October Class Share!

Hello!  Here I am again with another class post but not getting caught up on the in between posts.  And that is because I am so busy making card kits for classes or to sell that on my down time I am away from the computer in the craft room, often in front of my big 55 inch tv!  Sad, but true!  And this class, is going to make me busy every day until class time.  Because it is my CRAZY class!  This is the third year I have taught it and every time, once I start to prep, and think of how many die cuts or stamped images I need, I think ...what were you thinking?  It is a great deal for the customer and I really do love that!  I do 90% of the work for them, and once they do the steps to complete each card they have a card they can say they made.  Can't get better than that.    So, here we go again!  On the store website and newsletter, they saw a group photo of the cards, but on here, you can see each one ... all 15 of them!  Enjoy!

Now I think that is a great selection of Christmas cards.  What do you think?  Each card kit will also include a colored cardstock panel and a white panel stamped with a sentiment for the insides.  Below are the details if you are interested in either coming to class or would like a kit.  The store's number is 972-923-3151.  Or send me a message. 
6 x 6 Christmas Card Bonanza! (aka Tina's Crazy Class!)  Wed. October 11th 11:00 a.m. and Sat. October 14th 2:30 p.m.  $50 
For the third year, I am bringing to you the ladies most favorite class, and also one that makes me think, I must be crazy!  You will follow my samples to create 15 complete cards in class!  In addition, as part of your kit, you will receive the remaining half of a 6 x 6 pad from Echo Park called A Perfect Christmas, my detailed instructions and measurements for each page left in your pad, so that you can cut the remaining sheets, add your own white cardstock bases to create a second set of cards at home.  Plus, you will also receive all stamped and die cut images, all the colored panels and inside sentiment panels for your "to go kits"!  If 15 cards are plenty, then you will have embellishments, colored cardstock panels, and half of a 6 x 6 pad to create other items with.  I have a limited number of pads so make sure you don't get left out!  Please bring adhesive to include pop ups, mini or micro glue dots, an X by Xyron (if you have one), detailed scissors, and your preferred coloring medium.  (Copics I used: B12, BG10, C0, C7, R25, E00, E29, E31, E35, E41, E50, E57, G19, G46, R11, R27, Y11, Y17, Y35, YG63,YR15, YR23, W2).  All other supplies provided.

September Class Share!

Hello!  Wow, it looks like it has been a while since I added anything here, which is such a shame because I still have tons of card creations to show you.  I just don't think about it but I will work on writing some posts for you.  But, before I can get to that, I have to show you my next card class for The Crafty Scrapper.  As in past years, I like to do my Halloween/Fall class in September so that I have a couple of months to do Christmas, and then for December, I typically do tags, gift card holders, etc.  Last month I got myself on the store calendar for the remainder of the year, with the classes being earlier in the month than I normally teach, so this next one is coming up fast for Sept. 13th and 16th.  The store had just gotten in some new Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix and I thought, okay I can work with that!  So without further ado ... enjoy!

First up is a card called a Bridge card. The set of dies is called Village Graveyard.  It is hard to tell in the photo but it is a pretty small card but it will fold flat which then makes it an A2 size for an envelope. 

 The next photo shows the insert panel pulled up from the pocket so you can add your message.

The next card is as much about the dies as the card itself because this set of dies (11 of them)  are all these adorable Halloween icons that I couldn't decide which ones to pick to use. So, I found a card idea where I could use them all!  The set is actually called Mini Halloween Things!

Front view first ...

 And then opened fully ...

 And a close-up of the dies ...

Card #3's die called Moonlit Owl is actually intended to be for Halloween, but by adding small leaf dies both on the tree limbs and inside the shaker, I transformed it into a fun Fall card ...

 I had to go big (5 x 7 inch card) for this one!  Here is the inside view ...

Here are the detail if you are interested in coming to class or would like a kit.  Call the store at 972-923-3151.
Halloween & Fall Die Creations!  Wed. Sept. 13th 11:00 a.m. and Sat. Sept. 16th 2:30 p.m.$28
 All three cards you will make in this class feature the new Tim Holtz die sets from Sizzix.  First, is a Bridge card with a little haunting scene.  Second, is a tri shutter card with the most adorable Halloween icons.  And lastly a fall shaker card.  Please bring adhesive to include 1/8" scor-tape, pop up dots, and some kind of adhesive for very tiny areas, tweezers, a poker, and detailed scissors.  No coloring in this class!  All other supplies are provided!

See you soon - I promise!
Happy Stamping!

P.S. I forgot to mention that I am doing the "crazy Christmas card class"  again.  And this next week I will be working on class samples way early.  Mark your calendar now for the class dates ...October 11th and 14th.  (the only thing that might change the dates would be if I could get a job ... still trying)!

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 ...
Make a Scene!  Saturday, August 12th 2:30 p.m. $28
Using Lawn Fawn's stamps and dies, you will create three unique dimensional cards all with fun scenes!  All three cards will flatten to fit in an envelope.  Please bring adhesive to include 1/8" scor-tape, micro or mini glue dots, detailed scissors and your preferred coloring medium.  (Copics I used: card 1: B02, YG17, Y15, Y26, G000, B52, YR24, E43, R27, R24, W1, E00, E25, card 2: C2/C3, R11, C5, YR18, YR23. BG01, YG25, card 3: E00, E57, R22, R11, BG32, C3, E21/E55).  All other supplies will be provided.

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!

Christmas in July #2!

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.

Christmas in July #1!

Hello!  If you missed last Saturday's post,  be sure to scroll down to see it because I showed you 16 Christmas cards I made last week!  Unlike today's post and the ones every day this week, are cards that I made in December of 2016, just a few days before I left Gary.  I wasn't able to show you because I didn't have access to my computer for a couple of months.  And then I decided I would wait until July to show you.  Get to it girl ... July is almost over!  Enjoy!

As you can see, there are two color variations of the same card.  I have always liked this fun little set of stamps from Inky Antics.

See you tomorrow for another Christmas in July card!
Happy Stamping!

Christmas in July x 16!

Hello!  Next week, I will be showing some of the cards that I made last December that I haven't shown show you.  I thought July would be a good time to get caught up on those!  But today's cards are not from last year.  This group I made this week!  Yep, I did!  You see at the scrapbook show, I picked up some Echo Park 6 x 6 pads at a pretty good price and thought you know what, I think I will use them to create some cards.  I will be ahead of the crazy Christmas season rush and I might even sell a few.  One half of the pad made these 16 cards ... enjoy!

 These are complete cards and by that I mean I added a matching colored panel and a white panel with a sentiment stamped on each.  If you are interested, in kits, email me. 

Happy Stamping!
