Whew! This has been an eventful few months and I am sooooo ready for 2010!! Now that I am settled and 'reconnected with the world' I wanted to share some pics from the card showing I had in Alaska right before I moved. Other than my blog and the Cricut MB, this is the first time I've publicly shown my cards and the first time I've sold them. Overall, I think it went very well!
Me at my little table!

Hi Everyone! Thanks for all of the lovely compliments- so glad that the Beehive Card is such a hit! Sorry I've been so quiet- but I am in the middle of the BIG MOVE!! I am moving from Alaska to North Carolina. So I've packed up the Craft Room (so sad) and I'm enroute to the East Coast!!! I'm make sure I'll post when I get settled in!

So I am *very* nervous about this, but I finally did my first tutorial! By friendly request, I demonstrated the Beehive spin-off of the flower pot card. Hope this helps anyone who was wondering how to put it together!
Constructive comments on the tutorial are highly encouraged and more than welcome! Thanks!

So here are two of my ideas that I have come up with so far- the beehive and the barrel of monkeys! I *can't wait* to see what else I can come up with! Now my only challenge if making the envelopes big enough...hmmm....LOL!!

This is the second Note Card Holder set I have done! I decided I wanted to do something fun and upbeat - so flip-flops really filled that order!
A *big thanks* to Dannie Graves for posting her YouTube tutorial on these great note card sets! When I watched I was immediately sold and have made 8 of these sets in the last 24 hours!! So I guess it's very fair to say that I am *totally hooked*! LOL!

This is an anniversary card I made for my friends who just celebrated their very first anniversary! Yay! Keeping in line with my usual style, I kept it simple yet elegant.

My friends are having a baby and I wanted to send a gift in style! And what better way to that to create the gift wrap set myself! LOL!

Even though I love love **love** making cards- my first love will always be cupcakes! I have always loved to bake, but I wanted to get better at decorating- so I took some Wilton classes at M's. The classes were *wonderful*, and I soon discovered that I really enjoy making individual treats for people to enjoy!! My style is really simple, but pretty and decadent; I really like to dress my cupcakes up so people feel like they are getting their own little fancy treat!

My friend had a make-up party and wanted to do something simple and elegant to set the tone for the event. So I created individual custom invitations using a gray scale monochromatic color scheme.
For the thank you card, we did the Joy Fold card in the same color scheme. For the embossing, we used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. Instead of the traditional Joy Fold closure, we used ribbon delicately knotted in the middle.
For the favors, I made the 2-5-7-10 box. This was an incredible easy box to make and I love that you can make it with just one sheet of 8.5 X 11 paper. While making the box, I noticed that I could fold it small enough to fit into a Cuttlebug folder, so just experimenting, I decided to emboss the entire box before I assembled it - and I loved how it turned out! A quick 60 second assembly followed by some sheer ribbon- and it was done!
Here is the link to the 2-5-7-10 box: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/2_5_7_10_box/
The party turned out great- everyone had a fabulous time!

Everyone came with projects to work on and some of us did demos of various Cricut & Cuttlebug techniques. We also bought snacks, but we were having so much fun- we almost forgot to eat!! At the end of the day, we decided that since we had such a great time- we are going to do it every month! I can't wait until next month!!
So-- here are some pics from our first "Crafty Saturday"!
Kind of a random shot- but this was my work area! LOL!
Frederica showed how to create wall art using Provo Craft Vinyl and the new Stand & Salute cart! She's a pro at this!
