Thanks to all who came to Name frame Workshop

Hi Kansas City Ladies-- I had so much fun at our Ladies Night out last Friday night. Thanks Michelle for having us. It was a long time coming but we all survived summer and are now planning our monthly stamp therapy group.

I had so much fun helping you make your name frames and pondering over the colors but they all turned out soo nice that I was inspired to make another. Here is one that I made for my former manager, now my friend, at work.

Fretz is for Cathy Fretz and Cathy used to be an interior decorator so I am always a little unsure when I make her something personal if it is the right colors etc. She told me that she had mauve pink , beige and green in her house so this is what I came up with. I colored the half pearls along the paper lace strip with my copic markers. I scalloped the edge of the left striped paper with my corner rounder punch and then punched inside each scallop with a small hole punch.

I used my Spellbinders Nestible small scalloped square die for the white letter background. A one inch square punch was used for the coordinating paper inside the scallop square and I used my Olivia alphabet set for my Cuttlebug for the letters. I colored the letters to match the pearls and background paper.

I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin Up Level 3 Hostess set Always, cut them out and covered them with stickles to make them sparkle.

I couldn't wait to give it to her and she loved it. Whew!

Hope you are all enjoying your name frames too. If you forget something that we did don't hesitate to send me an e-mail.

Don't forget on October 10th we are doing a Christmas card as requested by Tina and I am planning a Halloween treat of some kind, still working on that one :)
