1st Birthday Card & Gift Bag

Here is a card I made for a1st Birthday Party for my cousin's daughter, Giuliana.

The designer papers are retired and the stamp sets "Wagon Full of Fun" (cupcake) is retired and the Happy Birthday portion comes from the "All Holidays" stamp set that is retiring as of the July 1st new catalog.

(wish I took the time to take pics with my camera instead of my blackberry since the coloring is so off)

Have a great day.

Anniversary Card

At Friday night's class we used the "Cheers to You" stamp set (retiring) and the "Morning Cup" stamp set (see previous post).

Following is a card using one of the images from "Cheers to You".   Since yesterday was my 17 year wedding anniversary I decided to give it to my husband.

The portion of the card with the champagne glasses and the silver paper and dots came from Jen Sanns' idea on a card she did a long time ago.  The rest of the card using the Scallop Trim Border punch, the Finial Press embossing folder along with the Organza ribbon and Rhinestone were my added touches to glam the card up a bit.

Enjoy your day.

Where has the time gone...

Time has slipped away from me.  I realized that I never posted my May class calendar and it is already the second week of June - unbelievable - where did half a year go?  My daughter is just finishing her first year of high school and it feels like yesterday when we were attending her 8th grade graduation.

We have had beautiful weather here in Long Island since Memorial Day weekend.  My husband, Charlie and my daughter, Cristina both work at the beach so we are always hoping for beautiful weekends during the summer months.  So far, the weather is on our side.

I hope you all have a wonderful summer.  For now, I'll leave you with my June and July class schedules.

Below is my July schedule.  I will be using stamp sets from the new catalog, but I did not get my catalog yet so I can not announce the stamp set I will be using just yet.  Stay tuned.

Friday, July 1 - Card Class

Friday, July 8 - NO CLASS - Jersey Shore Weekend

Friday, July 15 - Card Class

Friday, July 22 - NO CLASS - Workshop Weekend in PA

Friday, July 29 - Card Class 


I created this card quickly after I had seen a similar card on Deb Fearns blog here.  I case'd the teapot and cup from Deb's card and I used the same designer series paper line "Autumn Spice" (retired), but I changed the layout.  The stamp set is "Morning Cup".  I'll be using this card in this coming Friday night's class (6/10/11) along with the "Cheers to You" stamp set.  I'll show you a card from that set tomorrow.
