Upcoming Classes and Dates

Today I facilitated my girls' stampin' group at the Alden Road school, as they made 38 stamped and decoupaged tile coasters as thank you gifts for the local Kiwanis chapter. It took about 90 minutes for these exceptional kids to create the beautiful tiles stamped with "I get by with a little help from my friends (John Lennon)" and an assortment of leaves. The tiles were donated by my husband, who just happens to be in the tile business. The girls first stamped the words in Chocolate Chip Ink, and various leaves in Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, and Old Olive onto gift tissue paper squares cut appx. 2" larger than the 4" glossy tile. We then brushed a light coat of decoupage onto the tiles, and layered the tissue atop the tile. They gently tapped the stamped paper, which became an almost silk-like sheer fabric topping the tile. After applying another coat of decoupage atop the image, the tiles were set aside to dry. They will be finished with a clear coat of acrylic gloss spray, felt backing, and a collaborative poem written by the students too. I wish I had taken a picture of them, they turned out just lovely!

It has been a truly busy month.... and of course, with the holiday weekend approaching, who can think of a better reason to get together and STAMP! These are the cards we will be making at Hobby Lobby on June 5th, and AC Moore on June 3rd.. preregisteration is required for both classes. We will focus on coloration and embossing. Hope to see you there!
