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 www.splitcoaststampers.com. 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!
