The theme for our June meeting was "Beach Scene/Summer" and we got some nice cards in our exchange and some nice swaps with a birthday theme. (I'm not going to fight the changes in font size, centering or anything else.) Pat R did the project and it's a cool motorcycle card.

First is Cheryl B's lighthouse with a fussy cut shell and a gull flying by.

Eleanor made this fussy cut seahorse.

Jeannie made this faux postage with suns on it.

This is my crabby card.  Lots of fussy cutting and layering.

Pam made this lighthouse with sunny skies.

 This is Pat J's lighthouse done on a transparency.

 Pat R made this step card with cute seaside die cuts.

Therese made this hysterical toasting bacon card! Inside says Greetings from Florida.

This is Pat R's project sample. All we had to do was put it together.  The diamond plate embossed on shiny cardstock turned out really well.

 We got six nice birthday cards in our swap.  First is Cheryl B's cute cupcake.

This card is Jeannie's with Color Burst inks and black velvet.

This one is mine.

Pam did this woodwork looking card.

Pat J did this rainbow-y background (sponged?) with white embossed flowers.

Pat R made this fold out card.  Here it is open. . .

and closed.

Thanks for stopping by. Comments welcome.

I've been really behind in getting the club pictures posted, but I always seem to have a good reason for the delay.  I'm still wanting to get a new blog started, keeping all the old posts if possible, but haven't figured it out, yet.  So, I'll just keep struggling with the old blog and at least get the pictures posted.  I fight with centering and fonts and font sizes till I could scream.  Enough with the excuses.

Our theme for the May meeting was "Vellum" and Cheryl B had the project.  Here goes:

First is Cami's turquoise daisy. Font change!

Cheryl B did these die cut butterflies. Can't uncenter it!

Eleanor did this embossed flower on vellum.

Jeannie did this buzzing by card.

I made the sunburst below on vellum and fussy cut the plane.

Pam made this cloudy day card.

Pat J made this Birthday Blooms card with an embossed vellum overlay.

Pat R made this lovely sympathy card.  

Here we are on the left again, with Cheryl B's sample.  I took pictures of the pages of a card magazine, but don't feel I can copy them in here due to copyright laws.  If you would like the pictures e-mailed to you, let me know and I'll do that. The card folds up into a circle card held together with brads.
