As promised....

Here are a couple of the cards we did last night in my One Page Wonder Class. We used a single sheet of double-sided designer paper from the Stampin' Up! collection - Raspberry Tart.

If you are interetsed in taking this class, you may comment here or email me at happilystamping@gmail.com

I hope you enjoy them.

Doors Close, Windows Open and Creativity Thrives....

I know it's been such a long time since I have posted, but hopefully I will start posting regularly now. As most of you know Dragonfly Rubber Stamps & Gifts has closed it's doors. This has been a very difficult time for me as I loved the store and all the people that I have met through it. I made wonderful friends and many of you have become like family to me. It's through your encouragement and inspiration that I am continuing to teach and design. I thank all of you for that. You may never know just how much.

Check back again this evening for a sneak peek at a One Page Wonder Class that I taught last night to some FABULOUS ladies! We had so much fun and I enjoyed designing the cards. See you later this evening! :)

One Page Wonderful...

While at Winterfest I taught one of my One Page Wonder classes. This is where we take one double-sided 12x12 printed paper, some coordinating cardstock, a few stamps and a couple of ink pads and create anywhere from 8 to 12 cards.

For this class I created the eight cards below using paper from KaiserCraft, Versafine Onyx Black Inkpad, Adirondack Stream Inkpad, the Cuttlebug and embellishments.

The ladies seemed to love the class...I hope you enjoy the cards as well.

When All The Pieces Fit...

you have ART....

While at Winterfest we completed our Puzzle Exchange. There were twelve of us that participated and each one of us took a puzzle home in our chosen theme. I decided to go with a color theme - turquoise, black & white. All of us completed two pieces of each theme. Other themes included London, Old Time Photos, Flowers, Medallions, Vintage Halloween, Water, Woodlands, Lime & Turquoise, Christmas, Under the Sea and Eyes. Each puzzle turned out beautifully and showed the diversity of the artists. I look forward to doing it again next year. I already have my theme picked out! :)

Is it morning already....do I have to go to school today, Mom??? Please can I stay home and sleep???.......I did not want to wake up today, and I just may be taking a long nap very soon.

We had so much fun this weekend and I can't wait to share it all with you. But I am seriously sleep deprived and I want to make sure I'm not writing jibberish and uploading pictures that came with the computer instead of ones that I took while there.

I didn't take as many pictures as intended. Time flies and you are having so much fun. But thankfully Kathryn took some pictures and as soon as I can get over to her place and get them uploaded to her computer I will share those. But in the meantime, I hope to have a couple of pics uploaded later by sometime tonight. At least a couple of pictures of the puzzle exchange that William and I were a part of, and my cards from the class I took.

Okay - nap time, hopefully I will be back later with some pics....

Here it is...

Here is the peek I promised I would post of one of my other Bella Cards from the class Saturday. This card uses 'Get Wella Bella'.....poor little miss. I'm hoping that this week I will be able to post about the items that I am working on for Winterfest this weekend in Ohio. I'm teaching one of my 'One Page Wonder' classes and have several puzzle pieces to finish for our puzzle exchange. Not to mention pack everything I need to create with and probably should pack some clothes and personal items....how many days do I have??

Beautiful Bellas...

I had eight beautiful Bellas in my class today! I hope all of you enjoyed the cards that we made as well as the portfolio. I had intentions of posting the full cards here tonight, but it seems that there is enough interest for a second class, so that will have to wait. We have scheduled a repeat class for Sunday, January 25th at 1:00. Maybe tomorrow I will post a little peek of one of the other cards.

I'm not sure how it happened, considering I didn't make any of the cards today, but I seem to have come home adorned in glitter. I'm sure all of you are completely surprised to hear this! :)

Thank you ladies for taking the class. I had a wonderful time, as always!
