We're HOME! The Schueler clan spent a relaxing week sans internet and cell phone service in the Wilds of Northwestern Ontario. So no blogging or stamping last week, just a LOT of fishing and books. It was a nice change of pace but I'm certainly happy for the conveniences of home, as are the teens. No texting while fishing and not for lack of trying. :) I will say the weather was SIGNIFICANTLY cooler up north. My studio air conditioner is working overtime this week. But if it's this hot then I don't feel one iota of guilt when I'm not in the garden. I'd prefer to work up a sweat with stamps, in that case.
One of the things I'm working on this week is a set sampler done with the stamp set, For the Birds. I need to make six designs with this set and then several of my demo friends and I swap. They use different sets and voila, lots of samples. So this is one of the cards that I've created for the swap. (we also used it for Hostess Club last week. I would say that I killed two birds with one stone but that just seemed so WRONG, considering the subject matter!)
It's a fun fold called the Double Dutch Fold. The top flap flips up and the two bottom flaps open up like a dutch gate, hence the name…ok the card is WAY cooler in person. Make sure you stop by on Thursday, June 21st to see it in person! I'll have it out during my Catalog Kick Off -It's too cute.
Remember – Catalog Kick Off – Thursday, June 21st. Stop in anytime between 2pm-8:30pm and make a couple of ADORABLE cards, pick up your catalog, check out my swap cards, shop the retired rummage stuff that I cleaned out last week, check out the specials etc, etc!
email or call me if you are planning on attending, I'll make sure I save a catalog for you! (I ordered plenty but you JUST never know.)
