Stamp Camp

Family stamp camp was this past Sunday.  My three sisters, two nieces and my DDIL all gathered to have some fun stamping.  We hadn't gotten together for quite awhile, so it was good to see everyone and catch up.

This picture shows the note holder we made using the clear mount storage cases that SU! sells.  It is so fun to decorate your piece of designer paper then slip it in the plastic covering.  Presto!  You have a case to carry a note pad...or coupons...or cards...or whatever you need to have with you.  They turned out really cute.  Here is the one I made for myself...

Using the two sided Designer Series Paper makes it easy to finish the inside!

It was fun to watch my 5 year old nephew, Elijah, stamp too.  He wanted to make a card just like mine, so his mom helped him a bit....although not alot....and he got to make his card.

Here he is distressing the cardstock...he really liked the distresser tool.

Then he had to add the glue for the glitter to be added to the butterfly wings....

And voila'...his card is finished!

Here is the sample card I did to compare his too...not too bad! Good job, Eli!

The stamp set used on this card is a sneak peek at a set of four stamps called Hope and Strength which will be available May 1st.  Stampin' Up! will donate $2 from each set sold to The Breast Cancer Research Center.  How cool!

So that is what I have been up to.  I have stamp club tonight, my Tuesday Tappers, so I worked a bit last evening to clear my table off so that they will have room to work.  It needed it, don't you think?


  1. Love the note pad holder!!! I can hardly wait to do one for ME!!!!!
    The card your nephew is adorable. I think he just might be ready to step into your shoes when you retire in 20 or so years!!!!

    Had a great time at Tuesday Tappers! Loved the cards!!! Must say the "bird head" card was my favorite! {now that will leave some to wonder on that comment!} :)
