Harrisburg Area/Central PA stamping classroom is on its way:) September 5, 2008

It has been a busy exciting week here at my home….and over at Taylored Expressions.  Make sure you hop on over for her challenge and to see what I’m talking about.  You don’t have to use cupcake images to participate. 


I know, it’s a busy one lol.  But when I think of Halloween, I think of tons of goodies….candy to last a couple months.  So, my candy kinda flows across the card.  I applied Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder to all of the larger candy cutouts.  The upper sentiment is a rub-on and is attached to the ribbon by a mini paper clip from Clips Assortment.

Now, about the post title.  I am so excited to announce to all of the locals (and those from afar that want to travel a little), my “classroom” is almost complete.  I have been begging for a stamping studio for YEARS NOW.  This will be a 14′ x 40′ area that I have designed personally.  There is a full bath (okay, probably no need for the shower but ink and glitter can get crazy at times).  There is a sitting area.  I am dedicating a whole wall to samples where I will display all of the cards I have received from all of my stamping friends:) and all of the cards I make.  There will be a networking station with a computer, epson photo printer for scrapbooking and good quality printing that may need done, video tutorials, and much more.   For those who know me, my work area is very CLEAN AND ORGANIZED.  Once I am done with the business boot camp, you will be able to view upcoming classes on my Stampin’ Up! Website.  I look forward to starting classes and educating on the art of stamping.

Check out what the rest of the cupcake crew has made:

Stephanie Hargis, Jami Sibley, Monika Davis, Lynn Mercurio, Sherrie Siemens, and Ana Wohlfahrt.
