Christmas Card Class

If you are thinking about making your own Christmas cards, but you don't really know what you want to do or when you will find the time to do them, I can help!

I am going to be holding a Christmas Card Class at my place on Monday, November 15, 2010.  We will be making 5 different cards with 5 different designs so that you have lots to choose from if you want to re-create them later! 
The cost of the class will be $15 a person. Please bring your preferred adhesive (glue and dimensionals), scissors, and paper trimmer to make things go a little quicker, everything else and a few extra treats will be supplied by me!
If you would like to be part of the fun, I will need full payment by November 6th in order to get all of the supplies that we need in time.  You can get in touch with me to drop off/pick up payment or else you can pay on paypal here.

Christmas Card Class 11/15/10

Can't wait to see you there!

Happy Halloween!

As you can tell, I am still working on the blog, but it is getting closer to what I want it to be.  What do you think so far?

Tomorrow...well, I guess today if I look at the clock is Halloween!  I'm not a huge Halloween person, but I do enjoy it.  I was out for supper tonight admiring all of the costumes and all of the hard work that has gone into them, but at the same time, I didn't get dressed up and I won't tomorrow.  Maybe it is something about the hard work that they put into the costumes...I'm not sure, I just don't enjoy dressing up as much as I used to.

I am excited about tomorrow though!  We live in an apartment, so we don't get a lot of trick or treaters, but we have a few friends with little ones so I decided that this year I would do something special for them.  It actually worked out great, as I was asked to demo something for Halloween at the crop that I demoed at last weekend so I used the same project!

These great little boxes hold a rice krispie treat just right!  I went online to get some ideas, but when I saw this I knew that it would be perfect!  I love rice krispies so much that my wedding cake was made out of them, so this was the perfect thing for me!  Unfortunately, the blog that I found it on is bookmarked on a different computer so I will have to add it later.

These are just a few of the boxes that I made

I love how cute this Fang-tastic stamp set is!  All of that the stamps are from that set.  The one on the far left has the broom stamped all over as a background stamp, the middle has the bat image stamped as a background and the one on the right I have used the Spider Web embossing folder.  The images are stamped in black staz-on ink and then coloured in with the Stampin' Write markers.

This next bag is for one special little girl.  She isn't big enough to be able to eat the treats yet, so she gets something special!  I don't want to spoil the surprise for her momma, as I know she reads my blog, but I will show you what the bag looks like!
This is the 2-5-7 bag from SCS.  I know that her momma loves cats, so I thought I would do a background of black cats for this one.

Alright, I don't think that I am making sense anymore and luckily my hubby should be home from working a late night anytime, so I am going to call it a night.

Happy Halloween everyone!  Hope you have more treats than tricks!

Blog Changes

As you may, or may not, have noticed there are some changes happening on my blog.  I am slowly working on a new background and with the changes to the background I am learning some other new tricks.  Problem is that once I get them up, I don't want to have to take them down again, so I have just been leaving them as is. 
I know that the colour scemes don't go well together, but hopefully I will get everything changed over soon, so this won't be an issue. 
My biggest problem right now is trying to decide on a header that I like.  I made the background completely from scratch and would like to do the same with the header, but I just can't seem to find the perfect fit!  When I do, I will post the final results!

Happy Stampin!

Crops, Crops and More Crops!

For the next little while I am going to be getting ready for a couple of crops.  Luckily, I am not hosting any of them, as that would be WAY too much work for me to take on right now, but the lovely ladies that are hosting them have asked me to Demo at them or to supply prizes, etc. for them.

I look forward to them as I love to spend an entire day in a hall full of women that love doing the same things that I love!  It is so inspiring to see what everyone is working on and everyone's own style. 

The first one that I am going to is a fundraiser for figure skating on October 23rd.

If you are in the Dalmeny area and want to get out for the day please contact the ladies above or you can find out more about it on facebook here.

This one is going to be the one that I am rushing for, as I will be demoing something for it and having a table set up with some of my samples and stuff.  It isn't that I don't have samples to show, but I would like to make some more to have set out for people to see and possibly some to sell.

The next one isn't until November 6th, so I have some time to get ready for that one.  It is a fundraiser for the Warman Indoor Playground.  I am not demoing that one, but I am donating a prize/prizes so I have to figure out what that is going to be.  With the donation of a prize, she is also going to put one of my business cards in each goodie bag.  I have business cards, but I like to change them up a bit now and then, so I hope to squeeze in time to design and print some new cards!
If you are in the Warman area and would like to come, you can find out more information about this crop on facebook here

This weekend is also going to be crazy, but it should be fun!  Seeing as it is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, we are going to be going out of town tonight so that we can see both of my parents.  Luckily they live in the same town, so we don't have to drive different places.  Then tomorrow night we are back home, but with company for the rest of the weekend, and then supper at the in-laws on Sunday.  I just hope that at the end of the busy weekend, that I will have some time to stamp on Monday!.

Happy Thanksgiving!
