Spring Stamp Camp 2012

Our stamping group held our first Spring Stamp Camp on April 27.  It was a lot of fun! And a lot of work for the three of us presenters - Deby Scott, Kim Leach and me.

The tables were decorated with spring flower pots.  Under the green styrofoam disks, each pot was filled with stamping goodies - ribbons, bows, stickers, chip board pieces, brads, and roses on top of the disk.  There was also a small bag of stamped images.  Rather than bend them, we put them on the table with each pot.

When the attendees arrived, they were greeted with this scene -

Each person received a personalized decorated gift bag containing the kits for each of the cards to be made.  After brief instructional directions, everyone went to a table to begin working.

The gentleman in the picture has attended every stamp camp we've done.  The first Christmas he and his wife attended together.  She has had to work the day of the others.

 Here are pictures of the cards each of us made.

 Kim had a meeting in another part of the building, but as she had a break she would come in to see how everyone was doing.  Deby and I helped anyone who needed assistance creating Kim's cards.

We couldn't get Kim to stop long enough for a quick picture!!

Our kitchen staff made us another scrumptious lunch of sandwiches, hot pasta, chips, punch and desert.  All in all, everyone had a great time and got all of their cards finished. 

Did you notice that the ribbons on the tables, the gift bags and flower backgrounds all perfectly matched?  It was not intentionally planned - it just all came together perfectly!  The bags were purchased one day, the ribbons a few days later.  Deby had the cardstock for the flowers in her retired Stampin' Up papers.  We believe God had it all planned that way for us!

Thank you for stopping by and sharing our Spring Stamp Camp with us.

The colors alone would make anyone happy, but then to see the card projects -- that really topped off the class! How could anyone NOT have a great, happy time -- and to go home with quite the selection of cards. Looks like they'll be demanding the same "managers" the next Stamp Camp. Wonderful, fabulous job, Kathy, and I'm sure everyone walked away blessed by it. Thanks for sharing !!
