Spring Shadow Box Class – Round 2!

Here’s the last round of stampers who attended the Spring Shadow Box Class. Just take a look at these happy faces after completing their work of art! I had a great time with them and enjoyed guiding them while they put everything together!

This is the 3rd in the series of 4 shadow boxes, we will end this series with the Summer Shadow Box. My friend Debra and I are looking forward to creating another series with a new stamp set from the upcoming annual catalog.


Weekend Classes, Oh What Fun!

I had a weekend full of classes! On Saturday I held my monthly Central Florida Stampers Class in Oviedo with my friend Debra LaFountaine. We had a total of 38 stampers who made the cards below.

Then on Sunday, I teamed up again with Debra and we held the first of our two Spring Shadow Box classes. Take a look at their happy faces after completing their projects!

Amelia, Rita, Debbie, Fran, Janine, Birgitt, Sheila, and Diane had a great time. Diane made one for her and another as a gift. I just love helping everyone create something they can be proud of making, great job everyone!

2017 Winter Shadow Box

Sing Deck the Halls and So Much More!

My stampers were singing while they were making these awesome Eclipse Technique cards. They were literally singing, I had the 70’s music station on and there was a lot of singing!

I just love this technique and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) was the perfect match! This pack of paper has musical notes and the words to a few Christmas songs in Black on White and White on Black. We didn’t stop at musical notes, my stampers also made a FALL card.

This was my 2nd version of the card, below was my first.

I decided to go for the simpler, crisp look but a couple of my stampers loved the sponge version and made that one.

I was also playing around with this one.

After SINGing a song or two and FALLing for the other cards it was time for a cats and flowers!

This card was inspired by Sue Campfield, I love the hidden cat in the flowers.
