Year of Memories Class

August starts the Year of Memories classes.

This is a great book for grandma's and all those people on your Christmas list that are hard to buy for. I make one for my mother in law and mom each year and they love them.
I will still be offering a Christmas bag book class later in the season for those that want to send a smaller gift to some. this one will run you $115 including the album when we are done.
Nicer in smaller doses.

$25 for each class and there will be 4 different classes total.

Class #1 August 23rd - Completing January - April

Class #2 September 20th - Completing May -August

Class #3 October 25th - Completing September - December

Class #4 November 15th - Completing the book with the title page, ending sentiment page, and
any children, pets pages. up to 8 pages included (more pages available at $3 each)

If catch up class is needed we will add a class in early December

Any of the page kits can be ordered completed or kits wise with instructions and pictures for $25

Albums for the class.
Let me know what colors you are interested in and I will grab one on sale if I see the right color.
You will pay what I pay! You will need 1 8X8 album and 1 page refill set (I get 1 album and refill for the 12 months, title/end, and 6 grand kids.) Hobby Lobby is great about offering these at 50% off and they "usually" have the matching refill pages. always good to buy them at the same time if you choose to get this on your own.

Wonderful Weekend

The Summer Fun Bag Book class this weekend was so much fun.
Jane and Rachel did awesome and are so quick!
Hope they enjoyed the class as much as I did. :)

Lizzie made me the above title and this is the small version as the large one is too big.
So it is back to the drawing board to resize when I have some extra time.

This next week looks to be filling up with some baby boy and girl mini books
as well as some more crayon tins so I can send them to the Littleton store.
Card class is still in process. will post a sample set when I finish the "process"

Also starting to plan our romantic getaway in September.
Looking at The Cliff house near Colorado Springs with mountain views and hot tubs.
It should be fun to hike a bit and then sooth out the kinks in the tub. and I believe they
offer some romantic packages with chocolate strawberries and wine. Not sure about the wine so I will check with Zelda on which we should try. Another hotel I am looking at is up in Estes Park and it has strawberries and a monogrammed blanket as well as snow shoe rental. Will need to find out the weather prediction for both and come to a conclusion soon. The springs one is almost full and the others are probably close behind.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend,
Dianne

Needed some wedding cards for the booth.
Used the silhouette and my new Archivers exclusive CD images
A simple cut of this cake and I created 4 cards in 4 different colors.


Pink & Pearls


Peach & Pearls!


Sage & Pearls


Blue & Pearls
Love this stamp set from Stampin up.
I used pearls on the flowers. just a sweet card!


Another of the same just a change in color - pearls are the best!

Closed look at the card for Rachel's bridal shower and the purse is a nugget purse favor for the party!


Open look at the invitation to the bridal shower and another view of the nugget purse.

Weather - Weather - Weather!!!!

Okay the Oregonian in me is fine with rain and some hail a bit of thunder and lightening but this Colorado weather is getting out of hand!
The first really big storm caused flooding in our downstairs office as well as some roof and window damage. Thank goodness for insurance!
But the problem I am having with the weather is it continues every day....
Mid day hits and it is thunder/lightening/hail/tornado warnings/flood warnings/ETC!
I am spending my afternoons keeping Miranda downstairs for safety after that first storm I'm not taking chances. Today she went to sneak upstairs and just as she hit the stairs a huge thunder and lightening combo struck. She turned and looked at me and said sorry. It was so cute I had to laugh. I didn't have an issue again with her going to the upper levels!
On the scrap front I am working on some cards for the Wrought'n Apples booth and some baby boy mini books for Coutour Kids in Littleton. hope to get them done tomorrow and start on baby girl books.
Class wise I have 2 cards of the 6 to 7 planned and some ideas for the others.
I took a mini break and made some adorable bridal shower cards for a wonderful friend Rachel from Washington as well as some mini matching nugget purses. they were just perfect and I loved being able to create some fun items for such a special friend. Congrats Rachel and I hope you have a wonderful party next month. oh and a fun wedding too!!!
Hmmm... oh I remember the other fun project I am planning.
Starting in August I am officially starting the "Year of Memories".
mid August I will host a class for the 1st 4 months of the year.
Each class will be $25 and you will get 8 - 8X8 pages (2 for each month).
I will write up some more on this later as well as get my camera and computer (and cord for camera!) in the same room to get the picture of the Rachel card and purse on here.
Have a wonderful night,
Dianne
