Teacher Survival Kit Class

On August 21st I am hostessing a Teacher Survival Kit Class!  This gift is fun and easy to put together and will really get your child's teacher in a good mood for the first day of school.  Each kit comes with the box, all the goodies inside and a really cute tag and poem.  The poem goes on the inside of the box.  Each kit is $5.

This is a cute card to give to anyone at the school at anytime during the school year.  Especially great for teacher or secretary appreciation day.  Each card $1.

The kit includes starbursts, mints, lifesavers, gum, nuts, bandaids, crayons, and paper clips.

August layout

Our August layout was a beach theme.  It is very simple to leave room for you to embellish and put pictures and journaling on it.  The one thing I wouldn't do again is use the brown spritzer.  I thought I would like the effect, but I don't.  Spritzer is definitely optional!

August 2012 10 for $10

Here are the 5 cards we will be making at the 10 for $10.  You get to make 2 of each card.  There are still spaces available so call me right away if you want your spot.  August 16th or 17th from 7pm to 9:00pm.  There will be snacks and prizes!  Also free shipping for any orders placed that night.  If you are coming please bring your own adhesive, scissors, small paper cutter and if you have a big shot you wouldn't mind bring to share I would love it.  A couple of the cards use big shot dies and if we had 2 big shots going around that would make things go a little more quickly.

March Card Club

We will be using a brayer and practicing the ghosting technique.

This is just another example of how you can use your brayer using two tones. We will be making the top card and if you don't want to do flowers you can ghost with the foot prints! Bring your own brayer if you have one, also scissors and small paper cutter.

February Card Club and Scrapbook Club

We will be doing the glittered dryer sheet technique this month for our Technique Geeks card club. Bring your own scissors. I have pink and orange micro-glitter so if you would like a different color, you can bring a different color for you to use. Really simple and really cute!

This is the scrapbook layout for this month. I kept it pretty generic so you could use it for a birthday or for something miscellaneous. It's nice to have those kinds of layouts around. If you have a large oval punch, bring it. Other helpful things to bring would be a small star stamp if you have one and tempting turquoise stamp pad. Everyone will have be taking turns cutting out their stars with the big shot so if you happen to have a big shot and a stars #2 sizzix die that would make the process go a little more quickly as well! See you all on Wednesday!

This is our layout for January! It features a new XL die and framelit hearts for the Big Shot. Both of these products are in the new mini catalog! I also love this paper! It is one of the sale-a-bration rewards! WooWoo! Please bring your own adhesive (I will have glu sticks) and thats pretty much it! There will be a lot of die cutting going on, so if you have a big shot to bring to quicken up the process, that would be great. See you all on the 19th!

January Technique Geek Card Club

This month we will be learning a technique called the Magic Snowflake using reinkers and rubbing alcohol. This card also features some of the new products in the mini-catalog. I love this new stamp set with the embossing powder that is scented. I used the cherry stamp and the cherry scented embossing powder! Love it!

This is what your technique card will look like. Because it is called magic snowflake I wanted you to see what it looks like with a snowflake and how you can use this technique for many different things. If you have a bottle of rubbing alcohol please bring it. Also bring your own adhesive and small paper cutter if you have one. Then you don't have to wait in line to use mine!
