We had a most excellent time with our Stamping/Card workshop this week in Mandeville, taught by Melissa F. Someone brought some wine, there were chips and dip, most delicious brownies, and we had all sorts of fun! We created 4 cards, and Melissa demonstrated different uses for the same stamp. A lot of people think you can only do one thing with a stamp, but stamps are so versatile and there are so many creations you can come up with, with only one stamp!
Beginning in August, we will have a monthly card workshop demonstrating different techniques, and creating different cards. Stay tuned and keep checking the website calendar for the dates. We will still be having the Basic Stamping classes, in addition to these card workshops, so if you're unsure of your stamping and card-making skills but want to come to the workshops, sign up for the Basic Stamping class. I will show you how to stamp properly and get a great, crisp impression EVERY time you stamp, as well as teach you about the different uses for all 5 different types of inks (makes a BIG difference!), and the proper care of your stamps so they will last a long time.
Tonight we will be at Pelican Park, and Melissa F. will be hosting a workshop in which you create a single page layout, and it is superb! Actually, Felix designed it, and I LOVE it because you can turn it sideways and upside down and the page will still work, in any orientation! It begins at 6:00 PM.
Every Friday, beginning tonight through September 19th, we will be having a workshop at Pelican Park. You can find out more about their crop on their webite, www.PelicanPark.com. We will have a limited amount of supplies available for purchase at the beginning of each of the crops.
We are very excited about our upcoming attendance at the Natchez Scrap-N On The River next week!!! We have been getting phone calls and e-mails every day from people who will be attending, making requests for products they would like us to bring. If you have a special request, please call or e-mail ASAP so we can make sure to have it in, in time to bring with us.
Until next time, happy scrapping!
