Scrapbook Class – Register Now

Join me on Sunday January 5th for a Scrapbooking class to scrap all of your Holiday pictures! Not ready to scrap those Holiday pictures yet?  I will also have a couple of inspiration journals available for you to work on. 101_0001 This year’s Holiday Scrapbook is an 8×8 scrapbook with 10 divided pages.  That is 20 pages for lots of great pictures to celebrate this Holiday Season or past Holiday seasons…   Here are a few pictures of what I did with this Holiday Scrapbook.  It comes with 35 card stock weight tags that are pre-cut and fit into the slots for labeling pages.  101_0002  101_0003 That makes this project a snap with lots of room for great photos and journalling.  I will have extra page protectors available for purchase.  The cost of this class is $30 which includes the scrapbook, one set of 10 page protectors, a set of 35 pre-cut journaling tags and a partial package of the Season of Style designer paper to finish the book. Since I need to pre-order supplies for this class and this scrapbook is only available until the end of December, I am offering a special discount for early registration for this class!  If you register before December 2nd – I will pass along the savings on the SALE of this scrapbook to you. Regsitration will be $27 before the 2nd of December.  See below to register for this class! For those of you that aren’t interested in a Holiday scrapbook, I will have more inspiration journals available for you to work on.  A few weeks ago I hosted a class to make these journals using the This & That journal from the current Idea Book.  This class was a huge success and 5 people completed journals that were all very different and personalized to their needs! 100_9819_e1This journal is great to use for documenting things that inspire you or to document things about yourself that others may not know.  One lady prepared this journal as a gift for her son and his fiancé for them to document the process of planning their wedding.  It was beautiful and I am sure will mean so much to the engaged couple! The class includes the journal, stickers, ribbon and designer paper to decorate this beautiful journal.  The cost of this class is $30 but I will offer a discount of $3 (thats 10% off) for those that register prior to Dec. 2nd!  See below! I hope to see you on the 5th of January!

Flashback Friday Thanksgiving Punch Card

This Thanksgiving 101_0004_edited-1 card made with punches is an oldie but goodie that I found buried in my card stash.  I pulled this card out yesterday took it to the Senior Center at the Billerica Sr. Center.  They loved it!! The hat is a 1 1/4″ square punch with the word window punch for the brim.  The turkey’s head is the 1″ circle punch and the body is the 1 3/4″ circle punch. The feathers are made with the medium scallop circle big shot die.  Cut a chocolate chip scallop circle, a pumpkin pie scallop circle and a really rust scallop circle.  I used a full really rust scallop circle as the base for the feathers.  The pumpkin pie scallop is cut to form the top section of feathers and adhered to the really rust scallop circle.  The chocolate chip scallop circle is also trimmed to make the bottom section of feathers.   The turkey’s feet and nose are sections of the scallop circle punch with pumpkin pie card stock.  The turkey’s “gobble” is a piece of a really rust scallop circle. A white marker and brown Stampin’ Write marker was used to outline the edges of the pieces to look like stitching. This card brought back great memories of card classes with elementary school kids that I taught about 10 years ago…  All those kids have grown up and are in High School.  What a great handmade Thanksgiving card! Enjoy your weekend! signature line-003

Christmas Cards

  100_9925copyHere are two more Christmas cards made with the set Bootiful Occasions.  I love this set with all of the different boots for the holidays.  But alas, I don’t have the set. These Christmas cards were designed by my upline Lynn Thieret for her Stamp-a-Stack class.  So which card do you like better? 100_9927 copy_edited-1 The first card uses the northern flurry embossing folder on soft sky card stock. The second is made with marina mist card stock.  The large snowflake from the festive Flurry set is stamped and cut out with the framelits.  A scallop circle is punched and sponged with marina mist ink.  The boot is stamped and cutout on top of the scallop circle. Happy Stampin’ signature line-003

Christmas Cards

These are the last of the cards from my weekend retreat with my Stampion’ Team!  I love this cute 100_9937 card was designed by Laura Perriera!  This cute little elf is so sweet The elf’s legs are made with the Season of Style Designer paper.  The feet are made by cutting a top note die from Cherry cobbler card stock.   The bows on the elf shoes are two butterflies punched from gum ball green card stock.  The butterflies are cut apart and layered to look like bows.  The bows are made from the silver taffeta ribbon.   And to finish it off, the bells are punched from silver glimmer paper using the small scallop punch. 100_9930 copy This last card was designed by Deanna Czarniecki who is one of the most creative people that I know!!  This card is designed around the Festive Flurries stamp set and matching framelits. The card base is smokey slate.  This card is a gate fold card so is scored at 2 1/8″ from each end of the card base.  She layered a piece of whisper white card stock on the inside of the card and stamped the small snowflake in coastal cabana ink. Deanna stamped the small snowflake with coastal cabana ink and the medium snowflake with smokey slate ink.  She then cut these out with the framelits and also cut out a large snowflake from coastal cabana and the medium snowflake from smokey slate card stock.    She added texture to these snowflakes with the  polka dot embossing folder. 100_9941 copyTo layer the snowflakes, start with the large snowflake in coastal cabana and attach to the right half of the card.  NOTE:  Don’t add adhesive to the whole snowflake.  Just the side you are attaching to   the card!  Then layer the snowflakes stamped in smokey slate on top of the large snowflake.  Next on the left side start with the smokey slate snowflake and layer the coastal cabana stamped snowflake to the top. Deanna added a pearl jewel to the center of her top snowflake.  I used one of the frosted flurry embellishments. Simply Beautiful!!   signature line-003
