August Class Share!

Hello!  For those of you who follow my teaching schedule, you are probably thinking that I got my samples done way early this month ... well ... last Saturday during my class, we went and got the store's schedule and figured out dates for me to teach and this month, the only Saturday that will work is NEXT SATURDAY, the 12th!  So, you see, I am not early, but late!!  The last Saturday is full and the Saturday before that I have committed to helping with my church's garage sale, so next Saturday it is!  Also, I usually teach a weekday before the Saturday class day but there is a guest teacher next week during the week and I decided the following Wed. I will be knee deep in pricing garage sale items.  So this month, one day only.  Now on to the what I am teaching.  I knew there would not be time for Carolyn to get product in so I picked three Lawn Fawn sets that are in stock to make the cards.  Each feature a cute scene in a fun dimensional box. Let me show you ...enjoy!

First, a repeat of a pop up box.  I think I taught this one two years ago, but favorites are worth repeating!  I love this one because it fits perfectly in a A2 size envelope ..
 The next photo shows the pull out sentiment panel in the back ..."Today the world revolves around you"!

The second card is called a push me, pull me box card and that is because you push/pull the two side tabs to either open or make it lie flat to put in an envelope.  This one will fit into a 5 x 7  envelope. 

 And this is a look from the back, again showing the sentiment panel.  This one reads "Have an unforgettable day"!
 And last but not least, a diorama card ...

This one is hard to see in a photo but in person, you see how 3D it is!  A sentiment can be added on the backside and it also folds flat to fit into an A2 envelope.
If you are interested in my class or a class kit, call the store and sign up.  972-923-3151.  Here are the details ...

Christmas in July #7!

Hello!  For the past 6 days I have shown you Christmas cards that I made in December of 2016.  I knew I wanted to show you sometime in July.  I almost let the month get away from me.  But today is the 31st and today I have the last card of 2016 to show you ...perfect!  Enjoy!

What a pretty card this one is!  I love the poinsettia dies and the added pine branches is an added nice touch.  I think the seasons greeting die is one I borrowed from a friend, but making my own set of Christmas in July cards, I wished I had this one ... gonna have to buy it before this December! 

Even though I don't have any more Christmas cards to show you, I still have plenty of others to get  caught up showing you, so I will be back soon to continue!

Happy Stamping!

Hello!  I have a couple more cards for you today of Christmas cards that were actually made in 2016 that I had not shown you.  Today's cards uses the My Favorite Things Santa set.  This is probably my favorite Christmas set of all I have.  And, I am sure that is because I have a "Santa collection"!  Cards are cute ... Enjoy!

Christmas in July #5!

Hello!  Today's cards, actually made in December of 2016, used pieces that I had cut and stamped for a class card kit that didn't get sold.  So, I created some fold over cards with the pieces.  Enjoy!

Do you see the silver circles?  Remember those are scratch off stickers and so that means that I had stamped fun little sentiments under each of the circles so that the card recipients could scratch them and see the words!  How fun!
See you tomorrow for more Christmas in July creations.
Happy Stamping!

Christmas in July #3!

Hello!  I am back with two more Christmas in July cards that were made in December of 2016.  This set of tree dies from Impression Obsession is a set I couldn't find last week when I was making a current set of Christmas in July cards.  No biggie but hopefully, I will find them by this coming December.  I like this sketch on this one, hope you do too!  Enjoy!

Similar cards, but slight different sketch and different papers changes the whole look.
See you tomorrow for more Christmas in July cards!

Happy Stamping!

Hello!  Back today with another Christmas card I made in December of 2016.  Interesting enough, I see that the stamp I used, and the sketch are both ones I picked for the new Christmas in July cards I made last week (see last Saturday's post).  Obviously, I like little Rudy her and the sketch too!  Enjoy!

FYI, the stamp set is from Verve stamps.
