World Card Making Day Results!

I am so thrilled to announce that we made 120 cards for World Card making day.
These ladies out did themselves.  They were card making machines!
 The assisted living center in Stevi will be so happy!

 This is what 120 cards with envelopes looks like.
Thanks Judy Mae for donating the envelopes!
I designed 2 different cards

 I used the limited edition Thoughtful Branches set above
and the Bloomin Garden set below.

Busy workers
I can't Thank these ladies enough.
In about 2.5 hours they had them all made.

World Card Making Day is Oct 1st this year

I have scheduled Sunday Oct 2nd at 1400 to celebrate and make cards for a donation to the Assisted Living Center.
This is the 3rd year we have done this.  The residents really appreciate having access to cards to send.

Here is the skinny on how this session works:
  • There is no cost to you
  • You can keep as many cards as you would like
  • I only ask that you make some cards and envelopes to add to the donation bin.

    Last year we made 75 cards to donate!
    Come and have some fun making cards for a good cause
    RSVP by Sept 26th if you are planning to help this year 
    (so I can logistically prepare enough space for everyone).
    Hope to see you there!

Stamp Clubs are forming

Hello, I am getting ready to form Stamp clubs for the year.

You may be asking, What is a Stamp Club??
A stamp club is a great way to learn techniques, how to use different
products and you don't have to worry about making a mess or cleaning up your house because I hold all the clubs at my house.  Plus you get together with new and old friends.  Want to make your
own Christmas cards?  Make little gift items?  Sign up for club and learn how.

How it works:
A minimum of 4 people and max of 6 per club.

Each person in the club is committed to participating in each meeting
which is based on the amount of people in the club.  Usually it is
once a month.
     *For example:  if there are 4 people in the club, there will be 4
club meetings and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of
$37.50 per meeting.

*If there are 5 people in the club, there will be 5 club meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $30.00 per
     *And if there are 6 people in the club, there will be 6 meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $25.00 per

Each person will have an opportunity to receive hostess benefits st one
of the meetings.
     *That means you get to choose free stuff from the catalog and
benefit from promotions going on at the time of the meeting. (And
Stampin' Up has a lot of promotions!)
I will go over everything at the first meeting so don't worry.

Comment below by Sept  30th if you are interested.  I will send out a doodle poll to everyone that signs up to determine when the first club night will be.
