Handmade Gentle Peace Holiday Card

DSC_6342w   Today I have a handmade card that was stamped with the new Stampin’ Up! Gentle Peace Stamp set and colored with the new Blendabilities markers. This stamp set reminds me of the old stamp set Holy Triptych which had beautiful Christian images that looked like stained glass. The details for this card: Cardstock:  Soft Sky and Whisper White with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper under the sentiment. Inks:  Momento Ink with Blendabilities markers The card base is embossed with Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday catalog.   The embossed image is enhanced with a little Shimmer Paint on a sponge dauber. Want to learn how to use the Blendabilities Markers? Check out my class tomorrow night at 7pm – Tues. Oct. 28th

Scrapbook & Journal Class

Well – if you haven’t heard, I had a little problem with some broken pipes and had to postpone my class on Sunday January 5th to make a Scrapbook or Inspiration Journal.   My Creative Playground is going to be closed for renovation for the next few weeks due to water damage. So I am now offering this class at Sal’s Pizza at 299 Washington St. in Woburn MA on Monday January 20th (Martin Luther King Day) at 1pm. I have two options for this class.  a Scrapbook to scrap all of your Holiday pictures or an Inspiration Journal! 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. For those of you that aren’t interested in a Holiday scrapbook, I will have Inspiration Journalsavailable 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. Let me know the theme of your journal and I can pre-print page headers.  I have page headers for a Journal called the Book of Me.  Many women are the picture takers in their family.  But do family members really know the Mom and what her likes, dislikes, etc. are?? Why not make a book that tells your family members about yourself? Or use the Journal for a Bucket List Book!  There are so many different ideas for these journals!! You can register here:
