Hello Crafty Friends,

What a whirlwind of a week and a half!  I have been to Phoenix, Arizona and back.  Let me tell you about the Fun Stampers Journey Convention.

The first major thing that happened was a new logo for FSJ.

The logo is fresh, simple and wonderful.  I love it.  It is a simple circle with limited colors.

The next major thing was the brand new catalog.  The catalog is AMAZING!   Here is a picture of the cover.

Wait till you see the inside.  It full of beautiful stamps, tools and accessories.   We have three new collections, The Good Life,  Colorful Journey and RSVP.  You are going to love them.  The catalog  goes live on July 1st!

Lastly, I got to spend a lot of time with my downline.  We went to the Butterfly Wonderland, ate many meals together and crafted together.  This is always one of the highlights to going to convention.  Here are some pictures of our time together.

Fun Stampers Journey knows how to put on a Convention and spoil their coaches.   It is always a great time of getting motivation and inspiration also.

This year, I had the opportunity to teach a breakout with Sheree Hughes, a fellow coach, on organizing your business.  I was very nervous, but it was such an honor to be able to teach my fellow coaches.

Want to attend with my next year?  Join my team.  We have new starter kits coming July 1st.  Check back to my Join my team page for more information then.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am having a great weekend.  I am attending a crafty retreat and I am getting a lot done.  It always is a good feeling when you are productive. 

Today I want to share a very simple card with you.

To get the white color on the blooms, I used the Whip Cream Color Burst Pencil, lightly over the stamped image.  I like the soft hue it put on the blooms.

Stamp: Peony Blooms, Embroidered Greetings
Paper: Lavender Fusion Cardstock, Grape Fusion Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock
Ink: Black Licorice
Colored with Journey Color Burst Pencils

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a technique card to share with you.  I learned this technique from a dear friend of mine.

To make the blue strip down the middle of the card, I used Painter's Tape in either side of the Whip Cream Cardstock and then used a large dauber to distress the area.  Cool right?  I think so.  It is also a way to use up those left over rolls of painters tape after your paint projects!

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Dahlia Burst, Ink Splat, Must Have Sentiments
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock
Silk: Sparkle
Ink: River Stone, Lavender Fusion, Beach Breeze
Accessories: Journey Thread Silver, Rainbow Drops
Tools: Large Dauber
