Cupcake Extravaganza!

Even if you never send Christmas cards or valentines, I'm sure you send Birthday cards. Wouldn't you like a stash of several cards you can take out at the last minute? Or a punch which would allow you to create a birthday card any time you needed one?

Come to my Cupcake Extravaganza Class and I'll show you how to make three fast and easy cards. We'll all make and take home the fancy versions, but I'll also show you how to make versions which require only a few supplies.

The class fee of $20 includes the cupcake punch. Have fun using it on greeting cards, scrapbook pages, bookmarks, gift boxes, and more. Never be caught without a birthday card again!

Valentine Ideas

Color Combination: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and Rich Razzelberry. To make the colors really pop out, place them on a black background.
Technique: Embedded Embossing - punch shapes out of card stock and attach them using SNAIL adhesive. Then run the project through the Big Shot using an embossing folder to make the shapes appear embedded in the background. If you don't own a Big Shot yet, book a workshop with me to try it for yourself!
Project: Bookmarks make great crafts, because everybody wants one! Simply cut a strip of card stock 8-1/2" long by 1-1/2" wide and fold it in half. Decorate the front side any way you like. Attach small sheet magnets on the inside to hold the front and back together, and you'll have a bookmark which will never fall out of your book again!

Host a Workshop for Hands-On Crafting

Would you like to try some of these projects for yourself, but you don't own all the tools or you're not sure about the techniques? Book a workshop and invite all your friends and I'll show you! I'll provide the project, the supplies, and the great time; you provide the food and the great company.

Sale-A-Bration is the best time of the year to host a workshop! With extra hostess benefits for qualifying workshops and free gifts for everyone who buys $50 or more, who can resist? This month you will get to try out the Big Shot, embossing folders, and the Embedded Embossing technique. We can make either bookmarks or greeting cards, your choice. You also get to pick your theme: Valentine's Day, Spring, or another theme of your choice. I know I have some supplies which are calling your name! Let's have some fun.

Simply Adorned Bracelet Club

The Simply Adorned Bracelet Club will start up again, meeting monthly for as long as there is interest. Order just one or two bracelet charms each month, or order the entire bracelet at once. Join us as often as you want to create inserts for your charms. If you purchase a bracelet chain and all four charms, I will throw in a set of key trinkets for free!

This month we will be heat embossing to add a little texture and sparkle. Bring on the Spring with birds, bees, butterflies, and flowers! Please RSVP early to order your charms in time for the class. See the calendar for club dates.
