April Creative Images Meeting

We had a good turn out last night and almost everyone brought in cards for our Pretty in Pink exchange theme. I had my dates mixed up and had to be reminded by Jeannie! But, I made it, late, but there. I was so glad to see Linda and give her a hug. Janice and Theresa did the project this month, a cookout themed card with matchboxes getting everyone in the mood to cook outside.

First, here’s a collection of the ladies having fun, with the notable exception of Tange, who was pissed at me for taking her picture while she was working on her project, and Herman, our new member, Lona’s other half.

Herman must have had fun last month to come back for more! Note the red and white checked table cloth that matched the project we did.

There’s a really wide range of pinks in our exchange cards this month! First up, Holly’s Mother’s Day card using patterned paper and Primas.

Holly's PIP

Connie put together this clever flower by folding little punched circles and arranging them in a circle. I like the colored Easter eggs, too.

Ella made this bright card using designer paper, flowers and fiber.

Herman put together this blinged up slinky pink dress.

Here’s my Easter card in rose pink. You can see a pic of the inside and where I CASE’d this fold from on my March 6 post below.

Kathy's PIP

Janice made this cute little chorus line of chickies with glittered up Easter bunny ears!

Jeannie made several of these Cheers to You cards with the tipsy frog for friends of Meg that turned 21 last weekend.

Rosie made this romantic card with antique ephemera of sparking couples.

Linda made this lovely three-dimensional bouquet with Flower Soft. I have to quit hoarding my Flower Soft!

Linda's PIP

Lona stamped these delicate pink leaves on a marbleized background, I think.

Pam watercolored this birthday card and used a dotted swiss embossing folder for the green layer and the Awash with Flowers stamp set.

Pam's PIP

Patty made this blissful wedding card with the Elegant Lines embossing folder, photo corner and bling!

Therese colored and fussy cut this Easter bunny cupcake with a nice fold on the ribbon.

Tange gold embossed this celebration card with her three rockin’ chicks.

Theresa made this elegant thank you card with layered flower stickers. Easy peasy, but gorgeous.

Here’s the cute little cookout project designed by Janice and Theresa. Between the two red scallops is four little boxes of wooden matches, with star brads to help open the little drawers. My fave fussy cutting and watercoloring on the chef and fire.

Janice & Theresa's sample

As incentive to finish the project, Janice and Theresa made these little s’mores packs to hand out. I think Janice said she found the little flat marshmallows at Walmart. Ever since my long ago and far away days as a Girl Scout, I just love s’mores. Can’t go camping without the makings, but make do with the microwave.

Janice & Theresa's S'mores

That’s it for this month. Hope to see some of you at Jeannie’s workshop on the 23rd.

Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome.

First of all thanks for the pics of the ladies. I just love being able to see them and remember their faces.
Holly and Connie's cards really caught my eye. Just love that flower on the stem, that Connie did and that great design that Holly used. Herman gets a big round of applause from me for fitting right in with the stampers. And I do like the card he contributed also. Janice, I love those little dancing chicks with the bunny ears, too cute! Patty, your wedding card was a great idea for that embossing folder, I will be using this design for sure. Pam, I love your clusters of flowers and am amazed at all the fussy cutting you did to achieve that darling card. Jeannie, I love that froggie in the martini glass. That green frog really stood out on your pink card.
Saving the best for last Kathy, your little pink lady, just looks fab on that designer paper, and that ROSE omg I want those little roses.
Great job ladies and gentleman!
