More Stamp Camp photos

Okay, I confess, this is not the best picture I have everytaken. Actually it is really bad. But I it is 10:00 pm and I have to leave to go pick up my daughter from her job so no time for a retake. My daughter works at an ice cream shoppe, which is really bad because I want to get ice cream everytime I drop her off and pick her up.

The first card is using a new stamp set Double Line Doodles from the new (July 1st) catalog. Paisley is huge right now, there is a fun paisley stamp in this set.

The second card is using the Carte Postale stamp set (one of my favorites) and watercolor crayons.

As I told you in the last post, I went to a Memory Works party this evening. It was FUN. Gina was the hostess, here is a link to her website.

I am a Genuis

For anyone who is new to my blog, I am really not that "full" of myself, but sometimes I make something that I am really happy with and I proclaim "I am a Genuis". This also makes my sister laugh when I say it...... so I don't need any other reason than that.

Attached are two projects that I taught at stamp camp on July 21st.

The first one is a tri-fold card. I love pink and brown together, almost as much as I love turquoise and brown. And of course I love Stampin Up's double sided patterned paper.

I have seen several butterflies made out paisley stamps, but could never quite figure out how it was done. One day I sat down at my desk and made one, when I finished with this next card I proclaimed "I am a genius". Really the person who came up with this technique first is a genius, but I was pretty proud of myself that I figured it out.

If you would like dimensions or instructions for either of these cards, but send me an email.

I have more stamp camp projects to post....stay tuned

Tonight I am going with my sister and mom to a Memory Works party. I am pretty excited!! They have a clear journaling stamp set I have been wanting, and their paper is should be fun.

I'm Back......

Sorry I have neglected my blog for so long.... I added a new blog banner this week and made a promise to myself to do better. One valid excuse that I can use is that I broke my camera while in Florida. I had the camera in my purse and then shut my purse in the car door (cracked the screen). My husband (who is a genius) fixed it for me when he was home last week, so I am back in business. Here is a name frame that I made for my friend Criss's daughter, Claire, who had her first birthday party this weekend. I got the shadow box from the dollar store ($.50) and took it apart and put it back together. It came with the flower in it, but I took the flower out and cut it in half and put it in the corner of the box. I also made a butterfly using a paisley stamp, vellum and silver cord.
