Here are my projects from club this month. I used 2 stamps that will be retiring and today is the last day to get them. I will miss the pick a petal stamp set. Even though I didn't use it too much it is so cute and very versatile. One of my club ladies as she was stamping her pages realized that this stamp would make really cute butterflies.
We also used a new technique I call it the tye-dye effect. You take a baby wipe and drop a couple of drop of ink in different colors on it to create your own "ink pad". Just make sure to clean it between each inking, so the colors stays crisp and clean.
Here is the card. I can't believe this stamp is leaving I have always loved the cute fruit and the fun summer feeling this sets gives to any projects. Mmmm, how delicious summer tastes.

I am going to have a class on July 12 6pm my house. The cost will be $15 for 16 4"x4" cards (no envelopes). If you are interested in coming you can leave a comment or email/call me.

Just a couple weeks ago I was rocking Mav in his room and thought it looked a little bare. All we had were the cute ABC blocks over the changing table. So I decided I would make a banner to hang around him room. I used the pennant die cut (which is now on the last chance list at a discounted price) and also used some solid and some pattern paper that matched the colors on the blocks. Another thing I made was the mobile. I also used a retiring die cut, I think this one is called the ornament die cut. I cuts out 4 circles at a time which you fold into these really cute 3D spheres. Mav loves looking at it especially when we twist it up and let it spin. So cute.
