Adult Education Classes Week #3!


I wanted to show the girls in my Adult Education Class how to create projects using Punch Art & Die Art this week and that's exactly what we did for Week #3! Let me start out with the Santa card:



Isn't he the cutest? I did use the retired Mustache Die but everything else is current. The Petal Burst Embossing Folder was perfect to add all of the background embossing for his beard:



And our new Leaf Punch works great as a little bit of evergreen with holly berries cut with the 1/4" Handheld Punch:



The remainder of the tools I used are the Layering Circles Framelits Dies, and the 1/2" Circle Punch. For the tag, I used the Lemon Builder Punch for the mustache and the retired Angled Tag Topper Punch for the tag shape. Very quick & simple!


Our final project uses the retired Pillow Box Die and all we did was wrap some designer paper around the middle, glued the ends together and then snipped the end into a "V". The sentiment layer is from the Labels To Love stamp set cut with the Everyday Label Punch:



More to come next week as I show you Week #4 of projects! Thanks for visiting me today. Enjoy your week!

Merry Monday Challenge #261!

Welcome to our new Merry Monday Challenge! A great way to start up a collection of Christmas cards so you'll have them all ready to send in December!


This week, Kelly is our hostess and she is asking for Ornaments on our cards. I used the Star Of Light stamp set to add my ornament:




The swirl image was perfect to use as a branch to hang my ornament from. I love that I stuck with a lot of white-space on my card that make the colors really pop. I added a simple layer to the center of my ornament that I glued in place with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals: 




Have a gone ahead and dove in to get a head start on your Christmas cards yet? It's not too late to start now by using our theme this week at Merry Monday Challenge! Visit the blog to see the wonderful inspiration from my teammates this week!

Challenge for my Customers and Downline!

Good Morning Blog Readers! Before I show you my post for today, I've had quite a few of you ask what I am storing my new Stampin' Blends in. I had mentioned in yesterday's video that I would tell you and I forgot to mention it at the end. This is what I am talking about that I just love:



I also use this holder for my Stampin' Write Markers. You can search the title of the item for more choices too. Click on this link:



Now on to today's post. I have lots and lots of inspiration for you today. I host a challenge each month on a group Facebook page that I created for all of my customers and downline. I post the challenge and allow a whole month for participants to join in. This month, I posted one of my cards as inspiration:



These were my instructions:

September Challenge: Please use the card I am posting as a "Sketch Challenge". For those of you new to sketch challenges, you use the layout of the card to create a new card. The daisy can be replaced with a different element. The sentiment layer can be replaced with a different shape (die or punch). Use your own colors and designer papers. Here are the measurements to help you:

Card Base: 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold.
Layer 2 top: Designer paper 4" x 2".
Layer 2 bottom: Designer paper 4" x 3-1/4".
One sentiment layer
One element (in place of the daisy)
Ribbon or something else where the two designer papers meet.
Deadline to join in is September 30. This is a contest and I will post voting like we did last month. Winner will receive a package of Foil Snowflakes and a package of Year Of Cheer Embellishments found on page 37.


Here are all of the entries into my challenge. I had 13 girls participate this month and all of the cards were beautiful! I have added the names of each designer on the photos:





Deb's card was the winning card chosen by individual voting!












Thanks so all of you that participated. Your cards were all beautiful! Stay tuned for next month as I host an "Inspiration Photo Challenge"!
