Yesterday I had 10 wonderful stampers at my house for the first round of the Winter Shadow Box Class. They all had a great time and made these lovely Shadow Boxes that my friend Debra LaFountain and I designed.
Our second class for this Shadow Box will be Sunday, November 12th at 1:00pm. If you’re local and missed this one you can register for the November 12th class by clicking on this link HERE.

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.

It’s been a while since the Stampin’ Amigas have been together as a whole group so yesterday was the day! It was 7 hours of catching up and lots of laughs, some food, some drinks, and of course stamping and crafting! Below are a few pictures we managed to capture.
First the food and drinks!
Now the cards and crafts
This was my card. I love the new Pineapple stamp and the Boho Chic embossing folder complements it very well!
Patti Sharkey had us make these awesome huge flowers. I’m going to make a few in the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors to display in my mall classes.
Iina Lee’s card. I love the layout and I will be using it for one of my upcoming Stamp-A-Stacks.
Debra LaFountaine’s card. Debra gave us the option of making the Dotted Line or Flower version, I choose the flowers!
Cyndra Alderman’s card. Cyndra showed us how the same design can be used with different layouts.
Caught up in the fun of making those huge flowers!
