Q's Creative Cards: BOUQUET BLISS KIT

It seems appropriate that I'm releasing my Bouquet Bliss Card Kit on Valentine's day.  Maybe you received a bouquet today?  If not, then why not give YOURSELF a BOUQUET of CARDS?  

These feminine cards will have you swooning (who still says that?) with delight as you assemble delicate Roses into bouquets surrounding beautiful sentiments celebrating, charming and comforting the ones we love.

All kits come pre-cut and ready to assemble with a step-by-step slideshow, as well as written instructions.

This is the first in a series of Spring card kits that I'm releasing for mail-order from my Spring retreat.  It will start shipping next week.
*I highly recommend adding the 1/8" foam strips I've added to the shopping cart below and you can see them below as well. (if you don't already have them).

Blooming Cards 2020 RETREAT!

SO, so excited to share my news!  I've been sitting on this for months, waiting to finish designing beautiful BLOOMING cards!

After 13 years of teaching monthly classes (first at Roberts Crafts, then Hobby Lobbys up & down the Wasatch front in Utah), I've retired... to something even better!

What's better than a 2-3 hour card making class?  A 24 hour one!  :)  Well, we will be sleeping for part of the time, I hope!  But yes, the future for Q's Creative Card Classes will be retreats held 2-3 times a year here in Salt Lake City.


The retreat starts at 6pm on February 28th and ends before 5:30pm the next day, Feb. 29th at the Salt Lake Marriott Courtyard Convention center.

I'll be teaching Bouquet Bliss Cards on Friday night, from 6-9ish.  SO pretty!  Delicate bouquets strewn on lovely sentiments and soft shades of spring.

For those who are staying overnight (me, me!) will continue the party as long as we can keep our eyelids open, crafting evening away, playing, socializing, munching and having fun.


Saturday morning we'll wake up bright-eyed and bushy tailed, just in time for my Simply Springtime Cards from 9 - noon.

We will have a delicious catered lunch, some free time, make & take, shopping etc... before starting our last class of the retreat, Happy Day Card Keeper & Cards!

This is a bright & cheery way to end our retreat.  Class starts at 1:30pm and goes until 4:30pm-ish.  This is a BIG kit!  The best part is this clever fold top card keeper (just fold & adhere) and SEVEN cards for every reason.  This kit includes envelopes as well.

We'll end out retreat with an optional card swap!  You'll leave with a happy collection of cards to take you all the way through summer, as well as creative swirlies in your head, friendships, fun and did I forget to mention a swag bag and prizes?


Like ALL my card kits, these retreat kits will come with a step-by-step slideshow (will be emailed to you ahead of time).  Each kit is pre-cut and ready to assemble.
Simple supply list will also be emailed to you.

A few of you have mentioned that due to work and health issues you can only attend part of the retreat.  There are limited spots for individual classes, but you can add them individually in the drop-down menu.  These will be card classes only (no swag or prizes, sorry).

And yes, for ladies outside of Utah, all 3 kits will be released in the next few months for mail order.  Stay tuned!

Hotel rooms (double occupancy) are $130 + taxes for one of my blocked rooms.  Add the $50 deposit from the drop-down menu.

We are already over 2/3rd full, grab your spot today!  If you have any questions, please email me!

Q' Creative Card Kits: LOVE LETTERS

Close enough...15 minutes until a Happy New Year!  A new year...a new decade!  Hope 2020 is a banner year for you all!

It's going to be a year of changes for me and Q's Creative Cards and I'm both sad and excited about it! You'll be hearing more about that very soon!

In the meantime, please enjoy my first kit (not an in-person class) of the year!

My Love Letters Kit is all about sharing your heart in many different ways.  Sweetheart, Friends & Family, wedding etc... 

 
Pretty shades of pink with a delicate splash of aqua makes for a pretty palette... and these cards SPARKLE!  4 cards, an envelope card (can use as either...2 of the cards are square and will fit inside) and a roomy pillow box.







I've used two new additions for this kit, Nuvo Jewel drops/Sea Breeze is an awesome glue that dries translucent and dimensional, perfect for flower centers.



 
Unicorn Stickles has flakes of pink and blue which matches perfectly with this palette!  You can add both of these items from the drop-down menu below OR you can visit my new "Card Making Supplies Page".
