Our Stamp Club Is In Rubber Stamper!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 18, 2007 in Crafts

Our stamp club, Stampers Anonymous, entered a contest in Rubber Stamper magazine some time ago. The contest challenged stamp clubs to all use the same stamp on our own card designs. The winning stamp clubs have been featured in the last three issues of Rubber Stamper, and the Nov/Dec issue has our stamp club featured on page 67.

Here is the photo featured along with the entries:

And even more exciting – three of our members had their cards featured with the article! Jennifer Coles, Frani Finocchario and Denise Mennella all have beautiful cards shown along with our photo and description – congratulations, ladies!

Here’s the text of the writeup that accompanies the article:

Stampers Anonymous formed 1 1/2 years ago in Pitman, New Jersey. The 12 members meet on the second Wednesday of the month at their SU demonstrator’s home and a rotating member brings the snacks. Many of them are new to stamping, so a new technique, product or project is introduced at each meeting and everyone does a make-and-take. They’ve traded ATCs, gone on weekend trips, made cards for soldiers in Iraq and local senior citizens, and stamped gifts for school teachers. Recently, they started a stamping/scrapbooking ministry at Pitman United Methodist Church, and proceeds from the $5 admission charge go to Victory House for Girls, a residential home for at-risk teenage girls.

Well…the photo may be lousy, but I really like the writeup, anyway! :)


Soldier’s Scrapbook Project

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 18, 2007 in Scrapbooks

A few weeks ago, I saw a request on SplitCoastStampers for scrapbook pages.  SCS member mom2tysonnashlee was putting together a book for her cousin who is currently serving in Iraq.  She was hoping for one 8X8 page from each of the 50 states, and was still missing about 6 states (NJ being one of them).

I volunteered to help her with NJ, and just finished the page yesterday (sorry it took so long, Cara).

Each state’s page will incorporate something from that state.  I found a book with beautiful vintage postcards from Ocean City, NJ (one of our favorite vacation spots), so I decided to use one on my layout.  8X8 is not a large page, so I really didn’t have room for much else.  Here’s my page:

NJ page

I added Dazzling Diamonds to the water on the postcard and put several ribbons behind it.  I used brown chipboard to spell out New Jersey and added some yellow ribbons tacked with brads for the soldier.  I also added a small pressed yellow pansy – the yellows pick up the little bit of yellow in the postcard.

I hope they like the page…
