June Stamp Club Sneak Peek!

Father's Day Card


This is a card we'll be making at our June Stamp Club.  Lovely as a Tree is my all time favorite Stampin' Up! stamp set and I love the way the card looks like there is a photo hanging on a wall, or that you are looking out through a window.  I had a different Father's Day card that we were going to make in our May Stamp Club, but had to cancel due to illness.  The card was made with retiring products, so it was back to the drawing board for me.  Let me know what you think of this card.


Supplies used:  Very Vanilla & Early Espresso Cardstock; Wood Textures DSP Stack; Early Espresso, Soft Sky, & Pear Pizzazz Classic Inks; Painter's Palette, Lovely as a Tree, & Thoughtful Banners stamp sets; Layering Ovals & Layering Squares Framelits; Linen Twine, Foam Adhesive Strips, Stampin Dimensionals, Stampin Sponge.

May Scrapbook Club Projects

Fun on the Washington Coast


A few years ago my daughter gave us a weekend trip to Astoria for a Christmas present.  We saved it for summer time and visited in July.  It happened that we were in Astoria the same weekend as the Goonies movie anniversary celebration.  This didn't mean anything to me because I'd never seen the movie, but it did mean that there were lots of people every place we went.  The motel we stayed at had about 50 copies of the movie on hand so we watched it and found it to be pretty cute.

While there we spent a whole morning in the Maritime Museum.  It was a very interesting and educational visit.  We then drove over the bridge to check out the lighthouses at Cape Disappointment.  This layout shows just a few highlights of our fun that day.  The raccoon met us at our car in the parking lot and was very cute in his begging abilities.  I didn't give him any food, but he still didn't mind posing for a photo op.



Supplies used:  Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla cardstock; Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Garden Green classic ink pads; High Tide & Brushstroke Alphabet stamp sets; Lots of Labels Framelits; Basic Black Stampin Write Marker.

Wedding Album


Randal and I were married on January 1, 2009, in the home of a friend.  It was a very small wedding, with only a few friends and family in attendance.  This layout shows just a few of the many fun photos that were taken that day.
