Banners and Stamp Carving

Time to flex those stamping muscles! You can always click on the Events tab at the top of the blog to find a fun class or stamp camp coming your way, but here’s a little sneak peek at a few things coming soon:

Tuesday, October 15
10 a.m.
at Loni’s house in Spanish Fork, UT

A cheery welcome for holiday guests or a focal point for a mantel grouping, you can create one or both of these banners for $15 each (all supplies provided). Choose which banner you want to customize for your home (Halloween or Christmas…or both!) and let me know when registering.

If you can’t come to the class, you can order the Banner Simply Created Kit (#132699) and the Christmas Banner Accessory Kit (#132697) or Halloween Banner Accessory Kit (#132698) and there is enough of the canvas paper pennants to create a few of these at home. You may need ink pads and sponge daubers or Stampin’ Spritzers to create the backgrounds, but the Banner kit has the stencils for the chevron, stripes and polka dots as well as the WHOLE ALPHABET! It’s a great Girl’s Night Project, too, so gather your friends.

Stamp Carving Party!
Tuesday, October 22
9:30 a.m.
at Pam’s house in Spanish Fork, UT

Less messy than carving pumpkins…and you take home (up to) four custom stamps that are UNIQUELY YOURS! We can’t wait to see what you come up with ūüôā The cost of the class is just for the Undefined Kit (#133402) Your payment must be received by October 17th so we can order your kit in time for the party OR you can order the kit from my store and just let me know you are coming. Pumpkin treats and a warm drink will be served as we create together. Cost: $23.30

Don’t Let the Parade Pass You By!

Every day in May I’m posting card samples on my Facebook Page as part of the “Retirement Parade”: Each card showcases a retiring stamp set! Here is today’s parade entry, designed by my downline and dear friend Kristi Kelly which we created at a Shoebox Swap at Stampin’ Up! Convention a few years ago:

So pull out your lawn chair, sit in some shade and “Like” Creative Juice by Loni Spendlove on Facebook to enjoy the Parade!
