July card class (2016)

I am posting 2 classes in 2 days so I can be a little bit ahead of myself.
Summers are crazy busy so now I am caught up with classes 
for the next 6 weeks!

Some of these summer inspired cards are interactive.


This flamingo card uses the new My Favorite Things die that creates "flip cards".
The above photo is what it it looks like closed, below is how it 
folds up into an easel card.
Love these flamingos!


This wedding card lays flat in the envelope...


Then slides open into a pop-up card!
We will be using the wedding charms for this one, but I also have other 
charm sets you can coordinate with the slide base die.


Queen & Co. has come out with a new style of shaker cards.
I carry several different shapes, but this one works great for summer.
Use it for a July 4th card, graduation, or summer birthday.


The bumble bee card does not have decorative paper in the 
background.
We will be stenciling the flowers!


The inside reads: "Have a bee-utiful day!"
We will also be using the new scalloped dies that 
coordinate with the rectangles we have been 
using in the last couple classes.


On the sunset card we will be making our own watercolor background.
Love how this turned out!

Adhesive runner, scor tape, foam pop dots, scissors, glue pen.

June Watercolor Note Card Class (2016)

In this class we will be stamping 6 note cards with envelopes.

 We will be doing a simple watercolor technique that will 
give you an elegant look.








All 6 cards will be similar in style but just different colors/flowers
so you will have a uniform set  of notes.




You will also have a plastic card case to display them in.


These cases work great if you want to give your cards as a gift.
Just tie a ribbon around the plastic case and done!
Makes a great gift for a friend, co worker, teacher, etc...


Cost:
This class will be $20 for the 6 cards, envelopes, and case.
If you prepay to hold your spot the class fee is only $18.00

Supplies:
Adhesive runner
Thats the least amount of supplies ever!
Scor tape (if you wish).

Class Dates:
I will be keeping the class sizes to 4 per class for this technique.

May Card Class

In this next workshop we will be stamping 5 cards
with envelopes.
There will be various themes for the cards.
We will also be trying some adhesive backed card stock to die cut with,
 it makes adhering your tiny pieces so much easier.


I love the set of dies for this one, it cuts the scallop, the box, and the bow.


 The inside of this shark card reads "cake!"


Thought we might need a guy card for the upcoming Father's Day holiday.
You could also use it for a man's birthday or even a 21st birthday card.


We will be making the beer foam look realistically puffy!


Some new Mama Elephant stamps for a cute birthday card.


The strawberry card says "That was berry sweet of you" on the inside.
I love this new set of rectangle dies I am carrying... 
they have alternating pierced and stitched shapes 
so you can have both on the same card.



Dates:

Wednesday, May 4th @ 5:30 pm(full)
Thursday, May 5th @ 1 pm. (full)
Wednesday, May 11th @ 1 pm. (full)

"Let's Party!" Scrapbook Class

In this class we will be completing a 6x8 
Simple Stories binder album with a birthday theme.
The last 3 classes we did with these books were 
a big hit, and they are so addicting.



This album has 56 pages inside for photos, journaling, and memorabilia.



The book uses a Project Life style of scrapping... but better
because Simple Stories has matching paper and stickers
with their collections.


There are a lot of embellishments we will use to add interest 
and dimension.




The book will have quite a few lift-up spots for
hidden photos and journaling.


There will also be pockets for pull out tags and pages...
lots of surprises.
You wont be disappointed!
