Too funny ...

Last night's Stamp-a-Stack was so much fun! I don't know if it was because this particular group has never been together before, or if it was just a full moon, but we were laughing so much poor Anabel was in tears, and Jens face was red she was laughing so hard! It could've been that everyone just really, really needed a good night out, and all the planets aligned just right to make everything come together.

We made 3 great cards, but I can't take credit for any of them. I had such a laid back Mother's Day weekend that I completely forgot about the class until yesterday morning! Luckily, I have access to Stamper's Showcase on our Stampin' Up! demonstrator website. This is a huge library of card samples submitted by other talented demonstrators for everyone to share.

This first card I called "Happiness Always", and it was designed by Brenda Keenan. It was perfect for this type of class because it was put together quickly and easily, and we all love the In Colors. Some ladies cheated on the paper piercing (we won't name names!), but that was the only time consuming detail.

This next card I called "Pocket Silhouette", and we all loved it! It was designed by Betty Travis, and all I changed from her original design was the DS paper choice, and I moved the main image to the left a little. We made a mask to create the circle, and using daubers, we colored the circle with Summer Sun ink, and then went over the outer edge with Pumpkin Pie.

Finally, the 3rd card I called "To You from Me", and the original design was by Marie McClellan. Her card used some jumbo eyelets, but I thought the design didn't need them. I never would've thought to mix Baja Breeze, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip, and I might just keep this color combo in my repertoire. I think the Rust gave the card just the right 'kick'.

While at class, Frances asked me about my Project Class that I had scheduled for this Saturday, May 16th. I showed everyone the stationery box (with it's flaw), and explained that I wanted to re-work it. Also, I could never have it ready by the 16th because I need to order supplies. We chose a new date for Sunday, May 24th, but I'm sure Denise would want to attend as well, so I might change that date. In the meantime, I'll get working on it today, and I'll get photos on here with all the details.
