Christmas Card class

So for those of you that have checked out my SU website have seen that on November 14th I am having a Christmas Card class. I have however changed the cards and the details. The class fee will be $10 and we will be making one of each of the 5 cards shown to the left. I have posted some of these pictures in previous posts but thought it would be nice to have them all in one post so you dont have to scroll around to find them. You will also get an envelope for each card. If you choose too, you can make multiples of a specific card for and additional $2 each. I have to know no later than 11/1 if you will be doing this so I can make sure I have enough supplies.
Dont forget that I am also participating in a Christmas Card extravaganza (see a few posts down) where you can make however many of the cards you choose. Its an all day event with raffles and prizes. Bring your friends, family, whoever you want. Just dont forget to RSVP by the dates shown.
Happy Stampin!

Bows, Bows, and More Bows....

Oh what a Fabulous weekend it has been. Its been in the 70s here in Mass and absoultely gorgeous outside. Yesterday we went to my SIls to help her remodel her basement and while the guys were working her and I took the kids apple picking. It was the cutest thing ever! Kaleb had a blast! He was alll into picking apples. Wes on the other hand was more interested in running around all the trees. Someday I will post pics of them. If I had the pics from yesterday I would post them just to show how cute they were....but I dont. So anyways.. check out these Bows. I am in love with making them. They are super quick to make and come out great. This is a picture of some of the ones i have finished. The rest are cut out, just not put together yet. My SIL and I are going to try to sell these at a craft fair next month. Hopefully they do well. If not, I have bows for all my christmas presents. The only thing you need to make these are a 6x12 piece of dsp, brads, dimensionals, and a hole punch. If you would like detailed directions on how to make it just email me and I will send them to ya. Hope you have a wonderful Columbus Day!

Sweet Treats Update.

Ok so totally ignore most of the post below this. This is what happens when I try to plan in advance. I end up changing my mind on the projects we will be doing. So anyways the class will still be held on October 17th at 6:00 however I have decided not to charge for it. If you attend, you will receive an emblem. You will also be entered into a drawing to choose a new stamp set out of my stash. For every $20 you spend in merchandise you will get another ticket to enter into the drawing. Does that sound a little more fun? We will be making a Frankie box, Peppermint Patty Sandwhiches, Sour Creme container, a wrapped kit kat, and a candy corn carrot. Please RSVP to me no later than October 14th. If you register a friend to come with you, you will receive another emblem. Hope to see you there!
Thanks for stoppin by!

Last world Card Making Day card

This is the last card that the ladies that came to world card making day made. They made 5 cards all of which I have already posted (pocket silhouettes,frankie, mummy, and yesterdays card). I, again, found this card on a blog and thought for sure I book marked it but cant seem to find it this second. I have been cursed with stampers block, that is why so many of my cards this time around were cases of other peoples. I hope to get some creativity back and start making my own cards soon. Im so glad everyone came. I love when the girls come over and we get to stamp. Its so much fun. Hope you have a wonderful day!
