The new Occasions Catalog starts January 3rd! If you haven't received your copy and are in the Saskatoon area and would like one, be sure to contact me and we'll connect.
There are several wonderful simply created kits in the Occasions Catalog, and the Burlap & Blooms Wreath Kit caught my eye in particular, and I know that in January once the Christmas decorations are down I'm going to want to start thinking of new décor items, and maybe even spring, so I've ordered myself a kit and will be making it in January. As several of you have asked for a January event for us to get together, I thought I'd invite you to join me....
I will hold a Burlap & Blooms Wreath class on January 16th, 2014 at 7pm. If you'd like to attend, you will need to rsvp to me no later than January 2nd so I can order enough kits for everyone. If at all possible, I'd like to collect the class fee at that time, but if we have trouble connecting we'll work that out another way. The class fee is $27.50 (the cost of the burlap & Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit in the upcoming catalog). If you'd like to add a silicon matt (as this project is glue gun intensive) to have one in your craft supplies (I know I will be using mine that day!), just say so when you email me to register for this class. Adding the silicon matt to your kit will bring your class fee to $35 (and if you're doing the math, you will realize that I have applied a 20% discount on the silicon matt...happy new year!)
What do you need to bring to the class:
- paper snips & adhesive
- glue gun if you have one (if not we can share)
- bone folder (if not we can share)
- paper piercer if you have one (if not, we can share)
Be sure to rsvp to me by Jan 2nd if you want to come as I want to make sure your kit arrives in time!!

To make a wreath like this (and you can make one for any season...doesn't have to be Christmas...I might just have to make a spring one this year, I'm thinking;) all you need is:
- a 10-12" foam wreath
- 140 or so stick pins
- 6 sheets of double sided patterned designer series paper (cut into half inch strips)
- a bone folder (to curl each of the strips of dsp into ringlets)
- about 1.5 - 2 hrs to play & create:)

Whether you use the Pretty Presents gift bows kit that's available in the holiday catalog or the new bows bigz die, also in the holiday catalog, these bows certainly make pretty impression on your parcels. As I was wrapping gifts this past weekend, I had so much fun making and adorning coordinating bows and tags:)

This weekend I looked at the scrap pile from all the cards, gifts and packaging I have been making and I turned those scraps into gift tags...we all need to replenish our gift tags this time of year...and I also made the little envelop box above to store the gift tags in. Leave me a comment if you'd like the dimensions and I'll add them, but it was simply made with the envelop punch board (*my new favourite tool!) and some left over snowflakes I'd made with the Festive Flurries bundle...simple! The tags pictures above are just a few that I made this weekend based on the stamps at hand...the Ornament stamps were stamped in versamark and embossed in white...the gold ones come from the ornament and last year's single snowflake stamp, embossed in gold...a little paper ribbon & dsp and voila...all kinds of tags:)

Do you ever have that happen, by the time you finish making a card for a friend, it doesn't fit into an ordinary envelope? That's why I love the envelope punch board...I made the coordinating envelope box for the card above in it:)
Today's card is a birthday card for a fabulous woman. I took the pictures in the evening so I'm sorry the lighting doesn't lend itself to a good image. I used the From My Heart stamp set for the main image and created several layers with it, cutting out the main piece with the apothecary accents framelits. I also used some Soho Subway DSP (and a bit of Modern Medley DSP too) and some of the in color ruffled trim & embellishments. The bow is made from crumbcake taffeta and a vintage button.
