This is good for ages 5 – 12. (6 and under parents must stay to assist their child please)

Fall and Holiday Class Schedule Finalized!!!

I know I have been neglecting all of you over the past few weeks with the move and all and I am very sorry!! You have been asking for it and it is NOW complete!! My Fall and Holiday Class schedule. 

First we will start with my Christmas card Stamp-a-Stacks. Every year I hold two sessions but because I have had so many requests for MORE Christmas cards this year I am having three sessions. That’s right instead of 2 sessions of 4 different cards (3 of each, 12 in total) per session this year you will have the chance to make 12 different cards (3 of each, 36 cards in total) 
Also this year instead of only one date for each session, I have 9 dates. That’s right, 9 dates to accommodate your busy and hectic lives.

Here is how it will work:
I will hold 3 Monday day time classes, 3 Friday evening Classes and 3 Saturday afternoon Classes. That is 9 opportunities for you to get all your Christmas Cards Done!!
There will be 12 difference cards for you to choose from (all 3 Stamp-a-Stacks)
At each session you will get to make 12 cards, 4 designs, 3 of each for $30.
Attend 3 sessions of your choice and you will have made 12 different cards, 36 in total.

The sessions are as follows:
Monday Day Sessions:
Friday Evening Sessions:
Saturday Afternoon Sessions:

Here are some of the other Classes and events I have during October and November:
I will be posting over the next few weeks all of the Christmas Cards we will be making but for now here is a sneak peak of some of the SU! stamp sets we will be using.


Don't forget space is limited for all of my classes so if you would like to attend email me to reserve you space and share with your friends!!!

Christmas House Kids Class Coming in November

Have you had a chance to look through the Holiday Mini catalogue yet? It is jam packed with Holiday FUN!

On page 37 there is the cuties new product, design-a-house!

Here is my Christmas house I made. My daughter and her friends loved it! And because of this I am having a kids ONLY class November 6th and we will be decorating these great little houses.

One look at our Design-a-House D├ęcor Accents and we bet you’ll instantly have multiple ideas of how to decorate this charming little cottage for all kinds of holidays and occasions. Whether it’s haunted, looks like it’s made of gingerbread and candies, or dressed up as a centerpiece for a housewarming party, there are all kinds of ways to use this piece for adding a special touch of beauty to your home or a friend’s home. Let your imagination guide you in choosing from our many Designer Series papers and other accessories to adorn your little house. (Finished house size approximately 6-1/4” x 6” x 5”) 
Later this week I am going to play around and see if I can not create a haunted house since Halloween is around the corner.

Be sure to check out my event calender to see what is coming up in October and November.

September's Featured Projects from Stampin' Up!!

Well I am right in the middle of moving this weekend but my dear Husband has managed to have the computers hooked up and the internet running, so I thought I would take a break from unpacking and post this months Feature Projects From Stampin' Up!



It will be a while before I am posting my own creations, I have a whole house to set up. It is amazing that until you start packing you do not realize how much stuff you accumulate. Speaking of having too much stuff, World Card Making Day is October 2nd, so what a better day for me to hold my Annual Open house and retired product sale!!! I will be giving more detail and show some of the make-n-takes we will be creating in the up coming weeks... so stay tuned!!!

Until I can unpack my way out of all these boxes, Happy Stampin' because sadly I will not be for a bit :(
