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.

May Classes

The May classes have already happened but I wanted to post the projects for anyone who might have missed the classes and need to see the layout and cards.  It was a fun class using new product from the latest mini catalog which went live May 1st.

The layout was made using the new Jack paper.  Very little stamping and the Great Outdoors was cut on the cricut. 

This 5x7 card was made using the May stamp of the month.
Thin cuts are all the rage and check out this cute llama.

These 3x3 cards were cut out using the circut and you can see the different sayings in each card

Card Making Workshop

I will be offering three card making workshops the weekend of April 22nd, 23rd and 24th.  All the workshops will be held from 10am-noon.  You can order and make as many packets as you want.  There are four paper packs to choose from but all the cards will have the same design.  These would make great gifts for Mother's Day, sister, aunt, best friend or even yourself!!  The first kit is $20 which includes four cards (all pieces cut and stamped), envelopes, 5x7 flip flap with Velcro, package of 3D thin tape and a package of bling.  Each package after the first one will be $10 (no 3D tape or bling in the $10 pack).  Special: if you purchase 4 packs ($50 total) you get another package of bling for free.  Here are the cards we will be making.  If you are interested in attending please let me know.

April Classes

The April classes will be coming up this weekend-April 8-9-10 so you still have time to come make these projects with us.  April will be the last chance to order product out of the mini catalog so be sure not to miss out on any paper packs, stickers, embellishments or thin cuts before they are retired.  Here are the projects we will be making:

Using the Sugar Rush paper pack we will make this bright two page layout.  Everyone has a birthday so this layout would be great to use for those fun photos.
The stamp of the month-- Flock Together S1704-- showcases these cute Quail.  You will daub the background onto the paper to create a unique look.

This cute card is made with the Sugar Rush paper pack too.  We also used the thin cuts that coordinate with the stamp set to make the fun donuts.  The colors in this paper pack are so bright and vibrant.
The last card we will make this month again shows the wonderful thin cuts that we sell.  These are great because you can cut the pieces out, stamp on them and create a fun card (or layout).

The March classes will be the weekend of the 11th-12th and 13th.  All classes will be making the same projects.  Here are samples of what we will be making.  If you would like to attend a class let me know--everyone is welcome.

Using the Some Kind of Wonderful paper pack and the Dreamin Big stamp set you will make this colorful layout to add those spring or summer photos to.

The stamp of the month Tea-rrific showcases these cute tea cups and sayings.

This fun card demonstrates how you can random stamp your own background.

Using the "M" size Colorado stamp (all 50 states are available) here is a unique card to send to your friends out of state to let them know somebody from Colorado is thinking about them.
