Cards




Here are a few of the cards that I made for my Quarterly Downline meeting. The Petite Pansies card (Birthday Wishes in Old Olive) can also be seen on page 170 of the Idea Book & Catalog. One of the BEST selling points for the Simply Sent Card Kits - the design is already done for you - I think that is the hardest part. This card will be part of the Shoebox Swap. The Herb Expressions card (Thyme card with butterfly) uses some of the new InColors - Melon Mambo, Soft Suede (LOVE IT!), and the new Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper. This card will be part of the Shoebox Swap. The last card is the card front I did for our swap. Again, I'm using another design from the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, but this time I paired it with Pale Plum and Rich Razzleberry - you should see how great it looks IRL. Don't you love how the Word Window punch fits perfectly with the new Modern Label punch? Me too! Enjoy!

Christmas in July - 12p-2p FULL CLASS

Crafters -

The class from 12p-2p is now full! There are still openings in the 3p-5p class.

IF you are currently scheduled for the 12p-2p class and would like to transfer to the 3p-5p class, let me know. Both classes WILL be offered.

Remember, we will be doing different cards at each of the classes. For example, one of the cards featured in the 12p-2p class will be a free-standing pop-up card (make SURE you bring sticky strip). The 3p-5p class will feature a pocket card using the Top Note die cut, exclusive to Stampin'Up! (again - sticky strip will be needed for this project too!). BOTH classes have GREAT card designs, if I do say so myself. :)

You will need to bring plenty of your regular adhesive (I recommend SIX). Sometimes the tape runners break, glue sticks run dry, or you just get a "bad" one. This is the REGULAR ADHESIVE NOT the Sticky strip - you will only need a small amount of the Sticky Strip. If you have a partial roll, you should be fine.

Look forward to seeing you on the 18th!

Happy Independence Day!

Crafters -

Today is Independence Day. Please celebrate (responsibly, of course! ) and enjoy your families and friends.

If you get a chance this weekend, feel free to make a Patriotic card - there are a NUMBER of veterans, current military members, friends, and families who would enjoy receiving a handmade card.

Here is a beautiful poem, about our U.S. Flag, penned by Ruth Apperson Rous, entitled "I am the Flag". With so many flying their flags this weekend, I felt it included such nice thoughts that I would share it with you. I hope you enjoy reading it: http://www.usflag.org/i.am.the.flag.html

To so many, our U.S. Flag represents our freedoms and the men and women who so proudly serve so that we may celebrate those freedoms.

Thank you to all for everything you do!
