Absolutely HILARIOUS video by Anita Renfro and what I've been up to...

Phew, what a busy couple of weeks I've had!  The Stamp Camp was an absolute blast - a lot of prep work but oh, my goodness 10 ladies and I had soooo much fun!  As with any first there were a few hiccups but they'll be smoothed over for the next one in May (Tuesday, 18th May at 10AM and Friday, 21 May at 7PM)  if you are interested in coming!  I'll definitely be adding this class in to my monthly schedule!

As soon as Stamp Camp was over I delved into all my new goodies to get ready for my Open House this Friday, 30th April!  I've been oohing and aahing over all the new stuff and having a great time putting together the samples of the new workshops!  I love, love, love the stamps they created for this round of workshops - CTMH really outdid themselves with terrific versatile design.  This morning I finished a sweet little treat for all the lucky ladies coming to the party and tonight I finished the design for the make-and-take we'll be doing.  I think you girls are going to LOVE what I've come up with - it made my 14 year old daughter squeal with the cuteness factor.  Yes, I pass all my creations by my kids and hubby to guage cuteness quotient.

So, once I've recovered from the Open House (probably Monday - LOL) I'll begin posting all sorts of fun, fresh and new stuff for you all to see.  In the mean time here is a freaking hilarious video I found by Anita Renfro that anyone can enjoy!  Seeing as how I'm turning 40 (good golly, can it be????) this October I found this video particularly hilarious tonight!

You asked for it, you GOT it! Stamp Camp coming in April!

Over the past couple of years I've had several requests for a Stamp Camp ladies night - both at my house and at other homes. Well, it took me some time to figure out the logistics and gather the supplies I'd need (lots and lots of blocks not to mention inks, tools, paper and stamps!) but its FINALLY HERE! Starting this month on Friday, 16th April I'll be hosting my first big STAMP CAMP!


In the past I've showcased specific projects that we would do during my two hour creative classes. We would sit down and pass each stamp and ink along until our whole circle was done with one project. I know we all had fun together but its sometimes hard for a quick person to wait on someone who takes a bit longer to finish up a project. The one thing I've learned is that my lovely ladies ALL have their own style and pace when it comes to scrapping and crafting.

So, to keep things fresh and fun here is how my new Stamp Camps will operate:
- I'll have a large selection of mostly cards and some projects (things like tags, bag toppers, mini boxes, etc.) for people to choose from - at least one project per person attending. They won't all be shown prior to the Stamp Camp so there are sure to be surprises every time!

- Each project will be in a stand alone box with everything you need to complete that particular project. When you are done with one project simply grab another box!

- YOU can pick and choose which projects you'd like to do. If you LOVE one particular project there will even be extras cut for you to assemble! If I run out on a project you can request that one to be brought back for the next session!

- The Stamp Camp will run on a STRICT time line - because you girls would stay all night crafting if I let you - LOL! We will start at 7PM on the dot and end at 9PM on the dot.

- Pricing is $15 per person for all-you-can-make during 7-9PM.  If you're in the crafting groove and want to finish additional projects, you can purchase and extra hour 9PM-10PM for an addtional $5.  If you bring a friend who is new to me, you'll get a 50% discount on your Stamp Camp!

- You will bring your own adhesives (Tombow, Glue Dots, pop dots) but everything else is pre-cut, ready to stamp and assemble!

After doing a bit of a trial run on this during the last creative class, I think this new system is going to be a huge hit! I'll be creating things with various styles, colors and techniques to have literally something for everyone. For this upcoming session alone I already have Mother's Day, baby boy and baby girl cards, a teen card and a get well card - and I'm not done yet! I've even updated and brought back that huge hit - the flower pot card! I really think you girls are going to love this and I'm so excited to share it with you!
There will be limited seating so be sure to send me an e-mail to paigedolecki@yahoo.com or give me a call to reserve your spot at the table today!
