Card Buffet selection

I don't normally post my selection ahead of time, but I thought I would today because I am actually all done prepping a whole day early. That never happens! Here are the October Card Buffet options

What is a Card Buffet? Well it's like a food buffet in that there are a lot of options, and you can get as much of an option as you like until it runs out.  Cards cost $2.50 each or 5 for $10, 10 for $20 and so on.  It is a relaxed atmosphere, you work at your own space at a table, perfect for chatting with friends while you get creative! Come and go anytime during the event.  I have all the supplies you need, just bring yourself and maybe a friend :)
I also added a scrapbook option but here is where there is a difference.  With the cards, if I have left overs I just make the cards and sell them or use them myself, so I pre-cut a bunch of each.  With a scrapbook page, I don't want multiples for myself, so I don't pre-cut these.  If you want to make a scrapbook page at the event, you need to sign up for it and I will have a packet ready for you.  Pages are 1 page $5 and a two-page spread is $8.

 Card Buffet is Thursday night 6:30 to 9:00 or Friday morning
9:00 to noon.  Open to all, even other Stampin' Up demonstrators who just want to stamp with others. 

 Single page would look like this, perfect for  a larger photo.   Add some journaling under the title. This is set up for 12 x 12, but we could make it work for an   8 1/2 by 11 too.    This is a page found on the Facebook group Scrapbooking global, made by Julie Davies.  This is a great site for those who like to scrapbook.  Join us!
 You could also put two photos on the page like this...

or you can make the page hold 3 photos like this.  What ever works for you. 

If you want to make a two-page spread, we can add a coordinating page for an additional $3.

Fall projects

I am sharing some older projects again in case ou missed them in the past.  I have been super busy around here, and my house has construction going on, nothing fun, new furnace and duct work type stuff, and so I have been keeping clear of my craft room and cleaning up dust all week. I realized I hadn't posted anything in a while, so I thought I would share some fall projects!

These fun test tube holders, single or double are easy to make and I have some test tubes if you are looking to by some.

 This 'Blessing Mix' is great for your Thanksgiving table, and I have a free printable for the poem on the back at this older blog post:  
Great for teachers, co-workers or anytime you need a quick thank you.  The paper shown is discontinued but you could use some of the pretty new papers for this. 

And these easy peasy pumpkins are great to stuff with a bit more for the kids you know better who may be knocking on your door in just a week or so.   I stuffed mine with those plastic vampire teeth and some candies.  So easy to make with tissue paper and washi tape!

Make A Wish Sponged Background Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing another card from the sponge class I had last week.  This card uses the fun Broadway Birthday stamp set and coordinating Broadway Lights Framelits.  

I used a Sponge Brayer and Wink of Stella splatter to create this pretty background.  The Navy cardstock underneath peeks through the off set die cut letters, that are popped up with Foam Adhesive Strips (on sale now as part of the World Card Making Day promotion).
