For All You Do Class

Last week I went to a class with my upline Susan. She taught some of her downline projects that they did on the Cruise/Hawaii (I believe). I loved them from the moment she first showed them to us, and I'd really like to teach a class using these projects this fall sometime.

So, if you went to Hawaii with Stampin' Up! you'll have seen these already. If not...enjoy the projects! :)
It all begins with the most awesome part to me :) A special tote. I call it the C Tote. C for Christine, C for Create, C for Coupons....whatever you'd like! (of course you COULD use another letter...wink!)
The tote is made with On Board Book Basics, Textured paper, and DSP. The set is the very pretty For all You Do.

What I love MOST about this Tote is the accordian fold pockets inside. Here's a closer look at all the parts:
Closeup of front shows the detail of the cut flowers, the Bigz Serif Letter as well as the butterfly trail with the piercer, as well as the clasp with the Flower Designer Brad.

Next you can see the side accordian fold up close:
And the top view of the pocket sections.

Awesome hey? We also made 3 cards with the tote. So here they are:

This one I called a Stepped Accordian Fold Card. Sort of the same feel as the tote.

Here it is open, I totally messed up my sentiments along the way, so I had to do some creativity embellishing to *cover* my spots. :) But actually I like how it looks like that. I'm just not a good "in public" stamper! LOL! I need the quiet of my own table at home to stamp well. Anyway....what's pretty about this card that you can't see is the white textured paper. It looks so good with the solid stamps.

This second card might be my favourite, so simple, but great color scheme and details. Rock and Roll and stamp kissing on this one.

And last the little 3 x 3 card I thought was adorable, using stamp kissing as well. Isn't it cute? Love the textured paper. I need to get more of that!

Oy did I sunburn this weekend. Like ouch pain! It's all my fault too. Friday afternoon we went to our friends house where they have a large in-ground pool. It was so fu , but I burned, I thought about putting on the sunscreen, but didn't, just because I didn't want it to get in the pool. Not very smart :( Thankfully the kids didn't burn. But I have a rosy nose, and a front and back that are tttttender!

Thanks for popping over!
