April Class sneak peek! 20 All occasion cards!

Can you believe that the samples for my April class is done?  No wonder it's been raining (giggling)...At my next class, we will be making 20 All Occasion cards - the occasions are: graduation, birthday, new baby (boy & girl), sympathy and thank you.  We will be making 4 cards of each design (except for the baby cards - 2 boy cards, 2 girl cards).  Each kit will contain 1 pack of 20 cards and envelopes and one Fresh Prints paper stack.  I'm still trying to figure out a project to put the cards in.  That will be the surprise!  I had fun creating these cards - I know you will enjoy making them and also love having cards ready made for use!
Classes will be held on Saturday, April 19 and Sunday, April 20.  I know that Sunday is Easter Sunday, but I hope that you can still make it.  Please RSVP BY EMAIL no later than April 2nd.  Because the kits will include the cards & envelope set and the paper stack, I will need to make sure that I order enough of each.  Cost for the class is $25 and in addition to those products mentioned above, it will include everything you need to complete the 20 cards and something to hold the cards too.  After you RSVP, please send in your payment (much appreciated!)  If you are interested in this class but cannot make it, I am offering "to go" kits for $35 which will include a completed sample of each card and the shipping cost of your kit.  Demonstrators pay only $12 for a kit (this will include the card & envelope set, the paper stack and all other supplies to complete the kit).  Please remember to bring your tool kits to the class!
I look forward to seeing all of you next month!

March Class Projects

I'm finally taking some time for ME today since it is a State of Hawaii holiday - Kuhio Day.  I'm spending it at home trying to catch up on some things that I really needed to do but have no time otherwise!  I'm also taking a day off tomorrow to continue to finish up on my to do list and getting more "ME time" in...getting my nails done, much needed!!  Okay, here are the class projects we did this month.  I ran out of my own ideas and had such a difficult time finalizing the projects.  My fix was to get inspired on Pinterest.  Here, I found some awesome ideas, including this cute, cute, cute triangle chick.  This idea came from the very talented Julie Davidson - please check out her blog and give her some can check Julie out HERE  Thank you Julie for the inspiration.

For this next project, I used the envelope punch board and I wanted to make something that could hold a regular size candy bar (a flat candy bar).  I viewed a lot of projects online for smaller candies, but I really wanted something larger so this is what I came up with.  The finished size not including the ears is 6 1/4".  Since this bunny was large, I used the gift bow bigz sizzix die that was featured in our holiday catalog (sorry, catalog expired already).  I thought this bunny turned out pretty cute.
I was inspired again on Pinterest to make a chick is my take on the basket.  I used our fancy favor die (and I didn't even realize that this die is now retired...(what?!?!)  One of my favorite dies!!! 
Found this idea to make carrots on Pinterest as well...this idea came all the way from Australia by Tanya Bell.  You can search for this project called Carrot Eggs.  Super easy to make - using the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch and the fringe scissors to make the greens.  I held them together using glue dots.  I even put a glue dot behind the chocolate egg so they don't fall out.
This next project uses the Framelit Envelope Liner die.  Idea CASED from Christine Miller of  Find Chris on YouTube to watch how to make this project!

Using the fancy favor die again, I made a bunny basket.  Thought it came out pretty cute and easy to assemble too!
 This last project was made using the Sweet Treat ups.   Fun and easy to make!
Hope you liked seeing my March Easter class projects.  Thanks so much for looking at my blog today!

March Class sneak peek - Easter Projects!

Happy March!  So many things have been consuming my free time lately, meaning that I have had no free time!  But, with that being said, here are the projects I came up with for my March class which is scheduled for Saturday, March 15 and Sunday, March 16.  I apologize that my sneak peeks are sooooo late, but I guess better late than never right?
In addition to my late start in actually figuring out the projects, for some reason, the projects for this month did not come easy, I have no idea why.  I wasted a couple of days making samples and not liking any of them.  I finally gave up and searched through Pinterest to get motivated.  There are two projects that were exact CASE projects but the rest of the projects were altered to my own liking. 
If you are interested in attending this month's classes, please RSVP via email to me ASAP.  I usually don't see any comments from this blog, so email is the best, or if you have my number, a text is good too.  I will also be posting this announcement on Facebook and Instagram, so if you are on any of those social networks, RSVP there is good too.
The cost for this class is $25 and will include everything you will need to make these projects including some Easter candy to finish off the project.   You may bring your payment on class day.  Please bring your tool kit to the class - adhesive, scissors, paper trimmer and anything else you use to craft with.   Kits "to go" cost is $35 and will include shipping cost and the projects ready to put together.  If you are a demonstrator, your special cost for this class is $10 - if you are not a demonstrator, now is a good time to join!  During the Sale-a-bration promotion, a new demonstrator will get $150 in products for only $99.  This limited offer is good through March 31.  Contact me for more info! 
I hope you will join me for this fun class!

NEW CLASS POLICY:  If you RSVP for a class and cannot make it for whatever the reason, as a courtesy to me, please make arrangements to make payment and pick up your class kit.  My commitment to you is to prepare and reserve the kit for you and it's kind of uncool to get stuck with a bunch of extra kits that people made commitments for as it is a loss for my business.  I hope you understand where I'm coming from.  I do appreciate everyone that comes to my classes as it helps support my business.
