Summer Event Schedule...please mark your calendars now!

I'm excited to share my MONTHLY EVENT SCHEDULE
for this upcoming Summer! May and June are so jam-packed
for me, that I've had to re-arrange some of the dates I had
previously advertised (so, I'm sorry about needing
to make those changes)!

What you see below are the correct dates and times!
I'm also including images of each of the scrapbooking kits
we'll be working with each month (below). Remember,
local customers receive an additional 4th layout (designed
by me), so you get to make 8 pages total with your kit
for just $32. All cards are optional and cost extra.
The 4-5 card designs I'm offering during each month
($2 each) will also feature the same paper collection
(with coordinating stamps) and I am usually able to share
photos of the cards we'll be making about a week or two
before I offer them each month (so keep an eye out for my
Facebook posts and reminders). I hope you will plan to
discover and grow your creativity with us this Summer
and join us for the fun very soon!

Classic Summer Bash Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Classic Summer Bash S1805

If you've just arrived here from
KATHY's BLOG then you are on the correct path.

If you get lost along the way, you can find
a complete list of all of the participating
consultant blogs here on MELINDA's BLOG.

First, I'm sharing this standard-size card I created using
the stamp of the month, plus papers from TWO different
paper collections - Beautiful Friendship X7233B and
Postcard Perfect CC5181 (available this month only, while
supplies last)! The patterned papers I used from the Postcard
Perfect paper collection include the polka-dotted vellum and
wood-grain papers you see here. All other papers are from
the Beautiful Friendship paper packet. The ink colors I used
include: Black Archival, Canary, Sapphire, Smoothie, and a
Leaf Green marker to color in the leaves. I did also use this
cute little sentiment stamp...Celebrate (M1188).
Finally, here's a quick tip to use when adhering your
vellum paper...use tiny dots of glue on the back side of
each of the printed polka-dots and then your glue is less
likely to show and be seen through the vellum.

Next, here's a look at all of the images
included in this FUN Summertime stamp set:

Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using this
set of stamps by visiting HALEY's BLOG next!
