On Saturday, November 16th I am offering a special full-day class so you can get a head start on your Christmas cards. You will get to create 12 cards (2 each of 6 designs) and enjoy a delicious hot lunch as well. I’ve rented a special venue for this event, so we have lots of room to spread out and craft together! I think it’s going to be a wonderful day, and of course there will be some fun surprises to enjoy as well.

The workshop cost is $59, but until October 20th I am offering an Early Bird discount price of $54. So don’t delay – you have only a few more days to get yourself that discount! Sign up today to secure your spot.

Here are some of the designs I’ve been working on for our class.

I hope you’ll be able to attend this wonderful class, which is sure to start your holiday season off right.

Happy Stampin’!

Same colour cardstock: 4 x 5.25”

I held my second Fancy Folds class on the weekend and it was terrific!! Technically, I held the class twice, because what I learned from the first round of Fancy Folds is that a small class size is key – so I split the group of eight attendees into two groups of four, and held the same class on both Saturday and Sunday. Safe to say I am now super familiar with all these fancy fold cards!!

The Pop Up Slider card is one I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time. The stitched rectangle framelits make it really easy to do, using the partial die-cutting technique to create the flap on the front of the card that slides up to reveal the stamped sentiment underneath.

Pop Up Stage Card

How gorgeous is the Pop Up Stage card? And yes, this magnificent creation folds flat to mail! This card comes together really quickly and is beautiful in person.

Shutter Card

This is the Shutter Card, definitely a challenging card to create. It took a bit of experimenting to make it look the way I wanted it to. However, the amazing effect is well worth it!

swing arm

And finally, the swing arm card. I first saw this card at a demonstrator meeting earlier this year. Again, it’s one that takes a bit of effort to create, but it’s worth it!

If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Fancy Folds class, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos of each step, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

Today for our Stampin’ Sunday video, we’re making a really simple gift box out of a single sheet of 6 x 6” DSP! The perfect size to fill with any kind of small treats – such as mini chocolate bars.

I love using Stampin’ Up! products to make and send cards to all my special friends and family, but there are so many other creative projects I can make as well! Using cardstock, ink, and paper to create beautiful 3D gift items is super fun, and terrifically useful as the holidays approach (hello stocking stuffers!).

On Saturday, August 24th I am offering a special class where we will create six small gift items. The $35 workshop fee includes a pack of 12 x 12” Designer Series Paper of your choice, which I will cut, score, and prepare for you so you are ready to create all these fabulous items at the class. You will also get to take home a full-colour tutorial package so you can recreate all these projects on your own! The registration deadline is Thursday, August 8th, so sign up today!

This post-it note holder is a great item to have on hand in your purse, your car, your backpack – always ready for you to jot down a quick note, shopping list, or phone number.

The self-closing box is a fun and creative way to package a small gift! The box and lid are attached, which makes the whole project quite sturdy.

I love this adorable little star-shaped treat holder, the perfect size for a Ferrero Rocher or other round chocolate!

The DSP mini-purse is one I just had to create, as I find them so adorable and versatile. These could hold a whole cellophane bag full of goodies!

This triangle treat box is a really fun and simple design, with no cutting necessary. Perfect for chocolate nuggets or other small treats!

This square chocolate treat holder is one I often give to my workshop attendees or party guests, who have asked for it to be included in our workshop. It’s the perfect size to hold a Ghiradelli chocolate square!

These items are great for hostess gifts, table favours, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, craft fairs, and more. I hope you’ll join me at the class – but if you can’t attend, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

A few weeks ago, I received this card in a swap from another demonstrator, Tanya Sousa. I had seen this fold on Pinterest, etc. but wasn’t too fussed about it … then I saw it in person and immediately fell in love (of course, it doesn’t hurt that Tanya used one of my favourite new DSPs, Bird Ballad!) One of the cool things about this layout is that it gives you a really easy way to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. Here’s how to make it!

Tanya

Cut your DSP to card front size (4 x 5.25″).

Line it up in your trimmer at 2-5/8″. Cut from 1-1/2″ to the edge.

bird3

Fold back both sides and crease with your bone folder.

bird2

Decorate your card as desired.

bird ballad

How simple is that?!
