Another Christmas Class For You

Another Class Opportunity

O Holy Night Class

I'm very pleased to offer this class.

The projects are beautiful and help us remember

the true meaning of the season.


This dramatic, panaramic view is beautiful.

The starry sky provides the backdrop for the nativity scene.

This is the closed view.

The nativity is surrounded by a starry sky.


The inside of the card with the sentiment.

The navity scene opens up.... the inside sentiment.

This gatefold card is "locked" by the sentiments....

...and the nativity scene "pops" out to reveal a stand up diarama card.

The view from above, so you can see the "pop out."

This is a truly special card.

A votive candle behind the scene lights up the nativity.

The photo really doesn't do justice to how lovely this card really is.

Here's the card partially open.

And here's the rest of the project, with the lovely scripture quotes.

I've worked hard to keep the cost down for this class.

I have purposely only used one stamp set.

Mark and I will do the die cutting for all the projects, so you will not need to purchase the dies (although I do recommend that, so that you can make your own designs in the future) and all the papers will be cut and included for you.


The gorgeous Designer Series paper is sold out,

and Stampin' Up! is not making any more.

So, I'll also be including several sheets of DSP in your packet when

its mailed, so you can make more projects.


You will need these supplies to complete these projects:

Basic stamping supplies, adhesives, including "tear and tape";

Snips, or scissors (#103579)

Night of Navy stamp pad (#1447110)

Medium white envelopes (#159236)

Tear and Tape (#154031)

Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755)

Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

Paper Snips (#103579)

Clear block "C" (#118486)

Clear block "D" (118485)

Clear Block "E" (#118484)

I've included the item numbers so you can easily purchase any of these products through my online store, here.


You will also need the stamp set.

You can see the stamp set "Night Divine"

on page 14-16 in the Mini catalog.

If you would like to also get the matching dies,

you can get them as a "bundle" and save 10%.


Stamp set alone, "Night Divine", $27.00, (#161987)

"Night Divine" bundle, 10% discount ($48.50) (#161997)

Be sure to order quickly so that you will have the stamp set

in time for the class.


I have included the item numbers for these supplies so that you can order them from my 24 hour store here.


You will also need a votive candle.

I like the flickering ones, and usually buy them at the

Dollar Tree for a good price.


This class will be held on Zoom.

Choose the date/time that fits your schedule best.

If you cannot attend at one of these times,

I'll be recording the class and

you can follow along with the recording at your convenience.

Santa's Workshop

I'm so excited about our upcoming Santa's Workshop!
I started doing these about three years ago, with the thought that it would be fun to get together the day after Thanksgiving, and NOT go to the malls, but get together and stamp and craft and get some last minute stuff done!  So that's what we do!  
For the first time, we'll meet in the dining room at  
The Sizzler Restaurant in Fullerton, on Harbor and Brea Blvd.
They have a fabulous, fresh salad bar that includes tacos, chili, soups, spaghetti, and soft serve ice cream and other desserts, PLUS all the great salad ingredients you could possibly want!  Of course you can also order a steak or shrimp or whatever sounds good to you.  So you won't go hungry for your dinner!   
SO, come and relax and have fun!  
I'm still creating, but here's some of the things I've come up with so far..   
A coffee caddy to hold candy, "K" cups, or whatever you would like!
Above:  M&M's in a treat tube make a cute gift card holder;
 a Rudolf cup is great for candy or a "K" cup;
a Cocoa packet is a fun neighbor or teacher gift;  
and chocolate-covered espresso beans make for another cute gift card holder. 
Handmade cards make a great gift! Let's decorate this box, and then fill it with four cards and envelopes.  
I have several more projects in the planning stage... you'll go home with lots of projects completed, and there will be some surprises too! 


Date: Friday, November 24, 2 - 9 pm
Cost: $60.
You will purchase your dinner at the Sizzler separately.
RSVP NOW.. no later than Monday, November 13.


You can see a video of these projects on my Facebook business page here, However you need to have a Facebook account to see the video.
