Sugar, Sugar

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!  I had a great Saturday--it was a "no alarm clock" day--those are the best!!!  I hadn't had one in forever, so it was great to have a lazy dazy kinda morning!
I've been playing with Kaisercraft's new Sugar, Sugar line and loving the soft pastel colors of this birthday line.  I made one for my upcoming BLOSSOMS & BUTTERFLIES class and then had paper leftover so I made a few extras to have on hand.

Here is the one we will do in my May/June class.

Here are the two extras I made--I'll make sure to bring them to class if anyone wants a closer look.

I'm loving the new Kaisercraft rub-ons--and they go on extra easy!!

This one is using one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders--I really need to use these more often! They are so simple!  (Plus we just got a big restock in the stores now!)

This one also uses the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the flower--this color is Watermelon.

Our Clipper Street location in Langley just got a HUGE replenishment of Glimmer Mist today! Yippee!! We have about 60 colors currently in stock including 12 NEW colors!  
Speaking of Glimmer Mist--there are only about 10 spots left in my Apr 25 SUGAR & SPICE card class in Langley--this is the last chance before I retire those cards!   We'll be using three different Glimmer Mists  on our flowers--you can scroll down several posts for the samples. Give the Langley location a call at 604-514-2229

we'll I've run out of steam for the day--
Hope you enjoy the cards!

Time for an update!!

So I've been a little slack in the update department!  So sorry!
This Spring has started out a little on the crazy side!  
Hockey tryouts and rep tournament planning is in full swing again!  We'll be heading down to Portland, Oregon for our first tournament in four weeks--where does the time go?
Work has been a bit crazy, as is usual around submission time!  I've got a full class of 43 in Coquitlam tomorrow morning and I've just completed the finishing touches on my May/June classes.  My next set of card classes are called "BLOSSOMS & BUTTERFLIES" and here is a couple of sneak peeks:

First off... a little pink and black!  

I'm loving all the new products that are finally showing up in the stores--so much yumminess to choose from!  This paper is new from Bo Bunny--it's their "Alissa" line and it's very pretty. We'll be using my new favs from Kaiser Craft--loving the rhinestone lines!!  This card features the black ones, but they also come in clear, pearl and pink.  Here's hoping we see them in all of our fav colors!  I've also got the brand new Kaiser Rub-ons to play with--so many new ones came in and these are PERFECT for our cardmaking!
Here's another closer look--check out the black flowers from Kaiser Craft!

The next card I'm going to share is from the new SEI line, Mimosa.  This is such a fun and summery line--love the bits of glitter and shimmer throughout the papers.  And the rub-ons are amazing!!

Now the fun thing about this card is the variety of rub-ons--there are several different fun COLORED rub-ons so we will have many different versions of the same card!

Aren't they pretty--they make me think of summertime--yaaaa!!

So there's a couple of samples for you!  The dates for the classes are as follows:

Saturday, May 23rd in Coquitlam 
Monday, May 25th in Langley
Thursday, June 18th in Coquitlam
Saturday June 20th in Langley

We just started signups in Langley this past week and our May 25th class in Langley is already over 30 people, so don't delay!  You can give Clipper Street a call at 604-514-2229 for Langley or 604-525-4762 for Coquitlam or you can sign up here.

I'll share a couple more cards soon, but I better get to work now!
