Love of Leaves Class To Go

Crisp Autumn leaves, cool breezy days and cozy warm blankets- these are some of the wonderful parts of the season! The Love of Leaves Bundle from Stampin’ Up helps you recreate that feeling with watercolored images and stitched dies. In this class, you will use your bundle to create four layered cards, a Little Debbie Pumpkin Roll box and a Ghirardelli Chocolate Box.

 You will need  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede ink pads as well as Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. You will also need the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.  Adhesives used include Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Seal +, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.

 You can order ink and adhesive here or use what you already have. You can add on the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Seal + to your kit at catalog price (I pay the tax and shipping!) 

 The class kits will include six project kits and the full color step by step tutorial PDF. Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punching and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new dies.) I do not do any embossing, so you can add on the Tasteful Textile embossing folder or use what you already have. 

   This class to go has three options:

Option #1- $76

This is the full Class To Go Kit. Included are: 

  •  Love Of Leaves stamps and Dies ($47.50 value) 
  •  1 bolt Early Espresso Ribbon 1 pack of Gilded Gems (Free- an $8 savings!)

Email me for registration link.

 Option #2- $42

This is the option for those who already own the Love Of Leaves stamps and dies. You will need them to complete your projects so only choose this option if you already own the bundle.

 Option #4- $15

PDF only- want to cut your own cardstock and already own the products? This is the option for you. If you purchase the PDF Only option, you will be immediately emailed the links. If you do not receive them within five minutes of purchase, please email me! Click here to purchase just the PDF Tutorial (Seperate page.)

  All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline. This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have product on hand ready to ship. Because of this, it takes about 1 week after the deadline for me to order, cut, prepare and ship all the class kits.  Class Kits can only be mailed within the United States. If you live out of the US, you can still purchase the PDF. 

 There is no actual online class, this is just a kit that comes to your mailbox and is available to do at your convenience. The registration website will send you an email reminder around the time it is expected to arrive, but there is nothing to look for online other than the email with the PDF. 

 Registration will close on October 21st .

Expected shipping date of all kits is on or before September 28th

Freezing; Friends and my trip to Colorado!

Hello everybody! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! As many of you know, my husband tool me to Colorado for the weekend for my birthday! I'm a bit obsessed with the National Parks, so we went to Estes Park to visit Rocky mountain National Park. It was incredible! The Quaking Aspen were right at their peak and were breathtaking! 

We hiked 6 1/2 miles the first day, kind of accidentally, We decided to take an offshoot from the trail we were on and then got lost on the way back! I loved it, but hubby wasn't a fan! Ha! We were BEAT afterwards, but the scenery was worth every step!

The next day we hiked a trail called Emerald Lake trail and saw the most beautiful lakes I've ver seen in my entire life! This one was almost five miles, but easier than the day before.

The third day, we were pretty tired, so we took a long drive via the Peak to Peak Scenic Bypass. It was hand down, the prettiest drive I've ever taken! We stopped at this little creek and the aspens were just glorious! 

We also saw LOTS of Elk. My husband was so excited! 

We finished off the third day with an easy couple of walks around Estes Lake and Lily Lake. 

It was an amazing birthday weekend. It's amazing what a couple of days in the mountains can do for your soul! 

Today's card is one I made a while back, but forgot about it! I found it while I was cleaning up last week and set it aside to take a photo. Then, I promptly spilled my Diet Coke on it! ACK! But, I stick wanted to show you. It features the adorable Freezin' Fun bundle, as well as the pink plaid printed paper from the Plaid Tidings DSP pack.

Beautiful Autumn

Hello everybody! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I have another Beautiful Autumn card to share with you. In case you didn't see Friday's post, I showed three different ways to use this fun bundle. You can see all three projects here. 

This card also features the Plaid Tidings DSP, the Birch Background Stamp and the In Good Taste Elements. 

I actually CASED a card I made many years ago. I love this card and it was easy to recreate with new products. You can see the details on this old card here. 

And, I also want to say THANK YOU! You all helped me reach my goal, AND surpass it by quite a bit! With more than a week left to go!! Incredible! We filled my chart and even filled three more rows! I will be drawing for the last two Cut and Emboss Machines today on Facebook. Thank you again! You are all so good to me!
