Novembers' Blessings On Paper Class

So...Are you impressed yet?! lol! This month we are going to make these darling 12x12 plaques with a matching candle holder. I have made mine to coordinate with my living room. I am providing you with a shopping list at the end of this post for the supplies you will need so that you can make your plaque and candle holder to coordinate with either a room in your house or a holiday.

I stamped my images with versa mark and then embossed them to really make them 'pop' when illuminated. Think how adorable these would be with scripture stamps or holiday images and colors. The class supply fee includes a flameless candle too!

For embellishments, I noticed this paper had some circles within the design so I added some glittery brads to give it a little more 'pop'. Not that you can tell from my pictures! ha! I plan on hanging this in my living room with a collage of our family pictures around it.

Blessings On Paper November class will be held on Friday, November 5th at 6:30 pm. Cost for supplies is $6.00. Sign ups will begin this weekend at church OR if you know you're not going to be at church this weekend you can email or call me and I'll get you signed up. We are only getting one weekend of sign ups this time.

Your shopping list:
2-3 12 x 12 designed papers
1 sheet of either 8 1/2 x 11 OR 12 x 12 card stock for candle holder base
coordinating paint that will adhere to canvas
1 yard ribbon
Your choice of embellishments, ie; buttons, brads, glitter, ribbons, etc.
We will be providing brown and black embossing powder, if you need another color you will need to pick that up as well.

I will also have some important news to share with you this month at class. Please be preparing your hearts for that new update.

I still need a couple more ladies to share hand made Christmas gift ideas, if you have one you'd like to share please let me know ASAP!

Thanks for checking in today. Now leave me some LOVE in the form of a comment! Hugs!

Taylored Expressions October Blast From The Past Blog Hop

Whoo hoo! I am so excited to be included in this blog hop! My very first ever! And what fun it is with Taylored Expressions! I have been getting her Key Ingredients Kits for about the last 4 months and have SO enjoyed them. They are awesome and such fun to get in the mail! I am totally a fan! lol! Then when I saw her blog post about this blog hop I jumped right in on it! Yippee! I am using the CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS set and it's just beautiful. It's all about my Jesus so how could it not be right!!?? ;)

Here is the full view of my card. I love the 'Simply Jesus' sentiment. All I did was stamp the image on card stock and gave it a little Smooch. I think it has a rustic elegance about it. Hence the twine tied to the wide grosgrain. ;) I also dry embossed a frame about a 1/4" all around the card. Kinda hard to see that in the picture but it really adds something to the card.

This is my first experience using Smooch and I have to say, I like it! It has a really fine tip applicator and just gives your work that extra touch.

In this shot you get a closer look at the dry embossing I did around the edges of the card and a bit more of the Smooch!

Well I hope you liked my card and my first submission in a blog hop. I hope it's the first of many! Make sure you check out the rest of the fun examples and share some love with your comments!
