Jan McIntire – We R Memory Keepers

Hi!  I’m Jan McIntire and this month I am showing some things I have made using the We R Memory Keepers ® Envelope Punch Board.

This has turned out to be so much fun and so versatile.  Just think: you can make 66 different sized envelopes but don’t stop there.  I made all these items using the Envelope Punch Board and there are many more ideas on the internet.

In fact, I have had so much fun, that I want to share with you.  We will be having a workshop on Saturday, November 16, 10:30 – 3:30 just for playing with the envelope punch board.  Check out the class schedule list for more details.

Poppy Stamps by Elaine Daniels

These cards were created by Elaine Daniels using the poppy set of stamps from My Favorite Things. You can do a lot with one set, obviously!

Jane Aruanno

I started stamping in the late 70’s proving a child could do it…just kidding. Oil painting was my love but in the 90’s when I started working and had limited time to paint, stamping was my creative outlet. I would make a card before going to work and more after work. It is a great stress reliever.

These cards look like my “Blue Period”… mainly because I like blue! I used a Penny Black face and punched butterflies, stenciled butterflies with distress inks. Stamping and Cuddlebug folders make quick cards. The Daisies and Vase are Print Works Collection and Poppies are MFT stamps. I appreciate Claire being in business all these years. It is great to have a stamp store in St. Augustine!

Gail Payette

I was in between life adventures in the year 2000, needed something creative to occupy my time, and happened into a stamp store in Springfield, Oregon, near where I was living then. The owners were offering classes and even though it was hard for me to imagine that I could possibly produce beautiful cards like the ones on display, I jumped right in and began learning.

Whenever one of my friends expresses an interest in taking up card making but says they doubt they have any talent for it, I tell her or him that I initially felt the same way. But once I started practicing basic techniques and experimenting on my own it was only a matter of time until I developed my own “style” and became more self-confident.

If I don’t absolutely adore a card that I’ve made for someone I won’t send it; in fact I ask people to send the card back if they get tired of it – no hard feelings – and I’ll put it in my “favorite card” scrapbook!
