Dressed for Success

You've seen the cards in the store and maybe even bought one.  Now you have the chance to make them yourself.  Wednesday, June 1, at both 12:30 and then again 6:30, join Susan and make four of these and get the materials to make four more at home.  If you purchase paper or cardstock at the shop during class, you may stamp the image as many times as possible. 

Susan and I played with this stamp several years ago and had a ball.  The dress card is a fun card to make and always surprises you when it's done.  The stamp is from Art Impressions.  Call and sign up asap so that Susan can make sure she has enough for everyone!

Memorial Day

As the mother-in-law of a military member; as the wife of a veteran; as a military wife who moved around the world in support of her husband; I pause to remember all those who have given their life for our freedom.  In today's world, almost everyone knows someone in or related to the military.  Be sure and thank our military personnel and veterans, as well as their families, for all they give up for our freedom.  Not only today but every time you get a chance.

Spring Fashion Show

 I never need to get sick again!  A couple of months ago I had bronchitis and as I sat snuggled under my blanket in my recliner, many class ideas came to me.  OMgosh!  Here is the Spring Fashion Show Class which is scheduled for May 25th at 12:30 and 6:30.  All the prep work is done for you including cutting.  You will make 4 cards in this class with lots of ribbon, pins, bling, unusual cuts and much more.  These are really fun cards, and it makes me want to go shopping really bad!  Ya'll know what a "fashionista" I am, roflmao!  Call the shop and sign up today!

Suprise inside!


Watercolor 2

Whether you took Watercolor 1 or not, you won't want to miss Watercolor 2 with Susan.  Not only will you be stamping and painting these 4 cards, but you'll be watercoloring flowers and lace.  Fun techniques that we played with in Ink or Dye a couple of months ago!  LOVED the lace!  So much fun and absolutely beautiful!  Call and sign up today!

Trip to the Orient

We have gotten sooo many Asian stamps in the shop that Susan is offering her "Trip to the Orient" again. 

This picture really doesn't do these cards justice.  You will be using Mitzuhiki (sp?) cords, metal coins, embossing and much more in this class!  You really don't want to miss out on this one!

 A play on the name of the toy that I loved as a child! Etch-a-sketch. Stretch A Sketch is another way of being creative. So often we get in a rut and all our cards start looking the same. Every month I'm going to take a card sketch and design 5 cards using the same sketch. From elegant to cute. From sophisticated to fun. One sketch = Five different cards. This first month I used a very simple sketch. They will get more involved as we go along. So if you're in a creative funk and need some inspiration, than this is the class for you! Call and sign up today!


I always struggle making sympathy cards.  They seem to be a challenge to a lot of us according to most of you.  So I have decided to have a class where you will make 5 sympathy cards.  Hopefully you will never need all of these, but we all know that you probably will.  Join me on Wednesday the 11th at either 12:30 or 6:30 or on Saturday the 14th at 2:00 for the Sympathy Card class.  You must call the shop and sign up for any class you want to take.  We want to make sure we have enough room for everyone and that we have enough supplies. 


If you've never tried this easy beautiful card making idea, then now is the time!  Susan has created 4 cards using this technique and you don't want to miss out.  You will make the cards and have the patterns to go home and make many more.  Join her next Tuesday at either 12:30 or 6:30.  Call and sign up while there is still room!
