Spring Fling — Marjorie Towers

Spring Fling

Spring Fling!

April 27, 2014

in Creating, Spring Fling

It was another awesome event at Creating Lasting Memories.  Gotta love these teachers who were such good sports about wearing the bunny ears! I think they secretly liked them.

First up, Chris, getting fitted for her ears by her sister Kathy. Her card featured Viva Decor 3D shimmery stamp paint and a set of clear stamps by Penny Black.

This next card was designed by Cathy. It features a wooden stamp by Northwoods. Those bunnies look good enough to eat!

The third card we made also used the Penny Black clear stamp set. This one was designed by Jill.

Carole’s card was a fun birthday zoo card with an accordion fold.

Candice had us making art boards again.  I LOVE them!

Loye made a card with a unique fold using the Memory Box dahlia die.

Tricia had us all making tags using the new Tim Holtz framework dies (one of my favorite products from CHA 2014).

And last but not least is this fun card by Sonja.  This technique is a great way to use up your scraps.  Watch for Sonja to repeat this card at a Wednesday Make n Take in May.

It was fun to see all the different cards that were created from this one idea:

A big thank you to all my super talented teachers!

It was a great day.  So glad you could all come and play!



We had another fun day at the store on Saturday, April, 13, flinging into spring.  Wanted to share some pictures and the cards we made.

Doesn’t this just LOOK like spring?

Here’s the first card I made.  This one was taught by Chris Liles and uses the new Spellbinder Fancy Lattice die :

And here is a picture of our birthday girl (Chris’ birthday was the next day) with her sister:

The next card I made was taught by Cathy Verzi.  It uses a stamp by Inky Antics that we colored with Copic markers and adorned with Candi brads:

Candice taught us all how to make a Master Board.  This was a super fun technique.  I definitely want to make more of these. And here is the card we made using our “board”:

candice card

Sonja had a unique fold card too, with another stamp from Inky Antics:

sonja card

And here is a picture of Candice and Sonja showing off a couple of cards they made:

The seventh card we made was a tag designed by Trisha Easley which used the new Tim Holtz Distress Paints for the background.  This was very popular and Trisha showed us how to get a  fabulous look with ease:

It’s official.  We know how to have fun at Creating Lasting Memories.  Our first Spring Fling on Saturday was 7 hours of non-stop card making excitement.  We made seven birthday cards and now have a nice supply (and absolutely NO excuse for not sending a card full of wishes).

The teachers were all good sports and wore these fun chef hats & aprons we acquired at CHA.  Check out Shari in this photo:


There was lots of good food to eat and plenty of chocolate. I don’t think they minded the hourly prize drawings either!

It was a great time for young and old alike.  Here’s Dottie with her granddaughter Jenn who was visiting from California.  What a treat to get to know her better.


I just want to say a special word of thanks to all 6 of my fabulous teachers: Shari Townley, Marti Arrell, Allene Fewell, Loye Rich, Chris Liles, and Bonnie Bremer.  You guys are wonderful, creative and so supportive.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

Watch for posts of their very creative cards.  I’ll try to give you some instructions on how they were made, similar to what I did after World Card Making Day.

Have a great week and be sure to take some time for ART.
