MOJO Monday Week 74

Can't believe how quickly time has gone by. Its Monday again and the new sketch challenge is this! 

I've been traveling so I wasn't able to post this, but here is what I made. 

I think this card could use something else on it. Could it use maybe a textured background, some "bling", or ??? I don't know. However, I think it still works with the simplicity of it, and I am pleased with this new technique I learned: bleaching. I stamped the image with a dark ink and then "inked" the same image in bleach and stamped right on top of the dark image. Thus, giving my card a shadow look. I love all the endless possibilities of what you can find and use with stamping. Hope you enjoy!

Post It Note Holder

I have seen these around but never got around to making one for myself.  I wanted to make this as a thank you gift to all my customers and as gifts for those who choose to book a workshop with me. Adorable isn't it? You can get the mini pens at Target (dollar section). You gotta love Target. 

Valentine's Day Workshop

I have been having so much fun playing with all my new goodies!! Did I mention that Stampin' Up! has come out with its Spring/Summer Catalog?!!!! I LOVE IT! Some of the things I've been doing is making Hostess gifts. Since Valentine's Day is coming up and I have a workshop based around this theme, I made my hostess a Valentine's Day box filled with large tags and chocolate. Yummy to look at and eat, right?! Thanks to Becky Roberts for her tutorials. 

The next project is a mini magazine holder for storing 3x3 birthday notes. This project was quick and easy to do. You always need a good stash of  birthday cards, you can never have enough.
