Soft Summer Again!

I wish I had a scrapbook page to share with you today since it is National Scrapbooking Month. Are their many of you out there that scrapbook?  I would like to dive into scrapbooking some more and get out of the shallow end.  I certainly have enough pictures and events that would last me a lifetime of scrapbooking.  I do have some plans to start a scrapbooking club and even some scrapbooking classes.  It is so nice to give handmade gifts and there are so many great projects out there that I would love to make and share with you.  If you are interested in a scrapbooking club or class, please send me an e-mail to let me know.  I would like to try and get something set up before the summer.  

 I have been working hard at getting back into my creative mode and am almost done getting my projects ready for my Mother's Day class on Monday. I will share the projects with you next week.  For today's post I am going to share a card that I made with the Soft Summer stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalogue.  I have grown to really like this stamp set and one of the cards on Monday's class will also be from this set.  

This was quite a simple card to make.  I used my Markers to ink up the stamp and then stamped a couple of other flowers that I cut out for extra dimension.  To get proper placement of the outline image stamp, I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I think that is one of my most favourite tools.  I found the idea for the ribbon in our monthly newsletter that we receive from Stamping Up!,  I thought it was a fun way of accenting with both a ribbon and a button.  And of course I added some glitter to the centre of the flowers, because we all love glitter :)
Hope you are having a great weekend!
