March_top_ten_4 My April workshops featured this Shadow Box card that I learned to make on Splitcoaststampers click here for complete directions  The April Make and Take features the "Doodle This" stamp set that is featured in the Spring Mini Catalog on page 18.   Demonstrating how to use the aqua painters with re inkers on watercolor paper gives one the feeling of creating a masterpiece of art in such an easy way.   Soon we will have to say goodbye to our currant "In Colors" I will truly miss Cool Caribbean!

Polka_dot_paisley_bw Black and white is always classic.  We often forget this simple idea and every stamper usually starts out with a Basic Black ink pad and White Cardstock.  The 3 x 3 card was a recent make and take at March Workshops.  Stampin'Up! has the fun 3 x 3 envelopes that make great little gift enclosures.  Make up a batch and put into this cut little 3 x 3 holder as a fun gift for a friend.  Download 3_x_3_card_holder_pattern.pdf

Who would have thought I would earn five SU cruises!  We are looking forward to enjoying some warm weather, time to relax and seeing new places.  The Panama Canal has always been a place both Tom and I hoped to visit some day.  We will be in Panama City on my Birthday what a gift! 

Each cruise I make about 20 6 x 6 – 2 page spreads to swap — then I come home print and crop my photo's to put on the pages.  It is so fun to share the scrapbook as soon as I get home…while I am still so excited.
