Beautiful for card making, scrapbooking and other craft uses

After having a foot of snow two weeks ago we finally had a marvelous weekend – just in time for the outdoor wedding of a very special young couple that are dear friends from our church.  It was a magnificent day for them and we were so excited to be a part of their lives and to be a part of helping them as a married couple in the years ahead.  Congratulations Andrew and Monica!

“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!”  One of my favorite verses and one I try to meditate on frequently – whether the day is beautiful like today, or stormy, it’s a day that God has given me to rejoice and delight in.  When I greet the storms with rejoicing in the Lord they pass more easily and disturb me less.  When I greet the beautiful days with gratitude in my heart they are all the more enhanced!  Everything goes better in my life when I rejoice in my Lord!  Have a great Spring day.

Social Marketing 101 – Getting Past the Fear

I took a great class yesterday from Constant Contact (the people I’ve been paying to host my 5,000+ name mailing list for 3 months, but have never sent out an email to yet!!!)  Am I lame or what?!  I’m not sure what the hold up has been, but I’m determined to get past it.   My darling friend, Karla Dornacher has even agreed to hold my hand through the process so I’m going to take the plunge… very soon…

The conference was actually 2 classes, Social Marketing was the morning topic and Email Marketing the second.  Does the word “marketing” scare you?  It isn’t my favorite word either, but I realized that if you take the word “marketing” out – it’s really about connecting, I hate to “market” but I LOVE to connect.  What’s not to love about connecting with people who share your likes and passions.  Connecting with people that enjoy what you do and vice-versa.  When I started to think of it in those terms it immediately became much less scary to me.

After listening to Kelly Flint – Constant Contact’s LA Regional Development Director give the presentation, I did a lot of thinking about what I have and haven’t done in the past.  She is delightfully hilarious by the way, if you get a chance to go to any seminar she’s teaching do it.  You can find her Facebook page by clicking on her name, it’s a live link.  Kelly is a wealth of ideas and information and I’ll share bits and pieces of her tips via my twitter feed in the next few weeks.  If you haven’t connected with me there it’s TWITTER @audreyjeanne.

Kelly shared a lot of real life stories.  While listening to them, it dawned on me, I don’t believe I have ever told anyone that reads my blog that I HAVE a Facebook Page, much less invited you to come visit.  I did say I’m at the 101 course level.  You can find it here: facebook.com/audrey.jeannes.expressions

I enjoy Facebook because it’s so interactive – much more so than a blog.  I would love to dialog with you.  I would LOVE to hear about your passions.  What arts and crafts are you into?  What do you want to learn more about?  What are you making and selling or just making to give away?

Do you have friends that love to create with digital art?  Are they professional crafters that love to find new things to make, new art that they can use for selling at craft shows?  Do you have friends that scour the net for the next hot craft and would love to share what they find?  I’d love for you to invite them to come connect with us.  I’d love to see what people are doing in their creative spaces and try to encourage you to bring more creativity and beauty into your life.  AND I’d love to have you come and post those kinds of things on my Facebook page so we can all go check them out.

Now, if I can figure out how to post a “find me on facebook and twitter button”, I’m in business…  Oh Cheryl, are you out there?!  (she’s my favorite geek helper!)

On Create & Craft TV in Europe, New Paper Crafting Kit debuts

New from Design Objectives, digital scrapbooking collection "Jade Treasures"

One of 80 papers in the collectionOn May 4th, 2010, the European Create & Craft TV show will be featuring a brand new collection of art for paper crafting called, “Jade Treasures.”  It will be their “Pick of the Day” set.  You can view the show May 4th, 2010 on this link: http://www.createandcraft.tv/

I will be trying to find out information as to whether this product can ship to the US and how much if it can.  I’ve been told there shouldn’t be any reason that it can’t ship here, but do not know what the costs might be.

This is a HUGE paper crafting product set.  There are wonderful papers in two different sizes, frames, icons, tags and literally anything you can think of that will make card making and scrap booking fun and easy.  I have yet to see exactly what is in the kit, but will let you know as soon as I do!  There will eventually be a 2 disk digital scrapbooking set released as well.

Design Objectives is the largest manufacturer of scrapbooking and card making products in the United Kingdom.  The new products are not yet up on their website:  www.designobjectives.com but will be soon.

I used this artwork to scrapbook my daughter’s wedding in September.  You can also see a range of Wedding Invitation products created from this art collection for those of you in the US.  LINK TO WEDDING INVITATION and LINK to AQUA/BLUE WEDDING INVITATION SELECTIONS (the “Fleur di Lys Damask” items shown on these pages are not from the “Jade Treasures” collection).

The partnership with Design Objectives is a growing one.  They are a FABULOUSLY creative company with amazing resources and ideas.  They are great fun to work with.  We have a Christmas collection of products releasing soon and look for more as they are developed.  I’ll keep you posted.

If there are any stores that carry their products on line and will carry my line, please let me know and I’ll be happy to make referrals to you!

Windows on Christmas, Digital Clip Art Kit

LINK TO KIT IN STORE HERE I had a few extra minutes before I run out the door, so I thought I would upload another Christmas kit.  This one is one of my all-time favorites.  Created out of my memories of Christmas as a child the art in this is particularly warm and wonderful.

There are several pre-made card fronts included.  The  art itself was created specifically with card crafting in mind.  I’ve really enjoyed seeing the delightful Christmas cards that many of you ladies have made out of this kit since it was released at The Daisie Company last Christmas.  I’m always so excited and amazed to see your creativity!

The kit, along with all my other Christmas or Winter kits will be on sale for 20% off until December 15th, so grab it quick!

Again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I’ll see you in December!

There are very delicate and detailed scroll work accents, hand lettered, hand-painted text, beautifully detailed holly sprigs in various shapes that work together very well to round corners and make frames with.  I’ve created some delightful “ornament” charms that can be printed on cardstock and placed back to back with your trims to make sweet little ornaments to adorn your hand made cards for Christmas.  These ornaments were first produced in gold accented orcelain by a manufacturer a few years ago.

I’ve been working with this kit today on two additional kits, an “Instant Scrapbook” set and a greeting card and envelope set.  It’s very, very easy to work with and almost anything you do with it will look great!
