October is Coming to an End!

I can't believe that October is almost over! It has just flown by, and Halloween is next weekend! I have busily been sewing my Halloween costume and have neglected my blog a little bit. I will get some of the projects I have been working on posted as soon as possible! Here are some other things for you to look at:

-Passion for Pumpkins
Jeanette Lynton, the founder of Close to My Heart, has a blog that she updates at least weekly. She does a "Color Me Monday" where she selects 4 colors, designs projects and presents them as a challenge or idea launch pad. This Monday, she selected 4 beautiful fall colors and created these 3-dimensional pumpkins made out of paper. Check them out- they are awesome!

-Art & Soul: Fall Surprises
Check out the newest Close to My Heart TV Episode titled Fall Surprises. There are some super cool projects in the episode and they will teach you new techniques as well.

-October Stamp of the Month
Since October is coming to an end, so is the October Stamp of the Month. Holiday Warmth is a great Christmas stamp set that you won't want to miss out on! Check out my prior post.

-Norwegian Epic
I have the opportunity to earn a free cruise aboard the brand new Norwegian Cruise Ship, the Epicby, doing what I love- scrapbooking! In order to earn this great trip I need your help! Ask me how you can help me earn this great trip.

Stay tuned for some new artwork that I have to share, as well as the November Newsletter. There are going to be some great Specials and Sales in the month of November and December to help with Christmas as much as possible!
Let me know when you want to do a Christmas Card Workshop. I can arrange to do one with you and your friends in a location of your choice which can also result in you earning free products!
My next open crop date is November 21, so mark your calendars now!

Scrapbook & Share

Just a reminder that I will be hosting a Scrapbook & Share on Saturday. This is a time to come and work on your own projects, socalize, and get ideas! I will have my collection of stamps, inks, and tools for you to use. If you live in the area, please contact me for more information.

Grace Workshop on the Go

It is time to post about the Grace Workshop on the Go!

This line, which is new for the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book is absolutely beautiful and is filled with fall colors. I instantly thought of the many people I know getting married or throwing anniversary parties in October and how perfect this line would be for them.

This Workshop on the Go includes supplies and instructions to make the 2 page layout and cards pictured above. I include a cutting guide and layout guides to make a ton of additional projects. This format allows you to complete the workshop at your own convenience and can be shipped to anyone out of town unable to attend physical workshops.

The basic kit is available for $29.95 and includes:
-Grace Level 2 Paper Pack
-My Acrylix Beautiful Flourish Stamp Set
-Rustic Edge Anchors (full package)
-Workshop Guide with step-by-step instructions

You can add the following best options:
-Basic Craft Buttons (100 color coordinating buttons for $7.95)
-Crystal Blue Waxy Flax ($3.95)
