February Fun!

Well it's that time again. The first Wednesday of the month is tomorrow! So happy I'm ready for the February class already. I have been busy making kits and sometimes I just get carried away! I have so many kits made up I don't know if I should Choose the 4 cards they make or let them grab a bucket. ... ????
The only problem with not choosing at least THREE of them, is I might get stuck with a lot of Valentine kits..... ya know?
Anyway... let me share what I have prepared and then I'll wait for your input. Okay? (Nancy?).
This first one I chose for a friend of mine who likes to send "TEA" theme cards to her Great Aunt.  Below is a close up of the little velum envelope which is stamped with the SU "Sealed with Love" set as well as the sentiments on top.  This card also uses two strips of the SU "Sending Love" Valentine DSP pack, which is layered under the SU "Falling Petals" embossed piece. Not sure why they named it petals.. because it's clearly HEARTS! But I love this folder.

Next up is random card I made for my beau! This is not part of the class but I like how it turned out.
Here's a peek inside, again using the same stamp set.
Here is a close up of the edge die in the from the "Love Notes" bundle.
Love this die.
I also have a super cute card kit using the SAB "Hey Chick" set.... however
I forgot to take a photo of it!
Executive Decision Time.......
I believe I should stick with a Valentine theme for at least 3 .... so this would be the first card in this post along the 2 others from the last post.  They can do one other non Valentine  which will be the "Hey Chick" card ... and that will be my February class.
Below is the table favors using more of the DSP from the 6 x 6 pack.
Each is a little different.
I used up some old Hugs & Kisses ribbon to close.


Each little treat holds 2 Hershey Nuggets.



So there you have it!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

My Funny Valentine

💝💚💚💘💘💘💘💘💘💘💘Hi there .... It's almost time to be sending out those heart throb cards and notes to our Valentines! 
 I really am hoping to make about 50 small treats for work; something simple like a tag,
 but in the meantime I had to have a few kit ideas ready for the February class.
So with that said.... here is just a few. 
This is a sample of the "funny" version.
The cards are identical except for the veggies.
Did you notice I added a toothpick on this Olive?

There are several Vegetables the girls can choose from in this set.

Below is another more traditional Valentine with two different inside sentiments.

The die-cut cover frame plate does all the work on this one.
I added a strip of DSP under the sentiment on the W.W. CS piece. 
Then I finished off with a baker's twine bow glued to the lower front center
of the sentiment strip. 
 I also glued on a few of the heart inserts from the die cut frame.

Hugs
Diane

Happy New Year! January Class

Well Happy New Year to everyone who may read this! (Hi Nancy!)....
Here is a quick look at the cards the girls will make for the January class Wednesday night, plus the table favors for class participants.  I chose Valentine's for my favor theme.
This first card is one of my favorites.
One card is done in bright colors and the second a tone on tone.
The girls can pick which ever they like best, plus I have TONS of DSP to choose from.
The second is the same as far as choices. On has vertical stripes and one has diagonal stripes.
They can also make which ever sentiment they want.
The third can be used for many occasion depending on the sentiment stamp used.
Also the die cuts can be many different colors... I like the swish added to show movement.
The fourth card can be a Wedding, Anniversary easily if the baby swan is left off. With the baby it makes a great Baby Shower card.  Again you can make the swans, light pink, beige, or plain white. All look fabulous in my opinion.
Last is two of the 8 different Valentine favors.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think.
Diane

December Fun!!!

Quick post to show some of the treat TAGS I've been making for class and also for some small exchange gift of a few Christmas Dinner Get-to-Gethers that are coming up.
The first is from PTI dies and stamp set... Santa and Snowman treat holders. These also work great on jar of Pepper Jelly, etc. or a small 2" diameter candle.



Here is the snowman holding some Trail Mix.

I also made 8 holding little treat bags I made with DSP and another tags. These will be for class on Wednesday and if you want to peek... I posted them on Pinterest.

Here are some other tags I made for my Torch Lake Girls group dinner treat.
Here is close up of a couple.
Now lastly... a few cards the girls will make in class.
I made several versions of this one. Some may not want to use for Christmas. I also have a few January birthdays coming up.

Guess who this is going to???
I'm waiting for our first real SNOW! ....Nancy!

Sorry just one more... An Oldie but a Goodie and easy to make.
Here is the inside.

Well thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas!
Hugs

November Class Cards

A quick post to show 3 of the 4 cards the girls will be making tonight. The 4th card they choose from left over kits of previous classes. I have so many kits I'm getting buried in them, so I decided to use them as the 4th card until I thin out the piles.

This first card of the gift stack is variation of a card the girls made in a previous month using the same stamp set. I really like this set because it can be Christmas, Birthday, Graduation, Shower or whatever other occasion you give a gift! The colors help to determine the "mood" of the card too.  

 
This next one is just a warm and cozy feeling.... especially here in Michigan at this time year.
 It too can be used for many occasions and made in many different colors.
The 3rd card is a way for me use up some old DSP as background paper. I really love the double stacked ornament die. Again there are so many variations you can do with color,  DSP and Cardstock.
All you need is imagination!

I hope they like these 3... and as I said, they can pick their 4th.
So who ever gets done first will have first pick!
