Ray and Cat have been at it again.  Look at this amazing teapot and cup that Ray has cut out and that Cat has colored using the new WOW embossing powders.   All I can say is WOW!
Valerie's layouts always inspire me.  I love these that she made using this wonderful collection by Little Yellow Bicycle and featuring her granddaughters.
At the crop this past Saturday, Nanci finished her hidden hinge album from Sandy's class.  As always, I am simply AMAZED.  WOW.  One thing I love is that she used a tag from our June tag class.  I love that Nanci uses her tags on layouts and in mini albums.  If you are like me and missed the class for the hidden hinge album, Sandy is teaching an encore bare bones class at 1:00 p.m. on July 27th.
If you like the tag that Nanci used on her album, you can make some tags at the monthly tag/technique class this Saturday, July 13th at 1:00 p.m.  These classes are so much fun and we learn such wonderful techniques in addition to making beautiful tags.
If you loved the hidden hinge album class that Sandy taught, then you won't want to miss this "Poppy Pocket" album class this Saturday at 10:00 a.m.  This class is very intense and starts PROMPTLY at 10:00 a.m.  There is lots to be done and the class ends at 12:30 to make way for Nanci's tag class.  I'm making a day of it and hope you will join me.  It will be loads of fun!  Call the store and reserve your spot in these fabulous classes!


  1. Nanci's tags are always so fun to look at. I love making mixed media works, because its always so entertaing to have your eye wander through each texture, finding, inks and papers.
    Everyone's hidden hinge albums have turned out great! I really hope to make it to one of those classes sometime! A hidden hinge book might just be my type of craft!

  2. Valerie, I love your layout. You included so many of those precious photos too! What a great job! I'll have to start asking for tips when I want to scrap a few pages but have a lot of photos!
