In honor of cleaning out my garage, this is a good a time as any to re-purpose all that stuff we’ve been hanging onto for years. This month’s Artist Trading Cards will feature jigsaw puzzle pieces–especially useful when you find that one little piece is missing from the box. What to do with all the rest of them??? Make Art. Yeah. It’ll be a little bit of a project night, some sanding, some painting, some stamping and some beading. And by the end that puzzle piece will have a whole new lease on life as a mini work of art. Join us Thursday, July 15, starting at 6:30 to 8+ p.m., at Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A., call 310 391-0466 for directions. Cost $10. (P.S. Smooch inks will be involved. If you don’t want to wait, feel free to bring your own favorite colors and make sure your name is on the bottles.) Want to go home with other people’s Artist Trading Cards for your collection? Please bring 10-12 cards of your own design (any theme), plus one for teacher Jessica Hollowell and one for our gracious store owner Karen. I have started making 15, just to be sure everyone trading gets a card. See you there!!
