Stamp 6 Workshop, Bottle Christmas Tags, Designer Series Paper Tile Coasters and Beautiful Swaps!


Hi, Stampers!

What a great week we've had with a Stamp 6 Christmas Cards Workshop and our regularly scheduled classes in Viera, Titusville and Cocoa Beach!  Thank you to all of my cheerful, helpful, fun and talented stampers.  I love this hobby because brand new students can feel like pros by the end of their first class!

Below you see a few pictures from our Stamp 6 Christmas Cards Workshop.  Out of the table chaos came some beautiful cards!  Thank you to all of my sweet participants!
   

Here are the gals at Table 3 making their magic!
Here is table 2 hard at work.


Here is our group in the classroom of the Art Gallery of Viera, a wonderful place to meet and stamp!!


One of this week's projects was a set of tile coasters, covered in Candy Cane Lane and This Christmas Designer Series Papers.  I love ModgePodge!!
Here are the other 2 projects for our Cocoa Beach Stampers.  We had a great time yesterday with lots of giggles and Christmas treats too! 
 Her are beautiful swaps from the Cocoa Beach Library.  Aren't they terrific?  Thank you, Parker, Colette and Aubrey!  I love all of your pretty details and "extras".  Gojus!!!

Our Titusville Swappers made these beautiful cards.  I think they were all on the same wavelength!!  Thank you, Susan, Brenda and Patricia!  So pretty!!

Time to get back to the stamp room and plan for our next fun classes next week!
Have a wonderful week and make time to use your creativity!
Stampin' Hugs!

Gold Hanging Stocking, Candy Cane Lane Cookie Jar and Merry Musical Mice!

Hello, Stampers!

It's been a wonderful week for stamping!  In addition to 3 classes and one workshop, I ended the week on Friday with a Stamp 6 Christmas Cards workshop!  We made 2 each of the following 3 designs, had great snacks (Thank you, attendees!) and had a big drawing/giveaway of ribbons, baker's twines, stamp sets and kits!

Here is what we made.  First is our gold hanging stocking card. Gold and Whisper White are my two favorite Christmas colors!  We used Gold Foil paper, Gold Glitter sheets, gold twine and Encore Gold Ink!  This card goes together easily once everything is punched out!  :-)
 Next is our waaaaay cute Candy Cane Lane Cookie Jar card!  I am so hooked on this Designer Series Paper.  I have used it for everything and I continue to do so, as you'll see below!  Such a fun card--definitely for a very special recipient!
 Having been a music teacher for more than 30 years, I can't resist anything with a music staff!  I love the little mice (I used to collect Charming Tales figurines.  Now I just collect Stampin' Up products. LOL)  The Cherry Cobbler and Black cardstocks just set everything off!!

I left our Stamp 6 Workshop and drove directly to a big box hardware store in search of 4x4 tiles for our coaster project.  (They are not as easy to find these days as you might think!!)  These are actually 4 1/4" squares but it works out fine with 4"x 4" tiles because you have that nice 1/4" border.  A little ModgePodge and little felt "feet" and you have it!


Have a wonderful week of stamping and creativity!!  Check out the supplies below.  You can find many of them on sale at our end of the year Clearance Sale!  Find them all by clicking HERE!
