Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun!








During the past week I've had a few stamping events: first, I had a stamp class where we made 4 cards, matching envelopes and a purse (photos above) to hold them, using the Sweet Stems and Kind Thanks SU stamp sets and the Faux Silk Technique. I had 11 gals here and we had a super good time!

Stampers hard at 'play'....


For this class I set up a table in my living room and also used the dining room table adjacent....one day I'll have a stampin' loft for classes and events! For really big groups I simply rent out the community hall or church...


I also had two stamp clubs this past weekend. This month our project was an altered journal and coordinating pen.


I taught the super fun and easy "Emerging Color, with a Twist" technique. Simply take a bold stamp and using Versamark, randomly stamp over your DSP (Designer Series Paper). Emboss in clear. Then take a dark ink pad and wipe directly over top. Moisten the tip of a paper towel to remove excess ink off the embossed images...MAGIC! The color just pops! Soooo fun!

Stamp Club #1 & their journals....

Amy shows off her masterpiece!


(The creators of all these journals were camera shy - but I appreciate them letting me post their finished works of art. Thanks to those that don't mind modeling for the camera!)


Stamp Club # 2

(note Heather's carrot cake - it was delicious, Heather -thanks!)

Jen, with her masterpiece!

Shallon's "From the Heart" Journal

Everyone's projects turned out fabulously!
Way to go Ladies!



My journal and pen - the pen will be rolled in micro-beads! I'll post the photo of that tomorrow. These make such nice gifts - perfect for recipes, travel diary, gratitude or prayer or dream journal, notes, quotes, etc....

Tomorrow is our last class at the Family Resource Centre. The ladies and I hope to keep in touch and stamp! I think we will! Here's the journal we'll be making tomorrow - there'll also be coordinating pens.


HAPPY STAMPING!
