Happy Monday!

Whew! What a week! 

Sorry I didn't post last week. I guess I was recovering from the buffet last weekend! 

I just finished my thank you notes to everyone who attended and dropped them in the mail. Who knew that would be such a task!? I ran out of thank you notes!!! I had to make more! 

In my quest to be efficient, I pulled from the Everyday Occasions Card Kit! And I love it! 

These are just a few of what this kit has to make. There's all occasions, too. I just chose to only make thank you cards, being I was in a bind! 

Needless to say, I finished, and just got these notes out to the mailbox. Maybe you'll get one of the ones I pictured? Or one from another stash of mine? 

Either way, I appreciate everyone so much for coming and making all the work so very worth it! 

I know many of you couldn't make it for one reason or another, and I am planning one ONE more session this coming Friday evening, from 6:00 to 8:00. 

Please email me or call me directly to confirm your spot. Don't respond to this blog post if you get them in your email. I won't get it. :(

Thanks again! Happiest Monday!

Hello December!

I'm looking forward to December! Why? 

That's why! 

My most helpful helper and I have already planned out the pages for our Hello December project and after watching this video I can't wait to get a few embellished a bit more. Then all we will have to do is take and print our photos and slide them in... 

Are you planning any December crafting projects this year?

Watch back to see what we've come up with and watch as it changes through the next few weeks!

Anyone Else For An RSVP?

I've had some issues with not receiving replies and RSVPs. Please, if you haven't heard back from me confirming your reply, please email me directly. I would post everyone who's coming for you to check, however I'd rather not post personal names. So please, if you are planning on coming anytime this weekend, and you haven't heard back from me, email or call me directly! 

Thanks! Looking forward to this weekend!

Treats Anyone?

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I posted this picture today. 

This is just option for this weekend's buffet! There will be lots of treats to choose from to suit your sweet toothed loved ones!  This picture is angled kinda funny to show all the elements, but we use the fry box die and some retired tulle ribbon along with the designer craft card stock. I'll do a more in depth post in the days to come if you are interested in any of these products!

Remember to RSVP if you haven't already!

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is planning on some fun today!

I'll be placing an order before the buffet, so if there's something little you need and want to get the flat rate 10% shipping, let me know soon! So check your adhesives and whatnot! You wouldn't imagine what I'm running out of...I've torn through more packs of paper and envelopes than I can count and it's time to replenish!! 

If you haven't RSVPd yet, please do so if you're planning on coming. I may just add a few dates if need be! Also, I've been working on "thank you for coming" gifts, and I want to make sure I have one for everyone :) 

Happy Halloween!

All of this for $25.95!

Christmas Card, Tag & Treat Buffet!

I'm tossing around and stressing out about the dates for my Christmas Card, Tag, and Treat Buffet....maybe too much! I'm worried Saturday will be crazy recovering from Halloween... Thoughts?

As of now, I'm planning on 
Friday, November 7 from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm
Saturday, November 8 from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm
Sunday, November 9 from 10:00 am until 4:00
Monday, November 10 from 10:00 am until 2:00

I will tentatively plan on this coming Saturday and Sunday (10:00-4:00), if there's interest, but would feel better making it even bigger and better the following weekend!

Last month for card class, we filled and did not have a seat for anyone else! So please RSVP to reserve your spot. This is a good time to bring a friend! I will have a special treat for the first 5 of you who RSVP! If we've chatted about it, please still remind  me so I have an organized record!

Keep in mind these times are an open house style schedule, meaning come as soo as you can, work as long as you want, and stay until you must leave! But come in the timeframe that works best for you. 

I will have tons of prizes, giveaways and fun. There will be light snacks and refreshments but feel free to bring something if you're worried you'll be starving and planning a all-dayer! 

Also, for the first time ever, I'm asking that you bring your own adhesive. I will still provide envelopes, though. I will have adhesives available for sale as a cash and carry item if there's something you know you'll need. 

Watch for more details this week and RSVP please! 

Have a good Monday!!

Twenty-four 4.5" x 6.5" designer paper stack sheets

Be sure to let me know if you are planning on making it this weekend.  Saturday is nearing full capacity ;)

Sunday & Monday have plenty of room, and as of now, I may switch gears for Friday and have the Pumpkin gals assemble MPP kits.  Interested?  I have leftovers from old kits and I'll even share this month's if you want.  Let me know!

Wondrous Wreath

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your Monday!  Last week I posted a video featuring the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set and coordinating framelits.  If you were viewing that post in your email, I hope you took a quick minute to click over here to my blog to watch the video.  If you didn't, here's that blog post again.  

As I said before, I was super hesitant to use this stamp set, as it looked "tricky."  Can you believe the genius that thought of the tabs!?  So smart!  I hope they continue this in the future with other non-symmetrical sets.

So after watching the video, I decided it was time to give it a shot.  I got out my stamp set and framelits and created this:

This was my first time lining it all up and it was easy!  With the help of the magnetic platform and photopolymer stamps, it made it almost fool proof!

First I stamped in crumb cake, then used soft suede for the darker leaves, then finished it off with cajun craze berries.  I love that it is a "Christmas" set that can be easily adapted to a fall (or other season) theme.

See that cute little greeting?  It's from "Good Greetings" and can be yours free, when you host a workshop of $300 or more.  Contact me today to snag your spot on my calendar.  We could even make this card at your workshop if you want!  Click on this link to see the entire stamp set, Good Greetings!  It's filled with all holidays and occasions, in this cute handwriting-inspired font.  

I topped off the wreath with a simple linen thread bow and done!  Oh and don't you love that Hardwood background?  It's such a versatile stamp itself!

Keep checking back for more inspiring ideas using this stamp set.  

If you are interested in ordering any of the supplies I used to make this card, click on the links below to add them to your Stampin' Up! shopping cart.  And don't forget the Hostess Code!
