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.

Happy Friday everyone! I'm afraid all my Spirited Snowmen crafting has issued in this crazy early winter storm warning! I'm kind of looking forward to a snowy weekend. Sadly, I've had to cancel my Sweet & Simple Class as well as the annual Stamping Bee Shoebox Swap and Christmas Party. Both events were scheduled for Sunday and that's when the snow is expected to fall. Safety first! I just hope everyone has enough crafting supplies to get them through thew storm! I had some ladies stop by the house for adhesive last night. If you need some, come on by!
Speaking of having to cancel the Sweet & Simple Class , I have 6 extra packet now. If you'd like one, click here to email me. There are 8 (2 each of 4 designs) festive cards, perfect for Christmas, New Years, or birthdays. You'll get everything you need, except the stamp set and adhesive. Cost is only $20 and I'll include free shipping.

Yesterday was my Making Christmas Bright Sweet & Simple Class. We had so much fun! I made homemade pumpkin bread (click here for recipe) and there was plenty of hot coffee, tea, or hot cocoa to help ward of a nice cool fall day. We made 8 cards, 2 each of four designs, all using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, which includes a fun stamp set and punch.
It's always fun welcoming new faces to class, and yesterday was no exception. And they came with a list of questions, everything from how do I know which Black Ink to use, what kind of classes and events do you have, and how do I join your team to get a great discount? I'll be tacking some of these questions this week on the blog because it's good to get answers to questions you might have, too!
First, let's look at the difference in the classes I offer. I offer a Sweet & Simple Class + a Monthly Card Club. Each of these focuses on just one stamp set. My Sweet & Simple Class focuses on Stamping Basics, with maybe one special technique, while my Card Club might have more design elements or advanced techniques. Both are offered in person in my studio or "To Go". To Go kits are shipped priority mail and include everything but the stamps, bundles, or ink. (Those are available for purchase as well).
During the holidays, I also offer a Christmas Card Club. For five months, August through December, it also meets on the last Saturday of the month at 2 pm. We make 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs and it includes $25 in product along with everything you need to make the cards. Available in person or To Go, it's only $35 (plus priority shipping). If you stay in club all 5 months, there is a free stamp set waiting for you, too! And as an added bonus, when you join both the monthly card club and Christmas card club, each month there is a special free gift. Last month, dual club members received the cool new Take Your Pick Tool, and this month, they'll each get a Red Distressed Card Tin.
Registration for both clubs closes on the 15th of the month. That means, today is the last day to register for both theSincerely Santa Monthly Club and Timeless Tidings Christmas Card Club. There's still time. If you want to register today, simply email me and tell me which you prefer, and if you will attend in person or have me ship your kit to go.
This is one of the cards from my Sweet & Simple Class yesterday.
