Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate

Spring is coming and we must celebrate!! Although it’s a little difficult right now with all this snow on the ground. But let’s think positive.

I have a new class in the mail for you. This month we will be highlighting the adorable woodland creatures in the We Must Celebrate set.
We-Must-Celebrate-ImagesHow cute are they?! I have chosen 4 different cards featuring each one of them. You will fall in love with them! And they will be sure to bring a smile to the face of everyone who receives a card you’ve made with this set.

Here’s a little sneak peek…
Class in the Mail - March
How does it work?
You purchase the class…I pre-cut all the supplies and put together project packets and mail them to you (or arrange for pick up). Then you will receive an email with a .pdf that includes pictures and detailed instructions on how to create the 4 projects.

March Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate 
You do the stamping and these cute creatures do the celebrating!
There is minimal coloring on these cards so you will need to have something on hand. I used the Blends Markers and our Stampin’ Write Markers, but you could use whatever method you’d like. If there are additional punched or Big Shot pieces needed, they will be included in your class packet.
Your class fee includes the We Must Celebrate stamp set, a package of Linen Thread, a package of Subtles Enamel Shapes, project supplies and a PDF file. (If you do not live local, a method of postage will need to be determined. I believe expresspost is about $10.)
Clear-Mount Class fee: $55 
(The product value is $44.25, so if you would like to get a Sale-a-bration item please choose other product to get you to the $60 mark.)
Wood-Mount Class fee: $68 
(The product value is $55.25, so if you would like to get a Sale-a-bration item please choose other product to get you to the $60 mark.)

Oh, the Places You Will Go

There is a stamp from a set in the current catalogue that says “Oh, the places you will go.” With each phase of life, I am experiencing that exact saying on so many different levels. For me, this saying doesn’t just refer to the physical places I will go, but also the emotional and spiritual places along this journey… Life is definitely a journey.

It has been a while since I have posted anything, and that’s simply because I have been going places! :) The last 6 months have brought many changes to our family. Our second daughter Samantha moved to Australia, our oldest daughter had a baby boy (making us grandparents for the first time), and Edgar and I traveled across the world to go visit Samantha and her husband Richie (a super big achievement for this mama who doesn’t like to fly). And this weekend, our “baby” Aaron just turned 20! Honestly, it’s sometimes a lot to process.

Here is an updated picture of Huxley Gordon who just turned 3 months. The happiest baby you will ever meet.Huxley Gordon 12We recently returned home from our visit with Samantha and Richie.
