I'm teaching a class in December at our local library.  These are the cards we will be making:


All products are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated. 
You can place an order by visiting www.Stampinup.com.  If you don't currently have a demonstrator, I'd be happy to assist you.  You can contact me at kellyjmat@comcast.net.  If you choose to order online, you're welcome to designate me as your demonstrator.

                        journaling.

Adhere 2 3/4" x 4" Chocolate Chip to the Very Vanilla

Stamp the Tiny Teacup in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, then punch with the Large Scallop Circle Punch; brush the edges with Chocolate Chip and adhere to card. I used dimensionals to give it some depth.
