Christmas Time with Les Shoppes

Welcome Friends! I must tell you, I am longing for Christmas in July. Maybe it's the heat. Maybe it's the tradition in my little business of enjoy the Christmas in July "season." Maybe it's just the fun of Christmas at anytime. To help  satisfy my longings, I have created a couple of fun Christmas in July cards, featuring the Les Shoppes suite. 

I just love the building options with the stamps in the suite. Here I have used different techniques to create my cute Christmas home. On the card above I featured watercolor inks and beautiful Designer Series Paper as a background.

On the card below, I stamped, dry embossed, and inked the house before adding additional color with markers. I used the suite's dies to cut out the windows to allow for the watercolor house background to show.

Both cards were fun to create.

My friend Bonnie from Canada and I are hosting a Virtual Stamp Camp this Saturday with cards and a 3D project all created with the Les Shoppes Suite. You can still order the kit-less version of our virtual Stamp Camp. Contact me for details.

July Newsletter-Typos and All

The link below is for the online version of my July newsletter - typos and all. This newsletter is emailed out to those who have signed up to receive emails from me. If you would like to receive my newsletter to you inbox, please fill out the pop up form. I like to think my newsletter is normally less error filled. There seemed to be a skirmish going between my Internet connection and my newsletter provider. I finally publish what I could before it disappeared for a fourth time!

Stamp Camp Sneak Peek

Welcome Friends! If you follow me on Instagram or on my Facebook Busy with the Cricky page, you know that my friend Bonnie Sanche from Calvary, Canada and I team up three times a year for a Virtual Stamp Camp. Bonnie and I compliment one another with our design styles and we enjoy working together.

This month we have our Virtual Stamp Camp coming up on July 15th at 1:00 pm EDT. We will provide a Zoom link to those who register, as well as unlimited access to the group Facebook page. Bonnie and I will go live on Zoom, joined by whoever wants to go live with us, and teach four projects each. We will also record each of the eight project videos and will have those available forever in the FB page. We will also have print tutorials available in the FB group.
