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:
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.
Thursday, September 1st @ 1 pm.
Saturday, September 3rd @ noon.
Wednesday, September 7th @ 5:30 pm.

The bow below was made with the new "Put a bow on it" die.

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.)

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.
