Rose Wonder Card Set!

Treat yourself to some relaxing watercolor “therapy” and, at the same time, create a gorgeous set of greeting cards, complete with a very easy-to-make packaging.  Since this card set has a relatively thin profile, why not create several gift sets to have on hand going into the new year?  They certainly won’t take much storage space, and you’ll be so glad to have them when you need a lovely gift.

Christmas Fun for Stamp Class!


Here's a little Sneak Peek for some of the fun Christmas goodies we'll be crafting this week! We'll make this super cute and easy Tagged Treat Jar! I was inspired by the cute jar of treats that we got at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event last month (you'll see mine if you're coming to class). - A simple idea, but so cute!


And we'll also make these super easy, but very practical gift tags. I know I make mine each year, and always find that the 'large' stack I thought I had ready quickly runs out! These are not only super cute, but super easy to duplicate! And, if you have the current Holiday catalog - you'll see that I was inspired by the catalog to make these!! :)

We'll also be making three other quick cards!

I hope you'll be joining us,
