Oh my gosh, what a great weekend I had! Saturday was filled with lots of laughs at the surprise birthday party we threw for my friend Leslie. Since she turned 50, we decided to also dress up 50's. What a blast we had-we even had 50's music playing! Good friends, food, and fun! You just can't beat that! Don't we look just adorable in our 50's outfits??Then along came Sunday. It was the first meeting with my new Club girls. If you want to join, it is not too late. Once a month we get together for a girl's day of creating. I design a layout for you to make for free and then you just work on your own projects till whenever. I will try to always show you some new technique so you are learning something along the way, too. In return, you just order $20 in product each month from me. Each month, one of the club members is the 'hostess' (although it is always held at my house). She then earns the hostess rewards. If she wants to have a party (or just get outside orders) during her month to boost the sales and, in turn, boost the hostess rewards, she is certainly welcome to do that.
Here is the layout we created yesterday. It uses our new Twitterpated paper pack along with the new felt die-cuts. Remember I talked about teaching a new technique? Well, this Paint Brush Inking technique is shown in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book on page 21. It shows you how to use reinker to paint you stamp and then stamp it. Well, I have discovered an easier way to do the same thing. Just ink up your stamp like normal and then use a dry paint brush over the ink to create whatever pattern you wish. I just ran mine straight across the stamp a couple of times. Very easy, but I love the look. I just love this leaf from the Many Thanks stamp set.Happy Scrappin'
