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!

Soft Sayings Card Class

Last night was such fun ~ nine stamping friends came over to create cards using the stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s new CARD KIT ~ SOFT SAYINGS on page 10 and 11 in the catalog.

Everyone took their kit home with them.  The kit includes the stamp set and everything needed to make 20 cards.  Plus, refills are available (wo the ink & stamp set)!  We made four cards using the stamp set but not using the kit 'ingredients'.  I will post the four cards tomorrow.  OPPS!  LYNNE ~  I missed getting a picture of you.  So sorry!

Soft Sayings continued...........

Here are the four cards that we will be making in class on Tuesday, June 27, for my SOFT SAYINGS CARD KIT CLASS.    We will be using the stamp set that comes with the kit.  Remember, EVERYTHING comes with the kit to make the 20 cards ~ this class will give you other ideas on how to use the stamp set.  Let me know if you would like to take the class as I have to order the kits soon so everyone has one the day of the class.  The kit, alone, is $35.00.  The kit and the class is $45.00 ~ let me know if you want to make lots of cards and have lots of fun!

June 27 ~ treat yourself...........

My SOFT SAYINGS CARD KIT CLASS is going to be so much fun!  I LOVE the kit and the 20 cards I made one morning this past week.  You can see the kit in the video below or on page 10 and 11 in Stampin' Up!'s new catalog.  Sign up for my class now so that I have time to order your kit for you.  The class is scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, at 6:30 in the Cat/Art Studio.  Because the kit contains EVERYTHING that you need to make 20 cards we will be making an additional four cards together in the class ~ you'll want to use the stamp set over and over ~ let me show you how!  The kit is also refillable making it a good investment (and so much less expensive than even the dollar store!) ~ join me for some fun!


Love this picture............

Rosie took my last watercolor class and I took this picture ~ love this happy lady!  It is such a treat to see happy students and it is my WHY I DO THIS!  I have a WATERCOLOR PENCILS 101 class on Saturday morning ~ looking forward to more happy ladies!

just breathe.....

On May 22 I posted another card that I made using this same watercolor technique ~ a little ink and lots of water!  In that card I used a beautiful retiring stamp set.  Today the background is the same watercolor technique but with a new stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s new catalog, CREATIVITY YOUR WAY.  The bundle on page 147 includes the stamp set, Colorful Seasons, and a set of dies, Seasonal Layers (the beach chair is included).  We will be using this technique in my WATERCOLOR 102 CLASS next Saturday afternoon ~ join me!

If you are new to our WATERCOLOR PENCILS (page 201 in the catalog) I am having a basic class, Watercolor 101, on Saturday morning at 10 in the Studio.  EMAIL ME if you are interested.  The 102 CLASS is the same afternoon ~ at 2 PM.

Remarkable You

We have been using this stamp set, Remarkable You, in my WATERCOLOR PENCIL CLASS ~ everyone seems to love the images.  I agree ~ it is a great set to use for teaching the HOW TO of these pencils.  This will be a little different from our class project but fabulous just the same.  Click on the word DOWNLOAD at the bottom of the post for the directions and try it ~ you'll love the results!
