June Class Card Sneak Peek

I finally had some time to work on a sample for my upcoming class. The classes will be held on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday June 13. I will be making 25 kits and space will be reserved on a first come, first served basis via emailing me. The class fee is $20 and will include all materials needed to complete the projects. "Kits to go" can be ordered as well and I will do all of the stamping, cutting, etc. for you. The fee for kits to go is $30 (also includes the postage). Fee for SU demonstrators is $10. You can bring your payment to class.
This class will be focused on baby cards. We will be making 2 baby girl cards and 2 baby boy cards and 1 pink, 1 blue gift bag. Not sure if I'll have time to do something else...thinking about that bonus project so I'll surprise you!
Here is the sample of the baby boy shaker card. We will be using my favorite baby set called Nursery Necessities and I was sad to find out that this set is on the Last Chance list!! If you love this set as much as I do, and you do not own it yet, don't wait to order it because once it's gone, it's gone!
I used the circle scallop sizzix die to cut the window for the shaker. Other supplies used: bashful blue taffeta ribbon. The card we will be making will use the bashful blue satin ribbon. Also, we will be using blue beads from the bead duo set. I improvised for this sample and used the chunky glitter. I didn't care for it too much because the glitter sticks to the acetate window. See the glitter? Not too happy with the glitter (sad face)...
Here's the inside.
Just wanted to mention that if the idea of you joining my SU group and becoming a demonstrator sounds like something you might want to do, Stampin' Up! is offering a mini kit for only $99! What a deal! Once you join, you'll be able to order some of the new products immediately that SU has allowed demonstrators to pre-order like all of the new cardstock (including the in colors!). Also some new stamp sets and a new punch and embossing folder and more! Interested in joining?? Email me for details!!
Just thought I would share this cute photo of Mochiko that I snapped the other morning. She looked so sweet sleeping on the couch, I couldn't resist taking yet another photo...we have tons of photos of her!
Finally, had to share with you some beautiful tomatoes that Dad planted in his garden. He amazes me, at 90, still gardening. A little slower, but he's still got it in him!
Sorry for such a long post today...thanks for bearing with me! Almost the end of the week...hope you are having a good week...thanks for stopping in today!

TFS all of your pics today, Teri. You're sure saving a ton of $$ by having your dad plant those tomatos and they're fresh from the garden - so expensive in the store.
