Stamp Camp July 2009

I always have a really good time a Stamp Camp. I never go away wishing I had a better time. There have been a few minor problems over the years. One being the "accidental adhesive hog" and the more annoying "on purpose adhesive hog." Then there is the "accidental scissors hog" and the "on purpose scissors hog."

I solved this problem with bringing my own scissors and adhesive years before they started actually asking us to do it. I'm not sure if they started asking us to do it to save money or to break up fights. I have been tempted to smack a nasty hog or too over the years. Grown-ups who don't know how to share things that don't even belong to them. grrrr. Not fun, but easy to ignore.

The first card I made was this little boy card. Just an adorable stamp set where each part of the little person you were making is a separate stamp. That way your boy or girl could have curly hair or straight or crew cut or long hair. One did have to know their way around a "Stamp-ama-jig". If you click on the link there is a tutorial. You may have to join the Split Coast Stampers site, but it is free and lots of great stamping info on that site.
The 2nd card I think is my favorite. I love cards that do things even as simple as hide a tag with a sentiment.

You can still open the turtle card to write a personal note as well.

This was my least favorite. Why I'm not sure. It's pretty. Easy to make. I guess I'm not a big fake flower fan or fan of pink.

I really liked this one too. I stamped the leafy imagine and then put it behind the punched out imagine on the card. It was fairly simple as well and I liked the look of it.
A purple recipe card... this stamp set would be SO up my alley. I've been making my own recipe cards since I was 16. Only problem I use 4X6 inch cards. I like the extra room on the cards. This stamp set is for a 3X5 inch card. Oh pooh. I loved the idea of decorating a stand to display the recipe. I may make some of these for Christmas.

I'm a little behind in my blog hopping. I had to giggle at your references to the adhesive hogs and scissors hog. lol We all have our own adhesive with our name on it, but I think the ladies I go to stamp club with are pretty good about sharing. The cards you made are really pretty! I love making cards and I haven't crafted at all in over a month.too much crap going on! Take care!
