Kathy's Kraftbox - December 2016 - with Video!

This is the project we will be making in December's Kathy's Kraftbox classes.  These are a series of classes that I teach for the Chesapeake, VA  Parks & Recreation Department.  This is a calendar that fits into a CD case.  You will stamp different images on each month's calendar.  Watch the video to see each calendar page.

Below are photos of the calendar pages.

This is actually a great project for the beginner stamper.  Most of the pages are just basic stamping.  There are a few with a few extra steps - but I guarantee that anyone can make this calendar within the two hour class!

November 2016 Stamp Club Projects

These are the projects we made at my stamp club classes this month.  The tiny treat boxes are clear boxes  filled with Hershey Kisses for a quick table favor.  The one on the right is lined with THIS CHRISTMAS Designer Series Paper.  Below are closer views of the boxes and tags.

The clear boxes are cute just tied with a little SILVER RIBBON.  I made the tag using a stamp from the STITCHED WITH CHEER stamp set (on sale through November 28, 2016) and a little doodling around the edges of the DECORATIVE LABEL PUNCH.

The tag on this box was made using the TIN OF TAG project kit and coordinating TIN OF TAGS STAMP SET.  The stamp set is on sale through Monday, November 28, 2016.

CLICK HERE to see the items on sale during the Online Extravaganza - through Monday.  Some items are up to 40% off.  Place an order by Monday using the current hostess code WU74QG34 and I will send you four beautiful hand made cards.
