A bunch of butterflies

One of my favorite stamp sets at the moment is Flight of the Butterfly. I love the adorable butterfly images, but I also like the sentiments that come in the set. My favorite is a quote by Unknown (isn't she brilliant, and that Mr. Anonymous too?!?), it says, "If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies." Anyhow, I recently offered another preorder class featuring this set, which happens to be on sale through tomorrow for 20% off. Stampin' Up!'s requirement is that you first spend $20; however, I'll give it to you for the discounted price of $25.56 (plus s&h and tax) without a $20 purchase, but you have to order by 9pm Sunday, January 18!

So back to the class, we stamped three projects. The first was a card we had made at my open house for the Fall-Winter '08 IB&C back in August, but none of my class attendees had been able to make it, so they hadn't made that project yet (plus I had 6 supply packets already made up). You can go to this blog entry from my open house to refresh your memory.

Our next project was a cute and simple card that I CASEd from stamperjen0 on Splitcoast. Here is her card (and she CASEd herself). NOTE: both the Georgia Peach DSP used on my card and the Hawaii Papaya DSP that stamperjen0 used are included in the accessories that are being retired tomorrow. Another reason to call or email me with your order by 9pm Sunday, January 18.
For the final project I pulled out an oldy, but a goody. I used to make baskets like this one all the time, but it has been so long since I've made one that I had to tear apart a previously made (and already crushed) one to remember exactly how to construct it. SUPER SIMPLE! Maybe I'll post my first tutorial on how to make these cute things.

And we had to do something to go in such an adorable basket, so we decorated some scallop circles to adorn our peppermint patties.

Sweet wishes!
