New Class and other updates…


I am so excited about a new online class from Amy Tan over at Big Picture called The Good Life. Why? Well, besides the fact that she is a doll, Amy is going to teach in the class how she makes her cool shirts. I am addicted to ordering handmade shirts from her, including this one she did for Colin…

The class starts September 22nd – I have already signed up and bought my supplies. I can’t wait to see her video and photo tutorials for creating tees! Yay! (Thanks, Amy, for sharing with all of us. However, rest assured – I will still be ordering shirts from you on a regular basis. :)

And as I (impatiently) wait for her class to start, I decided to create a couple cards using Amy’s new stamp set from her new line with American Crafts. (Which, by the way, is in stock HERE and HERE.) I created these the other day when Jana was over crafting, and I kept bugging her to help me come up with clever greetings for my mini cards – ones that would make the girls smile. This (computer-generated) greeting cracks me up and I adore the airplane stamp. Perfect card for Audrey…

By the way, I used all papers from the Studio Calico Boardwalk Kit. Love love love. This next one uses Amy’s camera and doily image. And, Jana cracked me up when she came up with this greeting…

Hee. I think Kay will like that.

And this is the stamp set I used…

Thanks for stopping by. Oh, and the winners of the Inspiration Showcase class are Kim K, Diane M and Kathy H. And the lucky winner of the Studio Calico kit is Jane S. Emailed you all!

    Love those punny sentiments & fun Amy Tan products. I bit the bullet & ordered my first ever SC kit this weekend so hopefully I’ll soon have some fun AT products to play with too (all your fault you naughty enabler!).
