Hot off the press!!!!

Standard

Just wanted to let you all know that I received my free copy of Stampers Sampler, the Oct.-Nov. issue, which has my artwork published in it. I was so excited when I heard, and wait till I tell you what they chose.

I sent in several of the Colorful Library Pockets and several Marvelous Mosaic Paper Quilts that I will be teaching at Stamping From the Heart in October (see posts below, with class info and pics). At the last minute, I decided to decorate the yellow mailing envelope, cuz you can’t just send a plain old envelope to Stampington, you know.

Yup, you guessed it. They published the envelope!!

I did have fun doing it, from tidbits and morsels out of my scrap box and lots of red ink. I even sewed and stapled. If you want, we can have an envelope class. Just let me know.

Anyhow, look for the mag at Karen’s store.

Love, Jessica

More fun with my Splash, Dab and Wash painting technique that makes colorful one-of-a-kind backgrounds to enhance your art project. Create vibrant library pockets and card inserts with H2O paints, stamps, ephemera, and my scraps–if you wish to delve into the pile. We’ll wrap them up with beautiful fibers. These are perfect for birthday cards, thank you’s, get wells or really any occasion when you need a little something extra.

Hi Card Lovers,

I’m new to this blogging thing–in fact my daughter is walking me through it right now!  BUT, I am taking this challenge on so I can keep YOU, my avid fans, aware of my class schedule.   So, bear with me while I figure this blogging thing out–you are my motivation!  Below is my first image that I put in a blog!

Next month, I have several paper arts classes arranged in the Los Angeles area, so stay tuned.

With my granddaughter, Ariana at her 5th Birthday!
