Flamingo Lingo Just Because

The more I play with the Flamingo Lingo stamp set the more I like it.  This little guy has so much pizzazz.  I used the Back to Black designer paper on these cards to help her/him "pop" off the page.  The put a piece of Whisper White cardstock inside the card and I stamped a row of three flamingo on the inside of the card to help dress up the card.  LOVE IT!!

Just Because Flamingo LingoThe Flamingo Lingo stamp set is what I'm using for this month's Stamp of the Month class — have you signed up yet?  Wednesday, July 9th is the deadline — want the class on the go — I am happy to mail you the stamp set and the supplies to complete the four cards we make in class.  You will have to use your own inks to complete the card.  Just send me an email and I'll send you all the details.

Stampin’ Sisters Retreat 2015

It's time to sign up for Stampin' Sisters Retreat 2015 — this will be our 9th Annual Stamp Retreat Weekend.  We have 60 wonderful ladies gathered together for an entire weekend of stamping fun.  My sister, Tina Rappe and I design, cut and prep all of the projects for you for the weekend.  Last year we had 11 different projects — a mini scrapbook, something like 50 cards, a tin box and dividers for your card organization, a purse that held 6 note cards.  Everyone was pleased with all of the projects they took home.

Of course there was a little gift at their table spot each morning, lunch provided on Saturday.  It truly is a full weekend of stamping fun.

How would you like to join us this year?  Registration opens to our customers at 7:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 8th.  What, you aren't a customer yet, check back on July 15th to see if we still have openings available — we open registration up to everyone on the 15th.

Contract me for more information — hope to see you at retreat this year.

Flamingo Lingo — Tickled Pink

 It seems Flamingos are all the rage this summer.  Stampin' Up! is following the trend.  Every year Stampin' Up! designs a stamp set which they donate $3 for every stamp set sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  This year's stamp set is called Flamingo Lingo and it is a lot of fun to play with. 

Every month I have a Stamp of the Month Class where I feature one stamp set — the class fee is the cost of the stamp set and you come and make four different cards using this one stamp set. 

I like to start our new Stampin' Up! with kind of a service project — my July Stamp of the Month Class will feature the Flamingo Lingo stamp set.  So you get a wonderful stamp set, come make FOUR great cards and you are making a $3 donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. 

This is one of the cards we will be making at the class on Wednesday, July 23rd.  I hope you'll join me — let's make a difference together.
