FINALLY a card class!

It's been SO long since I had any classes.  We've been remodeling since last October.  I have altered something in virtually every room of the it's been like moving out and back in, but without a storage unit.  Which means I have been shuffling STUFF from one room to another and back again. My stamping room is somewhat functional again.  I'm just getting back into my groove. Here are photos of this months classes.

This first card uses the June  SOTM.
 The colors are brown bag, olive and barn red on vanilla creme paper.

For the next card I used the adorable new Cherry O papers.  This stamp set is an exclusive from the Cherry O workshop on the go packet.  Too cute!


 The third card is an easy one using the "A" size Posey stamp.  I'll show you how to do some simple paper pleating and stamp "kissing".  These new A size stamps are great.  You could whip up a ton of cute little cards and the stamp set is only $7.95!

 The last card is a pocket card made with envelopes and the new Splendor paper pack.  The outside looks like a cute little open it up and have 2 pockets with pull outs for pictures, journaling or even gift cards. 

I'm going to start a new schedule for classes.  Tom works at Disneyland on Friday I am going to offer a Friday night class from 7 to 10.  I'll do the same class on the next Saturday morning starting at 10 until 3.... this gives you a little flexibility to fit me into your schedule Ü.  This month the dates are Friday, June 11th and Saturday, June 12th.

Along with the cards class, I'll have a separate table set up for a 2 page layout.  Each class will be $15. You'll need to reserve your spots in advance so I will have enough kits prepped.  There is a considerable amount of time spent prepping kits, so if you reserve a spot the kit is yours even if you can't attend.  I'll make every attempt to stamp items for you so that you can assemble the items on your own! I'm hoping this will work out for you...if not, I may have to adapt my plan!

For the first scrap class, I'll be using the special kit we offered in April and May, Miracle.  I was able to buy 7 extra kits, so that's all the spots I'll have open.  If you placed an order and already recieved the can come put it together for FREE!   Just bring yours with you!

Here are two of the four pages the kit will make!  Check out the kit contents!!!!

CTMH June SOTM blog hop

It's so hard to believe that it's the first day of June!  Thank you for visiting our  CTMH  SOTM blog hop.  If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning, then you should have come here from  Wanda Riley's blog . If you just came across this hop by chance, then you can continue from here and just click on the person listed at the end of this post.  When you get back to me you know you've seen them all. 

 The June SOTM is perfect for the generally neglected masculine cards.Wonderful Friend D1422 is a great set of 9 stamps. When I started creating this card, I had no plans of using the obvious "Father's day tie".  However, things don't always turn out how you think they will.  I have moved my stamping room (SUCH a huge mess) downstairs and ran across our display boards from the CTMH convention in 2001 that had been tucked away in a corner.  This was my first year of teaching at the CTMH annual convention.  There was this old card pattern that I hadn't used since then...and guess what...PERFECT for the tie.  The more I played, the more I liked the card, pictured both closed and open.

Here are the measurements in case you want to make one of your own.  Card size is 51/2 by 8 1/4.  Score at 2" and 4 3/4".  I used the new Passages paper packet, which was kind of the obvious choice. I wish you all a wonderful Father's Day and I'll see you in the beginning of July for the next SOTM blog hop!  Now hop on over to   Sarita Schraeder's blog to see what fun things she did with this stamp set!

Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30, 2010!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even FREE!

May SOTM blog hop

Happy First Day of May!  Thank you for visiting our CTMH SOTM blog hop.  If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning, then you should have come here from  Adeline's Blog . If you just came across this hop by chance, then you can continue from here and just click on the person listed at the end of this post.  When you get back to me you know you've seen them all.

I remember when I was little, our teachers would have us prepare a small basket of flowers to hang on a door knob.  I would go home, hang the basket, ring the doorbell and run to hide. The thought of my mothers' smile still warms my heart.

The May SOTM has covered ALL bases...every Holiday, every sentiment. This is a great set of plaques to use on your cards, on scrapbook pages and other projects.  It’s so versatile…you just check the box for which part of the sentiment you want to use, or, check them all.

 I decided to use it for a thank you card.  I easily should have covered ALL squares to thank my Mom, but decided above all...thank you for being my friend.  Someone you know you can always count on.

Our new Splendor paper packet has a nice, breezy feel to it. I fell in love with the package of Splendor Designer Brads that I used for the flower centers!
