Birthday Whimsey technique class


We've had alot of fun having our friends over these past few days. Yesterday was torture as UPS delivered my Big Shot (among other things) BUT I had my friend from Edmonton here all afternoon, and then our friends came for supper and stayed till midnight so no playing for me!!! TODAY though, I managed to 'play'. My girls LOVE it and can do it by themself as well. I taught them how to make the 'sandwich'. GREAT way to use up lots of designer paper I have lying around. I made one of the cards for my Christmas card class for next week using the Top Note Bigz Die but won't share that card until after the class....

Here are the 4 cards the ladies made at my class last thursday. The class fee included their own Birthday Whimsey set which I had already mounted for them so they could use it that night.

Happy Stampin'

Smiley Jacob


Hope you're having a great week! I'm still going thru my new catalog and drooling :) I don't know how they always can out-do the last one, but they always do!

Here is a pic of our little man taken yesterday. He's so smiley now and really interacting.

These are the sets of cards I made for my cousin and her sister that visited us last week from Cochrane, AB. I just love Groovy Guava and wanted to use it one last time before it retired! I straight CASE'd this card from the Spring/Summer catalog as I wanted something quick, yet beautiful to make for them. (I made 10 of the cards with envies in 1 1/2 hrs or so)

I have my Birthday Whimsey Technique card class tomorrow evening so I"ll be sharing those samples later on this week. Stay tuned!

Happy Stampin'
