BLOG HOP day 5- On the way to Chicago- ANNOUNCEMENT


Well, it's FRIDAY.

I am up and wanted to share some news.... well, I am actually at the SLC airport. 
The rumors are true... I get searched every single time. I think it's the glitter that always seems to follow me and the bling on the jeans. 

So I have some news..........

I have been waiting a long time JUST to share this photo-
                         I decided to give you a BIG hint..... 


I can't wait to tell you what I have been doing for the past FOUR months...
pretty much NIGHT and DAY.
I have not been able to sleep
due to this exciting time for my
company.

So STAY tuned for MAY 1st.
It is also the last day of the BLOG HOP with Xyron and Cardmaker Magazine today. It has been a lot of fun. I am headed to Chicago now to go teach this weekend at Creative Cards and Crafts.

I am quite honored to go back again and teach three workshops. Thank you Claudia. I think this is my fourth or fifth time teaching at her amazing store.

I am really fortunate in that I love to meet people and I love to hear WHY they create... what inspires them... and I love to watch what they create with. I am the one often inspired. I always make new friends and I truly enjoy the time I get to spend at the events. I am deeply committed to helping the independent scrapbook stores survive. It is my hope that I am helping to support the stores by going and visiting the stores. I know that together we are all stronger. We need the independent, larger craft stores and online stores to all keep going, growing and surviving. 

I love to look at photos from past teaching trips. It always takes me back to that time.


Also, if you are going to be near the store this afternoon- I am doing this FREE
make n take at the store. 



For day five of the blog hop- I decided to design and share
the MAKE N TAKE that I will be doing at the store today.
I used Urban Market (word paper), UM glittered paper, UM sequins (I'm loving the matte silver and wood grain sequins. 


I used my small FISKARS punch to punch the hexagon shapes. Then I used my TC pink adhesives box to adhere everything down. Apply the pop up dots behind the hexagon shape.
We will be using the card front embossing design from my BEAUTIFUL WORD COLLAGE embossing folder with Craftwell. You can make this card in just a minute or so.

We will use my TC cut & emboss machine as well. Feel free to join us for the free make n take or recreate it.


Hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!!!!!

Love the hexies on the card with the little touch of bling! The bow is wonderful and I'm going to have to try making one. The blog hop has been great, glad a shop on a shop hop told me about you and your products! Had to laugh, I'm drinking coffee from my Chicago mug today.

Maybe a line of linens is the new products? Maybe that is just my wishful thinking. Love the card and wish you were going to do a workshop close to where I live.
