I'm a guest in the CLASSroom!!

A little while ago, I got one of the best emails ever- and invitation from Ellen Hutson to be a guest in the CLASSroom!  Of course I said yes :)  Below is a little sneak peek of my card:


I have a little treat for you as well...a giveaway!  Here are some of the products I used, and you can win the whole bundle!


Please leave a comment by the end of the day Monday (I'll draw a winner on Tuesday), answering this question:

What was your favorite part of this week?

Mine? Going to the beach!  Warm sun, cool water....just perfect.  Thanks to Ellen for sponsoring this giveaway, and for giving me the chance to be a guest!  Now go pop over to the CLASSroom!

  1. Popped over to the classroom and left my comment there, but I will leave it here too! I love that you used the die on the envelope too! My favourite part of this week was going through an old photo album with my aunt - seeing my mom and her sisters as youngsters was priceless and hearing all the stories that accompanied the pictures were a precious gift.

  2. Congrats on being guest designer in The Classroom! You have me scrambling for my larger skyline die, to see how it would look embossed. My favorite part of this week is today (Friday) - today is the last day of commuting 120 miles each weekday to get an non-driver's-licensed offspring to and from a fabulous summer intern job.

  6. Congrats on being a guest designer at Ellen Hutson Classroom.
    This Cityscape die is one of my favorite. Your card is gorgeous, as usual... I love the white on white and the embossed envelope, great idea! I will definitely give it a try.
    Now for the best part of my week; it was crafting a lot, and not only with paper.
    Thank you for the chance.

  18. wow - this was a bittersweet week - We have dropped off 2 of our 3 kids at their colleges ... the 3rd goes this weekend ... the reality has hit - the house will be kidless! I miss them so, but am so happy and excited for them as they each enter different phases of their lives - so my favorite part is seeing them all happy and content. thanks for the fun and inspiration.

  19. First, I have to say your card is amazing, and I'm going to have to try these techniques. And every single second has been my favorite part of this week! Our son/dil/and little Kelly have been here visiting from Scottsdale, and it's been wonderful. There's nothing like the sound of her laughter and squeals as she runs through the house yelling "chase me grandma!", or the look on her face when I made her #4 shaped pancakes for her birthday, the beach with her, the zoo with her...I could go on forever telling you about this visit, but I'll stop here. It's been a glorious, memory-filled, wonderful week! Thanks for letting me share a little of it. Bev

  22. Congrats on the spotlight over at the Classroom. I loved the idea of embossing onto the envelope. My fave part of the week was going to the movies to see Despicable Me with my hubby and sister and going out after for some dinner.

  30. Your card was great, thanks for sharing your techniques! My favorite part of last week was Tuesday. Every Tuesday a group of friend meet for coffee and it is a like a party every week. Friendships are so precious .. cherish them.

  31. I know this is unusual but I actually got a whole week of work in (it's been about 2 months since this has happened). I have a project that I'm testing at work and I feel like I made a ton of strides in my testing thanks to the whole 5 days.

    My next favorite thing - I went to Hobby Lobby on lunch and found this cute Christmas tree stamp and now I know what I'm making for my Christmas cards, yeah! Now I just have to make 60 or so...

  32. My favourite part of the week was spending time with some of my children, grandchildren and husband while we fished, water boarded, kayaked and basically enjoyed being with each other. What a gorgeous week!
    Then, I got to come home and relax!!

  33. Mine was Wednesday afternoon. My 6yr old and 8yr have gym classes back to back. Its hard driving back and forth so many times to drop off, swap over then pick up again but they love their classes so much and feel so proud of what they have accomplished or learned that day. Makes all the driving worth it!!

  34. Congrats on your guest design spot at The Classroom, so fun. My favorite part of this week was getting to spend quality time with my only child who will be leaving for college this weekend. I am totally depressed when he is not around so I treasure every moment when he is home!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats on your guest spot. My favorite part of this week was today when my grandson (who is 3) asked us to build a home in his hometown so that he could see us every day. My heart melted, as I wish it was that easy to do. That is such a beautiful age!

  45. Love Ellen Hutson and the Classroom which I frequently visit each week. Welcome to the Classroom this week and inspiring all of us. One of the things that I TOO did this week with my students, was to do a "splatter technique" but I did it with my water color pencils. The ladies loved it!! It is always such fun to do an envelope to give a surprise hint at what the person receiving the card can expect. Thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. AWESOME CARD!! I LOVE your FUN Design and the great Tutorial!! THANKS for sharing and CONGRATS on being a GD!! Have a. Fabulous Weekend!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thanks for the lesson in making the fab card, I'm a huge fan of the splatter look! Gorgeous! My favourite part of this past week was time my treasured crafting time, which sometimes has to be carved out!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the white on white die cut. I would never have thought to do that! Cute card over all.

    ReplyDelete

  53. your card is beautiful and I Love the matching envelope! The Classroom is a great place to showcase your work, but now I am going to check out your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  54. haha I just wrote a novel about your card art on the Classroom's comments. I adore your card art. My favorite is the run way challenges and seeing how you were inspired by the inspiration photos. You are so artistic. I always feel more like I'm viewing art, rather than a greeting card. I loved the matching envelope with the impressed city scape die to match the wonderful card. My favorite part of the week, was the whole week. LOL My husband cleaned out his closet and dressers, which I usually object to. I was so jealous Monday when I walked in to the closet and his side breathed a sigh of relief, while my side was jam packed so full that not one more piece of clothing would fit. I have spent all week going through 3 closets, 2 dressers and a hope chest full of my things......letting go and organizing. Ah.....that feels better. I've only done it 2 other times in my life of 50 years and 31 years of marriage. LOL I just realize I missed the sock drawer! hahaha

  55. Hi Jen! I just saw your beautiful card on The Classroom and I love it! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful art and techniques!!

    My favorite part of the week is visiting with family while vacationing in WA state. We had a family reunion last Saturday with my husbands siblings and offspring, with my siblings and their offspring on Sunday and with a favorite aunt and cousin on Thursday.

  60. My favourite part of this past week was meeting the amazing ladies at Ellen Hutson when I popped in to pick up my order! I even met Ellen! I rode a ferry, waiting in a long border line up and drove almost two hours to pick up this order but it was worth it! Love your card and I'm going to try this technique for sure!

  68. I did something delightful this week, making place cards for my son's wedding. My soon to be daughter in law helped and I taught her how to emboss the cards. She embossed over 90 cards; they are beautiful. It was a fun time that we will always remember and now she understands why I have so many crafty tools!
