Shopping Cart Info

I had the opportunity to attend the Gary Burlin Stamping with Style Weekend at the end of October, 2008.   Gary Burlin is one of the fabulous vendors I use to bring fantastic products to you.  This weekend was full of classes- 8 in all by 8 different teachers and the evenings were full of make -it & take-its too.  Along with great food,  exciting teachers and classes and meeting wonderful store owners, it was hard to leave.   We also got to sample some new products from the manufacturers so it was just a perfect weekend of bliss for me.  I thought I would share some of the class samples and ideas with you.

This was my favorite class of the whole weekend taught by Judy Ross.  I believe her store name is Creative Quest.  She was a wonderful teacher and I would love to visit her store and take more classes from her.

This was part of my other favorite class taught by Amy Flowers of Columbus, Ohio.  Amy is another great teacher and travels all over the United States teaching at stores.  Her style of teaching allows for your own creativity to come through.  These next few pictures are part of a class exploring all the wonderful Jacquard products like Pearl Ex, Pinanta inks, Lumiere, etc.  All the stamps were by Stampers Anonymous so that was another reason I loved the projects,  they are my favorite stamp company.

When we got done with all the cards we made in Amy's class, then we got to decorate this cool tin and keep them on a ring clip for future reference.

Tin Back

This wasn't one of the projects from the weekend but I enjoyed doing the tin so much I did this one for my grand-daughter.  She is turning 7 soon and I got some art materials for her and will be putting some of the ones that fit into this tin for her birthday (Nov 08)-an authentic, 1 of 1, grandma tin!  This is a great way to give a birthday, Christmas, any occasion gift.

This was a make it and take it that Amy did one evening.  I loved this also.  It was a technique she teaches layering acrylics and then drawing/stamping into them.  I was a bit impatient and stamped before it was completely dry so it pulled the paper up a little bit-hence the white spot, but have since penciled it in with black marker.

This card and the one below were part of another class taught by Judy Ross using acrylic pieces and Jacquard Pinata alcohol inks. 
If anyone is interested in purchasing a set of their alcohol inks, I can special order them for you.  The packaging is just soooo bulky thay are hard to carry in stock all the time and may require additional shipping.  I will have some of the acylic sheets up on the website soon. 
If anyone knows who makes the sunflower collage stamp, would you mind to drop me an email c_byers1@msn.com and let me know.  It wasn't marked on the stamp and I would like to find it.  Thanks.  I think they sell at rubber stamp conventions too.

The halloween card to the right was from a class taught by a gal from Cincinnati, Ohio who often teaches at the Stamp Your Art Out store there.  It has only been 3 or 4 weeks since the stamping weekend and already have forgotten so much--I hate that, got to write everything down if you want to remember it.  Sorry, I can't recall her name.  This, along with the Santa card below were part of her class.

santause.jpg

I love simple and elegant and this card ranks #1 in this category.  The santa is made from German scrap and it has a paper doily cut in half and applied to the top and bottom of the card.  Most of the pizazz was done with a gold ink pad, applying it to the German scrap, doily and paper.  Everyone in the class loved this card.

catstckruse.jpg

Meow!  This spooky cat was a make it-take it.  It is made with the die cut stickers.  Gold leaf was applied over the sticker.  It was quick, easy and a wonderful look, however I thought the die cut stickers were a bit pricy- you only got 3 on a strip.  The cat was a favorite though. 

gltrsnmnuse.jpg

This was a fun and easy card.  The snow people are those foil cut outs and it is loaded with glitter.  The background snowflake was stamped with a Versamark pad and then glitter applied to it.

This was another card from the Judy Ross class incorporating the acrylic sheets and stamping. 


ATTN:  MAC Users & Ipod Phone Users~
For some reason Mac/Ipods & Paypal do not work well together.  For some Mac & Ipod users, the Paypal cart will dump after several things are added to the cart.  I might suggest you write the item numbers down that come up when you "add to cart".  If it does dump, you can call -740-477-1238 or email your order c_byers1@msn.com.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I have notified Paypal of this problem, but so far it has not been fixed.
 
 
 
PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.
 
~International Customers~
When checking out with Paypal, please add your phone number.  The United States Postal Service is requiring that for all international shipments now.
Thanks
ANY large dollar order~~
The shipping on every order goes up with the total of the sale.  Many of the things are small so the larger shipping is not warranted, so then I refund the difference.
If you have a question on shipping please contact me at

This does not apply to the standard shipping charge-just the larger orders when the shipping charge is at higher cost.
