Name Frame Class

Yes, I am finally uploading a completed class. Both groups did a great job with their frames, and everyone was so excited with what they had created. So many more ideas came out of what they did and I'll bet about half the gals will make another frame soon. Anyways, in no particular order, the first batch ... except that I will show mine first ;)...

I made this and have it on my desk at work... Where I work is a large call center and when I was still on the main floor, I had to share (horrors) my cubicle with another agent. Now, we have moved upstairs to the mezzanine and we have enough desks, so I no longer share... don't get me wrong, I don't mind sharing, but my desk space was sort of personal.
Anyways, I hope you like these and will send some comments for the gals!

This next one deserves a little explanation and maybe Fiona will make a comment as to what exactly the acronym stands for. Fiona works in a hospital and is a Nurse (yeah for nurses!) This acronym has something to do with her department I think.


Monica Created this beautiful frame for her family. Didn't it turn out great? the colours are so "in" I love it!!!




Last but not least... Pam created this adorable "masculine" frame for her grandson. The accents with the buttons and ribbon are just perfect for a boy's room.

Perennial Friendship


Here again is another swap card. This one was Created by Wendy Jacobson and really the scan does not do it any justice. It is so beautiful in real life, the floral layer is coved with a beautiful shimmer of dazzling diamonds.

I have just not had enough time to get things together here for my blog. Time just keeps floating away on me. Of course I am busy reading on all sorts of blogs, make sure you check them out... Some of my favourites are listed here along the side, quick and easy for you to check.

yet More Winter Mini Samples




I sure hope you are enjoying these. No one ever comments and I am starting to feel like no one is even looking at these.
Anyways... here is a couple more from the swap I hosted in Dec. The first one, created by Anne Jobes, the scan really does it NO justice.. the white "friends" actually has a layer of "diamond dust" on it and is really goregeous in person. I may try to take a photo of it instead...
























This one was created by my good friend and downline, Lori Landy. She showcased the tags really well and the colour combinations are very cute. This card was made using "Small Saying" from the Winter Mini

Love Matters - just in time for Valentines!


I loved this set from the moment I saw it. I had visions with these colours so of course I had to try them out. It is a great set and very versatile for both card making and scrapbooking alike. I have a challenge for you. If you own this set, have made a card or scrap page using it, send me an email: Challenge with the link or the sample and I will "link" to it from my blog, or post it for all to see. I love to see how others also use this set.

Winter Mini Swap Cards


Ok, I promised a long time ago that I would upload the Winter Mini Swap cards. I had scanned them all right away with full intentions of doing this but in the meantime I got a new job (with microsoft) and was training for 4 weeks. After that was the act of learning on the job... then 2 more weeks of training during which time I was one of the chosen to become part of the backend team...so ya! another week of yet more training. It was pretty intense, but now I have been working for 2 weeks in my new position, first with IE7 and now with Vista... phew... it is a tough job.

anyways, As I find the cards back on my computer (did some major cleaning and backups in order to install Vista) I will upoad each one just so you can see them yet. Who knows, you might just decide you "gotta have it" LOL. here is the first one, by KA Beaudry
