My Amazing Day At InvenTORI

Today was such an exciting day. I got to go to Tori and Dean's InvenTORI shop to deliver the last batch of cards. These "Thank You" cards from our "Autumn Wishes" Collection turned out so pretty. They were a lot of work but totally worth it.  Hope all the cards sell well!

But to our delighted surprise, when we arrived, there were camera crews and interviews taking place. Apparently, Tori was there doing some promotional interviews for their reality show, "Home Sweet Hollywood." At first, we were a little unsure of how to enter the shop because of all the lights, cameras and action! I didn't want to mess up the taping! But we got in there and were able to look around while all this was going on. We didn't get to see or meet Tori but it was fun to know she was there along with some other recognizable entertainment reporters.

I was able to meet the store staff that we had been doing business with over these few weeks. Oh, I felt like we were old friends. They were so warm and personable. And the shop... ADORABLE! The type of items they sell are wonderful and the store itself is very cozy and stylish. This store has two sides and a quaint courtyard in between. Can't wait to go back so I can see the full store. If you are in the So. California area it is definitely worth the visit. InvenTORI

So here is a look at our fun day.

Sherman Oaks, California

Lovely staff!

Ron and I so proud of our card "babies."

Don't our cards look great there?

Also, Lisa Rinna's shop, "Belle Gray" was a few doors down. I went in there and they had some very amazing fashions. I loved the shoes and the purses. Fabulous! So this whole little area was filled with fun and unique shops. Great area to park, shop and enjoy!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
