If you are following along on my little piece of Cyber-World…. I have a question. Is the font on my posts too small?
I have been playing with the font and if I enlarge it, it seems ridiculous, but this size, as posted today, seems small. The quest is continuing for the perfect font/ size. I am going to have to do a bit of research on the subject. So if you check in to see what is happening and see a mismatch of fonts… you will know.
Last Saturday was the first of my Christmas Classes. This one featured the “Merry Mistletoe” stamp set. I know it seems like it is too early to start Christmas cards, but ‘Christmas in July’ is a popular card class. It won’t be long before the kids are going back to school (in Canada), then it is September, then everything is full throttle towards the holidays.
Stampers came out and made 5 unique cards using the Merry Mistletoe stamp set. There were two price points for this class giving the Stampers the option to go home with the Stamp set, paper and ribbon and another price point just for the Class. I think this worked for everyone involved.
If you are ever looking for inspiration, look no further than the Annual Catalogue. At one point it use to be called “Idea Book” and that is exactly what is it. This first card is “almost” a direct copy of a card that is in the Catalogue.
I wasn’t sure how the original card was made, so I “winged” it. I love the technique of taking marker to stamp…. we inked up only a few words on the sentiment and created a whole different phrase. This is what the original phrase looks like:
Pretty awesome idea.
