2012 June- Shel's Stampin' News

Shel’s Stampin’ News                                                   June 2012

 Hi Stampers & Scrappers!  Welcome to a new edition of Shel’s Stampin’ News for June. 

I hope everyone is enjoying some of the super spring weather we have been having.  Boy, it sure is nice to get those windows open and the spring breezes floating in the windows. I LOVE spring! 

And of course with the warmer weather there is all kinds of yard work and renovations to be done. We are looking at removing the stucco from our house and installing vinyl siding and removing our raised brick flower beds this year….yes we are going to be busy!!

On a personal note, I wanted to share with you an adorable photo of my granddaughter Brielle at her first birthday party. The internet company where they bought her dress has asked if they could use her photos on their website for the dress ad.  Imagine being a model at one year old….good thing this little angel has her Mother’s good looks!!

Ok, on to Stamping and Scrapping News:   

1.      NEW CATALOG- the new catalogs have arrived.  Cost is $5.00 each or FREE with at $100.00 catalog order.  I only have a few left….so if you don’t have one, get it soon while the price is right! 

2.     ARE YOU NEW TO STAMPING?  Are you curious about stamping and would like to try?  Well then my FREE Stamping 101 class is for you!  You will learn how easy and fun it is to stamp, the different types of stamping, and even make a free project to take home.  Contact me to register.

 3.     CLEARANCE RACK- with the new catalogue release, of course there are LOTS of retired items that have been added to the clearance rack at ridiculous prices.  Go to and click shop now.  Be sure to choose me as your demonstrator for added savings. 

 4.     NEW PRODUCTS PREVIEW- here is a peek at a few of the AMAZING new items in the new catalogue…..

 5.     JUNE CLASSES: for the summer months of June, July and August, my classes have been reduced to one of each class per month. Summer is a busy time and we need to get outside and enjoy the weather while we can, and with kids off school and family vacations etc, it just makes sense to reduce the class selections to a  minimum.  Of course, if anyone is in need of one on one classes, or a workshop, please contact me.

Scrapbooking Class- Thur June 7@ 6:30- only 2 seats left…·

10. MONTHLY SKETCH CHALLENGE Last month I tried something new with a sketch challenge for my scrappers  and my card maker’s.  I provided a sketch as inspiration for you to create.  Sadly, I only had one participant in last month’s challenge, but she did an amazing job!  Go to my blog at to see her card and scrapbook pages. 

Now Carole is on a mission to get more of you to participate- she has been asking everyone she sees in classes to participate in the sketch challenge….  so once again this month I am attaching a couple of sketches for inspiration.  Use them as a guide to create your layout and /or card, and share them with me.  

11.                INSPIRATION PROJECT:  Here is this month’s inspiration project .   

This is an extremely quick and easy card using the Easy Events stamp set.  
This is a GREAT all occasion stamp set that has both the image and the greeting on the same stamp.  LOVE IT!!
