Sassy Stampers news

The Sassy Stampers met on Saturday, May 18, in the Creative Arts & Technology Center, Room 104. Our club is growing monthly, it seems, and that means more fun for all. Sally Hampton was our project lead this month with special assistance from Trudi Searles. The card Sally taught was a beautiful, multiple fold, multiple paper use, masculine card that could be used for Father’s Day or any birthday. With paper changes, this card could be fashioned for any occasion. Thanks, Sally, for all your hard work.

At every meeting, members are encouraged to bring cards that will be displayed in our window exhibit for the club. We have two drawings at our meetings for gift cards at local craft stores. This month the two winners were:

Lynn McKeown – Window display theme winner. The display window committee provides details on what cards they are looking for at our next club meeting. This month’s theme was weddings and anniversaries or cards using silver and gold.

Sally Hampton – Challenge card winner. Every month members are encouraged to make a card they learned from the previous month but with their own flair and theme.

The Sassy Stamper club meets every month on the third Saturday, at 10:00 a.m. Throughout the year, the club makes ten cards. One month out of the year (usually July) is dedicated to learning new techniques. Multiple techniques are demonstrated and taught to the club members during this meeting. In December we celebrate the year with a luncheon including games, prizes and a gift exchange. Annual dues for the club are only $15.

Our club is very involved in Support Our Troops. We have two dedicated members (Marti Goodrich and Sandy Masoner) who lead this very special effort. Dedicated SOT card making days are set up throughout the year where members gather and make these special cards.

Please stop by the Creative Arts and Technology Center and check out our window display of beautiful cards made by our members. We would love to see you at our next meeting on June 15 at 10:00 a.m., in Room 104.
