Christmas Card Class

On Sunday I held my first Pennsylvania scrapbooking class at the house. It was a lot of fun and the creative juices were really flowing. Ruth, her daughter Courtney and her friend Talitha came to make eight Christmas cards. I was able to teach them a few new tricks and techniques like coloring with glazing pens & chalks, embellishing with Stickles and my favorite grey & black pen combo. We did stamping and added fun QuicKutz die cuts. There was ribbon and ripped up book pages to use as accents. I even made another batch of yummy chocolate bread pudding as a special treat! I must say that I had a great time and sure hope they did too!

Oh, and Ruth is the powerhouse of a lady who hooked Charles up with this wonderful house we are living in now! She is good friends with our new landlords, Kim and Virgil. It is kind-of weird calling them "landlords"..."new friends with a great house" would be a better description. I think that we hit the landlord lotto when we moved in here. Kim (& Ruth) have already been here for a scrapbooking party! How cool is that? I hope that I can convince them both to come to the scrapbooking retreat I am trying to pull together in the spring. I've said it before and I'm sayin' it again...the people up here are just so nice!!


  1. I saw this in the Pennysaver when I was "back home" over Thanksgiving, but couldn't make it. I grew up right up the road from you (judging by the photos) and go back to spend time with my family often. I'd love to here more about the scrapbooking retreat in the Spring!

  2. Too cool! Just keep watching the blog!

  3. fantastic, glad you got a group together!
