I am loving the new cuddlebug line of stamps at Unity Stamps.  I'm waiting on the new Unicorn Cuddlebug to arrive today.  Used the puffy cloud die for the background along with Tim Holtz distress oxides (peacock feathers/salty ocean) and colored the images with Zig and tombow watercolors.  Tossed in some bling and called it a day! TFL!

New Christmas Cards

Hopefully this is the last of my Christmas cards for the season.  I have made well over 50 cards and probably over 125 tags.  These are all images from Unity Stamps and I colored them with both zig and tombow watercolors.  TFL

Annual Christmas Candy Making

This year Gretchen and I were solo on the candy making for Christmas.  We made our regular molded chocolates and chocolate covered pretzels.  Unfortunately, she was eating most of the profits, lol!  We boxed them up nice and pretty for gifts.  Next up, Christmas "Crack" Candy! TFL

A few homemade projects

 This is my first batch of Shea Butter Luxury Soap.  So far, I've made lavender, bergamot, ocean breeze and clary sage.  It's a work in progress and a real learning experience!
Tried my hand at some homemade bath bombs using lavender and lemongrass essential oils and natural colors.

Shaker cards.  Made a handful of Christmas Shaker Cards using Stampin' Up products, sequins and some sticks and stubby stamps by Judith and Heather. TFL!

Another card class set of projects

We had another card class at Lower Macungie Community Center last night and as always, it was a fun one.  Always a good time meeting new people, enjoying a craft and laughter and stories.  Our instructor makes it a great time.  It's become something I look forward too.  Here is a look at a few of the cards we made this time. 

All cards were done with Stampin' Up products (stamps, inks, dies and embossing powders).  The wine glass cards were done with the new Stampin' Up alcohol markers which are coming out on December 1st.  They blend nice & are much easier to use than copics.  TFL!

Card Class Projects

Been having fun taking some fun card classes every month at a local community center south of my home.  We have a great instructor who makes it fun.  It's a fun 4 hour night to hang out, make cards, make friends and share stories.  The instructor, Gretchen, is a stampin' up demonstrator who does a fabulous job and makes it a fun night.  Here are a few more cards I made in class.  While they are not all my style, I enjoy learning new techniques.  We get to make several of each card at 4 different stations.  TFL!
