Special May MITI


Make-It-Take-ItI’m doing a special Make-It/Take-It this month on the first Friday. It features four  mix-and-match cards to choose from. They’re good for any theme: Wedding, Graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Happy Birthday or Just Because. There are stamps to cover all those occasions and a few more. We’ll be using metallic paper from SEI’s luscious Couture line–I fell in love instantly. Each card is mounted on beautiful silver glossy card stock that makes these cards look extra special. Join me Friday, May 6, drop in starting at earlier — at 6 p.m.– till 8ish, at Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place (at McLaughlin Ave.). Cost is $5 per card, make as many as you like as long as supplies last. Materials supplied by instructor, Jessica Hollowell. Hope to see you there.



ATCs All Buttoned Up and Lacy


Artist Trading CardI’m takinArtist Trading Cardg the vintage lace and buttons theme to extremes with color-rich fluid acrylic paints–my absolute fave–playing a major role.  Everything’s bright and beachy in preparation for summer. Join me for ATC Night, Thursday, May  19, starting on time at 6:30 p.m. and going till 8. Stamping From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A. (near McLaughlin Ave.) Call 310-391-0466 for directions. Cost is $10 to make two cards of my design. Trading is optional, but if you wish to go home with little works of art by others in the group, bring around 10 cards of your own design to trade–plus one for me and one for Karen’s store collection. What’s an ATC.? you ask. Check out the page on this site for the answer. Hint: Anything goes! The only rule has to do with the size.

Real Vintage Postcards


Vintage Post CardI found some very neat old papers in an antique store and that’s what inspired the postcards for this Vintage theme. For an extra touch, we’ll be using some special iridescent buttons that came from an estate sale. Trust me, the photo doesn’t do them justice. Join me for Postcard Night, Friday, May 27, starting on time at 6:30 p.m. till about 8. (Yes, it’s the beginning of a holiday weekend, so I hope you’ll be able to make it.) Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, at McLaughlin Ave., in L.A. Cost is $10 to make two cards from the four designs available. Materials supplied. Hope to see you there!
