A few weeks ago I had a Step-It-Up Cards Class. The ladies who came all enjoyed the cards, and it was fun to see how simply by adding texture (see above sale!), ribbon, or another layer of cardstock can make your projects look amazing!

The first card is a monochromatic card using the Four Feathers stamp set.
Here it is "stepped-up" by adding a textured background, some Burlap Ribbon, and a few Basic Pearls.

This card is made with the Festival of Trees stamp set, Trim the Tree DSP Stack, and Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.
The basic elements on this card are the same, but we added the coordinating Tree Punch, strips of Cherry Cobbler cardstock punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch, a small star punched from Red Glimmer Paper, and accented the tree with dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.
(Did you notice how the tree on the right isn't actually stamped here, but is just the DSP showing through the punched-out space? Pretty clever, huh?)

I have more cards from this class that I'll be posting soon.  But until then...
HAPPY STAMPING!

Winter Wishes Frame Class

Got the winter blues already? Well, how about beating those blues by making an adorable Winter Wishes Frame?
From Millan.Net
Winter Wishes Frame Class - Dec. 9 or 10
Join me for a fun night of crafting when we make this adorable winter frame! You will be able to create this cute project that night and have it ready to hang in your own home or give as a gift!  Finished size is 8"x8".  Cost for class is $25.00 (does not include frame, but I have some available for $5 each if you need one).

I'm offering this class for two nights, so you can choose which one works best for you!  Tuesday, December 9 at 6:30 PM or Wednesday, December 10 at 6:30 PM.  When you register, please let me know which night you prefer.  Please RSVP with your payment by December 4 if you'll be coming.  Space is limited, so don't wait to register.  Plus, the earlier you register, the better for me to have enough supplies on hand for everyone.

That first picture doesn't quite show the "bling" factor going on here.  Maybe you can see this one better...
As always, please bring your own adhesive (including a strong tape like Sticky Strip), scissors, and paper trimmer.  All classes are for adults only.  Any questions? Let me know!

Until next time...
HAPPY STAMPING!

Project Life by Stampin' Up! - Not Just for Memory Keeping

Have you seen any of the Project Life Collections by Stampin' Up!? You really should check them out! If you have bunches of pictures that are sitting in boxes, this system is a quick and adorable way to get them into albums.

Today I have some card samples that were made at the Creative Convention that Ronda Wade hosted in October.  I'm assuming that the card ideas were hers.  They are terrific ideas of how you can use the Project Life by Stampin' Up! products for cards too!

These were made using the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Card Collection found in the Holiday Catalog.  The first couple are terrific for school.  You could make some adorable cards for your kids to give to their teachers.

Then we have a couple for Fall.

Four Feathers

Have you seen all of the wonderful cards and other projects being created with the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating Feathers Framelits Dies?  I was sure I didn't need to have this set -- until I started seeing all of the wonderful projects made with it.
From Millan.Net  From Millan.Net
These cards were made by my friend and downline, Diane Kipp.  She said that she CASEd most of them, so if you're the original creator, please let me know so I can give you proper credit.
This card is so striking with the Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake colors.

Just change the sentiment and this would make a terrific "manly" card, don't you think?

 I love this idea of using the negative space of the Framelits with DSP behind to create these striking feathers.

The blues and browns on this card make it perfect for so many things, don't you think?

Weekly Deals, Fall Fest Card, and Another Frame Class

 
New Weekly Deals have been announced!
 From Millan.Net
Check out this adorable card that my friend Diane made!  It's made with the Fall Fest stamp set and Motley Monsters DSP.
And the clever way it opens...
So cute, wouldn't you agree?
From Millan.Net
And would you believe I'm offering another Fall Frame class? No, this isn't the same class that I offered this week. We'll be making this one:
Isn't this adorable?  The lady who designed it also made one for winter, so I'm sure I'll be offering that class within the next few months.

THIS class is being held Monday, October 27, at 6:30 PM. Cost is $20 (does not include frame).  It is sized to fit into an 8x8" square shadowbox frame. If you're interested in coming, let me know as soon as possible. The class is already half full. If I have enough interest, I may offer it another evening (maybe Wednesday?).

Until next time...

Fall Sampler Class

Last night was our monthly Chocoholic Chicks meeting and for the project we made a Fall Sampler.  The ladies all loved theirs, so I got to thinking, what if I offered this as a class?  Since I already have all of the supplies out (just need to cut the cardstock and DSP), I thought about offering this as a class this Monday, October 20, at 6:30 PM.  I know it's late notice, but if you'd like to make one and could come to class, let me know.  Cost is $15 without a frame.  It will fit into an 8x8" square shadowbox frame or could be made to fit in a 9x9" shadowbox frame.

Oh, you want to SEE it first?  Okay.  It was CASEd from one I saw somewhere, but I can't locate the stamper's name who made the original.

This one was taken with a flash so you can see the detail...
But this one was taken with no flash so you can see the colors better...

If you want to come, please bring your regular stamping supplies along with a strong adhesive (like Sticky Strip) and if you have it, a Crumb Cake ink pad (since all of the squares are sponged along the edges with Crumb Cake, you can finish up faster if you have your own pad).  If you don't have a Crumb Cake pad, it's not a problem; I have two that can be shared.

Please let me know no later than 1:00 PM on Monday if you want to come to class to make one of these.  That should give me enough time to get all of the supplies cut and prepared.  You can send me an e-mail or contact me through my Facebook page.

Until next time...
HAPPY STAMPING!
