Gift Cards and Last Call!

Hola, Chicas! I had a Gift Card holder class planned for Monday evening for a handful of ladies and most of them had to back out, for various reasons. I still have one friend that would really like to make them. However, I really don’t want to be cutting paper and ribbons, printing directions and cleaning for one participant. If I can get a few more people to sign up, I would reschedule and she would be so happy. The holders are shown below and the cost is $15.00. If you would like to join in, let me know ASAP and I will reschedule for Wednesday evening 6 to 9.

Also, last chance to order card kits for Dec. 1 pick up. The kits have all pieces cut and stamped with full color directions and envelopes. Cost is $15.00 for sets of 10. Cards that are available are shown below.

Mom and Me Class

I know, it’s been a VERY long time since I have had a Mom and Me Class. I think the last one was well over a year ago. Well, in my defense, I have had some major milestones happen in the last year or so. Like, a new Granddaughter and the fact that she and her Mother live with me and I am a full time Nanny.
OK, enough excuses. On to the details you want!
This is a really fun project for you and your child/children. I try to make the project just hard enough that it requires you to work together. That is what makes it special. This is a winter scene snow globe. This one is just a small sample of all of the goodies I have for inside this globe of glass. Each one will be different because there is no specific way to create. Kids go crazy about having free reign of a project. You can't tell by the photos but there is a battery operated tea-light in the house and it shines through the stars that are punched out.
Cost is $10.00 for each Mom and Me globe made and is on Sunday, Nov. 27th from 10 AM to 2 PM, (this project probably won’t take 4 hours but I just want to make sure I have lots of time set aside in case we get chatty or off track, wink). Please R.S.V.P. by Friday so I can make sure I have supplies for everyone.
*You can make additional globes for $8.00 each.
*Children must be accompanied by an adult but if you are an adult without a child and want to take this class, that’s fine.
*I recommend the child be no younger than 5 but you can make that call as long as your child is not overly disruptive.
*We will be working with hot glue so, please keep that in mind.

Happy Honeycomb Holidays!

Here’s another honeycomb card I made. The “lights” on the tree are glittery paper punched with a teardrop shaped punch so they can stick out of the tree and be seen.

More cards to come!

By the way, I have this honeycomb paper at the studio for sale. I got in on a great group buy and they are $5.50 each. Remember, H2U members get 10% off.

*If you buy the paper from me, I will die cut it for you in whatever shapes I have that you want.

More Honeycomb Cards

Sorry, I have been too busy to post lately. Since it has been a little while, I thought I might get back in the posting groove with a fun honeycomb card. I love this paper and I love trying new stuff with it.

This cute little guy is cut with a snowman die. I LOVE the stick arms! They are so cute.  I’m still trying to perfect the mouth piece.  For this guy, I cut a half circle smile and accordion folded it so it would fit in the honeycomb and open and close with him. I think he still needs work. His tie is great. It is made with SU seam binding. The seam binding is so light weight and easy to work with.

Hope he makes you smile! Have a great day! XOX, Mimi

A Tradition Continues

Every year, for the past five years, I have made a new Advent Calendar for my home. I also hold an Advent Calendar class for those who would like to share this tradition with me. My kids love them. I always stick little goodies and notes in all of the little pockets for them to open each day. My ten year old has already started asking me if I was making one this year and what will it be.
So, without further ado, here is a sample of the calendar class for this year.


I LOVE the new stocking die from Stampin’ Up! I have seen so many wonderful projects with it. The finished stocking measures approx. 7” x 5”. Plenty of room for hiding goodies inside.
I have scheduled a class on NOV 20 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM and the cost of the class is $20.00. We will be using lots of goodies to decorate the stocking pockets including the new mini jingle bells, some felt shapes, twine, ribbons, pearls, glitter, etc.
If you would like to make one of the calendars, you will need to R.S.V.P. no later than Nov. 9th as I have to order enough supplies from Stampin' Up! and have them here in time to pre-cut all of the stockings.

Everybody needs a little help sometimes

It’s not a bad thing to need a little help from your friends. Especially with the Holidays rapidly approaching us. So, I have created a few cards that I can put together in packs of 10, for you to assemble. You can still have homemade cards without the high price of someone else making them for you or the time consuming job of coming up with an idea, ordering and cutting all of the paper, stamping and sponging, etc.

I will cut all of the paper, do all of the stamping, embossing, sponging, etc for the price of $15.00 per multiples of 10. That’s $1.50 a card. Let me know if this service interests you! Her are the samples I have come up with.

Happy November 1st!

I can't believe I just said that! This year has flown by so fast, my head is spinning! Dare I say, Christmas is upon us!?

I have updated the Events page on my Stampin' Up! website with classes that I have in November. So, take a moment to check and see if there is anything that tickles your fancy and let me know if you can join me for some pre-holiday fun!

Keep checking back though, as I am working on another "Create with the Cricut" class and I am looking at the last week of November to hold it.

Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi
