Yesterday was JoNell’s birthday. Today she attended my Christmas card making class so I made her this card. I cased this card from Pinterest, isn’t it adorable? While the idea is the same my card is different because it is made with Stampin’ Up! product.
We celebrated JoNell’s birthday with lemonaid filled strawberry cupcakes and card making. After we finished our cupcakes I realised that I didn’t take a picture. Ugh! I hate it when that happens. All in all It was a fun afternoon. Happy Birthday JoNell! It was great stamping with you.

Happy Monday friends!
At my August 24th class we will be making four cards. Last week I showed you card #1. Today I want to show you the second card that you will make. The other two cards will be a surprise. It’s always so much fun to see the reactions I get when you come to class and see your projects for the first time.
I’m excited about this class because there are a few things that are different about it. First, you will make four cards (usually we make three). Second, all of the cards are simple and easy to make. Third, you can attend the class at the time you pick.
Currently I have ladies scheduled at noon, another guest at 5:15, and one gal’s time is to be determined. What time fits your schedule? I want you to know that I’m here for you. I’m here to meet your needs. All you have to do is contact me so we can schedule your time.
The card I’m showing you today is made using Whisper White card stock and Archival Basic Black Ink. There is no coloring, no fussy cutting, or any time consuming techniques on this one. This card is basic yet elegant. The subtle details of this card come from the variety of angles. I think this lay out is one you will reproduce often.
My customers are always pleasantly surprised when they see the cards that I post in person. Often they say, “ooooh this is so much prettier than the picture”. (Sigh) I wish I was a better photographer! Any suggestions?
To sign up all you need to do is send me a quick message or email and you’re in. The cost of class is a minimum $20.00 order that day.
IF YOU BRING A NEW FRIEND TO CLASS, YOU BOTH WILL GET $5.00 OFF OF YOUR ORDERS TOTAL.
Thanks for visiting, have a great evening.

Today we are attending a party for Kayla. Kayla is headed to the University of Alabama and everyone wants to wish her well. I made this card to let Kayla know that we are proud of her, excited for her and to help her send off a little more special.
Above is a close up of the focal point . I wanted to make sure that you could see the stitching on the circles as well as the texture from the Pinewood Plank folder.
The A is from the large letters dies, I’m so glad I finally got those dies, I find myself using them all of the time. I chose to make Kayla’s card using the University’s colors while keeping her card simple and to the point. I hope Kayla likes it.
Thank you for stopping in, have a blessed weekend and see you on Monday.

My granddaughter is my pocketful of sunshine that is for sure. She is so happy go lucky, a free spirit and very comfortable in her own skin. I just admire her confidence and her belief that she can do anything.
Heatherann turns 22 today so at open house yesterday I made her this card. This card fits her perfectly, it’s a happy card, bright and cheery just like her. I think Heatherann’s future is so bright that she needs to wear sunglasses, lol.
Isn’t this Pocket Full Of Sunshine stamp set fun? One of my customers Mei used it yesterday. Mei wanted to case a card I had received in the Thailands card swap. The original card was made from a combination of two stamp sets, Pocket Full Of Sunshine and Lemon Zest. I don’t have the Lemon Zest set so I suggested using the stamp set Flourishing Phrases instead. I thought that the large flower image in the Flourishing Phrases set would be a great background just like the bold lemon was from the Lemon Zest stamp set. Sure enough it worked perfectly.
Everyone in attendance yesterday loved Mei’s creation. I decided to change it up a bit to make Heatherann a birthday card. Adding the sunglasses made this card perfect for her. The Thinlits make cutting out the pocket and the sunglasses a snap. I love how the set even has the little pocket tab on the side. Such detail.
Others decided to stamp pockets and glasses once they saw how cute they were. Now they can create cards at home using the images they took home. My guests used different colors each one of them was so cute. This set is way more versatile than I thought it would be. I’m thinking the pocket and those cowboy/girl boots from the set Country Livin’ would be adorable also.
Ahhh so many stamps, so little time….. I better get busy.

I also used basic black card stock on this card and forgot to list it in the product list. so here is that Item number 121045

SUCCESS!!!! Bingo was such a huge success……. I personally had so much fun, my guests were so excited, so full of energy and ready to play. They loved the prizes and absolutely loved their make and takes. This little piggy card was make and take #2. It was a hit. My guests used their imagination and placed the cute little flower in different areas. Each one was adorable.
I cased this card, I just had too, its so so cute. This card was one of the trades from Thailand. Again I don’t have the designers name, I didn’t receive this card in my stack of trades. I did have the opportunity to snap a picture of it though. I knew I had to case this card and share it with my guests. I’m so glad I did.
Sweet Amanda Bender came to BINGO bearing gifts. What a sweetheart Amanda is she gave me this beautiful bottle of wine. Check out the hand stamped tag. I just love Amanda. We met when I was asked to participate in the Wine and Roses event that my side line Angie hosted. Amanda and I will be friends forever now, it’s just wonderful how stamping has brought so many great people into my life. I’m beyond grateful.
Rhonda and Debbie both won Bingo twice!!! Can you believe that? And Terry won a game too. The BIG winner of Blackout was Christine. Christine won a $90.00 shopping spree with me. She was so excited! Both Rhonda, Christine and Terry are new customers of mine, so winning product will help them grow their collection of stamps and accessories. Debbie is a long time customer and dear friend, I was happy to see that the product she won were items she didn’t already have. She was thrilled.
BUT the best news of all, Christine has decided to join my team. YES a new recruit, I’m so so excited for the both of us. Christine and I are two peas in a pod, we really have a great time when we are together. I look forward to seeing where her new business takes her. It’s going to be a fun ride, I know that for sure.
If you attended BINGO last night please comment and let me know how your experience was. THANK YOU!
Live loved my friends, and thanks for popping in.
