The May Class to Go Kit is now available to be ordered.  You will need to have some supplies at home to complete the kit as shown.  There are two options for this Class to Go Kit – one will include the stamp set and the other will be without the stamp set.  So if you already have this stamp set (or prefer to use another set you already own) then you can purchase the second option that includes only the consumable supplies.  Or purchase both and have materials to make two sets – one for you and one to give as a gift.  I am also adding an option for Demonstrators to purchase only the instructions.  Below are all the details for the May Class to Go Kit – featuring the Wow Flowers stamp set and Flower Power Card Elements from the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book.  This class features a cute card holder that holds 12 textured cards and matching envelopes.

I think I covered it all.  I have been wanting to do something with this stamp set and the card elements for a few months now and when I saw the June Stampin’ Success it all came together.  My inspiration piece was the treat holder on the front cover.  I hope you like it.  The cards include a combination of birthday, thank you and blank cards.

Happy Stampin’!

Wow Flowers Thank You

As I was preparing for my class on Thursday I cleaned my craft table and made a pile of card stock scraps to put away in my scrap folders.  I noticed three colors that I had lying together and thought what a good color combination.  It was Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red.  I’m sure that somewhere else that combination has already been found but that was how I happened upon it – so I set the scraps aside because I wanted to make a card using those colors.   As I look through the catalog – this color combination or something close to it is already in the catalog – the new Bright Delights rub-ons have Rose Red, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss; the Flower Fusion has Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Old Olive; even the Retro Fresh Style Watch includes these colors – I guess I wasn’t so original after all.  Tonight I took a few minutes and put together a quick card. This would make a great one-sheet wonder idea.
