Cocoa & a card !

I have done this event for a few years now and its always a popular one.

Stop by for a free cup of hot cocoa and make one or both cards shown below.

This one is a 6x6 sized pocket card that will hold giftcards and packs of cocoa inside.
Nice little gift for a neighbor, friend, or coworker.
This card is $2.00 to make and I will have a few extras to sell as kits if you needed more.
(while supplies last)

This wreath card is also a gift card holder.  These are brand new dies and stamps that just recently became available.  This card is $3.00 to make.
At the moment, the wreath dies are on backorder but should be back in stock fairly soon!

Make & take dates:
Thursday, December 13th (12:30 - 6:30)
Friday, December 14th (12:30 - 6:30)

New Scrapbook Pages

I rarely get the time to scrapbook unless I am at the crops, but I really needed to update some of the pages I had hanging on the walls around here.

I love this BoBunny line for little boys, super cute colors!
I've been trying to better organize my scrapbooks at home, so I wanted to take home some of the pages on the store's walls that had the kids pictures in them.  
I re-scrapped this baby page because the other one had some baby pics of Tyler that I wanted to put in his book.
Cant get enough of Doodlebug paper... so sweet!

...and 1 more

I changed up the colors 1 more time to alter my Christmas cards from the original version.

This one was done with cranberrys and browns with a bit of glitter.

Not just for Christmas...

We used a stamp in the recent Christmas card classes that everyone really loved.
Here is the card we made in the jade & lill pond greens...

The card above has glitter on the trees (hard to see in the photo) to look like fallen snow.

The best thing about this stamp is that it doesnt need to be used just for Christmas.
I changed up the colors to navy & baby blue to make a birthday card...

This time I left off the glitter in case the persons birthday wasn't in the winter.

Batter Up!

My favorite little guy is having his 2nd birthday.  The party was baseball themed, so I made him a special card for his big day.

I love My Favorite Things dies so I used:

By The Letters alphabet dies
By The Numbers dies
and Traditional Tag Stax (tag dies that layer each other).

New Christmas dies from My Favorite Things!

My Favorite Things has come out with some great stamps and dies this month... love them all!

I grabbed a few images from the MFT blog because the girls over there do fabulous work and I havent had a chance to even open mine yet!

I've been waiting for a nice wreath die for a long time, this one is perfect if you layer two to give it some dimension.

Here is the poinsettia up close.

This card shows the gift card pocket maker (love!)  and the stamp set that coordinates.

Anyone who has a problem with bows should check out the Dainty Bow dies, makes it look like you really ties the paper bows!

Last call for Fall!

Thanksgiving is fastly approaching but there is still plenty of time to make fall themed cards.

I love autumn leaves, and this Penny Black clear stamp set is a great "2 step" style.   There are two different stamps that make up one image so you can use multiple colors to create one image.

The rest of the cards...

Christmas card classes start tonight and I almost forgot to upload the rest of the cards we are making...

You cant tell from the picture, but the "Merry" card has glossy glaze on the light bulbs to make them look shiny.

A nice and simple kraft colored embossed card, just add a few stamps and a sparkly gem and your done.

Another one you cant see in the photo, but we used diamond and red Stickles for the reindeer nose and santa hat.

This one uses all MFT dies to make the front of the card.

In this class you will be stamping 8 different cards with envelopes.  I have pictures of 4 of them now and will post the other 4 soon.

October card class

This month's card class has a little autumn in it, but still an all-occasion class.

The card above is made with Christmas stamps, but by changing the ink and using fall colored gems it doesnt have to be just for Christmas... making your stamps a little more versitile.

This card is made by heat embossing the flowers.
It is a sympathy card, but if you choose you can leave it blank and stamp another greeting at a later time.  It almost works for any occasion.

This Halloween card is made with brand new MFT stamps that have matching pumpkin dies.
The owl is also a new release die.

Wednesday, October 10th @ 1 pm. (full)
Thursday, October 11th @ 6 pm. (full)
Saturday, October 13th @ 11 am. ( full )
Wednesday, October 17th @ 6 pm. ( 1 spot left)

The class is $17.00 and should be prepaid to hold your spot.  If you pre-pay before your class date the fee is only $15.00.

Embossing powders & supplies

Recently I added some embossing powders to the store selection, after having quite a few people asking for it.
Im really picky with my powders because they are all NOT the same.  I have found that I really like the Stampendous detail powders.
I have them in clear, white, and black right now.
I also have in stock the static pads and Versamark too... necessary "must haves" when heat embossing.

Back to School 2012

Its back to school time so I thought I would do a 6x6 flap book with the school theme.

This book has 12 pages that will be completed and all you will need to do is add photos when you get home.  All the paper will be cut and ready to go!

There are lots of details and also a bunch of pockets and hidden flaps for journaling and photos.
This class is a great way to remember those special memories!  Use it for your kids, grandkids, or even a teacher gift.

 There will be some pieces that need to be cut out so be sure to bring small scissors.


Wednesday, September 12th @ 1 pm.
Thursday, September 13th @ 6 pm.
Wednesday, September 19th @ 6 pm.

If you would like an extra kit for a second child please let me know when you sign up.

New Fall and Halloween Folders

Some of these folders I had in for a short time last year until they ran out, and some are brand new.

 This was a card we made in last year's card class. So cute with the googly eyed spider!
