I Can't Wait!

I just got a peak of the new Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP! and...OH MY GOSH, it is awesome. I can't wait to show you all of the new products that are available, 50 pages of beautiful and delightful stamps and accessories. The only problem is that I will have to wait until mid-August to share it with you. As soon as Stampin' UP! says I can show it to my friends, I will, and then we can OOH and AAH it together!

In the meantime, I'm getting ready for July's stamp camp. Prepping for my camp is so much fun for me! I love the cutting and the organizing part...weird, huh? Anyway, I wanted to show you the cards we'll be making on Saturday. Here they are:

July Stamp Camp Cards

Three of them are made with our newest stamp sets, (from L to R) Sheltering Tree which came out this past spring. Sprinkles of Life which is this years Ronald McDonald House stamp set. For every stamp set sold, Stampin' UP! gives $3.00 to RMDH. Garden in Bloom is the next stamp set and I love it because I get to do a two-step stamping technique which is loads of fun (or frustration LOL)! The last card is made from Summer Silhouettes which I've had for quite a while, but I wanted to try to make it look like Queen Ann's Lace. Some folks just call that a weed, but to me it brings back great memories of hiking through the woods and meadows up north in Michigan when Mark and Ben were about 5 & 6 years old. Anyway, I tried embossing the flower part with white embossing powder and I think it came out pretty good. 

So, that's what I'll be doing Saturday and I can't wait to see my friends and share it with them!

Also, I haven't forgotten my garden this month. So, I'm going to share some of my pictures of how it's doing. Here they are:

Well, that's about it for now! I have to get back to prepping for Stamp Camp! See you soon, I hope!
