“Christmas in July” – Featured Card Showcase
Hello there, Simple Pleasures readers! Wow. July’s Card Club Exchange marked the annual halfway mark…Christmas is coming, folks! Did you participate in our “Christmas in July” exchange? If you did, you are off to a great start with your holiday cards!
Speaking of cards…this month’s Featured Card is “Redbirds” designed by Jacque R.!
This card is simple, sweet (or is that ‘tweet!’) and gets me thinking of the cooler days ahead with that gorgeous red glitter, sheer green American Crafts ribbon and adorable Stamping Bella stamp.
Jacque also used Versafine ink, Zing clear embossing powder, watercolor pencils and even Twinkling H2Os!
You should stop by the store to see Jacque’s card and the rest of the wonderful holiday cards on our Card Club Exchange board.
Did you know that on the 4th Saturday of the month, the new cards are displayed on the main board behind the registers and the old cards begin their rotation out on the floor to eventually be displayed in albums at Simple Pleasures? That means, if you missed seeing the cards one month or wanted to get a second (or third or fourth) look at a design, you can!
Just ask to see the Card Club albums and we’ll be happy to assist you!
With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s always nice to receive a reminder that someone is “Thinking of You” by receiving a lovely handmade card. Join us in August using this theme.
(This is great opportunity to build up your stash or to make a few extra cards to donate (please include envelopes when you donate.) I’m sure we all know a few people who could use some cheering up!)
No sign ups, no obligation! Just remember to drop your cards off by the close of business on the 3rd Saturday of the month August 20th to participate! (You can always drop them off early, if it's more convenient for you! Just let us know what month they are for when you drop them off.) If you need a copy of the guidelines, stop by the store and pick them up! (The basic guidelines ensure that everyone gives and receives good quality cards!)
September: “Fall Fun”
October: “Tag-You’re It!”
December: “White Elephant” (This exchange is an opportunity to ‘finish’ a set of cards or to design those cards that you’ve just been itching to make! Guidelines still apply.)
Can't wait to see what inspiration you dish out this August!
