- I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

April...er, May Stamp Camp!
Photos of the goodies we made at the Stamp Camp! First two are a Bind-it-All card keeper. We used chip board to make the covers and large envelopes for the months. Julie showed me one she made last February. I just got the pic posted first! Too cute, huh? It was a labor intensive project, especially when we were sharing only one piece of equipment!! Yowza!!
So, the other projects are easy-breezy! Check out the cute flower pin! We used the mega scalloped circle punch with white shrink plastic, stamped with palette inks, heated (or should I say melted?) with a heat gun and ...bingo, bango...instant pin. Lisa and Christy made theirs with the cows from An 'udder Birthday. Should have got pics of those cuz they were absolutely adorable!! I bet you can't tell that the orange are 2nd & even 3rd generation stamped! Just a reminder that colors really intensify when they are shrunk!!
The blue birthday box is a 2-5-7-10 box. So, score-cut-stamp-fold-punch and GO! Really easy project, especially with a Scor-Pal! We used the Extreme white gel pen to make the dots, but I have to share that they don't POP as much as I would have liked. I'll have to find out what works best for brilliant white dots. Maybe a paint marker? Hmmmm..... If you know, let me in on the secret!!
We also made a matchbox mini book copied tit for tat from Heather's blog entry on Feb. 13. WAY too cute for words!!! Check it out here.
That should give you enough to ponder for the weekend, which is when I hope to be creating more stuff to post next week!!
