This week I held an ole' time favorite event called a Stamp Camp.  We did three projects featuring the beautiful sneak peak Fresh Cut Stamp Set  and the Occasions Mini Tart & Tangy.  I want to thank those that came out on such a beautiful evening to enjoy some fun stamping!  Here are the projects we made.  We will say goodbye to Tart & Tangy June 30th so if this has been on your wish list be sure and give me a call by noon June 30, that is also the last day to order the sneak peak Fresh Cut & note card special.  Call for more details.

What could be better than your 30 year old son coming over and wanting to stamp!  Yesterday was our son and his wife's Maria 9th wedding anniversary.  They recently moved back to Minnesota and our city, which has been a joy in itself.  It is so fun to have them pop in for a visit here and there.  Yesterday he stopped by and asked if he could stamp a card and so off to my stamp room we went.  He looked through some cards for inspiration and this is the card he stamped. 

Paul's Card copy

The card uses the "hearts" from Year after Year which will retire and no longer be available when the new catalog is released August 11.  It will also be sad to say good-bye to the currant In-Colors, but never fear new ones will appear! 

DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO STOCK UP ON THE IN COLORS BEFORE THEY ARE GONE.  These are more than likely available only while supplies last so order them today ink pads, ink refills, paper and ribbons before they are gone.

This is definitely one stamp set you won't want to miss!  Most of you know that my work is usually cased (copy and share everything).  This weekend the Fresh Cut stamp set set off a creative frenzy like I have never experienced.  It all started of course with casing some great ideas, and then my creative juices just started to flow.  It was an exciting experience and it just wouldn't't't stop.  So if you are in the mood to be moved call or email me today to get this awesome set.
