Classes - Classes - Classes

I am holding lots of classes this month - Check out my Calendar of Events

On December 10, I am inviting you to  come to make this wonderful calendar:

The calendar cards sit on an easel - perfect for your desk or for a friend. 

I loved designing each month and making it special. If you live in my area (Frederick CO), you can come to my class and join in the fun. Download the information HERE.

If you are not in my area, try designing your own. You can pint out the calendar (see below for a link to the template) onto Whisper White Card Stock. Cut the calendars into 4" x 5 1/4" sections and design your calendar as you like. Then mount on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of card stock and set up on an easel. You will love looking at your calendar creation every day.

One thing I loved doing with these cards was using the Sponge Brayer to spread light color across the calendar. Because I wanted the dates to show, I did not want to put a heavy layer of background color and the Sponge Brayer worked perfectly. Check out this card.

If you don't have a Sponge Brayer, you will want to have one. They work beautifully and are handy for many applications.

Item #141714 $8 us.

Item #100780 $9 us. This is 40 sheets of great quality paper. The white is perfect for stamping.

You will need some adhesive - I love Stampin' Up!'s Snail adhesive 

Item # 104332 $7 us - this adhesive works great - easy to apply and provides good hold for this project.

You can purchase these items from me - Shop online at my Stampin' Up! Store

You can also download the template for the calendar HERE

Stay Tuned for more fun ideas!

OH SO fun! Stitched from the Heart Framelits are Perfect

Stitched from the Heart Framelits are a 

perfect touch to your cards.

I am always happy to find a quick and simple way to add elegance and a special touch to my cards. These framelits are just the ticket. See what I mean ...

This card is quick and it just "shines" when I add the great faux stitching to the oval. This is done with the Stitched from the Heart Framelits. And they coordinate with the fabulous layering framlits from Stampin' Up!. Now you have a marvelous tool.

Did you notice the look of stitching around the edge of the oval. This is done with the Stitched from the heart framelit. Just stamp and cut with the Big Shot and the Stitched from the Heart Framelit. The look of stitching is added to the cut oval. 


We used to do some paper piercing to get this stitched look but these framlits do it for you. What a delightful tool.

Did you notice that great stamp - it is on sale in the Clearance rack for just $7.98 - what a great deal.

Have fun shopping today 

Stitched from the Heart Framelits - 12 frames 
Coordinates with Layering Framelits
145372 - $30

Banner Blessings - 136720 - $7.98

Getting Ready for Christmas

Cookie Cutter Christmas

Its official! Cookie Cutter Christmas is the most popular Stampin' Up! stamp set this year. And the coordinating designer series paper, Candy Cane Lane is the best selling paper. I thought these products were the greatest too when I designed my card class.

Shaker cards are so popular right now. And I have incorporated the darling paper, Candy Cane Lane with the popular Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set for a great shaker card.

The inside of the card is just as fun as the outside. If you want to learn how to make this card and you live in the Frederick, CO area, sign up for my Christmas Card Buffet 
Or leave a message on my post with your contact information and I will forward the instructions to you as soon as they are ready.

Stampin' Up! has the most delightful new product - check it out!

And - there are some coordinating stamp sets that you can get 25% off right now until November 30. More Savings on GREAT stamp sets
