Welcome to my "The Angel Company" Blog

I am an independent demonstrator for The Angel Company. TAC carries a wonderful variety of rubber stamps and our own scrapbook papers. You can also purchase inks, chalks, tools, etc.
I am located in the Kansas City KS area and I also have a home on the Lake of the Ozarks in Warsaw MO. I would love to have you host a FunShop to learn a new stamping or card making technique or style. Have a few friends in and have some crafting fun. Hostesses can earn free and half priced items. I can also take orders if you do not wish to have a FunShop.

Keeping Warm with Fur

The challenges are getting little more participation each time. First 2 then 4 then 7. Can we double (or close to it) the number of submissions again this challenge?? Spread the word to fellow papercrafters!
Challenge #3 Winner is Vicki!! Send your address to mssquared812 at hotmail dot com. You have won an assortment of sticky embellishments: stickers, borders, etc.

Two weeks seems to be working a little better than every week. The new challenge is "Keeping Warm with Fur". On those cold winter days wouldn't it be nice to snuggle in a nice warm fur coat?? (Real or synthetic). For this challenge you must use an image of an animal with fur (cat, dog, bear, etc).



  • Images: Furry Friends from The Angel Company (grey, red and brown Copic markers)
  • Yellow cardstock
  • Designer paper from stash (no indication as to company)
  • Small mirror: tree house studio
  • Crystals: from stash (various colors)
  • Border sticker - dark blue
I am trying to use more of my stash and buy less this year. I have enough (except maybe adhesives and ink for the Copics) to last a couple of years. As a result I am getting into supplies that are no longer in their original packaging so I cannot always identify the brands. 

The prize this week is a package of Artist Trading Cards. These are fun to trade or to use on cards and scrapbook pages. They can also be used to make "memory game" cards for the preschoolers in your life. 
This is a 2 week challenge (a little more manageable for me) so all creations need to be in by 6 a.m. on Tuesday, January 18, 2011. Good luck and share your talents!
