Events - Stamp Club & Girls Scouts

So much has kept me from my blog and my stamp room the past couple of days.  Now all I want and need to do today is create!  But I did want to stop in with a quick share.

First, I wanted to share a couple of cards made by members of my technique/product club.  I encourage the gals to stamp during the month and they are beginning to amaze me.  Many of them were new to stamping beginning in November and others had a little experience. It just tickles me to death that they are using their products and they are creating such wonderful projects .  They do know it's ok for show and tell to use what products they have at home so you may not recognize some products because they are not Stampin' Up!

They are gradually building their collection of Stampin' Up! products and have a difficult time not wanting it all!   But that's what joining the club is all about.  You place a minimum order each month and class is free. It's a way to fill your wish list and not break the bank.  If you are local (Jasper, Ellijay, Cumming, Canton or even's a beautiful ride) we would love for you to join us.  Click Here to check dates and times.

The first two cards were made by Cristin Bell. The first uses the Tea Shoppe stamp set from the Occasions mini.  How cute is that cup with the real tea bag.

Cristin's second card uses items from both the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.  Sometimes it is difficult to use the busy patterned paper but she did a great job by using a subdued neutral color on the focal point and sentiment.  I like the way she used the brads.

Brenda's show and tell is a tag she made for a tag swap.  It brought a lot of ohhhs and ahhhs.  It is a vintage tag that is absolutely gorgeous in real life. Can you recognize the Stampin' Up! products she used?  I think there are five.

Kim's card is a wonderful mix of pattern papers and a beautiful hummingbird image.

Today I would also like to share some pics from my last Tuesday night event.  I was invited to teach a mini album class (shared in my last post ) to a group of girls scouts in Ellijay.  What fun!  The girls and their leaders were warm and welcoming.  I loved how many of them decided to take what I was showing them and then just get creative with it.  They were a great bunch of girls and I hope we can do another project in the future.  

The entire group with me in the back.
