There was a whole lot of fun going on at Papertrix, yesterday. Because I design for Cindy and the shop, she allowed Kate (another shop designer) and myself to sit in on two classes taught by Lynnette Kauffman, who is a member of the Lawn Fawn design team.
Here is a photo from the first class:And here are the cards we made in the first class. I love the googly eyes on the owl.
In the second class, Cindy joined us! Having her at the table with us was a real treat as she rarely sits down and rarely sits in on a class. I think she saw how much fun we were having and had to jump in. (Cindy, me, Kate, Emily.) You may visit Emily at her blog: We'll always have Paris.studios.
In the second class we made these cards: I love the little cottage in the Sweet Christmas card. The set has many embellishments to personalize to each person's style.
The big thrill for me was that I WON the Sweet Christmas stamp set and the Winter Fox stamps and a 6x6 package of the FaLaLa paper in a drawing. Love the Fa La La paper says 36 sheets of fun. (I apologize for the flash bounce off of the cellophane.)
I love taking classes. I always learn at least one new technique or style. In this class, I learned to give the cards more depth as in stamping the snowman's arms on the paper when the snowman stand out in front of that layer. And layer the snow and edging with stickles. Oh, how I love me some stickles! I'm certain Lynnette will be back again. Be sure and watch the Papertrix website for new classes in the new year. You may find Lynnette at her blog Netter's Notables. For more stamp sets and lots of inspiration visit Lawn Fawn. Another reason I love classes is we always have a lot of fun. Lynnette brought delicious cookies with red and green m&ms and we all created and learned and munched and exchanged blog and pinterest websites. (And admired Emily's fingernails - OPI's It's my year and exchanged hair product ideas.)
What a great day of pre-holiday fun! Thank you, Cindy.
