Class Crazy

I have so many class ideas and not enough time to do them so I thought I would do a poll and see what classes you (my wonderful customers) would be most interested in.  I really need your help with this so please participate.  To make it a little more fun I’ve decided to add an incentive.  I just love our new Mini Catalog so I’m going to give you your choice of Stamp Set from the Mini Catalog for 1/2 price.

Here’s what you need to do.  Vote on your favorite Classes.  You can choose as many as you would like.  You can also add in one that you’d like to see.  Then vote on the best days for classes.  Once you have voted go to the comments section and add your name and e-mail address. 

I will keep this poll open until the end of September.  I will also keep it at the top of my blog so remember to scroll down for new posts.  I will draw a winner the first week of October.  You will be notified by e-mail as well as posted on my site.  Good luck and thanks for your help. 

You can see more information about each class underneath the poll.

Here is a description of what types of this will be included in the classes.  Actual projects and costs will be determined after I choose the classes.  I’ve included pictures if I had one.

I made this card at several parties and other events this holiday season.  I thought it was really fun.  I actually put the rub-on on vellum paper and turned it backwards so the rub-on faced my real red paper. 

merry-card-rub-onsRub-ons are so great and easy to use.  On thing to be carefull of is that you keep the backer pieces with them.  It is very easy to let them slip and then your rub-on gets stuck to somthing and ruined.

When I use my rub-ons I cut out just the part I want with scissors.  That way I don’t accidentally press some of the other rub-ons onto my excess paper.  If possible only cut the front page and leave the back protection page.  I’ve found it’s easier to keep your rub-ons together if the back piece is full.  If necessary you can attach the two un-used pieces together with a paper clip.

Once you have decided which rub-on to use gently and carefully place it over your desired paper.  Make sure it is where you want it before you press it down.  Then lightly rub over it.  Use your Popsicle stick to rub over each part. I’ve found that it’s easiest to start in the center and work my way out.  Be careful of the edges if you go to fast you can catch them and rip back the rub-on. 

Carefully pull up the rub-on on one side making sure that each piece is completely down.  If a part isn’t stuck just lay it back down and rub over it again until it’s stuck.  Then remove your paper and your done.

I love rub-ons because they can go on any smooth surface.  I’ve put them on Glass, Plastic, Paper and more.  You can even put them right on the picture its self.

The other fun part of this card is hard to see.  The square frame is covered in whisper white craft ink and then left to dry.  Once dry I covered it with a thin layer of tombow multipurpose glue then sprinkled on dazzling diamonds glitter.  It really makes the card sparkle.  This is the same technique Stampin’ Up! uses in the Country Living Ornament Collection.

So go ahead and try one of our great rub-ons today.
