Star Class and Bug Landing

Hello, hope your week is going great.  I've got a few things to share with you.

First, the Star Class.  I taught a class on Saturday at Chico Scrapbooks.  In addition to a wonderful store in Chico, CA owned by Jodie Beck and family,  you can also find them on the web on Facebook and their newly launched web site at:  http://chicoscrapbooks.com/

This fun 3D star wall hanging was inspired by Tammy Tutterow.  She did an amazing star for Vintaj.  Fell in love with it and knew I would have to make my own.  Thanks so much Tammy for the inspiration!  You can find lots more inspiration at Tammy's website at:  http://tammytutterow.com/

I had a small group of ladies who had a fun time making their own wall hangings.  Thanks so much to Pam, Linda, Marybeth, and Michele.  I finally remembered to take some pictures during one of my classes, ha ha ha.  Thanks to Jodie for snapping the group photo with the finish projects!

Second, something I have been waiting months for.  The bugs have landed!  Yikes, bugs, really?  No, not an invasion of real bugs, but the Sizzix layered bee, butterfly, and dragonfly.   Aren't they cool?

I also got the sand and sea bigz and mini dies.

Well, hello my new dies!  I couldn't wait to open the packages and start cutting.  I pulled out some watercolor paper and went to work.  Oh my!  Those shapes and all that textures just makes me swoon.

I grabbed the distress inks and starting bringing them to life.

Oh yes!  This is what I've been waiting for.  Yippee!  Looking forward to trying markers, stains, perfect pearls, crackle and more on these guys.  They just make me smile!  How about you?  Lots of ideas for cards, wall hangings, and more.  Stay tuned for more adventures with our bug friends.  And don't forget the seahorse and sand dollar. Grin!  Hee, hee, hee.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Happy Creating!

Hugs,  Sharon
