Playful Zany Zebras are sure to bring smiles to all

Everyone once in a while I find a stamp set that just makes me smile and Zany Zebras does just that! These adorable images are whimsical and playful, creating cards suitable for all ages! I had so much fun playing with this set that I created a class to go featuring these Zebras!

Last week I did a quick YouTube video to introduce this stamp set and demonstrate how easy it is to create birthday cards for everyone on your list.

My March Class to Go highlights the Zany Zebras with four fun designs. Class fee includes a goodie bag with over $20 in new Stampin’ Up! products, all the card stock and envelopes to create 8 cards (2 each of 4 designs), color tutorial, Zoom class, and priority shipping to get your class kit to you. This class will introduce our water color pencils and is suitable for all experience levels. You can register for my class here.

Community – what is it? The dictionary definition of community is shown as (1) a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common or (2) a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

Throughout life we are members of many different communities. Some communities are our forever communities (families, school affiliations) and some are short term or seasonal in nature (PTA, sports team, civic groups). But no matter what type of community – long or short term – the fact is we need communities. We all need to be surrounded by people who will celebrate the happy times and support us in the difficult times.

That support system – celebrating the good things and offering comfort during the hard times – is what I love about my Stampin’ Up community. The group that I craft with are always so encouraging to each other and help ease the burden during difficult times. Whenever we get together it’s always interesting! A little crafting, a little whining, and lots of laughter!

Today I invite you to join my community of stampers. I have several classes and events coming up in the next month and I would love to have you join me!

This weekend, September 14 and 15, come visit me at On the Craft Train 1 at the Martinsburg Roundhouse, 100 East Liberty Street, Martinsburg, VA. With over 100 vendors and authors, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Next up is Stampin’ Bingo at the Clarke County Parks and Recreation Community Center , 225 Al Smith Circle, Berryville, VA on September 25 from 6 – 8:30 pm. Come out to play some Bingo, win some new Stampin’ Up! prizes and create 4 make and take projects.
