Ahhhh my first scrapbook page of my husband and I

I love to scrapbook about my kids but for the first time I focused on a page of Tony and I.  We always have a Halloween party with different themes every year.  This year our theme was Mardi Gras.  You won't see us much with our masks as we removed them cause they were so hot.  I love the products in the mini which focused on Halloween and challenged myself to use them all.  

You must think I'm crazy because it's November and I am scrapbooking about Halloween and in August I was making Christmas cards.  Well I always scrapbook with what inspires me that day.  Also at our club day we decided our theme for each month and in November, we knew we would have plenty of Halloween pictures.  You are welcome to come next month.  Our theme is Holidays and Christmas and it will be on December 28th.  It's always the 4th Tuesday of the month.  I hope to see many of you.

I had seen a scrapbook page at one of our team meetings and decided to add more elements.  I used this page at a stamp club this month.  Our theme was Halloween but I focused on textures.  Like usual you will not see all the elements in this picture, but live it is beautiful. 

Texture but How?

1.  The first thing I did is wheel the midnight musings wheel with versamark on my cardstock and I took out my pastels and daubed black pastel on the versamark.  Wow I think I hadn't done that in so many years but this technique still wows me:)

2.  I added the black flourish designer jewels from the mini p8

3.  I passed the word BOO and the top note die shape with the textured embossing folder spider web on p.6 of the mini

4.  I added the black lace called raven from p.8 of the mini

5.  I also crimped the black waffle paper

6.  I punched out  bitty bat large punch and popped them with dimensionals

7.  Before adding my pictures I spritz a combination of champagne mist with rubbing alcohol

8.  One of the top note die was embossed with the spider web embossing folder and I sanded it with a sanding block to create a felt texture.

There you go 8 techniques to add texture to a page!

Have a great weekend and for my friends in the states Happy Thankgiving!

A day to remember…

This past Saturday, I hosted my semi-annual Holiday technique retreat.  It was a fabulous day full of surprises.  The day started with a light snow fall, which cause a local driver to have an accident near my house.  This accident caused for all my out of town guests to do a detour!  Everyone of them made it safe but for out of town guests it wasn't easy to find my house unless they had a GPS…  During the event, power went out x 2hrs because of the morning accident.  Imagine embossing at least 6 techniques without power.  No heat gun, but I kept my cool and we did great.  Yes so great that my guests finished almost 1 hour ahead of time.  I have to say this group was my best group ever!x0x0x  They rocked and were laughing about power failure and all… Expect a surprise in the mail from me if you attended, you were awesome!  I will share a few highlights of the day!  We made 20 techniques.  There was great food,swapping, gifts and the best part:  seeing some of my demonstrator friends which I had not seen in a while.

Delicious Snowflake cookies, these were my favorite:)

Awesome talented ladies:)

Socializing with "long time no see" friends!

  

 Here is Jenn working at it's best, she is part of my Cupcake cuties team and so talented.  I am so grateful and blessed to have met her and so many more…

  

 And last but not least I love this picture of Trina.  Chilling after the event.  She had brought projects to share which I need to take pictures to show you & the swaps.  I met Trina a few years back, she is so talented and kind.  Do you remember Trina traveling with Rochelle & I to the states just to go to Targets,  Jordan was just a baby!?

***If you would like to sign up for the next Technique retreat, it will take place June 25th so save that date.  Again, places will be limited so email me to save your spot.

Can’t wait until Saturday:)

It's been fun and exciting at the same time.  Lot's of you are purchasing the amazing starter kit at 50% off.  If you would like to learn more about this great opportunity click HERE.  Love when my stampin'family grows:)  Makes me smile:)  This year we will have an amazing Christmas party, full house for sure.  My team is working so hard to make this all happen.  Speaking of precious family, my daughter Lauren celebrated her 9th birthday this past weekend, Saturday the 13th.  She made everyone vote if dinner would be Lebanese or Mexican.  When the family would say:  "  I don't mind, well Lauren would vote for them… Mexican!  So Mexican it was.  We had an awesome time.  Getting together with family is the best.  If you don't know Lauren personally, she is my Ray of Sunshine.  Notices when I get my hair done, when someone has a new piece of clothing and will give you the best compliments ever!  It is so sad that K & W Assaly Clothing doesn't exist anymore.  Back in the days it was THE place to shop.  Lauren would have fit in so wonderfully, working with grand aunt Kay would have been such a blessing…Family business has always been practiced with the Assaly's.  I sometimes wonder if one of my girls will work with my husband…

Here is my sweetheart Lauren, happy birthday again my sweetie:)

I have been decorating for the Holiday's earlier this year.  I normally decorate on December 1st, but this year is special.  I am hosting for the first time my semi-annual retreat.  It's a retreat where we decorate a linen album and everyone makes and learn 20 new techniques using stampin'up products.  I love it!  It's lots of work but I use these albums so much.  My focus for this technique day is holidays and winter!  These sampler techniques will also be great mountables for cards.  You ladies are going to have a wonderful day, delicious food & a Holiday Ambiance…

Here is my cover, attendees will be able to do 1,2 or 3 ornaments.  I always do a technique on my cover, this year the new technique is Dying Pearls.  Marina Mist and Early Espresso pearl, I just love it!  More details about this event HERE.  Also, good news, 2 ladies cancelled their 2 go kits therefore everything is cut .  Meaning I have 2 spots open:)  Contact me if you would like to attend!

Oups this is not a card!

Published by under Technique Tuesday,techniques

I love teaching techniques, my event is in 11 days.  I can't wait, I still have a few spots  so join us and I also have 4 spots for to go kits.  So email me!  Since it's technique Tuesday, I wanted to share one of the techniques we did at my Riverfrontstampin retreat this summer.  It's a fun filled day that you learn lots of new ways to play with your stamps and products. 

This summer, Colored spritz smooch was one of them.  So today, I am sharing one of them from this past June.  It's not a card but a sampler and I attach my samplers to a 6×6 of whisper white piece of cardstock with a description of the Technique in French for my french stampers and in English for the english stampers.  You leave my studio with a linen album filled with fun techniques.  The beauty of this book is that I carry it with me at all my workshops.  When a customer asks me a question, I can point out at the image and describe how to make it.  Also it's fabulous when you want to make a card, scrapbook page, 3 D item, (choosing a technique from this book makes it much easier.)

Colored spritz smooch:

1.  Apply a light ink color on an acetate sheet

2.  Apply a darker color over the acetate inked sheet.

3.  Spritz 3x some spritz smooch on the inked acetate.

4.  Use a background stamp and ink it with the inked and spritzed acetate sheet.

5.  Stamp on whisper white cardstock

6.  Voila
