Mouse Paper Scissors

Holy lovefest!

I signed up for this class, needing to get my butt  back in my craft room, and oooh howdy!  Has it ever!

I am loving it!

(Hence the lovefest..)

It is so much more than just creating the assignments, it is getting me back in touch with me.  It is about loving what I can do, learning how to do it better, and learning how to do more.

It has even gotten me excited to do things that have been on my list (on my table or in my sewing bin) for months.

Good, creative energy.


(Have I said that yet?)

Just a little of what we have been doing:

I have been a crazy card making lady..

They provided us with this darling template that I have been using digitally, but plan to use traditionally as well.

We also have fun envelope templates.

This card was made with all Crystal Wilkerson’s “Sweet Summertime” stuff. 

I used “Lobster” font on the little label there.

Add in some sanding, “Broken China” distress ink (that I hunted all over for..  helloooo, it is turquoise..), staples, dimensional foam adhesive and good old glue dots.

Isn’t it cute?


Then there’s my cute observations notebook..

We made the cover in class using Daily Junque paper by House of Three for Pink Paislee.

(Early release of this paper just for this class = I feel cool.)

I also fell in love with glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.

(I went and bought three more bottles of it.)

(One of those colors are turquoise.)

(It is an obsession.)

I love how it says “Think Positive Today”.

I so need that!mps_notebook

And then there’s my newest, most favorite tool..

The Martha Stewart scoring board.


If you love making cards, or paper crafts of any type, get yourself a coupon, go to JoAnn’s or Michaels and buy one.



It really does make life easier. 

I have always used my Fiskars trimmer with the scoring blade on it, I love this so much more!!  I haven’t torn paper once scoring it.  That bone folder comes in handy too.

Right now I am working on a fun (but secret) project, and loving every minute of it!

When this class comes around again (because it had better, it is that good!) jump on it.  Register for it the second you can.  You do not want to miss out on this!

All your projects look amazing, Mindy! I am loving class too. Isn't the scoring board a tool from the crafting gods? :)
