Labour of Love

Our daughter got engaged last October and as many of you know when your daughter gets married and the family is handy there is opportunity to make a lot of things. Well we started talking about the invitation and 8 months later the final product was complete. It is 8 pages of information, pictures, verses, reply cards, registry and menu. I don't think either one of us anticipated how long it would take or we never would have started out with them but we were very pleased with the end result and the response to the invitations has been phenomenal. No matter where we go or who we meet someone mentions that they have seen the invitation. Watch for the next post I will include a picture of some of the inside pages.

In a recent catalogue Stampin Up came out with a Gift Box Punch Board (item 135863 $24.95) and this week I thought I would play around with it and see what kind of boxes it made. I was thrilled to see the end result and amazed at the possibilities using this handy too. We have a wedding in the family this year so I can see many uses for the new Punch Board. Pictured below are three of the sixteen sizes this Punch Board makes. We will be having a class at the Hanover Public Library on April 15 and here at the studio on Friday April 17 making one of these boxes as well as a couple of spring cards. Watch for further news and pictures on that class.

Colour is Everything

Last night Karen hosted a Stampin Up workshop here in my studio. She warned me before the workshop that I had better wear something green to celebrate St. Patricks Day. So just before she came I put on my green scarf and then the guests started to arrive. Some of the guests remembered to wear a smattering of green others did not but the most amazing thing was that Karen not only wore green in her ensemble she also brought green refreshments! Look at the amazing cake, the candy and the green drinks! Her scarf, her watch, her ring, all matched the look she had going too. Well done Karen, what a hoot!

Upcoming Class

March is almost here and I am in denial, where did February go? I love the winter months when all is quiet and we can spend guilt free time making projects and staying indoors. I love winter for the outdoor activities too when we can bundle up and head outdoors to defy the elements. Today I have a card idea for you that we will be making in a new Card Class I have created taking place on Saturday afternoon March 28th. Everyone will be getting a Bundle valued at $75 and you will be making the cards featured here in the next couple of weeks. Today's card is a version of one I saw at I hope you like it. Watch for more samples here.

This past weekend we went to my brothers cottage and bundled up for one of those outdoor activities I was talking about above. What a lot of fun we had cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The funniest part of all was trying to get on top of the snow bank pictured here and all of us falling in a domino effect when one of us lost our balance.

And finally here are this weeks Weekly Deals, check them out!

Library Class Fun

Together, a bunch of us have been meeting at the Hanover Public Library for quite a few years, we have a steady faithful group that gets together every third Wednesday of the month for most of the year. Sometimes not everyone can make it and sometimes we have new students and sometimes students take a break to attend to other things in their lives but for the most part we are group that has been together for a long time. Last night I asked the group if I could take a picture of them so that I could share the fun times we have when we are together. If you would like to join us we would love to have you. We meet for two hours and I have all the items in a kit for you so you can have the fun of making the card projects. The girls are holding up some of the card creations they are working on or have completed. See those smiling faces?
