This month the design team has whipped up a little happy for you using the new Echo Park Line, Walk in the Park. Love this whimsical line. Fresh, clean lines. HAPPY. HAPPY. HAPPY.
So, I told the Lisa's I was going to make a KITE out of the new line. Advice... my friends ... If you want to make a KITE, you need more than two sheets of paper. LOL! So, I decided to paint a canvas and make a kite on the canvas. How fun is that! This little creation just makes me HAPPY.
Sometimes you just have to create something different. Keep that in mind when you are trying to work through your massive stash of scrappy papers. Who you kidding? I know you all have some you're hoarding. Get it out and PLAY!
The canvas is a 12 x 12 canvas I found in my stash (see, I'm using my stash). All the papers are from the new Echo Park Line. Pretty, colorful buttons from my stash (Bazzil). Ribbon, Chipboard letters. AND.... lot of perfect pearls to make it all sparkly. Hope it makes you happy!

There has been so much happening that we were a bit late getting all our new Design Team creations made. Here is the beginning of our creations!
Jill whipped up a batch of six cute cards this month. Here are the first 3 cards. The Happy Birthday card was made using the cut out sheet from the paper line. This cut out sheet had about six different sayings you could use for card making.
These cards were too nice not to share. Annabelle, one of our regular customers, took Cindy's Dogwood card class and was inspired to make even more cards. You may be wondering how she managed to find ribbon in the exact color of the stamped images. She used white ribbon and colored the ribbon with the matching Copic Marker. Just one of the many cool things you can do with these markers.
Annabelle used the thin border stickers from Flower Soft around her mat on this Hero Arts Poppy card.
She has really mastered her Copic shading on this card.
Thanks for sharing all your beautiful cards with us!

If you are wondering what Amusapalooza is, it is Amuse stamp company's annual "stamping extravaganza" event and also when they release their Christmas images for the year. This year they have thrown in Halloween images too (yipee!!). This event takes place from July 10th - July 17th and we cannot show you the images or our creations with them prior to the start of the event, but I can tell you that they are great. I especially love the sentiment stamps in their Christmas line this year, and I have fallen head-over-heels for some of the Halloween stamps.
This Saturday, July 10th, from 1 - 3 pm I will be teaching a class where we will be making 5 Halloween cards and a fabulous (but easy) treat box using the new Amuse Halloween stamps. On Thurday 7/15, I will be teaching a Christmas card class using the new Amuse Christmas stamps. I hope you can join me!
On to Design Team news...this month we are using the line A Walk In The Park by Echo Park. I just love the bright colors, the designs, and the duckie embellishments. Keep watching the DT blog for peeks and come by the store to see our creations in person.
