January card & technique class

Hello Stampers!  I'm so excited that the new Occasions catalog is here!  My wish list is a mile long!  And I'm so lucky that this is Sale-a-Bration so that I can earn FREE product while I'm purchasing everything on my wish list!

I used new products on the cards in this month's Card & Technique class.  Here are the cards that we will be making this month:

January card & technique class, Inkin With DInk Let's look at each one of them individually and what I used on each of them.

Delicate Details stamp set, Inkin With DInk, January card class This card uses the Delicate Details stamp set which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration when you make a $50 purchase!  The Happy Birthday is the Styllized Birthday stamp in the annual catalog.  

Oh So Succulent stamp set, January card class, Inkin With Dink On this card we will use the Oh So Succulent stamp set.  I love this flower from the set!  It is a two step stamp set.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The embossed background is using the Petal Burst embossing folder.

Pretty Kitty stamp set, Inkin With Dink, January card class On this card we will be using the Pretty Kitty stamp set.  In this picture the image isn't colored, but we will be using the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens to color in the image!  I'm so excited that the watercolor pencils came back!  And now they are in our Stampin' Up! colors!

Sealed With Love stamp set, Inkin With Dink, January card class Finally we will be doing a Valentine's Day card!  This card uses the Sealed with Love stamp set and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits.  We will also be using the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. My favorite part of this card is the heart border that is cut from the card!

I would love to have you join us for one of my remaining classes this month!

Throw back calendar

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all have had a wonderful Holiday season!  I took a few weeks off to enjoy with my daughter who was home from college. I really did enjoy her!  After she went back to school I got sick and now I'm finally back at it!  I wanted to share with you today the calendar that my daughters made me for Christmas.  

I have always loved seeing pictures that people have recreated years after they were actually taken.  Last summer I tried to get my girls to do this many times, but they were always too busy!  I was so upset with them at the end of summer that they had never taken a single throw back picture.  

Little did I know, they had a plan!  When my youngest came home over Thanksgiving break, they started taking pictures!  They finished them off over Christmas break, and this is what they created:

When they gave me this, of course I cried!  I couldn't believe the attention to detail!  If they had a tank top on in the first picture, they got them in the second!  They even dug their American Girl dolls out of storage!  My husband played the photographer and helped stage them, except of course for the picture that he had to get in, and my mother took that one!  

It's so nice when your family can surprise you and you know that they truly do love you!

Thanks for stopping by!
