August’s Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek

Paper Pumpkin Logo

My Paper Pumpkin arrived yesterday and my friend Deb and I started playing with them. Here’s just a sneak peek of what we made. Later on I’ll post all that’s included and some more samples including alternative ideas.

Smash Cake Flip Album…Yum!

My niece Michelle Ugalde is a very talented photographer (check out her Facebook Page) so needless to say for her daughter’s first birthday cake she had a Smash Cake photo shoot. I printed the pictures and made a flip photo album (learned at my friend Vilmarie Maldonado’s class). By the way, my niece borrowed my cake plate and we dyed the ribbon with Tempting Turquoise ink to match her theme. I hope you like the finished product!

19 Years & Counting…!

19 years ago today I married the love of my life and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!

Happy Anniversary to my husband Darren & me!

This is the card I made for him, it was part of swaps that I made but of course his was personalized down to the envelope!

And yes, we got married on April Fool’s Day but neither one of us married a fool!

Creative Ideas

Yesterday I attended a demonstrator get together where we gave demonstrations, shared ideas and swapped cards. Below a just a few of the creative ideas that were on display, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
