Summer Mini Catalog MINI-Workshop

Alrighty Crafters!

Who is in the mood to make a card using a NEW stamp set from the NEW Summer Mini Catalog that is effective on May 1st? You? GREAT!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 1st, from 3:30pm-4:30pm. You are invited to my home for a Summer Mini Catalog MINI-Workshop and you will be able to make that card! Please RSVP by Thursday, April 29th, so that I will have the supplies available for you to complete the card.

I am in the middle of a training program with Stampin' Up! and one of the Challenges is to have a workshop the first half of May. I think this fits the bill! :)

OH, and as an added bonus, if you place a $35 or more merchandise order ON MAY 1ST ONLY - I'll even pay your 10% shipping charge (shipping and handling charge will be deducted from your total total). AND you will be placed in a drawing for a FREE Level 1 Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper III!

If you are unable to attend but still want to place an order - OUTSTANDING! Contact me on or before May 1st a…

My Rag Quilt Purse!

Check this out! I haven't sewn for quite some time. I'm guessing my sewing machine is about 25 years old if that gives you any idea of exactly how much I DO sew. :)

BUT, "everyone" seems to be making these Rag Quilt Purses using the Big Shot and the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die. So... my wonderful sideline Jen demonstrated the Rag Quilt Bag/Purse to us at the April upline meeting. And my equally wonderful sideline Mindy, along with Jen, are going to show us how to make these purses in May. They provided us with a list of items to bring to the class. Alas I didn't have the Scallop Square die. However, my equally wonderful downline Geneva did and she was kind enough to allow me to use hers. Guess what I just ordered today...

Please don't look too closely for flaws, there are several. But it wasn't hard, and it wasn't really all that time consuming. The handle still needs to be placed on the bag, but for now, I have a sample to show. Let me know if YOU w…
