Technique Tuesday class

November 9, 2011

Have you missed Technique Tuesday?  This class is held on the last Tuesday of every month.  Details can be found here.

In a recent class we learned the Wax Paper Emboss Resist technique.  What a fun one!  The featured project uses the Polar Party stamp set, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke paper & ink and the new Dazzling Details glitter glue.  WOW it’s much more sparkly in person!  You can see the Wax Paper Emboss resist on the four panels.  We used the Snow Burst embossing folder to create the resist pattern.


Christmas Tags

December 29, 2009

My favorite Christmas project this year was a box of gift tags.  It was  inspired by a similar project in the 2009 – 2010 Idea Book and Catalog.  I used the Christmas Punch hostess set for the tags.

Fill the box with tags, fudge or other baked goods for a quick and easy gift!  This gift box can be used for many occasions all year long by simply changing the colors and contents!
