Christmas Gift Class November 28, 29 and December 1

I hope you can join me for some cute stocking stuffers, mini gifts and gift card holders as we get in the holiday spirit with Hot Cocoa, muffins and Christmas music!  I'm offering 3 choices of day and time this year, but class is one week earlier.

You'll choose only the items YOU would like to make from a variety of choices. You might enjoy: Snowman Soup, M & M tubes, gift card holders, lip balm holders and more. 

Please let me know your choices as soon as possible because I may need to order some things for the class.

Lip Balm Holder with Stampin' Up! Pomegranate scented lip balm: $3.00
(The idea came from LeAnn Pugliese.)

M&M tubes: $1.00
Choose Snowman, Rudolph, Gingerbread man or Penguin
A Cup of Christmas Tea: $2.00--has a friendship poem that you can add to the inside
Choose Olive or Real Red
Candles: $4.00
Choose Gold Embossed on Vanilla (with bling on star), Silver Embossed on White (with bling-not shown-in the center of each flake)
or Holly and Pine on Vanilla
Snowman Soup: $3.00--choose Pool Party Aqua or Wild Wasabi Green

Gift Card Holders: $2.00--These are a cute little design just larger than the gift card itself.  They are by Dawn Griffith.....I wanted to try a style that we haven't made before. The belly band just slides off the wallet style holder.

Choose Snowman or Tree

Gift Tags: $2.50--These folded tags will say "to: from:" inside and have a sticky dimensional on the back to allow you to attach them to your package or bag later.  One set includes 5 tags (one of each design) in a cellophane bag.

Hand Sanitizer holder--without sanitizer bottle-$1.50

December Technique Class and Stamp Club

Join me on Thursday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. or Friday, December 7 at noon. Please let me know if you are able to make it or not by Tuesday at 7 p.m. I'd love to see you all here!

$10 for 4 projects or free for 6 month/$25 stamp club members or with a $50 order. Only $5 with a $25 order as well...

First, is this torn edges card. I got the idea from my friend and stampin' idol, Janine Tinklenberg...Her card was a one-layer card with masking, but I love torn edge snow, so I did it this way.
Next is this Alcohol Reinker form of Emboss Resist. This was a lot of fun---I hope you like it too.

I loved a very similar card to this by my friend Kim Bolzenthal, so I changed it from Soft Suede to Cherry Cobbler and simplified it just a bit by using four punched images instead of three slightly taller images. I hope you like it!

We will also make an easel card with a small 2013 calendar on it.
