I was clearing my room over last weekend and found some projects which I made earlier this year at the winter show in Anaheim. The two which are shown here are mainly tags. The Mom & me tag album is rather sweet - it has hidden pockets for journals and room for pics. The other mini tag album is made of chipboards by K&Co, equally sweet.

My sis and I went to the CHA Summer show in Chicago. We had a swell time, but absolutely tired out walking from 9am till 5pm daily at the show. I attended the Hero Arts plus HOTP workshops plus various make & takes during the show. Had lots of fun seeing all the new Christmas products and trying the various new items. I came home with LOTS of rubberstamps and despite the long flight home and the baggage delay I was happy! Here are some the cards which were made - all Christmas themes.
Another card is made for a friend who lent me a book to read. The lettering was from Hero Arts' stamp and punch out flowers with little gemstones.The last card is made on Parchment paper, using stencilling technique - basically painting with your finger! The waterlily is done with stencils and water soluble crayons. The borders are embossed and perforated and cut out. This is a Pergamano technique - and I'm a qualified Pergamano International tutor, I reckon I'm the only one in this country. Enjoy!

I've been inspired to start Digital Scrapbooking. Maybe this is the best solution to stop buying all those papers n embellishments that take up so much space and makes my room a mess!
Here's one of photos taken in Anaheim Disney back in Feb this year. I was there for the Winter CHA.
