Dreamin' Big class layout 1

I really REALLY love this fun new paper... it can be girly or more boyish simply by flipping the paper.  I really love the bug side of the floral paper... and with spring a month away it seemed fitting to create a class with an outdoorsy theme.

Today I'm showing layout 1 of my March class.

Sorry for the glare- this layout was hanging on my "class wall" when I took the photo.
There are no special cuts with this layout- I used the Dreamin' Big paper pack, embellishment pack and some cardstock (cocoa, slate, white daisy)

There are two more layouts that go along with this class- I'll post them later this weekend :)

Card kit by mail: NEW

I am so excited... I have a BRAND NEW card kit by mail to offer!!

I loved this stamp set so much when it was available that I hoarded a few to offer a card kit.
The stamp set retails $17.95 and it's no longer available... so You can purchase this kit and it's INCLUDED!

This kit creates 4 cards- all the paper and embellishments are pre-cut and ready BUT you do need to do your own stamping.

Here's what you'll need:
A black ink (either memento or archival ink since you'll be coloring some of the flowers)
A method to color:  I used my blending pen with ruby, sorbet, pixie, thistle, fern ink pads.  If you choose to use colored pencils, you won't need as many ink colors

I did use ruby to stamp the sentiment on the first card shown... but you could use black or another color of choice.

You need scissors, regular tape-style adhesive and 3-d foam tape.

I did use a black journaling pen to create stitch lines on one card but that's optional.

I already pre-watercolored the background on the 3rd card down.

If you'd like one of my 5 kits... you can purchase it through the paypal link below.  It's set to only accept 5 sales and at this point this is the only method of payment for this kit.

The kits are $25 and there's no additional fee for shipping.  They'll ship within 48 hours of purchase.

Thanks for looking!

Love you more than Grilled Cheese

This stamp set is so super cute!  It's called "silly sayings".   I love these fun sentiments.  The red line around means they coordinate with one of our Cricut collections. (Cricut Artistry)
I created this simple card with some retired paper, clear gems and the new blush shimmer ribbon.

Forever card

Here's a fun card my class created in January.  Just by changing the inside sentiment it could be a Valentines, Anniversary or even a birthday card.  I used some retired paper from the Charlotte pack and the January stamp of the month.  I used my watercolor paints  to add color to the flowers.  Su fun!

Cut above Thank you turned Christmas card

Just thought I'd share my repurposing of a "thank you" card kit for my Christmas Card class last fall. 

We routinely sell "cut above card kits" where all the pieces are pre-cut.  (note this kit is retired but we have others available currently)
So this kit came like this:

with the intention of creating this:

But then I created the card below for my class to use up these kits.

It's hard to tell but the snowflake is cut from white glitter paper.  This card was a hit at my class!

Curious about our other "cut above kits" ?  click here to see what is currently available

Note:  cut above kits do not come with stamp sets- you can use whatever you own, or pick up the sentiment of your choice!  This makes these cards very versatile and a little less costly if you already own stamps.

Sugar Rush

I am loving the new papers CTMH released January 1-

This month my classes are using the fun Sugar Rush paper pack... who doesn't love DONUTS???

The first layout holds 7 photos!  not bad!

The second layout uses a couple of the pre-designed picture my life style pieces from the paper pack that is designed to be cut up..

I love the embellishments included in the complement pack of this set- there are some fun metallic pieces that just add a touch of class.  I'm planning to use the layout below for my brand new (and first!) great niece... so fun!

These layouts are so fun.  The back of the donut paper in the top photo... Is ice cream!  So you could easily use this paper for birthday party photos, summer day, or a ton of other uses!
