 November 2021

Class schedule

Preview Day is always a great deal of fun.  And, of course, last Saturday was no exception.  There were two great football games and OSU's game was during Preview Day so I am sure that had something to do with our being busy beyond imagination in the morning and slow, but steady, in the afternoon.  Anyhoo.... we still had a great Make 'n Take for everyone and while we had a few supplies left, we had none of the stamps or dies left!  Woo Hoo!

 As you can see this card was absolutely perfect!  The tree stamp is from Catherine Pooler's "Wrapped & Ready" stamp set, which also features a stamp of a car with packages on it.  "I can't wait" came from the "Near or Far" stamp set featuring great sentiments for Christmas.  We used a variety of Tombow brush pens to color and added gold "pearls" from PinkFresh.  The papers we used were from the Happy Christmas collection by Carta Bella.  We also used one of Catherine Pooler's Scallop dies from the Scallops and Dots" die set.  The tag die came from the Notecard Frame and Tag die set, also by Catherine Pooler. 

Thanksgiving is next month and we'll have special hours that week.  Please make a note of the schedule.... and yes, of course, I'll remind you when it gets closer.

Three unique cards make up this class of larger cards.  One is an easel card, one is a tent card and one is traditional.  These cards will be perfect for someone you want to send something a bit more special.  There is shimmer paper and glitter paper to add an extra special touch to each of them.  I can't imagine a more stunning set of cards.
