May is National Scrapbooking month so my group, The Pacific Stampers, and I will be holding our first every Scrap Camp on Sunday, May 31st. At this Scrap Camp, we will be making a full 8 x 8 scrapbook that includes 20 pages that once finished will be ready for you to just put your pictures in!
We will also be donating $5 from each registration or kit sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Honolulu. I hope that you will be able to join us on this fun day and help donate to this worthy charity. Please call or email me for registration information or to purchase a packet if you can’t attend on this day!
Here are some pictures of what the finished album will look like!
Here is the front cover that you will decorate with the initial of your choosing. Also shown is the inside
front cover and the first two sets of pages.
Here are the next three sets of pages!
The next three sets of pages!
And finally, the last two sets of pages, the back inside cover, and the back outside cover of the album! These pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this wonderful album! Many of the pages are made with textured card stock, and have die cuts and other embellishments that are hard to capture in photos like this!
The early bird registration deadline is Friday, May 1st, and the final deadline is Friday, May 8th. Again, please let me know if you would like information on registering or purchasing a kit. I hope that you’ll be able to join us for this fun event!
This last Sunday, my group, The Pacific Stampers held our first ever Card Camp. This event was in response to our customers asking to be able to make more cards! At this Card Camp everyone stamped 16 cards, two each of eight different designs. Following are some pictures of the day as well as pictures of the cards that we made that day. Enjoy!
Welcome to Card Camp! We always have a Welcome Sign for our camps. The signs are usually made by Brenda Ballesteros, but since she’s out on maternity leave, Jane Nishiguchi volunteered to make one. This picture doesn’t do it justice as you can’t get the full effect of the chunky glitter bling!! Thanks Jane!
The bags are ready for our customers to come in and start having fun stamping!
Traci Tomomitsu and Kehau Bajet help everyone check in, get their bags and a beautiful favor!
Here is the beautiful favor that Traci made for each guest!
What would a stamping day be without the opportunity to win great door and raffle prizes?!?
We also have a card contest and everyone gets to vote on their favorite card!
We have a sample table filled with beautiful creations to help inspire everyone and get thier creative juices flowing!
We have a demonstration table where we demonstrate new products or techniques. This demonstration was on the Big Shot and was done by Shelby Dissinger. Thanks Shelby!
We also have a very popular Silent Auction. Everyone gets to bid on Stampin’ Up! product and handmade items!
And lastly, we always have some retired stamp sets and accessories for sale!
All of this makes for some very happy stampers!
