Summer Fun

It’s hot, sunny, and time for some summer stamping and crafts.  See 3 of the 4 fun projects below we will be creating at our August 5th and 6th Summer Stamping!  The pictures are not the greatest but you will have a good idea of what we will be doing!

Fountain 1We have not done a bi-fold card in ages and ages so this month we are going to do two!   I’m not sure why we haven’t been doing this style other than the fact that you need 2 – 2 1/8” score lines instead of the normal 4 1/4” but you don’t have to worry about that as we will have the cutting and scoring done for you.  This set is from the Summer Mini and is entitled “Touch of Kindness.”  With the cute little birds on the front, I think I will have the cat image on the inside of the card, ready to pounce!  The 2 side panels have green cs – 1 side is embossed with the polka dot embossing folder, and the other panel is green DSP.  This is a very simple and cheerful card!


I just LOVE the birdhouse we will be crafting.  The coral birdhouse was my second attempt – the first attempt was crafted out of typing paper and scotch tape (done while I was on a teleconference and in listening mode).  The coral house was done correctly but at the end of a LONG day.  The lime birdhouse shows how I have “advanced” in my birdhouse accessorizing.  I’ve also done a blue one with birds on it and will post it tomorrow.  We will have several colors of card stock and designer paper you can choose from.  This is a fun project and you can make it your own!  well, the tornado siren is now going off.  Don’t know if I should continue typing or head for the basement!  Such decisions!

Swimming 2This card is titled Sunny Fun and uses the Sunny Fun stamp set from the Summer Mini.  The color is washed out but in real life, this is a darling card.   This version includes a set of flip flops from the same set.  I’ve done another version of the same card with no message and different style flip flops across the bottom border.  We will use chalks in coloring out little people and use card stock with some sponged ink on the sand and stickles on the wavy water.  I added 2 dimensionals under the second layer of waves to give the card more dimension.  My favorite part is coloring the kids and their water tubes. 

Well, it is starting to storm, and I don’t want to lose this post so I am going to sign off for tonight.  Remember that Summer Stamping is August 5th from 3 PM – 9 PM and Saturday from 9 AM – 4 PM.  Come whenever it is convenient for you.  If you are new, we will walk you through all the projects and I guarantee you will have a good time.  The cost is $10 for 4 projects.  If you think you might be coming – please drop me a line but if you decide at the last second to come, then you know you are welcome!  The only thing you have to bring is yourself!  All project materials are provided for you.

Happy Tuesday!  Rosemary Przybylski – – 630-759-3089 – 533 Emerson Circle, Bolingbrook.
