Succulent Garden Suite

I have a Spotlight class once a month and concentrate on one suite of products, this month we used the Succulent Garden Suite and made these three cards,

This one was the simplest.

This one was a little more involved but still CAS.

And the last one was the most detailed and my favorite of the three. Starting next month I am making the Spotlight Class as a Class to Go option  for my long distance customers.  It will be free with the purchase of the Spotlight Stamp Set and Dies or purchased without buying the stamps and dies.  Thanks for stopping by!

More Succulents

I love when I can use my stamps ans dies for making home decor as well as cards!  This little pot of succulents is so pretty on my desk and I won't kill it by forgetting to water it.

I found this flower ribbon in my stash as I was trying to clean out and organize this week.  It's retired but I don't mind.  Thanks for stopping by!

April Bundle Class

Every month I offer a Bundle class, it is free for anyone who orders any bundle during the previous month.  You can attend even if you haven't ordered a bundle but want to pay for the class.  This is April's bundle class featuring the Birthday Blast set from the Occasions catalog.  I goofed on this you see what I did....I didn't order the bundle....only the dies! 

This is my favorite of the three, a colorful birthday card using the candle border bunch as well.

And a bright and cheery Hello card.

and a graduation card I featured earlier as well.  So, this is a very versatile set even without the stamps(which I have since ordered).  Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy Today

 Can you believe it, I am posting two days in a row.  I used the dies and stamps from the Eastern Palace Suite which will be available for purchase when the new catalog goes live June 1.  I paired it up with my favorite retiring In Color, Mint Macaron.  It is a quite simple card for sure but that is about all I have time for these days.  My Shelby has Senior pictures today and then I have to make her graduation cards plus two weddings to complete.  Thanks for stopping by!

I have put off making graduation cards as long as I can, I have a high school senior this year and I just haven't wanted to think about her graduating.  She is attending our local Junior College for two years so I do get to keep her home for that long.  Thanks for stopping by!

Eastern Palace Suite

Today's card was made using a suite from the new Stampin' Up! catalog available June 1, it is called Eastern Palace Suite. It also included three new In Colors, two of which I used here.  I haven't done much this week, my kiddos have been on Spring Break and they do tend to keep me busy.  I did sneak away yesterday by myself long enough to do a class at a Library in Marion which was a lot of fun.  They also asked me to do a program for their Summer Adult Reading Program as well as one for the kids which should be interesting.  Thanks for stopping by!

You Are Amazing

I have been Spring cleaning my card shop and trying to get a grip on my organized mess.  While doing so, I came across some retired items so I decided to use them up in my children's birthday class this month.  This card uses the retired Maze Game piece.  It has two little metal balls inside the maze piece that you try to get to the center which should have something stamped there.  Can't see it?  no, that's because I forgot to stamp it and didn't notice until the card was finished.
