1/28/2014 class @CP2

Still sticking to my resolution to use what I have,
This stamp is from when both of my kids were in High School Choir,
and it's never seen ink! Today I introduced them.
I pulled out my Gelatos and used them two ways.
The choice is yours.

Along with your basic class kit
bring your 
non stick craft mat
paint brush & water bottle
vintage photo & foam blending tool
edger (I used gold)

Today we will be celebrating
Barbara and Katie's Birthdays.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

1/21/2014 class @CP2

Today we are using something old and something new.
I received this wonderful die for the holidays,
triple square flip it's, as you can see they are out of stock again.
(I'm so grateful to my friend for getting me one!)
We are using scrapbook paper that've had well, forever.
So colors will vary.
Now I know many of you have used these dies in 
one of several classes with Sue Rosenberg,
Today I will show you a trick to extend the back of the card, 
creating an additional flap so you have somewhere to write.

Here's the card closed.
(not happy with the placement of "celebrate", but
we can fix that)

Half way open

All the way open

including a black edger
if you wish to add some color to the images,
bring which ever medium you prefer.

Enjoy your long weekend,
See you Tuesday.

1/7/2014 class @CP2

Let's have a great start to 2014.
Today we will be making perpetual date calendars.
People are often amazed that I remember their birthday or anniversary each year.
This is how I do it, write it down!
I will be using paper that I have in my stash.
Time to use what I have, so each kit will look different.
I am prepping 15 kits, so there is plenty for everyone.

Please bring your basic class kit
You will need to cut apart each month,
so scissors or paper trimmer,
edgers, pens, ink pads or foam blenders
which ever you are comfortable with, 
since you don't know what color your kit will be,
cover your bases (black, brown, metallic)
or choose not to edge.

January Birthdays
19th Katie
27 Barbara
(Party date to be discussed)
Also It's Elizabeth Reil's birthday on the 27th,
remember all those stamps she gave us, 
this would be a great time to remember her.
Cards can be dropped off at Scraps Galore or mailed to the store at
