Featured Demonstrator of the month! (Part 1)


Each month I am showcasing one of my talented downline as a "featured demo of the month" and this month it is Melissa Carr!

She has only been a demonstrator for a short while but already she is doing some fantastic things including those quilt bags. She has made some unbelievable bags that I have already shown on my blog.  Here are a few of her other creative projects….





She brought all of these to our meeting last night and this was definitely my favorite one! I just loved these coasters and the box she made to put them in. She has made a ton of them for gifts and I told her she needs to sell them at craft shows.




She stamped the coasters in black stazon and then colored them using a blender pen and the craft inks. THen she baked them at 350 for 20 minutes and sprayed them with acrylic sealer.  I think they came out fantastic! Here are directions for the box

This is for a set of 4×4 inch coasters with felt feet.  

Cut CS 7 ½ x 8 ¾

With 8 ¾ in. side against the top of score pad, score 3 ½ in. from each side.

With 7 ½ in. side against the top of score pad, score 1 ¾ in. from each side.

Melissa has also provided a tutorial on her own brand new blog! Check it out here!







This is a card made out of the clear window sheets that are in our catalog. I loved this card too.







THis card reminded me of the string art projects my daughter used to make all the time. I thought it was so cool looking. That is the sweet pea designer paper in the back.



I thought this card was just gorgeous and very manly looking. It looks like cracked glass but she made it using scotch tape! If you look closely at the clock, you can see the little pieces of tape all over it and then you sponge it with creamy caramel on top. How cool is that. I will post the rest of Melissa's projects in a couple days. Please leave a comment and let Melissa know what you think.


Sense of Time….


Here are some great samples made by some of my wonderful stamping friends. I recently did a swap for the Occasions mini with a bunch of my friends so I will be spotlighting different sets from the Occasions mini the next few days. Today I am showing the set "Sense of Time" on pg 22 in the Occasions mini. If you didn’t get one in the mail, please let me know. I have extras here if you didn’t get yours. If you would like to order this set or anything else, just click on the shop now button at the top of the screen or send me an email at .



This one was made by my good friend Mary Ann Grimmer from Charlotte, NC. She always does a fabulous job. I love the corduroy button accent too.










This one was made by my friend Leila Rae from Florida.I love that distressed look.











And this one was made by one of my very talented downline Sandy Alexander who lives right here in Chesapeake, VA. I hope you enjoy the samples. Please leave a comment if you have time. Have a great Easter weekend.
