Magic Monday's

Let’s get this holiday off to a good start! Join me in my home each Monday for what I like to call my Magic Monday’s.  Monday’s are usually pretty boring right? So I have designed these classes to hi-light some different techniques! 

Each class will be featured for two weeks, as my class size is very limited.  This Monday and next Monday are all about embossing techniques.  

I have created the cards below that are a good example of dry embossing and the other card (the dark blue one) is all about heat embossing. 

Hope to see you on Monday!! But don’t forget to RSVP!

My Swap for my InkDemo Sisters

As promised, this is the card that I made to swap with my stamping sisters at the big 25th Anniversary Celebration in Salt Lake City this year…It is so stinkin’ cute, I hope everyone that got one liked it!
I just fell in love with what I call peeper cards (there is probably another name for this type of card).  I really wanted to do some sort of cute card to just say hello to a friend! I kinda got carried away with the design on this one.  I had the hardest time getting that silly monkey to look like a monkey instead of a bear! For some reason every time I try to make punch art they all look like bears or some other creature that doesn’t even exist!!


 This is the outside
 
This is the inside!
 

If you are interested in learning how I created this card, just leave me a comment I just love comments!

Wow! I am so excited!  I went to the Annual Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City and I am pumped! It is the Stampin’ Up! 25th Year Anniversary and the party was hopping!! 
I want to share the cards I made for swapping with other demonstrators.  If you aren’t familiar with a card swap, it’s an opportunity for you to exchange cards with other people so that you can get some fresh ideas for cards that you might like to make.
So here goes! I made 5 different cards.  I knew from last year that I only have the focus to make 10 of a single card, so I ended up with a total of 50 cards to swap. In addition, I made another 30 to swap with the ladies from my demonstrator friends here in Oklahoma, but I will show that card in a later post!

If you are interested in learning how I created any of these cards, just leave me a comment, I love comments!.

Sorry

Well I finally made it back to Oklahoma!  It has been a rough couple of months and my mojo seemed to run out!  But I am back now and I'm trying to get my creative juices flowing again! I will be making several updates over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.  Stampin' Up! is coming out with new fresh products and ideas that I can't seem to keep! I am going to give it a try!

In the meantime, here is a card I made this morning! I'm not sure if I love it or not.  Let me hear your opinion



Blessings

Happy New Year!

Hi, I just want to wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year!

I have gotten behind again....Every time I think I am making forward progress, something happens and I am suddenly behind again. So I am going to be making a couple of New Years Resolutions and I want to ask you to keep me accountable!  So hear we go....in 2013 I resolve to:

  • Make at least 2 blog posts a week (1 of which will include a picture)
  • Offer a Monday Fun Day event every Monday morning (at my house!)
  • Hold at least one Project class a quarter
There those goals should be attainable don't you think? I have some other fun things coming up also, but for now I will concentrate on just those three!

But before I go, would you please take a look along my sidebars (to the right). I have added a link to the new Spring Catalog, you are really going to want to take some time and look this one over.  It is full of some new products and framelits (I love my framelits!).  To get your very own copy of this beautiful catalog all you have to do is be on my mailing list and as new catalogs get released you will get one in your mailbox!

Then see if you can spot anything else I have changed!!! Maybe I will make that a fun giveaway!  How do you feel about blog candy? Leave me some comments and I will see if I can't figure out a fun giveaway (it will probably be free stamps!)

Blessings
Cheryl
