CARTA BELLA WORKSHOP
On Saturday I was lucky enough to be able to attend two workshops taught by the talented and funny Lindsay Moore of Carta Bella at my favorite scrapbook store, Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. In the first class we made 4 cards using Carta Bella’s “Merry & Bright” line and at the second class, in the afternoon, we made a 2-page layout using Carta Bella’s “Christmas Day” collection . . . It was not only educational, but there was lots of fun, laughter and food . . . here are a few pictures taken that day . . .
As you can see a good time was had by all . . . Lindsay’s mother, Dixie, was even there . . . I am looking forward to when Lindsay comes here again and teaches a workshop!!!! Below is a picture of the 2-page layout I made (with some of my own changes, you know scrapbookers always make changes-LOL) . . . I don’t have a picture of the cards I made as I gave those to Karen to pass on to our soldiers overseas as part of the “Operation Write Home” project her store participates in . . .
Sooooooooo . . . that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by . . . Hugs & Kisses . . . LindaB
A SIMPLE COVERUP
See, the ugly DSL Filter box on the wall . . .
See the simple cover up . . .
Ok so it wasn’t quite so simple . . . back in 2010 I made a cute halloween “Bingo Card Wall Hanging” following the directions of Lisa Pace. Love the wall hanging but could never find the right spot in the home for it . . . then the other night I had one of those “wake me up at 3 am ideas”. . . I knew exactly how I was going to cover up the ugly DSL filter box and what I was going to use . . . soooooooo the next day I went out & purchased a framed naked stretch canvas (made sure the hole in the back was wide & deep enough to cover the filter box) . . . painted it with black acrylic paint and using scrap paper mounted the halloween wall hanging to the canvas . . . I love it when things I make are not only practical but cute to boot!!! . . . Well that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by . . . till later Hugs & Kisses . . . LindaB
