Today, we have a Sweet & Simple card using the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. Beautiful, but quick, as I'm getting ready to put the final touches on my Stamping Bee day-long mini retreat tomorrow. I can't wait as I'm so excited for everyone to dive into their goodie bags and find their gifts. I've worked for several weeks on making tomorrow special for my team and our guests. I'll have pictures for you on Monday, but for now, everything is still undercover!
I have a quick tip for you today. Do you ever tie a bow or not and get frustrated because the ends are not cooperating and seem to have a life of their own. That's what happened to me today. One of the ends of my knot refused to lay down, and was standing straight up in the air no matter what I tried. So, I rolled a mini glue dot into a ball and stuck it right on the darker edge of the Petal Pink 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon. It worked perfectly. And best of all, you can't see it!
Speaking of retreats...
There is still room at my October 4-7 Stamping in the Mountains Retreat in Montreat, North Carolina. Come enjoy fall in the mountains, for a special weekend spent crafting for the holidays. There will be 3 1/2 days of crafting. And unlike other crops or retreats, meals & lodging are included!
Registration ends June 15th. Learn more here.
