Teacher ideas

So here are some ideas for School Teachers, Bus Drivers, Piano Teachers.

These are card holders.

Post it note holders

Candy Holders
These were cased from Splitcoast Stampers. I think taller candy jars would look better but this is what I had handy.

If you are either of the above listed for our kids, well, just act surprised.

If you want details , just let me know. These did not take long at all and each took about 1 12x12 sheet of paper total.

Advent Calendar

So here is my version of the advent calendar. I noticed one in Maxine's house and thought it was a cool idea. No lie, it took a few hours to put together.

Christmas Card Stack

I had a lot of fun this year with the Christmas cards. I really liked the kit Stampin'Up! had. The kit is called Christmas Jingle. I think the colors are really contemporary and classic at the same time.
So I did a card class this week. It was my first official one as a demonstrator. I really have to thank Maxine for letting me use her house. She did such a great job decorating , now I am in the Christmas mood!
We made 20 cards and 2 treat bags from half the Christmas Jingle kit. The treat bags were cut out by my Stampin'Up! Big Shot with the scallop bag template. They are the perfect size for a gift card.

For some reason I ordered 1 extra kit for the card class , so if anyone is interested in purchasing it , you can call me.

We will be working at Maxine Harder's house on November 25 @ 7pm. There are only 9 spots and pre-payment will save your spot. I need to know by November 8 if you are coming.

Big Shot

Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Sizzix. And came out with the Big Shot. It is a die cutter and embosser. What is great is that all the dies and embossing folders coordinate with stamps in their catalogues.

Well...I just ordered one. I looked forward to learning all the uses for this little machine. I also look forward in demonstrating it and showing all of you how much fun it can be. I am quite excited about some of the other little projects you can make with it. Like pillow boxes and match stick boxes.

So if you are coming to the Redberry retreat I hope to have a little demonstration ready! I also will be demonstrating it in upcoming card classes and Workshops.

This was my first workshop card.

Paper : Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Whisper white
Ink : Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Stampin' Dimensional's and the tearing technique.

This card is quite simple and quick and could be used with a number of other sayings. There are also many other embellishments that could be added, and yes Maxine, ribbon could surely be added somewhere!

I have been pondering making a blog of this sort for a while. I have been making cards for about 7 years and recently became a Stampin'Up! demonstrator. I decided this was a good time to share some of my ideas with you or pass along some great ideas I have come across.

I have closed this blog because if pictures of any of yours or my loved ones get put up on Scrapbook layouts, I want you to feel safe in knowing that not everyone and their dog can see all their information. So I just ask you to respect that privacy on this blog. But please feel free to comment or encourage entries on this blog.

So I welcome you and hope you feel encouraged and inspired !
