August Class Projects!

For once, I'm on time to share the projects that we made from class.  I know I still didn't share projects from June and July, but I will!  I finally organized my photos so I can upload them on my blog.  I will get to those after I return from my trip.
This month's class featured a bunch of different techniques.  Here are the projects!  The first project was created because I was trying to use up these Altoid tins that my husband saves for me.  I knew that I would use them for something, one day.  Here is the decorated lid.  Used the new photopolymer stamp set called Christmas Bliss, love this set!! 
Here is the inside view, ten (10) tags inside!
 Here's a closer look at the tags.  I love the tag topper punch, makes life easy making all of those tags!
Love, love, love this slider card!  Inspired by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.  You can see all of her awesome videos on her YouTube channel.
Here is the card when you pull on the ribbon, so cute!
A Christmas Angel!  This angel was made by Dawn O. using our bow Bigz die.  Here is the link to view how to make this easy angel
Another awesome card by Dawn Griffifth.  This card is called a Dutch Fold card, love it!!  You can view this video on Dawn's YouTube channel as well.
I asked for suggestions from the ladies who attend my classes and this was suggested.  It's a Cluster stamped card.  How cute did this turn out?!  Thanks Melita for the suggestion.  This idea was adapted from Papertrey Inc.  I used all SU stamps and inks for this card.
This card is called a Cascade card.  Very simple to make.  Many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest too!
Thanks for stopping in to read my post today.  Thank you to the ladies who attended on Saturday.  It was a very small class, but we had so much fun!  Hoping to see you all in September.  We will be making a couple Halloween projects and get into Christmas!

Sneak Peek for August!

I can't believe how fast time is passing.  We are now in August!!  Here is my little sneak peek of the projects we will be creating this month.  I've been surfing YouTube a lot getting ideas from so many talented people out there.  Thank goodness for YouTube!!  This month, we will be making these fun projects that involve different techniques.  I had fun creating the cards and know you will too!  I hope you will join me.
This month, I will be having only one class on Saturday, August 16 at 10:00 am at my home.  If you cannot make the Saturday, please email me and I can do a Sunday class.  The reason for the Saturday only class is that I'm getting ready to leave for a trip to Las Vegas as the youngest of my hanai kids will be going to UNLV and I'll be going up there to help settle him in his dorm.  Thankful that my older sister, Cheryl and her hubby Rick will be going with me as I would probably get lost!  I'm actually looking forward to a mini vacation, but the priority is taking Eric to college and getting him settled in. (his name is Eric just like my hubby, so I've been referring to him as "brother", lol).   Anyway, back to the class!  Please RSVP via email as soon as you can so I can save a kit for you.  Please do not RSVP via this blog because as you can see, I'm not on it regularly like I used to.  The class kit is $25.00 and will include all materials and use of my supplies (stamps, inks, dies, machines).  You will need to bring your tool kit (adhesive, scissors, paper trimmer, scoring board, etc).  Demonstrators pay only $12.00 and kits in the mail $35.00 (this includes postage and your kit stamped, cut and ready to put together.  Note that the kits in the mail will take a little extra time so I can complete the stamping and cutting).
I can't wait to share these projects with you.  I am looking forward to seeing you at class!
