Are you all READY !!!!

It's time STAMPERS !!

WOW, yep, as much as I hate to say it, SUMMER is coming to an end.  The kids are going back to school, routine will begin our days again.  But that's not all bad news, NO! NOT AT ALL, along with routine comes our once a month regular CARD CLASSES. 

Starting with     SEPT 13th  TUESDAY group @ 1 PM

Then   on     Sept 18th for the SUNDAY group @ 1 pm

We will be competing 4 cards and the fee is $ 20.00  - you will be learning the MASKING technique and the cards will be of a variety, BUT of course there will be ONE  HALLOWEEN themed card.  Stampers - please bring your paper trimmers, as you will be doing some cutting of the cards yourselves.  NO FEAR, I will be right by your side, and it won't be a huge amount.  Just some basics.  Lol  Also, remember your scissors, adhesives, etc all the regular paper crafting materials we use in class - ( your stamp kits )

This class is to get everyone back into the swing of things because in October we'll have the STAMP CAMP, a day of card, 3D items, that may be given as gifts or maybe something special for yourself.  There's lots planned for the coming months stampers, so lets get those inky fingers ready!!

So just to show all of my fellow stampers, my summer wasn't all work and gardening I have a few cards I'll share.  I won't post to many as they are more spectacular in person and you'll see a LOT when you come to class.  Plus it takes forever to upload these out here on the SHORE.  When you are here for card class you'll have LOTS & LOTS to see as  I just have to share some of the NEW, HOT ITEMS from the NEW CATTY as well the NEW HOLIDAY MINI, which by the way I have one for all of you to drool over.

So here are a few favorites :

This is a card I made my Mother In-Law for her Birthday Day using the Shaker Frames, which you 'll see in the Holiday Mini.  There are wonderful and you can use the Shaker Frames any where on the card you like.  They can be filled with little beads, glitter, what ever your heart desires.  Of course there always has to be a little glam so I used our rhinestones on the flower.

This one is also a new stamp set and it comes with three other lovely stamps.  They are wonderful for water coloring which is what I did here.  The set is called Always Thankful and this ones is perfect for FALL. 

Here is a FUN set using one of the NEW HOSTESS set that you can now purchase for an excellent price when you place a qualifying order.

I also made a little gift box and a couple of treats are inside this lovely little mini box, which I later found out it fits an AFTER DINNER MINT perfectly.  What a lovely way to finish a Thanks Giving Meal with your families.

Well I hoped you enjoyed just a couple, and I mean a couple of the new, exciting things that are here from the Mini and the NEW 2011 / 2012 Catty.  We're going to have a great time creating some of these new cards and 3D gifts.  I look forward to seeing everyone, and sharing some of our summer stories.
