Chicks, Chocolate & Cards Class

If you think the cards I post are cool and would like to learn more about how to make them, you are invited to my new Chicks, Chocolate & Cards class!

All of the cards will be pre-cut and pre-designed for you to stamp and assemble!  Class includes 6 cards, 2 each of three designs.  I will provide all the pre-cut pieces and accessories.  You just stamp and assemble.  Envelopes are included.  There will also be chocolate and soft drinks.  This class will require that you provide your own adhesive.  The class fee is $15.  If you bring a new stamping friend that I haven’t met, your class is 50% off!  Pre-payment is required.c3-Aug 2013


Cropping the Day Away

Today I hosted a crop at the Crofton Library.  I finished four double layouts, all using retired Stampin’ Up! papers.  I need to make some room for all the new papers available now!



There is an awesome sale this month going on where you can stock up on Stampin’ Up!’s newest Designer Series Papers!  Get your paper fix before the sale is finished.


Card: Finally!

I really hope you all enjoyed yesterday’s Hawaii Ink Blog Hop!  It was a ton of fun and there is a lot of talent in our group!

Here are some details on how I created yesterday’s hop card.

All About You

The base of the card is Whisper White cardstock.  I used Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper, which was carried over from last year’s catalog.  I am so glad that it was!  The colors are so much fun to play with.

The stamp set is new, and I am in love with it.  It has a lot of fun greetings, so the title of the set Really Good Greetings, is a really good name!

To make the flags, I used a square punch, eyeballed it so it would be lined up properly, and punched it out.  So simple!  I love this technique to create flags.
