The Season of Style Designer Series Paper is really classy.  I love the layering the various patterns in the collection.

My 2012 Christmas Card

This is the Christmas Card I chose to make for my Customers.  I really like way the moonlighting (burnishing) technique that gives the appearance of the a spotlight shining on the ornament. The diagonal embossing on this sample was from a retired Textured Plate.  I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to emboss the cards I mailed.   I mailed every one of them before I took a picture.

CJ’s Journey

CJ’s Journey is a not-for-profit organization that provides hope and assistance to children, young adults, and their families with childhood cancer.  They raise funding for childhood cancer research, assist other organizations that provide funding and support to patients and families effected by childhood cancer, and raise awareness and educate the public about childhood cancer.  The organization was founded in honor of CJ Aubuchon, a young man who lost his life to cancer, by his parents, Dennis and Jeanine Aubuchon.   You can find out more about CJ’s Journey, their mission and ways to support this organization by visiting their website. 

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeanine Aubuchon and her three sisters at a crop this past summer.  Lovely ladies! They invited me to display at their 2nd annual Scrapbooking event which took place on October 20th.  I was honored and tickled pink to participate.   Several of my customer also attended this one day crop.  The event was well organized and the food was abundant and fantastic.  Ten percent of the proceeds of my sales for the day was donated back to this worthwhile organization.  Watch for news about their next crop. 

These are the projects we did as make & takes.
