LOVE is in the Air - January TOUR DE FREAKS


Love is in the air.  February is closing in fast... so now is the time to get ready for Valentine's Day. 

Welcome to our January TOUR DE FREAKS. You may have come from Mary Brown's blog.   Mary  is such a great stamper.  Hope you enjoyed her projects.

My first card was made using two new stamp sets in our Occasions Catalog.  I wanted to make this a pastel Valentine.  I cut out the two largest fish and popped them up.  On the pink girl fish. I used crystal effects on her glasses.  On the boy fish, I used Red Glitter Glue on the heart and Crystal Effects.  I like how it turned out.

Santa Claus Comes to Stamp Camp North

At our December Stamp Camp, Santa came to visit.  He is sweet on Julie Whitfield.  Here is a picture of him sneaking a kiss.  The funny thing is Santa has a southern accent.  Juli is lucky to be married to Santa.  Lucky girl...well, I'll  say, he is lucky, too.  We served a fresh turkey and the trimmings to our campers.  It was a fun day.  All of the guests  received at least one door prize and a prepay gift...as well as 10 great cards to take home.  We are lucky to have Juli Whitfield as our leader.  

This next picture is of some of the campers making cards.  We have our camp at the Westminster Elks Lodge so have tons of room to spread out.  I think everyone went home happy.
