Birthday Stamp a Stack

Last weekend I held a Birthday Stamp a Stack class it was lots of fun and everyone left with a stack of birthday cards ready to mail out.

birthday-sas

There were three card designs using the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  Everyone made 4 of each of the cards.  We embellished the cards with Bakers Twine, Linen Thread and Gold Glimmer paper.

I also showed everyone an idea for decorating the Gold Card Tin that you can get free during Sale-A-Bration.  I included the die cuts and paper for them to use on their own tins.

 

Here is a suggested list of items you could order to complete this project and get the Tin for free.

  • Balloon Adventures stamp set #142823 $26  (or get the bundle with the dies which is $53)
  • Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack #142744 $10
  • Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609 $18
  • Card Tine #143833 FREE

Everyone at the class also received a little treat from me.  Here is the whole ensemble showing just one of each card.

The New Classroom is Ready

I think its been well over a year since we decided to turn the old office in our house into a Stamping Classroom.  It’s a slow process when you do it yourself and your husband has a full time job, wants to play golf every weekend, and decides to redo the basement and get a hip replacement too.  But now finally it is done!

I tried to find a photo when we still had furniture and stuff in there but didn’t come across one yet.  Maybe I’ll find it another time.  But to give you an idea this was the room before – just empty.

before-1

It was the old office and had a big desk in it at one point.  When I worked full time I used that as my home office on the days I stayed home. The built in cabinets were a project that Greg and his dad did when we first moved into the house (over 20 years ago).  It was Greg’s first real building project.  His dad taught him well.

before-2

The cabinets came down and we found this smiley face behind them – and a lot of holes in the wall.  We totally forgot the smiley was back there.  Our boys were very little when those were put up.  Greg painted that and they all “helped” build the room.

before-3

Everything is down.  Now it took some time to patch up all the holes, paint all the walls and the ceiling, remove the carpet, add the tile floor, fix all the trim, etc.

And this is what it turned into….

after-1

The walls are painted So Saffron.  We added a tile floor in a herring bone pattern.  The white tables and chairs are from Ikea and so are the gray carts and the white dresser.  The revolving bookcase is from Pottery Barn.

after-2

Here I have the room set up for my Stamper’s Club.  They were the first ones to see and use the room.  Each cart has catalogs, order forms, and pens in the bottom.  Some tools in the center – cleaner, pop up trashcan, stamping pad, I also added bins with clear blocks.  The top has the supplies for the project at that table.

after-3

This past weekend I had my team meeting in here.  We talked business and then stamped.  A few of the girls stayed for a few hours in the afternoon and we worked on some kits and paper pumpkin boxes.  Aspen likes to be right in the middle of everything.

My class schedule is on my website – CLICK HERE.  I hope you will join me sometime in my new classroom!
