More Stamp-a-Stack pictures

As promised, here are the pictures of the completed cards that you can mae with the Secret Garden Simply Scrapping kit. Again, a couple of the cards will have more than one of each style. You can click on the picture for a bigger image. I will have many different sentiment stamps available to use on these cards. I made most of these either 'Thank You's or 'Happy Birthday's because that is what I use the most of, but the great thing about this class, will be that you will be able to make whatever kind of cards you want with this, just change the greeting!

Holiday Stamp a Stack

I wanted everybody to be able to see exactly what we will be doing at the Stamp-a-Stack on October 6th, so here are some pictures. There will be 30 cards made (there are more than one style of several of the cards). For these cards, I used the Winter Bright Simply Scrapping kit, bashful blue ribbon, and white cardstock (for the card bases). I already have several RSVPs for this class, so if you are interested, please contact me before space runs out. For anyone who cannot make this class, but is still interested, I am planning on making up kits with all of the materials needed, and step-by-step instructions (with pictures) of exactly what you need to do. The only thing you would need to do these cards on your own (that isn't supplied in the kit) would be a 'Happy Holidays' or 'Merry Christmas' greetings stamp! If you would be interested in purchasing one of the kits, please contact me before September 15th, and let me know which kit you are choosing. We will only have time during this class to make one set of the cards, but anyone wishing to purchase both sets may do so (I have had a couple of people do so already). I will have pictures of the cards made using the Secret Garden Simply Scrapping kit coming up as well. I just need to stamp the greetings on them, and take photos. They turned out very nicely as well, and will make wonderful everyday cards. Remember this event will be held on Saturday, October 6th at 11am. The cost is $30 to make 30 cards, and the only thing you need to supply is adhesive! Please contact me if you are interested in either taking the class, or purchasing the kit by September 15th. Pre-payment is required and will also be due on the 15th! Thanks everyone!

New October Class

I have pictures ready of a new project class I'm holding on Sunday, October 14th. We will be making a scrapbook like project with room for pictures, memorabilia, journaling, lists, or anything you'd like. There are two different color palettes to choose from. The finished project shows the fall flowers designer papers being used. I also have pictures of my unembellished project using the second color choice - Darling Doodles designer papers. Each project has four pockets to use for tags, hidden journaling, envelopes, or more pictures. There are really endless possibilities as to what these can be used for! Please check out my official Stampin' Up! website events calendar for more details about this class.

Workshops Coming Up

Just a couple of quick notes about events coming up!

I will be uploading pictures of the bleach technique class projects in the next few days for everyone that is interested in coming.

I'm expecting my Simply Scrabooking kits on Thursday, and as soon as I can, will post pictures of the 30 (yes, 30) cards that we will be making with these kits at the Holiday Stamp-a-Stack.

I am expecting to post pictures tomorrow of a new project class I will be offering. It is a new mini scrapbook project with pockets that I've been working on. The class will be offered on October 14th.

For all details about the costs and the times and dates of any classes upcoming, please check my official Stampin' Up! website (there is a link at the top of this blog) in the upcoming events section. And as always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
