Successful Spring Open House!

Held my Open House this weekend and loved seeing my customers, old as well as new! We enjoyed good company, good food (chili on Friday night and chicken salad on Saturday) and some fun projects which I designed with the beautiful Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. The colors featured in this paper packet are Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  

6x6 Spring Scrapbook Page

The first project was a 6×6 Spring scrapbook page. I stamped the medallion on Whisper White cardstock, punched it out with a circle punch, mounted it on the Small Round Metal Edge Tag, added a white half pearl from the Pretties Kit and popped it all up with dimensionals making a beautiful spotlight on this small page.  You can always add this smaller page to a 12×12 page by adding more designer series paper onto your 12×12 cardstock and then your 6×6 will become your focal point or embellishment on the page.

Mother's Day Card with Matching Envelope

The second project was a Mother’s Day card using those beautiful large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Pretties kit. They are originally white, but we dyed this one a Rich Razzleberry by using an Aqua Painter and dipping it into some Rich Razzleberry ink and painting it onto the flower. You should start light and add more color as you go along.  The shade you desire is all up to you.

Scallop Bag Easter Treat

  The third project was a cute little Easter treat bag using the Sizzix Big Shot and the Bigz XL Scallop Bag die. It’s extremely easy to put these little bags together with a few strips of Sticky Strip and would make great favor bags for a wedding. 

Last Chance – Big Shot Club and Sale-A-Bration
Some of you have already taken advantage of my Big Shot Club deal (see posting on January 22, 2010), but it’s not too late to take advantage of this great deal! I have extended the special through March 31, however, it will be gone soon and so will Sale-A-Bration. With the Big Shot Club Deal you earn 3 FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, or designer series paper or a scallop trim punch.  By purchasing the Big Shot Club deal you get to take the Big Shot Class for FREE! If you have ordered the Big Shot, it will be here just in time to use it for my class to be held on April 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Anyone who has not purchased the Big Shot can still take the class for $15.00. We will complete 4 projects in class. Please register no later than April 5 to attend.
