St. Patty's Day 'Window Box' Treat for Classes this Week!

This sweet little box is what we'll be making in stamp classes this week! It is made with the Window Box Thinlits Dies. So I just made the basic box - without any 'windows'. The window choices are super fabulous, but for class I just wanted to make the basic box first!

But then I did add my own touches to cutsie up the basic box for a St. Patrick's Day treat! Of course, you can add so many things to it - but probably my favorite part is the new Lace Doilies! - Perfect size for this box and soo pretty!

Everything I added to the box was adhered to a belly band though - so it was easy to remove and open the box :)

Hope to see you at class this week,

Birthday Bonanza - with Creation Station!

This month's theme for Creation Station is "It's a Birthday Bonanza!" I hope you're enjoying the Hop so far, or if you're just starting the Hop - Welcome!

So this is a card I said I would NEVER do for card class - but I DID!! :) The card front might be a bit 'simply' deceiving... Even with a few fun pretties from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit ~

And the card inside is all the fabulousness -

For most it's been called the Pop and Twist technique. And when I first saw these cards, I said "NEVER" for a card class technique to teach to my friends!  Way to difficult, but then I found a tutorial from France Martin on You Tube (and I think she calls it a Pivot card) - and I was convinced! - WE CAN DO IT!! 

I'm not sure that she was the inventor of this super cool card, but I like listening to her accent and her tutorial was so easy to follow!!

And here's my super fun Pop Up card inside...

So, yep, a day to celebrate YOU!! Love our Large Letters Framelits - they were a perfect fit for this awesome Pop-Up card! 

And, yes, everyone at card class was successful in making this card!:)

Hope you enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop...

Valentine Gift Box for Class!

This super sweet and simple White Gift Box is what we're making at stamp classes this week! The Sealed with Love stamp set and embellishments make this so simple to create. 

And my MOST favorite part - the Stitched Circle that the saying is stamped on - Yay for Stitched Shapes Framelits - LOVE them!! :)

Hope to see you at class this week,
