the remaining three must be 2-1/4". 
If you use a 2" circle, all four of your collages must be a 2" circle.

Good Morning All, 
What a day it's been here in Colorado... 
dumping rain & hail all over our state. 
I was on my way to a doctor appointment when I 
got caught up in some major street flooding. 
Fire trucks passed through traffic & blocked the street. 
A cute fireman went to each vehicle & told us we 
had to turn around...*Home Sweet Home* Bound! 

I thought I would work on my blog for our... 
~August 30th Stampin' Up! Workshop~ 
And...*Summertime* Theme Card Exchange. 
Judy will be our hostess. Yay Judy! 
Hostess Code: A733QVQT 
These cards were planned & created early/mid June. 
Since most of our group had vacations & other activities 
going on through the month of July, we decided to postpone 
our workshop & place online orders until August. Well, as 
you can see by our late date that things are still going on, Ha!

Years before I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, 
I would travel to Fountain, CO for monthly workshops. 
Sarah *MilesOfStamping* showed us this unique fold. 
We followed Claudia Rosa's Tutorial
The {far right} Stampin' Up! Charbon DSP 
was my very first Diagonal Double Pocket Card.  
I Love It! 
Thank You Sarah! :) 

Now It's My Turn... 
I started out by telling the girls that I had a 
Shhhhhh... *Top Secret Card Idea* 
Not knowing what I am up too... 
I ask them each to choose a Stampin' Up DSP 
stack {not specialty} from pages 142-143 of our 
2015/2016 annual catalog. Then I wanted to know 
which one sheet of 12"x12" paper & one color they 
liked best from the stack they chose... 

Michelle~Bohemian, 2nd from right, Bermuda Bay. 
Sue~Bohemian, 3td from right, Rich Razzleberry. 
Linda~Sweet Li'l Things, 4th from right, Watermelon Wonder. 
Lori~Sweet Li'l Things, 5th from right, Tangelo Twist. 
Judy~Sweet Li'l Things, 4th from right, Watermelon Wonder. 
Tracy~undecided Ha! funny girl :) 
Bees or Eggplant, Hello Honey or Blackberry Bliss. 

I now have all their kits together, except Tracy's JK! {haha} 
along with matching card stock & ribbon from the color they 
chose from their stack. They will also make tags for their cards 
using the Scalloped or Ornate Tag Topper punches. 
Make & Take home to stamp as desired :) 

Me~Timeless Elegance, 4th from right, Sahara Sand. 

*Summertime* Theme Card Exchange. 
Make 6~7 cards exactly alike, 
adding a critter {animal, insect, retile etc...} 

~By The Tide~ 
Stamp Sets: By The Tide, Occasional Quotes. 
Card Stock: Fan Fair DSP, Sahara Sand, Watercolor Paper. 
Inks & Markers: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Island Indigo.
