Stamp Club No-Show!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Mar 22, 2007 in Cards, Crafts |

One of my stamp clubs was scheduled to have a meeting tonight – it was already re-scheduled once because of bad weather. But it’s 8:30 and no one is here (it was supposed to start at 7:00). Hmmm…I’m thinking that no one is coming tonight – I’m like the girl who throws a party and no one shows up! :(

No really – it’s okay. I managed to get a lot done in the hour I was sitting here waiting for someone (anyone!) to show up.

I’m scheduled to do a workshop on Saturday for a friend of mine, so I used the time to set up the make-and-takes.

We’ll be making an Easter card with the Never Ending Joy stamp set:

And a cute sticky-note holder:

These are SO easy to make! You start with a clear acrylic photo frame – this one is magnetic, but you can also use the kind that sits on your desk – and insert a piece of patterned paper or cardstock in whatever design you’d like. Then stick the sticky-notes right on the frame and hang it on your fridge. When the sticky-notes run out, just add another pad.

Then we’ll also make a matching beaded pen:

These are easy too – you just stamp an address label and wrap it around the pen. Then cut a piece of double-stick tape to size and add it on top. Roll the pen in some micro-beads and voila – you have a pretty pen to match the sticky-note holder. I also added a little tag to the lid (you can never over-embellish, right?).

So now I’m ready for the workshop on Saturday! Plus, my house is clean (well…the downstairs, anyway) – I pretty much only run my vacuum cleaner right before a stamp club or stamp camp. It’s so bad that when my four-year-old daughter sees the vacuum coming out of the closet, she says, “Mommy, are you having a stamp class tonight?”. And she’s usually right! Luckily for my family, I usually have a stamp club or stamp camp twice a week, on average, so the floors never get TOO bad. :)

I spent the rest of today finishing up my entries for the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Award. I may not win (I’m sure I won’t – see – there’s that enormous amount of self-confidence again), but I’m pretty happy with the stuff I made. I put a lot of time and effort into the projects – so much so that my husband said I shouldn’t send them in after I put so much into them.

To tell you the truth, I’m so tired of looking at these projects, I’m happy to send them out the door! They were a LOT of work, but I had fun doing them. Though I will still be glad to see them go out of my house and to the post office tomorrow….
