My Sunshine...stamp of the month blog hop

Wowee... another month-gone!  The good thing is that a new month means a new stamp set to explore.

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month blog hop!  If you are just stopping in- just sit back and enjoy.  The next stop on the hop is listed at the end of this post.

Now... if you are coming from Sheila's blog- WELCOME!

Up first:
here are the stamps in this month's special set available for $17.95 OR only $5 with a $50 order.
Isn't this set awesome!!!  I love it.
Here is how I used it:
I used the Surf's Up paper, new metal studs, Goldrush, Smoothie and Lagoon inks.  Lagoon colored bakers twine.  The Artiste cartridge has the balloon shape and basket shapes but I actually hand cut mine because I was out of town and didn't take my cricut with me when I created this!
I did pop up my balloon, basket and sentiment with 3-d foam tape as well.
NEXT up- visit Judy's page  to see what she has in store for you!

Are you on facebook?  Visit my page at   and click to "like" my page.  When I have 200 likes I am awarding TWO workshop on the go kits valued at $29.95.  One winner will be drawn from everyone that shares my page (specifically- share the post that says "share my page")  AND the other will be a random drawing from everyone that enters to win.

Studio J- $5 layouts

Today is your LAST chance to create Studio J layouts and pay only $5 per printed 2-page layout!

I had a ton of fun creating some new layouts.  Here is one of them:
If you've never tried Studio J- you are seriously missing out!  Don't get me wrong- I love my paper, cutter, embellishments just like the rest of you.  But as a busy mom of 2 that works full time- I never have enough time to work on my own projects!  So when I'm feeling the tug to create, but don't have much time, I pull out my laptop!  I only use Studio J on photos I haven't yet printed so I don't waste money on printing photos twice.

Studio J is 100% FREE to create with.  It is an online program so the only system requirement is high speed internet.  Some people have better luck with one browser over another (browsers are free to download) but it typically depends on your version.  I use Internet Explorer almost exclusively.

Create for FREE
Order a 2 page printed 100 year archival quality layout for $6.95 ($5 through midnight MST March 15)
OR order just a digital jpeg file for $2.95 and print ANY SIZE you want, any where. 

If ordering printed layouts- you can order up to about 40 layouts for only $5.95 shipping.

Do you LOVE it?  Join my team and get a 22% discount on all of your Studio J layouts and traditional scrapbooking products! 

Visit my site here and choose where to go... Studio J, Opportunities (to join my team and get your discounted products!) OR shop online if you just want to see our current offering including tons of "while supplies last" items at $1 and up!

Fabric cards class

I am loving our new fabrics in the Spring/ Summer 2013 Idea Book!  Seriously fun stuff.  I know using things like fabric can be daunting to some- but I want to dispell the myth that fabric is JUST FOR SEWING...

Here are four great cards using fabric... none of which require a needle and thread!

The top two cards use the For Always fabrics and the bottom two cards use the Chantilly fabrics.
I am offering these cards as a "No Sew Fabrics" class for only $5.  I was planning to offer this class in my home tomorrow note but find it necessary to change the date to
in Climax, MI (halfway between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek)
Club members can choose to take this class at a discounted rate of only $4 AND anyone placing an order of $25 or more at the class can take it FREE.
Kits by mail can be purchased for $5 plus a $3 shipping fee.  The only stamping that will be completed is the hexagon background stamping on the bottom left card.  Since most people buying kits from me ARE STAMPERS... you can use some of your own stamps to complete the designs.  OR buy at least one of the stamp sets used as part of your purchase and I will stamp pre-stamp all of the other cards for free.  Otherwise, pre-stamping costs an additional 50 cents ($5.50 for the card kit)
Stamp list:
The Happy Couple
Quick Cards- Butterfly

Fabulous You

Kits by mail will begin shipping Monday March 11th and will include full color photos and assembly instructions.  Stamps will ship seperately through Close To My Heart.

Thanks and have a great week!!!
