Did you know there are 5 Fridays in July? So you have 5 chances to do Friday Fav's with Kimmay. Make sure you set that day aside to come in between 10 am and 2 pm each Friday, to do the M&T kit or take along. Here is the first page for the 4th. of July theme, which will be offered on Friday, July 1st. (which is also Canada Day.)
Rebecca is back on Wed. June 29 for another Iris Folding Card Class. I don't have samples (since I have been traveling so much lately), but I know you will enjoy making cards with her. So call to book your space. 490 4790
Some kids classes are starting soon..........check back next week for beading, paper crafts and cross stitch.
What craft would you like to learn? Let us know and we will try to find an instructor for it.
I won these "goodies" at Stamping Around Ohio. The Tomato set from Kitchen Sink Stamps, was given to everyone, as it was part of the class by Maria. I have to admit I had only tried to use the Kitchen Sink Stamps once before, but I am hooked now.
Our first attempt (as a group of 3 at our table), was using some orange colors for tomatoes. We agreed we liked those the best, but wanted to try the red colors too. Look at the recipe card, my first tomato stamp!
Just got back from Stamping Around Ohio and have some cute things to show off in the studio.
Tammy Hershberger, who works and teaches at Toyrifix, was our hostess (and teacher), and the one who brought all the other talented ladies to her store.
Toyrifix is a cute scrapbooking store located within a toy store, in Smithville OH. Here is front of store. I will post photos of the cute things we made, as soon as possible.
Maria Colosimo, is Kitchen Sink Stamps and she explained her multi step stamps, which are very impressive. I came back with the one I have wanted for awhile now. Trees......lovely trees.
I also got to keep the tomato stamp we used for our "salsa stamping class". Now I have to learn how to make salsa, so I can give the label with it. Julie Masse, Christina Fischer, and Barbara Anders also had great projects and new items to show.
It was a wonderful, relaxing, motivating and did I mention fun as well! Lovely ladies to spend a couple of days with.
Let's hope I have convinced them to come to our area in Indiana. I may have to stalk them for awhile...ha
Are you wanting something to do since school is out? How about a class in scrapbooking?

Stamping Around Ohio is this weekend, with Kitchen Sink stamps. My family is very near there, so a bonus for me. Then next week it's COPIC certification in Lexington. Mary is certified now.......wohooo. Now the obsession begins.
This week we will be honoring Father's Day with a M&T that is a male theme. If you would like to change the greeting, that is fine too. This is a Flourishes stamp. I just love those screw shaped brads. Also used is cork "paper", from Karen Foster, that has an adhesive backing.
I am very happy to pass along an article about card making in today's paper. The lady who wrote it, (Lynda Heines), has a blog that she posted it on. It may be online by now, but I thought I would pass along her blog version.
Her editor was "sure my name was Dottie", so it seems like this version goes between both names. Oh well, part of being "famous" I guess.
It is almost time for Saturday Stamping Group. Are you a stamper, or would you like to learn?
This Saturday is our once a month stamping day, dedicated to stampers. You can be a scrap booker or card maker and use stamps. Maybe you only do 3D items, but if you love to stamp-join us...so do we!
10 am to 4 pm for $3.00 a person. Anita is offering a M&T this week and it is lovely. She has several colors to choose from, and this is only one of her samples. The round image is like a collage (looks like quilting).
You may call to let us know you are coming (and we will make sure there is a kit for you to do).
Stay all day, or part of a day , and work on your current projects.
