Greetings my Peeps!
Ahhh, the days of summer! Delightful, and here in San Diego, it hasn't been too bad! The June Gloom is gone by 9am and the days are perfect low 70's in temperature. This is what San Diego is all about!
I held my Crafting Gals Sunday group on the 10th, and used this gathering as my mini catalog launch! Here is my small display table, as most of my June order had just arrived on Friday! Eeek! I displayed the cards I had time to make from my May Pre-order, the stamps and DSP and punch, didn't show up in the picture…oh well…
I want to thank all of the lovely ladies that I CASE'D for my show – with all that was going on here at home, my creative side of the brain was hard pressed and not working well…Thank you to Tatiana Creative, Gloria Plunkett, Dani Dziama, Karen Barber, Denita Wright, Laura Allen, and Randi Collins. Your creativity inspires me every day! I said mini catalog launch, because I want to re-introduce the catalog in July when more can come and I will be able to have a larger display!!!
Since we weren't going to meet again until July, we decided to make patriotic small tags. These were perfect to hang on a Patriotic tree (for those of us who have a tree up all year…hint, Cathy!). But also, if you have a birthday in July – it is a cute tag for a present!
I took the idea from my friend Ginny Nemchak who does beautiful vintage, layered projects. I printed out some patriotic pictures from Ginny, sized them for the small or mini tags and the gals had various patriotic prints for backgrounds. Embellishments were glittery pipe cleaners (I think they call them something different now), bows, buttons, flowers – anything they wanted to use to dress up their tags. Here are some pictures:

As you can see, we like to eat, drink (wine!), and craft. What fun we had – looking forward to July's meeting – Christmas in July???? We will see!
For those of you who have anxiously been awaiting the NEW colors of Stampin' Blends, well, we have to wait a little longer. Per the update today, they are still "on their way". They seem to be having an extra long vacation from us using them! Ha! I will let you all know when they will be in so we can get all of the new colors! I have really had a wonderful time learning about the Blends and using them.
