Even more blog candy!!!

My dear, wonderful, sweet (sometimes bossy) friend Jen is hosting some blog candy on her blog. While you are there, check out her wonderful artwork! She finds the cutest stamps! Seriously! And is nice enough to stamp some images for me. Love ya, Jen!

Make sure you tell Jen I sent you when you sign up for the drawing...

Free Classes at 2 Peas

I will admit it. I am a school geek. I LOVED going to school and would be a college student still if I could. LOL My love of learning new things of course translates into scrapbooking as well. I have taken a few online classes, but they can be pricey (I won the classes I was lucky enough to take at Big Picture Scrapbooking). If you have not checked out the classes on 2 Peas lately, you should. They offer SO many things and alot of them are FREE!

You can go to 2 Peas in a bucket to check them all out, but I am linking to some of my favorites! Maybe you can do the classes with me? I save all the PDF's to my laptop...they are good resources to have.

Thinking Inking Class (will be posting videos and things 3 times a week)

A Year in Cards (great videos to help you make cards all year long)

Super Sketches (a new sketch ever month)

Make Mine Mini (mini album class)

A Year of You

And my all time favorite!!!
Finally Friday Videos (she also does Make a card Monday on Youtube)

You can check out when new videos are posted by going to the Education Thread:
They post on there when they add a video or project for their class.

PLUS if you participate in the classes and post what you can win great prizes!

Hope this inspires someone! Let me know how you like it and share with me if you have a great super "secret" place where YOU find inspiration!

Father's Day Cards

Well, I promised to post my Father's Day cards, so here are 2 of them. My kids picked the themes and cuts and I just put them together.
My husband loves tools, so Collin and Isabel wanted to make him a tool belt card. I got the cutfile from this site:

My FIL is from Texas, so Collin and Belle thought a cowboy card would be nice. LOL I found this cute boot cut for SCAL (sorry, I don't remember where I got it).

I *think* I might actually get to create something today. LOL Although as I am typing this, my kids have interrupted me at least 3 times, so we shall see.

What have YOU been creating lately?
