We survived the time with our granddaughters and their mom visiting, and after a couple of hours the house was back to normal – but all too quiet. We missed their cute giggles and laughter, the lively bounces through the house, and yes, even the little squabbles that come with siblings. But we will see them again in a couple of weeks as we head to New Orleans for the Leadership Conference Back Stage and now it’s time to get back into the normal swing of things. Back to a somewhat normal schedule which includes posts, fb lives, and classes. Structure and schedules work for me!
Tonight is the Monday Stamp ‘n Sip group and we are going to be working with the blending brushes and the masks found in the catalog. Have you ever tried the masks produced by Stampin’ Up? They add a fun wow factor to your paper crafting, but it is easy to forget they are available when creating cards and projects. This month we are doing a product based class where I ordered their supplies ahead before the Butterflies and Blooms mask retired with the past catalog. But don’t be surprised if they show up in a clearance refresh sometime!!!
Today’s Card Using The Artistic Masks From The Annual Catalog!
I needed a couple of special Thank You cards, AND I also needed a break from Christmas DSP and the red/green color combo so “work smarter, not harder: comes into play! Take the blending brushes/mask idea from tonight’s group and pair with my card needs to give me the focus for my FB LIVE and website! New color combination, use of the stamp set Shaded Summer and coordinating dies, a fun technique and we create today’s card!

Happenings From July:
July was a busy month of activities and I want to share them with you throughout the week, beginning with the marriage of our Stamp ‘n Sip gal Heather. We were able to celebrate with her and husband Miles as they were married on a wonderful night! Cooler temperatures made the outdoor wedding perfect, and the country setting was exactly what they wanted to celebrate their wonderful day. The majority of our stamp ‘n sip girls attended and partied together. The perfect gathering of family and friends for a beautiful ceremony followed by delicious food!
Until next time, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!Product List
