Sneak Peeks!

Who doesn't love a sneak peek right??? Well, I have just the thing for you today! I got a bunch of new stamps from the upcoming Ocassions Mini Catalog and the new Sale-A Bration Catalog! Woo Hoo! I can't give details yet, but this will get your mouth watering.

I still have some that I haven't played with yet and they will be coming in another post. I am super excited about Valentines this year because I now have some awesome stuff to work with!! You will notice that one card is made with the Filled With Love stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I broke down and purchased it since I just loved it. It is on a promotion right now as well. Ask me for details or go here to see the promo.

I know that lots of these have the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder used, but I think that is such a versatile folder and I really like it. But, you will spy a new one if you look closely too.
Happy Stamping and Peeking!

December Classes

I just wanted to let you all know that there are 2 more classes before Christmas if you want to have fun and create.
December 8th, Wednesday, at 7:30 we are doing Jolly Holiday DSP cards. Come and create several cards using the Jolly Holiday DSP from the big catalog. I provide all the ideas, embellishments, adhesive, and extras. Cost is $15 and that includes getting to take home the entire stack of paper that is leftover. If you have ever been to one of these classes you know...there is tons leftover to do more at home.

December 15th, Wednesday, at 7:30pm we are creating tags to attach to those neighborhood christmas gifts you need to pass out. We will be using the 2 Tags Die and making 12 different tags that will spice up any gift. Cost is $8 and that covers all supplies.

If you have any questions about the December classes you just need to ask. If you can't make it to the class on Wednesday night we can do a kit in the mail, or a kit to go. There is always the option to make a date for us to get together at my place and do them together as well.

Happy Stamping!


Birthday Cards and Christmas wishes

I had a few birthdays this week. My cute upline, Laura Widdison, had her big 30 this past week (eeks! that means I will be 30 in a few months!). Her husband did the cutest thing for her. He hacked her email and got all her customers and friends to send a card on the same day. She ended up getting over 100 cards in her mailbox on her birthday. It was sooo sweet of Dirk. Extra points go to him for thinking of the idea and then implementing it perfectly. This is the card that I sent to her.
My brother has a birthday tomorrow and I created this card just for him.

I found out the my NEW brother in law has a birthday next week, so I better get cracking on a card for him too. I will post what I come up with when I come up with it! lol

I completed my own christmas cards and the cards that my brother ordered from me. I have to say, I LOVE the ones that I came up with for him. The Embossed snowflakes with glitter on top was just the right thing for a happy holiday. For mine...I did a great spinner card. The ornament attached spins along the opening with the Merry Christmas in it. It is fun and I think it will be something that my family hasn't seen before.
There is still time to order Christmas cards for yourself. I can put a kit together for you to assemble them yourself, or I can do it for you. You friends and family would be delighted to open a handmade card from you!

Happy Stamping!
