Hey Everyone!!

Just wanted to share some cards with you that I will be teaching at the Cropping Station on Jan 17th. Jude and I will be teaching 2 classes to kick off the Cropping Station's new monthly card club. They are also planning  card crops in the future.

All the products and stamps used in the cards you can get at the Cropping Station. The Cropping Station is in Colmar Pa. and is about 2-3 miles up from Montgomeryville Mall. From Narberth up the turnpike it takes about 30-40 minutes.

Remember how important it is to support our local papercraft stores. the more people who go in then the more the owners can order for us to buy. It can be a "win-win" situation for all!!!

Hey Everyone-

I spent the afternoon making star book ornaments with Pat and Judy. I have 20 to make where as Pat and Jude had about 3-5 to make. Pat and Judy both made critical errors in their construction of their books. They tried to blame it on the teacher, I blame it on them just not paying attention!!

The thing is just get together with others to stamp. You will have so much fun and you will learn a lot too. 

An added pix is of Miss Pinky under the Christmas tree. there is something about the tree water that attracts my cats. Must be the sap that leaches into the water.

Have fun this holiday and create lots of cool stuff!!

As you all can see I am not the neatest person in my studio. I thought I'd take some snaps of packing up to go to Jude's for a day of Christmas card making. The problem is I want to bring my whole studio with me. I did manage to get about 40 cards made that day. Jude had fun and managed to get only 20 cards made. Yeah OK- they were more complicated then mine!

Maybe if you comment she will post her cards. they were pretty cool. 

The "friends" card were Miss Patricia's birthday card this year. I tend to be an over achiever with the birthday cards. What do you think? I'm thinking it would make a fun class. Any interest out there? 

I'm off to make 20 star book ornaments. 

Have a creative Sunday!

Hey Every One!!

I couldn't help but to show off both of my beautiful nieces. Amy is my niece and Avery is my grand niece. Here we are making glitter balls. Christmas is the best time for creativity. Avery is really getting into the whole glitter thing. If you don't know how to make glitter balls let me know. They are a staple gift for everyone!

Some stuff I've worked on.

I haven't spent the entire Thanksgiving holiday cooking. Here are a couple of cards I've made for George's birthday and a Thanksgiving card for my niece Sarah. If anyone knows George the shirt and tie card is totally him!! He even has a tie almost exactly like the tie in the card. The "you rock" card s 'cos every year he gets a guitar card. Maybe I can try and scare up the others to show you..

It's time to start working on your holiday cards. I'm going up the Studio when i am done here and start getting busy. Let me know when you all start and do you have any tricks to make it go smoothly and quickly. I am sure others would like to know as well.

Awesome Classes Awesome Day!

Hi All!
These are pictures taken during our classes at The Creative Studio last week! This is our Holiday Card Extravaganza and everyone was working hard to get the cards done for each class. You could stay all day and most everyone did, it was and enjoyable time together. There is nothing like spending time with people that love doing what you do! Your always learn a little bit from each other whether it's a good stamp store in the area or the best place to go online for something. We took a break and had lunch at the Studio from our favorite place The Clifton Deli!

We're looking forward to our next set of classes, coming up December 6th! Sue and I will put our samples up soon!

When teachers play!!

Good Morning Everyone!!

I am beginning to get the hang of all this MAC stuff. YEAH!!

Thought I would share some pics of teachers at play. Once a month Judy, Julie, Deborah and myself get together to stamp, share ideas and way to many laughs. We call ourselves the SNS- Sunday Night Stampers. At this session, Deborah had just gotten a Cuttlebug( a bit behind the times don't ya think!?!) I gave a mini lesson in everything it can do.

Hey if any of you have Cuttle bug ideas send into the comments. I am sure that Deborah would love to see them.

Hey Everyone-

I will be posting what I call an "anatomy of a card"  series. This is just a look into what goes on when I make a card. I wanted to make a simple holiday card with one of my new Stampin Up sets.   The final 2 cards at the bottom are my finished projects. I'm just not sure which one I like better.  Is it the simple card with out the extra snowflakes or the card with the extra snowflakes? let me hear your comments!!

Well I got up at 5:00 am to pickup Bev, Pat and Judy for a road trip to the Queen's Ink in Savage Md. for a class with Stamp Zia's Zana Clark. Now she isn't my cup of tea but the class was AWESOME!! We made a no sew wall hanging. It was the fastest 4 hour class I have ever taken. We all made amazing stuff.

The Queen's Ink is a great store.  The store is nestled in amongst other fun and crafty stores. There is a fabric and quilt store, a bead store, an antique mart and lots of other fun and eclectic type shops.

Patty the owner is a delightful person and made us Northeners welcome. The store has lots of everything and the artwork on display is amazing. The class room is spacious.

Rumor has it that Timmy might be coming to teach. I'm there.

The only glitch in the day was lunch- the worst possible service I have ever had in a restaurant. We waited over a half hour to order then another half hour to get our food. When it did arrive Pat didn't get what she asked for- no apology. Speaking to the manager was useless as I think he was someone they pulled in off the street- this after we waited 15 minutes for him to show up.

But I would not let that make you decide not to go- 'cos the rest of the place was great.

Only took us about an hour and a half to get there.

Jude and I will be planning a road trip in the spring. Patty the owner is planning on making us welcome with demo's make-n-takes refreshments and discount coupons.

Seats will fill up fast so let us know if you are interested!!
