Upcoming classes

I will be having 3 upcoming classes. *First is a Stamp Camp where you pay $17.00 and make 6 Christmas projects. A combo of cards and 3-D projects. The day of the class is Nov. 15. Registration deadline is Nov. 3. Here is a sample of the 2 cards we will be making along with one of the projects. I used the new Big Shot die cutting machine for the scalloped edge. It is also using the new Alpine Ribbons Original. Love it!

I just love how this card turned out. Santa looks so happy!
We will also be making this cute container. Not a great picture of it, but the little circle says "A Very Merry Christmas to you". It uses Acetate paper to hold the candy or whatever you want in. I don't have the other projects ready yet, but when I do I'll post them here. If you want to come just let me know!

*The next class I will be having is a Christmas card Stamp-a-stack. We will make 12 cards (3 cards each of 4 different designs) for $15.00. The class will be Nov. 20 from 7-9. Registration deadline is Nov. 10. Here are the cards that we will be making:

*The last class I will be having is a Frame class. We will be making a frame that says "Peace & Joy & Love & Cheer. The cost is $10.00 and the class will be Dec. 9 from 7-8:30. Registration deadline is Dec. 2. I don't have a picture of it yet because someone is borrowing it and I haven't taken a picture of it yet. I will post it when I finally get it.

If you have any questions just email!

Halloween projects

The swap I'm in had some great cards. These are 2 that I just had to share. The first one is by Marissa Hewitt. The card can lay flat to mail, but then it will stand up by itself. I just love the work she did to it. She used Halloween Frights stamp set and Frightful Fence jumbo Wheel.
This bag was made by Chairl Ivie Miller. I love how fun it is and it would be a great way to give some fun Halloween treats to some special people! The stamp set she used was Halloween Frights and Eat, Drink & Be Scary from the holiday mini catalog.

Thank you ladies for some great ideas!

Wow swap cards

I'm in 2 different swaps for mini catalogs. Here are my cards that I did.

I used the same layout as the shaker card from my Cards that Move class. Mr. Twigster was the stamp set from the Holiday Mini. For the snow to make it a shaker card I used the Chunky Sparkles Glitter. Ribbon and cardstock is all Baja Breeze. Love the new Striped ribbon!

Stamp set was Scandinavian Season. I used the new DSP from the holiday mini called Ski Slope. I also used the new Alpine Originals Ribbon for the middle stripe. Absolutely love it! I accented the tree with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Card stock is Chocolate Chip and Old Olive

On this card I used Really Rust with Perfect Plum. Not a combo I would have EVER thought of but Hollieanne gave me the idea and I loved how it turned out. Thanks Hollieanne! The stamp set is Season of Friendship from the holiday mini and the ink is More Mustard, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. The little bird is stamped in Basic Black then cut out and the ribbon is Elegant Eggplant grosgrain.

Cards that move cards

I know the class was about 2 weeks ago, but I still wanted to post the cards that we did. The ladies just loved them.

Slider card closed and then opened to reveal a Birthday message!

This is a wiper card. When you kind of push it closed a message pops up.
I used Inspired by Nature and Upsy Daisy stamp sets, along with the new Top Notz Sizzix die. Card Stock is Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White.

This was there's and my favorite. It's a shaker card. I just loved the simplicity of of. I used Pocket Silhouttes stamp set and everything else is Kiwi Kiss.

All in all we had a great class. Thank you ladies for coming and making it fun.
