Recent Card Making Class Projects!

 Hi, Stampers!

Here are some recent cards that we've made in our classes!  The first, our "Joy" card may look familiar!  My inspiration is the card on page 32 of the Holiday Catalog.  Quick, easy and oh so cute!!

I don't use my Washi Tape often enough, but here is a great idea that features more Washi and less stamping!  (One of my students inspired me to get out the Washi Tape basket!!)  Another quick and easy card.

We made this card a couple of weeks ago and I'm pretty sure that I totally CASE'd a Brian King card ( .  He is well known for his clean and simple cards with great pops of color.  We used Stamp 'n Write Markers to color a few of the little hearts on our Designer Series Paper!

Thank you for stopping by and happy stampin'!!

Beautiful Cards and a Banner From Friends!

Hi, Everyone!

Well, this past week I took a page from my husband's book and had a week long birthday celebration!  Starting with beautiful cards from my Monday stamping students and a great cake (thank you, Joan!) to a wonderful birthday dinner at Dijon's, gifts and cards from my daughters and their families on Thanksgiving, Sunday brunch and then a great Alaskan salmon dinner with Nate's sons and their families!  Wow!  Too fun!  And then there were the boxes of fun gifts from my brother Frank and his wife and our friends, Linda (Downline) and Bruce (including my official "70" shirt and a cute wine shirt, a Total Wine gift card --Am I getting a reputation????, delicious Hartville, Ohio dark chocolates and Linda's beautiful banner!)

Here are some of the pretties from friends and family!

Linda, my good friend and downline, made this beautiful Thanksgiving card for us.
This pretty card is from my AGOV am gal, Jane.  Jane puts me to shame!  She never misses a holiday and she does beautiful detail work!

Here's a lovely card using one of my favorite stamp sets, World of Dreams.  Thank you, Debby!!

Here is another great card from our AGOV songbird, Nancy!  Thank you for all of your sweet tunes and this lovely card, friend!!

My terrific downline, Linda, made this beeeeeyoooooteeeeeful card using the wonderfully popular Woodland TIEF!  This is a super amazing card!!

My sister-in-law, Cindy, is really flexing her creative since she retired!  I love her colors and her coloring.  Such a fun card!!!

Here is the amazing banner that Linda sent to me!  Such wonderful detail!!!  I love it!  (Nate hung it up.  I'm sorry it's not a little more spaced.  :-)  He gets "A" for effort though!  Thank you, Linda!  Can't wait to see you in Salt Lake City!!!

Time to clear away the birthday "shrine" on the kitchen island!
Thanks to all for your good wishes!!

Cottage Greetings Cards Workshop! Space is limited!!


Hi, Stampers!

I hope this, once again, finds you happy, healthy and finding time for your creative pursuits!

It's time to plan some fun stamping of the kit workshop variety, where you can create, relax and visit.  Just what we'll need by the time December 16 rolls around.
So plan a little shopping and lunch at the Shoppes of Viera on December 16 and then join us for our Cottage Greetings Workshop at The Art Gallery of Viera from 1:30-3:30 pm!  A perfect balance if you ask me!  :-)  The kit makes a total of 15 cards with envelopes.

Price of the workshop is $20 (at cost) and you can add the pretty Cottage Greetings stamp set  for a total of $36. My stamp set will be available for you to use at the stamping station.

**You may pay at the workshop but if you are unable to attend, I would kindly ask that you take delivery of any supplies you've ordered for the workshop. Thank you! :)

If you would like to have your own stamp pads, they are Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay and they may be added on to your order for $7.50 each.  

Please RSVP by email before the deadline of Monday, December 7, when kits will be ordered.

Otherwise, all you will need to bring is your own adhesive (Dimensionals are included in the kit.) and (optional) a Bermuda Bay and Delightful Dijon Stamp Pads.  (You can always use my stamp pads at the stamping station.)

I hope to see you there!!

OnStage and CentreStage!

Wow!  It takes forever for my mail to receive pix from my phone!  What is that????  Anyway, finally, here are some snaps from last weekend's festivities!  I hope my whole team can go one of these days!!
Here is the beautiful table at Friday evening's dinner!  Beautiful fresh bouquets and a lovely dinner! 
I met a sweet gal and fellow demonstrator, Frances Wagner.  Frances is a demo from Vero Beach!  It's so fun to make new friends!!

And here are Frances and me!!

Here are my "m'Donnas", 2 of my local downline gals and me!  We had a completely fabulous time, including a stroll by the water to Channelside for lunch on Friday. 

Happy stampin', everyone!!

Monday's Cardmaking at the Gallery! Snow Place and Watercolor Words!

Hey, Stampers!  I just love these 2 stamp sets!  We stamped all of our Snow Place images on a 4 1/4" X 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock so that we could cut the images all at one time with our Snow Friends Framelits!  We even did the hands at the same time!
Totally cute, don't you think?

We actually finished our first card much sooner than I thought and no one was the worse for the wear of 13 stamps and 10 framelits!  I planned a super cute/super easy greeting card for project #2.  
It turned out so well that we replicated it using Lost Lagoon rather than Cherry Cobbler.  So many color possibilities!!

Thank you for stopping by!  I treasure your comments!!
