One class time 9:00 am until 1:00 pm

Prizes and special gift for bringing a new friend to me.

This month I’ve created 4 projects for you to work on.

This class is all about Sponging!
Sentiments provided can be used for all different occasions.

I’m excited to share  the 4 cards here  with you.

RSVP ASAP, but no later than August 25th! Seating is limited.
Send me an email to RSVP.

Here are a few samples of cards that use a few new sponging techniques. Why not add  warmth and dimension to your image with a sponge and ink? In addition, sponging is a great way to distress and/ or age your card stock.

Sponging can also make the card stock color richer. Different sponges create a different effect. Try as many as you like. My favorite are the sponges made by Stampin! UP!

 

 

 

Dragging your ink pad across your page enhances the sponging technique as we.. Also it is often good to use white craft ink to add lines and squiggles to a design as seen here.

 

Don’t be afraid to try all kinds of techniques your sponges can create. Add thinits and solid die cuts to make a statement.

What is Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly paper crafting subscription that’s shipped right to your door. $19.95 covers it all.  Shipping is included in that price! (Local sales tax will apply).

Every month the kit is a surprise. Some months there are cards, other months include a 3D project. There’s so few surprises left in the world these days so Paper Pumpkin keeps things fun and exciting!

The best part about each kit is that they contain all the pre-cut supplies, ink and stamps you’ll need to create that month’s project. Since the kits include a new stamp set and ink each month, it’s a great way to build up your supplies! The kit includes step by step color pictures that are simple to follow – even a child can do it!

Subscriptions can be suspended at any time without penalty. You can choose to subscribe for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.

Paper Pumpkin is perfect for:

a gift
a college student
a busy adult
children
retired or seniors
those that love to build up their paper crafting supplies on a budget

Mini Cup Valentines Filled With Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans!

I just love the little mini coffee cups and lids. It is so easy to turn them into the cutest favor, mini  thank you, happy day, thoughtful appreciation gifts!

Teacher gifts for valentine's Day

My three  grandchildren will be giving their teachers these chocolate covered coffee beans in these adorable little cups. Change the papers to shades of green for March and you can fill with Lucky Charms and give to your favorite Leprechaun! Top of the Morn!

 

Whoever said it wasn’t easy to be green never attended a Chicks and Chocolate Class. March will prove that using shades of green in your designs isn’t as difficult as one would imagine.

Shades of green and the Serene Scenery paper stack is one area that can help a designer dis-spell this  myth.

Take the shades of green bokeh paper in the stack.  Add some Dragon fly Dreams and you are good to go!

 

Or use the Same Dagon Fly Dreams Thinits to enhance the brick embossing folder using Shimmer White card stock Paper. Add some vellum wings and oh what a statement!

 

 

 

 

Don’t be shy, Celebrate! Have the confidence to stamp and then paper piece the Beautiful You on already done patterned paper from the Serene Scenery Paper Stack!

 

 

Last of all , using your white embossing powder to say Thank You is a great addition to the subtleties from the same stack.Hope to see you at the next class. Live away and can not make it, How about an online class for $15. This includes a kit and instructions for all 4 class cards. Just email me gigidesigns007@yahoo.com!

I am so excited to share the Falling in Love Suite,  a marriage of romance and shabby chic as the Designer series Paper features bokeh patterns- a blurred look created by out of focus, clustered shapes. The embellishments are just the right finishing touches to add to your beautiful cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Beautiful,how about the new Beautiful You Stampset 143637? This set allows you to be very creative using our new watercolor pencils and imagination to create stunning works of art.

 

Using the So Deatiled thinlits, 142751 and the Falling In Love Designer Series Papers, 142788, Shows the beautiful possibilities in our February class cards. The Beautiful You Stamp set helps to create a vintage look for any occasion. Using Pearls, lace and the newest thinlits and doilies will truly enhance the designs you will create in class.

In two more designs I will showcase the foil paper, stitched framelits as well as the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to bring a whimsical look to a very pretty design that can be given to either gender.

 

 

 

The silver foil and background Designer Series Paper gives a very dreamy feeling to a simple card. I love  how the silver foil makes the card pop!

 

 

Lastly another pretty design will come from the Annual Catalog’s Floral Phrases Bundle 142355

People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they aren’t “luckier”. They simply recognize and see more beauty in their lives. People who count their blessings are generally happier and healthier than people who don’t. If you ever feel as if anything in your life isn’t “enough”, try practicing an attitude of thankfulness. You might realize how good you have it, after all.

When I make a card, I realize the beauty I have when feeling my papers and ink between my fingers, the sound of the blades precisely cutting my papers, all my senses are working in tandem. My mind continues to work. I will continue to inspire, create and share with you.

sneak-peek-novemberHere are the cards for November. They are colorful. Using some un-traditional colors, some new and old stamp sets, embossing powders, new papers and as well as ribbons and threads.

Also in use will be beautiful acetate papers.

Not enough to peek your fancy, come for Part 2 on December 3. You can actually sign up for both classes at the same time.sneak-peek-decemberSpotlight on Stamps Sets!
