September Class Cards

Hey there again today!  Two posts today.  I feel like I should get extra credit or something. hehe
I wanted to share with you the projects that were made at my September class.  My class projects are usually a little more detailed than what we would do at a in home party and it allows customers to learn a few more tips, tricks and ideas.  I know I've shown a couple on my blog already, but here they are all together.

 This one features a little different fold and the ladies really liked it.  Of course it was the easiest card of the night.  Hmmm...........LOL!
They also really liked this one as well.  They especially liked how we made it look like a door and those that hadn't already purchased the Hardwood background stamp had to add that to their order.

 These last two were ones that I had shared on the blog before, but they were excited that they got to make them.
It was a fun evening and everyone went home with cards they really liked.  Thanks ladies for attending and spending the evening with me.  Now for those who haven't attended classes, see what you are missing out on?  Don't they look like fun?  Look for another class soon.

Tying up Loose Ends

Good Morning!  As you know I've missed posting the last couple of days.  I think I've had a flu bug of some sort and just haven't even made it to my office/stamp room.  Sorry about that.  I decided to clear up some things on my desktop today since I can't stand a full and messy computer desktop so I thought I'd share some things that have been in my need to post file.  So here goes.

This is called a screen card.  They are super fun and easy to make.  Might have to do one of these at an upcoming class.

This is made with a stamp set that was in the Occasions catalog and is no longer available, but you could substitute any stamp for this layout.  The colors and DSP are all the new ones and are available in our current catalog and of course in my online store.

 This is  a card using all the new 2014-2016 In Colors.
 Here is another Screen card using In Colors.
This card has some Project Life die cuts with the Framelits, In Colors, Work of Art stamp set.
There thanks for letting me get caught up.  If you have any questions please feel free to let me know.  Blessings to you and have a great day!

Owl Treats

Well we survived Monday and we are almost through Tuesday.  I'm not having the best week health wise, but what ya gonna do?  Just keep plugging along, cause "any day above ground is a good day".  Right?

I have my September stamp class tonight.  I think we are making some nice projects.  Most of them are ones that I've shared right here so hopefully the class attendees will be excited to be able to make them.  Class starts at 6:30 and I'm pretty much ready.  Just have to carry the stuff upstairs, but Brooke will be here shortly so she can help me.

I wanted to share something I made today that I found on Pinterest.  I'm not sure where this originated.  All I found was a picture and I winged it as far as measurements and such.

Aren't they cute?  I will be making some of these to sell at the scrapbooking retreat in mid October.  They are so simple to make with the Owl Builder Punch and the Fringe Scissors.

Have you checked out this weeks Weekly Deals?  Here they are.  Weekly Deals  I will try and post a picture of them as soon as I can.  My upline usually posts one we can share and she hasn't posted it yet.

Well I better get going.  Class time will be here before I know it.  Hey maybe I should go an catch a 5 minute nap.  That sounds like a good idea.

Lazy Sunday

It's been a lazy Sunday afternoon and I loved it.  Nothing better than a Sunday afternoon nap.  We went to church and then stopped and got hot and ready pizza and came home.  We watched the Tigers, slept and woke up in time to see them lose.  Not happy about that, but we are still in it.  Then I came down to the stamp room to do a couple of business issues and thought I'd get a post in.  I know I don't usually post on Sundays, but I've got a little post for ya.

I used the For All Things stamp set again.  Nothing difficult about this card at all.  I stamped the leaf three times, once in Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey.  I cut them out and only put adhesive on the bottom part of the leaves.  When they were applied to the embossed background it made them pop out a little on the top and give more dimension.  I made a several loop bow from the Gold Baker's Twine and attached with a glue dot.  The greeting is popped up on dimensionals.

Well that's it, I guess.  Oh no, I forgot.  I have my September stamp class on Tuesday night at 6:30.  Are you coming?  If you are please RSVP by tomorrow.  Please bring a pair of scissors and your own adhesive.  I will supply everything else for the projects plus snacks.  Cost is $20.  My regular attendees are always talking about what a good time they have so maybe you should come and see for yourself.  I'd love to have you!

Grateful for Scraps

Yes, you read that right!  I am grateful for scraps.  Why you ask?  Well I have to say that I think some of my best cards come from my scrap pile.  I periodically as you know, I make myself use the scrap pile to make cards.  I did a series awhile back on them.  I think it was back in May maybe?  Anyway that is where this card came from today.  The stamped piece was from an attempt at something I had in my mind and when it was stamped it just didn't strike my fancy so in the scrap pile it went.  Today I took it and trimmed it down and it became this card.  The fringe on the bottom came from the piece of Burlap Ribbon that I've been unraveling for projects I've already shown you.  Well I couldn't throw that piece that was left away, now could I?  I pulled it out of the scraps and it became fringe.  Don't ya love it?

I attached the Burlap Ribbon and a piece of Mossy Meadow Ribbon using sticky strip.  The bow was attached using glue dots.  A pretty simple card, but I really like how it turned out and I was able to use the scrap box.

We are off shortly to go and meet my uncle and cousin who are here from California.  They came to go fishing so the trip was short and they will leave tomorrow.  My cousin who has never been to Michigan referred to Lake Michigan as the ocean.  LOL!  Now that's funny!

Have a blessed day!

Freaky Friday

If you've been around here for very long, you know that I share a lot of my life here on my blog.  The good, the bad, the ugly.  Well today probably falls in the category of FREAKY!  I just can't put my finger on it, but I just feel so unsettled the last few days.  Maybe it's the weather (goes from freezing and gloomy to nice temps and sun all in one day) or it is most likely hormones.  I can honestly say that pre-menopause is not my most favorite time of life.  Can anyone else relate?  I think most of the time my family keeps looking at me waiting for my head to start spinning.  Cold, hot, happy, sad, tired, energetic....I seem to run the gamut everyday and honestly it's getting a little on my nerves.  So I guess hence the freaky feeling.  So tying in the freaky part I have a little freaky ghost card for you today.

I used the same layout as the card I made yesterday.  I think it's a great way to spotlight our wonderful DSP and also not have it over power the card.  I love that this set (Fall Fest) has matching Framelits to make it so easy to use.  If you noticed I also used the little banner from For All Things like I did on yesterday's card, but this time I stamped the Boo To You from the Good Greetings set that all hostesses who host a $300 party between now and October 31 will get for FREE!  Yes I said FREE!  That is in addition to the regular hostess benefits.  After I got the card done I felt it needed one more thing and that is when I used the little stars from Be The Star stamp set and stamped them in the metallic Encore Silver ink.  Don't you love the little gogglie eyes?  I had some in my craft stash to finish it off.

Well I hope you all are enjoying your Friday and I'll do my best to keep my head from spinning.  LOL!
