Here is a better picture of the Free Card class you get when you order 50.00 or more from my online store using host code FSN2A24E

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

What is better than free?  Not much! Would you like to make 12 cards in one session? The above is only a small sample of the 12 cards. It is really easy to earn this FREE CLASS! Simply place an order of 50.00 or more on my web site  and use host code FSN2A24E.
Not only will you receive a free sale a bration item of you choice.. you will get this class from me... FREE.
Okay Why? I had to cancel several classes while I was sick and  Karl and I are going away for a few days on a mid winter get away and I will not be home! We are leaving Late Wed eve and coming home late on the 20th. So while I am gone I will be unavailable ... we are turning our phones OFF! 
If you have any trouble ordering at my online store... you can email me, but no grantees I will respond in a timely manor. It is pretty simple... go to Barbs online store and click on the shop now button on the top banner. Make sure to scroll to the bottom where it asks you if you have a host code and use FSN2A23E. It will send to your home... easy peasy! If your are spending 150.00 or more , do not use the code so you can get your rewards, and I will still give you your class for free. I will make arrangements with you for your free class to be held at a time convient for you. Thank you for being my "Peeps"

Christmas Cup

 As promised, here are the directions for this cup. Please bear with me as this is my first Tutorial
Supplies Needed
Neutral colored Card Stock..( I used Sahara Sand) 81/2 x 51/2
Score board or the score tab on your paper cutter
Tear-n-Tape or Fast Fuse adhesive
Washi tape of your choice

with the 51/2 side at the top of your score tool, score at 2inches

Turn the card stock 90* and score at 2,4 and 6 inches but only go to that 2 inch score mark.  At the 8 inch mark score all the way down.
Add strong adhesive JUST UNDER  the 2 inch score mark put adhesive over the last 3 tabs and just above the bottom add adhesive (tear-n-tape used here)
 Add adhesive to tab on left from top to 2 inch score mark 

cut away far left small tab 
cut tabs on bottom cutting thru tear-n-tape 
starting at right side end take tape off and roll onto next tab
continue "rolling " cup bottoms
take tape off inside tape and tuck inside cup 

For handle cut a piece of card stock 1/2 x 11 
Put adhesive tape from one end to the 31/2 mark, on the other end put adhesive tape from 3inch to the end 
sorry its hard to see 
Take the tape off the 3 inch end. Put this end into the cup... I put mine on the inside seam.
Take the tape off the 31/2 end, put it on the very bottom of your cup all the way to the end.
You will still have some glue showing on the inside of your handle.... just press it against the cup and Poof* Instant handle

If you would like to add washi tape or dsp do so before adding your handle. Decorate as desired.... and fill with goodies.. 
They do make up fast and make great little gifts! 
I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial... If you have any question just leave them in the comment box below... and I will try to answer them as best I can. Or email me or call me! 
Merry Christmas Crafting!

Thank you Brenda Q for posting the original tutorial!

For those who still need Christmas Cards.. I will be doing a "Christmas Card Crank"
On Friday December 9th starting at 2:30 pm and going til about 8pm...
and again on Sat Dec 10th... starting at 2:30
It will be simular to an open house... I will have lots of cards prepped...  and you pick the ones you want to make... everything you need for that card will  be in the bag or box... you choose which ones you want to make. The cost is 2.00 a card, or 3 cards for 5.00, 7 cards 10.00 and 16 for 20.00 . Once  a card gets all the supplies used up, it will be retired... and I will not be cutting more supplies for that card. Hopefully this will help you get your cards done and help me reduce my already prepped cards inventory! I will provide some light snacks you bring your adhesive.. bring your favorite soft drink of choice in a spill proof container... and we will keep them on  table off the main work table.

So here is a chance to see the new house , have a snack and make cards!

Just a few of your choices! And many more to choose from!
 RSVP  to  so I have enough snacks
Message me to get my new address!
