Purse Bag with matching 3 x 3 cards


Here is a sample of a project I am working on for the Chamber of Commerce event I have been asked to attend. I will be making a variety of items to sell as Mother's Day gifts. When I know more details of the event I will send you an invite. Won't these be so very cute. I will also be having a class on this project. Let me know what you think. If you read my posts you will see I have a variety of class projects in the works. Come back and check the calendar for updates.
Blessings, Diane

Disney Vacation Album


Here is my finally finished project. Sorry no pictures to put inside my album yet. I used a great pocket die at work to make the pocket pages. The frames are also cut out from a die. The stickers are from Pinecone Press. The papers are also from Pinecone Press. I just love them. I plan to have a class for this project soon. I think the pockets are great for keeping tickets, receipts and extra photos you can pull out to look at. What do you think??

"Diane's Place" Stamping


Classes at Michael's end in just two weeks. You have all shared that you want to continue getting together to stamp and be creative.
I will be having Open House stamping on Thursday nights at "Diane's Place". I have several events to prepare for and several projects to make in the next few weeks. I need to for my own sanity reduce something in my life. So, I have decided instead of planning projects for Thursday's for a short time I want you to come to my place and continue to stamp, be creative and make projects. Those that attended my recent Open House had a great time. Please see the calendar for more details and other classes coming up.

Blessings, Diane

Spring Flap Album

Here is a cute flap album I finished. I used the new Bloomin' paper from Pinecone Press. Are they just not colorful. I have this flower version and also have a guy version. I will be planning a class for this project soon. Let me know what you think.
Enjoy! Blessings, Diane
