File Folder book class

 This special memory book is made from a file folder. 
Yes, one file folder and some card stock. 
Would you like to make one? 
I will be doing a class on it November 18th
at 1:00 at Schroeder's. 
The fee is $25.
I will have all of the supplies you need and they will be cut for you.
You will learn how to cut and assemble it so you can make more if you would like. 

This one is for Halloween. It is the one that I made when I took the class to learn how to make them.
You could make any theme that you would like once you know how to cut and fold your file folder. 

When you untie the ribbon and open it you have his section. 
There is lots of room to add photos and I will have several additions things that you can add.

Each of the above sections opens again. 
The top sections pull down and has space on both sides for your photos. 
The bottom one fold down and provide more spaces!
The one on the right has a pocket to slide in a small keepsake like a ticket. 

I still have some more work to do on this but I will need to know if you would like to make one by next Monday. This is the next project and I will start cutting the pieces on Tuesday. 
I will have a completed one for you to look at on Monday at the Stamp Along.

Lots of choices

Same fall scene in both of these but the cards are totally different. 
Which one do you like best?
Sure, you can make both of them if you would like. 

These two are the same up to the frame you choose to use.
Yes, I found parts left from other projects. 
There comes a time to use the parts and move them out! 
This was a good place to use them. 
This is such a beautiful set! I am sure that it is the one that I will use for my Christmas cards this year when I get around to making them. 
There will be one more using this same set at the SA. Maybe you will get a picture of it tomorrow. 

There will also be this choice of a New Year card for those of us the just don't get the Christmas ones finished in time to send. 
This one, also, will have choices. It is stunning in different colors. I will have several different colors available for you to choose. 

Here is one for those of you that like the putzy stuff. 
The cutting is so easy because of all the framelits. Just stamp them and run them through the Big Shot. Don't forget your dimensionals! They look so cute when they are raised off the card.

This one is quick and easy if you need a birthday card.
These little critters are so cute! 

Hope to see you on Monday! 
The hostess code for ordering this time is
Thank you to everyone that places orders. I can't do this without you!

November Stamp Along

Another month has slipped away! 
Again, I have done many fun things but blogging wasn't one of them. 
But you already knew that! Right?
I have been getting some cards ready for the Stamp Along though.

Tis the season to be thankful! 
This is such a pretty script that I did this simple card for Thanksgiving. 
This is from the Six Sayings hostess set in the Holiday catalog. 
The pretty embossed border hardly shows up on the photo and the colors are off also! They are Delightful Dijon and Tangelo Twist. 

Sometimes it is nice just to say Thank You so I did some with the Layered Letters Alphabet on the same colors. The script sure does make a big difference! 

Of course there will be some Christmas cards available for you to make. 
Do you have your Christmas cards all made and ready to send? 

I finally used those antlers from the Wonderland set! 
I love the way it makes it look like the deer is peeking out of the forest. 

This is one that has a little "extra" to it. There are two inside pages and a different cut to the card. 
This is the front.

Here is the first opening. 

You will have to come to the Stamp Along next Monday to see the next opening! 
If you can't come but really want to see this card, place a $50 order on line (or send it to me by email) and I will send you one! 
If you are ordering on line please use the hostess code 
which will link your order to the SA order but send it directly to you. 
This code will only be good until 8 PM on Nov 9, 2015.
Thank you to all who order! I appreciate you so much! 
Have you been enjoying the little gift in with your order the last few months? 
Just wondering. 
Thanks for stopping by.
