January Card Class (2014)

In this class we will be stamping 5 cards with envelopes. They will be birthday, get well, thinking of you, and thank you.


You might think this one is a little "lovey-dovey" looking, but it actually says
 "Thank you from the bottom of my heart" inside.


I love this Memory Box die, could work for almost any occasion... 
Thats why I made it a Thinking of You card.


This one didn't photograph well, but its very colorful for a get well wish.
This one is a new Taylored Expression stamp and die combo set.


Penny Black Stamps just came out with some pretty dies. 
This flower die is another one that could be an all-occasion.


Another favorite of mine is the Paper Smooches stamps & die combo sets.
The fish tank gets some gloss, and the back even says "Made from Scratch" which is perfect on this kitty card.

Halloween Treat


If your looking for a quick and easy Halloween gift try using the clear pails.
Decorate them with rub-ons or cute paper, and tie a few ribbons on the handle.
I filled this one with a single serving size of caramel, an apple, and a few caramel creme candies.
These would make great gifts for teachers, co-workers, neighbors, friends, etc.

Waterfall for Fall

Remember this card?
Its the waterfall card we made in class a few months ago.



Well I was playing around with other Doodlebug Doodlepop embellishments and made the exact card but with the Happy Harvest line from Doodlebug.



If you didnt come to the class and learn how to construct these types of cards, just go to YouTube... there are plenty of videos you can watch.
I have other fall and Halloween Doodlepops that would be cute for this card.
