#GuestDesigner on #LatinaCrafter blog for October

I have the honor of being a guest designer for the month of October over at Latina Crafter Blog. I am so excited to share my creations with you all! Today a short bio and introduction is posted as well as one of my cards.
Let me just tell you how much I love Latina Crafter stamps and dies! I have been sharing them with everyone here in the So Cal area. I especially love the #CoffeeThemed stamps! If you're into veneers and flair, Latina Crafter has a really awesome selection available. Their wooden veneer embellishments are very reasonably priced and the quality is above average. They are not thick like all the rest of the wooden veneer embellishments that are on the market these days.
I hope you will hop on over to the Latina Crafter Storefront to check out all of the bilingual stamps as well as their line of embellishments.
If you're in the So Cal area, I hope that you will find me online and check out one of my upcoming events. I have been hosting monthly #ShopAndCrop events over at the Prima Marketing Inc warehouse in Chino, Ca. I currently have a crop scheduled for Sat, Oct 17th. The price of the crop is $40. The price includes lunch, snacks, refreshments, a goodie bag and raffle prizes. If you'd like more info, please feel free to email me at craftyamiga at aol . com
For the month of November, I am hosting a #CoffeeAndCrafts events there at Prima as well. At my #CoffeeAndCrafts events, we have 3 teachers who will teach a mini-class. The price is $45 and you will make 3 projects. As a bonus for November, we are extending the time of the event until 8 pm. Everyone is welcome to stay to crop once your projects are completed.
Here is my project that is featured today on Latina Crafter blog. I hope you enjoy!!

Hello and welcome to my blog!
Thank you for hopping along today with Latina Crafter!
I am your 5th stop.

I am super excited to share my creation today using one of Latina Crafter's 
August stamp releases - "Coffee & Pretty Things".
I actually had some input on this specific stamp. 
After Latina Crafter released the previous coffee themed stamps, I made a suggestion on this one! 

This is so true for me! I am sure many of you crafty coffee lovers can relate!!
Along with the Latina Crafter stamp, I used Top Dog Dies Coffee Cup and finishers die set along with the stitched oval from MFT Stamps (Die-namics Pierced Oval STAX).

#ACJWM March Stamp Release!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'm excited to share all the new & exciting things going on over at A Creative Journey with Melissa! I'm on the Creative Crew & would like to share my creations with you today. I had the pleasure of working with TWO of the new stamp sets that are being released today... and let me tell you, I really LOVE them both!!
I used the NEW Spring and Summer Holiday Celebrations Stamp Set for these cards... I hope you enjoy them! This stamp set is so versatile, you can use it in many ways! I especially love making cards... I hope these will inspire you to create too! Mother's Day is right around the corner!

I used one of my new favorite dies to create this card. You can find it here: Sizzix Bigz Die Mug Spoon. I also used one of my favorite lines of paper from Authentique.
You can find it here: Authentique Paper Crush.
I loved using Prima Marketing Inc Butterfly Collection to create this card. The colors and images are so pretty! Definitely not my usual color palette choice, but I'm very happy with the results!

I also love making home decor & gift items. The next two projects were made for the Spring/Easter season. I had purchased some wooden pieces a while back, and I thought this one would be perfect for my idea. You can find these & others online here: Handmade Wood Shadow Box Supply.

I'm always thinking out of the box when crafting, so I decided to make these little containers to fill with Easter goodies for an event I have coming up. The sentiment goes perfect on my tag! I painted
peat pots then lined them with coffee filters.

Here are the rest of my creations, these were made using the NEW Weather Related Stamp Set. Like I said before, I LOVE making cards. This stamp set has lots of sentiments that can be put together to make some very cute cards!

Now that you've seen all my creations, are you ready to create on your own? How about a GIVEAWAY? How about a FREE stamp set? Yes, I said GIVEAWAY! We're giving away one of the NEW Spring and Summer Holiday Celebrations stamp sets here on my blog to one lucky commenter! All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment sharing which is YOUR favorite stamp set of the NEW releases. I will choose a random commenter as the winner. You have until 8 pm PST on Fri, March 13th to enter. Winner will be announced on Sat, March 14th on A Creative Journey with Melissa website! Be sure to visit the other Creative Crew member's blogs for more giveaways!!

#ExcitingNews to share!

I'm super excited to share some great news with you all! I am officially a teacher now at Hearts-N-Crafts, etc in Covina, Ca. I was so excited and wanted to share this past Monday. However, I just started working a new 9/80 schedule at work. I had a lot of ambition for the week. But I am going to have to adjust to working that extra hour per day. I am going to love being off an extra day per 2 week schedule. I will be planning classes and designing on that extra day!
If you're local to the area, I hope to see you in one of my future classes. I also plan on attending crops in the future there at Hearts-N-Crafts, etc. I am super excited to be on the team there! The owner, Tee is just awesome! She is very knowledgeable on the Silhouette Cameo. I am looking forward to learning from her! Come by and visit the store if you're ever in the area. She carries a great variety of all the best companies in the industry from Authentique, Prima, My Favorite Things, Heidi Swapp, Lawn Fawn, Avery Elle, Kaisercraft and much more!

#HappyNewYear - My #OLW for #2015

So here we are, the first Friday night of 2015! Amazingly so, here I am... BLOGGING! I thought I'd share my #OLW for 2015! I didn't want to make a list of resolutions that I'd fall behind on or ultimately fail... I thought long and hard about my one little word. I reflected on the past year and was debating between TWO different words... I decided on. . .
So this year, I will embrace my journey and strive to accept all whether it be positive or negative and embrace it... after all, there is much that is out of my control. I would like to grow as a person as I embrace it all! I have many goals this year... I can only hope to achieve them all!
I look forward to seeing you all more this year, whether it be here on my blog, on facebook, instagram or in person! Thank you for being a friend & follower of Crafty Amiga!
