More Mojo fun

I just must post more of my Mojo creations. I'm finding that I just love their layouts (for the most part... I skip any that require me to cut a big circle, as I've not any tools to do so!) and create awesome cards when I don't have to think about where to put stuff! I have nothing but a run at the gym planned for this lazy Sunday, so I hope to work through a few more.

Mojo 73
Stamp Sets: Cheep Talk, Trendy Trees
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, So Saffron
DSP: Good Morning Sunshine
Stamp Pads (Classic): Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point
Accessories/Tools: Scallop edge punch, Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Button, Blender Pen

My first time using my new fave set! (Cheep Talk). I know the many discussions out out there about "all the birds" in the new catalog, but I LOVE them. Birds are very hip and in now, and I think nothing says SPRING like a cute bird.

Mojo 72
Stamp Sets: Three Little Words, Best Yet (hostess fall 2008)
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Rose Red, Whisper White
DSP: Raspberry Tart
Stamp Pads (Classic): Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
Accessories/Tools: Scallop edge punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, Kiwi Kiss Button Bouquet

How can you NOT love this Raspberry Tart paper? There isn't a design in it that I don't like, and I'm on my 2nd package of it already!! So bright and cheery... just what a Minnesotan needs in February (after a snow storm, yuck!)

Thanks for looking! I will post more Mojo creations (and upcoming classes/workshops) soon!

Getting my MOJO back

Eep! It's been a long time since I posted, for which I am sorry! I finally got a permanent job at a school, so I've been busy working. I'm not a classroom teacher, but I do get to work with kids. I'm a Teacher Assistant, which means I pull out small groups of kids and work with them on reading and math. It's about 6 hours a day, and just perfect for me now! Hopefully a teaching job will come along next year for me.

Anyway, I actually had Monday and Tuesday off this week, so I used the opportunity to catch up on some Mojo sketches. I hate to toot my own horn, but I love how these cards turned out! Of course, it's probably due to the cute sketches! I'll post a few here and there, not all at once, to keep the blogs short. :)


Stamp Sets: Sweet Little Sentiments, Darling Dots
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Sahara Sand
DSP: Sweet Slumber Specialty
Stamp Pads (Classic): Baja Breeze, Ruby Red
Accessories/Tools: Baja Breeze ribbon, 1 1/4" circle punch

I think it turned out so cute! I plan to send this card to my grandma (which I try to do once a month... even though she has macular degeneration and can't really see the cards, I know she appreciates getting them!)

Thanks for looking! Check back for more MOJO soon!
