Blooming Gardens Class

Wow, life had been keeping me busy!! But busy means creating in my world so it has been fun!!  I have been having a wonderful summer market season at Mentor Farmer's Market on Fridays from 2:30-6:30 and Willoughby Farmer's Market on Saturdays from 8-noon.  Stop out and see me if you haven't yet this summer.

Next week is my stamping event for the summer, called 'Blooming Gardens' from Our Daily Bread Collection of papers.  We will be making 8 cards, two interactive, from papers and stamps from this amazing company for $25.  That includes cut papers, directions with photo and step by step directions and envelope.  If you have not signed up for the class you have a few more days and I have a few openings.  I have already cut for the class but need to do the die cutting, so let me know as soon as possible please!!  I can only take 4-5 per class and availability is limited in number so check my calendar for available times.

I also would like to publicly announce that my long time Monthly Mojo Classes have been canceled.  I have been teaching this class for over 12-15 years every month but my time and heart have not been into it.  I was planning on stopping it in September but needed to do it earlier.  Thanks to all of you who have attended these classes over the years!!  I will still be doing special stamping classes and events but not monthly.

Birds and blooms

Here is another of the cards in a box that I made for markets.  Each is completely different and they fold into an A2 card and can be sent in the mail.

Card in a Box - Butterfilies and flowers

I have 7 new cards in a box that I will be selling at market in the coming weeks.  These sell as fast as I can make them.  They are really time consuming but fun to make since they are really each different.

Pull up step card

I have a few new folds I have learned and this is one of them!!  It is a pull up step card and I used die from Heartfelt Creations.  I lam loving these dies with the branch, leaves and little flowers.  They cut/stamp multiple images at a time and can be used in so many different ways.  I also used papers from Our Daily Bread Designs called Blushing Roses.  This card stands up on it's own but can be folded down to fit into an A2 envelope.   I have many many different themes of these and will be selling them at my markets.  Come stop and say 'hi!"

That's how we roll!

I have used this stamp set many many times since people love this card but my favorite way is to make it into an easel card.  THe stamps are from Unity.  I have one of these in my Etsy store and 3-4 more in different colors I will have with me at my markets. 

Stop in on Friday from 2:30-6:30 at Garfield Recreational Park on Route #20 in Mentor for a great farmer's market in the shade of trees and on grass!!!  Or join be at the Willoughby's Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings from 8-noon in the parking lot of City Hall on Route #20 for another great market.

Herbs by Stacy

I love growing, using and of course making cards with images of fresh herbs.  This card was made in our June Mojo Class using Stacy Stamps images called herbs.  I use various colors of  green inks to make them look more real.

By the beach

Here is another card that we made in the June Mojo Class.  The stamps are from Art Impressions and are from a set called Beach Trifold.  This is just one of three of the beach scenes in the set.  It was colored with Copic markers.
