Hello !
It's been a long time since I've posted. Sorry ! It takes *forever* to load quantities of photos here so I have been posting mostly on the Facebook page. I post there several times a week - usually once or twice with new product and then with kits. I have also been adding links to the kit photos so they can be purchased online for those who don't live near by.  To keep up on all the new goodies and stay inspired, I would recommend you follow on Facebook - Classic Hobbies.
I am working on a web site and will post a link to that when I get it done.
Here are this week's kits ...
This kit includes the supplies to make these 2 cards as well as the stamp set !
And only $6 !!
( you will need a stamp pad, adhesive and some sort of colouring materials - pencils, markers, paints) 

And this kit contains all the materials to make these THREE cards as well as the stamp  !
The kits is just $6.99 and all you need is adhesive.
(included stamp)

AND here's a little update on my hours !! I will be open EVERY Friday in July and August !! 10am to 4pm. Hope to see you !!

FOUNDATIONS KITS !! **NEW**

NEW !!! FOUNDATIONS KITS. 
Do you wish you could get an assortment of paper for cardmaking without having to buy a whole 12x12 sheet of each design ? Do you dislike the waste from the 6x6 pads when cardmaking ? Do you struggle with matching cardstock to patterned paper ? Do you not have the cutters & scoring boards that make cardmaking easier ? Well ... this should help !! :)
Each package contains 6 pieces of precut patterned paper , 6 scored & folded coordinating cards , and 6 envelopes. 
The papers have been carefully chosen for cardmaking so the patterns are the right scale and most are 2 sided, offering other options. Each package will be themed so you will know what you are getting. 
All for just $5 !

** this week I will have Valentine themed Foundation Kits although the papers will work for other cards besides valentines. Next week I will start cutting and assembling other themes. **



Here's what you get in the package ...
6 patterned papers
6 coordinating scored & folded cards
6 envelopes 


This is the reverse side of the papers ... so you can see there are options !

Lots of materials in that little package ... all you need to add is your stamping & creativity. 


Watch for more themes in the next few weeks. 

** PS Lots of new stamps, dies, and other items in the shop. Open this Friday Feb 3 10am to 4pm.

Valentine Inspiration

As promised ... the Valentines. I like Valentine's day ... not as a big romantic holiday ... but as a day to show your partner, family, and friends that they are special to you. A card with a little chocolate marshmallow heart or bag of jelly beans would make someone's day !
I mucked around for a few hours last evening and here's what I came up with ...

I mainly used this BARGAIN stamp set (just $2.99 and stamps beautifully !!) and this sweet little die.

I then went to town ...  stamping, making background paper, Distress "smooshing", colouring, cutting, and adhering. Here they are !
Background paper made with the stamps.

Stamped & coloured with markers.

Distress "smooshing" , washi on the side, and a few diecuts.

Stamped background and some watercoloured diecuts. 

Smooshing + foiled paper.

Stamped background, stamped heart that was coloured, then Stickled. 

Stamped and coloured with markers. A little red glitter paper for extra sparkle.  

Simple but bold. 

Stamped background, watercoloured strip, and diecut with the drop outs from another diecut glued in. 

A simple tag, stamped & coloured. 

Inspired by the paper. :) 

Holding hands. ♥
Another smooshed card with a watercoloured stamped image, cut out and adhered with dimensionals. 
I hope these cards inspire you to make some and spread some love and kindness !
