Summer Themed Thank You Cards

Greeting Friends!
I am trying to work ahead on designing classes for the summer. Ha! We will see how long I can keep up the pace! :-)

THANK YOU CARDS class is two weeks away, TUESDAY, JUNE 30th from 5-7 pm (4 pm start for those who want to come early.)  

Class has 2 OPENINGS.  Please let me know if you’d like to come.  (I can also offer any card class on a day of your choosing…at your home or my home for a group of 6 or more friends.  Have a “creativity” party!  Your class is free as a thank you for arranging and hosting.)

New technique!  Using pigment inks to shade and create soft colors (peach card).  Best tool…your index finger!  Card inspired by Jennifer McGuire, my stamping, card-inspiring hero!  

While these bright and summer themed cards are designed for saying “thanks” all the cards can be transformed into birthday or thinking of you cards!

You can see more photos of close-ups and insides of cards on my Facebook page 

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Waterfall Event Mini Album

Greetings Everyone!
Gorgeous Sunday!  Hope you are enjoying a perfect day!  Upcoming workshop this Saturday…WATERFALL EVENT MINI ALBUM, 9 am-Noon, June 20th.  Create a mini album (4.5” x 8.5”) that holds photos of special events and journal cards.  This mini album can be adapted to create a book of inspirational sayings and moments you’d like to journal.

Two themes to choose from: Floral Garden or Pacific Cove (designer paper may vary slightly.)  Please let me know which you’d like to make when you register.  Learn to make a hard-cover with chipboard and decorative papers.  Measurement directions to take home…you’ll want to make more!

NOTE:  Score board, corner rounder, and book bone are needed for this workshop.  Crafting pick is really helpful, too.  Save $5 and bring your own two sided tape, runner tape adhesive( with refill or ATG runner), and pop-dots or foam tape/squares.  

I’d like to limit the class size to five people, so everyone has plenty of room to work.  (If more people want to join, a second class will be scheduled for Friday afternoon, June 19th.)  This workshops takes time to prepare, please let me know if you’d like to register by Wednesday 6/17…thanks! 

Have a great day!  Lee
