May Crop Event

Hi everyone,
I can't believe today marks the half-way point of April. I don't know about anyone else, but I am so ready for warm weather. I even like the cold weather but there just comes a point where I am DONE! I am ready for picnics, fishing, kite-flying, hiking and evenings with the fire pit and marshmallows. I know the good Lord will bless us with lovely weather soon....patience has never been my strength.

I know that May is traditionally a very busy month for everyone, but I am hoping you will all be ready to treat yourselves to a girls day out by the end of the month. So, I am hosting a Crop Day on May 30th (NOT Memorial Weekend). Here's how it works:

When: May 30
Time: 10am - 8pm
Where: Sue's House
Cost: $10.00

See samples from the new Idea Book. Idea Books will be available for FREE with a purchase or for $2.00 each.

You can use all my stamps, inks, markers, cricut and cuttlebug.

Make -n- Take

Bring an appetizer or dessert to share. I provide a big pot of soup, coffee and tea.

Bring all your stuff and be ready to relax and snip, glue, glitter and laugh the day away!!

Call or email to sign up by May 15th.

I am so excited!!! I got my first look at the new Idea Book!! It is so inspiring and although I can't show it to anyone until May 1st, I can tell you a little about it. First of all, there is a new paper pack that is themed for camping/outdoors and one themed for beach/surfing. There are 2 paper packs featuring bright summer time colors and 1 pack that is a softer floral look. There are tons of new stamps with something for everyone. I was so hoping for beach paper in this book and my wish came true. Close To My Heart is so much FUN!!

Well, here are a couple of cards using the April Stamp of the Month. It's called "World's Best Dad" and is obviously perfect for manly cards like birthdays and Father's Day. It will also go perfectly with the new paper pack that is themed for camping in the new Idea Book. I am hoping to get the time to make a scrapbook page using this set since we have LOTS of pictures of fishing outings.

This is the April Hostess Clubs project. We will be learning how to make the paper flowers using our Designer Brads as flower centers. Also we will learn a stamping technique called "Rock and Roll" that you can use on almost any stamp.

If anyone is interested in joining a Hostess Club, I have one forming in June. Just email or call me to sign up and to get the details. As always, if you already have a group of friends that love to scrapbook or stamp, you can form your own Hostess Club and I will come to your location or you can all come to mine and earn lots of amazing Rewards each month!! Just ask me how.
