New Clubs Starting Soon!!!!

I wanted to share some opportunities with everyone of events that I have coming up.

• 1st I’m starting a “Hostess Club”! This will be a monthly meeting (12 month commitment) at my house where you pay $20 a month (before tax & Shipping). You will learn a new technique every month plus have time to stamp & scrapbook and also use my tools and toys! The best part about this is that 1 person every month will get to be the Hostess and receive all of the Hostess benefits (which includes a free stamp set and free merchandise).

• 2nd, Is the Marker club. This is a chance to get the whole set of Many Marvelous Markers, In Colors, The Case plus the Color Spritzer, for $33 a month (total) spread out over 5 months!

A couple of other things that I’m setting up will be a “New to Stamping/Card making 101” Class in September, and a Christmas Card “Stamp-a-Stack” in October (more info about dates, times, and prices for these classes will come later).

If you would like to participate in ANY or all of these events, please email me back and let me know!

**And I wanted to let anyone know that isn’t local that you can participate in any of these events as well, you’ll just have to pay extra shipping for me to send the products to you. For classes I would send you the precut product with directions on how to assemble, and anything else I would just send you your stuff separately**

Stamping 411, Saturday Sketch #162

Hey everyone, I subscribe to Stamping 411's blog and every Saturday they have a new sketch challenge.  I liked how simple this one looked and figured I'd give it a try. 

Here is what I came up with.  I played with Poppy Parade, one of this year's In Colors, along with the Hostest Level 1 Designer Series Paper (also in Poppy Parade).  I added a layer of Whisper White ran it through the big shot using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate, for a little added dimension. The flowers were also done with the big shot using the Floral Fusion die. 

The little flowers in the center were punched out with the 4 petal flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  1st done in Whisper White, then again with the same DSP I used for the background. 

Finally I stamped Thanks from the Thank You Kindly stamp set, in Poppy Parade and layered it again on the same DSP!  Let me know what you think.
