Stampin' Up! Technique Card Class Sample

Hello Gals!

Today I am going to give you a peak at one of the recent technique cards created in my Technique Geek card classes.  This card was created with the Perfectly Preserve bundle and Orchard Harvest designer paper from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.  The card technique is a Suspension Card.  You layer two pieces of punched cardstock between a piece of string, or in this case jewelry line, then place the punched out layer with string inside a larger punch out on your card base. (note, you need an extra layer of cardstock to hide the string)  Here are some photos of the card...

As you can see from the samples, there are 2 different images on the center card layer, so when you flip the suspended image, you get another fun image on the other side.

If you would like to join in the technique classes, info is listed on the right side of my blog.  Next classes, the 1st week of September!

Thanks for stopping by, & have a great day!!!

Boooo Scrapbook Pages!

Good Monday Morning to you!

Last week-end was the monthly Scrapbooking class here, and the girls & I had a great time.  I enjoy stamping & sharing with all of you so much...
So, here are the pages we created,

This layout was CASED from a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator on the Stampin' Connection.  There was very little that I changed.  I used the Orchard Harvest designer paper from the Holiday Mini catalog, the new Gently Falling stamp set from the big catalog & the new Oval Accent Bigz Clear die cut.  Yes, I did use a retired alphabet die...the new typeset Alphabet is on my wish list :).

Here is the 2nd layout we did...Halloween!!!

I found this page layout on my favorite scrapbook sketch site, .  And, I just had to use those little Googly Ghouls.  They are just toooooo cute with the Googlie eyes!!!  On the left page, we ran the 4 x 11 strip of Basic Black cardstock through our Spider Web embossing folder, sponged it with Whisper White Craft ink, and then cut it in to to stretch it to the 12 x 12 page.  (One of my little secrets that I share with scrappers)  The right page has 3 x 3 squares alternating designer paper(last years Halloween available on the clearance rack) the piece of old olive is dry embossed with the Chevron embossing folder.  The squares of white will be swapped out with Halloween photos.  And, of course, Frankie in the center 3" circle, colored with an Old Olive marker.

If you enjoy scrapbooking, my Scrap the Years class is a great way to get those pictures off that SD card on into your scrapbook!!!

I have more pages to share (so behind in sharing) so I will be back soon to share some of our previous months pages.

Thanks for stopping by, & have a great week!

I'm back with a fun Digital Project!

Hello World!!!

I'm baaaack!   Well, I really haven't been gone, but have been absent from blogging much too long.  I have been extremely busy with technique classes, scrapbook classes, and creating.  I made tons of cards for convention (which my awsome downline Sarah was so generous to swap for me).  There is just so much I want to catch you up on in my Stampin' Up! world.

Today I am sharing a project I created with the Pinwheel Daily Calendar Template (Item# 128342 sale price $6.87).  Birthdays are big celebrations in my family, so I wanted to create a birthday book to help me remember all of them.  I printed the calendar template on 3 sheets of whisper white cardstock.  I trimmed the 12 monthly calendar templates (they are approx. 2 1/4 by 7" each).

Then I cut a 8 1/4 x  9 1/2 piece of designer paper from the Patio Party paper pack (item#126910).  I scored the paper at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2 vertically, and 7 1/2" horizontally.  I folded on score lines to make three 2 3/4" sections with a 2" pocked across the bottom.  4 of the months with be tucked in each section.

Then, to decorate the front...Hmmm, how about the Make a Cake stamp set, Page 44, clear #126742 $11.95 or wood mount #126740 $14.95.  Punched Midnight Muse cardstock with 2 3/8 scalloped circle punch, and image punched with 1 3/4 circle punch.  Added a 1" belly band with Primrose Petals cardstock, & added Summer Starfruit ribbon.

That was fun :)

Now I need to get to work, updating my calendar pages so I won't miss the next birthday!

Hope you enjoyed this project... I would love to hear from you, If there is something you would like to see her, leave me a comment!  Have a great week-end!!!
