Pimp Out Showcase with Deezy Does It!

If you are looking for the Butterflies Blog Hop, go here!

This week my blog is being showcased in the

Pimp-Out/Showcase Hop!!!
Brought to you by Deezy Does It!

Thanks, Wanda, for inviting me!

This "Weekly" Pimp-Out/Showcase Hop is to gain new followers, as well as bring more traffic to your blog and - at the same time - receive greater exposure.  It is also a great way to meet other bloggers, exchange ideas, get great tips and learn new techniques - all while showing your "art."

Before we begin, there are just a few simple rules to the hop.

1. Follow the Host (first link): 
2. Follow the showcased blogger: Short on Ideas (second link)
3. Link up below using Linky Tools.
4. Visit at least 3 blogs from the linked up list below and leave a comment.  Let them know you came from the Weekly "Pimp-Out/Showcase" Hop and inform them you are a follower so they can return the favor.
~Please remember that if someone from the hop follows you, be sure to return the favor~

Welcome to my Showcase. My name is Camille Short (Short on Ideas) – and I admit to being a craftaholic, as well as a procraftinator! I have been papercrafting for about eight years now! I got my start when my new husband mistook a sarcastic remark about wanting to scrapbook seriously . . . and surprised me with about $300 of crafting goodies for my 50th birthday. The good news was that he was listening – the bad news was I wanted NOTHING to do with crafting! But being newlyweds, I humored him and signed up for some classes . . . OMG! It did not take me long to become addicted! In addition, he never complains about how much time or money I spend on my crafting – since it’s all his fault anyways!

I’m a retired educator who has always enjoyed showing people how to do things. After a move to Arizona from Michigan, I began teaching papercrafting classes at AZ Scrapbooking in Green Valley, Arizona. AZ has a great design team who brings inspiration to all their meetings – after a few years with them, I was inspired to share my talents with others through design teams. I first designed for Hobby Baby (sister company to Globecraft Memories and Piccolo D├ęcor). I am currently designing for The Robin’s Nest – my favorite products being their Fleur Cardstock, Glittered Cardstocks, and Dew Drops!  I recently returned to work full time at Hobby Lobby as Office Manager . . . and when I won’t be bookkeeping, you will be able to find me in the Papercrafting section! 
Since working full time has crimped my crafting time, I didn’t get anything new made for this showcase. But I do want to share a couple of my all-time favorite projects.
My wedding album is still sitting in the bottom of a full closet – perhaps ¼ finished. (Guessing that will never be completed!) However, I was inspired at a CHA Convention to get my favorite wedding photos on the wall. In this project, a 12 x 12 canvas is scrapbooked – embellished with three Globecraft frames at the bottom. (Step-by-step instructions can be found on the post Eyes of Love.)

I enjoy creating cards more than anything else. My cards can be purchased at Luke’s Italian Beef Restaurant and the Medicine Shoppe in Tucson, as well as Fort Wilkins Gift Shop in Copper Harbor, Michigan. These Christmas cards using Robin’s Nest Cardstock are some of my favorites.

When you have some free time on your hands, browse through my blog’s older posts and visit some of my other fun projects!
