It's A Baby Card!

I made this card, using the Mojo Monday sketch, for a lady in my MOPS group who is having a baby in about two weeks. She's having a boy so instantly I knew that I wanted to use the blue and green pattern papers from Twitterpated. I just love that color combination of Sweet Leaf and Crystal Blue! I used the giraffe from It's A Zoo, the sentiment from Childhood, and the sweet boy from Sweet Baby. After I finished the card, it just felt a little too clean so I took the edge distresser and roughed up all the edges. I LOVE how it turned out.

Christmas Card Workshops

Christmas is coming up fast so now if a great time to get your Christmas cards finished before the business of the season really sets in. This year I will be offering two different card sessions. One session will be on Friday, November 13th from 6:30-9:00pm and the other will be on Saturday, November 21st from 3:00-5:30pm.

Here are the details: You can chose to make 10 cards for $15 or 20 cards for $30. You can chose to either do the 10 Evensong cards (more traditional colors) or the 10 Jingle cards or both. We will be doing both sets of cards at both sessions so your card choice does not dictate with class you must attend. Space is going to be limited so please rsvp as soon as possible!

October Card Workshop

This coming Wednesday is my monthly card workshop. Since the leaves have started falling, I was inspired to do some very fall-ish cards and it just so happens that the Grace level 2 pack lends itself perfectly to fall cards. We will be making 5 cards for $10 and I will be teaching some new fun techniques such as making realistic looking leaves and the stamp and repeat technique.

Here are 3 of the 5 cards that we will be making. The other two will be posted tomorrow.

Workshop Cards

I have had several requests to see the cards that we made at our last card class. I usually have them posted before the class, however, the last month has really gotten away from me. Nonetheless, here they are. We actually made 6 cards and I immediately sent one off the my mother-in-law for her birthday so that one, which was also my favorite, it missing but I'll be making another one and posting it soon.

We used the Twitterpated Level 2 pack, the hedgehog stamp set that comes exclusively in the workshop-on-the-go kits, the Many Thanks stamp set, and the Birthday stamp set.

Animal Cookies Layouts

In July I put Noah in our county fair's baby contest. I had always wanted to enter my child into it because it seemed like it would be so much fun. So, when I found out that I would be moving back home in time to enter, I just had to do it!

As we were waiting for the late judges to arrive, a grandma behind me was saying that there were just so many cute babies and she didn't know how they were going to pick the winners. She looked at her daughter and said, "It's a good thing this is all just for fun!" I thought to myself, "Of course I'm doing this for the fun of it, but it won't be fun unless we win!" It's a good thing Noah took the Happiest Baby award or else my pages may have turned out differently!
