Weekly Deals, New Holiday Flyer, and Classes

Hello everyone,
The deals for this week include two embossing folders and a very cute stamp set for creating cards for the little ones in your life (children or grandchildren). Take a look.

Holiday Supplement

Browse through this new Holiday supplement online here.
Check out the Many More Stars Simply Created Kit on p. 9. This kit allows you to create 26 stars perfect for holiday uses from dressing your tabletop, decorating your mantle and hanging on the tree. You could also include one on your holiday packaging. And here's an interesting idea - a great way to spend time with your friends - invite them to each purchase a kit, it's $31.95, and get together so you can make the stars together.

I will be putting in a group order on Monday evening, November 3 so if you'd like anything, let me know.

Upcoming Classes

Check out my Events for a number of holiday related classes - from card making, to box making, to luminaries - I'm sure you will find something that will spark your interest. The box making classes have a specific deadline to register date so I can order the tool for you.

That's it for now. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Bags and Tags Class for Sunday

Hello everyone,
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. I wanted to show you a little treat box I made for my Thanksgiving table. I put a few little treats inside. I made one per place setting.

I used the Gift Box Punch Board to make the box and decorated it using the Fall Fest stamp set. It was a big hit. The Gift Box Punch Board can be found in the Holiday Catalogue, page 5, item #135863 for $24.95. To see it in action here is a video.

And now for the class. Here are the various items you will be making
You will be making some gift tags including one for a wine gift, decorate the Petite Cafe Bags available through the Holiday Catalogue, page 10, item #135826, 10 for $7.50. You will also learn how easy it is to make a gift bag with handles. Very cute. Here are the pixs and here is where to register.

Gift Packaging Class

Take your gift-giving to a new height by creating your own gift packaging. This class will introduce you to tag and bag making. With a few punches and patterned paper, you will create a some gift tags including a wine bottle tag.

For the bags, you will decorate a food safe coffee-style bag for, you guessed it, some freshly roasted coffee beans or any other type of treat. I will also show you how to make a bag reminiscent of the brown-paper lunch bag and a shopping bag.

Oh and sure, $ store gift bags are great but see how easy it is to create your own and embellish it with a little extra love. Your recipient is sure to take a moment to admire the packaging before plunging inside.

This class is scheduled for Sunday, October 19 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
The cost is $25.00. Please register here.

Blendabilities and Ink Pads

Thanks to Diane Dimich (a U.S. demonstrator) for providing this list of ink pads that will also work for stamping your images and then use the Blendabilities to colour.

The recommended ink pad for stamping images that you intend to colour with Blendabilities is the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad but isn't it nice to know that you can use other ink colours. I haven't tried it yet - but I will be. The main thing to keep in mind is that you must be sure your stamped image has dried before colouring with the Blendabilities.

For those of you unfamiliar with Blendabilities, these are Stampin' Up's line of alcohol markers. They come in sets of three and take your colouring to a whole new level simply because they blend together so nicely. Take a look at them here
