Christmas in August!

While it's 100 degrees here in Texas, it's a little hard to think about Christmas right now, but.... it's August which means it's time to start my 5 months of Christmas card classes!  I thought I'd give you a peek at the 6 deigns we'll be making this month. 

Would you like to make these cards??

Class by Mail:   If you'd like to make these 6 cards (2 of each), just place a minimum $35 online order  by this Sunday, August 13 and use this host code: DHAB7AS9.  Then, I'll send you the supply packets for these cards and will email you a tutorial.

Daisy Delight Thank You Card

I just can't seem to get enough of this Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch!  AND... it's finally back in stock!  Yay!!

For this card, I did a different kind of fold, with a belly band.   The card base is still a half sheet of card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"), but it's scored at 2-1/8" from each end.  Then I just wrapped a 9-1/2" x 3/4" piece of Night of Navy card stock around it and secured it in the front with Fast Fuse, then added the punched daisies on top!   Super easy!  Just be sure and only adhere your front focal piece to one side of the card.

 


I'm in Love with Embossing Paste!

Happy Monday! 

I have an upcoming class featuring the new Embossing Paste, so I've been busy playing with it and I AM IN LOVE!  It's so fun and easy to use!  Here is one of my favorite cards that I've created using it. 

Oh So Eclectic

On this card, I just used it the traditional way - just the plain white paste on Soft Sky card stock.  I love the way the brick wall background looks!  The stamp set I used is Oh So Eclectic.  I won this stamp set as a door prize at On Stage back in April, and I have to admit, it's just been sitting on my shelf unused because I wasn't really all that excited about it.  But, boy was I wrong!  It's a beautiful and fun set and with the coordinating set of thinlits, there's so much you can do with it! 

Now, back to my Embossing Paste Class... I'm having it locally in two different locations, with 3 time choices.  If you live in the Dallas/Ft Worth area - click HERE for all of the info and to register!
