Blessed Card {Feeling Crafty}

I haven’t made a card in a while, and couldn’t resist wanting to play with colors and the idea of the word banners I used on this Christmas banner I just posted yesterday!

I heat embossed on this card, and have been wanting to do more with dry embossing. So, I really can’t wait for tonight’s FREE scrapinar all about embossing! Have you signed up yet? Lain Ehmann and Becki Adams will be helping us imagine the “embossibilites” using embossing folders! The event is at 6pm PST, but even if you can’t make it live, you’ll have access to the replay for a limited time — but you have to sign up in advance! Click HERE to sign-up!

And besides the awesome free scrapinar tonight, have you heard about True Scrap 6? Fired up doesn’t even begin to describe my anticipation for the event coming in October. Eight classes with top-notch crafty instructors {get ready to swoon!}, virtual make-n-takes, live chat with the instructors and scrappy friends from around the world, eternal access to class recordings, and the best part? All from the luxury of my own home. Heck, I can stay in my jammies all day if I wanted! Ready to join me? Click HERE to find out more and get on the early-bird list to get a 30% off coupon…

As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope to *see* you in the chat room in the free embossibilites class tonight and at True Scrap 6 in October!

Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you 🙂

PS. I’m linking up over with A Blog Named Hero, too, as the Ombre challenge helped inspire today’s card!

Meet Dyan {Feeling Crafty}

Every industry has it’s share of trade shows, with at least one big daddy show that *everyone* has to go to. The crafting industry is no different and CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) is the huge trade show that everyone travels near and far to get to. It’s usually in January in Anaheim, California, and I was lucky enough to get to go earlier this year, for the first time ever!

While at the show, I was quite excited to see all the new products that were on display, the booths alone were amazingly designed and decorated, and the make-n-takes were so fun to make (and take)! But nothing beat the thrill of seeing and meeting some of the industry leaders and product designers who’s artistry, styles and products I just adore! There was Tim Holtz, Heidi Swapp, Noell and Izzy Hyman, Jennifer Gallacher, Maggie Holmes, Shimelle Laine and so many more!

One of my favorites to meet was Dyan Reaveley, the beauty and brains behind Dylusions! As much as I normally don’t like being in front of the lens and would rather hide out behind the glass, I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to get a photo with one of my favorite crafty superstars! And during LOAD214 (layout-a-day), I was able to get out some of The Crafter’s Workshop and Heidi Swapp stencils along with Dylusions Spray Inks to create my page… A page about meeting the woman behind the products, with photos of her products and her, creating the background paper using her products!

If scrapbooking makes your heart sing, don’t forget to check out Layout-A-Day (LOAD514) coming up next month… The month long challenge to create a scrapbook page everyday with daily prompts and inspiration pieces will be here in just a couple weeks! And I have a secret to share… I’m one of the featured designers for the month! I created several layouts that will be showcased! I am beyond excited : )

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
