June 2016 class

It's been 6 months since I held my last class.  Although I missed everyone and the crafting, it was a much needed break for me.  But I'm ready to get back into the swing of things this month!  My June class will be held on Saturday, June 18 at 10:00 a.m.  We will be creating 12 birthday cards and 5 tags.  I'm a little late in celebrating the "I'm Bringing Birthdays Back", but better late than never, right?  We are making 2 each of 6 cards and the 5 tags.  I know this is more than what we normally make, but this is a special class for me as my first class after my 6 month break!
My Saturday class is already full, but have a few more spaces for my Sunday, June 19 class.  I know it's Father's Day, but if you want to attend, you can take a photo of the samples and prep your cards to finish at home.
If you are interested in attending my June 19 class, please message me ASAP so I can include a kit for you.
Looking forward to this class!

November Giftcard Holder class

I guess I started this post and never finished sorry! Wanted to share with you anyway the gift card holders we made at our November class.

Our November gift card holder class was so much fun!  Here are the projects...the first GCH was made using the Envelope Punch Board.  We used a 7 1/2 X 7 1/2 cardstock and we made the first score mark at 3 3/8.  I cut off one of the flaps and glued the other tabs together to form a sleeve.  Decorated it with the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and cut out with the coordinating dies.  You can purchase it in a bundle too!  I believe that this set is still available for a limited time.  Check the Stampin up! website/
This is what it looks like when you take out the insert.
The next GCH was inspired by Dawn Olchefski.  The cut out word "Joy"  came from the Wonderful Wreath framelit set.
Here is a view of the GCH out of the sleeve.  I really love this especially because it was easy to make!
This gift card holder was made with our Chevron gift bag. We folded it in half so that it made 2 pockets, one for the tag with gift card and the other for the a little note.
Here's a view of a gift card tag and note.
This is one of my favorite gift card holders from the class.  This fun holder was made by Lorri Heiling.  You can check out her blog HERE.  Thanks Lorri!
This is what it looks like when you pull out the insert.  Very cute!
Another view...
Found most of these ideas through Pinterest, but this idea, someone recalled that we did something like this before...I don't remember when we made it, but I still love the idea.  I used an oldie but goodie stamp set which is no longer available (sorry!)
Here's the inside where you put the gift card!
Another view...
These were the five gift card holders that we made.  Thanks for stopping by to see my post!  More delinquent posts to follow!

January Class Sneak Peek!

Happy New Year!!  Can't believe it's already 2015!  I hope everyone had a nice holiday season.  It's now time to get back into the swing of things and time for another class!  This is everyone's favorite Stamping time of the year where we celebrate SALE-A-BRATION!  Briefly, the reason why sale-a-bration is everyone's favorite time of year is because for every $50.00 you spend (before shipping and tax), you can earn one free product from the sale-a-bration catalog!  If you would like to receive the sale-a-bration catalog or the new Occasions catalog, send me an email and I will send one to you!
This month's class projects will include projects using some of the sale-a-bration products as well as products from the Occasions catalog.  Typical me, didn't get a chance to prep samples for the class until yesterday.  I hope this is not a start to another year of last minute planning, believe me, I am trying hard to get things done on time.  Class is this weekend - Saturday, January 17 and Sunday, January 18 at my home from 10:00 a.m.  Please RSVP as soon as possible to save your space for these classes.  Here is a sneak peek of the projects we will be making.  In addition, we will be making tags using the all new Ornate Tag Topper punch (another tag topper!! Yippee!)
Class fees will stay at $25.  Demonstrators pay $12 and kits in the mail $35.  You will receive everything you need to complete the class projects.  I know you will love using all of these brand new items!!  Please be sure to bring your tool kit to class.  Having your own adhesive and scissors and whatever tools you use to craft (including your reading glasses!).  I am looking forward to sharing these projects with you as well as sharing the new products!  Hope you will join me for this fun class!
I will be working on some late posts from our December holiday party (the projects) as well as some other posts to share.  Thanks for stopping by today!

November Class - Gift Card Holders!

The final class of 2014 - Gift Card Holders for the holidays!  I had fun creating the gift card holders for this class after a lot of searching for inspiration and ideas.  I know you will love the projects!  This class is scheduled for this coming weekend, Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23.   The cost is $25.00 for the class kit which will include everything you need to complete the projects.  Please remember to bring your tool kit which should include your choice of adhesive, scissors and anything else you need to craft with (including your reading glasses!)
Demonstrators pay $12.00 for their kit and kits in the mail $35.00.  Please RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your kit.  I will be making only 15 kits and kits will be reserved on a first come, first served basis.  I already have a few people that signed up at the last class so don't wait!  Here's a sneak peek of the projects!
Life is so busy for everyone and it's been a crazy year for me trying to juggle work and home life with 4 kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats, yikes!  Did you all know that I have 4 kids living at my house?  In addition to Nolan, we have his girlfriend Tanner living with us as well as one of Nolan's best friend, Philip.  His brother Eric moved in a short time after Philip and they've been living with us for about a year and a half now.  Not your normal family life for these kids, with no where else to go, my husband and I felt that we needed to help these young adults get on their feet and to make sure they know that they are loved and to guide them to make right choices in life.  Needless to say, this has been one my biggest challenge juggling the lives of 4 young adults.  There are some days that I am totally exhausted and sometimes want to give up.  I just thought I'd explain my life situation so you can understand why even more so these days, that it takes me forever to come up with projects and get them posted.  I'm a procrastinator to begin with, but life in my house just adds to this madness!
With that being said, I hope you will join me for this last class of the year.  In early December, I will be having my holiday party for those who have attended my class during the year.  This will be a potluck event and will include FREE projects as my gift to you!  I will be posting news about that event soon.  Thank you for taking a peek at my monthly blog post and I hope to see some of you this weekend!

The 50 Tag Class is back! Getting ready for the holidays!

By popular request, the 50 Tag Class is back! In this class, we will be making five (5) each of ten (10) designs.  Holy moly, right?!  Over the years of creating crazy tags with tiny intricate pieces, I've learned to simplify it especially when making 50 tags, right?!  This year, you won't be disappointed with the designs that I came up with.  I spent days combing through Pinterest to get inspired by all of the many wonderful designs and boy was I inspired!  Here is the sneak peek of what we will be making!
The class date, however, has been moved from the normal third week of the month (October 18) to Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26 from 10:00 a.m. until we finish!!  You will need to bring your own tool kits making sure you have enough adhesive to make the 50 tags!  Your kit will include all materials to make the tags (cardstock, ribbons, accessories) including a pack of stampin' dimensionals and the use of the machines, dies, etc.  The cost for this class is $50.00, which comes out to only $1.00 per tag! Demonstrators pay  discounted price of $30.  I'm so sorry to announce that there will be no kits in the mail for this class as there are just too many pieces to cut and stamp and you probably won't get the kit until after Christmas (just kidding!) but seriously, it will take me a while to complete for you.
If you are interested in attending this class, please RSVP by email as soon as possible!  I will be taking reservations up to October 14 in order to prepare these kits.  The class will be limited to 10 people for each session in order to make room for all of the stations for each project.
Looking forward to seeing you for this fun class as we get ready for the holidays!  It will be here before we know it!
