Stampin Up Coffee Cafe ~ Quick & Easy 5 Minute Card

It’s been a while, so I wanted to make sure I started the New Year off right by getting more of my creations posted for you all!
One big change you will notice: I will always now be posting the measurements of all cardstock & pieces used on my cards! I know it’s super frustrating for me when I go to case a really cool card I found, only to not be able to recreate it  just so because my proportions or measurements are off.

So – if you like my work, and you want to recreate it, I will make it easy & fun to do so! All I ask is that you link to the original post or tag me from Facebook, Twitter or Instagram 🙂

Without further ado – here is a really cute, and easy card to whip up.  This card is great for a make & take event or if you need a card on the go.

Craft workshop & classes in New Westminster & Vancouver area

 

Are you looking for something different?  If you have ever thought about trying a new craft or hobby then I have a workshop for that.  Are you looking to improve the skills you already have? I have a workshop for that too! Join me and some friends, or meet new people

New Westminster & Fraser Valley Stampers & Papercrafters is for anyone who is creative and looking for inspiration and ideas to create handmade greeting cards & papercrafts (like party favors, post it note holders and home decor like wreaths & banners).
I especially enjoy helping people who say “I could never do that, I’m not creative.” to discover that they CAN make cards that look good. I have a “there are no mistakes in stamping” attitude that always makes for a fun environment for learning card making and papercrafting.
This group has many events to choose from hosted on various week night, and weekends, I teach card making workshops once or twice every month, and also host a “Crop & Swap” night twice a month along with other ad hoc DIY workshops like making wreaths, stamping on candles, gift boxes and other great gift ideas.

All workshops and crafting classes are currently held at my apartment in the heart of Uptown New Westminster. I am located only a few blocks away from Columbia sky train station, and there is a bus stop directly out front of the building that runs to New Westminster sky train station often.

Here is a quick overview of a few of the workshops I host.

Crop & Swap Social: The “Crop & Swap” is a night of socializing and crafting. Bring your own project to work on and we can get together and just be social while doing what we love: crafting!!

Card Making Workshops: At each workshop I will teach various stamping & crafting techniques including: ‘wet’ & ‘dry’ embossing, die cutting using the Big Shot, paper piercing, triple layering, while showing you tips & tricks along the way! Each workshop fee will include: All materials needed to create the project AND detailed instructions that you can take home to re-create the cards again, and of course, lots of fun!
Unleash your creativity and learn more about card making & meet new friends!

Don’t want to travel? No problem, I can come to you! Just get a group together of people of 4 or more and I will come to your place and host the workshop.  The best part of being the hostess:  you can earn FREE product for yourself! Call me to find out how & to book your party now.

Here is a look at some of the cards I have made at workshops in the past – be sure to if you are in Vancouver, New Westminster or surrounding register for a workshop
