Hope your week is off to a good start.  Yesterday, I hosted the monthly card class and used a class plan that Stampin’ Up! provided to demonstrators.  It was aptly titled “Nutty Notecards” as the Acorny Thank You stamp set was used.  The class was lots of fun and in addition to preparing four notecards and embellishing the envelopes, a box was was assembled to hold the notecards.  Thus it would make an excellent gift.  In addition to learning how to use the Gift Bag Punch Board, attendees also used spritzers thus learning how simple it is to change the look of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Yes, we changed the background color of the beautiful Into the Woods DSP!  If you’d like the directions for making these cards and gift box, feel free to contact me.

Andrea (Andy), one of my regular class participants, surprised me with a small gift yesterday!  She makes cross book marks and presented me with a box of them.  Enough for sharing.  Below is a photo of a silver and gold cross…to make the crosses, she used Stampin’ Up! Silver and Gold 1/8″ ribbon. The photo does not do them justice…they are beautiful! It was an unexpected gift but is treasured!
