2/1/2012 class CP2 @ SG

WOW!!! The month of January is gone ... that was really quick!
 This is Wednesday's card, we are doing ink jet transfers. Most transfers are done with laser ink images ... here's one you can do from your home printer ... think of the possibilities!
 Today every ones card will be different, so bring your creativity and just go with it!

In addition to the regular class kit please make sure you include ...
Bone folder
Brown dye ink, i.e. vintage photo and/or tea dye
handle & foam applicator
scissors & paper trimmer
foam tape & zig 2 way glue (or something similar)

I guess that's about all for now ... did you see the sneak peak for February Quick & Easy class ... can you say purple ... haha! Also come back soon as I will be posting information about charity cards for the Blue Star mothers, their calendar is finally up! Enjoy the rest of your day and see y'all Wednesday!

Good afternoon, hope your enjoying another beautiful day in Albuquerque!
This week we will be making a Chinese New Year card ...
the year of the dragon!
I do have 3 sentiments for you to choose from,
Happy New Year (Gong Hay Fat Choy, impressive huh!)
Happy Birthday and Thank You!
Make sure your class kit includes a gold edger & that's it!
We will also be celebrating Babara's birthday, it is also Irene's but she is unable to attend on Wednesdays, so if you'd like you can give a card to Barb or mail it!
That's about all, see you Wednesday!

Today's class is a fun little treat box, I have used them for Hanukkah, Christmas, birthdays ...
Each box holds 10 Hershey Nuggets perfectly, I'm sure you could use something else easily! I have made them with cards on the front and even incorporated a gift card ... the possibilities are endless!
So here we go, just in time for Valentine's Day!
Supplies for today's class,
bone folder
strong adhesive
Walnut Stain Distress ink pad (for the edges)

A few examples of what can be done with this pattern ...

See you Wednesday, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The mind is going ...

at least it's not completely gone.

A  few fun things, check out Rangers blog, extreme stickling ... wouldn't you just love to work in a place like that, may be worth moving back to Jersey! Haha!

The Hero Arts Blog hop is in full swing, I am loving the daily dose of creativity ... if you have a few minutes ...

Spellbinders is also having a blog hop, I will be scoping it out as soon as I am done with Hero ...

And of course we can't forget Mr. Holtz who is doing daily reveals of the new products being released at CHA

I know Elizabeth (Scraps Galore) is attending CHA, and I have heard rumors that Nancy (China Phoenix 2) is also attending so make a wish list and copy them to either one and lets see what we can get!

OK, before I forget again the reason for this post ... our January birthdays are Barb & Irene, we will celebrate on January 25, so bring your cards to class. Irene has not been able to attend on Wednesdays, but y'all have her address or I'm sure Bobbie will be glad to give her sis the cards.
Whew, that's all for now, happy surfing and see you all on Wednesday!

Here we go the first class of the new year with this beautiful & elegant line from Basic Grey.

So call Scraps Galore (858 1080) today to reserve your spot,
see you on the 21st at 11 am.

Remember all you need for his class is adhesive & scissors!

When my kids were little we loved Shel Silverstien ...
here's to a creative 2012!
 “Draw a crazy picture 
Write a nutty poem 
Sing a mumble-gumble song 
Whistle through your comb. 
Do a loony-goony dance ' 
Cross the kitchen floor 
Put something silly in the world 
 That ain't been there before.” 
                                     ― Shel Silverstein

And now for the card for this Wednesday ...
an easel post it calendar card

Along with your class kit please bring,
paper trimmer
strong tape
bone folder
gold edger
