A New Video

Hello Everyone.
I've just published a new video in which I show how to make a 5 x 5 card with a matching envelope using the Envelope Punch Board. It's a little long so as to show you all the steps involved. So grab a cup of something and watch A Pot of Pretty Posies.
 I hope you enjoy it.

Holiday Catalogue

When the 2014 Holiday Catalogue is released at the end of August, it starts a wonderful time of year for paper crafters and gift givers. I've seen a preview and there are stamp sets and papers for Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas. I will have lots of classes using many of the items from this catalogue as well as items carried over from last year which you can find in my store under Shop by Solution > Winter Holidays.

I can arrange to have this catalogue delivered to you in the mail by Stampin' Up but I require your mailing address prior to July 31 in order to add it to the database. Send me an email if interested.

And just to get you in the spirit for a moment, here are the cards made last Sunday:

But please, do enjoy the rest of this fabulous summer.

Christmas in July

I cannot have this month pass by without something Christmassy in it so I'm hosting a Stamp-a-Stack class on Sunday, July 27, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Check out the details here and be sure to register up to two days in advance.

The designs will incorporate the Christmas stamp sets from last year that I know will be carried over in this year's Holiday catalogue available sometime in August. In the meantime a new stamp set called Christmas Bliss has been released. It's a new photopolymer stamp set (the see-through ones). Photopolymer stamps are fabulous to stamp with because you can see exactly where to position them. I will probably order this for the class so you get to see how they work and then order it for yourself.

If you come wearing red and green, you will get a little gift from me. I hope to see you then.

Buy 3, Get 1 Free

Happy Canada Day everyone -
A July special has just been announced. Buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper and get 1 pack free.
The papers are beautiful and can be used for gift packaging, envelopes, card boxes and more - that more being cards of course. I'm not sure how long this sale will last so if you need paper, check them out here.
With ten bucks in your pocket and a willingness to learn how to heat emboss on vellum and then colour the images come to tomorrow night's class from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. You will create two cards using these techniques and they are not difficult. Please register online, or email to secure your spot .

Here is one of the cards but I'll leave the other coloured one as a surprise.

Also check out the weekly deals. If you want to add or start your punch collection, there are a couple on sale.
