Designer Line Up for June!

Welcome to Craft Project Central for June 2017!!

 

 Happy June! This is an exciting month as we have summer almost here, Father’s Day celebrations, and a new annual Stampin’ Up! catalog!  The new catalog brings (much anticipated) new stamp sets, accessories, tools, and new In Colors, just to name a few!  You’ll see in our projects this month, that we’ve used a lot of the new products already to give you great projects that you can use with your new goodies! I always like having additional ideas besides the ones shown in the catalog, as it makes it easier for me to justify all of my new purchases!!

 

We have one new guest designer that I’m excited to introduce to you this month!  Julie DeGuia, who has designed a beautiful card set and matching candy holder!  Make sure and check back mid-month when her project debuts!
