Last week I had my first Cards N Stuff class! Here are the 4 cards with envelopes and Mary Poppins purse project we made. Remember the bag that Mary Poppins pulled tons of stuff out of and it never seemed to end - that bag was bigger inside that appeared, and the little petite purse we made was like that :-)
We used both current and retired Stampin Up products.
This was a fun technique card to do - it is the triple time technique card that Dawn Olschefe shared on her blog. The little vintage tag was the perfect detail to make this pretty card special. The Reason to Smile stamp set was used and you can get it for only $5 if you order $50 or more of Stampin Up products from me!
Bright Blossoms stamp set, Summer Smooches designer paper, and the stripes embossing folder (all by Stampin Up) were used to make this cute card - and everyone enjoyed coloring their flowers stamp with markers!
The monochromatic green card used the new Stampin Up stamp set, Betsys Blossoms, and the little leaves from the bird punch set added the branch for the bird to sit on. Both single and pearls in a line were used on it too. The Mary Poppins purse was the Stampin Up diecut, petite purse, which really speeded up making it.
Everyone got to make a surprise project too! And each person got to pick a free gift from the Thank you for coming basket.
Here is the room all set up for class, and eating snacks! Gotta keep our energy up for all that hard work lol.
I had a display board of cards I received in swaps using new items from the Stampin Up catalog.
I finally got to use my new IKEA table and chairs - I know I not only learned new things from the ladies, but hope they learned some new cardmaking techniques using Stampin Up products. If you want to join us, I will be having this class every month!
The next class will be Sunday, August 12th at 4 - 6 pm and repeating on Monday, August 13th at 11 - 1 pm. Send me an email if you would like info - Just click on the Email Mary button on my new blog page OK? Hope you can join us for a class!
Since I will be attending the annual Stampin Up Convention in Salt Lake City, I will be bringing back some new ideas to share!!
