International Scrapbooking Day

International Scrapbooking Day is on Wednesday March the 1st 2017 and to Celebrate we are going to do some Scrapbooking projects with Project Life on Saturday March 4th from 1 pm to 4 pm.  Each class attendee will get three Project Life Scrapbook pages and can use my pens, makers, punches, labels and two Card Collections to create the pages. The pages measure 6"x 8" and can fit in the 6"x 8" Project Life Album. All you would need to bring is your photos, a paper trimmer and $15 for the class. Through the afternoon we will play some fun games, with great prizes to win.  This class is limited to 8 attendees.  Here are a few pages I made.....

     



Please e-mail me to sign up by Monday February 20th.  Thank you,

Excitement in the The New Year!!!

It has been a very exciting 2017 so far, I have had lots of new customers, lots of new class attendees and lots of fun playing with the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and paper! On Saturday January 7th we Celebrated the New Catalogue with a Release Party, all the attendees had so much fun seeing my samples, looking at and buying new products,  It was great to hear the excitement in the room!

I started the year off with a card class called Sale-A-Bration of Beauty.  I wanted everyone to experience the items that you could get for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration flyer when you bought $60 of product ( before taxes and shipping).  We made these three cards...




I decided to add a new class to my schedule in February called Our Best Friends Card Class.  We have a lot of great pet stamp sets in our Catalogue and thought this would be great subject matter since my class attendees always talk about their pets.  We made the three cards below...




Thank you to all my customers and class attendees you have made the start of 2017 perfect and I hope this excitement continues through out the year.

Party Time in September and October!!!


We started the party off in September with the Blow Out The Candles Card Class on Saturday September 10th and Monday September 12.  We had a wonderful time making the three cards posted below.  The ladies loved that we used the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (on page 172 in the June 1 2016 to May 31 2017 Catalogue) and almost everyone bought a pack.  







    
In our town of Kitchener Ontario, October  is always a party month since we celebrate Oktoberfest!! October first is also World Card Making Day so we celebrated by participating in a Kit Class.   We used the Oh Happy Day Card Kit and the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit (on page 6, 7, 8, 9 of the June 1 2016 to the May 31 2017 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.)    
  

     
We also celebrated in October by participating in a Stamp-A-Stack.  People love the opportunity to get their Christmas cards finished in one class.   The class was held on Saturday October 15th and we made three cards each of the four designs posted below.  The ladies did very well as they had to get 12 cards finished in four hours, they were in a bit of a rush but they did a beautiful job on their cards.   





Thank you to all the ladies who filled up my September and October classes! I can not wait to create with you all again in November.

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,
