Scrappy Girls

Taught the Herringbone technique at Stamp Class tonight - the girls LOVED it!!  It's so much fun to teach something so simple but impressive :)  While my customer/friends were busy with their creations, I enjoyed listening to them chat and catch up, and did a little creating myself :)  The three girls in class tonight are neighbors & friends of mine - two still actively teaching in the district, and one retired.  It was great to hear them laugh together as they designed their Herringbone card fronts and of course, I get a kick out of hearing the teachers' point of view about our kids and schools ;)

Here are a couple of cards I made tonight.  The girls skipped out on me before I could break out the camera (I think they're getting wise to me!!!).  Since the focus was on using up DSP scraps, the papers we used are now retired.  I'm still having trouble with my photography <scowl>.  Not sure why these are a little blurry:

I love the new Scalloped Tulle ribbon.  Even for an all-thumbs knucklehead like me, it's so forgiving.  Notice how on the top card, I scrunched it together for a more elegant look, while on the bottom card, it's more spread out and soft.  Super-cool, right??

Before my girls showed up, I took a few minutes (literally - these only took about 15 minutes to whip up!!) and made them some treats using the Ghoulish Googlies bundle from the Holiday catalog:

I pulled out my Candy Wrapper die (which I ALWAYS forget I have!!), cut a bit of the new Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, stamped the images from Googly Ghouls onto some tags from the Ghoulish Googlies bundle, added the googly eyes, and filled them with some hard candies.  Seriously took me less than no time!  Aren't they cute????

The Ghoulish Googlies bundle is a STEAL at $20.95 for wood mount, or $16.95 for clear mount.  You get the Googly Ghouls stamp set, and a kit containing a BUNCH of precut tags, glassine bags, the googly eyes, and some limited edition Pumpkin Pie Baker's Twine - plenty of goodies to make a BUNCH of treats.  Call or email me to order yours now!  It'll be positively gruesome if you don't get your hands on a set ;)  . . . and I just KNOW you want some of that scrumptious Tulle!

Well, I'd better head to bed.  ACLS training all weekend (bleah - hate when work cuts into my Saturday & Sunday!!!).

Happy stampin'!
