New Catalog Here in June!

Hello Stampers!

I can preorder catalogs May 2, so if you are a customer of mine, plan on picking one up as soon as they are here (probably the second or third week in May).  For demonstrators that went to convention, they could preorder sets and got a lot of free sets while they were there.  Unfortunately I didn't go, so I have to wait to order!  I have found some cute samples online and thought I would share some of them with you, to show you a little preview of what is to come.  The first is designed by Janet Wakeland and is a fun set for the stamping fanatic in you!


The second is from Stampin Up Sam.  A cute bicycle bundle!


My favorite sets are the Coffee Cafe Bundle and Seasonal Celebration Bundle!  I will be offering classes with them as soon as I get my samples made AND watch for a free open house in June!


Coffee and a Card Preview!

I was playing around with my inks and came up with a background that I really like.  It involves a bunch of layering, but each layer makes the final product look better and better.  Here it is!  IMG_0560

This will be one of the cards we will be making at our first Coffee and a Card!  Of course it looks better in person because photos never do the original justice.  If you would like to learn this technique (your choice of sentiments - Birthday, thank you, etc.) and make two other cool cards too, email me to sign up for Coffee and a Card on Saturday, April 15 at nine or eleven!  Space is limited, so when the sessions fill, they are closed.  A three month Coffee and a Card schedule will be posted after stamp camp next week.




March Color Fusers Blog Hop!


This month's challenge looks so spring like to me!  I am still using the DSP packs that are so versatile and provide so many pieces of each color that you can easily make a bunch of each card.  Balloon Adventures Stamp Set and Balloon Thinlet Pop Ups make an easy and fast Birthday card!  We will be making a version of this card at our April stamp camp.  Join us if you want to see how easy this is to make!


Put your sentiment on the back or....


I will post directions later.  I know I cut the cardstock 4 1/4 by 11.  I believe I scored it at 2 1/4 from each side.  I know the inside section with the balloons on it is also 2 1/4 wide.  That leaves the small sections at 2 1/8 each.   The DSP was 2 by four inches.  A great way to use scraps!
