Melissa's Mistake?

We all make mistakes and, well, sometimes they turn out to be an improvement over our original intention.  Which is just what happened in our Blending Brushes/Masking Class this morning!  Melissa Burroughs was using one of the masks from the BUTTERFLIES & FLOWERS LAYERING DECORATIVE MASKS (#158142, $10, page 65 in the Mini Catalog).  When she finished the center panel she moved on to add the design to the outside of her envelope but instead grabbed the base card and added the design on the edge.  Which turned out to be a 'mistake' and an improvement, one that everyone in the class liked!!!

The moral of the 'story' ~ not to worry about changes/mistakes ~ they are the foundation of CREATIVITY!

Waves of the Ocean Class

The first four cards are cards that my stamping friends (Marti, Diane, Abby, Kelly, Rusty, Rosanne and Lynne) created in class yesterday.  The fifth card is one that everyone in  my March Stamp Clubs created this month.  The bundle (stamp set and dies) is in the new 2022-23 annual catalog but the jewels, foils and designer series paper are not!  Let me know if I can order the products that will be discontinued for you ~ it's a shame they are not included!

Valentine Class Today

2022_JJ_P11 (2)I have a group of friends coming over this afternoon to make Valentines.  One of the friends, Emily, scheduled the event and gave her friends Gift Certificates at Christmas so that they could all be together for this class.  They are new to paper crafting with Stampin' Up! so I can't wait to meet them and get started!

IMG_7335This is one of the cards that we are making and we are using the LOVE & HAPPINESS BUNDLE on page 11 in the Mini Catalog.  This bundle is a little different as it includes the stamp set, the dies AND the embossing folder!  You can see in the top picture how one of the dies fits exactly in the center of the embossing folder.  You run the die and the embossing folder through the die cut & embossing machine at the same time!  That embosses the cardstock and cuts out the heart.  If you are interested there is still time to order this bundle and make your own pretty Valentines ~ let me know!
