New Class! Card Buffet Coming in January

Card Buffet is coming this January!  This is the first in a series of posts about my new classes beginning in January.  Card Buffet will be offered live twice a month.  If you are looking to join in the fun, but live too far away – stay tuned.  I will announce many virtual opportunities for you in January.

This is just one of the five card designs that will be offered at Card Buffet in January.  At class variations will be offered with different papers from the Cupcakes and Carousels pack as well as the Baker's Twine bow.

Treat Holders for Valentine’s Day!


We had a great time at the January Stamp Class making treat holders for Valentine's and cards for Valentine's and from the Sale-a-Bration FREE Items. The first treat holder was made from our fun Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Pack in combination with the Language of Love stamp set. The second one was made with the fun Sweetheart Treat Bag Kit – plus a little more.

The Sweetheart Treat Bag Kit comes with everything pictured below except the “love banner”.  That was made with the new Banner Punch and Banner Blast Stamp Set.  The bags, striped tags and Pool Party Baker's Twine are all included for just $4.95!

Two Fun Card Parties!

card party fun friends family
We had a great time at Lori's house on Saturday afternoon.  Lori hosted a Card Party where everyone made four different cards for just $10.  The cards were simple and fit into many upcoming occasions.  We got to use the Big Shot with embossing folders and framelits.  We also had fun using colors that will soon be gone – sigh.

The next day I emailed everyone at the part a link to a special web page so they could see the projects again and have a list of supplies for each of them.  Everyone placed their orders over the next couple of days and Lori closed a great party on Monday evening. 

Here is the link to

Moving Forward on Monday

Happy Monday!  This week I'm highlighting the Moving Forward stamp set.  We will be using this at Card Class this month and you should have lots of ideas by Friday on how you can use this set and help some worthy families along the way.

When you purchase the Moving Foward stamp set (clear or wood) from the new catalog $3 will be donated to RMHC.  It's such an easy thing to do and a wonderfully versatile set that you will enjoy for a long time.

Today I used the sailboat stamp.  If you'd like to see another sample from today you can look at my facebook page (and like it while you're there!).  I will have another Facebook Giveaway later this week so be sure to watch for it.  You can ONLY win if you comment on the Giveaway and you
