More National Scrapbook Day info, as promised

Here's the nitty gritty on NSD, next Saturday, May 4th. "May the 4th Be With You" LOL!
I will have a few different projects you can make. You don't have to sign up for all of them. You can pick and choose what you want to do. Or, if you would rather just come and enjoy the celebration, that's fine too.
The Studio opens at 10AM and we will play on into the night. There will be snacks to enjoy and water. Feel free to bring something to share.

First up is the Family Album. This project starts at 11AM and should be done by 2PM.
I was able to take more pictures of the Family album that you can make. There really is a lot of room for photos and journaling in this small package, with 14 pages that measure 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". Here is a photo of some of the pages and goodies we will be using in the book. Lots of yummyness!

I also have this set of All Dressed Up cards and box. This would make a beautiful Mother's Day gift! Cost is $15.00 and  starts at 2 and should be done by 4.
Next up is this sweet spring wreath. Cost is $15.00 or $10.00 if you bring your own grapevine wreath.Starts at 5 and should be done by 7.

The last project is a pretty wall hanging using the All Dressed Up framelits. Think Paris and Pretty! Cost is $15.00 and starts at 7 and should be done by 8:30.
 If you would like to make any of these fun projects or you would just like to come hang out for the day, please RSVP by Wednesday.

National Scrapbook Day is Coming!

I told you a week or so ago to keep on the look-out for something fun that I am planning for NSD!
Well, I am finally ready to start revealing some goodies.

First up is a Family Mini Album using Teresa Collins paper collection "Family Matters".
This great little album gets tucked away in it's own little box to keep it safe for years to come.
All of the pages are chipboard that is covered with the TC paper and measure 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".
The 14 pages accordion fold and tie with a bow so they will fit perfectly in the box.
The finished book would make a wonderful gift or be stingy and keep it for yourself! LOL!
All materials are included in the cost of $25.00. You just need a basic class kit.

I will get more pictures posted tomorrow.

Next Week's Class Samples

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe that I am already set for next wee. I'm shocked myself. LOL!
I'm finally getting the hang of this weekly class schedule, thanks to all of the wonderful friends I have that help me!
These cards all showcase the stamp set Postage Due. Thankfully, this set is not on the retiring list. I ordered it shortly after its release and am just starting to use it.


Classes for next week are Wednesday morning at 10AM and Thursday evening at 6PM.
Cost is $10.00. A basic class kit is needed. If you would like to join us or would like to order a kit, please let me know no later than 10AM Tuesday morning.
Thanks for stopping by.

"Why you want to leave me?"

My daughter and I enjoy using that line from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". That was a fun movie. I'll have to break it out and watch it again.
Well, that's how I feel every time Stampin' Up! decides to retire colors and bring in new ones. My initial reaction is always sad, like I am losing an old friend. But, when I see the new colors, I see why they feel the need for change.
This week's class uses some of those old friends that are going away. For example, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Certainly Celery. I will miss them but I'm sure I will become fast friends with the new ones!
If you would like to come to the class, please RSVP by Tuesday morning as I make all of my kits on Tuesday.
Classes will be on Wednesday morning at 10AM and Wednesday evening at 6PM.
The evening class is usually on Thursdays, however, I have other plans for Thursday evening so I need to have class on Wednesday evening.
Cost is $10.00.
You will need a basic class kit with adhesive, glue dots, pop dots, scissors, etc...

This Week at the Studio

It's a miracle! I have this weeks class ready to go by Sunday. I know, I know. Hard to believe.
This week I wanted to highlight the set "by the Tide". I love this set that's in the Spring Mini catalog and wanted to use it before it goes away. Hopefully it will make it into the Big Catalog in June. *fingers crossed*
It's just one of those sets that, if you live in Florida, you should have.
It works great for cards for guys and gals and is very versatile for all occasions.
Here is a sneak peek at the 4 cards we will be making.

Classes will be Wednesday at 10 AM and Thursday at 6 PM.
Cost is $10.00
Basic tool kit needed (adhesive, glue dots, pop dots, bone folder, scissors, etc...)
Please RSVP by Tuesday 10 AM

Happy April!

Happy April! I hope you had a love filled Easter Holiday. 
Our home was filled with love and laughter of family and friends. 
My granddaughter enjoyed finding eggs and gifts and yes, candy. 
She was a joy to watch. When it was time for to leave, she was very upset. 
Poor dear. 
Ok, enough personal stuff about me. 
I wanted to let you know what's going on at the studio. 
This Wednesday evening is our last Hostess Club meeting. Wow! I can't 
believe it is almost over. 
We will start again in July with the release of the new SU Idea Book/Catalog.
Speaking of the new book, if you would like to receive on in the mail as soon 
as they are released, be sure to let me know. I need a current address and the 
cost is $5.00.

As always, I am working on a few classes for you and will post the details as 
soon as I have them finalized.

Also, May 4th is National Scrapbook Day! Check back for details on something I 
am cooking up.
Should be lots of fun!
