Christmas cards, anyone?

 I taught my first class last Wednesday and wanted to share some of the cards we made.  We made 2 Christmas cards and 2 Autumn cards and a Birthday card.
 This set is called St. Nick and is a set of 5 and is only $13.95.

This set is called Harvest Home and is $18.95.
 This picture I took on my cell phone and it didn't turn out that good.  The card was very nice.
 This set is called The Present  and is $22.95.  It has 10 stamps total.
 This set is Royal Birth and is $22.95.

I made several cards with this set, I think it is perfect for birthdays.

 This one I embossed the crown with clear embossing powder.

This is another variation of the St. Nick card.

 I have also been playing with the Circle of Love set that goes with the new Magnifique papers.  I love this set and the papers.

I did the emboss resist technique with the peacock and then used a sponge applicator to add ink to the areas that I wanted to have color.

I added a piece of the same paper inside and added the sentiment and feather.

Here I used a kaleidecolor multi-colored stamp pad and embossed with clear embossing powder.

 This is a 3" x 3" easel card with some added pearls on the peacocks head.  I added glitter to the feather.

This is another 3" x 3" card.

I stamped a flourish inside this one.

This month is one of my busiest months.  We have 5 birthdays in our house in October and Grandpa is out of the country.  He has been calling every day and it is nice to hear his voice.  He sent some very cute cards to the Grandkids and Dawn for their birthdays.  

We had a Dress-up tea party for the Girls and the Boys went to Lazar tag. Here are a few pics of the tea party.  We had areas for the gifts for each girl, Mary's favorite color is pink and Hailey's is Purple.

We had pink and purple table cloths for the girls and their guests.

We had fancy tea cups and saucers.
This is the nail station.  We stamped on their nails.
This was the Jewelery table with lots of clip on earrings, necklaces,  bracelets and rings.  The bigger the better.  and the shoes sat under the table.
Charlie made a frame for 4 mirrors to stand together for the girls to see what they looked like.  And yes we had hats galore.
This was the clothes rack where the girls got to pick what they wanted to wear.
We had sandwiches cut into shapes like dresses, shoes, purses and hats, along with veggies and dip, jello with rings in side and Petite Fours for dessert.
We even had a purse cake.  I used grape flavored licorice for the handle.

 Miss Hailey and Miss Mary waiting for the guests to arrive so they could eat.
Miss Hailey in Go Go Boots.  The boots were a huge hit at the party.  Everyone had to try them on.

Miss Mary loves this dress and had to try on the Cheetah print shoes.

And of course Uncle James had to try to get us to stamp on his toes too, but they were just too smelly, so we all said no.  He even put the toe separator between his toes.

I hope you enjoyed my stories and I hope to be back soon with more.

If you are interested in my classes go to and join our group, there you will get up to date information on what I will be teaching and when the next class is.

I am getting ready to vend at the BCT Bazaar again November 6th from 10-4 at the Beavercreek school.  I am also going to be a vendor at the Carus School fundraiser on November 13th.  If you want more information on either of these bazaars send me an email and I will get complete details to you.

Happy Scrapin',
