YOUR SCRAPPY STRIP CARD

I saw a card technique recently that enthralled me and I finally found the time to watch the video demonstrating the technique.  Bruno and Kylie Bertucci (#loveitchopit) are a husband-wife Stampin’Up Demonstrator team in Australia.  Bruno developed this technique when he wanted to create a card based on a piece of art work he and Kylie had purchased for their home.  In the video I watched, Bruno based the card he made on the tropical shirt he was wearing – the shirt he had purchased pre-Coronavirus for a planned cruise that was subsequently cancelled.  What fun!  So for August Stamp Camp, please wear something colorful and you will create a card based on your clothing and using the Scrappy Strip Technique!

And this is the end of August Stamp Camp.  To repeat from my previous post:  We are still limiting crafters to 4 per day, requiring masks and frequent hand washing.  Snacks and masks breaks will take place on the deck (weather permitting).  I am changing the start and end times to allow for a bit more time to wipe down stamps, inks, etc. between uses.  Please bring your patience.  Cost remains the same – $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card. 

August Stamp Camp:  Thursday August 6 from 10 am to 4 pm; Friday August 7 from 10 am to 4 pm; and Saturday August 8 from 9 am to 4 pm,  Please let me know if these dates/times conflict with your schedule and we can develop an alternative.   In order to limit the dates to 4 crafters, please notify me as soon as possible with the date you are coming and which cards you wish to do.

September Stamp Camp: Thursday September 3 from 10 am to 4 pm; Friday September 4 from 10 am to 4 pm; Saturday August 5 from 10 am to 4 pm.  Mark your calendars now.

Hopefully you have your holiday occasions catalog.  Mine arrived yesterday.  Please notify me if yours does not arrive as I have paid for these deliveries.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
