Acorny Thank You & Thankful Forest Friends!

Give Thanks
This is another card for my upcoming Card Buffet class. Class participants can choose which cards they would like to make and how many of each.

I love the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper because not only is it pretty paper but it coordinates so well with the Acorny Thank You and the Thankful Forest Friends stamp sets.

Speaking of Stamp Sets make sure to check back on Monday because all Stamp Sets from any of the catalogs will be ON SALE 15% off! More details on Monday so make sure to check back. While you wait for Monday start making up your wish list and remember Christmas is coming. 🙂

Today’s card base is Early Espresso and a little Daffodil Delight and Into the Woods DSP.

I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the sentiment and matted it onto an Early Espresso Deco Label Framelit.

A piece of Frayed Burlap Ribbon tied in a bow and attached with a glue dot.

Also I’ve had quite a few emails regarding my last Live Event. Below is the question most asked and then my explanation.

Will you be putting the video up on YouTube again and giving out the password for the PDF files for the Tent Topper with a twist cards?

I posted the class last month on YouTube as well as giving away the Password to unlock the PDF files and videos on my blog for 2 reasons.

#1 to promote my new Photo Gallery on my blog and have everyone try it out to see how it works.
#2 to show my appreciation to those who place orders and tune in to my live events.

When the new catalogs come out I host an Open House and offer free make and takes and show different tips and techniques for my local customer’s. I wanted to find a way to do this with my Online customers as well so this was my way of doing that.

I’m not sure if I will do this type of event quarterly or possibly twice a year.

It does take a lot of time and even money to prep, prepare, and hold the live events; not only my time but my husband’s as well. I cannot afford to give everything away every month; my stamping business needs to sustain itself as that is the agreement my husband and I had when I became a demonstrator that I would or could not use household income to purchase my stamping supplies.

I hope you understand my position and understand that I can’t always give away my time and ideas.

My Tuesday’s Tips & Techniques videos are free every Tuesday and are also on YouTube. As well as my daily blog post and sometimes the directions are given for cards as well and you can find them in the photo gallery.

Thanks for checking out my blog and the Live Events; your orders are greatly appreciated.
