I know these announcements will make a lot of stampers very happy! :)

For this card, I made a pocket out of the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper, punched a couple of holes and tied it together with a ribbon. The new Full Heart Punch fits perfectly with the heart stamp in the FREE Polka Dot Punches stamp set, so the card comes together very quickly!

Warning: you are going to want to use the Texturz Plates on EVERYTHING! I had to give the lesson in church yesterday and I passed out some scripture references so everyone wouldn't have to hear me read the whole time. I wanted to run them through my Big Shot! I settled for stamping them though. :)
(I know I'm a dork!)

These two are made with the Pillow Box Die (or the ear plug box as Richard calls it). They are quite small, as you can see, but sooo cute! Supposedly you can fit a "fun size" candy bar inside, but I couldn't find any. These three little candies you see fit just right, but it is a snug fit.
Stampers chose from the Rock Star stamp in one of the new Level 2 Hostess sets called A Little Somethin', or the Hugs & Kisses stamp from the Love You Much set. There were also a few other stamps to choose from, but these were the most popular.
This box is "Box #2" in the catalog. (FYI: it can work with 8 1/2 x 11 paper.) It is also small, but holds *12* of these Hershey's Nuggets. That is about half a bag. It isn't a treat you'd want to send for the whole class, that's for sure! Normally you can cut out at least two boxes at a time, but we found with this particular die, it was cutting where it should've been scoring. Since the class, another demonstrator told me that if you use the Premium Crease Pad when cutting, you won't have this problem. I have that pad, but had no idea what it was for! ;)
The stamp I used here is the Lovey Dovey stamp from A Little Somethin'.

We embossed the Love stamp by stamping first in the Versamark ink and then directly in the Riding Hood Red ink, stamped it on the paper, and then quickly poured clear embossing powder and heated it. Using the Versamark in this way makes every color of Classic ink pad into an embossing pad. Very cool! Many hadn't seen this technique before, although I feel like I've shown it a zillion times. :)
It was a great class, and I'll be showing the other things we made in the next few days.
