This is my "prototype" for my class on January 10th. I used an old Simply Scrappin' Kit to make it and it's not my favorite colors but this will give you the general idea for my class on January 10th. You get to choose your own paper and colors so they will all be different and I'm sure much cuter than this one! Let your creativity take flight! If you are in the NE Kansas or Kansas City Metro area and would like to sign up, let me know! The class fee is only $20!

Have a blessed Christmas!

This was a special class that I planned for a class I held at Broer's Flower Shop in Eudora. The owner, Heather, is holding different crafting classes there now and invited me to teach some stamping classes! Our next class there will be next Saturday, November 14th and will be the same projects as my Christmas card SAS #3. I will be having another session of it at my home on Sunday, November 22. Pictures of those projects in the next post!

WOW! It's been awhile since I posted again! The summer and getting the kiddos back to school was a busy time for me! I'm soooo glad they are back to school so I have time to play again!
These are the cards we made at my Christmas Card Stamp a Stack this weekend. The girls made 4 each of the 4 designs. I kept them fairly simple since I had new stampers coming. We will be having another session on October 11 and the third session on November 22. I will be posting the cards for the next session late this week or early next so come back to see what we will be making on October 11.

This picture shows the complete project! We made 4o invitations with stamped envelopes, 8 of the "Fairytale" boxes for the wedding party, 30 Mini Pizza boxes that will hold sugar cookies wrapped in parchment paper and stamped with the Polka Dot background, 20 One-sheet boxes, and a large bag of Hershey Nuggets wrapped in parchment paper, tied on the ends with linen thread and then wrapped in Designer Series Paper. Then we punched daisies and daisy centers and used mini glue dots to attatch then to the candies! I think those took the longest to make out of everything!
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to lately! I'm starting on a much larger wedding soon so stay tuned for pictures of that one!

Here are the Hostess Club projects we made for March!
The basket card uses the Basket and Blooms Sizzix Die (#113484)! Technically, it only uses half of the basket though! The grass is a strip of Green Galore and cut with paper snips to look like grass. The eggs use various Designer Series papers cut with the wide oval punch (#112082).
The base of the card included with your project materials is Barely Banana, I was running low so, I made my sample with Gable Green!
The Butterfly Box uses two Sizzix dies, the Top Note (#113463) and the Beautiful Buttlerflies die (#114507). The butterflies are cut with Pink Pirouette and Candy Lane Designer Series paper. You can't tell from this picture but...you build the box and then wrap your piece of ribbon around the box (secure on the side seam with Sticky Strip) and put one Top Note on the bottom and one on the top! Hint: Stamp your sentiment on the Top Note piece before attaching it to the top of the box! The ribbons are run through holes punched with your 1/8" hole punch and set eyelets in the holes, then run the ribbon through and tie! For the butterlies, add a drop of glue to the back of the small butterfly and adhere the body to the center of the larger butterfly, then wrap pink gingham ribbon around (for antenna) and secure with the brad! I used a small piece of sticky strip to secure the butterflies to the box!
The Easter Basket is made with 4 Scalloped Envelope (#113462) diecuts. You will snip the tabs off of two of them and lay out flat on the table; one with tabs, one without tabs, etc. then glue the tabs to the adjoining envelope. When you get them all connected, you will attach the last tab to the first envelope to form the box. Fold in the bottom flaps and add glue, set it on the table to square it up, then press down inside the box to adhere! Next you will glue the DSP strip to the scallop punched strip! Next, you punch two holes in one of the flaps, (this will be the front of your basket). Glue the other three flaps down. Attach the handle to the box with the brads. Wrap the celery ribbon around the box on top of the three flaps you glued down (I found it helps to secure the center of the ribbon to the back of the basket with a glue dot!), then run the ribbon through the holes on the front and tie in a bow!
I'm sure that was boring reading but I wanted to give you some of the ins and outs for creating your projects! I hope these instructions made a little sense! I'm not good at typing up directions! If you have questions, don't hesitate to call or e-mail me!

This is what we made last night at my Love you Much class! Participants who bought the bundle came and stamped all of these items in about 3 hours! We had a great time getting to know a new stamping friend - HEY JUDI!!
We used the Big Shot and Top Note Die for this cute little bagalope with a snack pak of M & M's inside, a full-size Valentine card, a cute basket with hearts for the sides, (I saw this done on another website and it was made as one piece! I tried it and had a heck of a time getting it to work right so I just stamped the hearts, cut them out, and attached to the base with sticky strip! The other way would probably be sturdier but this was easier!) We also made a mini pizza box with 4 - 3 x 3 cards and envelopes inside, easy peasy!!! And last but not least, we made a matchbook candy holder using the slit punch on each side to hold another snack pak of M&M's!
I'm doing a Valentine's Stamp Camp next Saturday night and will be doing completely different projects so stop by next Sunday and see what we made, or better yet, if you are a local stamping friend, sign up and come make the projects yourself!
