Christmas in July




Yes, Christmas in July.  For those "planners", we've gotten a head start on Christmas cards  Although, I have to admit, it was a little odd creating Christmas cards in 90 degree weather!!!  We will be making Christmas cards each month until December ... and will have a chance to create up to 40 cards!  Check out my class schedule for upcoming dates/times.  If you're able to join a class, please email me for your reservation.

I typically don't create cutsie cards, but these two stamp sets were hard to resist.  Perfect for dog or cat lovers alike!  Some of the class attendees were feeling "brave" and followed an example that I had done with the kitty (shown below). They decided to have some fun with the puppy and put lights all over it.  They are just drawn freehand with a black pen, then dabbed with markers for the bulbs.  And for those not-so-adventurous stampers, they did just plain, which are still quite adorable, don't you think?

I have to admit, I'm not in love with all of the Paper Pumpkin kits as they arrive ... however, making alternatives has been fun!  Here is an alternative from the March kit.

Happy 21st Birthday

My daughter-in-law asked what I have for a 21st birthday for a guy (and needed it in 15 minutes).  So, this is what I came up with.  It was a hit!  I love the Mixed Drinks set and it was perfect with the beer mug.  The foam on top even has a little sparkly with the clear wink of stella.

A Little Hello

Just sending a little hello.  Such a cute card, actually CASED from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog.  The colors are pool party, calypso coral and whisper white.  The designer paper is from A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.  The bundle for the stamp set and punch is Badges & Banners Stamp Set and Best Badge Punch.  I also used the new duet banner punch for the sentiment.  Just a nice "happy" card.
