My Morning With Joanne Basile!

I have had a splendid day! This morning, I went to Right at Home Scrapbooking to take another class with the FABULOUS Joanne Basile. I took one of her classes a couple of months ago and had such a good time. I learned quite a few things too, so I couldn't wait for today's class. Miraculously, it didn't! It almost always snows when I sign up to do anything crafty, but this time the weather was great, except for being cold. I thought that I'd share what we made today. All of the Die-namics die cuts and stamps are from My Favorite Things. This first card has My Mind's Eye papers and Joanne was sweet enough to sew the border around the main layer for all of us ahead of time! Didn't I tell you she was FABULOUS!

This card uses papers from The Girl's Paperie. Joanne doesn't mind if we change things up a little bit, so for this card, I used the green polka dotted side of the paper instead of the red brocade side. I LOVE the extra little punch of color.

Here is the last card that we made. This image is so delightful and I even gave this little one blond hair! I'm a brunette so I usually give the little girls that I stamp brown hair unless I know that the card is going to someone blond or a red head. I changed this card up a bit as well. The felt scalloped strip was supposed to go vertically on the left hand side of the card, but then I tried it in the middle of the card horizontally, and well that is where it stayed! I added the button when I got home to go with all of that glorious glitter on the heart.

I hope that you enjoyed your day and were able to have some fun too! Thanks so much for visiting with me! Enjoy the rest of the long weekend...Toodles! :D

These cards are so adorable. I love how you guys did the doily on a small patterned paper. I also love the stitching. You'll have to give me more details on what that paper is. It's really nice. Did you paper piece her tights on that card or is that just coloring. I love it. I also love the houndstooth on the last card. I'll have to look for that paper since I have that set. Stay warm. My hubby tells me it continues to be bitter cold. Here it was 55 and rainy and everyone was complaining of the weather. I guess it's all relative.

It was SO SO fun to see you yesterday, so glad the snow didn't ruin our plans!

Thanks for all your sweet comments, and all your help during class too. You're the greatest!
