I love PAPER!

Hello again! 

I hope this post finds you happy and creative! The weather here in Zurich has been rather dreadful for the past couple of weeks with cooler than normal temps and LOTS OF RAIN! I like the rain, don't get me wrong, but when it rains off and on every day for almost 2 weeks I get a bit cranky... However, the rain has meant more time indoors and more time stamping and doing workshops! I was excited to host two "stamp camps" at the beginning of June where a group of friends and "friends-of-friends" made 4 different cards and a variety of tags. It is so much fun to teach women who have never stamped before how easy it is to make a beautiful card with ink, stamp, sponge (to age the edges, of course!) and paper. Below is a shot of the somewhat chaotic, yet creative table we had at the first workshop! 

While in the US for our spring break, I bought some new designer papers that I absolutely adore. They have such amazing patterns and colors and I honestly can't get enough of them. Check out a few of the cards and tags I made with them below!

This is the cover of a card set pack that includes 4 coordinating cards and 4 tags

I'm hooked on making these flower cards....who knew what could be done with a heart punch???!!

I absolutely love these red prints! I wish I had fabric in the same...
Well, I'm off to work on some teacher presents now! In spite of having a pile of other things on my plate right now, I've decided to make all of the kids' teachers "handmade" gifts that they can actually use. Check back next week (hopefully!!) to see what I'm up to!

Ohhhh - I see sun shining on the other side of the lake and a bit of blue sky- yippppeeee! I think that means the rain is finally over! What a way to sign off for the day!
