So I am really enjoying making this metal stamped jewelry! It is just too much fun! My husband is right on board and so helpful which is great! For Valentine's day I made a couple more of the keychains - had an order for these for a friend of mine to give to her family with her special message on them. I think these keychains have so many possibilities!

I have been very intrigued by the metal stamped jewelry ever since I went to New Year just over a year ago with a girlfriend. We saw some beautiful jewelry that happened to find it's way into my suitcase...in fact...I do believe I came home with almost one of everything :) That was gorgeous and I loved the idea of giving a gift with a message attached for the recipient. With that in mind I have been looking at metal stamping for a while now and thought I would give it a go. I have been playing around this weekend and I made my husband his valentine gift. It was inspired by my beloved Pinterest...absolutely loved this idea and had to give it a go. There are 4 pennies on this keychain. One for the year he was born (coincidentally that happens to be the same year as I was born...double whammy!), the year we met, the year we got married and the year our daughter was born. Then I handstamped the words "Rockin Years" on the back piece as that was our wedding song. I hope he loves it as much as I do!

The Elemental Workshop on the go is the last kit we will be doing from the Autumn/Winter 2011 catalog...sad because there were some great kits in there...but on to 2012 after this! The Workshop on the Go is a very affordable kit that includes the supplies to do at the minimum a double page layout which is included when you purchase the kit - plus, normally there is enough supplies to do another one or two layouts or a couple of cards. You also get to keep the stamp set that comes with it! You can't beat that!

I have been very busy with the open house launch of the new catalog and playing with all the goodies! I have sent in our first order from the catalog so some ladies have new product on it's way :) This is a card that I made using the new Florentine papers which are GORGEOUS! In fact I am so in love with it that I will be doing this kit first as the Workshop on the Go class!
