Color Theory Class

My COLOR THEORY CLASS was on Tuesday evening this week.  The weather that was predicted, and arrived, wasn't good so I worried all day that no one would arrive at 6:30 for class.  And, then ~ AMAZING, everyone who had signed up for the class ARRIVED!  So, I want to thank Julie, Dixie, Rusty, Barbara, Beth, Nancy, Jan, Sandra, Abby and Susan for coming out on a rainy windy night!  I also sent the class to Laurie who lives in Maryland ~ so glad she didn't drive down last night for class.  We made 2 each of 4 cards ~ all involving dies and the Big Shot so it was a very busy night (there were 4 Big Shots in the Studio ~ that's a first!  Thanks to Susan and Adrienne for lending Big Shots for the class!)

You can find the COLORFUL SEASONS BUNDLE on page 147 in the annual catalog.  Here are the cards we made ~ Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring.

Third Card for my Christmas Class

The third card for the CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST class uses a wonderful new stamp set, GOOD TIDINGS, from Stampin' Up!'s HOLIDAY CATALOG.  (Yours hasn't arrived in the mail yet?  Give me a call!).  You can find it on page 8 in the catalog.  Here is the card we made ~

And, here is an alternate with the smaller greeting on the inside of the card.

The set is a tiny bit confusing as it is a two-step stamping set so tomorrow I will show you Step 1 through 4 so that you will feel comfortable creating this beautiful holly.  


Second Christmas Card

The second card in my CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST class also used the CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS bundle ~ this time we used the dies that coordinate with the stamp set.  It was time consuming but everyone seemed to enjoy having this card in their collection.  In addition to the dies cutting out the trees we used the stamp set, STAR OF LIGHT, to add sparkle (gold embossing powder) to the trees ~ hard to tell in the picture, sorry about that!

Christmas in August Class

My Christmas in August Class was yesterday morning ~ Saturday, August 26,  It was a busy class ~ everyone was busy making six Christmas cards and looking at the new Holiday Catalog.  This series of classes started in July and will meet in September and October.  The goal is to get a head start on those lovely cards and not panic when November rolls around.  I will post all three cards for you, here's the first one.

Glass Class/Party in the Cat/Art Studio

Last Thursday my across the street neighbor ~ Adrienne ~ rented the Cat/Art Studio so that she could invite her Red Hat friends to a glass class.  I got to take the class too and it was really fun to be the student in my own studio!  The teacher was Robin Short from Chesapeake, a lady fascinated by working with glass.  Her business is LET'S GET FUSED! and you can find her at www.rbscreations.com.

Robin Short  teacher

She brought all the class supplies (round tins of colored glass below) and gave us directions for our jewelry creations.  We could either make one pendant or a pendant and earrings with our square of glass.

Round pans of glass

I choose glass from the blue tray.

This is the square that I created.

  Robin took the squares, unfinished, to complete the fusing process at home.  She showed me a project that she did recently working with children to create a 'sun catcher', isn't it pretty?

And here is my necklace and earrings that my square, above, created!!!  What do you think?

Christmas in July Class is today!

My first CHRISTMAS IN JULY class is this morning at 10 AM.  Here are the cards that we will be making.  There are 11 stamping friends coming so it is going to be a very busy morning!  I hope they remember their SNAIL, their Real Red marker and their Lemon Lime Twist marker.  They are going to be doing some coloring on the At Home card (the one with the red door)!  This is the first class in a series of four.  When they finish (October) each of them will have 24 lovely handmade cards to send to friends in December!  That's a very good feeling!  Susan Elise

My YOU MOVE ME CLASS on July 26 is FREE!  You might wonder why I would offer a free class to those of you interested in this bundle.  When you add the shipping and tax to the bundle the total investment to make these cards is $58.  And, it took me a while to work out the 'how to' details so I want to pass that experience on so that you can have all of the fun without the 'learning time' it took me.  EMAIL ME if you are interested ~ sign up by July 19 and pay just $53 ~ get FREE SHIPPING!
