Plans are in place for this year’s annual Red Lodge Mini Convention.  A new feature this year will be the optional Shoebox Swap on Friday evening from 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm.  All day stamping and scrappin’ time and break out classes on Saturday.  October 2nd and 3rd, mark them on your calendar today!  Check out the information and registration page at:  It includes photos of class projects as well as the descriptions.  I am trying to attach a pdf file of the registration form.  Let’s see how that goes. 


Waterfall Card from Red Lodge Mini Convention

October 10, 2008

Here is my waterfall card from our recent Red Lodge Mini Convention.  At the end should be download links for two different instructions.  I’ll post the dimensions for my card either after the high school cross town rivalry game tonight or in the morning.

Fold Class – origami bookmark

October 27, 2007

These photos are not the best, but they will have to do (at least for now).  I learned how to make these from a printed pattern that all you did was print them out, cut them out, fold and voila you were done.  To use Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, start by using your acrylic grid to find the center of the square.  Fold three of the points in to the center.  With the "flap" to your right, fold the lower left-hand corner up to meet the edge of the upper right-hand corner and the flap.  Fold the upper left-hand corner over and down to meet the edge of the lower right-hand corner and the flap.  Tuck the flap in and enjoy your bookmark.    There are many web sites now with instructions, tutorials and videos.  Some are exactly the same and some differ from what I taught at the class.

Fold Class – Adirondak Chair Card

October 27, 2007

I have had this pattern soooooo long, I do not have the name of the person who shared it with me and I can not find one online or in a jpg or pdf file that I can share.  All class participants received a copy with their class supplies.  Remember to use a craft knife to cut the arm and top of leg before you fold it up.  The designer series paper is optional.  Wouldn’t this make an awesome BBQ invitation????

October 27, 2007

Here are photos and links to the original site and an additional site with the instructions for making the inside "explosion" 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" square piece.  Schoolhouse Explosion Card Instructions and Stamp Oh!

RLMC Scrapbook Border Class

October 15, 2007

I am having trouble getting someone to save the Excel spreadsheet into a pdf format.  I am posting three separate spreadsheet files with this post.  If I can get the pdf format available in the future, I will re-post.  The first file contains the cutting dimensions for both the Bashful Blue and Pretty In Pink textured card stock.  One file contains the cutting dimensions for the Real Red textured card stock.  The final file contains the cutting dimentions for the Wild Wasabi textured card stock.  You can easily make 30 scrapbook borders from only 1/2 of the Simply Scrappin’ Winter Bright kit.
