I recently hosted a Premiere Jewelry party and some of my friends from the scrapbook show circuit I work ordered some new bling. Their stuff came to me and I mailed it out to them but thought it would be fun to include a little handmade tag for each of them. After all, it is this wonderful craft that brought us together as friends. :) ScrapAce a while back and stamped the sentiment then heat embossed it with neon pink embossing powder! YUM! Using my iRock, another ScrapAce deal!, I attached the little green embellies. The tag is topped off with some crinkled ribbon and We R Memory Keepers twine. Craft Fantastic. The pink in this card is definitely me. Teresa likes vintage inspired crafts so I pulled the doily in for her, but the tag overall has a very CAS feel. I used one of Becca Feeken's new stamp sets for my sentiment. Again this one is topped off with some crinkled ribbons. Avocado Arts stamps. I have known Michelle for years...she used to be our rep when she worked in the industry before opening Avocado Arts. She is a doll. The sweetest thing you could imagine. Of course, I HAD to use Avocado Arts stamps on her tag. ;) This is the January 2012 set. I created the tag with some Canvas Corp fluted cardstock, misted it with some Strawberry Shortcake Glimmer Mist then layered up some Want2Scrap bling and the stamped banner and sentiment. I had fun making these little tags and I hope they put a smile on my friends' faces when they open their packages!

One of the best things about my job is shopping in the booth. Of course, this is also one of the most dangerous too because I could easily spend my whole paycheck there! lol! Last month, I went to a show and we had the big booth, which I hadn't seen in a while. I was thrilled to see we still had some October Afternoon Cakewalk. I snagged up the whole collection and couldn't wait to play! Shelby had a birthday party to go to this weekend so I grabbed my Cakewalk and went to work!

Hello friends! I have been super busy the last few weeks. Lots going on around here. I opened an Esty shop where I will sell some of my jewelry creations. I also decided to open my studio to crops, classes and private parties. You can read more about that on my K8's Classroom blog. I found some great ring blanks with rhinestone bezels and thought they'd be the perfect addition to my etsy shop! Check 'em out...
