Kitchen Table Stamper Vertical Garden Party – April 28th 7pm

Vertical Garden Party

Join me for a Kitchen Table Stamper Vertical Garden Party! Let’s get together and make this beautiful home decor project. April 28th at 7pm in my Rolling Meadows, IL home studio.

My birthday is April 30th so I think we might have to have a little extra party in our Kitchen Table Stamper Vertical Garden Party.

$30 includes your Vertical Garden Kit and snacks and most likely a little bit of birthday cake and some red wine too.

Chicago Area Stampin Up Classes

Please bring a bone folder, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue and hot glue gun. If you don’t have a good bone folder and a new fresh bottle of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid, please add them to your Vertical Garden Kit order, we will all need our own tools to finish this project in the time allotted.

Craft it your way!

Some of you have expressed interest in making a clock like the one in the Stampin Up 2017 Occasions catalog. Some have said they would like a wreath. If you would like to get creative with your kit at the Kitchen Table Stamper Vertical Garden Party, please be my guest.
Bring a wreath form or clock! Before class, grab some dry moss or clay pots or little glass terrariums to decorate. It’s your kit, craft it how you like but don’t craft it alone!

Valentines Day Decorations – pocket tutorial

Valentines Day Decorations
I am so excited to be getting ready for my Valentine Party and Card Class! I have missed my paper crafts and crafty friends so much! I am decking the halls all out with Valentine’s Day decor. I want a festive atmosphere for my reopening! I just finished these pretty heart pocket Valentines Day Decorations. I did a picture tutorial when I made the second pocket. I hope you enjoy the tutorial. Please let me know if you make this pretty Valentine’s Day decor. It’s not too late to RSVP for the Valentine Party and Card Class:
Friday, January 24th at 1:00 PM or
Monday, January 27th at 6:30 PM or
Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30 PM

Step One:
A Muse Studio Large Heart Die
Here is what you need, all supplies are from A Muse Studio
Bubblegum Felt (EAFT203) cut with Big Heart Die Set (TAD0046) Cut TWO hearts.
Vanilla Felt (EAFT002) cut with Butterfly Trio Die Set (TAD0002) Cut small and Medium Butterfly.
Vanilla Felt (EAFT002) cut with Big Heart Die Set (TAD0046) Cut love sentiment.
Cherry Felt (EAFT204) cut with Nestabilities Spiral Blossoms 4 (TSB4364)
Sage Felt (EAFT501) cut with Flowers Die Set 2 (TAD0031) Cut THREE of the largest leaf.
Cherry Silky Crush Ribbon (RACR204) 4 1/2 feet – cut in half.
Onyx Dots Twinkle Stickers (EATW100)
Crystal Clear Glaze (EACL000)
Sewing Machine and White Thread
Step Two:
A Muse Studio Big Heart Die
Roll Cherry Felt flower. Starting from the small point at one end of the spiral, roll tightly until you reach the wide round base at the other end of the spiral. Then Adhere with Crystal Clear glaze as show:
Valentines Day Decorations
Arrange leaves as show and adhere flower again using Crystal Clear Glaze.

Step Three:
Valentines Day Decor
Using Crystal Clear Glaze adhere “love” sentiment to one of the Bubblegum hearts. Also adhere four of the largest Onyx Dot Twinkle stickers on the medium butterfly as shown here:
A Muse Studio Big Heart Die Set
I decided to add a small Vanilla Felt butterfly on the second pocket. It’s not pictured here. If you are going to add the second butterfly, now is a good time to embellish the small butterfly with three medium Onyx Dot Twinkle Stickers.
Step Four:
Valentines Day Decoration
Cut the Cherry Silky Crush Ribbon in half. Fold one end in half ‘hot dog way’ and then in half hot dog way again. You are reducing the width of the ribbon by three quarters, making attaching it to the heart easier. Once you have the end folded put it under the presser foot of your sewing machine and sew back and forth a few times.
Step Five:
Valentines Day Decoration
Pin the reduced end of the ribbon in between the two Bubblegum Felt hearts. Machine sew to form a pocket. Be sure to back stitch the beginning and end of your machine sewing to further secure the ribbon and stitches.
Valentines Day Decoration
Step Six:
A Muse Studio Big Heart Die
Use Crystal Clear Glaze, embellish the heart pocket with the flower and butterflies. Put a little piece of wax or parchment paper inside the pocket to keep glaze from soaking through the layers. Tie the Cherry Silky Crush Ribbon in a big bow and hang. I have one on each of the closet doors in my new studio. Happy Valentines Day Crafting!
Please share this tutorial with your friends and don’t forget to pin it for quick reference!

1400 spam comments..u been away too long!

What a summer this is going to turn out to be! I had been so sick. Then got a little better then got a flu. Then got some life changing news! I need to do A Muse Studio much different than I had planned – at least for the summer! Changes are coming to my life and home, so changes have to come to the business too! I am sorry I have been away so long. I needed some time to process what was happening to me. I will be blogging less frequently. I am aiming for 4 times a month through the summer. I will share three creative posts and one post with the monthly A Muse Studio specials. I might have a post or two from my good friend and upline Angela Kelley too. This summer is going to be chaotic and life changing. Please bear with me!
I want to share a couple of pictures with you. This is my summer to SQUEEZE THE DAY! Here are a few things I made for Violet to give her teachers on the last day of school.
This is a 4×4 canvas. I sprayed it with Lemon Whip and Papaya Splash! ink and let it dry. The following day I stamped the sentiment with StazOn and the Lemon with A Muse Studio Papaya and Lime Ink. I am really excited about how the A Muse Studio Ink stamps on the canvas! OH! the possibilities! I did have to heat set the Papaya and Lime ink on the canvas. The results are beautiful.

I made this water bottle hanger with Raspberry Lemonade drink mix. The jelly jar is filled with lemon drops and I just embellished the lid. After I looked at this picture on the computer I realized that the perspective is weird for the water bottle. If you want to see another water bottle, check this post. I gave the gifts last week so this photo will have to do. 🙂
Squeeze the day jar and bottle
I packed it all up in this simple stamped gift bag and enclosed this very simple card. The card may be CAS, but the message inside was a heartfelt thank you!

Thank you for stopping by! I am working on getting a newsletter out with more details about my new abbreviated summer schedule and plans.
