Cards for the Hen House Paperie Class

What a month it has been for us!!

Maggie turned 21 on the 16th!!  Tonight she is having some of her nursing student friends over for fun here at the house.  She is such a blessing and a lovely woman!!!  And in a year?......she will be one of Albuquerque's newest R.N.s.  I can promise you she will be a great one!!

John has begun grad school and work at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and David has made his move to Dallas, Texas to begin school at the University of Texas in Dallas.  He is studying International Business there.

How about some cards.............!

This Saturday afternoon I will be teaching a class where we will use one Unity stamp set to make three fun cards.  Each card will use a different technique on it.

Class will be from 3-5pm this Saturday at the Hen House Paperie.  I hope to see you there!!

Sewing Card Class

There is just something about sewing and everything sewing related that gets me excited.  So I've decided to teach a class using sewing icons as our theme next Friday afternoon at China Phoenix 2. 

Besides making beautiful cards, I will teach you how to take an old pattern and turn it into a fabulous flower using a Tim Holtz die!  I have so many old patterns that I keep hanging onto.  How can you through them away?  I made clothes for my children out of them!!  Then there are the patterns that were purchased for .99 each but never used. Well, these patterns are out of hiding and getting a new life that I can feel great about! Feel free to bring your old patterns and die cut away at class.

I wish they really did make dress forms with hips like this Tim Holtz image.  Maybe I would have bought one......

This sentiment is FAB!!

Here is our third and final card that we will make.

I just finished making this card.  It took forever for it to come together, but now I love it!  This pad of Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl paper has been calling to me to get pulled out and used.  We will make a pleated, paper ruffle as we construct this card!.  Something about folding and messing around with beautiful paper......felt really good.  Look out!!  I may be obsessing with this technique in days to come.

Class will be next Friday afternoon from 1-4p.m. Hope to see you there!!
