Attention all you Cricut Users!

Hard to believe that Christmas is only 8 weeks away - roughly. If you're trying to come up with the perfect gift for the person who has everything, why not buy them a Cricut Retreat?
Now what's a Cricut Retreat you ask? Scrap N Stamp in sponsoring a weekend retreat that is focusing on the Cricut machines. If you click on the following link to the event co-ordinator's blog, Jax Cricit Retreat, you can get all the details, including pricing, menus, etc.
This is our first event, but it should be fantastic. I've heard the seating is limited to about 30-35 so you definitely want to get your name in there ASAP.
To give you just a teaser, included in the pricing are 6 classes by me and one with Jeanne.
Contact the event organizer to get in your deposit and applications!

A cute Bird Day Card

Lately I've been super busy, with Jeanne being gone, training Thomas plus working on my classes. I had a bit of a chance to work on a simple card which personally speaking I think came out cute. I did a reverse mask technique.

Masking is a technique where you stamp your image onto your cardstock. Then stamp it again onto a post it note paper. Then you cut out the image, place it over your original, then stamp over the piece using other images. Reverse masking is when you use the negative space around your post it note image rather than the image itself!

Stamp Club-Tues. July 22nd, 7pm-9pm

Stamp Club is meeting tonight to help make as many cards as we can within the 2 hour period. We will be donating all the cards made to a local nursing home so I'm hoping we can make plenty.
I actually had a great time designing these cards, it was nice to just sit and create. All those who participate will walk away with a set of these cards as well. Just a thank you for coming out and lending a hand.
Now of course the colors may change because we will be using cardstock and paper that I have in my own stash, but the design layouts will be what you see here!
Take care folks and I hope to see a few of you tonight!

Make N' Take Mayhem

Well this week of Make N' Takes has been fabulous. It's been great to see new faces along with the old. Now we do still have a few kits left of the Make N' Takes and they will be priced, ready for sale on Tuesday, July 8th. Hard to believe it's already July, I mean where has the year gone! Below are the pictures of the Make N' Takes from Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today is the last day of the $1 Make N' Takes so if you haven't dropped by be sure and try to come and see us!
OK, so on a more personal note, we've recently had a new addition to our little family. Her name is Sydney, Rob named her, and she was a rescue and a surprise. A friend brought her over to the shop and of course being an animal lover, once I saw her I knew we were going to keep her. Rob was a little surprised to say the least, but by the time I got her home, he had given her her name, set up her living quarters and was ready to hold her! The best DH a woman could ask for. So here are a few pics of our new little treasure!

Newness on the Horizon

OK, OK, you know that you must start posting more on your blog when your Mom says that there hasn't been new content in awhile, so...
On July 1st, and for you Canadians out there you know what that day is, I'm going to begin posting regularly my projects and creative thoughts. I chose the title for this blog because those of you who know me, know that I do miss the winter weather, and yes could easily live in Alaska! I try to get there in my mind by keeping our crop room as cold as possible!LOL
Keep a look out for the new blog, it will be somewhere you will want to definitely mark in your favorites!
