Well it's the end of Oct. and everyone is turning their thoughts to the holidays and making Christmas Cards. This is one of my most popular classes of the year. I won't do another class until the end of Jan. so everyone is wanting to have some fun before the Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations take over their lives. We will have our annual Christmas party and enjoy refreshments with our stamping friends. If you would like to join this class please visit my website We will be working with Copic Markers on two of the cards. First the village card so everyone can get and idea of how the makers work and coloring in small areas.
This stamp set is by Darcie's and features a variety of buildings, little people and words. Next will be a Santa card and the stamp is made by Art Gone Wild! This will be a chance to learn how to color and shade using Copic markers.
Then for fun we will do a folded star Christmas card. Folded cards were so big at the Stampaway USA Convention this past summer in Cincinnati so I decided to add this card to my Christmas class.
Take some time to make your own Christmas cards it's so much fun!

Well I have returned from Cincinnati and the Stampaway USA convention as well as teaching my stampscapes classes in Centerville, Ohio at Marco's Paper. I had a wonderful time teaching and learning. Best convention yet! It was a pleasure to teach and work with the folks at Marco's and I hope to return in the spring of 2013. As for my classes they were all great except one. I will just say the teachers had no respect for the people they were teaching! I took Tim Holtz class and made a beautiful journal using techniques I already knew and watched him sign autographs. I did not get his autograph, but I can now say I have taken his class! Northwoods Men's card class was great as always. Pat is a very good teacher! Stamp the Night Away was a lot of fun. Folded card class was great. Last but not least Embellishing solid stamps was really good. Watercolor class was very bad and I will leave it at that!!! If you have never been to Stampaway I would like to encourage you to attend. This was my 15th Stampaway convention and God willing I will go back next year. I am including some pictures I took at Marco's Paper and at the convention and I hope you enjoy them.

These three pictures are from my class at Marco's

I am so happy to announce I will be teaching a Stampscapes class at Marco's Papers in Centerville, Ohio July 31, 2012 during Stampaway week.  Marco's Paper is about 35 miles north of Sharonville (which is right outside of Cincinnati) where the Stampaway USA convention is being held.   Last year I wrote a post Stampaway blog in which I made the comment that I would like to teach at Stampaway.  Well this is even better because Marco's is one of my favorite stores, and I am so honored to have this opportunity to teach a class during their Stampaway celebration.   In fact I will be kicking off Stampaway week for Marco's.  If we fill up one class I may be teaching a second one on the same day.  Please contact Marco's Paper if you are interested in taking this class.  Help me fill two classes and make this event a great success.

See you at Marco's Paper in Centerville, Ohio July 31.
Marco's will also be carrying both of my DVD's

CARDS WITH A VIEW April 22, 2012 Class

This class was inspired by my students requests for window cards and a waterfall card so I have tried to deliver a variety which we will be doing April 22, 2012 at the Stables Community Center in Sevierville, TN.  I have used Spellbinders dies, Heartfelt Creations stamps, Art Gone Wild stamps and template and To Much Fun Rubber Stamps window stamp.  I am still working on the 4th card which will also be a window card.

If you would like to join us in this class please visit my website at where you can pay using your paypal account or go to our contact section to find out how to pay by check.

Here are three of the cards we are doing in this class.  The Flower Soft card is much prettier in person and the waterfall card has a different image on each panel on the front of the card.

                                                      Waterfall Birthday Card

                                                      Mystic Hideaway Window Card

 I just saw the 2012 Stampaway logo and I am a little disappointed in the design.  I was hoping for more creativity.  I do like the colors they chose, but I like to base my trade design on the logo every year and this one has me really scratching my head.  If any of you have any ideas on what you would do in the way of a artist trading card please leave a comment.  I like the idea of a giant rubber stamp and a play on there 20th year.  I do have a stamp with the skyline of Cincinnati on it that I purchased from DP Artworks and those are the only ideas I have at the moment.  I really would like to hear your feedback.

Stampaway is a great convention held in Cincinnati, Ohio every year.  The dates this year are Aug. 3 for the preview party and Aug. 4 for the open convention.  You can get more info about the convention by visiting there website  I am from Cincinnati so it gives me a chance to go home and visit family, get new ideas for my classes and the store where I work.
