I Must Remember Everything!

I'm excited to be offering a monthly stamping class in a small town about an hour and a half south of me!  It's the first out-of-town class I've done so I will need to be super diligent about remembering to take everything with me!  Does anyone else have that problem?  No matter how hard I try to remember every tool or accessory I need for a class, I always seem to have to run down to my craft room about 3 times to get something!  I think I'm slowly improving though.  Tonight I only had to get 1 thing and I was running one class plus helping another customer catch up on a big class she missed, so 1 missing item was pretty good, considering!

I'm hoping my out-of-town customers will enjoy this card that I designed while on my retreat at Gardom Lake:


I really love the colour scheme and the playful design.  Of course, the Feel Goods Stamp Set has some awesome sentiments.  To get the two colours on the one stamp, I used Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight. The background stamp is called Distressed Dots and it is inked up in Daffodil Delight ink, the same colour as the card stock.  And I'm sure you've seen enough of the Honeycomb Embossing folder to recognize it anywhere and here it is in Basic Gray.  I love the look of the Naturals 7/16" Trim Ribbon with this design!

The little flower embellishing the sentiment was created using the Boho Blossoms punch twice, once on Basic Gray card stock and once on Daffodil Delight, then mixing the colours and adding a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and a little bow of linen thread.  

On another note, I wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up is offering a basic On-Line Stamping class that you can access here.

It is $17.95 and you can download it to your own computer and go through it at your leisure.  Here is the product description:
Learn innovative ways to get the most out of your supplies (from stamps to the Big Shot) with clever tips and all the techniques you need to start creating with success. 
Divided into six sections focused on a variety of topics, this class includes videos, step outs, and supply lists for 30+ projects. Join the fun!

Doesn't that sound perfect?  And it is just right for beginners or seasoned stampers.  I have just downloaded it myself and I will show you a peek or two at some of the projects you can do in the days to come!

Happy Stampin'!

That is why I am no longer allowed to pack for camping trips. The list of things I forget is huge (Not to mention the list of things I leave behind on purpose, thinking that we can 'rough it' without them).
