2008 Christmas Card Event

This event is like the Year of Cards Event.

Those of you who attended year of cards will remember 108 card makers squished into a not so big space! We found a new bigger, wonderful space!

However, to make sure we do not end up with a crowded day - Space is Limited – so register right away.

If you have any questions call 815-646-4536 or email

These are the details:

Date: Saturday, October 11th

Time: check-in: 8:15am – 8:45am stamping: 9am – 12pm

Place: Eastside Bible Church 1310 W Jefferson St Morton, IL 61550

Cost: $20 for 11 Christmas cards with envelopes
$30 for 22 Christmas cards with envelopes (2 each of 11 designs)

Bring: Adhesive, Scissors, Card Storage

Don’t delay in sending in your registration and payment as space is limited. Registration will close on September 20th or when all spaces are filled, whichever comes first. Please note that you are not considered to be registered for the event until your payment has been received. Your demonstrator will confirm your registration via email. Please be patient as it may take up to a week after payment is received to get your confirmation.

*This event will be run on a timed rotation giving you plenty of time to stamp thus eliminating the chance of a backlog at one or more stations. Please note that if you arrive late or leave early, you will not be able to stamp the cards from the stations you miss. Thank you for your understanding.

Scrapbook Event was fuuuuunnnnn!

Just wanted to share with you some pictures of the pages I designed for the scrapbook event I participated in last Saturday. Here are two of the 6 pages each participant made.

The first pages show the layouts without pictures and the second two show how they layouts look with pictures.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Just For Fun Fall

I can't leave you with all business is a card I made awhile ago after I was cleaning up and found the watercolored pumpkin piece. I stamped a piece of kraft cardstock using a VersaMarked Twill background stamp. The twill ribbon on the top is stamped using Old Olive Ink. The pumpkins are attached to the card using dimensionals.

Have a great day!
