Last weekend we celebrated the 7th birthday of our grand-daughter Kamili. My how time flies. It was an artist paint party (Kamili's choice) and a lot of fun. Here's our birthday girl in her beret - already to create something great!
There were about 15 little girls 10 and under there and Heidi wanted to each create this painting below. I thought she was crazy - but.....

So here's the cute little project we made at club this month - a Magic Treat Holder - its a great way to present a treat to someone you want to have a great day! It's a simple long, thin, box - closed on one end only. Punch a hole throw both layers on the open end, and decorate how you like.

As promised here's the card we made with the Chalkboard Technique at club. I think it's great!! For this card I used the old SU Winter White emboss powder and our gel pen for the doodles. The stamp set is Layered Labels and it works perfect for this technique.

This month we did the Chalkboard Technique. This technique is all over the web - you tube - Pinterest -and more. And it seems like each person has their own way of doing the technique - which is cool - you can find the way you like best. But no matter what way you do - it looks great!

Today I'm sharing my final card from our last Cards Stamp Camp - you may recognize it from this earlier post - http://crazystampinglady.blogspot.com/2013/08/club-hostess-gift.html. It is the same card that I made a set of for my Club hostess. I pinned it on Pinterest, and got so many repins that I was sure it was a hit. So decided to make it again - just in Tangerine Tango this time.

Today I'm sharing the second card we did at our last cards class. This was our masculine birthday card (although I wouldn't mind getting it). The Happy Birthday sentiment is from "Delightful Dozen."

Today I want to share a beautiful card we made at last week's Cards Stamp Camp. It follows an elegant layout I saw on pinterest - white on white - with vertical and horizontal score lines for a subtle touch. The colors are discontinued Regal Rose and Melon Mambo; and Wild Wasabi and Old Olive.

So the last few weeks Paul has had a couple Sunday's off so we wanted to take all the kiddos on a picnic - but the six older ones are hard to transport (no vehicle big enough :) So we did two picnics!! First week -the Jones kids!
Then the next week the King kids!
|Zamarah ready to slide!|
|Gramma with Paisley, Prince and Zamarah.|
|Paisley and Prince having fun!|
|Kamili, Makai and Zav ready for fun!|
|Papa rock climbing with the crew.|
|On reason we went to this park is that they have an old Railroad station there with minature trains - the kids all loved it!|
Fun days with our kiddos - glad we got the picnics in before school starts next week. See you all soon!! ~Maureen

So each month at our Technique Club we make a 3D project of some sort. This month we made these adorable little battery operated tealight birthday cakes. So cute and sweet! a strip around the tealight - and a scallop for the top and the bottom.

So this is the gift I gave to my club hostess this month. It's the great SU chevron bags closed with a decorated butterfly clothespin.

Last Friday we were able to get the kids and grandkids together and head to the beach in Ventura. The weather was great - overcast but warm. Just a really nice day for all of us.
|Papa and grandkids flying a kite|
|Our group checking out the waves.|
|Playing on the playground|
|More playing ......|
|and more playing ...|
|Kyan pretty much spent the time being held by Gramma and taking in all the action.|
Great family, great fun, great day!! Can't believe summer break is almost over! ~Maureen

So here's the greeting card we made using the technique I shared with your yesterday. For he card we used 1 1/2" painters tape instead of 1" to get the wider bands. Colors are Crisp Cantalope, Calypso Coral and Summer Starfruit. Then we stamped the flowers from Summer Silhouettes and a "Happy Birthday" verse to complete the card. Again - let me say - I LOVE this technique.

This month our technique was the "Magical Painting Tape" technique - it is all over the web and so easy. But leaves a wonderful background. Here is our 6x6" technique card for our binders. I used three colors for my background (Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo) then stamped the beautiful branch with birds from Serene Silhouettes using Staz On Black.

So I know I shared this card before when we made it at a stamp camp - but I got such a great response on it, that I decided to make it for my convention swap. I was in two organized swaps and made this card for both. I really like it - especially the color combo - and others seemed to like it also.

Okay - our second card from my Christmas Cards class this month - isn't it beautiful. I copied a layout I found on Pinterest - and made it my own. I used this pretty flower from the "Flower Shop" set - it reminded me of a Christmas rose - so I thought it was just perfect. The leaves are punched from the Bird Builder punch. The silver glitter paper adds just the right amount of bling!

Here is the first of the two Christmas cards we made at last month's Christmas Card Stamp Camp. We used some new Designer Series paper from the Holiday mini. It has the polka dots and reminded me of snowballs. We also used the new crumb cake note card envelopes - I really love this size for a quick and easy card or a fast thank you note.

So at this year's SU convention everyone was a winner!! That's right - every single person there won prize patrol and that was besides all the awesome goodies we got and the all convention give-aways!
What a fun and exciting convention for all of us. If you'd like to join my team and join us at Convention next year - just let me know!! I'd be happy to discuss all the possibilities!! ~Maureen
|Diane and Shawna|
|Jacqui and Toni|
|Vicki and Maureen|
|Then they announced that 25 LUCKY ladies - who had not yet gotten a prize would receive this - Every stamp set in the Holiday Catalog!|
|And our very own Kathy B was one of those lucky 25!!! It was her first convention and what a high note to end it on!|
|Can you see how excited she was - and we all were for her?!?|
|Since they were going to ship the stamps to their homes - they each got this great hand made card congratulating them. What a sweet keepsake.|
