My Dad Has Went to His Forever Home

Late Wednesday night July 28, 2021 my Dad went to his forever home.  He had been in hospice for about 7 weeks and now is home with my mom, pain free and in a much better place.

I had a One Sheet Wonder technique to share with you today but with everything going on I didn’t have time to tweak the video and get it uploaded.  I will do it as soon as I can.  I used the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper which is 15% off the month of July; so if you do not have it yet you may want to order it.

This is my Dad and his dog Buddy:


This Month’s Stamp Camp At Home Club Kit:

snowflake wishes stamp set

The Snowflake Wishes stamp set and the So Many Snowflakes dies from Stampin’ Up! is my featured stamp set/die bundle for  July’s Stamp Camp At Home Card Club.  These two products were originally sold as Snowflake Wishes Bundle.  They are available in the Annual Catalog but sold separately.

This month you will create 2 different pocket cards and a faux pocket card that looks like a pocket card but it isn’t.  I love the color combinations for these 3 cards and I think you will as well.  They are not your traditional Christmas colors or snowflake colors but so pretty!  The colors I chose are:  Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather and Night of Navy.

You might be thinking Christmas cards in July?  Yes, it’s time to get a jump start on your Christmas cards and what better bundle than the Snowflake Wishes and the So Many Snowflakes dies.

With a min. $40.00 order and the use of this month’s host code: XQ9XQMVR you will receive the Card Kit to create all 3 of these cards, the PDF file, and a Video tutorial with step by step instructions so you can have a visual on how to create and assemble all 3 of the cards.

Customer Appreciation PDF file for July:

Artistically Inked Stamp Set 2021
The July 2021 Customer Appreciation PDF file features the Artistically Inked stamp set. You will use the different stamps in the set to create a One Sheet Wonder technique.
This month’s Customer Appreciation PDF file was designed by Diane Short my fellow team mate.   You are going to love Diane’s cards and how quick and easy they are to create.  You can make them for any occasion you have coming up; just change the sentiment to whatever you need.  You will create 6 different cards with your hand made designer paper.
With a $30.00 order and the use of this month’s host code you will receive the PDF file for these cards.
With a $70.00 order and the use of this month’s host code XQ9XQMVR you will receive both the Customer Appreciation PDF file and the Stamp Camp At Home Card Club Snowflake Wishes PDF file, video and card kit.
