March and April Events in Fort Myers, FL

CLOSE TO MY HEART with Susan Tomaino
March 2015

It’s spring!  Of course if you live in SW Florida it’s already summer.  90’s this week!!!!  Makes me want to stay inside in the air conditioning and paper craft!

Next month we launch Seasonal Expressions II.  If you have Expressions I you know how exciting this will be!  You can view the pages online at my website beginning April 1 and that is the day orders can be placed for the new product.    I have my new product coming soon so I can get a head start making some samples with new papers, stamps, embellishments, and scrapbooking kits.  OH BOY!!! The new card kit is FANTASTIC!!!! 

March 24 I will be heading north for a week in NC.  My sister will be in town taking care of my mom, so my next event won’t be until April 9.  Check out my schedule below. 

April 9 – Card Round Robin.  Doors open at 9 am and close at noon.  My sister will be joining us before she flies home that afternoon.  We will have a BLAST!!!!  You will have first dibs on some new product at this event, and you’ll be creating two cards using new stamps and papers.  WHAT TO BRING – your favorite adhesive.  That’s it!  $1.25 per card.  Only pay for what you want to create.  Please sign up for this event so I have enough supplies.

April 17-18-19 – Weekend Crop in Estero, Florida.  Another fun filled weekend paper crafting – non-stop if you can stay awake!!!   This is an event organized by Kim Hodges, Scraptique. 

April 25 – All Day Create and Crop.  Come spend the day scrapbooking, card making, or paper crafting!  Doors open at 9 AM and close at 5:00 PM.  Please sign up for this event so there is enough space for everyone.  A simple lunch will be provided.  Cost is $15 or any purchase of $10 or more.

Cards from our last Card Round Robin

We created these cards at our last Card Round Robin.  Take note of who designed each card!

Using the Artfully Sent CTMH Cricut Cartridge, this was a fast and easy card!  The shamrocks were cut with the cricut, green glitter cardstock is attached on the inside, and the sentiment was stamped in topiary ink once and sweet leaf for the rest.  Very fast!

The card on the left was designed by Vickie Richardson and the card on the right was designed by Gina Guri.  Both cards use current paper and stamps.  Fast and easy~

Vickie Richardson designed both these cards.  I love them so much I'm using the same format for an upcoming card exchange with new paper and new stamps (coming April 1).  It's a great way to use paper scraps!

Two more cards created by Gina Guri.  I love the clean lines and sentiment focus of these cards!  

I know some really creative ladies don't I???
Many thanks to Vickie and Gina for their creativity and generosity!  Sharing artwork is a treasure!
