One Sheet Wonder Class, Quilting Cards, and a Little Bit of Excitement...

Crafters -

On Saturday, I met with some friends and fellow crafters for my One Sheet Wonder Class. We had a LOT of fun! We made six cards, and I LOVED every one of the designs. 

So I had wanted to make some type of quilting card last month. I googled "quilting card" and the ideas were WOW! But the one that spoke to me the most was a card from Karen Barber. You can see her card and posting HERE. She even gave a really GREAT tip to line the pieces and parts with the Stampin' Up! Grid Paper.

One of the six cards was this quilting card.


With my retirement, I took a Quilting 101 class about a month ago. HAD. A. BLAST! So, with that 1 little square, I made 11 more and am now in the process of trying to make it into a twin size quilt! With a little help from my Aunt Linda, she was able to get me on the right path. And my friend Monica has also offered her assistance to me. Between me and my family/friends, I may actually be able to get this quilt done!

This quilting card was a HUGE …

Cards from Team Meeting

Crafters -

Two weeks ago, I was able to meet with my Team. We were originally scheduled in January. However, all classes and meetings were cancelled. So this was the first time we were able to meet.

As luck would have it, my mom was in Ohio for Easter. We really enjoyed her visit! And since she was formerly a demonstrator, she was also able to attend our Team Meeting. Even had her design a card!

So, because I already had the meeting planned for January, during Sale-a-Bration, we went ahead and just used those card supplies. Unfortunately, since it was now AFTER Sale-a-Bration... well, we went ahead and used those designs anyway!

Check out the fun cards we made! 


We made four cards using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and the Butterfly Thinlits Dies. SO glad those are available again! They are so beautiful in person! 




And check this out! I only had enough of the pink for four cards, and there were six of us. And I always make a couple of extras, so all of a sudden, I was four pink butterflie…

Sneak Peek - One Sheet Wonder Card Class

Crafters -

Gotta tell you - I am REALLY enjoying this retirement thing! I used to work the night shift and sleep during the daytime. I have been able to attend the boy's school sporting events AND I've been able to work around the house during the daytime and sleep at nighttime. Who knew?!  :)

Seriously, I have been cutting some of my soon-to-be retired Designer Series Papers for Saturday's One Sheet Wonders class. And having the time of my life doing this too! And it has been so much fun! Especially since each set of six cards uses different colors. I've been using some of my soon-to-be retired InColors too!

So, without further ado... here's a little sneak peek at just one of the cards we will be making on Saturday.


This card uses Park Lane Designer Series Papers, along with the Love Is Kindness stamp set, a small piece of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies, and do you recognize the bow and "for you" diecuts? That's right! Those are BOTH from the Mini Treat Bag …

April and May Classes - Stampin' Up!

Well, it has been a while since I posted. Thank you all so much for your kind words, the beautiful cards both my mom and I received, and all your prayers. All were much appreciated!

Ok, onto the business portion, now!  :)

I had my team meeting last weekend while my mom was here. Mom used to be a demo, so it was really nice crafting with her and seeing her visit with friends. Mom even designed a card for our meeting! I'll be posting photos of the cards next week.

BUT, now that I have cleaned my craft room (somewhat!) and have looked at our calendar. I have scheduled two card classes for April and May. Before I tell you what those are about, here are a few quick announcements:
