Before the Garage Sale...

I just posted some pictures regarding the garage sale I am doing. I spent two days putting together the packages with wood pieces, stamps and others, and guess who helped me very closely to organize everything???

Isn't he cute? Or I mean "Kawaii"???For those that lacks some knowledge in Japanese, kawaii means cute and it is not how its spell the Hawaiian island.

Garage sale

Hi everybody,
Last weekend we had the famous Ever After garage sale. As the opportunity to clear up some of my storage space, I participated and sold lots of unwanted stuff.
I am posting some pictures of my "extra stuff" that is going to be available for sale in case you are interested in buying.
You will need to contact me with your selection or question.

Cards 4 the Troops

Greetings Everyone!!!,
I had a wonderful time last Sunday at Ever After Scrapbooks. We had proposed a double event: Meet the New Instructor/Card 4 the Troops in remembrance of 9/11 (ten Years ago). The idea was to be available with free material to any customer that came in the store and meet them (and vice-verse) and make cards that we can send to soldiers abroad, so these soldiers can use the cards to send back to their beloved ones.
If you have more swaps than you know what to do with it and cards that you are not using, you can stop by Ever After and leave them to me. I will pack them all and send it to a non-profit that take care all the cards to be sent.
Now, here some pics of the cards we made together during our event:

Djana's Card

I hope see your generosity turned into cards.

Box Template

I haven't seen a project as popular as this one...
The stationary set.

A lot of people have asked for me this box template. Instead of sending the file over and over, I decide to add here the instructions. It is much easier for me.
You can make the box any size you want accordingly with your card size. I hope this make sense, because I've done the same box in different sizes. Because I am a teacher, I much prefer that you understand the concept of the project than just copy it. You can use either 12"x12" or 8-1/2"x11" paper size. My yellow set is a 8-1/2"x11" size.
The base of the box is a little bigger than the size of your envelope. The other marks will have two-1" wide at the top, bottom and right side. The left side will have one-1" wide plus the rest of your paper, so we can have the larger flap to embellish.

These are the cutting parts. All four small squares (one in each corner) you will cut until the scored line, but only in one direction. Doesn't matter which one you cut because you will fold to the inside of the box and double-side tape to secure.

That is it folks!!!
Pretty easy and straight forward directions. If you live in San Diego or Orange County, you can come and join me at Ever After Scrapbooks on October 23rd. to a class with this project.
Have fun and thank you for contacting me.

Go Green Crafting - New class series @Ever After Scrapbooks - Wednesday, Sep. 14th and 28th

Hello PessoALL,
Guess what? After just a few meetings Camille, Ever After's owner, figure out that she wanted ME to launch a re-purposing material class. She came up with the name: Go Green Crafting and I am coming up with the know-how of using found materials and my creativity to turn ordinary materials in extraordinary paper craft.

Since this is my "debut" as a official Ever After teacher (during the Summer I thought a kids camp at Ever After) we are offering a special registration condition. If you sign in for one class, you will pay only $20 (regular price $35), but if you sign in for two classes, instead of paying $40 for both, you will pay only $35. Who doesn't like to save some extra cash? More to spend buying all sort of wonderful scrapbook supply. Everyday we receive new items and with the holidays right at our doors, our Go Green Crafting class will be perfect for you to sprue your creativity, learn new techniques and perhaps have some unique gifts done in time for Halloween, Thanks Giving and Christmas.

We will use aluminum cans to create a vase, pencil and candle holders.  You will learn how to transform old and scratched CDs into beautiful photo displays. Juice boxes will become tote bags and the possibilities are endless.

Call Ever After  (760-630-2767) to register. The Go Green Crafting classes will happen every other  Wednesday from 6-8 pm and our first meeting will be on September 14th.

I hope see you there.

Meet the New Instructor and Cards 4 the Troops

Greetings after a dark (yet fun) night.
Yes, we survived after 9 long hours with no electricity. Well, since I came from the Amazon, I wasn't so stressed being without power. I remember when my family and I spent the whole summer vocation in our beach house and sometimes without any electricity, no big deal. More fun time for us, kids, playing with our hands making shadows on the wall or just playing cards around the candle, and it was with that spirit in mind that we spent our evening. Luckily, I didn't need to cook because I had made "caldo verde" or green broth as a literal translation, a yummy Portuguese-soup, the night before and had saved the left over in the freezer. Dinner was saved just heating it up and enjoying the night.

But the reason for this post it is not the power failure we lived yesterday. I would like to invite you all to join me this coming Sunday, yes, 9/11 to make free cards to send to our troops abroad.
Since I am the new team member for Ever After Scrapbooks and just launched some new paper craft classes there, Camille and I thought it would be an excellent idea to have a "meet the new instructor"/community service event.
Ever After is donating some supplies and I will bring stamps, ink pads, punches and so on, so we can make thoughtful cards to send to our soldiers in remembrance of 9/11 attack 10 years ago.
Our cards 4 the troops event will happen from 11 am to 1 pm, just this Sunday. This is a family event, therefore husbands or boyfriends and children are welcome to participate.

I hope see you there!

Lembrancinhas das Vendas do Mes de Agosto e Setembro

Ola meninas,
Se voce eh minha cliente, voce ja sabe que eu adoro mandar umas lembrancinhas junto com a sua encomenda, nao eh mesmo??? Eu adoro fazer os mimos para voces e tambem tenho chance de partilhar o que eu sei consigo.
Para as vendas dos meses de Agosto e Setembro, eu fiz um marcador de livro bem legal usando um dos conjuntos de carimbos novos do Mini Catalogo de Festas.

Como demonstradora, eu posso comprar todos os produtos a serem lancados antes de voces verem, dai eu posso bolar essas coisinhas legais para inspirar voces.
O conjunto eh: It's a Wrap Holidays e voces podem achar na pag. 14...

A lista de material para os marcadores: Love, Halloween e Christmas, respectivamente, eh a seguinte:

Embellishments: Eyelet (metalics - Fora de Linha), Linen Thread Cód.: 104199 - $4.50

Embellishments: Eyelet (Brights - Fora de Linha), Ribbon (not a Stampin' Up! Product.)

Embellishments: Eyelet (Regals - Fora de Linha), Bakers Twine Cherry Cobbler Cód.: 123125 - $2.95

Esse daqui saiu a partir de um acaso...

Eu estava fazendo umas flores vintage e ao inves de limpar meu tapete de espuma com uma toalha de papel, eu peguei um pedaco de card stock branco e acabou imprimindo esse papel rosado lindo!!! Nao joguei fora e dai ontem quando estava fazendo os marcadores eu fiz esses tambem para dar de presente a umas amigas que perderam pessoas que amavam recentemente.
Eu espero que voces tenham gostado da ideia.
