Happy New Year!

Five days into the new year!  Happy 2012 everyone!  Lots of ideas for new projects this year.  Starting in February, I will be teaching a Tim Holtz technique class every month at the Scrapbook Outlet so I need to start prepping for that....It's always hard to get in the swing of classes every year, but it's so fun.

While trying to get into the creative mood, I created this little card using some Distress Ink, Tim Holtz Stamps, and Hero Arts Stamps.  It's along the same lines as the card I posted last month, but a change on the colors.  I always have problems making sympathy cards and this one seems to be suiting for such an event.  I think I might even do a class on this sometime.  Maybe quite a few cards....I always like to take a class when you have a lot to take home...  :) And there's nothing better than a quick card....So maybe this class will be fast-paced with quite a few cards being made....focusing on simple techniques that can be reproduced in quantities in little time.  The problem will be keeping all the stamping within the two stamp sets.  The Hero Arts set has multiple sentiments so it won't be a problem....I'll have to see how many different backgrounds I can come up with using the Tim Holtz set!  I have some new Spellbinders on the way so maybe that will help matters a little bit!!  :)

Well, hopefully this weekend I will get my Scrap Cave sorted back to where it was pre-Christmas...  It's a disaster in there right now!!  Hubby got me an Ott-lite for Christmas and I haven't had a chance to use it just yet.  Super excited about this light!  I use them at my scrapbooking retreat in Michigan and love the light they produce!  In the Scrap Cave, the light is not very bright and I sometimes have troubles seeing different shades of colors.  I'm sure this light will help a TON!

Well, I need to go warm up with a cup of coffee and finish watching my shows on TV....

Happy Scrappin!
