Katy, "Is it Friday yet?"

Katy emailed me a short time ago with the above comment ~ made me smile.  Katy has planned a private stamping party with some of her friends for this upcoming Friday evening and, obviously, she can't wait!  Fun!  In the meantime, I am busy with my stamp club tonight, 3rd Thursday Class tomorrow night AND figuring out the perfect cards for Katy and her friends!!!  The PRIVATE CLASS is $10 per person and we are making four cards, with envelopes ~ Christmas cards.  Her friends are primarily non-stampers but that is not a problem because, between Katy and me, they will leave the CAT/ART STUDIO  with fabulous personally handmade cards!

I am considering using Ornamental Pine ~ here are some samples ~

What do you think?  If you'd like to relax and have a fun stamp party with your friends, contact me ~ you come and enjoy your time together and I do all the 'work'!  What a cool job I have!!!!

Handy little square punch on sale this week....

Square border card

Such a pretty card created by my friend, Dawn, using the 1 inch square punch ~ one of the Stampin' Up! products on the Weekly Deals sale this week.  This is a technique that you could easily recreate.  I have added the products used in this card at the bottom of the post.  Click on any of the pictures to order from my online store.  Be sure and use the Hostess Code 9YD94VTM to receive a pretty card in the mail from me ~ thanks!  Susan Elise

Bless those banners...............

Stampin' Up! recently introduced a new photopolymer stamp set that I think you might like.  Have you tried photopolymer?  It is completely clear and sticks like glue to our clear blocks which makes it very easy to create with.  This photopolymer stamp set is Banner Blessings, $15.95, #136720.

Several possibilities ~

I particularly like the SHINE stamp ~ Shine like stars in the universe.  My team is Southern Stars so I can't wait to make, and send, some really pretty star cards using that phrase.  Thanks for stopping by and my knee seems to be better today so I think it was a good thing to stay off of it yesterday.  Want to make holiday tags on Sunday afternoon?  Let me know!  Susan Elise


JOY tag

I postponed my HOLIDAY TAG CLASS today until next Sunday afternoon, November 23.  No, it wasn't because of the Packer's game (I know you thought it was!) but because I pulled a little muscle of some sort in my left knee and I have been limping around.  Limping around is not a good way to have friends over for a fun stamping afternoon.  So, if you'd like to join us next Sunday afternoon at 2 PM for some lovely holiday tags, just let me know.  Christmas is right around the corner and you are going to need tags for those pretty gifts wrapped in Stampin' Up!'s super kraft gift wrap! 

Santa cutie....

NOVEMBER Get Your Santa On

Santa Stamp-a-Stack card from last Saturday's class.  If you'd like to have a Santa Card Making Class with your friends, just let me know and we'll get together in the studio.  I have dates open, you invite your friends, bring a few snacks and I'll supply everything else.  The class will be $10 per person for 4 cards w envelopes or free with a $25 order.  Let's plan some holiday fun!
