My Class info AND a MFTeaser

Aug 3, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Home decor/3-D items

I have gotten many emails asking about WHEN I am holding my classes and WHAT I will be doing. People asked for another block of classes, so those who travel out, so that is what I am doing.

I am hosting some PEEKS of what is in store for you here! Hope you like them!

My boxes are really aweome and each is unique, and exclusive. I am already working on next month’s ideas! I will keep you posted with Kit news after the classes have been held. Out of the Box will be a kit, and possibly Crazy for Daisy.

My trio of classes will be held at The Paper Tree on August 16th!!

Out of the Box!  (Class Kit available as well) with Lauren Meader  10am

 (and this paper is reversible so you can make it look totally different! sample in class.)

In this class you will get to learn the how to, of a super adorable “out of the box” gift/card holder that I designed exclusively for The Paper Tree.

This is a fabulous template you won’t want to miss out on! Just in time for the holiday’s, its so pretty & easy you will make it over and over again! The way this unfolds is super adorable, and it can hold a nice arrangement of items.

You will also create 8 monogram notecards/ envelope’s to match!

NOTE-This class uses Le Jardin from Lizzie Anne Designs, and the Just Rite monogram stamper. If you have one, save some time and bring it along!!

Its’ all about the accesories!

OH YEAH! New release time! On Wed. August 6th, Pink Cat Studio will release 2 new sets -Limitless Limbs (I picked the name!!) and Accessories for Billy & Lily.

 I think Billy & Lily have to be the cutest kids ever. REALLY-look at them!! That is what drew me into Pink Cat Studio. Then I found more I loved. I just like her style. What else I really like is that Melissa has expanded their versatility by adding a “accessories” line! YEAH! can you believe it? MORE fabulous outfits! I feel like I am 7 again! Playing dress up with paper dolls, only I get to call it “WORK”, but I’m having a BLAST!!

I decided for my first peek to share the versatility of the dress up accessories, by doing Billy & Lily on a card together!

(NOTE: Every-time Amber see this she really says its her as a cartoon! LOL! I mainly make Lily blond because of it)

dancin-in-the-rain.jpg Hello Sunshine

See-aren’t they so cute?! They are waving HI! (for Hello Sunshine) Oh and that dog-LOVE IT!!! SO in this they are in their galoshes, raincoats, and I used the baseball hats as rain hats.

 They are standing in a puddle (made with my A Muse clear oval set-a MUST have for any stamper!!). You cannot see by the photo (bummer) that there are clear raindrops pouring down on their cute lil faces. OK you can if you look REALLY hard! I just stamped their accessories, colored and cut. Too cute for words.

Next up is the very first idea I had when I asked Melissa about this set. I thought a Chef would be UBER cute-and Melissa thought so too. By the blog responses this one will be well loved.

whats-cookin.jpg What’s Cookin?

What do you think? Chef Billy.

 I love him. I asked myself-“What is he cooking?” then I remembered I had and the Happy Birthday circle from the Farm Set, and the little cupcake in his hand is from the new Limitless Limbs set (so a tiny peek). So he is cookin up birthday wishes!

I wanted to add to the look or the whole recipe thing, so I used Homemade By from Unity. That is the recipe cards and the cookies/candy sentiment. To me, red gingham and black are so chef colors! LOL!

This could make the most adorable restaurant gift card holder too. Nothing is better than dinner OUT!!

So that is it for the peeks today! Make sure you check theBLOG  (for contest info!! as well as guest designer challenge) and design team blogs for more peeks!

Tomorrow I will have more eye candy with the peeks 😀

Also MFT peeks start 😀 I don’t know that I have anything I can share yet, since I am using my peeks for my “Not so tricky treats” class. We shall see.’

Till tomorrow.
