There are cute little quotes from the movie Elf.


This one has highlights of shiny silver on some of the pages.

Christmas Card Class 2016

In this year's Christmas card making class 
we will be stamping 6 cards with envelopes.


I always love Christmas cards that have shiny metallic silver and metallic gold.
It's the one time of year you can get away with so much shiny metal.


We will also be doing heat embossing on both of those metallic cards!


We will be making a front stair step card that is 6x6.


Hard to see in the photo but we will be making the tree snow glistened 
with glitter.



The cabin card is on shimmer paper.
Its hard to see in the photo so I tried to get up close .  
Trust me, the shimmer paper is so pretty in person.


There will be a watercolor poinsettia
 because people never get tired of this technique!



The last card is a pretty angel that is also done 
with the shimmer paper with white on silver.


Again, the shimmer is so much prettier in person.


The inside reads a simple "Noel" for an elegant greeting.


Cost:
The workshop is $20.00 but if you prepay to hold your spot 
the cost is only $18.00

Supplies:
You will need an adhesive runner, foam dots or tape, scor tape (skinny works 
best on one of the cards), scissors, glue pen, tombow green cap glue.

Dates:
Thursday, Nov. 17th @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Saturday, Nov. 19th @ noon. (full)
Wednesday, Nov. 23rd @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Wednesday, Nov. 30th @ 1 pm. (full)

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.


Cost:
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.

Supplies:
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.

Class Dates:
Please RSVP to hold your seat
Saturday, Nov. 5th @ noon or 1 pm.  (full)
(come as early as noon but no later than 1 pm.)

Wednesday, Nov. 9th @ 1 or 2pm. (5 spots left)
(come as early as 1 but no later than 2 pm.)

Friday, Nov. 11th @ 4 or 5:30 pm. (5 spots left)
(come as early as 4 pm but not later than 5:30 pm.
