I found the coolest chandelier for the Diva Room! It was wicker hats and I repainted them shades of pink. The gals on facebook said they need polka dots on them so I will work on that. I cannot wait to see it hung! Want one? Check They have floor lamps too.


Hello! This is Veronica Rosman, one of the instructors here at Precious Treasures Scrapbook Boutique in Fremont, Nebraska. I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be teaching several levels of Cricut classes at the store coming up in the next few weeks. Here is the schedule:

Thursday, Sept. 24 -- Advanced Cricut, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. That's Tonight!
My only night class this month! This is the class for all you who have cut hundreds of letters, and maybe a few shapes, and want to learn more so you can get your money worth out of the machine. Cost is $20, includes supplies. Bring your machine and a mat. I will teach you:
--Learn how to use scrap paper effectively
--Practice making titles
--Learn how to make cards and envelopes on the Cricut machine
--Learn and practice more detailed layering techniques using cartridges including Paper Dolls and the Disney carts.
--Experiment with alternative materials on the Cricut machine, such as chipboard and vinyl.
--Try out accessories such as the Cricut markers
--Explore shading techniques to make images seem more real.

Saturday, Oct. 3 -- Cricut Cardmakers, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Come learn how to use your Cricut machine, and its amazing functions, to make cards for many occasions, including the upcoming holidays. We will explore the Wild Card cartridge, so if this one has you stumped then you need to be here. Cost is $20, includes all supplies.

Saturday, Oct. 3 -- Cricut Club, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Calling all Cricut owners! Come join other Cricuteers to share ideas, show off your work and try out cartridges you’ve seen but weren’t sure you wanted to buy. Bring your machine, your mat, your three favorite cartridges and a list of cartridges that you've always wanted to try but weren't ready to buy. Also, I will highlight one cartridge each month -- this month it is Paper Doll Dress Up -- don't judge this one by the box, come find out useful this cartridge is! We will do a quick make-n-take, too. Registration not required. Cost is $5, which covers supplies and prizes!

To register for the classes, please call the store and sign up. If you have any questions, please email me at You can see pictures of my work at

Have a great week! ~ Veronica Rosman

I made a trip to Kansas City this weekend just for a much needed break and had a wonderful time. Liz watched the kids and they went to the pumpkin patch and had a blast. I slept in today till 10:30 today and got up went to Starbucks then to the open air market which was a wonderful day!

I love going to the Chick Market n 180th and pacific as you never know what goodies you will find. I found this little stand of drawers and redid it to match the store. I put all the Sesame Street and Muppets Jolee's in it as we have sooooo... many. I have been trying to find more ways to make things easier to find a the store and clearning the racks where the stairs are going to go. We are opening up the basement for another 2500 square feet of space and I can't wait!!!

Just spray painted and die cut sign vinyl on the accucut machine and the knobs are still drying, I painted round knobs white.

This is sign I made for under the paper towel holder in the bathroom. LOL

My Internet has been down at home for over a week now and finally COX is suppose to come tomorrow night to fix it. If you have been emailing us it also has been bouncing so please retry after Thursday. It has been such a pain and I have called them every day just t0 get the run around after I finally get to a real person. LOL (doesn't that irritate you?)

We have been so busy at the store putting away all the new stuff that is coming in daily from CHA and having so many classes going on at the store that it is always a hopping, fun place. We love the new location and the coziness of it.

LOL The kids are moved into the basement of my house now and I lost my crop room and have to work on turning another one into a crop room. I have not gotten moved back to Elkhorn yet but should be by October. Kaela (my new daughter in law)has been helping me out at the store and does a wonderful job. She is such a sweetheart. We have been working hard to get things arranged so we can make room to get the stairs done to make another level of the store as we need the room.

We can turn groups of photo's in 12x12 photo collages. These start at $10.00 each. You choose matte or glossy finish. We can do different layouts depending on the number of photo's. You can email photo's to or drop them off at store on CD.


When taking photo's think of things around that you would want as your scrapbook paper. For instance for the kids wedding I went the day before at the same time of day and took background shots and we can print them to 12x12 paper at the store. Remember they have to be full size files if you are emailing them to us to print for you or put them on CD's and drop off at the store. They are only $4.99 and are a high quality photograph.

Quick graduation, baby, wedding albums? Blow your photos up to 12x12 size for one side of a 12x12 layout and then make a scrapbook page for the other side.

Another hint, use background photos for cutting in your Cricut.

These are close ups of Kaela's wedding dress to use for scrapbook paper

Photo's I took of Liz for her senior book
