Playing with my Minc

I've been experimenting with my Anna Griffin Minc. I will show what all I did down below over at First Christian Church last Saturday. 
First I wanted to see if Heidi Swapps products would work in my machine. Her prepared tags did work. They did!!
Second I tried Deco Art Foil and another foil to see if they would adhere, since they were not from AG.  They did!
Last I tried the copier tip I had heard about. I made a copy of something and then ran it thru my Minc. It worked!!
Here's what I played with.
I forgot to mention, I did experiment with combining foils. Came out cool. Thanks for looking and Happy Scrappn!

I'm using some of my favorite collection from 7 Dots : Wonderland.

Below are some of the images from this collection:

I might use some other collections but we will see. 
Have a great day.

News News News

Happy to report I have a new job. I think this one might stick.

I am so blessed that it is close to home and seems like it might be a lot less stress than some previous jobs I've held in the past year. No more selling!!! I don't care if you have Uverse or want a new car. hahahahahah

Here's to a new beginning. With less stress, and having my weekends back I'm starting to feel the stirrings of some creative juices. Happy dance.

Hooray. I've been watching more videos and experimenting with my Cricut Explore. Boy has that been a hassle! 

My new job is at Oaklawn United Methodist Church. I am their Administrative Secretary, the only one. I'll try not to let that overwhelm me. :) I do have previous church experience and worked there for 8 years.

I'm still grieving my mom and can still burst into tears at the thought of her but I try to hold onto happy memories and think of what she would say. I had a dream recently of her. It was an unusual one for me... she was looking at me and it was if she was laying in a field of purple flowers with her head turned my way. The sun was shining and she had this glow about her. She was smiling at me. It felt peaceful. Purple was my mom's favorite color. I'll just take that picture and think of her at rest, at peace and happy.

Thanks for stopping by and pretty soon... I'll be...

Happy Scrappn!

Ten New Favorite Chipboard Projects

I sure love chipboard. I've had the pleasure of sampling from many different companies.

I love putting them somewhere in the project!!

I love painting the chipboard and seeing what it evolves into.

Preparing for the Holidays

It's been a year since my Mom's passing... and we are once again preparing for the holidays.

So what have you done when a loved one is gone and you had to prepare for the holidays.

I think we are a little stronger this year. Would love to hear your stories.

Here's to a even stronger more creative year.

Happy Scrappn!
