He’s making a list…

Are you on Santa’s naughty or nice list this year? Me? I don’t know… it might be too early to tell! lol. This is another card that the crew at my Holiday Card Class earlier this week got to make. The Santa is from a tried and true favorite — Jolliest Time of Year. I’m not sure but I may be getting sick of Christmas already! Too bad for me as I’ve still got a ways to go before I can pack up the holiday until next year. It’s funny because I always gripe when I go into a store and they have Halloween items out in late August, or Christmas in early October or Valentine’s Day in December — but guess what? I do the same thing! Well, in my defense… if folks want to hand-stamp a special holiday card they need to order supplies in advance — so therefore, I need to have samples done in advance! You see? Don’t blame me… it’s an occupational hazard I guess. Hope you are having a great week. I had the best two days today and yesterday — First, I was off from work both days and I had a stamping

Sending Christmas Cards….

Just a quick stop today to show off another one of the cards from tonights Holiday Card Class. I’ve got a full house attending tonight so I’m sure it will be lots of fun! This card is not your traditional Holiday Card, but I really like it. Rather simple, but cute. Who says you can’t use hearts on a Christmas card? This is a busy week for me with tonights class the first of three events! Of course, I’m not done planning the other two yet (I only finished planning tonights this morning!) — some things will never change — even though I say I’m going to stop procrastinating. Maybe I’ll stop tomorrow!

Dang technology…

I had planned on showing you some of the other pre-made scrapbook pages I made for a customer, but alas technology is against me. For whatever reason, the three other pages I took pictures of are fine on my computer, but when I load into blogger they turn sideways — it’s driving me nuts! So sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to show them to you (I only have the one picture and I’ve already given the pages to their new owner). So, instead today I am sharing a full sneak peek of a card from next week’s holiday card class. I showed a glimpse of it the other day, but this is the full card. Isn’t it cute? This is an old stamp set called “Punch Pals” — I thought I’d pull out an oldie, but goodie. There are still a couple of spots left for next week if you are interested… we’re getting together at 6 p.m. at the Chatham Community Center and will make 10 cards (2 each of 5 designs) for $18. Supplies for this card are simple: Old Olive Cardstock, Basic Black Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock; Punch Pals Stamp Set and Teeny Tiny Wishes;

Productivity and a peek…

So do you ever have a day off where you just are NOT productive. You try, but…. Nothing! That was me today. It started with a startling awakening this morning when the heat kicked on for the first time… what? Already?? It only came on and then off right away. I think that was probably at about 7 a.m. So I rolled over and went back to sleep — it is my day off afterall. Well, I didn’t get up until 9:10 — lazy, lazy girl (hey, my bed was comfy!). But then I just couldn’t get myself moving… I did my usual routine… e-mails, blogs, breakfast… then nothing. Monday when I was off I was SOOO productive so I guess it’s not all that bad except for the fact that I have three events next week and 8 events in November! Got to get my butt in gear!! Anyway, this little cutie snowman is a sneak peek at one of the cards from my holiday card class next week. Can you believe I have all 5 cards designed a whole week before I need them?? Shocking huh? Anyway, I think the cards came out really cute and that those

More holiday cards….

Here’s another card we made in my holiday card class last week (if you get my e-newsletter, you’ve already seen this card. If you would like to receive my e-newsletter sign up in the box to the right). This stamp set is called Angelic Joy and I embossed the angel image with white embossing powder. I think this stamp set works really well with heat embossing. If you’d like to join us and make 10 holiday cards, I still have space for my Oct. 19 class at the Chatham Community Center. This card also uses the square lattice embossing folder for the Big Shot — I LOVE those embossing folders — they make such an impact. I got the idea for this card from a recent card swap I did with fellow demonstrators. The demonstrator that designed it (Thanks Sharon Cline) used a different stamp set, but the same design. I think it is simple, but elegant. Here is another card using the same Angelic Joy stamp set. This time a heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. It’s actually a similar card layout, but very different look (or at least I think so 🙂 Well, that’s all for
