Gift Class

 My Gift Class was yesterday.  This all came about because my friend Jayne Stenstrom gave me a post it note holder and pen.  One of my customer friends saw it and wanted to have a class to make it.  So I added a bookmark, gift card holder and a card.

 Attendees could choose to punch their scallop circles whatever order they wanted.
 They could choose a different sentiment on the card if they desired.
 Attendees could also choose the Natural Ribbon, or the Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon for the Gift Card Holder.

 This is a somewhat open view.  Using the 2 Tags Die.  Perfect for a gift card.

 And here is what I came up with for the Post it Note and Pen Holder.  Again, attendees could choose their own ribbon.

Stamps:  Stippled Blossoms, Blessings from Heaven, A Round Array
Ink:  Rose Red, Old Olive
Card Stock:  Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon, Natural Ribbon, Mini gel pens, Designer Series Paper, 2 Tags Die, Big Shot, Paper Snips, Simply Scored, Giant Paper Clip, Pinwheel Sizzlit, Scallop Circle Punch

Have a great day!

Whitewash and Gate Fold

For this month's club we made a Whitewash Card and a Gate Fold Card.  My friend Emma Fewkes did this very cool technique that I am calling whitewash.    So cool.  Did I say cool already?  Ha!

 Here is a side view.  Another friend, Robin Spinner, is brilliant.  Cut out two of the scalloped ovals.  Score one of them a 1/2 inch from the top.  Attach it to the front oval with sticky strip.  Genius.  A full scallop oval without a fold in it.  LOVE that.  Robin taught me that with the scallop square.  Yay!
 This is the Gate Fold Card that we made.  I love blue and red together.  So cheerful.

Recipe Whitewash Card:
Stamps:  Secret Garden, Ciao Baby
Ink:  Craft White, Riding Hood Red, Garden Green, Versamark

Color Refresh and Free Shipping!

Two big announcements all in one day!

There will be FREE shipping on all orders placed on April 6th - 8th.

Color Refresh.  Here is the line-up.
I am excited about all of it.  Well, maybe not about Baja Breeze retiring.  I love that color.  If you love it too, or any other retiring color, keep this in mind:  all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period.  You can order here   

Contact me with any questions.
