This month for April, class members had the option for two ways to do their layouts and a fun peek-a-boo card.  Everyone enjoyed doing the peek-a-boo card and felt so proud when they put it together and it actually worked!!  Here is what we did:

Using Chelsea Gardens paper I created two different theme layouts using the same design.  One for Easter pictures and another for spring pictures.

The stamp of the month had some pretty big words so we made a 5x7 card for this card.  This stamp set would be great on layouts too.

Here is the peek-a-boo card that is easier to make than it looks and will WOW the person who receives it.

The last card everyone made was a simple but elegant card.

The March classes will be the weekend of the 10th-11th-12th and everyone is welcome.  Here are the projects we will be creating in March.

 Winter has finally hit Colorado, so here is a layout to help us think of warmer times--Hello Spring.
The letters were cut using the thin cuts Block Alphabet --Z3386.  These letters are so quick and easy to use to make all sorts of titles for layouts or words for cards.

 The Stamp of the Month S1803 Birthday Time is a must have for those who are card makers, but would also be great for those birthday layouts.  Everyone has a birthday and who doesn't like to get a homemade card.

 Butterflies always make people happy and these were made using the Chelsea Gardens paper and the stamp set C1709 Chelsea Gardens-Cardmaking. The butterflies, flowers and leaves were cut out using the thin cuts, but because this set was so popular the thin cuts have sold out.

B1587 Zesty Best stamp set was used for this card.  Don't send those emails or texts when someone does something great--a handmade card is so much better.


I must apologize for being absent so long on my blog.  Fixing up a house for five months, classes, holidays and a fantastic trip to Thailand all got in the way.  I want to share the projects we did in February for anyone who might have missed the class but have the packets and want to put them together.

Using some of the Fundamentals paperpacks (which are going away) we made a layout that can be used for family events or Valentine pictures.

Here are two cards made using the February Stamp of the Month  S1802 Sunny Thoughts

This unique card also features Fundamentals using the stamp set A1192 Happy Heart.  This stamp set can be found in the big catalog and is available until July 2018.  It is also available in French and Spanish.

This card features the Stargazer paper pack and the B1557 Thanks a Million stamp set.

October classes will be the weekend of the 14th, 15th and 16th.  Remember there are two classes on Saturday (10am and 1:30pm), one on Sunday at 10am and two on Monday (11am and 6pm).  Here are the projects we will be doing in October:

This layout is a spooky one!  Using the new paper pack Cats & Bats along with the new thin cuts you will have a great layout to add your ghost and goblin pictures to.
It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner, but the stamp of the month S1710 Christmas Tunes is reminding us we are heading into the holiday season.
Cats & Bats thin cuts help create these fun cards.
Here are some bright 3x3 thank-you cards.

In past years I have done a Christmas card workshop in October, but this year I have chosen to do a Christmas layout workshop.  It will be the weekend of October 28/29 from 10am-2pm each day.  The cost of the workshop is $45 which will include the new paper pack Silver & Gold, coordinating cardstock, silver & gold complements, instructions, extra white cardstock and place photo here mats.  You will make 7- two page layouts.  The photos don't do justice to the actual layouts and these would look absolutely stunning with black and white photos.

This two page layout I actually use the left side for the first page and the right side for the last page.

Well the summer came and the summer went--now we are into a new card club season.  The September classes were a success and although we already had them, I am going to post the class projects.  New catalogs, stamps, paper packs, embellishments, ink colors and so much more.

To start the year off we did this fun layout using cut outs from the new cricut cartridge, paper from one of the new fundamental paper packs and there was no stamping.  Great layout to add those family summer photos!

Here are a couple samples of the stamp of the month Feel So Blessed S1709
These cards were made using one of our new embossing folders.
Our mini stamps sets are only $2.95 and look at the cute 3x3 cards you can make with them to add a personal note to a gift bag or present.

June Classes

The June classes will be coming up soon and it will be our final class for the summer.  We will start classes again in September with an open house in August.  This will be our celebration class with goodies and prizes for everyone.  Here are the projects we will be making.


This is our new paper pack No Worries.  This layout was made using paper and cut out sayings with no stamping at all.  This will be a fun layout for your summer pictures.
This card was made using the stamp of the month--Hello Lovely
Ah more thin cuts!!  Gotta love these as they make projects so quick and easy to make.
These 3x3 cards are also made using the thin cuts.
