Pre-Convention Stamp Camp






These are my favorite projects from Stamp Camp today! They are all beautiful! (these are just my favorite)

#1 Butterfly Pansie Wristlett by Gretchen Barron - totally cute! and not difficult to make. Ok, I have to admit, when I reached Gretchen's table I was star struck! I love her work and think she is incredibly talented.
#2 Scallop Circle Card by Sandi Maciver, Carole Anne Sluchinski, and Lee Conrey - the monochromatic color scheme keeps this card elegant looking, and fun to assemble. Once again, star struck! I love her creative work and she is a real joy!
#3 Butterfly Box and Note Card set by Virginia Killmore - This little set is just so adorable! Love the color combinations and the cute little size. Perfect for a hostess gift! When I arrived at Virginia's table I knew that I was in for a treat! She did a demo last night that I will certainly be passing along to my downline! Again, incredibly talented lady.
#4 Stationary Set by Judy Garza and Linda Pugh - You use one sheet of 81/2" x 11" card stock as your holder for your cards and envelopes. This would be perfect Mother's Day gift, or a Teach appreciation gift. It also uses one of my favorite stamp sets 'Watercolor Trio'. Judy and Linda are super nice! The 'idea' is simple, but oh so useful!
#5 Pizza Box and Note card set by Patty Edwards. This little pizza box holds four 3" x 3" note cards and envelopes. Once again, uses one of my favorite stamp sets! Patty is funny, warm and talented! I'm glad that I met her.
#6 Picnic Basket by Nicole York - This project was both fun to make and not too difficult. Nichole is a wonderfully talented and patient woman. Nicole has an unique use of colors. I love her intuition and her creative style.

Ok, Convention starts tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to it! This is my first one, and I'm as anxious as a child in Disney Land. Thank you for taking the time to see what I have to post. Please leave a comment, as they sure do bring a bit of sunshine to my life!

I love them! My favorite are the butterflies (blue/craft/vanilla…love that combo).

I am glad you are having so much fun already…and convention hasn’t even started! I am looking forward to hearing all about it.

Have a blast!

I took to heart your favorite color combo and went to play. Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I used the Artistic Etchings. It was a gorgeous look!! Have fun at convention. I've only been to one, but several regionals. I wish I was there to buy the print tote!!! Oh, I will be searching for it after convention!! ENJOY!!! Trisha in Red Wing, MN
