This Week’s Update

New Christmas Class Posted 

I’ve just posted a New (Bonus) Christmas Card Class… this class will include an Afternoon Tea mid-way and ALL cards will be very detailed WOW Cards… We’ll make 5 new designs, including an Ugly Sweater Card, a Santa & Reindeer Twist & Pop Card, a Star of Light Card, a Be Joyful Shaker Card, and a beautiful Snowy Sleigh Card.

This class will immediately follow the Christmas Banner Class (please note the time change for Banner Class).  I’ll be offering a PIZZA LUNCH for those attending BOTH Classes, that way you can stay for lunch rather than leaving and coming back.  You’ll need sustanance to get through the long day!  But boy… will these gorgeous projects be worth it!


I’m Thinking Pink

While I realize October is Breast Cancer Awareness month… my “Think Pink” is because I’m on “baby watch” this week… my newest little granddaughter, Summer Grace, is due this week… I’m just waiting for “that” call!  


A Quick Reminder

Class Registration ends the 25th of the month for the following month’s classes.  Unless I add a special class (as above).  This will be my new policy moving forward. This allows me plenty of time to plan projects and order the supplies needed without having lots of extras left over or doing a last minute scramble and paying overnight fees…


Spring Retreat

While I know we’re barely into Fall and we are all focused on the holidays… (myself included), don’t forget to register for our Spring Retreat which will be held February 24 – 26, 2017.  I know it’s sounds far, far away into the future, but it’s fast approaching.

Have a GREAT week and don’t forget to stock up on Designer Series Paper while it’s on sale!

Countdown to Christmas…

Well the holidays are fast approaching!  They really sneak up on us here in Texas since it still feels like summer here.  No leaves changing color anytime soon, we’re still wearing shorts & flip flops and (sadly) running the A/C and watering our lawns!  So, the holidays tend to sneak up on us, or at least it sure feels that way.  October is the month we typically “winterize” our yard, which for me is what signifies the holidays are coming and (YEAH) no yard work for two or three months!  How about you?  What makes it’s feel like Fall/Holidays for you?

This year I’ve decided to do a “Countdown to Christmas” series and will be posting something new for you each week.

Countdown to Christmas ~ Week 1

This week I’m sharing a specialty fold card I recently saw on a friend and fellow demo’s blog, Julie Kettlewell.  I had the pleasure of stamping with Julie in her awesome studio last Spring while in the UK.  These cards use the new Designer Series Paper, Candy Cane Lane (#141981), and the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle (#143493) both in the Holiday Catalog.

You can view a tutorial at Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on these adorable & fun Four Fold Cards Here.  Or… come make one yourself at my next Creative Cards Class November 3rd., #stampinup, #funfoldcard, #cookiecutterchristmas,, #stampinup, #christmas, #candycanelane, #cookiecutterchristmas, #holidaycatalog
