Although I didn’t get this made before summer officially started, I did finish it on Sunday morning and boy, I am sure happy with how it came out. As soon as I saw that Stampin’ Up! came out with new stencils, I was so excited about the possibilities! I purchased both our new Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks and Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks. They are different size dots and stripes than the stencils in the Build a Banner kit, and I knew the stars and stripes would look amazing done in Real Red, Night of Navy and I threw in some Smoky Slate for the letters. Also to the rescue were the new Star Framelits and this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit!!! How stinkin’ cute are the pinwheels??? I adore them and I think they are just the perfect touch on the “Summer” banner… what do you think? OH, also, I used the NEW glimmer paper and the cute little star punch from our new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (I have been using those 3 new little punches on almost every project since they’ve arrived here).
Can’t wait for this class on Thursday! And for more patriotic themed projects! Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit, and I hope you have a nice day!
Happy Monday Friends!
Yesterday was our first Lynnzcrafters Stamp Camp in Scotia- it went really well! I think the pictures speak a thousand words:
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!

Hi there friends!
Isn’t this card adorable? My dear friend Deanna W. needed to borrow some punches and card stock for a patriotic themed card class she was asked to do, and when she returned my things, she gave me one of each card that they made… I will show you two cards today, and be sure to come back tomorrow for the other two cards!

Hi there friends! I hope you all had an enjoyable, long weekend! I dug out two old cards to share, from my patriotic cards, I usually put up a few on my buffet in my dining room, and switch cards with my seasonal decorations.
What do you think?
If you, or a loved one, served (or is serving) in our country’s military, my deepest thanks for your sacrifices… I know our freedom isn’t free. Bless you on this special day and forever more!
