Matchbox Shrine Magnet Workshop

Happy 4th of July Weekend!
Yesterday I took my daughter and her friend with me and we went to a workshop! 
We made Matchbox Shrine Magnets at Chica Femme Crafts Studio in Irwindale, Ca. 
I had been wanting to make some of these magnets for a while now.
I finally got to play... 
It was a fun day and well worth the drive!
I look forward to taking more of Violet's workshops.

Mother's Day Project

Hola amigas! Just wanted to share this awesome class with you all. I decided to take an online class over at I've never done any hybrid scrapbooking, but this class yelled out to me! I absolutely love the "Gabrielle" line by Bo Bunny. This class uses all of the gorgeous papers in this line... it's vintage and it's fabulous! It's a self-paced class and you can still sign up. I'll post some pics when I am all done with my projects. The coolest part about this class, is that you can resize and print the pages however many times you'd like! You get the pages in digital format! What are you making for your Mom, Grandma, Sister, Best Friend, Daughter, etc. ?

Sweet 16 Centerpieces

Hello there my fellow Crafty Amigas! Just wanted to share these centerpieces that I made for a Sweet 16 Party. I also made matching invitations and a banner. There wasn't a specific theme. All I was told was that her favorite colors were purple and lime green. I decided to use butterflies and flowers to embellish with. I really like using terra cotta pots for centerpieces! These were really quick and easy to make. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Adios for now!
