Christmas in July

So, here are some of the previously mentioned holiday cards from my card classes. I am very sad that many of the sets used have retired, so therefore will not be reappearing in any of my upcoming holiday card classes. *sad face*. But hey! Click here for a list of carryover sets from last year's Holiday mini that aren't in the new one or in the idea book. Some beautiful stamps in there!

This one uses More Merry Messages set (it carried over!),Snow Festival DSP, Champagne glimmer paper, Gumball Green c/s & ink, rhinestone jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, oh! and the Apothecary Framelits.

Greeting Card Kids set (retired), Bells & Boughs set (retired), Snow Festival DSP, Whisper White c/s, Cherry Cobbler c/s & ink, coordinating markers, Dazzling Details (glitter glue). XL Scallop Circle Die, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 2-1/2" Circle punch.

More Merry Messages set, Evergreen set (also carried over -yay!), Snow Festival DSP, Whisper White c/s, Midnight Muse & Baja Breeze (retired) ink, 1-3/8" circle punch, Dazzling Details, Stampin' Dimensionals.

Teeny Tiny Wishes set, Snow Festival DSP, Whisper White c/s, Cherry Cobbler c/s & ink, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Plenty of Petals TEIF, Dazzling Details, Stampin' Dimensionals.

Snow Much Fun set (retired *super sad face*), Snow Festival DSP, Baja Breeze (retired) & Whisper White c/s, Cherry Cobbler c/s & ink, Basic Gray ink, coordinating marker, Dazzling Details, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips

More Merry Messages set, Snow Festival DSP, Crumb Cake, Whisper White & Primrose Petals c/s, Early Espresso ink, Decorative Label punch, rhinestone jewels, Stampin Dimensionals.
Notice some similarities? Last year I held 2 classes, each designed around a package of DSP. Each attendee received all the pre-cut supplies for 4 each of the cards above, a package of the DSP, and a bottle of Dazzling Details. I didn't have time for my normal 3 classes, so I consolidated, in a sense. This year will probably be back to my regular format, as I'm not head over heels with any of the holiday DSPs this year.  My scanner wasn't functioning when I took these, so color isn't very true.
When I find the 2nd class pics I'll see about posting them for you.
Be sure to check out the sidebar -Holiday mini catalog is available starting today!!!
Happy Crafting!

Bad Blogger's Crafts of the Week

I really enjoy reading good bloggers, but I'm hoping if any of you followers are still around, you don't mind checking out blogs of bad bloggers like myself. Many life changes since the last blog posting. I have implemented a "craft-of-the-week" this summer to keep myself crafting, and using the supplies I just "had to have". I started 6/24.
Weeks 1&2 were these cute recipe boxes:
I've got more paper ordered so I can make some more -love the way they turned out with the matching divider cards.

Week 3 were swaps for Girl Scout camp that I volunteered at with my 3 kiddos:
We made over 150 to go with our camp names: Bunny, CrocStar, Snorkel, and Pearl (like in Finding Nemo)

Week 4 was basket weaving at camp:
Basket weaving (for those of you who don't already know), is so amazingly zen. Must do this again!

Week 5 was these super-fun and easy necklaces:

I'll be selling these along with some other style necklaces at a community craft fair in the fall.

Week 6 will be a bed for this little cutie, our newest family member:

Thanks for hanging in with me! I'm thinking along with Craft of the Week, I need to start Blog of the Week. :)
Have a great afternoon wherever you are!
Happy Crafting!
