Facebook Group and August Class
I follow several Facebook groups, mostly stamping and card-making. I enjoy seeing what others create, and think it's a good use of social media to gather together those with like interests, but I had never considered creating a group of my own. My friend Carrie suggested I start a group for stampers in the Pueblo area as an easy way to communicate information about my monthly classes, our FSJ club, etc. So I did...and it was EASY! I don't know if many people will join, but it's a public group so others may find it. If you'd like to check it out, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/315796892088019/
I've made up the samples for the August 20th class. Seems like I always end up making 6 or 7 samples before I can decide on the three to take for class! My mom (86 and counting!) was here, and helped me pick the "winners." These are both ones that evolved from others. I used my computer to print the sentiment for the light bulbs. For class I printed four different sentiments in both landscape and portrait orientation so participants can choose what they want. The butterfly card uses pan pastels, heat embossing, and vellum - it was a lot of fun to make. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the mask for the sentiment, just to see if I could make it a bit different from the layered die.
This one I copied directly from the February Bloom Box. I loved that kit, but it came out the month before I signed on as a coach. I bought the stamp set as soon as it came out. I love that the stamps are available three months after they debut in the kit - and hate that I had to wait THAT LONG, lol!!
