It's a Christmas MIRACLE!  I'm posting a sample card for Birthday Card Bonanza!  Join us tonight at 7PM to make a few of these cards.  Your designer paper pattern will vary, since I only have so much of each pattern.  This can easily be a birthday, Christmas, thank you, thinking of you, or whatever kind of card you need this month.

Let me know if you're coming!

Potter's Portkey Camp is Coming!

Next week will be Harry Potter camp week!  This is my third year doing it.  I am working like crazy to get everything ready and I am so glad that I have so many Stampin' Up! products at my disposal.  How would I make this poster look aged without my brayer and sponges?  Not to mention the perfect colors:  River Rock (retired) and Soft Suede.

The kids are going to muster up their best Sirius Black growls and pose for their own "WANTED" posters.  I think they'll love it!

Now I have to head back to the basement and get working on the owls for our daily Owl Post!  Time to get out that Top Note die...

Birthday Card Bonanza - April 2013

It's Birthday Card Bonanza tonight!

After the Color Refresh announcement from yesterday, I figured it must be time to use up some of the colors that will be retiring.  These cards feature four colors that will only be with us a short while longer:  Baja Breeze (sob), Not Quite Navy, Pretty in Pink, and Regal Rose.

As always, cards are just $1 each.  Let me know how many you'd like to make.  We'll start at 7PM.

Happy Stampin'

Christmas Card Crunch!

Hi ladies-

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 1st.  At 10AM, come on over to make your Christmas cards.

The card I have planned is shown here.  We will use the Petals a Plenty embossing folder rather than the one one used on this card.  (Petals a Plenty has the poinsettia flowers all over).

If you'd like to make this card, you just need to own the Frosty Friends stamp!  If you already own it, you're half-way there.  If not, let me know by Wednesday, Nov. 21st so I can order one for you.  With tax and shipping, the stamp is $13.94.

You'll also need a package of Basic Rhinestones, which, with tax and shipping, are $5.78.

Cards are $1 each.  Order in multiples of four.

So, to sum up:

$13.94 + $5.78 =  $19.72
Add on $1 each for the number of cards you wish to make.

If you already own this stamp, then your cost is $5.78, plus $1 each for the number of cards you wish to make.

RSVP by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21ST so I will have time to order all the necessary card stock and accessories.

I could be persuaded to make cards with Come to Bethlehem or Ornament Keepsakes (Holiday catalog) if you'd like to own those sets.  Just let me know!

Happy Stampin'

VC_Rocks! August Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog!  If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived here from Stamping with Janice.  She's always got nice things to share!  If you just arrived here by chance and would like to see the entire hop, just keep going.  There is a link at the bottom of this post to get you to our next stop.  You can also start at the beginning at the VC_Rocks Blog.  (The blog hop starts on Saturday at 10 AM EST, so if you're here before then, be sure to come back to enjoy the whole hop).

Well, it's the last hop of the VC season, and the first one in which I can participate. I have had a busy, busy summer!  This week was no exception.  I lead a Harry Potter-themed week of summer camp at my school. We made these characters on Tuesday.  The camp kids got to make two of them, and they were quite a hit!

I know it's a bit of a stretch to fit in with this month's theme of Big Shot, Punches and Simply Scored, but I did use two of the three!  All the eyes on the four characters were punched with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. Draco's eyes (bottom right) were then trimmed to look angry and menacing. Hermione's hair (bottom left) is, of course, the leftover frame from our ever-popular and versatile Top Note die for the Big Shot.

For those interested, I found pillows on Pinterest that looked like the boys, and immediately thought they'd be a cute papercraft for my summer camp.  The Hermione square is based on a card I also found on Pinterest.  You can find them on my "YAY HARRY POTTER!" board on Pinterest.  Yes, I do love Harry Potter!

The Gryffindor scarves are made with Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard.  Draco's Slytherin scarf is Wild Wasabi and Basic Gray.  Draco's hair is Whisper White sponged with So Saffron.  The base card is 4.25" square of Natural Ivory card stock. Contact me if you'd like more details.

I think I will frame the four of these together and hang them on my classroom wall! I'm going to frame a piece that says, "CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF.  HOUSE ELVES DON'T WORK HERE."  I already have three other Potter-themed posters framed and on the wall.  I will also make signs for my lightswitch that say "Lumos" and "Nox."  Hee hee!  It's going to be awesome.  But I digress.

Your next stop is Elizabeth's Stamp Room.  I can't wait to see what she's got for us!

Happy Stamping!
