Card Class at Scrapdoodles!

Well hello!

Hope your week is off to a great start! I'm spending the day with my four year old... playing outside in the sun right now! I'm so glad the winter hasn't been too hard on us this year!

Today I want to share the cards we will be making at my upcoming card class at Scrapdoodles. I haven't had a card class there since last spring and I am so excited to be starting it up again! Here is what we will be making in our March class:

A Fun Fabric Flower

A Little Copic Love

An Easy Marker Technique

A Stamped Tissue Paper Flower

Fun, right? And, if you aren't really a card maker, remember that these techniques can translate very well into scrapbook pages as well.

Here are the class details:

Springtime Greetings Class


Did you have a good weekend? It was nice having the extra day, wasn't it? Now on to the busy week! Along with the normal stuff, I'll be prepping for the upcoming weekend- I'm so excited to be teaching and cropping at the Scrapdoodles Spring Retreat in Glen Allen! Yahoo!

I thought I'd post the cards we will be making in my class. This time around I decided to go for a matching set of cards perfect for spring! Here they are:

Fun, right? I am really looking forward to both my class and the crop! I'm not looking forward to packing up all my stuff though... I always feel like I need to take everything with me! I am planning to work on some birthday cards and some pages from our Disney vacation so at least that should make it a little easier... we'll see!

If you would like to join me for class on Friday, you can! Classes are open to anyone and I do have a few spots available. Here is the information:

Springtime Greetings Class with Tessa Wise

Raining Flowers in Gray and Tangerine


How is your day going? My littlest and I are organizing fools today- we've tackled the toys and hopefully the mess we've made while cleaning (lol!) will be all put away before everyone gets home tonight. Organizing is fun but when your helper is four and wants to keep every single toy we've ever gotten, it makes for a long day!

I thought I'd take a quick break from our organizing mess to share a card I made earlier this week:

All products by Stampin' Up! unless noted

Stamps: Raining Flowers set, Thank You Kindly set
Ink: Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, Peach Parfait
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Naturals Ivory cardstock; Tangerine Tango and Peach Parfait textured cardstock; First Edition DSP: Paper Heart collection patterned paper by Crate Paper
Accessories: Spray Misting Tool, Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, Linen Thread; gray button- craft supply

I love how the flower turned out with all its layers, especially the book print! I think this card would look great with reds and pinks instead of the orange, too- and it could be for Valentine's day with a little lovey dovey sentiment!

Anyways, better keep this short and get back to those toys! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

A Springtime Hello Card

Hello and happy Monday!

Did you have a good weekend? I spent the weekend with my family- we had a great time and I even got some crafting time in! Today is another story though... I've got a little girl home sick with the stomach bug. Yuck! I'm hopeful that it won't make the rounds through the whole house... I almost thought we made it through the winter without catching any bugs. It's been so mild this year and in VA where I live, it already feels like spring! Even my flowers think so- they've been up for a couple weeks now. With that springtime feeling in mind, I thought I'd share this card today:


cardstock- Stampin' Up!
patterned paper- October Afternoon Sidewalks Collection
sticker- October Afternoon Sidewalks Collection
stamp- Hooray Clear set by Studio Calico/Hero Arts

I love the look of the crazy patterned background. I've been gravitating towards patterns lately- lots of them! This line from October Afternoon is one of my favorites. I can't wait to see thier new lines in person! I have a feeling lots of my money will be going to them this spring! :)

Well, thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope your day goes well!
