September Techniques Class

I hold monthy "Stampin' Techniques" classes in both Oscoda and Tawas. In the class we do three cards that showcase different techniques in stamping. Also, class members make a reference page to go in a techniques book (included in the class fee). A small sample of the technique an a description of the technique go on each page. The reason for this is so the card can be given away (the main purpose in making greeting cards) but the technique will not be forgotten.

This month we will do two projects focusing on Stampin' Up!'s "Watercolor Wonder Crayons."
These are artist quality, watersoluable crayons.

This third project will focus on "faux stitching". This last technique was requested by my Tawas class hostess.

Name Frames

Well, this is my latest obsession. Name frames.

It all started with Shelly's baby (coming any day now) and continues with her older daughter, Keely. Of course my three kids will have them next. They are just too fun! When possible I have used craft inks to reduse fading over time.

I hope you enjoy looking at them half as much as I have enjoyed making them.
