Little Cards Are So Cute and So Much Fun

While I continue to recover from my shoulder replacement surgery, I have a cute little card AND a cute little video for you to enjoy.
Click here to see the video.
A Sneak Peek at 2018:

Scraps and Prayers will remain the same ...
     - We'll meet on the second Monday of each month / 5:30-7:30
     - Begins in February.
Saturday Stampers will change ...
     -  I have been rethinking our schedule for this class.  One thing that's clear is that November turns out to not be a good month for a Saturday class.  It seems to be as busy as December.
In 2018, we will be meeting on alternating months --- February - October.

I already have lots of exciting projects in mind for us to enjoy together!

It's A Great Time to Be Creative!

This will be a short post because I'm still only able to use one hand/arm and I'm not very good at typing with one hand.  Our Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog went live today and they're chock full of fabulous products.  Click on the PDF links over on the left and see for yourself.  While I'm waiting for my shoulder replacement to heal, I'll have to be content to try to write plans and make sketches for my own future designs.
Here are some great links to see a lot of our fun, new products in action.  Enjoy!

A Thank You and a Peek At What Lies Ahead

Wow!  This post today will be my post # 1922.  I've been at this a long time!  I enjoy sharing many of my card creations and projects with you here on my blog.  I hope that I can teach and inspire you to try some of these ideas on your own or, better yet, come to one of my classes.
I couldn't have said it better.  As we begin a new year, I just wanted to say a thank you for visiting my blog.  I truly love what I do and I don't think I could NOT share it even if I tried.  I am a bit passionate about what I do:)

Why, yes! I do have gift certificates!!!

Out of ideas to suggest to others for a gift for yourself?  Out of ideas to give a fellow crafter?  You've come to the right place!  I can give you gift certificates -- for any amount you'd care to purchase.  You pay for the gift certificate.  Your special recipient opens their gift (certificate) and shops at their convenience, and they can settle up with me if there is a difference in amounts after they place their order.  Sounds easy and fun, doesn't it!  It is!
Here are some of my previous gift card / gift certificate / cash holders I've made, in case you'd like to make one for the certificates you purchase:






... and a laugh for the day:

Last Month's Scraps and Prayers Class Christmas Project

Today's post is brought to you by some of my Scraps and Prayers group.  We made a Christmas decor project at our last class.  We had SO much fun!  I love this group.  It's open to anyone so, if you live in the area, you might want to give this one a try.  You'll leave with a smile on your face.  I promise. 
Our frame is an 8" round embroidery hoop.  The group loved this project - except for using some of my old adhesive sheets:)  Getting the backing off proved to be a bit of a challenge.  I assured them that the new sheets were much easier to use.  As I've said, I'm trying really hard to use up my 'stash' instead of hoarding it all.
We attached our DSP to a piece of cardboard backing from a DSP pack.  They're handy for so many things.  I then hot glued the DSP piece to the back of the hoop.  Speaking of hoops, there are some teeny, tiny hoops coming out in our upcoming Occasions Catalog.  They are adorable!!!  I hope to place my pre-order today and it will surely include some of these cuties.
We used up some of my old Sticky Tape by attaching it all around the outside edge of the hoop.  We peeled off the backing and attached some bright red ribbon.  Our old, retired bitty heart and star punches were very handy for this project.  I don't often part with a punch.  We used Red Glimmer paper for the hearts and Silver Foil for the stars.
NOTE:
There is a downside to hoarding retired products.  I recently made a large quantity of large gift bags for my daughter to use in her Christmas Shoppe at our church tomorrow.  I thought this would be a good time to use up the rest of my Sticky Tape.  Wrong!  I had several rolls left.  They were very old and absolutely stuck tight together.  I tried and tried and could not get them to unroll so I could use them.  I had to throw them all away.  I ended up using Fast Fuse ... and it was fast:)
I gave each person a Green Sprig to use on their project, but they didn't like how they wouldn't stay where they wanted them to be.  They'll use them for something else later.  No, the sprig below was not left like that.  I had a bit of cute/sassy actions going on that night.  My adhesive sheets brought out the best in everyone:)  Like I said, we have a lot of fun.
Below are two of their finished projects.  I love them!
Aren't these pretty?
The Latest Scoop:
I HAVE 2 REMAINING KITS FROM OUR CHRISTMAS RETREAT. / EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MAKE 18 CARDS! / $40.00
December 11 -- Scraps and Prayers Class:
     5:30-7:30 / $15.00 / Christmas Cards and Tags
It's going to be a party atmosphere at our last class for 2017.  I've even been working on a hand made present for you!  The class is filling up fast, so be sure to reserve your spot right away!
