Last Stamp Camp Card

Hi there and happy Friday!  I'll conclude the week with the final Stamp Camp card from this past Saturday.  The inspiration for this V-Latch technique came from Barb Mullikin's site.  I wanted to use a standard A-2 size card so a minor adjustment to the top measurement was made.  To make it easier for the girls, I made up a template for them to use as a tool in making the correct measurements.  But if you want to try this, measure in 2" from the right side, then from the top of card measure down 2-1/8", which is the halfway point.  Adhere your 2" DSP strip to the right inside edge of card.  With card closed, poke a hole through both layers at that center point marking. Next place opened card front in your trimmer and make a diagonal cut from the center hole to the bottom corner of the card.  Flip around and cut the inside of card from the center hole to the top corner. (Be careful not to rip your DSP since the thickness of this cut is a little more.)  Now you have a V-Latch card!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Here is the card open to give you a better idea what it looks like:

Well, if you read my post yesterday you know we took our granddaughter to the park for a little picnic and fishing.  She has become terrified of geese - and of course there were a couple that swam over and got out to come closer to us.  Wow, did that ever send our granddaughter into hysterics!  We could not convince her that we would not let anything happen to her!  Grandpa and I were trying to shoo the geese away.  I must admit, though, it was a bit unnerving when they'd hiss at me!  The geese finally wondered off when they figured out we weren't going to feed them.  But our granddaughter would not focus on fishing for fear that the geese would come back.  So the whole fishing thing was not too successful.  I asked her this morning if she had fun fishing and she told me no but she liked the picnic. lol

Whoo Hoo, my order just arrived so it's time to go!  Must check out my new goodies AND the NEW catalog!!!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend and thank you for stopping by today!
