Make 5 card class February 26, 2008


This is a set of 5 cards I made at a card making class at our local scrap book store called Roberts Crafts in Provo, Utah. The teacher, Isabell, is an awesome teacher. She teaches a card class once a month. These cards are made with Basic Grey Two scoops paper and embellished with ribbon, Bazzill Bling flower, brads and inked with Pastel Lime Color Box liquid chalk. We also used a stamp and VersaMark from Tsukineko, Inc. with Pebbles in My Pocket chalks to stamp a design on one card.

Who am I?


My name is Donette. I am addicted to scrapbooking and to the Provo Craft Cricut cutting machines. I am actively involved in the Cricut message board (www.cricut.com).
I am the proud mother of 4 boys ages 15 to 7. I also have 2 beautiful step daughters ages 12 and 10. My husband and children also are involved in scrapbooking but are not addicted like me.
I am married to a wonderful husband, Tom. I met Tom while I was completing my masters degree at Idaho State University in Deaf Education. My husband is deaf.
I am a stay at home mother and care provider to my parents whose health is failing. I feel it is important to be at home to care for them than to be in the workforce at this time in my life. Thank heavens my husband is able to support us.
