Wow, several more hrs and we'll be able to order from the new Stampin' Up! idea book and catalog. You will be able to order starting 2pm EST, or noon MT. As well at that time the new catalog will be posted online.

Owl be yours pillow

ALL CLASS INSTRUCTIONS - instant download :)

Hi all,
I have had this idea to make an owl pillow based on my Owl Ensemble templates, I made over a year ago,  for a while now. And finally  I sat down and did it. For he first trial run I used non-SU! fabric to see how things turn out. And they turned out well.

The size of the pillow is approx 10" (width) and 7 1/2" - 8" height. Besides fabric I used the 3 1/2" circle die, the fabric adhesive sheet, and the circles die for the center of the eyes and the middle part of the eyes, and feeling for the pillow.

Snow Much Fun

ALL CLASS INSTRUCTIONS - instant download :)


Christmas in June, oh how I wish Christmas temperatures outside. I am done with the summer, and it just started. Can you tell, I am not really a fan of the summers in Georgia. Philly was the same. Me and humidity don't get along too well. And the low blood pressure doesn't help either. LoL.

Anyway, this is the last project I  made for my sneaky peeky online class.  I used the Christmas set from the new catalog Sneak Peek items called Snow so much.

New Sneaky Peeky Online class

Hi all,
I am back from vacation and slowly getting back in daily routine. Things are not easy...lol... since we still haven't unpacked from our move, still a house full with boxes. Oh well....

Anyway....I am so excited that this year I am ATTENDING CONVENTION!!! Yes, finally :) My vacation days worked out and in 5 weeks I will be on my way to SLC. And another great news, I am display stamper for convention, so the next few days I will be busy finishing my projects, so won't be posting much. But that wouldn't mean that I am not creating, although I did take a long break from stamping. But getting back to the routine now. How ever, most likely, I won't be swapping at convention. I know!!! But it's for my own sanity.

Anyway....it's time to announce the next online class, which will feature products from the New Catalog Sneak peek. This online class will have 5 projects and will last 10-11 days. Meaning, projects will be posted every other day on average. I need to space out the project a little bit, as it's little crazy here and being all day at work.

Details:
Start Date : June 15th
End Date : June 25th
Where: Online. I will send you invitation to join the site around June 14th, and for each project I will post the templates, videos, pictures and supplies. Note: there are NOT going to be PDF tutorials, you will need to watch the videos.

The site will be available for at least 3 months after the class starts, so you can watch the videos at your own pace.

Price: $17.

You can register by clicking on the Add to Cart button bellow.
