October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!

Thank you for stopping by to enjoy our October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring this month's SOTM - Very Merry Christmas S1210! 

If you've just arrived here from  
  Krista's blog then you are on the correct path.

 I created this standard size card (above) using the Flirty paper pack X7160B. The ornament was created using the "paper piecing" technique and is stamped with Desert Sand and Ruby inks. Ink distressing is done with a sponge-dauber and Cocoa ink. Embellished with clear sparkles and our 
NEW adhesive-backed Silver Shimmer Trim ribbon Z1799.

 ...and here are all the images (below) that are included in this festive holiday stamp set:
You can purchase this stamp set from me now for $17.95 (full retail price) 
or at the discounted price of just $5 with any order of $50 or more!!
(from October 1-31, 2012 only)!
Now you can continue on with our Blog Hop 
and be inspired by more creativity with this stamp set
by visiting my friend Dawn's blog next!

Flirty Fall Scrapbook Page!

(click on my image above to see it larger)

Here's the single scrapbook page I'll be creating with guests at Darla's scrapbooking party tonight. The page features the Flirty papers X7160B, Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements X7160C, and the Love Blooms stamp set C1511. The design is inspired by the Flirty layout shown on page 50 of the Idea Book. The base of the page is Bamboo cardstock stamped with Desert Sand ink. Embellished with Clear Sparkles Z1752.
I'm so looking forward to teaching Darla and her friends all about scrapbooking tonight!!
I'll see you ladies soon! :)

Feel free to contact me anytime if you're interested in hosting your own party, class, or workshop for yourself and a few friends (in my home or yours)! I LOVE every opportunity I get to help my hostesses earn FREE products from me, meet new friends, and share my passion for creativity!

My Moonlight Workshop Projects for 9/22!

I've been busy doing my final preparations for our
  "Moonlight" Workshop that is coming up
this Saturday 9/22 (1pm to 5pm)! 
I am expecting 7-8 participants to attend and I am so looking forward to it!!
I wanted to share all of my projects with you here
so you can see exactly what we're making!
Can you believe that we are making
all of this for just $25?!! 
(or $35 if the attendee wanted the exclusive coordinating c-size stamp set to keep).
I may have one extra card kit left, so if anyone else who hasn't already RSVPed would like to plan to join us at the last minute...please let me know now so I can save the kit for you before it is gone! I also have a few "Avonlea" kits left-over from last month, 
so if you had to miss that one or didn't finish and you want to
use this day to work on Avonlea pages instead, you definitely can!!
(full kits are $25 or you can make the "cards only" for $15 - 4 each of 3 designs)
  If you have another project you'd like to work on,
feel free to bring ANY scrapbooking/stamping supplies
you'd like to use to crop along with us FREE of charge!
Space is limited so please RSVP ASAP to guarantee your space!

remember to bring:

12' Paper Trimmer (if you have one)

Completed layouts you created with us last month

I don't expect you to have everything on this list,
just bring whatever you can!!
 I will have all of these items here on hand for you to use/share also!

I can't wait for all the
creative fun, friends, food, and prize give-aways!!
