Cascading Cards, Monday, May 7 @ 5:30pm, $20

Cascading cards are quick and easy to make, they fold flat and are a great card to make if you are looking for a card to make a lot of in a short time.  I will provide all the paper and material ..... you simply need to bring the following tools and supplies:

A Martha Stewart Scoring Board and Bone Folder
A Paper Trimmer
A package of Foam Adhesive dots -- penny sized
A pencil, ruler, and a pair of scissors
Roller adhesive and two sided tape such as Scor-Tape, 1/2 inch

The Perfect Bag -- Wed., April 25, 5:30 - 7:30 pm, $20.

We will make bags in several different sizes, from the largest to the smallest.  I will provide all the paper and ribbon; you will be able to choose what paper you want to use from a large selection of double sided paper.  I will also bring dies for the butterfly and rosette.  We will not be making the Christmas bags in this class; we will be using other paper that is more for the spring / summer season.  You should have time to make at least four different bags, depending on what embellishments you decide to put on them as the embellishments sometimes take as long to make as the bags themselves.  After class you will be provided with all the instructions and bag measurements in a PDF file sent via email.

Materials you should bring to class include:

A bottle of Glossy Accents or other quick dry glue
A roll of 1/2 inch or 1 inch Scor-Tape or other two sided tape such as the red backed sticky tape
A Crop-a-Dile if you have one -- this is not essential but will make the class proceed faster
A paper trimmer
A Martha Stewart Scoring Board and bone folder
If you don't have a scoring board, let me know and I will bring an extra one.

Please email me by Monday, April 23 at the latest if you wish to sign up for this class.  My email is

Diamond Fold cards, class post-poned until summer

In class you will make all 4 cards if time allows..............I will provide all the materials needed, including paper, stamps, ink, ribbon and diecuts.  These cards fold up so the front flap tucks into the diamond like a pocket, yet exposing a second diamond on the inside.

Supplies you will need for this class:

A Martha Stewart Scoring Board and bone folder
A Paper Trimmer
Roller Adhesive
A fine tip glue pen
A bottle of glossy accents

Tri-shutter card, Monday, May 14 at 5:30pm, $20

In this class we will make a tri-shutter card which looks so much more difficult than it is.  The card itself only takes minutes to make but the embellishing and covering it with paper is what takes all the time because you want to coordinate the colors just right.  I used leftover paper from the first mini album we made, the policy envelope album because I had a lot of little pieces left from that project and this only requires small pieces of DSP to cover the card sections.  I will bring my daisy punches if you want to learn how to make the daisy on the card as well.

Supplies needed for this class:

Martha Stewart Scoring Board and bone folder
Paper Trimmer
Roller adhesive, a sheet of foam adhesive dots / penny sized
A stylus set and a pair of tweezers if you want to make the daisy
A bottle of Glossy Accents
1/4 inch Scor-tape or other two sided permanent tape
Designer scrapbook paper to cover the card with

If you would like to take this class, please send me an email indicating that to by Saturday, May 12 at the latest.
