April Class and Club--March 27 and 28

April Stamp Club and Class will be on Thursday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. or on Friday, March 28th at 10:30 a.m. here at my home.  

We're having April's class one week early to allowanother round of Sale-A-Bration orders.
$10 for 4 projects, Free for 6 month/$25 stamp club members or with a $50 order, Only $5 with a $25 order...Please let me know if you are coming and at which time, so that I can be sure to have plenty of room for everyone. :)

I used MOJO Monday Sketch 337 for this card....It was so easy with the SaleABration Sweet Sorbet Paper and Easter Eggstravanganza set.  I just use the Word Window Punch for the sentiment and used sticky strip to adhere a Crisp Cantelope ribbon edge.  

This is a CASE of Karen Gibson's adorable idea. I just added a little mouth.  Though it was originally an Easter card, I thought it would make a cute baby card too.  Quick and Easy but super cute! I can say that since I didn't design it. :)

This card uses the Sale-A-Bration set, Petal Parade with Old Olive Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight. Everyone used the sentiment "So Many Smiles.....Begin with You" though.

Finally, we have this cute Cadbury Creme Egg Caddy. It was designed by Connie Stewart. All I did was a change a couple of the colors.

March Class and Club Photos

These are the cards we made last month...

This one was inspired by PaperandRibbons on Flicker...I was unable to trace it back further....It used different butterflies and I added the Soft Sky seam binding ribbon and interior greeting. The acetate folds around the back of the Soft Sky base and is adhered with sticky strip. It is stamped with Whisper White StazOn ink and heated with the heat tool to prevent smearing.  The "Happy Birthday" is stamped in Whisper White craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

This card was inspired by the colors of club member Shari Vick's new bedroom decor in combination with Julie Kettlewell's card design.

This card is very close to a card by Lee Conrey. I changed the color (from yellow to pink). I also just popped the entire cupcake on dimensionals so there'd be less to cut. I put an extra flat piece of Melon Mambo behind the bottom fringe so that the white would be more hidden.

The final card is just a double gatefold....Most chose to fold it the other way and put the polka dot on the inside...I think it looks best that way too, but I didn't want to redo mine because there might not have been enough paper for everyone to use Pistachio Pudding at class if I had.

You make a tiny mark at 2-3/4 on each side and cut from the 4 inch score to it at a diagonal and on the other side from the 8 inch vertical score toward the 2-3/4 mark at a diagonal.  The pieces that are cut off are glued to the front and inside on the fold (where you see my finger).
