What We've Been Up To!

It was a busy weekend at the store...we created art for our walls, made gifts to give and cards to collect and trade.

In Saturday's workshop we created a spring themed wall hanging generously adorned with butterflies and bling....and a sweet berry basket trimmed with Easter and flowery are some of the results...

Thanks to Lisa, Nora, Pat, and Joan for showing off their work!

And later, another afternoon of of Artist Trading Cards making and trading...Michele features Red Lead stamps, and papers by October afternoon and Graphic 45. Perfect for your ATC art.

Here's what Michele created...

Check out the lovely layers and unexpected details on flowers, itty, bitty eggs, moss, and soft ribbons...

Aren't these just beautiful? Thanks to Michele for another wonderful day of ATC goodness!

Sunday's demo featured fun cardmaking with Hero Arts and Basic Grey. These are two of our favorites companies at Stamp Your Heart Out. They have collaborated on four paper/stamp releases, and yes we have them all!

The elegant and flowery "Hello Luscious" and "Sweet Threads" ...

The happy and festive "Life of the Party"...

And the bright and sassy "Lauderdale" ....

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Make Someone Happy!


  1. Having only made a handful of ATCs to give as gifts, I have big admiration for those who join in the trades. As ever, Michele pulled together great products and the results demonstrate her signature flair. Sunday's cards (love Life of the Party designs) make me wish I would just sit down and create a stockpile for all occasions. Do we think that will happen? Stay tuned. Thanks, Sheila

  2. Sorry to have missed the Sunday demo. I do like Hero Arts and Basic Grey, a lot! The pictures you post from the demos are much appreciated! Thanks,Sheila!
