3D Star Workshop

A star is the perfect addition to your holiday decorations! You can choose to decorate your star for the holidays or even for everyday use.  What a fabulous homemade gift they make too.

There are so many designs to choose from. These are two of my samples but I have lots more to show you!

The star workshop includes the My Creations Star, a 12" white chipboard 3D star perfect for hanging, enough papers to cover the star and lots of accessories to make it sparkle!  

This workshop will run until the end of January.  Cost: $20, step-by-step guidance included!

Christmas Pear & Partridge Workshop

Sign up now! This workshop always fills up fast! The layout featured in this year's Christmas workshop uses one of the most beautiful CTMH Christmas paper packets of all time, Pear & Partridge.  I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this paper!!!  For just $30 your kit will contain the entire Pear & Partridge Level 2 Paper Packet (valued at $9.95), Pear & Partridge Velvet Rub-ons (valued at 4.95), Red and green sparkles and adhesive to complete the two 12x12 pages shown below.  You will also have access to my stamps, inks, tools and, best-of-all, ME :) leading you through every step of the way.  No guess work involved!  I will even cut the paper for you if this is your first workshop with me.  The cozy, quilted arrangement of the B&T papers reminds me of my favorite warm quilts that I love to take out in the winter. And, of course, I always think about hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies that my son and I set aside especially for that extra special guest :)

Bring at least four 4x6 photos with you to complete this layout at the workshop or you can wait and insert this year's holiday photos afterwards.  Make sure the photos are in the same direction as the ones shown below.  I will teach you the techniques of heat embosssing as well as layering the stamped images, rub-ons and sparkles to really make this layout shine! 

After the workshop, you will have enough supplies in your kit to also complete a layout similar to the bonus layout shown below. 

Plus, with a few additional supplies, you can also create these stunning holiday ornaments to use as tags on a gift or to adorn your own Christmas tree.   Contact me for more information on these Dimensional Element Ornaments.    The Red Glitz Glitter Gel is the best part of these, especially when the tree lights hit them! And what a cool project these would be for the kids to complete!

HO HO HO :)  I can hardly wait to get into the holiday spirit with you! Contact me today at to sign up for this workshop.  My November dates are almost full so don't delay!  December and January dates are filling now. 

In my January workshop I will be featuring the My Creations Star.  For only $20 I will help you make a star you will want to display all year round.  Oh starry night this one's going to shine bright! Check back soon for a separate post on this class and lots of samples for you to choose from. 

My Thanksgiving layout is also coming soon!  I am especially thankful this year that most of my friends and family are now with power, heat and hot water.  Thank you so much to all of the many workers that helped to make that possible.  To those still without power and whose lives have been affected by the storm, my prayers are with you.  May God bless you and continue to watch over us all.

Happy Crafting! :)
