Card Buffet Class

This au chocolat birthday card is "CASED" from this talented stamper:

Saturday May 19th 10 am or
Tuesday May 22nd 7:30 pm

Card Buffet Stamp Class
Dads, Grads, Babies, and Brides and by special request...birthdays
We all know them, so this year, instead of buying them a card (at the last minute most likely!) for their special day, come create a hand made card that will mean so much more! Choose how many of each theme you'd like to make. Minimum total is 10 cards.

Cost: $16 (For the first 10 cards. Each additional card is $1.50) Please indicate total number of each card you would like to make. (In other words, you could make 10 birthday cards if you wanted, or 2 of each theme, you choose from the "buffet"!)

Classes fill up quickly, so call or email to reserve your seat. Can't make the date, don't live in Colorado? Ask me about long-distance options. Stamp classes will be held at my home. No refunds on cancellations. If you sign up for class and are unable to attend, I will gladly stamp and assemble your projects for an additional fee.

Name Frames

These name frames were created by our YW leaders for the girls' birthdays this year. Before they are presented to the girls, we add handwritten words around the border using adjectives submitted by their peers describing qualties they admire in that girl. Each leader worked on one name and took about 2 hours to complete! We've done about 10 and have another 15 to do over the next several months.

They are mounted on tagboard leftover from packs of designer series paper from Stampin' Up! A variety of alphabets were used--some SU! and some foam type. Also, most of the biggest letters on each name are from Stampin' Up! chipboard. You can't tell from the photos very well, but there are eyelets in the top corners with a ribbon attached so they can be hung on a wall.

Spring Notecard

I rarely get time to stamp something during the day, but thanks to naptime for baby, and Cinderella for my 3 year old, I was able to hurry and make this little notecard. I pretty much copied it from one of the samples displayed on the Stampin' Up! Cruise. I haven't been able to earn the cruise yet, but my upline did and sent us some pictures of the samples. I didn't have the same stamps, so I substituted with Sweet Shapes. Ink and Paper colors are So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, and Rose Red. Dotted background stamp was also used on the Certainly Celery portion. Copyright Stampin' Up! 1990-2007

A blog is born

I wasn't too sure about this whole blogging thing...but after spending lots of time looking at so many other blogs, I thought it was time to start my own. I don't have much "original" creative talent, but I think I am pretty good at finding the good stuff and copying it. This will at least give my friends and customers a place to view projects and hopefully get inspiration as well. My goal is to post a few new ideas a week.

My mom told me once that I should charge more for my stamp classes since they often turn into a therapy session for everyone who's there. But really, it's therapy for me. So here it is...stamping therapy for me and you.
