Regatta layout workshop

Want to get some of your pictures into albums with not a lot of work on your part?  Here is your chance to make 6--2 page layouts in a few hours.  April 23rd, 24th or 25th (10am-1pm) I will be offering this workshop for only $35 (that is a little less than $3 a page!)  I do all the cutting for you, so bring LOTS of adhesive and get ready to create these layouts.  You can showcase summer activities, beach days, cruising, boating or so many other family vacations.  The price includes a regatta paper pack (pre-cut ahead of time), sticker pack and embellishments.  Bring your friends and come have some fun putting together these great layouts.


April classes

Spring is in the air, although there is always a chance for snow still here in Colorado.  The April classes will be the weekend of the 9th-10th-11th and there is always room for new guests to join us.  The Seasonal Expressions 1 will be retiring at the end of this month (April 30th) so time is running out for ordering all the cute paper, embellishments and stamps from it.  Here are the April class projects:



The stamp of the month S1604 Life in Pictures is perfect for those who love to take pictures.  Although we are making a pop-up card with it, using it for layouts would be perfect too.

Although the Georgie paper is great to use for babies and little ones, I chose to use it for a spring layout because I like the soft colors.  Spring is such a wonderful season as the weather warms and flowers begin to bloom.
Here is a beautiful card using the stamp set C1641 Springtime Wishes and the new thin cuts (unfortunately the thin cuts are no longer available but the stamp set is until April 30th).  This card would make a beautiful Mother's Day card, birthday card or all occasions card.
The 3x3 cards will be using the technique of making our own ink pad.  Using a wet wipe and three colors of re-inker you can create your own colorful ink pad.  This is the Sangria paper and I used three colors to match the bright colors in this paper.
We enjoyed our cruise and when I got back it was already time for the March classes.  Everyone had a good time making the cards and layouts.  Here are the projects we did in March.
This was such a bright fun layout this month using the Penelope paper pack and washi tape. The gals really liked the washi tape and had fun using it.

The stamp of the month S1603 Sunshine Birdies was a hit because everyone liked the little birdies.  The bird cage was cut out using a cricut cartridge and then cutting the center out exposing the bird inside.  This stamp set had some cute sayings.
This cute shaker card was made using our 2x2 flip flaps.  Isn't this such a cute stamp set A1180 Safari Ballet.  The giraffe and hippo are fun to color and add a special touch to your cards.
3x3 cards are always great for a gift bag and these were made using A1175 Pen Pals.
