The Holidays are great reasons to make & give cards. I know myself that I enjoy giving cards that I've made rather than purchasing them in the grocery store. Its just more special and meaningful. You've given your creative energy in the gift of a card.
These are 3 cards that you can come make with me on Wed. Nov. 5th. Please give me a call or email me if you'd like to come....its only 12.00 for the quickie class and you'll be so impressed with what you've done too!

Here is another card we will be doing at my upcoming Bead & Stampin Bash on Saturday! This one is another FAV of mine....simple but good. Love the smokey quality of the background......come to my Bash and find out how simple it really is! Make sure you visit my Stampin Up website to get a full list of my latest classes.

Yesterday Meg and I gathered at her place and made stuff. I had a bunch of the new double sided Halloween paper from Stampin Up and my Halloween stamps and we had a mission of making at least 3 cards each ....with envelops.
I had it in my head that I was for sure making envelops.....Meg said she would too but admitted that she hates making them. Hmmm, I just couldn't believe that.....they are soooooooo easy and they turn out sooooooooo FUN with that double sided paper. So, to begin, Meg made a card and I created an envelop template for us both...Need I say that once Meg saw my first wickedly cool envelop she was bitten!!! She now loves making them too.
Along with the envelop making, I had to come up with my two card designs that I will be offering at my Bead & Stamping Bash on Sept. 27th. I'll show you one since my photo of the second one (which I made first) didn't come out so well.
The little ding bat spins too....Later this week I'll be making my treat bags that will be up for display at my event. I'm going to show these as kits that you can purchase. They are frightfully fun.....I think I will call on Miss Meg for bag making later this week.

After work yesterday Meg came by and we made some cards. What a great way to end the "workday" and unwind. Yeap. We made Christmas cards and Fall cards. It really is THAT time to start thinking about the holidays!
I made a card after Meg left that I'll be sending her way today...can't show you that one.
My dining room table is a disaster but we had a great time :) I'm heading over to Meg's on Saturday to make Halloween cards & more Christmas ones too. Can't wait, My Halloween stamps arrive on Thursday and I will be looking forward to getting them all day long. I'm like a kid at Christmas about Halloween.
I'm having my first card making and open house on Saturday, September 27th. I'll be showing my Halloween beads & jewelry plus you can sit and make some Halloween cards!!

This card is a first for a couple reasons....1. First card made with my demonstrator supplies I just recieved. & 2. First card of the upcoming Fall season. I'm sure I'll modify my next "Boo! Fall is Coming" card once my Halloween stamps & stuff arrive! Since my Stampin Up collection is just at its beginning stages, I had to use what I had at hand. Kinda like figuring out what to do with what ya got type of thing

My Stampin Up Demonstrators package arrived yesterday! It was like a big Christmas present to myself! Inks, stamps, papers, stuff to clean stamps with....the whole kit and kaboodle! I'm itching to make something.........but that will have to wait until later. We are going to Skeneatlas on the motorcycle today and then to MacKenzie Childs studio. This is just the first of what will be many posts....stay tuned:)
