Fall Conference

I attended the Fall Conference in Edmonton last night and am heading back again today.  It was good to see friends and I enjoyed the structure of the make and takes!  We rotated around to stations making bits and pieces for the projects we put together at the very last table.  We didn't know what things were going to look like until the end.  

We used the new Gift Box Punch Board - I wasn't going to get it…..but I just may have to now!

Well - we didn't created pieces at every station - this is the picture I created with a blind fold on according to the verbal instructions that were given to us.  In a nutshell….
*Draw Niagara Falls on a sunny day
*Draw a maple tree to the left of the falls
*Draw three maple leaves on the tree.
*Draw yourself to the right of the falls - put a bag in your right hand, put some money in your left hand.  Write the word FREE under the bag.
*Draw three of your friends up in the sky
*Ink up the stamp on the table and stamp it on the paper and write your name beside it.
Totally fun!

Have a great day!

Designing for Christmas

This past weekend I was working on designs for my October Christmas Stack.  So - of course I went to Merry Monday to see what they had for a challenge this week.  It was a bingo - so I picked…Red, Ribbon and Embossing.  I think for my Chrtistmas stack I will forgo the ribbon - I like it - but want to keep it as simple as possible for my stampers.

I do love this new Christmas set - It's not really evident, but the branch and cones are done in gold embossing.

I love, love, love the new washi tape in the Holiday Catalogue!  I'm going to have to buy more though if I'm planning on using it at the stack!  I'm going to be using this set at more than one stack this season I'm sure!

Hope your fall is off to a great start and that you can enjoy it before gearing up for the holidays!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hello Tags

Here is another card that we'll be working on this Friday at the All Occasion Stack.  I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps, knowing I wanted to use the new tag punch.  I ran into the problem of not having very many greetings that fit into it…..I'll have to fix that.  So, because of the set I chose to use, I ended up flipping the sketch.

Things are starting to slow down and speed up at the same time - gotta love life! 
Hope your day is going well!
