SASSSC's May Meeting

This month's meeting was fun...but not quite as SASSSC as normal.

We were missing Olga, Thelma, Lynn, Margie and Adriana.

Actually, let me show you who WAS at SASSSC this month (only 4 out of 9):

Delia and Laura

Mary and Annie (me)

We definitely had fun...5 people all missed a very creative make 'n take...hopefully we will see everyone next month. :) We did make the make 'n take for those that missed. This just means we got more practice on the cool technique that we learned.

Laura prepared the beautiful make 'n take for us called Watercolor Roses. Click Here for the link to a video demonstration. What a GREAT technique.

Here we are making them...



Here's the ones that Delia made. This shows that you can use this technique to make darker flowers or lighter ones. Both are gorgeous.


**Note that it won't take 30 min to dry (like the online demo says) if you dab the excess off with a tissue or paper towel. If you don't dab off the will never dry...remember we ARE in Houston ladies!!! HA!

After dabbing off the excess liquid, a heat gun will eliminate that extra moisture so you can finish your card.

Thanks for the great ideas Laura!

Here are our SASSSC Swaps for the month:

Annie's Card

Mary's Card

Delia's Card

Olga's Card

Laura's Card

Adriana's Card

Door Prize Winner this month was Mary! She won a box of Mono Refills. GO MARY!

...till next time...keep stampin'!

See you all soon!
