10/30/2012 class @CP2

Goodbye October, on to November ...
Started out the week in my usual tee and shorts, now I'm in sweats,
what happened to the transition, boom, it's cold!
Anyway, remember this card?

I have seen a few of you duplicate the technique,
it is a great idea.
Today we are doing the same technique with a twist. We are shuffling up the layers 
and using an embossing folder for added texture.

and I was in a blue mood and used tumbled glass, broken china
 and faded jeans distress ink with the foam blending tool.
If you would like to use different colors feel free
 to bring them along with your foam blending tool.
I also kept my card flat, if you would like further dimension
 bring along your foam tape or pop dots.

Class Kit
stamping foam or mouse pad
black edger, ink or pen
temporary/removable adhesive
dye based ink pads
foam blending tool
pop dots/foam adhesive

Enjoy your weekend!

10/23/2012 class @CP2

My mind is fried.
Prepped and taught three classes this week.
My creativity is zapped.
I just tossed six failed samples into the trash.
Took a deep breath and thought keep it simple. 
My goal for this week is to simplify everything I do.

The paper shimmers, simply beautiful.

Class Kit
Fine tip black sharpie or marker
black edger
if you have
wild honey DI
rusty hinge DI
fired brick DI
handles & form applicator
(I will cut a few extra masks)

enjoy your day *Ü*

10/16/2012 class @CP2

Well it's finally starting to feel like autumn, crisp & clean.
That's where today's color palate came from along with the images 
that belong in a field somewhere.
Today we will be working with glossy card stock and lots of color and layering.
Not much needed for today's class,
 black edger or what ever color you prefer.
Today we will be celebrating Nancy's & Bette's birthdays.

10/9/2012 class @CP2

Today we will be doing a card in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month.
If you are fortunate enough to not know someone who has been effected by this disease, 
there is this amazing woman in Florida, who is a dear friend of my mom. 
After battling breast cancer and surviving she started a program called Breast Friends and would love handmade cards. This has become her mission in life and full time job.
 I would be willing to mail any cards you feel you can't use. 
In today's class kit, please include
Gold edger, pen or ink pad
stamping foam
Enjoy the cooler weather, I just wish a few more balloons would appear!

Jim Purcell

A quick note about Judy's husband ...
Judy just called.  Jim made it through surgery, although it was a long stint.  The kidney they removed was much larger than expected with lots of fatty tissue surrounding it.  It was cancerous.  The doctor said Jim did really well, and Judy is hopeful that she can see him within the next hour or so.  She'll keep me posted as to his condition.
Please keep them in your thoughts.
