Denami Sketch challenge & new kits at Simply Scrapbooks

Wow! What a weekend...Friday night, I decided to work on a card for Denami's latest challenge and lets just say it went from there. First, the challenge card:
And from there, I just couldn't seem to stop. I loved the doodlebug black dot paper, paired with gold, and the Denami daisy stamps....I came up with a 3 card set:

And why stop there...It has been months since I've designed a Cricut card kit and I was thinking about a children's card kit. One that would be great for a mom to make and tuck in a lunch box. I used Create a Critter to design this kit.
And finally...I went back to the black doodle bug dot but paired it with hot pink this time for a second Cricut kit. Both kits will be available at Simply this week.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

At least it is in the world of paper crafting...I went to Simply yesterday at 10 am to teach my class and I think it was a hit. Before the class was even over, I had bought 3 more Holly Berry House stamps and was designing my next one. You gotta love card makers! 7 of the talented ladies from yesterday's class signed up for the next one before they had even seen the cards. I think they will be happy.
The class is scheduled from 1-4pm on Sunday, November 7th and will probably sell out. Sign up early! 30 spots available and the cost is $20. Vicki is also pre-ordering the Holly Berry House stamps..we sold out of several designs used in class within minutes.

Pink, Black, & White

This is the latest color challenge by Denami Designs and also my personal theme over the last month...well actually the theme of my daughter's 7th birthday slumber party. 9 very well-behaved and giggly girls invaded our house last Saturday and I SURVIVED!
It was so much fun preparing everything for her party. Here are just a few of the things I've been working on the past month. I used the Denami buttons to make the adorable "calorie free" cupcake decoration-Thanks to Nami's inspiration at Stamp Away. So cute and it's only buttons, pins, and a foam ball. I never did find the time to make a card for the theme challenge this week (wonder why...hmmmm) but did use the Denami Daisy and polka dot stamps to make the favor bucket for the girls. We filled them with Silly Bandz.
And no, as talented as some of you think I am, I did NOT make the cake! I had to include it in the post because it is absolutely adorable.
With the birthday party of the year done, hopefully, I can find the time to design cards and classes again. Imagine that!
