February Classes are right around the corner

The February classes will be the 14th, 15th and 16th because I will just be getting back from Hawaii.  Thanks to all my wonderful friends and customers that helped me earn this wonderful trip.  Here are the projects we will be creating in February.

This cute layout is made using the Brushed Workshop on the Go.   The green trim around the edges was cut out using the Artbooking cricut cartridge.  We will also be using the green washi tape to add some pizazz!

The stamp of the month--S1502 A Happy Hello is made on a 5x7 card.  The parts and pieces are stamped, cut and arranged on the card.  The base of the card is our Kraft paper.

This cute birthday card was taken from the sample out of our Seasonal Expressions catalog (page 15) using the stamp set C1608 Brushstrokes.

"M" size stamp sets are perfect for our 3x3 cards.  This cute little cards can be added to a present or gift bag with a perfect note for that special person.  This stamp is M1051 Wish and can be purchased for only $2.95

The January classes are almost upon us so here is a look at the projects we will be doing.  With the release of the new Seasonal Expressions catalog we will be using some of the new paper packs and stamp sets from it.  The two page layout is using the Workshop on the Go Hopscotch.  This paper pack is so bright combining lots of fun colors.

This month the stamp of the month card is a swing card from the exclusive Close To My Heart cricut cartridge Artfully Sent.  Just in time for Valentine's Day the stamp of the month-- S1501 This Moment-- is perfect.

For a limited time only you can purchase this stamp set-- C1617 You're the Bomb and $3.00 from each set will go directly to Operation Smile.  How great is that that you get this fun stamp set and help out a child.


 Being that Valentine's Day is just around the corner I decided to spice up the monthly 3x3 cards with this cute stamp set-- B1470 Love ya Silly.  Everybody loves a little monster now and then.

The December classes were split this year because of a craft fair I was in, but the gals still had a lot of fun.  Here are the projects we did this year in December.  The layout was made using the Yuletide Workshop on the Go:
This layout is perfect to add those Christmas photos you just took!!

The stamp of the month S1412 Cutie Pie was created on a 4 1/2 x 41/2 card using the quilt technique.  Everyone has a birthday and this one would be fun to give to that special person in your life.

Each month I am trying to feature a card made using our new Artfully Sent cricut cartridge (exclusive to Close To My Heart).  There are so many fun cards that you can create in just minutes.  This owl card used the stamp set C1596 Happy Hexagons and is one of the many pocket cards you can make from the cartridge.

Each month we also make 3x3 cards which are so perfect to add to a gift bag or package.  These were made using B1438 Banner Wishes.  We also sell three different border punches, so each card shows a sample of the punches.

Well the New Year is upon us and with it the cold and snow here in Colorado!  I am already aching for the warmer weather, but that is still months away.  I will try and do better this year on my blog posting projects and workshops.  Here are the pictures from our Christmas card workshop we did earlier in the year.

We had a good turnout for the class and the gals had a great time putting them together.
