Blast from the Past…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!  Here is a blast from the past of what we did a couple of years ago that I thought I would share with you – and keep scrolling to see THIS year’s St. Patrick’s Day WALL ART BANNER….


Hi Everyone!  I just wanted to tell you how much FUN I had with everyone who put together this month’s framed insert.  Our theme was not only St. Patrick’s Day, but it was celebrating one of my granddaughter’s 6th birthday – Happy Birthday Breanna!  So, I created TWO inserts – one everyone did below, and the frame that I came up with to celebrate our family’s celebration of a birthday – to give you an idea of one way YOUR family can celebrate someone special!  Here is the MARCH framed insert that everyone did:

Now here is our personal family frame that I did for all my daughters and myself:

Notice how it looks like she is holding the balloons?  Here is a close-up of what that looks like:

Here are some pics of everyone having fun and hard at work making their frames!

Hi Everyone! Here is what we did at last month’s classes to share with you!

We made a card for St. Patrick’s day with a stamp set I’ve had like forever but never found the time to use it before:

Next was a card we made using the Build a Blossom stamp set and punch. Now is the PERFECT time to buy this stamp set and matching punch during Sale-A-Bration so you can earn a free stamp set out of the Sale-A-Bration catalog!

Then the next card was a Zindorf-inspired card that I have loved the technique of sponging.

Then I thought…. hmmmm – wonder what this would look like in BLUE – so here it is? What do YOU think?

Hope you enjoyed looking at our class projects.

Stampin Hugs!
