Life Happened (& Card Class)

Sometimes life comes at you all at once! That happened to me last week: A death, a birth, a visit from my daughter, a trip to southern Utah, a card class, a shoebox swap, a stamp day, a funeral, an emergency family council and a red-eye flight to send my girl back to D.C. on the same night as Daylight Savings, followed by early morning church!

I should have snapped a pic at the funeral, but didn’t think of that 😦

All in all, it was a great adventure and one I won’t soon forget!

I’ve learned to stop saying, “When life slows down, I will _______” because life isn’t about to slow down anytime soon! Instead, I make time for the things that are important to me, including creativity. If you need a creative escape this weekend, come on over to my Stamp-a-Stack card class!

Stamp and Share

Often as my stampin’ friends are creating cards at one of my classes, I’ll hear them say something like “This is too cute to give away!” The solution was simple: Make more than one card! So when you attend my Card Buffet class (the next one is August 31, click here to register) you’ll create 2 of each of these lovely greeting cards…and you’ll notice there is a variety of styles, so there really is something for everyone! With one to keep and one to share, you can spread the joy to someone else as well.

Creativity is Served at the Card Buffet

Doesn’t receiving a hand-written note in the mailbox make your day? It’s always better than the bills and advertisements, right? I am sure your friends feel the same way, so why not brighten their day with a note in a HAND-STAMPED card??

Need a place to organize your cards? You can also create a card keeper like this (colors may vary) for an additional $5…fill it with your own creations and it makes a great gift!

Easter Comes Early

As Easter is on March 31st this year (and it’s just around the corner), I thought it would be fun to teach a Craft Camp to help prepare for Spring and the celebration of Easter! Here is one of the projects you’ll be creating at the camp; A Spring Sampler!

Yes, it includes the frame! There are other projects we’ll be making that day, and I’ll try to share them over the next few weeks. As always, this will be at my home in Spanish Fork and space is limited, so register early (Paypal link below)!

Easter Craft Camp
Saturday, March 16
1 p.m.
$25
**Bring scissors and SNAIL adhesive** (need a refill? Let me know!)


Creative credit: I pulled ideas from many different places as I created this sampler (and even came up with a few of my own!), but would be remiss if I didn’t give credit for the ribbon/doily to fellow demonstrator Kirsteen Gill’s sampler here as it really makes this home decor project so beautiful!
