May Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome as you have arrived from Kathleen's Blog
I am sure you have been blessed with many ideas for this stamp set.
 I chose to make Sunburst cards using these stamps and our 
Taste Of Summer papers available only in May.
Let me show you how to make a Sunburst card!
Cut three pieces of paper or cardstock to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch size.
Here I used some of the orange paper from Taste of Summer and it's opposite side
along with Topiary cardstock.
Stack the three sheets on top of each other and make cuts through all three pieces
that end at one point (at the bottom here).
Separate the paper pieces and arrange them so they will fit on a piece of cardstock
4 x 5 1/4.  Glue them into place.  You may either leave a narrow space between pieces as 
shown in the lemon cards at the top, or glue all pieces next to each other.
If you leave a space, you will need to trim pieces since they will hang over the edge
of the 4 x 5 1/4 base.
Mount on a standard card base  (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half) and you will have
a border around the edge.  
The other papers in Taste of Summer have strawberries with a pink reverse side,
lemons with a yellow side, limes with a flowered side and a 
variety fruit page with a dark pink reverse. Be watching for the posts about 
Taste of Summer.
Now hop on over to  Jeanie Burch's Blog  
for more inspiration you will enjoy.

Some Taste of Summer Samples

Close To My Heart is featuring the Taste of Summer papers in May to celebrate
National Scrapbooking Month.
You can purchase a set of these papers for $8.95.  There are six different papers and you
get 2 of each.  There is a coordinating reverse side to the papers.   Here are some things I have made with the papers to give you an idea of how fresh and fun they are!  The reverse side is the medallion background for the Sweet Treats stamp.

 See my post about the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for cards using this paper and how to make a Sunburst Card.  Great Fun!!!!!!

May 2015 Projects and Schedule

Here we go for May 2015.  I hope you will see a project you would like to do and either check my schedule to see when you could attend or contact me to have your own party with your friends.
 The Stamp of the Month cards will be made with the Taste of Summer papers available in May
and I will be instructing you in how to make the Sunburst design cards.  So bright and
cheerful!  Make three cards FREE when you submit a minimum $15 order before shipping and tax.  By the way, you may purchase the Taste of Summer papers for $8.95!
 My Scrapbook Plus for May uses the Jackson papers.  Make 2 complete layouts and six cards for $29.  All pieces will be cut and ready for you to put together.  This is a little more than usual because I used the Jackson accessories this time.  
 The Cardmaker Supreme will be $15.  Make 5 each of the cards shown here.  I will have several
sentiment stamps that you may use to finish the inside of your cards.
