Stamp Club - May

Last Friday was our last stamp club for "this round'. I had such a great time with these ladies meeting once a month for the last eight months. It's always great to get together with a group of women who love doing the same thing you do!

The monthly financial commitment was $18.75 per month (8 in the group) and each woman was "hostess" for a month, earning at least Level 1 Hostess Benefits, which means FREE STAMPING GOODIES!! If you are interested in joining us, my next group will start up in October!

For our last get together, we made "punch templates" (come back tomorrow for Tuesday's Tip and you can learn more).

We also made one project together and because it was Mother's Day just two days after, I decided to make a card that would be perfect for a card for their mom! I have seen many "flower pot cards" around and when I found this tutorial by Stephanie Luman, I just had to make one!

The card slides right out of the top!

I gave the hostess (my sister) a cute little box with a pocket hand sanitizer inside.
I used the tutorial by Erica Cerwin (that girl has talent!).

Loved the stamp club! Thanks for all your hard work. You did a great job each month.
Oh, BTW when I was in my stamp room I pulled out the punch cards and used them a couple times. Great idea.

I'm totally in awe over the flower pot card you made! Seriously, one of my all-time favorites!

And all the cards from the exchange? They are ADORABLE. Definitely hoping to be back in Newberg by October, and am crossing my fingers that I might get to join you this round....
