This cute little heart paper mache ornament I did for one of my art groups. Covered it with pattern tissue paper and then added the rosette and the cupid. The cupid has stickles on it. The rosettes with the cupid looks great on a card too.
Bottle caps were the theme for my other art group this month. I painted a canvas with watered down tube acrylic paints and then stamped on it to give it some texture. Die cut the flower from a Tim Holtz die and Basic Grey Out of Print paper. Made leaves from a book page and doodled a little with a charcoal pencil. Oh and added the words I printed on the computer. I loved how it all came together!

Welcome to the event I planned for a friend of mine (Carla). I decorated the game room at her place of work on January 7th. I placed this large plastic snowflake on the door so it was the first thing the ladies saw when they arrived.
Center piece for table.
Corner of dessert table. I made bows from tulle and glued a snowflake in the center. Then just pinned them to the tablecloth. Easy but cute!

The ladies at the scrapbook page table. I think this might be the only photo I got of Renna looking up at the camera. She was always concentrating on her project! LOL

The ladies had a wonderful time that day. They were impressed with how much work I put into the event and the projects they did. I was so happy they were happy!! I was also so grateful I took the online Spark Your Christmas Class from Margie Romney Aslett in December. You can still take the class, go to here and take a look http://margieromney-aslett.typepad.com/im_just_a_girl/2011/11/spark-your-christmas.html . I am telling you it is well worth it!! I just used her inital ideas for decorations and such and added my own twist, changed the colors somewhat and a different theme. She is now doing a Valentine online class too. Go here to see about it http://www.margieromney-aslett.typepad.com/ . She is fabulous!!!

When I first saw this stamp I thought of Summer time. The mouse was getting a tan. I was surprised the image was for February. But it is cold at this time of year (normally is, today we were almost in the 70's) so why not make a fun colorful card to help you think warmer times are on the way!

I have been working on items for my friend's event this weekend. The students will be doing five scrapbook pages for one class. I was going to use some of my cards for ideas but decided to just wing it. I ended up buying supplies at the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie http://www.thecraftyscrapper.com/ and just getting the ideas for the pages with the stuff I bought. Only one came from one of my cards. I think I came up with some great pages.
|These were wonderful leaves from Prima, I cut off the stems and curled them up to use.|
|I used a doily on this one too.|
|Close-up of bike. I think it was from Melissa Francis or Prima. I added flowers to the basket.|

This is the canvas class they will be doing. I copied the technique from Christy Tomlinson. http://www.christytomlinson.typepad.com/the_scarlet_lime/ She did a canvas with a tree shape because it was around the holidays.
These are the favor bags for the students. Thank goodness the event is only for three people. I am running out of time!! But it has been fun to plan this from scratch. I love the theme of snowflakes and valentines.

|Little note pads I found for the students too.|
I originally did these boxes for favors and then decided to do the bags also. I put a pair of valentine socks in these boxes. Cute!!

I had to do a table center piece. The colors and several of the decorating ideas came from the class I took from Margie Romney Aslett http://margieromney-aslett.typepad.com/ It was a wonderful class!

Last but not least I did a Welcome sign for the door into the event. Love the dollar store and these snowflakes!
