The first class I attended in the morning was Pixie Stick class, which is a childrens class, taught by my very talented friend, Saundra James. We made bottle cap charms. Estella made an awesome fairy collaged pendant, and I made a super-cute magnet. I have no idea where Estella has hidden her necklace away, but I do have pics of my magnet that I made.
How cute is that!? It's a little french bulldog wearing a crown. Too cute!
Saundra also taught a class using the new Tim Holtz dies. We made a beautiful flower with his flower die and some used books and glimmer mists.
And we made a very cool looking ornament out of grungeboard with the bird and cage die.
In addition to these projects, I took two classes taught by Ranger Certified Instructor, Sondra Kirtley. Every year for NSD Sondra designs a layout all about NSD. Last year, I got a chance to preview the layout she had designed for NSD 2009, and I dressed myself and my daughter in clothing that would coordinate with my layout!
This is such a great idea, Sondra actually takes photos of all of the participants throughout the day, and prints them for us to use on our layouts, so we could actually have a photo of ourselves working on our layout-to put on our layout! How great is that? This year Sondra even emailed me a preview peek of her design so I could plan my wardrobe accordingly. I tell you-it doesn't get any better than that!
Here are two cards that Sondra K. designed for us to make on NSD also. I love anything with dimension, bling and kraft card stock!
