3-4-5 Card Workshop Information

Crafters -

If you are a customer of mine, you should have received an email on Thursday. If you are not yet a customer, email me! I'd love to add you to my email list. Please know that you will have to add me as a contact - you can also sign up to "subscribe" or "follow" this blog. You'll receive the updates that are listed on the blog.

I have listed below that if you place a Sale-a-Bration (SAB) order that night (February 26th), the $5 card class will be deducted from your order total. FYI - a SAB order is one that qualifies for SAB benefits. So with a $50 merchandise order, you'll receive the FREE SAB item and get the 3-4-5 class FREE!

Without further ado, here is the information.

*************3-4-5 card workshop information *****************

On Friday, February 26th, from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm, I will be hosting a mini-card workshop at my home. Here are the details:
  • Three cards/$5.00 - ADHESIVE IS NOT INCLUDED - please bring your favorite adhesive with you
    • Easter Card
    • Feminine Card
    • OLC (one-layer-card) - meaning NO LAYERS! - easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
  • Please prepay by Friday, February 19th to ensure I have your cards cut and ready to go for YOU!
  • Your payment is your RSVP (cash or check only please)
  • Front door will be open at 3:00 pm. Remember, I have a "regular" job, so I'll be arriving home just before then...
  • You MUST arrive by 5:30 pm to make the cards (if you arrive at 5:31 pm, I'll love seeing you, but you'll be too late to make the cards)
  • If you place a Sale-a-bration (SAB) order that night, I'll deduct the $5 card class from your order total (Workshop orders do not apply. You are still responsible for shipping/handling and taxes. The $5 will be deducted from your FINAL total.) Orders can be paid by cash, check (payable to me), or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover are accepted by Stampin'Up!)
  • There will be drawings throughout the evening
  • There will be a few of my retired stamp sets/supplies available (retired items are cash only please)

Pink Glove Dance on YouTube

Many of you know how I feel about breast cancer (no, I will not capitalize it and make it more important!). I saw this video on a fellow crafter's blog and thought it was HILARIOUS!

You will just have to smile when you see it and yes, you will start "boppin' to the music."


A Child's Valentine - Take 2!

And here is the second Valentine from the boy's sketch (see previous post on January 23rd, 2010).

You probably cannot tell, but just under the "Love you much" and above the heart/eyes, there is a drawing of three people - the boy, Grandpa, and Grandma Donna. Grandma has curly hair.

This card DOES have one stamp used - the rest is a child's love and imagination...

Happy Valentine's Day!

My Valentine Cards

Don't you just LOVE Valentine's Day? I have been working on these cards for several WEEKS! Where does the time go anymore?

Both cards use Thoughts & Prayers (one of my FAVORITE sets) and Teeny Tiny Wishes. I used markers on both, some type of ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Trim Punch, Beautiful Wings embosslit, brads, paper piercer, Dazzling Diamonds, and glue pen.

The pink/purple ones use SU! Only. For those that know me, I'm NOT a pink person. I'll do pink for breast cancer, but that's about it! If you have placed an order recently, you'll be receiving one of these cards as a "Thanks for your Order"! This card uses Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss, and So Saffron markers. Also used the Welcome Neighbor DSP (free during Sale-a-Bration), and Eggplant Grosgrain ribbon. The larger saffron butterfly also uses the pretties brad and a couple of silver brads. I "curved" the wings to make it really "POP"!

The white/pink/chocolate card is non-SU! I have so many supplies, I'm working my way through a very small fraction of them. :) These are ones that I am using for co-workers, teachers and the like.

Hope you enjoy them!

My Demonstration Masterpieces! :)

Crafters -

My upline had a meeting last night. And I volunteered to demonstrate something. Well, following a wonderful sample on Patty Bennett's blog (, I demonstrated the Mini Milk Carton and Fancy Favor Box. If you notice, you will also see the new Sizzix embosslit on the So Saffron one. Doesn't it blend nicely with the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP?

The one on the left was my sample. It uses Regal Rose and Melon Mambo, along with the set Simply Said - a GREAT Valentine's set for adults and friends!
