Spring Fling Buffet

April showers are bringing lots of flowers, at least of the crafty variety.  Come spend the day creating some fun Spring projects with your friends.

WHEN: Saturday, April 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: My house in Farmington

WHAT: Make only the projects you want and multiples of the ones you love.

RSVP: Let me know your project order by Wednesday, April 27 so I can have them cut and ready for you.  Some projects are limited on supplies and will be available to those that RSVP first.

EXTRA SPECIAL PROJECT AND OFFER: Instead of offering special incentives and discounts, this month, I am supporting one of my favorite causes and you can help!  This card is made with a new stamp set called "Strength and  Hope," that benefits breast cancer research.  The cost of this card is $2, but I will donate $1 from each card made to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

In addition, order this stamp set or anything in any shade of pink from April 28 - May 3, including at the class, I will donate my instant income to the Komen foundation.  Contact me for a complete list of products that qualify.


MINI ALBUM: Instead of a scrapbook layout this month, I am doing a CD Folder Mini Album instead. The Album is approximately 5x5 inches and is made from thin chipboard CD/Literature holders. It has six full pages, three mini pages and three pull out pages. Pictured is the Love Letters Paper. There is also an option for the Springtime Vintage Paper (paper patterns shown.) Cost: $10.

MONOGRAMMED NOTE CARDS AND MATCHING BOX: Perfect for Mother's Day or for an end of the year gift for your child's teacher. There are eight cards and envelopes and a matching pen that fit in the box. Choice of Beyond the Garden Paper (left) and Paisley Petals Paper (right). Cost: $12

TREAT PURSE: Aren't these just the cutest things ever? My friend Vicky made me one recently and I have to share them with you. They are approximately 3.5" wide by 2.5" tall. Perfect to fill with some candy or other small gift. Cost: $1.50 or 3 for $4

WATERING CAN: Also ready to fill with candy or other treats is this adorable watering can. You will use a wheel to stamp it and then cut it out and score it. (Much easier than the witch's shoe, don't worry.) Cost: $2 or 3 for $5.
DAISY MAGNETS: These fun magnets will brighten up your fridge or magnet board for Spring and Summer. Shown are Melon Mambo/Pumpkin Pie and White/So Saffron cardstock. If there is another color combo you would like, just ask. Cost: $1.00 Each

PLANE AND SIMPLE CARD: With Father's Day around the corner, I thought I should offer a couple of masculine cards. This one also has a Happy Birthday or Thank You option. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
THE OPEN SEAS CARD: A nice masculine card. This one says Happy Father's Day, but there is also an option for Happy Birthday, Happy Retirement, and Thank You. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
FLORAL MOTHER'S DAY: This card reminds me of my grandmother. She was an artist and this stamp set reminds me of something she would paint. This card is colored with blender pens and then a layer of Crystal Effects is added to the top of each flower (so it take a bit of time to dry). Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
VINTAGE MOTHER'S DAY: Not all moms like pink and purple. In fact, this card is more like something my mom would like. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
 WINDOWPANE CARD: These windowpanes are a fun embellishment. The greeting on this card can be Happy Mother's Day, Happy Birthday, Thank You, With Sympathy and others. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
 BABY WATERFALL CARD. These cards look a little tricky, but they are easy to make and fun to share. Pull on the tab and the pictures cascade. I always love a fun interactive card. :) Cost: $1.75 or 10 for $15.
WEDDING CARD: A simple card for a beautiful occasion. It is super easy to make two of these at once (as you can see from the picture.) Cost: $1.75 each or any 10 cards for $15.
GRADUATION CARD: I borrowed the idea for this card from another demonstrator, Yapha Mason. Love how simple it is and how perfect for the graduate. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
 HELLO FLOWER CARD: How about a simple Hello! There is also a Thank You Kindly option for this card. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15
THANK YOU PAISLEYS: I just love the saying on this card, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life out of what we give." I thought it would be a perfect thank you card for a special teacher in your child's life or for anyone who has touched your life. Cost: $1.75 or any 10 cards for $15.
