Cancellation Policy

I am now starting a cancellation policy for my Classes. The cancellation policy will help me with the loss of supplies when class attendees are unable to come.  I will need at least four days notice of cancellation so that would mean Wednesday for the Saturday Class and Friday for the Monday Class.  This will allow me time to try to get someone to replace the spot.  If I do not get four days notice you will have to pay the $10 class fee.  Sorry for any inconvenience but I am losing many customers, supplies, and prep time when class attendees do not show up. Thank you for reviewing this policy and I hope to see you at my next card class.

New Catalogue Means Fun New Cards!!!!

June has been a huge month of change for me any many of my friends, co-workers and family.  First I had to say goodbye to my friend Nicole who moved back to her home town in Newfoundland, There are many icebergs in Newfoundland in June that is why I made her his  appropriate card.  I hope she continues her wonderful creativity with her new Stampin' Up! products.   

In June I also went to an engagement party for my co-worker April and made her this Congratulations card made from on of my favorite retired stamp sets. 

Last but not least I made a card for one of my co-workers Sarah who I miss so much.  I used a new In-Color Flirty Flamingo on her card and a new textured Impression Embossing Folder called Floral Affection.     

The new Find Your Inspiration Catalogue running from June 1st 2016 to May 31 2016 has totally inspired me to use new products from Stampin' Up!.  My Buzzing Bumble Bee Card Class that will take place on July 16 and July 18 2016 uses many new products.  

For the first card I decided to use the new Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (page 174) and the Touches of Texture Stamp set (page 141). 
The second card for this class I decided to use the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set (page 146) and the new Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 172).   This paper is great to use with Stamping Sponges, Sponge Dauber and Sponge Brayer  (page 180).
The third card for this class I used Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (page 172), the Shooing Star Stamp Set and the Sliding Star Framelits Dies (page 91).   This set is so much fun with all the movement!  

There are great benefits for those who host a Stampin' Up! party including the host-only items on page 198 to 201 of the Catalogue. I used the Hostess set called Love You Lots to display the new In-Colors (page 199 and 168).  I also used the new 3/8" Ruched ribbon in the new In-Colors (page 178). Here they come....
Flirty Flamingo!
                                        Emerald Envy!
                                        Peekaboo Peach!
                                         Sweet Sugarplum!
                                          Dapper Denim!! 
                                 From the Land to Sea stamp set!

I then decided to make Masculine cards using the new In-Colors and the stamp set Traveler (page 116 and 169).     

                                          Dapper Denim! 
                                                               Flirty Flamingo! 
 Emerald Envy!
                                                               Peekaboo Peach!
                                                             Sweet Sugarplum!

The new Stampin' Up! Catalogue is so much fun and I can not wait until my next order comes in so I can experiment with even more great products.

Thanks for enjoying my cards,
