so if you feel crafty or you need a night out, sign up! if you feel like a mommy and me class, let us know in advance and we can set it up for the two of you! this class is $30 and starts at 6:30pm

this i promise you

this is going to be on pic heavy post! buckle your seat belts folks!

i took the time to redo our ribbon wall. it looks sooooo much nicer now! did i mention i love ribbon?

here is the cake/pie box die i was telling you about.

and the envelope die and card die i loooove so much! i bought it yesterday, but havent had time to play with it yet...i have an idea of what i wanna do with it, so we shall see what i come up with!

the die on the left is a mini accordion album die. the die on the right is a scalloped purse box die.

here is one of the page of the month kits from basic grey, the july kit. we havent put our sample together yet, so stay tuned for that!
a closer look of the layout:
we have my favorite magazine in stock! scrapbook trends and card trends! i love that each book is filled with lots of ideas and they always have great tips for each design!

ok some how these pics ended up sideways, but these are the two newest lines from basic grey! 6x6 designer paper pads! i love to use them for my mini albums and they are also perfect for cards because they take the gorgeous designs of basic grey and shrink them down to the perfect size!
the greeting card kit from basic grey! i love that they came out with these! they have all the ingredients in this great kit, all you do is bring the adhesive and ink! our july card class features the lime rickey card kit
of course we have embellishments!
rubons and chipboard stickers!
more rubons!
the new 3d stickers, pops!
buttons! you know how i love buttons!!!

here is one of the beautiful papers from the junebug line. junebug is a double sided collection!
and this one is from the lemonade collection. i would love for this line to be double sided, but alas it is not :( still pretty though!
lots of new goodies!

and i have more images from the fathers day class!
such busy little worker bees!
classes are so much fun! they are great for a girls night or to get new ideas or just because! we can also do custom classes, tell us what you wanna learn and when you wanna learn it!
i have to get going, but it was so great to see you! we have a new radio commercial on air, so tune to 102.7 da bomb or 93.1 the zone! see you later!

we just got in a BUNCH of new stuff! basic grey has come out with 2 new lines: june bug and lemonade! we got all of the papers for both lines (each one is deeply fabulous) and a few embellishments for both. we also got the card kit for lemonade, i am soooooooo loving the BG card kits! check out www.basicgrey.com for images.

basic grey page of the month!!!! we are currently putting together our kits for those, stay tuned for images of the sample layout! july features "june bug" papers and includes chipboard stickers, rubons and buttons! august features lemonade papers and includes brads, rubons, and basic grey's new bling it rhinestones! if classes arent your thing, you can still pick up one of these puppies because they are filled with all kinds of goodies!

we also got in a wonderful shipment of sizzix dies! 5 new extra long dies; a scalloped envelope, a scalloped card (fits in the envelope), an accordian mini album, a scalloped purse box, and a cake box! or a pie box....depending on the celebration ;) i myself loved the envelope and card so much that i grabbed one of each :) we also got a cherry blossom branch strip die and a few sizzlits sets.

now you know all that stuff i just told you about? well i gotta go and merch it so you can see it when you stop by today! see you later!

if i lay here

good afternoon starshine! the earth says hello!!! today is wednesday and it is a lovely day! its been quite windy and the sun is shining! how are you doing? good i hope...

so i bought half the paint for my room. since my room is currently a really dark blue, i bought primer and had it tinted and i bought the paint for the ceiling. apparently you are supposed to paint the ceiling first, so guess what i'm going to be doing on my day off tomorrow!!! yup...im gonna paint :)
in other news, i just wanted to give you guys a reminder about our sticker sale! we only have a couple days left, it ends this friday!
and i finally uploaded the photos from last friday's class!!! it was a mommy and me class where we made a gift for dad for daddy day!
i love working with acrylic paint. its so dirty and wonderful :)
you can just see the concentration on their faces!
and mom is having such fun!
and look, im lurking in the background! i have no idea who i was talking to...looks important though right?
ok, here is were the spoiler starts! make daddy look away now!!!
its a picture frame where you can hang your keys!!
wasnt this fun?
take a peek at our most recent creations!
everytime i turn on our cricut, i discover a new little trick it can do! we have about 10 cartridges and they each do some really neat stuff. this is from the "stretch your imagination" cartridge:
i know its nothing ultra fancy with goobers coming out, but hey i like it! this card was cut in two pieces; the turtle and card base are one and the blue wave frame is the other. i still wanna put more into this card, but i'm gonna figure that out later!
i ended up making a couple of the cards that were in our card class, and this card was the first time i had ever used the kraft colored cardstock! at first i didnt really get the big deal about this color, but after using it, i realized that sometimes this color is that little "something" thats missing! i could not have found a more perfect color to go with this card and im glad i tried it out!
here's the inside. it has a little pocket on the left to put goodies inside! its a new accucut that we have that is great to use as a single card or even better for invitations! the pocket is perfect for rsvp, directions, registration...you name it!

i have to get going, but thanks for stoping by!

lets see...what else is going on...i'm redoing my bedroom. why is that relavant roxie? THIS IS A SCRAPPY BLOG!!! yeah i know i know! gimme a chance to explain myself jeez!!!!
its scrappy related because i based the color scheme off a piece of paper!
i color matched the colors in the paper to these bazzill colors:

bazzill white
i love doing home decor with my scrappy stuff, so im going to use these colors to create the decor that will go in my room. i know you guys remember that book i made with these colors! it had that giant cream flower on it, that is going to be an element in my decor. thats how im going to use the pretty papers and ribbons.
once i made my swatch out of cardstocks, i took it to home depot and picked out the color of paint to match. i chose to go with the hazel, because blue is a soothing color and i felt that the green might be a little to harsh for an entire wall, let alone all four walls!
i got my paint sample and painted a section of my wall to make sure i love the color and BINGO! it was perfect! now today after work, i am going back to home depot to pick up the primer and paint!
i told you that my sister is coming home and since she will be staying the craft room, i had to move it back into my room (i am up to my eyeballs in crafty scrappy stuff!) since i have so much stuff in my room, im going to do 2 walls at a time. i will be doing before and after shots (cuz thats really the best part right?) oh yeah and the ceiling. i heard you are supposed to do that part first.
i soooooo cant wait to get started! have a great monday guys!
