June Party Projects are My Favorite

The first month inside a new Stampin’ Up! catalog can be overwhelming for me.  What new stamp sets or accessories do I start playing with first to show my seasoned customers what is new?  That is always a difficult question.  This year I first dove into the new In Color, Lemon Lime Twist…it’s a game changer, folks.  This new Stampin’ Up! color is going to make our color palette invigorated!  Check out the cards we made at parties this month.

Cards That Spring – Card Buffet Class

Beautiful You
The April showers this weekend are bringing the hope for beautiful growing plants and flowers to come, and also giving me the perfect opportunity to plan some Spring cards for you!  The month of May always seems to have lots of events that need cards and gifts to give: Mother’s Day, Graduations, Weddings, Baby Showers and more! 
Come and make a bunch or a few cards that SPRING! Spring colors, spring flowers and cards that literally spring! Don’t miss this fun opportunity to make some cards for the important people in your life and stock up on all the cards you need. You will get to choose which cards you want to make depending on what you need…birthday, wedding, graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and baby.
In addition, this card class is slightly different than my usual card buffet offering because I have created 5 of the card projects to be cards that move, pop or “spring”!  See what I did there?  These five card projects will come with written directions/pictures and can be purchased as a kit if you cannot come to class to make them.  Fun, right?

On Friday, May 5th come between 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Register Now!
On Saturday, May 6th come between 9:00 am – 1:00 pm –  Register Now!

See you at class!

Beat the Winter Blues Card Buffet Class

Two ways to beat the winter blues are to stimulate your brain and do something for others. Creating something beautiful is a great way to stimulate your brain with color & texture and the joy of making something from scratch. Even better when you are creating cards because you also get to give them away which provides beauty, joy and love to others!!! 

My class this week features cards for all occasions including some non-traditional  Valentine’s Day cards.Check out 10 card designs for this week’s class!

New Year, New Fun!

I love the first week of the new year when there is time to ponder and plan the fun that awaits me in the months ahead. Part of that planning includes setting up a new personal planner and getting important dates on the calendar, and I absolutely love creating my own desk calendar to use!

I created the images for my desktop calendar using the Project Life app then printed as photos that fit inside this mailable calendar holder. So easy! All of my Stampin’ Up! customers who have supported my business in the previous year get a calendar from me with a coupon included inside!!!

Place an online order with me this month and you can have a calendar of your own too!

Santa’s (stamping) Workshop Finally Hard at Work

Every year, the week before Christmas as I’m scrambling around making sure I’m not forgetting anyone on my list, I promise myself I won’t wait until the final week before Christmas to kick into gear.  “Start sooner,”  I plead!  “Plan further ahead,” I beg to myself!  But the truth is, I love the last minute scurry, and getting crafty with my packaging and gifts is something that helps me feel the Christmas spirit most!  So here are the projects I am cramming into this week!  Enjoy! Do you need some last minute magic projects like you see here?  Email me for help!
