One of the highlights of Stamp Camp for ME was learning that Tiffany Williams decided to join the Stampin’ Up! Family and she signed up to be on my team! Welcome Tiffany!! I can’t wait to stamp some more with you!!

I had to throw this last picture in there- since we were so close to Jumping Jacks, Amye, Jamie and I decided to grab dinner after stamp camp… Jamie ordered the same burger as Amye and I- only she didn’t know a Jackburger is a double burger- too funny!

Shout out to Amye, Jamie, Judy for all their help with set up and helping all the stampers! ANother shout out to Sheila and Nicole for helping us with clean up at the end. Special thanks to all who attended- I didn’t get pictures of you all, bummer- I was trying to get every stamper in action- but I missed several of you.

The room was nice and cool, spacious and very conducive to our Stamp Camp- we might be back again. THe cards we made/collected will be sent to the Wounded Warriors by June 20th- if you couldn’t make it to Stamp Camp, and you want to donate some hand-made cards- please let me know and I’ll be happy to collect them from you to include in our package.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate your time!
I sent out an email this morning about my new Ribbon Share- I’ll blog about the details tomorrow, so come back to visit! thanks!

April Club Cards

How was your week? I hope you all enjoyed the spring weather, finally! I’m thrilled to finally be getting back outside and started walking again.

I had activities every night this week and finally sat down last night to plan and start preparations for my club this month- nothing like cutting it close, whew.

I did some case-ing (again), I was so inspired by some awesome cards by fellow demonstrators in our local Stampin’ Up! group.

This first card was one we made last Sunday at our team get-together. The creators were Cathy K and Mary Beth W. Didn’t they do an awesome job? I love the watercolor paper- it holds up so nicely when you use the aqua painters.

This second card was inspired by a card that the ever talented Jean Hall brought for our sharing table. I loved how she used the new woodgrain big background stamp, embossed it in early espresso, and turned it into the flower pot. So cut and easy. Know how to turn it into a flower pot? Use the biggest oval framelit to get that curved edge on the bottom, then slice off the sides at the angle you want. Pretty easy.

The third card for my April club ladies is one that I designed, I really wanted to use the Trefoil Cross (single stamp in the Annual Catalog). I pulled some Wisteria Wonder DSP from my retired stash, it really made the card complete. I love doilies, don’t you?

This card could be easily turned into confirmation, first holy communion, sympathy, wedding, thinking of you, or pastor appreciation card.

I have a busy weekend planned, how about you? Any stamping plans? Hey- I have a favor to ask you- could you let me know what handmade item you would be likely to purchase at a craft fair? I have limited time and so many ideas, but I want to narrow it down to what people might be most interested in.
Don’t forget next Saturday is the Relay for Life Fundraiser at the Saratoga Holiday Inn on corner of Rt 9 and Rt 50 in Saratoga Springs. Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
