Footloose 10 Page Workshop
Great for you Summer Photos

Contact me at  to register for this workshop

Here is the list of supplies that will need to be
pre-ordered for each person that wants to participate:
X7151B Footloose paper packet ($9.95)
(2) X5900 White Daisy cardstock 6-packs ($2.95 each)
Z1372 Green Buttons and/OR Z1371 Blue Buttons ($5.95)**
Z1450 Cork Alphabet ($5.95)
Z1680 Dimensional Elements Stars ($3.25)
Z1336 Pearl Opaques Adhesive Gems ($2.95)
Z280 Natural Hemp ($2.25)

** Workshop attendees will be dividing up the buttons amongst us evenly

so you will get a variety of both colors to use on your pages during the workshop!

Online customers will need to order both sets of buttons OR invite a friend to join in on the workshop with you so you can split/share your buttons with them! 

When you attend the workshop "in person" with me you will also have use of a few other supplies that will be necessary including Creme Brulee, Desert Sand, and Lagoon ink pads, sponge daubers, "line" stamps for journaling spots, liquid glass, glue dots, 3-d foam mounting tape, bonding memories glue, and prisma glitter and/or glitz glitter gel to add some sparkle! If you are creating these pages at home and you don't already have the additional supplies I've just listed, you may want to order these items for yourself to use also. You will need to provide your own tape-runner adhesive to use (or purchase some from me during the workshop) as these pages may require as many as two or three tombow refills, if that's the adhesive you prefer to use.


 I am excited to offer you the option to join in on this workshop from the  comfort of your own home! Simply shop online and order the list of supplies shown above (including both packs of buttons!) and/or anything else you might want or need from my website at When you purchase these items from me online, I will e-mail you a beautifully-illustrated full-color 11-page workshop guide to help you make your own pages!! I will also mail you the pre-cut pieces of cardstock (by request) that are cut with the Cricut, if you don't yet own the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge that cuts out the stars and a few other shapes used on these pages for us so easily!

Dr. Seuss Quote

I came across this quote today and it reminded me of a friend who is dieing from cancer.

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” 
― Dr. Seuss

How wise is Dr. Seuss. This quote is cheering me up today.

I am sad to see her leave but I cherish the conversations we had and that made me laugh.

Today I will  think about all the good memories and create a special card.

Stay tune I will post it  as soon as it is done.  Enjoy your day!

My favorit procduct from Close To My Heart :Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

I have been using my Cricut Art Philosopy cartridge so much lately to cut cards and embellishments. What I love about this cartridge  is that it is versatile, I can cut basic shapes, letters, 3-D items, flowers etc.This card was entirely cut with the Cricut and the Art Philosopy cartridge.

All products used are Close To My Heat otherwise mention:

Stamp Thanks using Chocolate ink pad, on the Colonial White Square
Attached all pieces as shown add a little piece of ribbon and you have a beautiful thank you card ready to give.

Tips: Did you know you can use our Bounding Memories Glue to revive your Cricut cutting mat?

When my Cricut cutting mat is not sticky enough to hold the cardstock in place, I clean it with a cleaner (I used Lysol for kitchen) and a microfiber cloth. Once it is dry I apply a thin coat of Bonding Memories Glue. I let it dry very well so it become a temporary bond. The first few times you use it it will be very sticky so do not put too much pressure on your cardstock.

Have a great day!
