Expresso Yourself Project Nights


Announcing a name change to Open House Stamping Nights to "Expresso Yourself Project Nights". I think it sounds a bit more funky and a bit more like what I would like you to do.
Express yourself through creativity. Share that creativity with someone else when you gift them a project you have made. We all love to receive handmade gifts. It says I think you are worth my time to make something special, one of a kind and unique.
Come to "Expresso Yourself Project Night" with a project in mind to work on or come and explore my samples and get inspired to create something. Just have a fun time being creative. Don't be intimidated thinking you cannot create a card on your own. This is the perfect opportunity as I will be here to help you. I will also have samples you can copy and tons of project ideas on my computer to inspire you. I will have available ink pads, rubber stamps, my Cuttlebug, sizzix, punches, cardstock scraps for layering, and card kits.
Cost is only $5.00 Make as many projects as you want.
Supplies to bring: Cardstock for your card base, adhesive, embellishments, paper cutter and anything else you may want to finish your project with.
So I can set up enough work stations.Please RSVP - (562) 484-9996
Check the calendar for dates and time.

Oh, Expresso will be served, well at least coffee.

Blessings, Diane

Clear Cards Class Projects

These are so cool to make. Did you ever think of making a card that start with a clear base? There are so many things you can do with them. You can stamp on them, use alcohol inks to color with, use your embossing folders to emboss, add silk and paper flowers as accents and so much more. Here are some cards I have planned for my Clear Cards class. Looks like am I switching some class dates around so this class will be Thursday, June 19th at 7:00 pm at Diane's Place. Class fee $15.00. See calendar for supplies list. Class will also be on June 28th at 10:30 am at Pinecone Press. Class fee $17.00.
Hope you can join the fun and learn several ways to decorate a clear card.
Blessings, Diane

Father's Day Card Class

I finally have some great cards for the Father's Day card class. If you don't have a Father to give a card to you can still enjoy giving them to someone for their birthday or just because. I will have a variety of greetings you can choose to finish your can with.
Classs date is: Thursday, June 5th at 7:00 pm at Diane's Place. Class fee is $15.00
Class will be also available to take on June 11th at 10:00 am at Pinecone Press. Class fee is $17.00. See calendar for supplies to bring.
The pictures really don't do the pictures justice. I need a much better editing program on my computer than I have.
