Cardmaking Fun at the Gallery! Easter Gate Card and a Pretty Greeting Card

Hello, Stampers!

Yes, the time does fly and after a March full of travel and creative classes, I am looking forward to a complete day of catching up, creativity and perhaps even an hour of outdoor relaxation!

This past Monday was funday at the Gallery!  We made these really fun cards!  I love the fun of a gate card and we made a really cute Easter card using For Peep's Sake, from the Occasions catalog. After my botched surgery to separate the 3 chicks, (always separate stamps while looking at the rubber side, rather than the label side!!!), we were able to fill in the blank with a Crisp Cantaloupe Stamp 'n Write Marker.

Our second card was one I found online and I thank Kim Jolly, whose masterful stamping you can view at  , for the design.  I pretty much completely CASE'd Kim's simply beautiful design.  You can find a supply list for our cards below.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

One Page Wonder--Wonder!!

Last Thursday's One Page Wonder workshop was such fun!  I provided an inspiration sheet but my talented stampers just took off on their own and let their creative juices flow! We enjoyed a relaxed afternoon and the good company of enthusiastic stampers!  Thank you, Jane, Dara, Nancy, Sydney and Mike!  Here are just a few of their creations!!

Hello, Stampers!

I'm back in town for a few days before heading to Orlando to judge Orange County Choirs.  More fun for me and life is full and a little crazy!  I've had a wonderful time in Ft. Walton and Vero Beach this past week.  Such fabulous choirs and wonderful directors. I am soooo lucky!!  

Coming up:

Hooray, It's Your Day Kit

Hi, Stampers,

I'm getting in one more post before I leave tomorrow for the panhandle!

I wanted to post some pictures of our cards from the Hooray, It's Your Day Workshop!  We had a fun time creating cards from the myriad of supplies that were included with the kit and added a few of our own stamps and embellishments too!

Enjoy our "pretties"!!  We still have a stack of cards and supplies to play with!!

A fun gift card holder!!
Didn't think I'd love the wooden accessories but they are very cool and your can color them with your gold or silver gel pens.
Happy Stampin'!!
See you in a week!

First Communion Ensemble

Hello, Stampers!

When a friend recently asked me to create 20 First Communion invitations, I was anxious to make pretty invitations for her little girl.  The project list grew as we included response cards & envelopes and thank you notes and envelopes.

These quickly became hybrid My Digital Studio projects, with some embossing, die cuts and punches.  I ended up enlarging the response cards to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when I realized my original response cards were too small for the USPS.  They were cute anyway and I'll re-use the envelopes!  :-)

The color palette is Pirouette Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.  You'll see a product list at the bottom of the post.

Have a happy, stampin' day!
