Going Postale (that’s Italian)


Cartoline Postale (Design 1) by Jessica Hollowell

I have postcard fever these days and can’t seem to stop making them–and yes, it is contagious. So I’m starting something new this month at Stampin’ From the Heart: Postcard Night. I’ll offer two postcard designs — this month’s are Cartoline Postale from Italy. You can make one design or both (as supplies last), but you get to go home with two of them– molto bene (translation: that’s good)! Maybe we’ll add a postcard trade at the next session (in April) if there’s an interest.  Postcard Night, Friday, Feb. 26, 6:30 – 8+ p.m. at Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A. , 310 391-0466 for directions. Cost $10. Join in the fun!

Paris ATcs & Masterboards


You’re in for a treat at this month’s ATC Night, because not only will you be trading cards and making some Paris collage ATCs, you’ll also be making a masterboard of your very own to take home and use for the basis of some wonderful cards. What’s a masterboard, you ask? Well, here’s a look at the one I made for the background of this month’s ATC project. It’s easy and fun and can be a great way to use up those scraps you’ve been saving just in case you run out of other materials. ATC Night, Thursday, Feb. 18, 6:30-8+ p.m. at Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place (at the corner of McLaughlin). Call 310 391-0466 for directions. Cost $10.  What’s an ATC?

Pink, Burgundy and Green ATCs


Yes, you read that right: green!! It’s a new year, so I am trying new things and adding new colors to my repertoire. I’ve heard it isn’t easy being green, and there’s not much of it in these Artist Trading Cards, true, but baby steps, baby steps. Lovely ladies and lots of layers on a tiny format (it’s kindof amazing how much stuff can fit on at 2-1/2 by 3-1/2 inch card). If you haven’t been to ATC Night, check out “What’s an ATC?” page on this site for details. Make some of your own cards to trade. After the trading session, you’ll get to make two cards from my design for the month. I’ll provide the materials. Stampin From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A. (310 391-0466 for directions), 6:30-8ish p.m.. Thursday, Jan. 21, 2010.  $10.

Sparkle Valentines


We’ll be making beautiful Valentine’s (or other occasion) cards on Friday, Jan. 8 — yes, that’s this week!!!! Be at Stampin From the Heart between 6:30 and 8ish p.m. to join in the fun. Featured will be four lovely papers from My Mind’s Eye–one is more scrumptious than the next.  Stamping From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A. (310 391-0466 for directions) 6:30-8ish p.m., $5 for each card, and you can make as many as you wish while supplies last.
