Scrapping For Smiles 2016 Event

A huge thank you to everyone who came out to craft with us last Saturday.  We had a great time and I think everyone got a lot of projects done!  It was so great to co-host with two of my team members, Erica and Tiffany.

(I didn't get a picture of everyone who was there, I forgot to take pictures until after some had left)

We had giveaways, a goodie bag including a project kit.  A yummy lunch was provided and of course we had snacks to get us through the day.  We had a card buffet available and these are the 3 cards I created.

I have a few leftover and will have them available at Craft Night THIS Friday November 11th.  The proceeds from these cards will be donated to Operation Smile.

More Yuletide Joy

I wanted to use the Yuletide Joy stamp set in a different way, not necessarily Christmas themed.  I saw a similar idea on the Close to My Heart home page.  I loved the color combo and the simple gift stamp with the star colored in with the Golden Yellow Shin Han Marker.  The polka dot paper comes from the Enchantment Fundamentals paper collection.  I used Saffron and Whisper cardstock.  
Of course, I used the shimmer brush on the star.

This one is Christmas themed, but not traditional Christmas colors.  I love our new Adventure cardstock colors and used those as inspiration.  I used Lagoon, Willow, and Raspberry.  A little silver glitter paper to add some shimmer and that was all.  Super simple and easy card.

I am loving this stamp set!  Yuletide Joy is only available during the month of October.  You can purchase this set for $17.95 or for only $5 with a $50 purchase.

All of these products can be purchase on my website

Yuletide Joy - October Stamp of the Month

Isn't this such a fun set?  I love the doodle look.   I have been stamping all weekend and I will share what I have been creating throughout the month.  Do you see that red line around the stocking and star?  This means you can use your Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut these shapes!  Making it quick and simple to create the cards below.

Yuletide Joy (item #S1610) is only available THIS month!  You can purchase this set for $17.95 OR it is only $5 with a $50 purchase.

I used Cranberry and one of Close to My Heart's new colors, Willow cardstock.  I love the bright colors for Christmas!  I simply drew over the stamped lines with Carmine and Vivid Green shin han markers.  The stars on the Cranberry cardstock were embossed with our Confetti Stars embossing folder.  A little shimmer brush on the poinsettia and gold shim trim to finish it all off.

Would you like to make one of these cards for FREE?  Join us Friday October 14th for our craft night class.  Class starts at 7 PM at my home in North Salt Lake.  I will have a few more options available to make, stay tuned!

Please RSVP so I have enough projects and spaces ready.  You can call, text, email or comment in our Craft Night facebook group.  See you soon!
