June Club Projects--It's a Jubilee!

I'm excited about our Jubilee club projects featuring the Jubilee paper packet.  If you'd like to come join us for club this month, just let me know.  I have two sessions meeting on Monday, June 16, 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.  Cost to attend is a $20 minimum order. . .your materials are provided FREE!  You may choose to the layout or the cards.

I used the Jubilee Textiles and the Jubilee Assortment to create these cute little rosettes on the layout.  The stamped images come from the stamp set that's in the Jubilee Workshop and the Go.  You can order any of these items on my website,  If you order from my website, I'd be happy to e-mail you a handout with measurements for the layout!
This card design was inspired by one that Kristine Porter made.  It's so fun to mix and match the patterns from this paper pack!

If you haven't tried making a sunburst card yet, give it a whirl.  They're quite easy and a great way to use up scraps of leftover paper.   To make mine, I started with strips of patterned paper that were 1 1/4 x 5 inches.  Then I cut the strips diagonally from top corner to bottom corner (the long way) to make long triangles.  Then, I establish a starting point on my card and just glue on one triangle after another, each with its end point at the starting point.  When you've got all your strips glued on, trim around the edges of the card.

Interactive Card Workshop--June 10th or 17th

I've been having so much fun making these Interactive Cards for our class on June 10th or 17th.  If you'd like to learn how to make them, sign up to come join us.  Cost for the class is a $15 minimum order.  Class starts at 6 p.m. on both nights.

The first card is a Pop-Up Card Box (this one uses Jubilee paper and our June Stamp of the Month).

The next card we'll be learning is the Diorama Card--super easy (my kind of card).  I used some images from the Artbooking cartridge to create the scene for this card.

The third type of card we'll be learning is the Free Standing Pop-Up Card.  I've got two designs shown here, but we'll probably be doing the one with balloon for the class.

Card #4 is a card that I've seen around for a couple of years--I've just never had the chance to learn to make one on my own.  It's a Pop-out Birthday Gift Card.  It's a regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card that opens up to reveal three "stacked" gifts popping out in 3D style.  I tried several different measurements for this and finally came up with the one I liked.  I'll post them after my workshop.

June Specials!

It's a new month, and that means new specials!  We have an AWESOME Stamp of the Month for June.  "Kaboom" is filled with fun images that you can use for parties, Fourth of July, or any type of celebration.  As always, you can purchase the Stamp of the Month at its regular retail value of $17.95, or you can get it for $5 with any $50 purchase.  Either way, it's only around for the month of June, so get it before the month is gone!

Below is a Pop-Up Card Box that I made using the June Stamp of the Month.  You can learn how to make this at my Interactive Card Class on Tuesday, June 10th, or Tuesday, June 17th, 6 p.m.  Sign up today!  For my long-distance friends, I hope to put some general how-to info up on my blog once I finish making all my cards for the Interactive Card Class. 

Our other special running for the month of June gives you a chance to purchase several collections of products at a discount when you have a $50 purchase.  The collections are valued at over $50, but you can get them for $30 with a $50 purchase.  You can order on my website,

Here's a look at the bundles you can purchase.  Many of these products are retiring soon (or have already retired), so it's a great opportunity to pick up some things that you might have missed.
