Thanking Our Teachers

Each year I make something for my boys teachers to thank them for their hard work. This year I was inspired by another scrapbooker to decorate a jar, and fill it with candies....Who doesn't like candies, right?
I found these cute little jars at Walmart, and I used the Plantin cartridge using the Cricut expression machine. I was so happy to hear that the teachers loved the gift.

Busy Busy Busy......

Life has been a little hectic for me lately. As I have previously posted I had an awesome opportunity to teach others how to use Provo craft products. The first one I demo'd was the cricut cake.

The Cricut Cake is an machine that you can create great designs using edible product such as gum paste, frosting sheets, fondant, chesse, and even tortillas. Alot of the demostrators have made some great stuff with the machine. I made my sons birthday cake using the Cake. I had alot good feed back from customers on the machine, and I love that the cartridges can be used with the other Cricut Provo craft products. How awesome is that?

Then I was off to the Costco Road Show teaching the Cricut Expression to the many members. My manager said that our team did awesome. I was so excited to hear this because I had such a blast teaching what I am so passionate about. Scrapbooking has been part of my life for the last 13 years.

I cant wait to get my very own Expression, so that I can create all the great things my creative mind has been thinking about. Pictured here is a little shadow box I made using theOnce Upon A Princess, and the Give A Hoot cartridge. Hope you like it.
