Gift Enclosures and Best of Halloween!

Hello Stampers!

Another big week for us at the Gallery, the Oasis and the TAL (Titusville Art League)! Four fun and wonderful classes with the best gals in the world.  

At the Gallery we created 3 gift enclosures for holiday gifts and we created a cute, textured Halloween card using the Best of Halloween set.  We were all impressed by the incredible detail of these stamps!
Bright and early with the AM

We also made the spooky Halloween card.
(Well, not soooo spooky!!)
The next evening it was time for the SOS
stampers!  We made the poinsettia
card and the Halloween card and had a thoroughly 
enjoyable evening together.  Trudy was our hostess
and made theeee best blueberry 
muffins for us to enjoy.

This group has been meeting for 3 1/2
years!  We missed Michelle and Elise
who were on vacation.
The next morning it was off to Titusville
to enjoy 2 hours of stamping with Sharon
and Louise!  We had a fun time
and their projects were fabulous!
Some new products as well as a
few retired products too.  We used
Illuminate ink on the spider web embossing
folder to create an eerie, misty effect
Thanks to all of this week's stampers!!
Life is good!!
Coming up for next weeks projects:  A
birthday card and a Thanksgiving card.
Sure to be fun!

The Week of August 12 Creative Card Classes at The Art Gallery of Viera and The Titusville Art League!

Hi, Gals!  Week after week we have so much fun!  Prizes to give, anecdotes to share, giggles and great ideas too!!  We had a blast making a really cute ghost card, using for a model one that Elfi brought to share with us several weeks earlier.  The main idea was to make ghosts made from the owl punch.  We were very successful though Linda decided to make owls for a card for her owl-loving friend.  You'll love that one too!  Enjoy our week in review!!
Monday am creative ladies:  From Left-

All of our cards are stamped inside and

The Perfect Blend--My Stampers and Lots of New Products!!

Hello, Stamping Chicas!

I am excited to announce that I am happily expanding my stamping world in the following ways!

  • Online Order Perks--So many of my gals, near and far, have been sending orders online that I wanted to devise a rewards program. Most do not qualify for hostess benefits but the perks program allows a cumulative total program to earn lots of fun goodies.  You'll see more info and the chart in the right column at the top.

  • Coming Soon!  Stamp of the Month Club--I'm still formulating the particulars and I'll be contacting a few of you to act as a "focus group" for me.  I'll need to set up a PayPal system for payments, schedule of stamp sets, etc.  Delivery details etc.  (My thanks to Elfi for the inspiration for this endeavor!!) So far I know that members will receive a specified stamp set, $14.95-$18.95 in value, instructions and either 3 ready-made cards using the set or a kit of materials with instructions for making 3 cards.

Now on to this wonderful week!!  Our Monday classes at the Gallery were full of wonderful creative gals!  The fun and laughter carried out over the whole Gallery, I think!!  Thank you, gals!  You inspire me!! Yes, it's bonus time for the first person to email the words bonus time to me.  Here are some pix of the Monday classes and our Titusville Art League class.  If you know any creative chicas up Titusville way, let them know that we are offering a great class at 11 am on Wednesdays.
