Mega Meet Goodies....

Hey there, hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.  Thought I'd pop in with some pictures of the cards I made on Thursday while at the Mega Meet in Novi Michigan.  My friend Allison and I had a great time and I got to see Tim Holtz and get my stamp sets and Ink tool autographed.  We just wished we had more time to go, maybe next year.

These items are from my Heartfelt Creations card classes.  I love this company and enjoy a class or two they offer every year....I took 2 card making classes this year so I can stock up my dwindling card stash.

This is the first card in the second can't see it very well, but there are acetate "windows" which are slightly open. We used variegated flower soft on the trees, green and autumn colored glitter on the flowers, grass and pathway.  I never would have though to color with glitter, always used this was my "new" technique that I learned.

Next we have a feminine lacy gatefold card.  I really love the velum embossed flower.  I added some cotton candy stickles and a queen and company flower shaped Goosebumps to the center of the flower.

This step card was really quick and looks quite elegant, the photo doesn't do it justice.  Lots of sparkly glitter on the butterfly, flowers and leaves.

This was the first card we made in the other class, we learned how to ink, shape and embellish the flowers and leaves.

 Below is a close up of the "shattered glass" embellishment on the flowers.

This flowerpot card was a big hit in the class...I decided to use some "Bling" for the flower centers after the air conditioning flipped my scratch paper full of glitter all down the front of could say I had quite the "sparkling" personality the rest of the day...

Here's a pic with the gift card out of the pot...I left the stamping off so I can use sentiments appropriate for the occasion when I give it...

This card was a very quick yet elegant card.  The class ran a little long so I had to assemble the rest at home...I thought the swirls needed a little pen work and some pearls...

I also took a PK Glitz class where I made 2 tags, since the floral and leaves were acetate and glitter, I waited until I got home to assemble them with liquid glass, they are still a little damp so I'll get them photographed later.

I really wanted to take the PK Glitz vintage hues class which made "vintage looking" glittered cards with acetates.  I double booked myself so that I could get the kit for that class to work on at home, but haven't had time to get to it yet. 

The other class I took was the Queen and Company Trunk Show....oh my!!!  My mouth was watering at all that bling.  This is the first year I took that class but it won't be the last!!!  I think I'll add this class to my list of MUST HAVE classes along with the Heartfelt Creations classes.

Thanks for stopping by...



  1. I also took the class where we made the flower pot. That air was something else! I had another class in there with a lot of glitter and more ended up on me than on my projects! lol

    1. I must say I had a "sparkling" personality when I left those classes


  2. What Die or Cut file did you use to make the half lace on the feminine lacy gate fold card with the velum flower? The card is lovely. But love that lace!
