Saturday School week 10

Hi Students,

Here we are  at week 10.  This week we are going to see some of the items just released from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It has been so hot this summer so let's have some snow in August.

I started with my phonics card - as usual - this time it is "sn" for snow.
After adding the Distress Oxide Ink on the background I simply added the snowflakes for a wintery scene..

See you again soon,

King of the Road

Hi friends,-

I invite you to join me for a tutorial over at Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog where I will show each piece of the banner shown here and tell you how I made it.  See you there.

Ok, get that old Roger Miller song "King of the Road"  going in your head - - -
here are my new lyrics.
If you have ever been an RVer you will understand completely.

RV for sale or rent
No need for sleepin' in a tent
No phone, no pool, no pets
I aint got no internet.
It's an 8 X 12 with rooms that slide
Chairs that fold - so we can sit outside.
I'm a queen - by no means
He's the  -  King of the Road.

Happy Travels,

Sending Hugs

This card is one that can be used for no reason at all.  What a great feeling.  If you are thinking of someone, send them a hug!

I made this card using some of the new dies released by Karen Burniston.  She had many requests for this die set and she came through with flying colors.  It's simply fun to make and a joy to receive.

I used the Twist Panel Pop-up to create this card and then used some items from Karen's other die sets to embellish it.  I used the flowers and leaves from the Flower Pot Pop-up along with the labels from the Katherine Label Pop-up.  Words are from Word Set 1 - Greetings.

I like using a belly band for these cards because they are a little thicker and with the band the surprise is not revealed until it is opened.  As you remove the band and start to open the card this is what you will see.  The twist panel begins to show its message.

I used HUGS here but, of course, you can put anything you like.  Before attaching the panel to the card base I cut a decorative edge using the Nature Edges.
