You can see where I got my ideas from! Stamp Antonio will have the stamps available the day of the class. Of course, while the Basic Grey paper is fabulous, I had to change papers for my cards. I also used fibers I got from Stitches from the Heart. These cards are really fun to make, and I hope I can make some additional cards from the stamps to show on the day of the class.

This is the cute project we did in Hero Arts Club at Stamp Antonio Arts this past week. The idea came from a book I had by Marie Browning on bookmaking (a book I love, by the way!). Here is what you need to make the booklet:
2 4 1/2" pieces of lightweight cardstock or
paper for covers
1 3" paper or cardstock for inside front cover
2 3 1/8" pieces of lightweight chipboard
(You can use the chipboard from cereal boxes!)
1 3 1/2" x 1 3/4" ultrasuede or suede paper for spine
1 3" square post it note package
And you need a gluestick and some white glue. Here's what to do:
1. Decorate your 4 1/2" pieces of paper for your covers, remembering that only the center 3"
2. Decorate your paper for the inside cover as well.
3. Center your chipboard squares onto the backs of your decorated covers, glue down with
gluestick. Miter the corners and fold in the sides. Glue down securely.
4. Attach the suede strip to the edges of each covered piece with a white glue, not a
gluestick. I used Tombow Mono Multi but any white glue with a fine line
applicator will work.
Use only a tiny bead of glue. Hold or press the glued area for a few minutes
until it sets. After the spine edges are completely dry, cut off the excess spine
ends so it is flush with the covers.
5. Cover the inside front cover with your decorated paper. Lay (or glue, if you prefer) the
post it notes to the back inside cover.
6. Add whatever decorations you want. I used a piece of ribbon and an extra stamped
piece on the sample shown. The stamp used for the sample is Hero Arts
Delicate Blossoms CL449. I colored it with Copic markers.

Look at this sample board! All new Hero Arts stamps are now in at Stamp Antonio. I have my eye on the cling pots and pans and the mattress ticking background. And don't you love the way they colored the fruit? I could use the Hero Arts dots or BoBunny dot papers! And the little garden girl is perfect for coloring with Copic markers. I find I am using my Copics more and more--move over Tombow! Can't wait to go shopping this afternoon!

Look at this sample of the new images from Hero Arts! Can you guess which one(s) are my favorites? Hint: I love peacocks! All of the new stamps are available this week at Stamp Antonio. I am going shopping--how about you? Amy and I are just recovering from our fabulous trip to Hero Arts last weekend. That's Amy in the other picture waiting to get started with projects. We took classes from Shari Carroll and Jennifer McGuire. How great is that! And we got a tour of the Hero Arts facility in Richmond. I can't say enough good things about this company--Hero Arts rocks! Stay tuned--I will be posting more pix and stories.
