Hi everyone...hope you are having a great weekend! I have spent the morning getting ready for my Sunday Stamp Club and catching up on some much needed "paper" work.
I had a wonderful time in Sequim last weekend and met some very talented ladies. Lots of fun painting and creating beautiful cards from the " mind of Sandi!!!" I always find her classes fun and very informative. If you ever get a chance to attend, do so!!! & I have an inside track so ..... Now, some time during the day we hit on something new and the "HOLY SMOKES" that's neat happens. Well the use of Velcro(tm) happened and a new technique using cling wrap! If you want to book a workshop with me I will share !!! My Stamp Club ladies will be privy to some of this next month...stay tuned.
Onto some card ideas.....I love the Stamp Sail Away! in the summer mini. Living on the west coast and on an island I see lots of boats and am very drawn to all things to do with the ocean. ( I think being a Pisces has a hand in it also).
Card number one.....lots of different elements going on here.
The striped grosgrain ribbon came from the Clearance Rack but I don't think it is available anymore.Just goes to show if you love it get it...one day it may be gone!!?? Who knows...it may end up in the Grab Bags. Lots of goodies in there!! Check them out! I am sure you could use the twill tape on page 190 and then add the taffeta 1-8 ribbon in Night of Navy or Marina Mist. Just some ideas. Also the Baker's Twine in the mini could be used for the rope "look". I used some kitchen string...who would have thought!.
Here is the "flotilla!!"
So that is all for now friends....I can feel the excitement building!! June 1st is a big day for all us demonstrators!!! With sneak peeks to the new catalogue, colors and preorder......a very busy time coming up!!! What will be carried over, what's new and so much more. You too can be privy to all this....I can let you in on the details of becoming a demonstrator. Just give me a call or check out the links.
Stay tuned for some fun and bright cards coming up. Til then have a great weekend and keep smiling!
Cheers from Shelagh in Shawnigan.
