I have been so busy I haven’t had time to post. I apologize.
Hopefully I will get back into the swing of posting more often. My Sister Maureen has been visiting with me and we have had such a wonderful time. She was awaiting the birth of her new Grandaughter, and I have really enjoyed our time together.
The projects for this month are 3 cards using the Big Shot Scallop Die I have seen similiar cards on several websites, and of course had to put my own twist on them. I will be teaching the "Ribbon Rose" as shown in the picture.
We will also be doing a more masculine Spiral Book using the "Sense of Time" Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini and the "To the Nines" textured DSP. I will be sending out class confirmations today.
Pics of the Class project for May 22nd and 23rd are below. This is the totally tool card you have all be waiting to do. These classes are really filling fast so be sure to e-mail me and reserve your spot. You can view all pics full size by clicking on each picture.
Here are the pics of the Darling Easter Basket we will be making in class. I will be teaching the accordian flower shown in the Sale-a-bration flyer on page 5. We will be filling the Basket with grass and candy…chocolate of course.
The Spiral bound books we have been doing in classes have been a big Hit. I hope to be able to sell kits for my projects in the near future, so be sure to keep checking. I also hope to sell some of my pins and spiral books…completed with directions. This should be available in the near future.
Here is the Spiral bound book we will be doing in our March Class. Class dates Friday March 20th and Saturday March 21st. The class for Friday is filled, but there is still room on Saturday. Be sure to view each picture individually to see the complete page.
In this booklet we have added Vellum sheets with computer generated poems and verses. These little booklets are so much fun to do. I can hardly wait to do another for Mother’s Day, and then a more masculine on for Father’s Day.
Since I have brought up fathers day I have to show you the WOW card I created using the Totally Tools set. We will do this project in our May Class. There is a pocket in front to put a Home Depot or Lowes Gift Card. I made this for my Son-in-law Brian for his Birthday…then told him I had to borrow it back to make one for Father’s Day. He laughed alot, but took the gift certificate out before returning it.
I just had to show you a picture of the Nectarine Tree in my back yard. I have quite a few fruit trees in bloom. What a beautiful sight.For those of you back in the snow I hope it brings a hope of what will be around the corner for you soon. This is actually very early blooming for us. I just hope that we don’t get freezes while the blossoms are on.
I was so excited to get the stamps sets to do this beautiful Bella Rose Friendship Book. It was so much fun making this book. The colors are gorgeous.
