peeking out from under my rock

~waving hi!~

Yes, I'm still here.  LOL.  Been doing lots of planning and organizing.  Stuff I'll be able to share with you later this month. 

I thought I'd share with you a card I made for the April issue of Scrapbook News and Review.

You may recognize it as the one I shared that I made the cover of the magazine!!!!  This is by far my favorite card I've ever made!!  Lots of misting, pastes, gels, inks and rub-ons.  I'm just so in love with the color combo, too. 

April 2011

The June tutorials are up in Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.  Check it out! 

June 2011

There are lots of fun ones this month including creating textured butterflies, lots of different paper flowers, adding vintage flair to hardware store finds, creating a ceramic stucco background (LOVE it!) and a few from me like stamping with watercolor crayons, using a stamp alignment tool and creating custom ink pads and foam stamps.  I've also done some testing and comparisons of embossing static pouches.  Trust me, you will not be disappointed with June's tutorials section!

Did you know Scrapbook News and Review Magazine published TWO TIMES A MONTH??!!!!!!  There is tons of yummy eye candy published on the second Sunday of the month and then as if that isn't enough we publish oodles of tutorials and primers on the last Sunday of the month.  Can't get that much content in just one print magazine! 

Plus did you know we share lots of tutorials, sketches, eye candy and fonts on our front page every week?  Oftentimes, around holidays (hint hint) we'll also run holiday-related shows. 

AND we have a hopping forum where we share lots of tips.  Check it out!!!


So, Diana says I must be allergic to double-page layouts because I'm always "too busy" to create a Sketchy Thursdays layout whenever there is a double-page sketch.

Hmmm...maybe she's right, LOL.  Of course, I'm aware I can use only one side of the sketch if I want (and you can, too) .  LOL!!!

I hope you have lots of awesome, fun plans for the weekend and if you are in the States, hopefully you have a 3-day weekend!
