Card Buffet (2016)

 I am going to try a different style of card class that I haven't done in about 12 years...
It's called a Card Buffet.

It's called a buffet because you can pick and choose the cards you would like to make
and the amount of the cards you would like to make.

You can make 1 of each, 
or make multiples of one and none of another... your choice!

The cards are simple enough to do on your own 
without a lot of instruction, so you can move from station to station
at your own speed.
Many of the pieces will be die cut for you already.

There will be a fall watercolor card for Thanksgiving.

 The snail card is using Copic markers. If you have not tried them yet, this card
would be a perfect start.

Everyone tells me they struggle coming up with cards for men.
 This one could be for anyone but would work great as a guy card.

The panda and crab cards are fun critter cards using some embossing and 
die cutting.  The crab card says "Sandy toes and salty kisses" so you could 
use it for many occasions.

The flowers on the Celebrate card use an old technique you may 
know but I think is a clever way to get the ombre effect for the flower colors.

I will have other colors besides pink so you can make different cards.

The cost for the class will depend on how many cards you make.
1 card is $3.00 but if you make multiples of a certain card the
price goes down to $2.50 each.

adhesive runner, foam pop dots, scor-tape (both sizes if you have it), scissors,
small flat glue dots, glue pen, quickstik (if you own one), Tombow green glue.
I sell the supplies you will need.
 If you dont have something, just let me know I will save it for you.

Free Stickles! (2016)

I have some super cool Stickles packs to give away this 
coming week!

These 3 packs make a great stocking stuffer gift for a crafty friend...
or just to keep for yourself.

These contain colors I have never carried in the store before.

There is a Christmas mix of Joyful, Tidings, and Festive.
Also, a winter mix of Glisten, Frozen, and Wonderland.
Both are very pretty!

You can choose one of these packs free with any purchase of at least $25.00.
That's a savings of $6.60.

The free Stickles will be available on 
Thursday, Oct. 13th through Saturday, Oct. 15th.
(while supplies last)

Still time...

There is still plenty of time to make your Halloween cards.
I have some samples posted below, and there are all kinds of 
stamps and dies still available.

Stop in and see what is new!

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)
