Primitive Coasters.....kind of...

So I took another FREE Cornish Heritage Farms on-line class.....and wow!......again..... !!

This week's class was taught by Lesley Langdon and it was called Primitive Christmas Coasters because we were making.........can you guess!!!???

Primitive Christmas Coasters!! la- la-la loved it!

AND once I followed the directions and bought the proper tiles, I was set to go!

.......except for the fun fact that I didn't have the "called for" colour of Staz-on or the "called for" Stamp Set - do I EVER read directions??!!

The whole premise of the on-line classes is fabulous.

A couple of weeks before the actual date of the class, which are on Tuesday's, the list of supplies needed to make your creation is posted in their on-line forum, giving you plenty of time to gather them up.

Then on Tuesday, log on to the class link and you are away!!

I was actually able to easily substitute the stamp set and ink, so I was quite happy!!

As mentioned, I bought my tile for the coasters and it ended up being glazed tile instead of porous tile- WRONG!! (I swore up and down I did NOT get the glazed tile - but sadly, yes I did)

I went back to the store and very easily found the porous tile - *insert rolling eyes here*. Next time I get my tile I think I will scour the boxes first and pick through the tile to get the not so much holy hole-y tile. If you are reading this from Home Depot - do not try to stop me.

I am so pleased with this set and absolutely love how they turned out!! yay! Link up and try one of these FREE easy classes!! You will LOVE it!!

Stamps: Kim Hughes Heart Warmers, Cornish Heritage Farms Snowman with Star
Ink: Black Staz-on, copics, Krylon 18 karat gold leaf pen
Other: Home Depot porous tile, tag, gingham ribbon
