Birthday Card Class

I finally have a card class based on birthdays for you!  I hope you love them as much as I do.  We'll be using my most favorite tool of all, the Big Shot!  We'll be doing some die cutting, dry embossing, and paper piercing.  The class will include all of your supplies, with an added bonus of taking home the remainder of 1/2 a container of SU's Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons.  I love these new clear buttons, they go with absolutely everything!  You will be making 4 different cards and here they are in all their cuteness!


The class fee is $15.00 for all 4 cards and the buttons, and will be held on Monday, September 10th at 6 p.m.  I will need your RSVP by Noon this Friday, August 31st.

Banner Sneak Peak

As most of you already know, I have been deep in the thralls of preparing for the BIG stamping weekend!  I've also been neglecting you all so terribly, I didn't realize it had been SO long since I've posted.  So sorry!
So, this is the first letter of my Create banner, it's the newest addition to my stampin' space.  I haven't decided if I'm going to draw it out and just show one letter at a time, or if you'll get to see the rest of it at once ; ).  I used a paper pack from My Mind's Eye, called Lost & Found Blush.  I love the little 6 x 6 paper packs for these types of projects.  You have a lot of different patterns to choose from and can usually do most of the project from one pack. The letter itself is from another paper pack from My Mind's Eye as well.  The tag is from Papertrey Ink, and the border die is from PTI.  As you can see my Big Shot gave me a lot of love for this one!

Inspirtational Art

Britt's birthday was Thursday, and after going to visit her for her graduation, I realized she really needed some artwork for her walls!  I had seen a new set of stamps at Taylored Expressions, with 3 different words, Grace, Faith, and Hope.  I wanted to make it into wall art, so set about figuring out how to make a set of 3 pieces.  This is my original inspiration:
And was translated to this:
I had found a display frame at Michael's which held a CD and the cover art for the CD.  It measured 6 1/2" x 12".  I needed a frame which would allow me to use 12 x 12 paper for the background, and this fit the bill!  I cut the letters using my Sans Serif dies for my Big Shot, and used the oh so cool Twitterpated Designer Papers!  I used my dimensionals under the letters, but since the frames were not meant for a lot of dimension, any embellishments had to be added to the top of the glass.  I die cut some butterflies and daisies for a little extra somethin'!  This was a super easy project, and pretty quick to do once I had decided how to lay it all out.  Here is the rest of the set.

Loopy Flower and the fantastic Twitterpated paper!

Obviously my cropping did not take before it uploaded, sorry!  So, my stamp club gals know that this is one of my new favorite combos, and how much I love this pattern paper.  The flower is made with a die from Papertrey Ink, because I just can't help myself from purchasing non-Stampin-Up items!  What can I say, a girl has to shop!  When you're chunky it's not fun to buy clothes, but new stamp stuff always fits!!!  Ok, back to the card!  As I was saying the flower is made with the loopy flower die, the bottom petals are Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and the second layer is the prettiest pattern in the Twitterpated package ; ).  I added a button and some twine to finish it off.  The background is Baja Breeze, and I used Versamark ink to add a background with a stamp from Creative Elements, and then a little Happy Birthday to complete it.  You may just see a little class coming soon with this flower, possibly in fabric, hmmmm, that's a good idea!  Enjoy!

Where have I been?!!

First of all, let me apologize for being MIA here on the ol blog!  I have no excuse, well actually I have lots of excuses, but it doesn't really matter now does it?!  I'm hoping to do a much better job of updating things and keeping those of you who look, actually interested.  I do have a card class that I'm hoping to get pics uploaded tonight.  I had taken some pictures, but felt the cards need a bit of tweaking before they were worthy of your perusal!  Ok, enough of this and on to something better!  Oh, and thanks for hanging in there with me!
