Good morning all!!! Sorry, I meant to share this with you yesterday but I was feeling pretty bad as it seems I have yet another sinus infection...uggghh.......I think living in CA is going to kill me, LOL!!!! But, better late than never, right?? This is the canvas that we made in my canvas class last week - I have to say, this is one of my most popular classes and one of my favorite to teach!! I just love that when we are done, everyone has something they can hang up on their wall and enjoy! I have several of these on my walls in my home and I still smile when I walk by them and often stop and look at them all over again since they always remind me of fun family moments! Each person gets to pick their own colors from several neutral ones that I have availalble so although the layout is the same, they all turn out looking quite different! For my class sample, I chose to use pics of Tyler from our houseboat vacation last summer - something about these pictures really gets to me. I just love them!! We also used To the Nines designer series paper as it has wonderful base colors to choose from. The letters are from the alphabet stamp set called Lovely Letters and they really are! And, we stamped them on tags we punched out using both the large and small tag punches - love them! We also used the stamp set called a Sense of Time; the clock was stamped in Versamark then embossed with gold embossing powder and cut out.
Here is a closer view so you can see how pretty the embossing looks - it has such a great shine to it and the details of the stamp really stand out! And, we added some of the cogs from our new cogs punch which can be found in the Summer Mini; such a fun punch! The chocolate chip wide satin ribbon is soooo yummy and looks really good with these colors and then we accented them with some Old Olive Taffetta ribbon as well. This is where the sentiment is also attached.
The sentiment was actually handwritten on some card stock that was punched out using the designer label punch and mounted using one of the pretty pieces from the Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware - here is a closeup so you can see it a little better! This is a super fun project and is a WOW everytime! I am actually teaching this class again this Friday night so if anyone from the local area is interested, I do have three seats still available and would love to have you join us!! Just contact me via email or phone and I will get you all set up! So, now I am off to run some errands, have lunch with a friend, and then back home to prep for Club and classes later on this week! I hope you all have a fabulous day and thanks soooo much for stopping by, I love that you do!
