Smile...It's Monday!

As wonderful as my intentions are to spend time with you on the weekend, it just did not work out for me to do so this past couple of days.

So last night, while my husband was at his fantasy football draft (Paul is a sports nut...he would prefer that it were 'English football', though), I spent time making this card just for you!
I layered together pieces

from the Classic K Mini Book Kit in the Margo design. I also decided to break out some glitter and I covered the chipboard heart with crystal snow. The vintage background paper is from FooFaLa...I just love their papers.

If you peer into The Open Window this morning, you will see the remnants of this card laying all over my table, as it was quite late when I finished and I haven't cleaned up.

You will also see my planner with lots of post it notes and 'bits n pieces' of workshop instructions. I am working on my schedule for local workshops, but as I do, I think of you dear friends who may not live close enough to make it to a Julie Ranae Play Day. I am putting together $5 mini classes that you will be able to purchase online.


Leave me a comment and let me know! I am working on a second blog site for teaching. You will be able to purchase mini workshop instructions and full workshops with templates...payment would be through PayPal or money order by mail.

I look forward to sharing with you something a little later tonight....see you then!

I wish I could sell tutorials! as a ctmh consultant I'm not allowed :( lol

your card is absolutely amazing!

Julie, this card is fabulous. I think the glitter is a fabulous choice. That is really cool to make money at what you are good at Julie. Am I interested? It depends on the tutorial. But I would love to see my money go to someone I know and want to support. So I say go for it. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

This card is just gorgeous. As far as tutorials... nah... I would probably never pay for one. Not that they aren't worth it, I'm sure they are, but funds are so limited at our house, I don't get to spend a lot on crafting... in fact... a lot of my crafts are "recycled". :) Good luck to you. I know others have their tutorials for sale, and they seem to do very well at it. There is definitely a market out there for that sort of thing.
