HAPPY MONDAY!!

Good Monday mornin' all!!! I had a great weekend stamping, stamping, and oh, stamping - lol!! I am getting ready for some classes I have coming up and I really want to WOW! them without overwhelming them - not always easy to do, but I think I did it! These are all gals I don't know so I am kind of going in blind - hey, I like a challenge though - LOL! So, here is one of the cards I am doing for the Card Class....hey, fellow demos, how much do you $$$ for a card class with six cards? Just wondering....anyway, here is my card - let me know what you think!
I hope it's not too boring, I was trying for simple but pretty! And, I used my favorite Summer Picnic Dp again, I just love it and I am soooo happy it is in the catty - whoohoo!!!! Also, I STILL have not received my order from the 11th - it is not even shipped yet *sniff* so I am really running low on dp! So, this morning I am off to weight watchers and then back home to get ready for my Chipboard class - must come up with something fabulous!! So, think happy thoughts for me as I go step on the scale - Uggghhhh!!!! I am leaving you now with the recipe, and off I go! Toodles!

Papers - Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue, Whisper White card stock, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper

Lovely card. I am not a SU demo or any demo for that matter, but my SU lady charges 15 bucks for 10 cards. She does all the cutting, putting together everything we need before hand. HTH.

If you are doing a lot of cutting and using a lot of paper, ribbon & embellies on the cards I would say between $12-$15, if you are serving snacks and drinks I would say $15, you need to be paid for your time preparing, cost of materials & snacks. You can't buy 6 cards for $15
I wasn't sure if I was going to stay a demo so I didn't pre-order any catalogs, then I went home, they are on their way LOL

Personally I don't think one has to have lots of layers and do dads to be a terrific card! The simplicity of a card is so eye pleasing, as is this wonderful card Alex! The SU! gal I went to a few times charged $10.00 for 5 or 6 cards, I forget. It was reasonable and fun! Hope your weigh is was a success! You go girl! Hugs, Deb

They will love this card Alex! It is hard to pick a card for a class when you don't know the gals/guys but I think you chose very well. I do my card camps 5 for 10.00. I have been told, by the gals that attend, that they would still come if I raise my price because the cards are so worth it but I think for now I'll leave it. Some of the gals in my area are charging 15.00 for 5 cards which is still pretty reasonable.

Love this card....definately a wowzer without overwhelming !!! Love it !!!

Nikki Bond said...

Beautiful card Alex! I'm not sure what to charge for 6 but I know I charged $12 for 10 cards...so about $1 and change per card....depends on how much CS and embellishments are on each. Hope that helps! Have FUN! {SMILES}

I hope your weigh-in went well! This card is gorgeous! I think it's perfect! Pretty and very effective for a class!

Marilyn said...

Love this card - it is simple, but really awesome!! They're gonna love it!! I usually charge on average 1-2 $$ per card, depending on layers and cost to make the card.

Melissa said...

Cute card, Alex!

BTW, it's not SU! but at the store I charge $12 for a 4-card class. When I did stamp camps as a demo I usually charged $15 for 4 cards.
