Posts from June 2008
I'm busy today preparing for my Black & White Stamp-a-Stack tomorrow. I've already shared 2 of the card designs with you, so here is your sneak peek at the other 3 cards.

Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: White Embossing powder, heat tool, Black gingham ribbon

My class attendees will be making 2 of each design. All of these cards are very simple to make and only require a few accessories to spice them up. Each card should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy this class as much as I have enjoyed designing these cards.
I'm still out of town, but I wanted you to have this information early. Here is the retirement list in numerical and alphabetical order:
Why 2 lists? I use the numerical order list to mark my catalog. It makes it very easy because the stamp sets are listed by page number. I use the alphabetical list to check my shelves for retired sets. This works well if you store your sets in alphabetical order.
This year, I'm sad to see Wild Rose retire. I made Isabella a name frame with this set before she was born and it still hangs in her room. It's such a beautiful set!
Hey Everyone! I'm still alive and I haven't forgotten about you. Stamping has had to take a backseat to my day job for the past two weeks. I'm headed to St. Louis this weekend to attend a continuing education seminar and then everything should settle down for awhile.....HA!
So, since I've been neglecting my loyal readers, I thought I would share several projects at one time.
The black and white cards feature the Fresh Cuts stamp set and notes, plus the Riot of Petals background stamp. I stamped both with versamark, then embossed with black powder. It has such a nice, raised and shiny look....very elegant. We'll be making these 2 cards, as well as 3 other black and white cards at my next Stamp-a-Stack on Friday, June 20th. There's still room if you would like to join me!
We'll be making the scrapbook layout below at club this month. The pages feature interactive elements, including hidden journaling and a moving pinwheel. If I get some FREE time this week and if there is some interest (pitiful plea for comments), I'll give you all the details in an upcoming post.
A new round of clubs will begin in August. I'll have the information posted soon as there will be a new option for long-distance customers.
Have a fabulous weekend!
During the month of June, you have the opportunity to purchase the FRESH CUTS stamp set (#111634) $21.95 and add-on the coordinating Fresh-Cut Notes (#111882) for only $5 more. These two products will be included in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog.

But wait there is still more.....

Please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 23rd so I can have plenty of materials for everyone.
