Hero Arts Card

This is a SIMPLE card I made using Hero Arts stamps that are sold at FUNKIE MUNKIE SCRAPS. I even used COPIC MARKERS. I am a novice at these markers but this is not stopping me from collecting them. Stephanie just restocked them today (5/8/09) if you NEED additional colors. Anyway, I made a standard A2 card put a white layer in an embossing folder, ran it through the Cuttlebug, stamped green layer using Meadow ink by Ranger. Used a lighter green paper stamped it with flower, colored with copic marker and added stickles. Easy peasy. I like making cards that are simple and elegant. I love flowers, stickles, rhinestones and ribbon and these are elements usually found on my cards.

Venice scrapbook layout.

This is a layout that I CASE'd from Bazzill papers. I used Making Memories patterned papers and Quikutz die cuts. This was a simple layout to get me in the scrapbook groove. Whenever I do decide to do a page it takes me HOURS. Since I had the Bazzill photo to go from this layout did not take long at all. I also had most of the supplies they used so that made it even better.
This photo was taken in Venice, Italy in 2005--would you say I am BEHIND with my scrapping????

This is my creative space. I have a nice size room in the basement of our house. My dear husband worked very hard on this room. He painted the cabinets, tiled the desktop and most importantly supplied me with internet access. What did we do without it.

If you were not at Funkie Munkie for National Scrapbook Day activities you missed a great time. Stephanie (owner) and Lisa M. (store manager/sister -in-law) and her sister Kim did a wonderful job hosting a fantastic weekend. Lots of fun was had by all, lots of prizes given away, and lots of purchases were made(prices were hard to pass up). I met lots of new people and saw some old friends that I had not seen in awhile. Kim was the official photographer and you can see all of the photos on the Funkie Munkie Scraps blog. Lisa was on prize patrol duty and limped happily along for most of the day (she unfortunately has a broken foot). Myself with other members of the design team did make and takes all day. All in all it was an awesome day.

Over the course of the NSD activities, Stephanie displayed a talent I did not know she had. She has an awesome memory. I observed her calling so many people by name. I asked her about this skill and she stated she learned it from her Father. I think this is such an important attribute. People love to be remembered. You can always expect great service when you visit Funkie Munkie Scraps. Stephanie and Lisa work really hard to earn and keep your business.
