May 2 page layout

This is the 2 page layout that I will be teaching at the Immanuel Crop on Friday May 16th.  If you aren't able to make it to the crop but would like this layout please let me know :)
The stars are from the retired stamp set "Simply Stars" from Stampin Up.  The stars are stamped in Pacific Point, Tangelo Twist, Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.  The balloons are made from the 1" circle and the word window punch(and the foot from the owl builder punch).

Stampin Up Blendabilities

I am super excited because I got a chance to play with my preorder from Stampin Up today!  I created a couple of cards and hope to get a few more done tonight! 
The flower is a new one called Blended Bloom and I colored it with the Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities(which are AWESOME and after I used the Rich Razzleberry ones I had to order a few more sets, I can't wait for the Costal Cabana and the Daffodil Delight ones to arrive!!!).  The sentiment is also from a new set called "Something to Say"!  I used Blackberrry Bliss for the base of my card, a sheet of DSP from the Moonlight stack and a 1 1/2 strip of Hello Honey(I am IN LOVE with the 2014-2016 incolors!!!)

Christmas Card Buffet

This year in place of a Christmas stamp a stack I am doing a card buffet...the great thing about the buffet is that you can create as many of each of the cards as you would like, instead of 4 of each of the cards like we have for the stamp a stack. With the buffet you will have a large selection of cards to choose from.  More cards may be added in the coming weeks but for right now these are your selections. 
Card #1 using island indigo and pool party paper

Card #2 using the stamp set Santa's List

Card #3 using the stamp set Snowflake Soiree

Card #4 using mosaic madness

Card #5 using the stamp set Joyful Christmas

Card #6 using the stamp set Ornament Keepsakes

Card #7 using the stamp set Snowflake Soiree

Card # 8 using the embossing folder Beautifully Baroque

Card #9 using the stamp set Lovely as a Tree

The buffet will be offered on October 12th and November 9th at the Cards and Scrap Crop and October 18th and 19th at the Scrapbook Ministry Crop.  It will also be offered 2 times at my house October 27th at 10am and October 29th at 7 PM.

The cost for the buffet is:
10 cards for $15
20 cards for $25
30 card or more just $1 each.

To sign up please email me at or (419)704-0848and please be sure to include which cards that you would like to make so that I can have the correct amount of supplies ready for each person :)

As always, if you love the cards but you can't make it to any of the classes I will be more than happy to create kits for you and either ship them to you for a small fee or arrange a time for us to meet so that you can get your supplies!  If you would rather not put the cards together to save yourself some time just let me know when you order and for $5 additional I will put your cards together so all you have to do is address your envelopes(you get great cards and save a bunch of time!!!)!

If you are looking for something different than I am offering for this buffet please let me know, I will be more than happy to create something custom for you :)

Cards and Scrap Crop Technique for August

The technique that we are going to be focusing on for August is "thumping".  Its a really cool stamping technique that combines ink pads and makers...Below are the pictures that we are going to be making...the class is $5 and will be held after lunch at the crop on August 17th.
This card was made using the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set, summer starfruit ink and colors from the brights collection.

This card was made using the swallowtail stamp, crumb cake ink and 2012-2014 incolors.

Regarding Dahlias winner and a new give away!!!

Since we are going on vacation I decided to draw the winner for the Regarding Dahlias stamp set a little early...the winner is Lisa Ertle!  Congratulations Lisa :)

The stamp set that I am giving away for August is four frames...its a cute little set and it coordinates with the decorative label punch :)  For every $25 in Stampin Up merchandise that you purchase from me your name will go in a drawing for this great set.  I will draw winners at the end of August :)
