Some Fun Cards for February 13 & 14

 Since last week's cards were Sympathy and Get Well, I wanted to lighten the mood with some funny cards.
The First card says, "A little birdie told me it was your birthday." Inside the card, you see the cat, above. I love that one. The orange card says, "did someone turn the heat up in here...", inside says, "or is it just the candles on your cake? happy birthday! The granny in the car card reads, "Happy Birthday, you know you're old when...(inside) getting lucky means you found your car in the parking lot. The last card reads, "I don't have a problem with CAFFEINE, I have a problem without it. Inside is blank.

Class will be held on Thursday evening at 6PM and Friday Morning at 10AM.
Cost of the class is $10.00.
You will need a basic class tool kit with bone folder, adhesive, glue dots, dimensionals/pop dots, scissors.

January's Sewing Project

Sewing Project Class

Jan 18
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM  (Eastern )
This month we will be making a "Tooth" pillow. This is a great gift for children to put their tooth in for the Tooth Fairy to come and take, then leave a little goodie.
The tooth is made of felted wool and is approx. 12"x12". There are several different characters to choose from, depending on if the gift is for a boy or girl.
ALL supplies are included in the price of $20.00.
I have plenty of machines and tools for everyone.
You are welcome to bring a bag lunch, if you like.
I will have lite refreshments.

Happy New Year!

With each new year, we tend to feel a sense of "new beginning" or a chance to "start anew". At least I do.

With this new year, I would like to introduce some new classes at The Studio. I have listened to my friends and customers ask for something different and I want to start a new beginning of classes that will excite you and, hopefully, keep you coming back for more.

Please, feel free to let me know if you have any new ideas or if you have questions or comments about what I am trying. It is all about YOU anyway, right?!

Here's the line-up!
Hostess Club
I will continue to have e Hostess Club Meeting, on the first Wednesday of each month, at 10AM and 6PM.
If you are not in the Hostess club but would like more information on what it's all about or if you would like to come and be a guest, let me know! We are always welcome to new members and guests!

Card Classes
I will continue to have weekly card classes Thursday evenings at 6PM and Friday mornings at 10AM.
The third week of each month, the cards will be seasonal. For instance, with Valentines Day being next month, we will be making cards with a LOVE theme. On other months, when there is no need for seasonal cards, we will be making Christmas Cards! Talk about being prepared for the Holidays ahead of time. LOL! I love this idea and I hope you do too.
Other weekly card classes will be Birthday, Get Well, Sympathy, Thank You, etc.
The cost of Weekly Card Classes is $10.00 for 4 cards and envelopes, unless otherwise stated.
You must RSVP by Wednesday noon, if you would like to come to the card class or have a kit.

Sewing Projects
I am trying something new on the third Saturday of the month, I will have a sewing project class. These will be projects that we can finish in one class or finished to the point that details can be added at home. The projects will vary in theme but will all be fairly easy to intermediate. So, even if you don't sew, you can do it. I will have enough sewing machines here so you do not need to bring a machine. All supplies will be included, unless otherwise stated.
The cost of the Sewing Projects Class will vary but will not exceed $25.00.

Crop Time
On the fourth Friday of each month, from 5:PM till 11:00PM, I will have "Crop Time" at The Studio. This is an open crop with limited space. You are welcome to work on whatever you like. You are able to use my stamps, punches, dies, Big Shot, etc. I will always try to have extra consumables on hand for you to purchase like paper, glue, adhesives, ribbon, embellishments, etc.
I will also have on hand refreshments and snacks, at no extra cost.
The cost of "Crop Time is $10.00.

Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit

I love this kit! It has everything you need to make 20 cards of different sizes and for different occasions.
Stampin' Up! is promoting it as a kit for those who have not yet really experienced Stampin' Up!'s products. However, I think it's a great kit for anyone who enjoys making cards. I have seen several videos that other demonstrators have made to show off this product and I am quite impressed!

This Week's Card Class

What a wet week we are having here in North Port. Too wet for me!
Since it's so wet out here, I thought we would try something new. Instead of having the class out here at the studio, I am going to try having the class at the Panera Bread on Tamiami Trail. It is in the same plaza as the Hobby Lobby.

The classes will be at the same times as usual, Thursday at 6PM and Friday at 10AM. You will need your basic class kit. Class is $10.00.

Use the Buy Now button to register for class or to purchase a kit. Payment needs to be received by Wednesday evening in order to ensure a spot in the class or a kit.

Win our NEW Envelope Board – FREE!

I’m SO Excited about our HOT, NEW product coming out on September 1st — an Envelope Board!!b1_EnvelopePunch_demo_aug1513_NA

And I’m giving them away for FREE!!!

All you have to do is shop my online store here and apply Workshop Code  SHHNM7FE  in your shopping cart.
This special is only available to ONLINE ORDERS and cannot be combined with any other discounts or special prices.
For EVERY $35 you spend you will be entered to win, and I will draw a winner for every 5 qualifying orders!
Spend $35, get a 1 in 5 chance of winning.
Spend $70, get a 2 in 5 chance of winning.
The more people that order with the code, the MORE envelope boards that will be given away – so spread the word!
I have no limit to the # that will be given away — 1 board for every 5 $35 increments!

And EVERYONE who orders will receive a card & envelope made with this new Envelope Board in the mail from me. So even if you don’t win a board, you WILL get a little happy in the mail! The card and envelope set will be inside another envelope so that you can re-use them : )

Why does this Envelope Board Rock?
  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It’s super easy to use; it looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you’ll go crazy (in a good way).
  • It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it with you wherever you create. It’s super portable and easy to store – small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year’s annual catalog, so it’s here to stay.

You have until August 31st to place your qualifying order. On September 1st, when the envelope board becomes available for purchase, I will do the drawings, announce the winners, order the boards for the winners and get the card & envelope sample out to everyone who ordered!!!

In order to qualify for this promotion, you must shop my online store here AND apply Workshop Code SHHNM7FE in your shopping cart. If you don’t enter the Workshop Code, I’m unable to apply it after the order has been placed and unable to give you credit. If you have any questions on how to enter the Workshop Code, please e-mail me.

OMGoodness! Must Have!!

Look at these awesome new dies. They are awesome!!

They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.
There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.
These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)
With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!

Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):
Pairs great with:
 Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)

Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):
Pairs great with:
 Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W) and Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)

Both card dies pair well with:
  Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)

Stampin' Up! is so "with it"!

I really have to say that I LOVE Stampin' Up! I have worked for the company for close to 12 years now and they are constantly trying new things and always eager to stay on the cutting edge of the stamping and paper crafting world as well as staying on top of the new technology available.

I just found out that there is a video imbedded in the cover of the new 2013-2014 Idea Book/Catalog. "Say what?", you say. Oh yeah. Right there, in front of our eyes. However, in order to see it, you need a smart phone or tablet. You will need to download the FREE app called Layar. Once you go that, you can scan the cover of the catalog and see a video.

Go check it out and tell me what you think. Better yet, tell Stampin' Up! what you think. They love feedback from all of you. They are always listening to out ideas and yes, complaints. Then the try to improve.
