Sweet Ice Cream Class in the Mail

Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am sharing my Sweet Ice Cream Class in the Mail. This is also known as my Virtual Coffee and a Card class but this sounds a little more user friendly. I am thrilled that this bundle is once again orderable. The punch had been unavailable for ordering for the last month or so.


How Does It Work?


How does my virtual coffee and a card class work? Every month I offer a different focus for my class in the mail and next month it is the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle. It costs $25 per month which includes postage anywhere in Canada. The challenge is that I cannot include stamped images so I try very hard to design cards that focus on our pretty paper, punches and die cuts. You can order the bundle that I am using online if you like or you can substitute with stamps that you already have.

The other option is to subscribe and then you receive a gift from me after 6 months as a special thank you for committing to this program. It is really nice to know ahead of time how many kits to make! Deadline to sign up is April 21. You can subscribe here.

If you do not like to use PayPal you can also pay with cash, cheque or etransfer.


Sweet Ice Cream Cards


Here are the cards that I will be making with you for the month of May. Every Tuesday at 10am I go live on both YouTube and Facebook to make one of the cards with you. You are welcome to play along with me even if you don’t get my kits. The beauty of the kits is in the instant gratification!


Sweet Ice Cream Kit by Mail


You may notice that I do not have any of those cute Ice Cream Corner sprinkles embellishments. I forgot to order them!! They would make a super cute addition to these cards no doubt. Perhaps I will write a tutorial for these cards as that would give people an alternative to subscribing to this class. If you would be interested in that option, let me know.




Thanks for much for joining me today, I always appreciate it. It’s a gorgeous spring day so I am going to get outside, mow the lawn and plant some daffodils. You are probably thinking, plant daffodils? Don’t you have to do that in the fall? Well, yes. Funny story. One of my dear customers gave me some bags full of bulbs and I ran out of time to plant them so they were still laying beside my garage. Two days ago I noticed daffodils blooming there! They bloomed right from the bags without being planted in the ground. I figured such determination deserves a reward, so they are going to be planted today.



I hope you have a super day!!

Hydrangea Hill Virtual Coffee and a Card Class

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I a sharing my Hydrangea Hill Virtual Coffee and a Card class offerings. Have you heard about my Virtual Coffee and a Card Class? Let me tell you how it works.


Virtual Coffee and a Card Class


My business was built on my weekly coffee and a card class. When COVID hit these classes were not longer possible and I struggled for a while as to how to fill the need. After trying several options, I decided to do a monthly virtual coffee and a card class. I design a card for each Tuesday of the month and then I mail out a kit for the entire month of cards. Each Tuesday morning I do a YouTube live video tutorial on one of the cards. The cost for your package is only $25 mailed anywhere in Canada.

The easiest way to join in is to subscribe and you can do that right here.

After subscribing for six months in a row, you will get a free card kit from me in the mail. I hear that Stampin’Up! is going to offer an entire new line of kits so this could be super exciting.


Hydrangea Hill Cards


My Hydrangea Hill bundle was not available for a while and it still hasn’t arrived, so I decided to design the cards around the beautiful designer series paper and the mercury acetate that comes in the suite. The pastel pearls are also on their way so these cards will look even better when they get finished off with these pretty embellishments which will be included in your kit.

Here’s a sneak peek of the other cards that I will be showing you more of next week when my pearls are here.

The Joy of Kits

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I want to talk to you about the Joy of Kits. I know it sounds like other “joys” but kits are great fun. The biggest perk is of course the instant gratification. With little thought and no prep work you can make beautiful cards. I find that when you use a kit it can also jump start your own creativity. The kit I want to feature today is Gorgeous Posies.


The Joy of Kits:  Gorgeous Posies


If you have been following me on my business Facebook page you will know that I have been busy traveling to my parents a lot in the last few months. Pap is 94 and in declining health. It really is a miracle that he is still with us, having survived a heart attack and several bouts of pneumonia. I am so very thankful to be able to spend this time with them. We reminisce over the many blessings in his life and make

sure he knows how much he is loved. With an uncertain future I thought it would be a safe bet to focus on a kit for this months virtual coffee and a card class.

Every Tuesday at 10am I do a live video on YouTube with one of the cards for the month. If you choose to order the Gorgeous Posies kit and coordinating stamp set through me I will send you a bonus four card kit to give you more creative fun and inspiration. Please do use the current host code: 4T7A64MU. If you want to check out my YouTube channel, just click here. If you subscribe and then also click the bell icon that pops up when you do that, then you will be notified every time I post or go live. It’s easier to find videos on YouTube than it is on Facebook so it really is a wonderful resource.

Private Classes


I know what you are thinking. Private classes? With Covid still going strong? No worries, I was thinking virtual classes. They can be a LOT of fun too. If you would like to gather with a group of your friends and have me teach some card making , let me know. The easiest way to do that is around your favourite kit. It can be a Paper Pumpkin kit or one of the many great kits in either of our catalogs. My favourites include Hello, Dear Friend and Simply Citrus. I have ten Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkins in stock so we could also do a class around that.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a super day. The countdown is on!! Gerard flies to Canada on Thursday and I am ever so happy to quarantine with him.
