Next month will be hosted by the lovely Dawn at her house, and Leah has generously offered her home for the November meeting. We still need to pick a day for the October meeting though! It is coming up fast.
Leah has requested that we make Luminaries next month, and I think we will try to do something with the Crop-A-Dile too. Anyone else has some requests, just let me know!

This is one of the Christams cards that we will be making, probably the quickest cards of the night.
And this is the other Christmas card we will be making. I plan to do a Christmas card class in late october/early November where people sign up ahead of time, come and make 10 cards for around $10-15, depending on the cost of supplies. If there is enough interest I'll have 2 sessions! Let me know if you are interested.

I used Pink Passion, Whisper White, and Sahara Sand paper. Used the Paisley BG stamp with Passion Pink ink on card base, the Sahara Sand on the Scallop Circle punched white paper. Used a flower from Fabulous Flowers set in circle, rhino from Zoofari set, colored with blender pen and Sand and Pretty in Pink for toes and horn. Handdrew the hat and colored with Sand and Pretty markers, cut hat out and adhered to rhino. Used Crop-A-Dile (LOVE that thing!) to set the pink eyelets in corners after using Word Window punch to do the ticket corners. adhered white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, put a sticky rhinestone in center of flower, put Fruit Punch Stickles on flower petals and tassel on hat. It actually only took about 15 minutes to make since I didn't have to think, just copied it!
This is the Autumn project we'll be doing. I can just picture four 3"x4" pictures (one of each of my kids) around the circle and journaling on the circle. I used versamark ink and pastels to do the leaves and don't you just love the rhinestone brad in the center?! Ok, it looks really great in real life, it is green, and so pretty. I could have kept going adding detail to this page, but I'll let everyone do those things on their own.
I'm excited to see everyone at the party, we are going to have so much fun!

I started with white card stock, sponged some Cranberry Crisp, then some Marigold Morning, but the marigold morning wasn't covering the way I wanted so I used a brayer to put the Marigold on, then sponged some more Cranberry on the paper. Then I used Chocolate Chip and stamps from the Autumn Leaf Prints set, then distressed the edges. I used the word window punch to make the ticket corner look. Matted onto Cranberry Crisp cardstock, then put brads ion the corners, mounted all this on Marigold Morning cardstock and voila, done!
This one is done using the Emerging Colors technique which can be found here
I used the So Very, Fabulous Flowers, and Baroque Motifs stamp sets for this. First I stamped the So Very and "loved" and "sweet" in Wild Wasabi and Bayou Blue, then the flower in versamark, embossed with clear EP and then used the brayer and Blue to cover everything. Stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs with Chocolate Chip. Wiped the ink off the embossed flower, distressed the edges and mounted on Choc Chip and Bayou Blue cardstock.
