World Card Making Day…

Here in Mohegan Lake, New York, we celebrated World Card Making Day a week late. Never the less fun was had by all who attended. Here are a few pictures I’d like to share with you. All the projects featured this week and part of next week are projects we all made at the World Card Making Event. I might add that the ladies who attendee are the best family and friends a Lakeside Stamper can have.

Here are my Lakeside Stamper Ladies creating at full throttle…

Alice, our senor stamper. Alice loves not only the stamping and social aspect, but Alice loves the food…


Aly, my Goddaughter. Always with a flower in her hair and stamping or sketching away. Look for her artwork in the future…

Aly, my Goddaughter

Diane, a stamping addict in the making. Very creative, Diane has appeared on Lakeside Stamper as a featured artist…


Janet, is our “Standing Stamper!”  Janet is not only creative, but adds a perfect balance of compassion and fun to our gatherings…

Janet, the Standing Stamper

Linda & Lisa, my cousins, who are both very, very creative. It must run in the family!

Linda & Lisa

Linda, a fellow stamper in her own right. Linda teaches classes at the local libraries and you can visit her blog HERE.


Lisa & Alice are Aunt & Niece. Alice is giving Lisa advice on stamping. Remember Alice who loves the food? Lisa is ignoring Alice, because Lisa is a Stampin’ Up! demo, whose work is impeccable…

Lisa & Alice
Lynette is a multi talented crafter and does it all. Lynette makes us all laugh and for that we’re all grateful. We just want to know how she keeps her manicure so beautiful????


Nancy last. but not least. Nancy is so dedicated to crafting and stamping it’s hard to believe. Nancy is another multi talented lady and was also a featured artist on Lakeside Stamper…


And, there you have it; a little look into some of the Lakeside Stamper Ladies. Check back for all the fabulous projects we made later this week.

World Card-Making Day…

Unknown-18  Hello Lakeside Stampers!


We had a great time at my World Card-Making Event on Saturday! All in all we made ten cards each using many stamp sets, colors, designer series paper and techniques. After I fed everyone, we had to eat for energy, we got to work. In the next few days I’ll post the cards we made.


Four “newbies” came to the event and I was thrilled to share what I know about card-making with even more potential stampers. Here are some pictures of the girls!.
