Valentine's Day "Love" Frame & Triple Heart Easel Card

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  Hope you are all having a great day.  Today, I want to share with you the class that I offered to my customers the past few weeks.  I did a total of 4 classes and we made a "Love" frame using the chalkboard technique and we also made a Triple Heart Easel Card.  They were able to pick 1 frame (pink or white) that they would like to make.

Just a warning...this post will be loaded with pictures.  :-)   For this project, I used quite a few stamp sets (around 10 sets) and some of them are already retired.  I also used a few of the new goodies from the Spring and SAB catalogs.

In honor of Valentine's Day, I would like to do a Blog Candy for all of my blog readers.  I am giving away one of the frames used in this project.  All you have to do to enter is "follow" my blog (so you can get notified every time I update my blog) by clicking the link on the right sidebar and write a comment letting me know which frame you would like to get in case you are the lucky winner.  You have until Feb. 18 to enter and I will draw the winner on Feb. 19.

Again, Happy Valentine's Day to all of you and Good Luck on the drawing!

Thanks for stopping by...

Triple Time Stamping Christmas Card

Hi there friends!  My poor neglected blog was screaming to be updated.  It has been a while...  Can't believe how much time has flown by and now it's almost Christmas.  It's the time of year when we make the most cards for our friends and family so I want to share with you this very simple and easy to make card.

The technique is called Triple Time Stamping and it's been quite popular lately.  I used the new Snowflake Soiree Stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  It's one of the very first set I got when the catalog came out because I love Snowflakes.  If you need to make a lot of cards, this one is sure to be a pretty easy one to mass produce.

Inside of the Card

Supplies Used For This Project:

Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo

Ink:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, Whisper White (Craft Ink)

Accessories:  Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Vintage Faceted Designer's Buttons, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals

Stamp Sets:  Snowflake Soiree, Distressed Dots (Background Stamp)

To order all the supplies you need for these cards, please visit my online store  for your 24/7 shopping convenience.

Thank You for stopping by my blog....

Clear Christmas Cards in a Box Class

Hello December!!!  Can't believe that this is my first post in December.  I had been sooo very busy the last few weeks trying to finish up all my Stamp Club Meetings and classes early so that I can tend to personal stuff before Christmas is here.  So, Friday was my last club meeting and now I am able to post again. 

Today I want to share with you the Clear Christmas Cards in a Box Class that I offered the last week of November.  It was a big hit!  I was actually so surprised at how many people signed up to take the class.  The class comes with 6 Clear Cards, 6 matching envelopes and the box.  I charged $25 for the class if it was pre-paid or $30 at the door.   Just a warning...this post will be picture heavy so keep scrolling down!

I used the Treat Box that you can find on the Clearance Rack, cut the top off and made the lid for it using cardstock and Letters To Santa Designer Series Paper.

Card 2

Card 3       

Card 4
Card 5

Card 6
I used the Window Sheets for the cards and also taught different techniques like how to color the rhinestones, dry embossing with the Big Shot, Embossing with the heat gun, using Smooch spray, distressing and a lot of other cool stuff.  

I am taking a break from classes in December but will be back for more classes in January.  Hope you like what I shared with you today!
