World Card Making Day/Halloween Class

Halloween is still a little ways away, but it is not too early to start preparing for it! This year I am combining a Halloween Class with World Card Making Day. And for the first time, I will be offering two different days for the same class.

The first one will be Saturday, October 4 at 5:30 p.m. (during the General Priesthood Session of General Conference.) This will be a kid-friendly session. Stampers 10 and over are welcome to join in on the stampin' fun (regular class fees apply. Under 16 with a stampin' adult only please.) A free project table will also be set up for those under 10 to make their own project. RSVP by noon on Friday, October 3 (or by noon on Tuesday, September 30 for the Spooky Spider Jar).

The second time will be Wednesday, October 8 at 6:00 p.m. Babes in arms only please for this more adult-friendly session. RSVP by noon, Monday, October 6 (or by noon on Tuesday, September 30 for the Spooky Spider Jar).

Projects are the same for both classes and are a la cart (choose which you would like to make and how many of each):

-Four cards for $5. (That's the World Card Making Day part of the class.) I will post pictures of the cards soon.

- Glass Slipper includes kisses for $3. (Project inspired by a swap I received at Convention from fellow demonstrator Amy Jolley.) This is the most time consuming of the projects but it is perfect for the princess in your life.

- Halloween Treat Basket including decorated peppermint patties for $3. This project features the Big Shot and one of the new exclusive Stampin' Up! dies. Makes a great little gift for a friend, your child's teacher, or maybe your visiting teaching ladies.

- Trick or Treat Bag for $3. Send your little ghosts, goblins, princesses or pirates out with this cute trick or treat bag. There will be different combinations of Halloween paper available.

-Spooky Spider Treat Jar for $20. When I saw this at convention, I knew I had to make one for myself. It features one of the new Decor Elements (available October 1) applied to a glass cookie jar. This is the easiest project of the class. RSVP for this project by noon on September 30 so I can order the supplies (there will be no extras, so if you want to make it, let me know ASAP!)

Stampin' Up also runs a special for World Card Making Day: take 20% off any Simply Sent Card Kit or Simply Sent Card Elements featured on pages 176-177 of the Fall Winter Idea Book and Catalog. Special runs October 4 through October 11 only.

September Hostess Club

Hostess Club will be Thursday, September 25 at 7:00 p.m. at my house. Kayla is our hostess. This fun card will be one of two projects we will be making. It is a fun new technique that allows the images to pop up at you when you open the card. The first picture is the front of the card and the second is the inside. We will also make an additional surprise project (it's even a surprise to me right now!) Guests are always welcome to join in the fun for a $5 project fee that will be waived with any $20 purchase. RSVP by noon on Wednesday, September 24.
