June Technique Class Thursday, June 7th at 6:30 p.m. or Friday, June 8th at 1:30 p.m.

Next Thursday, June 7th at 6:30 p.m. and next Friday, June 8th at 1:30 p.m. are the June stamp club/Technique class meetings.  As usual, class is $10 or free for 6/$25 Stamp Club members, $5 with a $25 order or free with a $50 order.

Please let me know by Tuesday, June 5th if you are able to attend or not and also if you’d like to join the 6 month/$25 stamp club for July-December. (I’ll have a small gift for July-December Stamp Club members.)  I hope to see you all for some fun summer stamping! 

Needless to say this little owl can be for a birthday or for any occasion in which you'd give a card to a man.  The green leaves are the new in color Gumball Green, and the Daffodil Delight ribbon is new.

We'll use the bleaching technique as well as heat embossing for this ship card.  The dark blue shown is the new Midnight Muse In Color.  The sentiment on the inside of this card can make it perfect for a brother, husband or son's birthday.

This card features the new Everything Eleanor set as well as the Primrose Petals In Color and a smidge of the new Summer Starfruit In Color.

Our last card will feature the In Color, Raspberry Ripple of course, but I haven't finished it yet.

May is National Scrapbooking Month

This time, our Thursday night class will have to be THIS WEEK on the 10th of May due to Sara's recital dress rehearsal on the 17th.  The Friday noon class can be on the 11th or 18th as decided by the majority of those who plan to attend. Please RSVP as SOON as possible so that I'll know if I should plan to have the class at either time or at all.  Your choice of layout (Nature, Girl Birthday or Boy Birthday) for $10.  You'll enjoy stamping and assembly for these quick and easily expandable ideas.

In this 12X12 layout, I used the main coneflower image to create a stamped break in the picture spots for a sweet look. I realized I hadn't used this set with Peach Parfait and Soft Suede, so I paired them with the chameleon-like green, Old Olive for a sweet look.

Next up is this Birthday Celebration 2 page layout for a girl. There will be more customizing available to you for these pages such as more letters and sparkly bling as needed. You can of course wait to attach your pictures until you know what they will be, or bring them if you'd like.

Finally, this potential Boy's Birthday layout which is also perfect for a thunder fan.  Letters can be a child's name instead of course as shown on the girl's layout. On the other hand, one would remove the cupcake and make the circle a basketball for a more thunder-y look. (More bling and embellishments available to you for this one as well.)

No worries if you aren't interested, I can use my samples for myself of course. :)
