Where I've Been....





I'm in the process of creating 60 tags to exchange at a training session for Fiskars next weekend in San Antonio, Texas. I was invited, with 49 other Fiskateers, to be trained as a Fiskars product demonstrator. I am way excited for my trip and my training! I can't wait to meet all of the wonderfully creative people at Fiskars and from the Fiskateers.com website. I decided to iris fold my tags since I am one of the few people on Fiskateers who knows the art of iris folding. I'm still debating whether it was a wise idea since I have put hours into creating them. Hopefully they will be appreciated.




The heart was punched with a Sizzix heart punch. The papers are mostly Cloud 9 card stocks (that I didn't fold the edges). The picture was taken while I was in Florida two weekends ago with my hubby.


Our trip to Florida was wonderful! We stayed with BobbiLynn, the site administrator of CircleofCrafters.com. We had great plans to do lots of crafts but spent most of our time at the beach looking for shells while our men fished. The weather was sunny and warm. It was so hard to come home. I only created one card while I was there - a 3D card with an image from http://fred-she-said.blogspot.com/. I created this card for a black and white challenge at CircleofCrafters.com. The purple was behind the card when I scanned it so that the border would show.







I still have plans to work on putting my Simply Folding book on disk. I'll get started on it once I'm done with my training next weekend. If you are interested in the book or CD, please feel free to email me.

Your tags are darling!~ I am sure that everyone enjoyed them lots! I hope that re-entry (into real life) hasn't been too painful.
