My Summer Smooches Card Class

Hi guys and gals!

What a super-gorgeous day here in my small little suburb north of Boston! Lovin' this weather!
Last night I had my Summer Smooches card class -- I have to say, there are not enough days in the week, or weeks in the year to promote all of the wonderful stamp sets available in the Spring Mini Catalog that retires next Monday, or the stamp sets in the giant Idea Book and Catalog that finishes up on May 31st! Couple that up with the Retired Accessories list that was just released today and I'm full of anticipation for the new catalog that I'll get a sneak peek of on May 7th!

I had a lot of help in designing this card set -- the back right card was totally inspired by Chris Smith (From My Ink Pad to Yours) -- I just changed the indigo ribbon to Calypso Coral. Other cards were inspired by swaps that my upline received in a group swap she participated in. I changed a few things here and there, but many of these cards might look familiar to demonstrators out there! I thank everyone for the creativity -- without their input, I don't know that I'd know where to start!

I don't have individual photos, but if you're interested in making these cards, I've made a few kits up as well! Contact me and you're welcome to come to Open Stamping sessions to re-create these beauties!!

On a somewhat sad note, the Retiring Accessories list is out and quite comprehensive! Click on this link to see the whole list (minus the craft scissors and paper snips which were included in error!). Then, email me or place an order through my website to get what you want before it's gone!! You have until the end of May to order retiring stamps -- that list can be seen here! Don't forget that the Simply Adorned jewelry line and the Decor Elements will be completely discontinued!
