If you thought Lauren’s fun-fueled FIVE Car(d) and a Folder Class sounded great, but you’re too far (or too busy) to attend, we’ve got the perfect solution: Here it is, as a Paper Anthology Class in a Kit! The kit features the same fabulous ingredients you’d be using in class… just in a more portable format.
This kit contains:
Five stamped and diecut Classic Cars from Honey Bee’s “Car Show” stamp set (1967 Chevy Malibu, 1956 Bel Air, 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, 1932 Ford Model A and 1960 Chevy Nova)
Five 4 x 5.25″ patterned paper background panels
All of the pre-cut collage panels for each card, with washi tape applied
Five pre-stamped sentiments, from Honey Bee’s “You’re a Classic” set, ready to be trimmed into flags
Five white folded A2 cards
One pre-cut, scored and folded presentation folder (just add adhesive!)
Pre-stamped panel, mat, heart and seambinding for front of folder, ready to assemble
Full color photos
Complete step-by-step written instructions
You’ll color the cars using your favorite coloring tools, assemble the pre-cut pieces into simple collages with the photos to guide you, and add the sentiments to complete each card. You’ll use pre-stamped and diecut pieces to decorate the presentation folder. The only problem will be deciding whether to send the cards to five different friends… give them as a set to one special person, or… keep them for yourself!
Rev up your engine and race to join Lauren for this fun-fueled FIVE Car(d) Class featuring Honey Bee’s Car Show Stamps and Dies. We’ll color the cars, add them to simple collages of pre-cut map and patterned paper shapes, add washi tape, then construct the easiest ever presentation folder (seriously, it’s two score lines and one cut!) to hold them. The only problem will be deciding whether to send the cards to five different friends… give them as a set to one special person, or… keep them for ourselves!
Dates available: Monday, 3/6 from 11-2; Saturday, 3/18 from 12-3; or Friday, 3/24 from 6-9. Cost is $32. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Please bring your basic kit, with all the usual adhesives, including foam tape or dimensionals and a fine-tipped clear-drying liquid adhesive.

This week’s challenge at Shopping our stash is “Washi, Washi, Washi! While I don’t have a stash quite like Lauren’s, I was able to pull together a nice collection for this nature inspired, fall hued card. While Washi tape is the focal point here, I couldn’t resist a bit of stamping. I used The Concord and 9th set-Just Because and added a tree ring stamp from the Honey Bee stamp set – Hello Gorgeous! Inks used are Archival ink (potting soil, of course) and Wendy Vecchi blendable dye inks -stamped and watercolored. (orange blossom, sunflower, acorn and fern green). Be proud of me – I’ve kept that cactus alive for almost a month now!
This weeks challenge at Shopping our stash, SOS381, is to create a card inspired by a food or beverage label. So I went in my pantry and this box jumped out at me:
Probably because I really wanted some biscuits, or more precisely, biscuits and gravy, but I digress..
The layout and the color scheme caught my eye and I was ready to roll! Here’s what I came up with:
The stamps are from a Honey Bee stamp set that I’ve been itching to get inky. The image is colored in with Polychromos pencils with just a touch of sponged squeezed lemonade distress ink to soften things up a bit.
