Sep 28 Card Class-One Sheet Wonder

If you haven't heard of the one-sheet wonder technique then you are in for a surprise. On September 28 I will host a class in which you will make ten cards featuring your own stamped designer paper. The technique: on one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock, you will use a variety of stamps and ink colours to randomly create a design. This piece of cardstock is actually a template and when you turn it over, you will have guidelines to show you where you need to cut in order to create several pieces for the cards. It's lots of fun and the results are spectacular.

For examples of what this might look like, I invite you to visit my flickr page to view fall and winter cards made with this technique.

This event is now posted.

New Video - a box to store re-inkers

I've now got quite a collection of re-inkers and I'm struggling on how best to store them. I found a box idea on YouTube for storing lipsticks and adapted it to store 10 re-inkers, perfect for one of the colour families. You may find this will also work for Stickles (glitter glue). I have a PDF for you to print if you want as well.
