Elementary Elegance Make and Take


Wow, where did the month of January go, I can't believe that it's the last day!!

I wanted to share the make and take we made at my open house on the weekend. We used the new Sale a Bration stamp set Elementary Elegance to make these cute 3 by 3 cards!!

I stamp the image in Whisper White craft ink and then sprinkled white embossing powder on it and use the heat gun to set it. I find the image stands out more.  I love how this set coordinates with the Curly Label Punch!

PS I Love Gift Box

Happy Monday!

Emily had been asking me to have a Kid's class so that her friends could come over. We decided to call it Teen's Social Club as this fit the theme on Friday night. It was so funny as I was showing them the projects, there Iphone, Ipads and Ipods were going off!! Their friends were trying to face time them, I just had to laugh. So after about 5 mins of this, they finally turned them off so we could get down to business!!

They had fun create 3 different projects for Valentine's Day. This was one of the projects that we made. The girls loved it!!

My project today uses the new Sale a Bration stamp set called Fresh Vintage. This is not a style of stamp set that I would normal pick up, but after using it a few times...I love it!! One of the things that I love the most is the colour combination on this card, I used Soft Sueded and Calypso Coral along with my favourite Designer Series paper...Enchantment!!

Punch Art Snow Frame

Happy Friday!!

I love my job!! Thank you to all the ladies that came out to my Snow Frame class. I had "Snow" much fun...I love that a little paper and ink brought us together for a fun night of laughs and chatting!! Can't wait till Feb 6th for the next one!!

So I had this idea in my mind over the holidays to create a fun Winter layout for my 10 by 10 frame. I wanted my frame to have a winter feel so I went with Pool Party and Island Indigio card stock. My pattern paper is from the Sweet Shoppe DSP. I love how the patterns fit perfectly with my theme. All my characters were made with our punches!!
