Sunshine Garden Stamp Camp!

Hello Stamping Friends!
Finally getting around to uploading the picture from my last Stamp Camp! These cards were so much fun to create with the Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' kit, envelopes, a few punches, and some of the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration Ribbon, and, of course, a variety of stamps from assorted Stampin' Up! sets!
Some of the cards, I created myself. And some of the cards were designed by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Erin Madson. In fact, her cards were the inspiration for the class. I loved her ideas, and had been wanting to present a class creating cards using Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kits.
The Simply Scrappin kits include a variety of designer paper, 12 x 12 cardstock, and coordinatig stickers. They are such a great value at $19.95 each! They are great for scrapbooking, and as you can see, creating greeting cards as well!!!
Stampers left with ten cards, ready for the next occasion. Another idea presented, was to create the cards, stamp the sentiments & punch them out with the Wide Oval Punch. Then, wait to assemble the sentiments until the occasion arose. That way, they would have just the right card for the next occasion!!! Some lucky stampers also left with some great door prizes, including stamp sets!!!
Thank you so much to all that attended camp! I am really looking forward to stamping with you again, and am already gathering ideas for the next stamp camp. If you have a stamp camp idea, please let me know. I would love to hear from you!!!
Have a great week-end, and a very blessed Easter with your families!!!
All supplies, Stampin' Up!
