This month's Sweet & Simple Class will be a little bit different than anything we've done before. We'll still be making 8 cards, but instead of 2 each of 4 designs, we're going to be saying goodbye to some favorite Stamp Sets, Colors, and Designer Series Papers. And because I had a hard time choosing , we're making 8 cards, all different designs!!
Two Times to Choose from:
My Sweet & Simple class is perfect for both the beginner, casual, and avid crafters.
It's Friday! I can't tell you how glad I am, too! I don't know about you, but has this week seemed longer than normal? I'm sure there was an extra day thrown in there somewhere!
What are you doing this weekend? Tonight, I'm meeting some friends for dinner. Then, we're coming back to my place to drink wine and craft. Seriously? Does it get any better than that?
Tomorrow, I'll start my day off with YOU! It's Crafty Saturday on my Facebook Page at 9 am. We're going to be making Easter decor for holiday. So grab your paper, your scoring tool, and some adhesive and come craft along with me! Saturday also includes a little self-care and 'me' time with a manicure & pedicure and a little retail shopping therapy. I have to get ready for OnStage, right?
Then Sunday, I'm putting some finishing touches on my OnStage projects and presentation. I have so much in my head; I just need to get it down on paper. (No pun intended, really).
Have you registered for April Classes yet?
I know we're all a little anxious to see what's coming up in the new annual catalog, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of amazing products in this catalog, too. In fact, I'm showcasing some of those in my two April classes. And if you're not local, all my classes are available in To Go Kits, too. You'll get all the paper and embellishments you need to create the projects at home, along with a full color PDF tutorial.
First up is my Easter Sampler Class, which is next Sunday, April 14th. Come craft and meet new friends. A little stamping, a little coloring, a little snacking, and a whole lot of laughing. You'll take home a beautiful finished piece, perfect for framing. The hardest part will be deicing if you're keeping it or giving it away! The class is free with a minimum $20 purchase (or $20 for supplies). Please email me to register no later than April 9th so I can be sure to have your packets prepared for you before I leave for OnStage!

Do you craft with Post-It Notes handy? If not, you're going to want to start. Post it's come in super handy when "Masking". What's masking? Notice how my rooster from the Home To Roost Stamp Set looks like he's in front of the wheat? If I just stamped the wheat, then the rooster, you'd have wheat showing through him and that would be weird! Instead, try the masking technique.
When masking, you begin in reverse. Here's how I did it:

It has been a whirlwind few weeks here at Making Memories. And as the holidays come to an end, the Lad has fallen to the evil clutches of whatever sickness has plagued my parents, brother-in-law, and nephew over Christmas. I'm off to the store to pick up kleenex, apple juice, ginger ale, applesauce, and a chicken. It seems that our New Year will be spent quietly at home, getting plenty of fluids and rest.
So...today, I will leave you with my favorite 12 cards from 2018. Which one do you like best? Name your favorite in the comment section below.
