September card class (2016)

In September we will continue with a few more pop up cards.
The Autumn card is a 5x5 accordion style card.
We will be using a brand new Lawn Fawn set of stamps and dies.

The card is 5x5 in size but opens up accordion style.
We will also be doing a bit of Copic coloring too.

Last month we did a pop up beach card,
this time we will be a little country.

This card opens up for a pop up fence and lays flat
to be displayed.

We used the flower layering stencil a few classes ago and
it was a huge hit.
We will be making a baby boy and girl card the same way.
These stencils are so fun!

Supplies Needed:
Adhesive runner, foam pop dots, glue pen, scor tape (regular size), and
 scor tape (1/8 inch skinny size).
If you own a Quickstik you may want to bring it.

Class fee is $17.00, if you pre-pay to hold your spot it is $15.00

Wild Things class (2016)

I have a class that isn't my usual, thought we could try something new.
"Where the Wild Things Are" was a favorite book of mine when I was 
very little.  My kids also loved the book too.
When I saw that the paper came out for this
 I really wanted to use it.

We will be using a Graphic 45 black mixed media box 
that has a magnetic closure.
The book is 5x5 in size.

There are 6 black photo mats that we will be decorating.
So back to back there will be 12 decorated pages.

Here are a few of them.

Supplies Needed:
Foam pop dots, glue stick, corner rounder, and fine tipped scissors.
(Just a hint: Creative Memories scissors are too big, you need the Cutterbees type.)

Cost is $13.00 for the class if it is pre-paid.
$16.00 if paid at the time of class.
I would really appreciate if the class was prepaid so I dont end up with extras.
*I can do kits if you cant make it to a class date (if there are enough supplies).

Class Dates:
Wednesday, August 31st @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Thursday, September 1st @ 1 pm. (full)
Saturday, September 3rd @ noon. (full)

August Card Class 2016

Join us for our August card making class.
We will be stamping and die cutting 5 cards with envelopes.
There will be a shaker card, a pop up, a slider, and a watercolor card.

The fairy card is a pretty little birthday shaker.
The birthday card below could be for either a guy or a girl, 
the candle flames are glittered (hard to see in the photo).

Now if you missed the watercolor note card class in June
 we will be using this technique again.
If you did come to that class, then this one will be
one more for your collection.

I really love this card, its so unique to a standard card.
This is a beach pop up card.

The chair actually pops out when you open the card.

The butterfly card is a slider...
slightly different technique from the 
wedding card we did in July's class.

This is how it looks when you slide it open.
The background behind the flowers is glitter paper
(again, hard to tell in the photo.)
