Well school is back and I now have two little people making the daily trek to school. And pfft to those people who wanted to know what I will be doing now that I am a "lady of leisure". Obviously these people have no idea of the drama that is my little family and lifestyle. Sigh.
I am getting back into the swing of clubs and classes for 2011. I have two day stamp clubs running this year... there is one spot left in one of them, but the other is full. The available spot will be a Wednesday 11am spot, every second month. I also have a few spots left in my evening stamp club. Once again this will be every second month, on a night to be decided (last year we ran on a Tuesday night, but will wait to see what suits the majority of the group).
For anyone who is wondering what Stamp club is all about, it is a regular get together of the same small group (6 people) and the minimum spend on SU product each time is $50. The idea is that each time we have a $300 workshop and each member gets their turn at receiving the hostess benefits. We make a project each time - something a bit special that I dont make in regular workshops. So if you would like to join a regular group of like-minded people and spread your spending out over a 12 month period, this could be just your thing. For more info, or to join a group (day or night) just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Stamp clubs are held at my home on the Central Coast. Remember I only have one day spot left at this point.
In the meantime enjoy my little Owl card... this one uses the "Punch Bunch" stamp set (which is one of the free-with-$100-purchase sets available til the end of March). I had a customer request a "Bright and Happy card", and this was the result. Like it?

Yes, I know, not everyone goes for the romantic notion that is Valentines Day. But I like any excuse to come up with cards that just say "I love you!". I don't think that they should be restricted to one day a year however! EVERY day is a good day to tell significant people in your life that they mean the world to you!
My daughter presented me with a heart that she made for me. And I made a few cards of my own. I wanted to show you one of the cards I made...
Such a simple little card... I did this one at my weekend workshops and everyone loved it. (Well no-one told me they didn't, so I will take that as a compliment and twist it for my own advantage!) Here is the full card:
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Black, Regal Rose
Ink: Black, Real Red, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzaz
Stamps: Punch Potpourri (heart), Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Other: Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, Word Window Punch, Full Heart punch, Basic Rhinestones, Black Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Snail, Sponges, Blender pens
Dont forget if there is ever a need you have for papercraft products, or to attend a class, contact me at email@example.com

Again I have been playing with the beautiful "Bliss" stamp set (one of our free sets with the current SAB promotion) and thought you might like to see what I've been making. These have been my workshop cards for recent workshops, and I love how simple they are. But no-one says that simple cant be elegant, right?
I originally made the sample card in Baja Breeze, but then changed it to Blushing Bride. I've now done both, and cant pick my favourite.
Here it is again close up.
I also wanted to start letting people know that we have stamp clubs beginning this month. I have evening and day stamp club spots available. What is a stamp club? Well basically its where you come along to my house every second month, and you get to make a project and meet with the same group of wonderful people. Over the past couple of years we have made some fantastic projects! Each member commits to spend $50 at each club get together, and that way we always have a minimum of $300 for a workshop. Each member takes their turn at being the hostess - which means that you get the benefits (a minimum of $30 to spend and at least one free stamp set) for next to no effort because all you have to do is turn up and spend $50! Each hostess brings a plate when it is their turn to host too. The club runs for 1 year, so we get together 6 times in all. If you need any more information, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org We have only a couple of days spots left at time of writing this. So dont miss out!
I think the best thing about stamp clubs is the friendships that form within them.. certainly that has been the case for me, but the girls that come along tell me the same thing.
I hope you enjoy these cards, and if you have been looking for a way to get creative on a regular basis, and spread out the cost of your purchases, then contact me about Stamp Club!
