Who Wants to Make Some Cards for Ronald McDonald House?

Crafters - 

Who wants to make some Father's Day, Graduation, Thinking of You, Birthday, or kids cards for Ronald McDonald House Charities?  How about on Friday, June 3rd from 12pm until 2pm Eastern?

All supplies will be provided, but if you could bring your own adhesive, it would help...

This is not an official Stampin'Up! event; this is just an event to make cards. I'm not the lead for Columbus RMHC, so I cannot schedule events there for SU! 

If you could let me know you are coming, I can plan for how many tables/chairs are needed. If you cannot let me know in advance, please come -- many hands make light work.  :)

Please keep in mind, these families are there for a reason. There may be a bunch of them coming to make cards, or there may only be one. It depends on what fits into their schedules. Regardless, please lift them in prayer and hope to see you there.

You can contact me via email at:

Today's Card Class!

Crafters -

I had several FABULOUS friends join me today to make cards. Here is what we made - hope you enjoy them as much as WE enjoyed making them!
Butterfly Easel - close up

Butterfly Easel - closed. THIS is how I'm going to place the card in the envelope. You just know the recipient is going to look at it and go "what is this?" and play with the butterfly - which should give them a very nice surprise when the easel butterfly falls into its proper place!

Butterfly Easel Card using several items from the Summer Mini - Fabulous Florets (item #123025), Melon Mambo Embossing Powder (item #123223), Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item #123113 - remember the picture in the mini is backwards!), and I also used the Beautiful Butterflies BigZ Die - an SU! exclusive die!

Can you see the shimmer from the Shimmery White Paper? (Item #101910)

Using the Mi Dia Especial from the Spanish Supplement (Item #120427), along with the Level 3 Hostess Set Occasional Quotes. We sponged the clouds using Baja Breeze and an Extra Large 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch cutout!

Can you see the shimmer from the Shimmery White Paper? (Item #101910)

Using the Mi Dia Especial from the Spanish Supplement (Item #120427), along with the Level 3 Hostess Set Occasional Quotes, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Item #115370) and the Stamp-a-ma-jig (Item #101049). The Stamp-a-ma-jig is a MUST for getting the correct placement! We sponged the clouds using Baja Breeze and an Extra Large 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch cutout!

Strength & Hope - inside of card

Strength & Hope (Item #118100) card, with the Ribbon of Hope (Item #115552) stamp. Used some old retired Riding Hood Red buttons, the new Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine (Item #123125), and Whisper White Organza Ribbon (Item #114319). Did you notice how I colored the pearl? It matches the Cherry Cobbler Card! This card was inspired/CASED from one of Ronda Wade's Strength & Hope cards - Thanks Ronda for sharing your gifts and talents!

A Wish for Peace (Item #111614), Four the Holidays (Item #116921), and Woodgrain (Item #117100). I just LOVE the Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth stamps from the Four the Holidays set! We stamped using Chocolate Chip and then did the poppin' pastels. I used another person's card for inspiration on this but I cannot find the original now. If it is yours, please let me know and I'll add the appropriate information!



As you can see, even though we did only four designs, we made some beautiful cards!

My next card class is scheduled for June 25th. We will be concentrating on masculine cards and there will also be a Christmas design. Click on the "Classes" tab at the top for more information. Additional information will be posted by May 25th.

Hope to see you here!

Carry Over Items...

Crafters-

Well, let's see if I did this correctly...  :)

Stampin'Up! has THREE (yes, 3!) flyers with Carry Over Items listed on them. I'm going to try to link all of them here. I can send the PDF file to you via email if you would prefer.




Let me know if you were able to get those links to work!  :)

I'm SO glad to see that the fabric is continuing. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that the matching paper continues too! Don't you just LOVE SU!'s Designer Series Papers? I do!

As a friend of mine says, all the time - "Make it a GREAT day!"

Enjoy!
