Whooo Loves Workshops?

The deal right now is the Whoos' Your Valentine kit which is very nice, but...
I have 3 boys.. and I personally don't give out Valentines... so it's not for me right?


So first off I have to say I LOVE owls.  And thus I LOVE this stamp set!

And to show you you don't have to be a 10 year old girl to enjoy this kit I'm doing a Whooo Loves Cards and Whooo Loves Scrapbooking workshop in January!  Here's what we'll be making:

Stay tuned for more information about this workshop- there is more than meets the eye!
Also in January we'll have another scrapbooking workshop and an open house to celebrate the new catalog!

Easy Gift: Frame

Christmas is just around the corner!  Here is a quick and easy gift that is sure to wow whomever is lucky enough to receive it!

This is just a cheap frame from IKEA- all you do is add some flowers cut out from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I rolled them, glued them with some liquid glass, and then added some liquid glass to some of the petals and added prisma glitterI also added some pearls to the centers of the flowers.  Then you glue the flowers on with the liquid glass.  

I added some pearl flouishes (which I also glued with liquid glass) and then tied some ribbon on the bottom. This was so fun to make and pretty easy too!
