Wild Roses for Mother's Day

Are you ready for Mother's Day?   At the gifts for mom class last week, we completed 3 projects:  the stamped frame, photo album, and coaster box.  The scrapbook pages were made at this month's scrapbook club.  All of the items were made with the Wild Rose stamp set and the Recollections Designer Series Paper.  I love the rich colors of Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp, and True Thyme.  Unfortunately, all of the IN Colors will be retiring soon.  If you need to stock up on Cranberry Crisp, True Thyme, Buckaroo Blue, Cool Caribbean (another favorite!), Marigold Morning, or Vintage Violet, then call me today!

And the winner is....

Julie Rupert sent me her list of 30 stamp sets that she guessed would retire......and she had 23 correct!  She has earned a FREE stamp set to add to her collection.  Congratulations!

I'm busy getting ready for the Great Scrapbook Escape next weekend and I'm very excited that I'll have time to work on my own scrapbooks.  If you weren't able to join us for this event, we have already booked October 12th and 13th for the next ESCAPE.  We'd love to see you there!

But first, I have had several classes and clubs this weekend, so I'll share with you what we've been up to....Friday was Funky Technique night.  We made 6 artist trading cards and learned 6 stamping techniques:  Funky_techniques_1

Polished Stone, Kissing, Masking, Faux Mother of Pearl, Emboss Resist, and Dry Embossing.

Hpim1008 Verda and Renee also completed the Gifts for Mom class on Friday night.  I'll share photos of the projects later this week.  They coordinate very nicely with the scrapbook pages we'll be making at scrapbook club on Sunday.

Please take a close look at the Stampin' UP! retirement list.  Stamp sets can be ordered anytime until June 30th, but the wheels are in very limited supply and many have already sold out.  Don't miss out!

Have a great week!
