Papermadeprettier on KTHV the Vine 11 - look at me on TV!

Valentines on The Vine KTHV 11
I love KTHV, the Vine morning show. I was blessed to be able to share about my papercrafting business on television this morning. I missed the sweet regular anchors, but the guest anchor was Craig O'Neal, so you know it was a scream!  We talked about valentines and also the importance of community and getting together with others - especially in this winter-blues heavy time period!  

The class is $15 or free with a minimum purchase. All are welcome!

Bonanza Buddies and Bees - 2 cards, one sketch!

This is a tale of two bundles and one sketch!  I love card sketches. Do you know why? Stampin' Up has amazing suites of coordinating products, and when I start with a card sketch, it frees up my mind to make amazingly creative cards in a snap!  I started with this stamp set/die bundle and the coordinating Bonanza Buddies Suite of products

Bonanza Buddies Bundle

Bonanza Buddies Suite 
This is the card sketch that we are using with our team for an online Sketch Challenge, run by one of our amazing leaders - Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart. The sketch was designed by Jana Eubank.
To use a sketch, just follow the photo!  Add what you want where the circles are, then add the sentiment as shown and the other layers as you wish.  There are no "rules" so to speak, but this frees up your mind towards proper balance and structure and lets your creativity soar!  

Click below to see how to make this card on my Facebook Live Replay:
