Stampin' Up! Timeless Textures color challenge

Here’s my Stampin’ Up! Timeless Textures color challenge! I love our weekly color challenges!  And this is one of my favorite texture sets.  The painted Harvest sentiment is perfect! 

This card is super quick and easy!  Just start with an A2 size base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  Cut the Basic Black cardstock layer at 5.25″ x 4″.  The stamped whisper white layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 3 7/8″.

The basic black focal strip is 3/8″, the pumpkin pie strip is 1/4″, and the white sentiment strip is cut at 1/2″.  Attach the Basic Black shimmer ribbon knot with a glue dot.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp

We had a great Stamping Cat Crew 2017 Fall Stamp Camp this year!  Lots of new faces, many met at the Evergreen State Fair this year!  Yay!

 

The displays were lovely, full of all kinds of samples from the current 2017 holiday catalog and regular catalog.  In the fall we try to have a full fall & Halloween idea display table and a full Christmas idea display table.  

Every year we include a table of all the current all inclusive kits available.  This year we had some new additions, like the Love Today Planner kit and the Soft Sayings card kit.

We had some demonstrators who taught for the first time this year, they did a fabulous job!  And the feedback I have had from my crafty friends has been all positive!  So looking forward to continuing in our new venue!  It was simply perfect!
