    Ornament Class

    With the overwhelming response to the Ornament on the cover of the Holiday Mini I decided to hold a class. The class was Nov 1 and we made 3 different Ornaments and 1 quick card.

     Supplies for the Large Ornament:

    Stamp Set:
    128048 (wood) 128051 (clear) Ornament Keepsakes

    101650 Very Vanilla
    126901 Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper

    126861 Gumball Green
    126966 Cherry Cobbler

    127816 Holiday Ornament Framelits
    127555 Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
    125577 Large Pearl Basic Jewels
    127841 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler
    104199 Linen Thread

    Glue Gun
    Hemp (for hanger)
    I also stamped "Heart Of Christmas" (#128129)  and cut with Label Framelits for the back.

    Supplies for the Smaller Ornament:

    Stamp Set:
    128030 (wood) 128033 (clear) Greetings of the Season

    101650 Very Vanilla
    126901 Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper
    127885 Glimmer Paper in Champagne

    126949 Real Red

    127816 Holiday Ornament Framelits
    127813 Snow Flurry Bigz Die

    I also stamped "Heart Of Christmas" (#128129) and cut with Label Framelits for the back.
     For the smallest ornament I purchased a porcelain ornament at a Big Box store,
    I then inked up the Tree from "Christmas Lodge" ( #123767 w; 123769 c) with Versamark and stamped on ornament. Don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy (#103083) first. Then I sprinkled with Gumball Green Embossing Powder (#128981). It will take awhile for the powder to melt, my tip is to lay it on a towel while heating as it will get very hot. I used Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler (#125585) for adding berries and it dried very nicely.

    And, of course, if you need any supplies for your Holiday crafting, just contact me or visit my online store here

    Hallowe'en Class Treats

    Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit

    I just finished these ADORABLE treats for my son's pre-school class. I love how Stampin' Up! made this economical  kit.
    This is the card that I made to put inside the bags so that his friends know who gave them this awesome treat bag. I popped up the spiders and Frankenstein with Dimensionals.
    I ran the glassine bags thru the Big Shot in the Spiderweb Embossing Folder before filling with treats. I used the Decorative Label Punch and Pumpkin Pie to add a little color to the printed tags. I also used a couple Dimensionals to attach the tag to the bag. 

    Project Recipe
    Stamp Set: Googly Ghouls, Seasonal Sayings
    Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
    Ink: Black Stazon

    Regional Swaps 2

    As promised here are some of the swaps that I received from fellow Demos at the Hamilton Regionals:

    This beautiful card was done by Stephanie VanDorp. Click here to go to her blog.
    What I love about this card: The colors look great together and the silver embossing makes it look so elegant. The polka dot embossing is so subtle put perfect.

    Unfortunately there was no name on the back of this card. If anyone knows the creator do not hesitate to leave me a comment and let me know. What I love about this card: I love the scallop square shape. The different textures circles are just fabulous especialy being made from the new Core'dinations card stock in the new Holiday Mini. The mittens are so stinkin cute and the matching punch makes it a breeze to cut out.

    Again this card didn't have a name. What I love about this card: the monochromatic colour. You could so easily change the sentiment and turn it into a masculine card.

    Happy Crafting!!

    Hamilton Regionals

    I LOVE this company!! Last Saturday Shelli and the gang came all the way from Utah to spend the day with us.  This was my first Stampin' Up! event and I was not disappointed. All the presentations from the Home Office Staff and other Top Demonstrators were awesome. Shelli demonstrated this awesome tag that I just have to teach at an upcoming class (visit my website for class dates):

    Isn't this just gorgeous!! Here are some pictures of some of the displays that they had for us.

    It was such and awesome and inspiring day and I met some great people. This is just ONE of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. If you would like some info on joining my team, feel free to email me today. I love making new friends.

    Watch for tomorrow's post as I will showcase my swap that I made and some swaps that I received.

    Happy Crafting!!
