Hallet Bag Class

Here is the Hallet Bag I created while instructing the Hallet Bag Class this past Saturday.  

I used retired designer series papers to make these and each bag includes four coordinating cards.   

And, lastly, here is the bag with the four cards inside:

I still have three kits, using the Black and Very Vanilla colors shown here. 

If you are interested in learning how to make these cute bags, schedule your class today!

Explosion Scrapbooks

Here is the scrapbook I made when instructing the Explosion Scrapbook Class held on Wednesday, last week.  

The belly band is blank so the person can either add a photo or the person's name to the front.  I also left the four white panels alone so if you wanted to, you can make these into journalling spots or even add a photo frame like I do with the baby Explosion books.

This is for sale so if you'd like to purchase it, simply email me and I will send you an invoice with shipping information.

You can also visit my Crafts for Sale page, http://desireescraftroom.blogspot.com/p/crafts-for-sale.html, and I will combine shipping!

All of these kits are retired and I only have a limited number of them.  If you have ever used a scrappin' kit for cards - you know that you can get 40 cards or more per kit.  These are all "new," never opened.  I'm attaching photos from the catalogs so you can see the variety of papers, stickers, and cardstock that are included in each kit.  

Not sure if you want it?  Let me know and I'll bring them into the Branson Mill so you can see them.  Keep in mind that I won't open the packages.

Last Week's Classes

Well, I had fun this past week working with Kathy and Jill.  Jill came in for the Valentine Special and made the cute Lady Bug Curvy Keepsake Box and the Cross Hershey Bar Wrap in lieu of a Valentine card.

Kathy came in for the Paper Pumpkin Class and learned about all the supplies and extra items that are included in a Paper Pumpkin Kit.  If you would like to learn more about Paper Pumpkin, be sure to stop in and see me!

Then on Saturday, Kathy came back in for the free Punch Party.  I showed her a variety of ways to use the different punches and how use accents on cards and bookmarks.

You, too, can come in tomorrow, Tuesday, for another Free Punch Party, starting at 12:30 and we will finish up around 3:30 so I have time to clean up and put punches away!

On Wednesday, I'm hosting a 6 X 6 Scrapbook OR an Explosion Scrapbook class.  Pick one or the other (I have both cut!) for only $19.99.  A tutorial will be provided for either scrapbook.

And lastly, on Saturday, I'm hosting a gift bag I call the Hallet Bag after a fellow demonstrator, Carolyn, designed.  We'll be making four coordinating cards to go inside the bag as well. This class is $29.99 and tutorial is provided for the bag.

I'll be on vacation from March 3rd-10th, visiting my grandsons in Florida.  Hopefully I'll come home with lots of inspiration for different crafts!

I will also have some paper scraps available should you forget to bring your own!  These are just a few that I will have out for you to use.  This class will be repeated one more time on February 21st.

Paper Pumpkin Card Class

Tomorrow, I'm hosting a Paper Pumpkin Card class using August 2014's kit.  Here's a Stampin' Up! video for you to preview.  I have a Paper Pumpkin Pinterest Board that offers a variety of ideas of how to use each month's kit so you don't have to follow the suggested instructions.  

Paper Pumpkin kits, once you sign up, come once a month. Here is where you can find more information about Paper Pumpkin.  You have until the 9th of the month to opt out getting that month's kit.  All supplies are included to complete the project -- they are not always cards.  You will need your favorite pair of scissors, mine are paper snips from Stampin' Up! and a clear block.  A clear block is included in your first Paper Pumpkin kit.  

I hope you will be able to come out tomorrow and join me so you can learn more information about our Paper Pumpkin kits and how much fun they can be!
