A Simple thank you

This is one of the many cards I made as Thank you's for all the gals who placed an order at my open house. This one uses the Raspberry Tart DSP, white grosgrain ribbon dyed with the Rose Red ink pad and the stamp is from the set - Taking Care of Business.

First Stamp Club technique night

Well, last night I held my first club technique night - only one of my ladies' had to miss it and so it was a full house! We made a gorgeous card (actually out of the SAB brochure!) and used the Polka Dot Punches set, the ribbon bundle & the Delicate Dots Designer Paper all from Sale-a-Bration!

We learned the Poppin' Pastels technique last night and the ladies all loved it! One of the gals just got the Stampin' Pastels for Christmas so was excited to learn ways to use them! It was so neat to see how each of them made their card slightly different than my sample and yet we all used the same supplies (for the most part! We did raid my stampin' space for punches - the ladies wanted to use the scallop edge punch and who can blame them!! )
Here is my original sample
and here is one of the cards made by the group.

Valentine's class review

Well, the Valentine's class was a blast - we had a nice small group which turned out well as they all got quite into the decorating part and class was a bit extended!! I took photos of the finished mailboxes and they are all so lovely and each so unique.

It is definitely a hit though and one that I will be offering again next year for those of you who missed this one!

And here are some of the cards that were made - We used the Love you much bundle & the Always stamp set. (we also used the "to You from Me" stamp from a retired hostess set.)

And a bag topper using Top Note die, Curly label punch, small square of DSP and the smallest heart from the heart to heart punch.

Valentine's Class

Valentine's Day is almost here - are you ready for it!?

On Feb 8th, 2009 from 3-5pm I have a valentine's class where we will decorate/alter a metal mailbox and make 4 3x3 cards. The cost for the class is $20 and this includes all supplies! You just need to bring yourself and your creativity!

The photo is a mailbox I created last year for my husband. This is only to give you an idea of what we are decorating - the end result may e very different!

Some ideas on how to use the mailbox -
  • use it as a gift box and place a gift inside.
  • Start a new tradition and use it as a place where you can leave little notes for your loved ones through out the year.
  • Reuse it each year as the place where you place a small Valentine's treat for your loved one.
  • Be creative!
Space is limited to the amount of mailboxes I have so don't delay - contact me today at to book your spot!
