Getting Ready for August Parties & Clubs!

I am having so much fun getting ready for my parties and clubs for August!! I can't resist giving a sneak peek of what we're going to be doing! No directions or details yet - maybe on Sunday (after a party and my club)!! I know I have just too much planned, but I can't resist! I am just so excited about this new book and so ready to be stamping again!

This giftcard holder is inspired by a fellow demonstrator - thank you Patty! There is actually a tutorial on her blog. We're making this tonight and on Saturday - and I'll be giving out a one-page direction sheet. I used the colors out of the new Idea Book & Catalog for this stamp set!

Ink: Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery

Love that Sock Monkey - I couldn't resist. I saw two similar cards to this on Splitcoast (momof2lilboyz & Tracy Altemose). This is my take on their idea! And I used the new Kiwi Kiss paper!
