Valentine Collage

I love the 12 x 12 Framed Collage Projects.  Recently I was asked to come up with a Valentine Collage for a women’s crafting night.  Here’s the finished project.

I love the way it turned out, so much so that I’ve decided to offer it as a class.

If you are in the Sacramento, CA area and you would like to make this, go to my website to check out the details and to RSVP!




Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Stamping!

My daughter loved thses little treats so much, she decided to make them for her friends.

She decided to use the ‘for you’ stamp in place of ‘love you’ 6a0105349b02a7970b017ee8805d54970d-800wi
