I just love the new Sparkle and Shine paper. There is no way that a photo can truly show how pretty this paper is in person. The colors are juniper, slate, ruby, and white and they look incredible together!  I was so excited to get started using this paper, especially for a new Christmas card!  Supplies used are listed at the bottom of this post.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Now "Hop" on over to my friend, Rebecca Cross' Blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants in the Hop to get some great crafting ideas!  Remember the Holiday Gift Guide is only available until December 31!  Contact me or shop directly from my website to get your holiday products today!

Cards and Kits!

I am so excited because I have had so many people ask me to have a "virtual" card workshop for those who cannot make my actual workshops. So......I'm going to have one!
Here's how it will work:
Every month I will create FIVE cards that will not be posted online at all. They will truly be exclusive cards and super special. 
You may buy the card workshop for $15.00 by the 15th of each month.  This will be an introductory offer for October so I can see how the postage prices run.  If they are too much then the price of cards may raise a bit in future workshops. 
You will not be able to see the cards until you receive the kits.
If you've been following my facebook page, blog, and newsletters then you've seen examples of my cards which will give you a good idea of what you'll be getting.
By the 20th of each month I will sent out your card kits in the mail, the pieces will be cut and stamped for you.  The day I send out the kits I will send out instructions and photos of the card by email.  You will then be able to put the cards together.  For those of you who are consultants, I have no problem with you using my cards in your own workshops. 
So, this is the chance you've been waiting for!  Payments may be by credit card (you will call me with the number 989-906-6420), paypal to, or you may mail a check to:
Barbra Otten
1247 W. John Beers Road
Stevensville, MI 49127
The first cards will go out October 20th and your order must be in by the 15th.  Thank you and let's start our first virtual card club!
