Preview Day 3: Sweetest Memories & Class Card Information

Good evening!

Tonight, we are showcasing Gina's new Free with Three stamp set: Sweetest Memories on our blogs. The sentiments Gina has included in this set are perfect for scrapbook pages, cards, and gifts.

I used the Large Pillow Box that Gina carries to make this gift box. Can you guess what's inside? Surprisingly enough - an adult medium T-shirt! I folded it up to have the pattern hidden and used some sentiments from both Gina's Sweetest Memories and Holiday Greetings stamp sets to decorate the belly band.

Project Details
Stamps: Holiday Greetings; Sweetest Memories
Cardstock: Basic Grey Romani dp & tag
Ink: Black Versafine
Other: Clear embossing powder; Nestability dies: scallop circle large and Labels 7; EK Success circle punches: 1/2" and 1 1/8"; SU ribbon; Bow easy; scor tape; sanding block; button

For my next sample, I was thinking of tea parties with Grandma. I paper pieced the images from Nina's Lovely Shelf stamp set on the new October Afternoon Farm Fresh patterned paper pack (that Gina will be adding to the store tomorrow night!!). I LOVE this paper!

Remember to check in tomorrow night for the big Party over in Gina's Forum on Splitcoast! We'll have tons of chatter, challenges, and contest questions as well a lots more samples from the Designers, Illustrators, and our Center Stage team members!


I also wanted to talk tonight a bit more about my Class Card Kits that will be available tomorrow night after the Release Party.

* Each of the kits are designed specifically to be a quick and easy way to build your card stash. Each kit has enough supplies to make 4 cards.
* Each card was designed to be minimal in the layers, so that extra postage shouldn't be necessary when mailing them.
* The written step by step instructions are printed out with a photo of the card sample included. I'm keeping mine in a binder - always ready to pull out for inspiration.
* All the consumable materials are included in the kit: cardstock, ribbons, embellishments, etc. The cardstock is cut to the measurements needed, except for the cards that Nestability dies are used in the sample. Then, the instructions will include alternative measurements that can be used if the student doesn't have the dies recommended.
* Class Kit cost is $9.95.
