'Twas a Few Days Before Christmas!


Hi, Gals!

Yes, we were busy with classes and fun through December 20!  I know there were many recipients of beautiful cards, tags and gift bags!!  You can see more of the pictures while listening to the golden tones of Michael Buble' by checking out the slideshow on my facebook account or by going to this YouTube link!

AM Art Gallery Stampers, Barb and Jane.
Mike and Jane.
We had time to make these beautiful embossed
vellum elegant gift tags.

PM Stampers, Joan, Debby and Sharon.

Our bags turned out beautifully!  Each had a
matching gift tag as well.

Titusville Art League Thursday stampers, Mary and Sami.  Darn,
I forgot to get the camera out before Patricia needed to leave!!

AGOV PM Stampers, Phyllis, Sharon and Debby.
My SOS Stamp Club.  Our club is 3 years old.
Instead of projects, for this meeting I served dinner and showed off some of the new projects.  We also had a handmade gift exchange!  It was a really lovely evening with Trudy, Barbara,
Claudia, Michelle, Elise, Vera, Donna and Alice.  We were
sorry to not have Susan and Cindy Lou with us!

I showed off all of the beautiful handmade cards that
we received this Christmas.  Fortunately, Barbara was able to show me how to use this lovely easel card with a votive glowing behind the stamped vellum in the oval cutout.  This card was from
my dear friend and fellow SU demo, Linda Williamson, who lives in North Carolina.

December was wonderful!!  Now we can look forward to the New Year AND the new Occasions Catalog AND 

Sale-A-Bration!!  Woo Hoo!!
Stay Creative!

Snowman and Hedgehog Gift Card Holder and Snowman Christmas Card

 Hey Everyone,

We are definitely in the Christmas spirit at the Art Gallery!  We braved the 80 degree temperatures (apologies to my Ohio and Arkansas relatives!!) and got our chill on!!
Here are our am stampers this week.  Regulars Mike, Barb,
Lori and Jane!  Many thanks to Jane for the adorable
candy Santa sleigh!  The grands and I will be making
those this weekend!!

Here are some of the gals' finished gift card holders!
Too cute and using the Best of Snow Stampin' Up stamps.


We also made this great snowman card using
a retired embossing folder (Floral Frame) and one of the Merry Minis punches.  Inside is the Warmth and Wonder Christmas tree and a pretty greeting.  (Should have photographed it!!)

Afternoon stampers Phyllis, Nancy, Joan B
and Joan O.  :-)
 Here's Sharon too!





Join us this coming Monday to make a 3-D Christmas Tree design gift bag, a matching tag plus two elegant tags!
Merry Christmas!!  (No classes on December 23 but we'll be back on Dec. 30!)

Cascade Card At TAL and Christmas Stampin' at The Oasis!

Hey Stampers!

We had a blast at the Titusville Art League creating the Cascade Card!  We even finished in less than 2 1/2 hours!  The results were just beautiful and I had a wonderful time with some lovely ladies.  Thanks to all for your can-do spirit and the fun time together!

We'll meet one last time this year on Thursday Dec. 19, from 
11 am-1 pm,  to create a couple of last minute Christmas projects--a gift bag and several extra specials tags!
Zi-Zi, Sami, Sharon, Jean and Patricia.
This was Zi-Zi's first stamp class but you would
never guess!  Zi-Zi finished first!!








The cards were similar but all different!
We also created a beautiful 5" x 7" envelope for
each card.  I was so impressed with the beautiful results!!
Stampin' At the Oasis With Alice and Judy
What can a girl do with a little paper and ink over 2 1/2 hours??
Lots!!!!!
Each of us made the 6 cards seen below and had a great time gnoshing and visiting!  Judy, on the right, was attending her first stamping class but she caught on really fast and made beautiful projects.  Alice is one of my SOS stampers and her cards were beautiful as well.  A good time was had by all!!
This shot shows the inside of our cards.  I'm a firm believer on stamping inside and out and creating a matching envelope for each card.
Our "quilted" card.  We used the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder to achieve our quilting effect.

Our "white on white" card featured Champagne Glimmer Paper accents.
Our befuddled little reindeer.  Too cute!
Thank you, Alice and Judy, for a
great workshop!!
See you soon!!
