Lesson 39 Black Magic Trendy Trees

I have always loved the simplicity of the Trendy Trees Stamp Set. I know that quite a few of you have had it sitting in your collection for quite some time so dust it off and let's get this party started.

For those who love learning a new technique I have been dabbling with Black Magic (the technique that is). I suppose I was underwhelmed with what I had seen but after a lot of experimenting I am now satisfied that I'm ready to share some great designs.

I have gone completely mad with my flower making. The new wool felt is such a delight to use. After some experimentation I have come up with a new design and if you are like me (concrete and ordered) you will love them. I have kits for $5 or I'll make one for you for $10.

Dates for lesson 39 are August 2, 3, 7, 9, 10

Don't forget that the new Stampin' Up Catalogue goes live Sept 1. Do you want a copy?

Lesson 38 Neverending Printed Petals

During the month of July you can get a free Ice Cream Parlour Ribbon and Button Pack for every $100 spent with Stampin' Up. I decided to incorporate this into the lesson. The stamp set used is called Printed Petals ($34.95 wood, $27.95 clear).

For those who love a technique I will be revising the Baby Wipe Technique.

Construction fans will really enjoy the Neverending Cards.

And for those who enjoyed making and or wearing the fabric flowers we will be making them in felt.

Lesson dates are July 17, 19, 20, 26 and 27.
