June Gloom.....the WEATHER!

Here in Southern California we are famous for "June Gloom" where the marine layer causes us to have gloomy, cloudy, and even misty weather the first part of the day till it all burns off for the afternoon.

Much better than the "Santa Ana's" (a hot wind from the deserts that increase the risk of fires), June Gloom is way nicer than its name.

Life's been super busy lately, our daughter just got married and it was the type of wedding where WE did all the work! A small "backyard wedding" should send anyone running for the hills, but we weathered (haha) the storm and it was a charming event! 100 people were invited and about 80 came, it was crazy!

My Simple & Stunning card classes have been super fun lately. I've done a couple of 3-D projects that have been very well received. I'll share one of them here, it is a "Keepsake Box" that actually looks like a book, measuring about 7" x 5" and hold six A-2 sized cards with their envelopes. This makes a super "end of year" teacher gift or you could get started early for birthday and Christmas gifts. The sky's the limit with this cool gift.

All you need is a couple of pieces of matching card stock and some coordinating designer series paper along with a length of ribbon as a closure device. Then some nice tacky Tombow glue, and you are all set. I'll include the link to my YouTube channel so you can check out the tutorial yourself if you like. If you go there, please "like and subscribe" to my channel. I'm shooting for a certain number of subscribers and I'm slowly but surely getting there!!

This is just a quick screen shot of two of the "book boxes" that I demo'd and they are sweet! Please comment if you have any questions or would like more information about my classes or even if you'd like to join my team of Fancy Stampers!!
