Stamp Set of the Month Class - Just Believe

Its that time of month again where I focus my class on one stamp set only. With the price of the class you get the stamp set in your choice of wood or clear. Here are the projects we made this week:

After we discovered how easy it was to stamp on candles I surprised my ladies with making a Just Believe candle. It was so much fun to see them so excited! And its sooooo easy. For credits, ingredients, measurements and directions, click here.

I kept going back and forth on this card, but boy did they like it. I really liked what one of my customers did. Instead of stamping the En Francais onto the DSP paper (you can hardly see it in the photo), she stamped it in white on the black card underneath. Then she tore two corners of the DSP so you could see the written words underneath. Really beautiful.

This is a card I have been wanting to make for quite awhile. It is so easy. I could not for the life of me find any instructions on how to do the diamond, so I came up with my own way of doing it. Check back for ingredients, measurements and directions. When you see this link go live.

This is one of my favorite cards. Once again, you'll have to check back for the link as I haven't loaded the credits and the rest of the deets yet. Instead of the medium sized window pane in the picture (cause I ran out), we used the small one. I think I like it better!!

And finally,

Many of you have seen this card before as this is the card I took to swap generally at Convention this past year. These ladies had not seen it so I couldn't resist bringing it out again for them to do. You can get all the information to make this card here.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Anything But a Card Class

I've been a busy, busy girl and am quite behind on loading projects from my classes. This was a really fun class and it was called Anything But a Card Class. Basically the idea is to use Stampin' Up! products but to make inexpensive, but lovely gifts, personal items, etc. What fun we had. Here is a group shot:

The only item missing from this photo is the necklace we made from a domino. I forgot to take a picture, but I have a photo of one I did last year so I'll show it.

Okay, first we made the ornament placecard holders and large ornament photo holder. You can get more details about those from my last blog entry.

Then we decorated these adorable little plates that I picked up for $2.99 (on sale) at Hobby Lobby.

Next, the coasters. I read tons online about the different ways to do them. I found the easiest for me was to just stamp them with Stazon, color them in with Stampin' Up! markers, and then seal them with a clear sealant spray. My clients all made matching coasters. Mine are different just for inspiration. I do love to have them down ready for my clients' drinks when they come to my house for a class.

Next we played with making jewelery You can either use the Stampin' Up! chains, or what I prefer to use is coordinating ribbon. I always get compliments when I wear mine.

Next we experimented with etched glass. Who knew that it was so darn easy!! You can get directions to make most all of these items from The picture really does not do this justice.

Finally, my favorite project...stamping on candles. Isn't it adorable? This project was definitely cased but the name escapes me at the moment. I will put up that name, I promise. I'm so late in posting anything that I wanted to get something online for you all to see.

If you've stopped by to take a look, won't you please leave me a message and let me know which project is your favorite!
