We'll be creating 2 Graphic 45 tags
and then incorporating them into
2 greeting cards.

Hope you can join me!
I had a bit of a break prepping for October workshops and dug out my stash of Halloween supplies. Talk about some vintage supplies! Do you remember Rusty Pickle's Halloween or Design Originals Halloween? Yep, still kept them and used them this past week. They're still wonderful!
The base pages are from Rusty Pickle
(yes, I keep all the stuff I really like regardless of how old)
all caught up in a 7 Gypsies Bind-It-All
Since it's Halloween, I felt the need to make this eye look bloodshot.
Every page of this book is interactive
with pull-outs, tags, mini-booklets, belly bands, pockets and magnets.
You can see more of the pages here:

It's three workshops featuring Graphic 45 Christmas Carol
all in one weekend
If so, here's the details of what to bring:
traveled to Memphis TN this past weekend
for a weekend filled with Graphic 45's A Christmas Carol.
I taught Graphic's Mixed Media Album with many inter-active pages
while Timi played Vanna and helped me immensely
giving out papers and helping students find kit ingredients.
We had a great time with our 30+ newest friends!
The pot luck lunch - OH MY GOSH - it was beyond delicious.
I need recipes please.
Then on the way home we stopped at
It was fast food but my oh my was it delicious!
I had the ribs and they were fall-off-the-bone
with a smoky flavor that was just right and a sauce that was finger-lickin' good.
We came home with gifts from the Memphis gals
one of which was a package of Memphis BBQ sauces.
One more weekend of Graphic 45 workshops at Checkered Cottage!
In the meantime, I've been working on a Halloween book
I bought very little and decided to use my stash
made up of various lines and of course, a bit of Graphic 45 embellishments.
Now for the back of each page and the binding.
Friday, October 16
This workshop is full. Thank you so much!
Find the list of what to bring here:
has been very busy, measuring, cutting, sorting and kitting
for our Graphic 45 workshop in Memphis.
I ran out of boxes so had to use one from some shoes I had ordered.
The outside of the box read
*something addictive is inside*.
It's now packed with Graphic 45 supplies
so, yes, it is very addictive!
We are very excited about meeting 30 new students!
On another note,
Timi showed me how to complete this mini using
I think she saw it on their site (but not sure).
It has a very clever binding inside!
The binding is attached to the side of the box
so that when you open the box, the book opens as well.
What is it about tiny books that make them so fun to decorate?
See you at Checkered Cottage this week for
Wednesday's Heritage Layout
Friday's Graphic 45 tags.
After that, we're off to Memphis, TN!
